More about the Software Provider

Alongside Playtech, IGT, and Microgaming, NetEnt is one of the most popular online slots manufacturers in the world. All of NetEnt’s recent releases are produced in a mobile-friendly format called Touch, which lets you take your favourite slots from the brand with you wherever you go.

NetEnt has covered a multitude of genres with its online slot catalogue to-date, including horror (e.g., Dracula and Frankenstein), music (e.g., Guns ‘n’ Roses and Jimi Hendrix), and oriental (e.g., Koi Princess and Lights).

Appearance and Sound Effects

The snow is falling thick on the ground as you enter the forest home of Wolf Cub. The playful cub sits expectantly at the left side of the screen, wagging his tail and breathing out through his mouth to watch in fascination as a cloud of steam forms. A Disney-style soundtrack gives the winter wonderland surroundings a sense of magic, but the real magic happens when you start spinning the reels.

To start with, you can form winning combinations from left-to-right across the screen with a variety of symbols including paw prints, clubs, spades, diamonds, hearts, owls, leopards, bears, elk, wolves, and a full moon. The most valuable of these is the paw print which awards 100, 500, and 2,000 for three, four, and five-of-a-kind. You can also win prizes through the game’s special features, which we’ll cover in the next section of this review.

Bonuses and Special Features

The icy paw print with the word “WILD” across it is the wild symbol in the Wolf Cub slot. Wilds can appear on any of the five reels and can substitute for any symbol bar the scatter.

The scatter is easy to spot as well, as it’s the image of a full moon with “SCATTER” written across it. You need at least three scatters to trigger the Wolf Cub Free Spins Bonus. When the Bonus is activated, all of the visible scatter symbols on the reels are assigned numbers, which are then added together to give a combined total. The total is the number of free games you receive.

The final feature of the game is a particularly good one. The Blizzard Feature can only be triggered within the Free Spins Bonus, and it occurs when a full stack of symbols appears on Reel 1. It causes all other matching symbols on the other reels to spread towards the first reel, filling all of the spaces between them with the matching symbol. Wilds can be used in the Blizzard Feature, and in this scenario, the opportunities for creating multiple winning combos are immense.

Paylines/Reels

Wolf Cub uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and twenty paylines, and has an above average RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 96.34%.

Mobile Compatibility

The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
