As we get on with our busy lives these days, it’s sometimes easy to forget to look around once in a while and appreciate the natural beauty around us. I was reminded of that when I started playing NextGen Gaming’s “Wolfpack Pays” slot.
This nature-themed slot is easy to navigate and for those who enjoy using simpler and uncluttered layouts. You can also hope to get some free re-spins and maybe even go “WILD” (pun intended) with the Wolfpack. Check out the amazing screen shots under the cut.

Before we begin our adventure into the wilderness, let’s cover a few of the fundamentals of this slot. Wolfpack Pays has 5 reels and a grand total of 243 paylines or ways to win. Whether you’re just looking for some fun or are in it to win it, the slot can be played from 40p to £80 per spin.
The symbols in this game involve heart, diamond, ace and club gems in eye catching, vibrant colours as well as a lone wolf, a wolf howling at the moon and an eagle. These are comparatively a smaller number of symbols compared to what we’ve seen so you could probably easily get yourself a win.
The theme is aesthetically pleasing to say the least with a lot of bling and shiny animations which give this slot its magical feel. Even the WILD symbol is a realistic illustration of a majestic wolf. The game also comes with two captivating backgrounds – a river in the wilderness in the sunset as well as in the night where there is immense detail of the moon and stars as well as a few fireflies.

The lone wolf symbol is the Wild and substitutes for all other symbols in the game to complete winning combinations when possible. This symbol stands two places high which means you have double the chance to hit a winning combination when this symbol appears on screen.
An exciting feature of this game is the On-A-Roll Re-spin feature which allows you a re-spin for any win you get. Following that, you will also get extra stacked 2 wolf wilds after each win. They appear on the third reel after the first win, and then they will also appear on the second, third and fourth reels on the second consecutive win, followed by the last reel on the third consecutive win. However, if you don’t get a consecutive win, these will reset.
I like the little detail that NextGen has added at the top right corner of the screen where the silhouette of four wolves represent each consecutive win. Each wolf is given a running animation whenever you get a win. It really adds excitement and spirit to the game as it keeps track of your wins.
Another great feature is the Free Games feature which is triggered by getting 4 consecutive wins. Here the Wolfpack feature applies as 5 extra wolf wilds can be added on every single free spin. The feature only ends when you have 3 non-winning free spins and 3 paw tokens disappear from the paw meter above the reels as a result of the non-winning free spins.

NextGen Gaming has done it again, creating a slot with beautiful graphics and detailed sound effects that convey the mysticism and wonder of this magical world. Despite seeming old-fashioned, the game runs smoothly across all devices on various platforms making it extremely versatile. Even after playing this game for over 45 minutes continuously, we encountered zero lags or flaws in the game. Rest assured, this game run smooth as silk every time, everywhere.
While Wolfpack Pays has an average number of bonus features compared to other slots, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. As long as you’re able to max out your free spins, they’re pretty much the only bonus feature you’ll need to get yourself good wins. The chances of bigger wins over multiple ways to win do happen, but we think that an average of about 20x to 40x is probably more realistic.
All in all, Wolfpack Pays is a pretty bare bones game with all the basic features you would want in a slot, but it has it advantages too. It isn’t as cluttered and complicated and the rules are simple: get free consecutive wins in the base game for free respins and the Free Games bonus feature involves 5 extra wolf wilds. If you can get one or both of those, then you’ve pretty much got it down.
