Wolf Moon Pokies Review

Six reels? Four rows? No, you're not seeing things. That's how Wolf Moon is set up. It also means that there are plenty of ways to land wins.

But, with no real jackpot, is there enough here to keep Aussie players happy? In our Wolf Moon review below, we attempt to find out.


At first glance, there doesn't seem to be anything too fancy about Wolf Moon – reel icons featuring all kinds of animals spin in front of a beautiful sunset while ambient casino chatter (which, to be honest, we always mute immediately) plays in the background.

But there's more than meets the eye going on here, with luminous green snowflakes falling from the sky as a scatter bonus. The game never quite explains what these are supposed to represent – other reviewers have suggested that it's a radioactive snowstorm heading for the wolves’ habitat(!) – but we're happy to just go with it.

Of course, there's the occasional howl, but the sound effects are otherwise the same as in any other Aristocrat title, which is a bit disappointing. Some Native American flute in the background combined with custom sound effects for each animal would help to make the game much more engaging.


In a move that's practically unheard of, Wolf Moon adds an extra row and reel to the layout of a typical 5-reel 3-row slot, giving it 6 reels and 4 rows. It employs the Xtra Reel Power system in place of paylines, meaning that there are literally hundreds of different ways to win.

There's just one problem with all this. There are so many different reel icons – wolves, bears, moose, puffins, wolf pups and wolves, PLUS 9, 10, J, Q, K and A – that it's difficult to get a decent line of any of them going.

The potential to win big during standard play is definitely still there, and it does happen sometimes, but it's not as easy as you might think when you first boot up the game.

The bonus round, which consists of between 12 and 40 free games depending on how many scatters you land, is triggered by 3 or more glowing snowflakes and activates the Lucky Zone. Whenever a wild lands in the Lucky Zone, it turns all of reels 3 and 4 wild and respins the other reels.

t would be nice to see a dedicated multiplier, even if it was only 2 or 3x during the bonus round, but the Lucky Zone means that you usually see plenty of action during your round of free spins.

Added Value

Well, we need to point out that this game has no jackpot. Actually it does, but it's only 625 multiplied by the reel cost. Even at the maximum bet, that comes out at around 1,000 AUD. So why play Wolf Moon?

Well, the game is probably more one for people who enjoy playing slots for long periods at a time. The huge number of paylines, thanks to the extra row and reel, means that you can while away the hours playing this one without hitting your bankroll too hard provided you bet carefully.

It's definitely not one for Aussie players who live to chase massive jackpots!


With six reels and four rows, all stacked with custom animal reel icons, Wolf Moon offers a slot experience that's a little bit different. There are literally hundreds of ways to win and between 12 and 40 free spins available with Lucky Zone respins when you land certain wilds, which can make for a great session. But with no jackpot to speak of – the grand prize tops out at around 1,000 AUD – it's unlikely that you'll want to spend much time on this one unless you're a big lover of low variance slots that will let you stretch a small bankroll over a long session.
