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.
