Playtech’s games tend to feature graphics that look smooth and competent, rather than outstandingly detailed. The Wolf Gold online slot fits this pattern. The game’s reels are set on a rocky frame in front of a desert mountain scene that could come from an American state like Arizona or New Mexico. The colours are burnt orange and purple, and the game looks good without ever being really immersive. It certainly looks better than other wildlife slots, though, such as Wolf’s Den from Playlabs, or Wild Wolf from IGT.
The music is not the greatest we have ever heard in a slot, and you’re sure to be reaching for the mute button after a while. There are some nice touches when it comes to sound effects, with the cries of various animals being heard as you spin the reels. Again, though, the sounds can become pretty grating after a while. This is not a slot where you need earphones, it’s fair to say.
Spot the Wildlife on the Reels in the Wolf Gold Online Slot
On the reels themselves, the symbols look pretty sharp, but do not have the detail that you will find in games from Play’n GO, for example, such as Gunslinger Reloaded. The lower value symbols are the usual letters associated with playing cards. The higher value symbols are animals. You’ll see bison, a mustang, a wolf, a mountain lion and a bald eagle on the reels as you play. The images are cartoon style, and they certainly do the job without looking wonderfully striking.
The wolf of the game’s title is the wild symbol, and it replaces all other symbols to form winning combinations for you. It also howls when you spin in a win that features it, which is a nice little touch of detail from the developers.
The scatter symbol is a mountain landscape, so it is pretty easy to spot. It can land only on reels 1, 3 and 5, though. It plays a vital role in the game’s bonus features, which we’ll look at in detail later on in this Wolf Gold slot review. There is also a full moon symbol which triggers another of the game’s features. Read on to find out more about this.
