Wolf Run is a popular Vegas slot that has been made into an online version by IGT (who’s online division were formerly called Wagerworks). Unfortunately for many players, the casinos that run this software generally don’t accept players from America, however if you are eligible to open an account, the casinos are all top notch – for a list of casinos that run IGT (Wagerworks) software click here.
As for Wolf Run as a game, well, it has 5 reels and 40 paylines and you can bet 1 to 5 credits per line. There is a wild symbol as well as a bonus symbol, though this does not trigger a bonus round as would be found on some of the newer slots. Instead, 3 bonus symbols scattered pays 2x the bet for that spin, and a bonus symbol anywhere on reels 2,3 and 4 will activate the free spins. These can be re-triggered for a maximum of 255 free spins!
Where this game comes into its own, is what are referred to by IGT as stacked wilds. This is where on a reel you’ll get multiple wild symbols next to each other. Whilst this is useful, it really pays off when you get a couple of these babies lining up across several paylines, and this can produce some really great wins.
That said, according to Virgin Casino, the expected long term return to player is 94.98%. There are other slots out there that will pay higher, but it’s just not the same now is it? By the way, if you are an American player and still want to play, you can buy the slot as a game from Amazon!
