See the Wolf Run the Reels
There is something about the combination of quiet majesty and intense ferocity of the wild wolf that has captured the human imagination since time out of mind. Some Native American tribes worshipped the wolf as the cunning god of the hunt whilst others even held the animal up as the ultimate creator god.
In the present day, popular culture is still littered with references –both oblique and obvious – to untamed ancestor of man’s best friend. Slot machine software developers often take up the wolf theme and Interactive Gaming Technology is among those that love it best.
Wolf Run is but one of several slots in the IGT portfolio inspired by the great Canis Lupis, with two other titles of note being Wolf Rising and Wild Wolf. The logos of all three of these video slots depict a wolf howling to a moon in the background. The primary visual difference between Wolf Run and the other wolf-themed IGT slots is that is set in a green summer landscape instead of a cold and snowy North American winter.
Symbols in the Wolf Run Slot
Visually, Wolf Run is almost identical to its sister slot, Wild Wolf so players familiar with the latter game can expect to find very similar graphic elements and symbols in Wolf Run. The main difference is that, where Wild Wolf, which is the older of the two, uses drawings and illustrations, Wolf Run uses actual photographic imagery.
Among the symbols that appear in the Wolf Run slot are a variety of wolves, totem poles, the howling wolf wild, the dream-catcher bonus, and the standard high-value playing card symbols 9-A.
The Wild Howling Wolf Symbol
As in Wild Wolf, the wild symbol in Wolf Run is the howling wolf, who maximises players’ odds of winning as he raises his melancholy voice to the moon.
The Wolf Run wild symbol can substitute all other symbols, except the dream-catcher bonus symbol, in order to help create winning payline combinations.
The Dream-Catcher Bonus Symbol
Once again, the bonus symbol in Wolf Run is identical to that in Wild Wolf and takes the form of Native American dream-catcher made of feathers and colourful beads.
The dreams caught by this particular talisman are free spins. When three or more Wolf Run bonus symbols appear on Reels 2, 3 and 4, players are awarded five free spins. All Wolf Run free spins wins receive a 2x multiplier and it is possible to trigger more free spins during these rounds.
Betting on the Wolf Run
The paylines in the Wolf Run slot are not adjustable, which means that players have to wager on all 40 of them every time they spin. The wagering starts fairly high at 1.00 credits per line and can go all the way up to 50 credit s per line, for a max wager per spin of 2 000 coins.
The howling wolf is the most valuable Wolf Run symbol as it pays out a handsome, with a payout of 1 000 coins for five or a kind on a single active payline.
