One of the most popular slots in brick and mortar casinos in Vegas, this Wolf Run slot is an IGT classic that should appeal to all.
Three points you’ll notice when you load up the Wolf Run mobile slot. First, it’s better in portrait as it takes the full space of your mobile phone screen. Second the graphics are not in high resolution, so can appear a little blurry on your iPad or tablet.
And finally, the minimum bet for this 40 payline, 5 reel video slot is huge if you play on free play mode to test out if it will work on your device. Don’t be alarmed, as a real money slot it has a much friendlier limit, as you can see in our overview below.
If you can move past the first two points above, you’ll get a an IGT mobile slot machine that has had years on the Vegas floor honing it’s skills as one of gamblers all time favourites. It does mean it looks a little dated, and is in fact a very simple slot. Unlike Transformers: Battle for Cybertron game which has a robot load of features, Wolf Run mobile slot is very simple, with stacked wilds and a free spins feature.
The stacked Wilds feature, especially, will thrill gamblers as they line up on the screen and you get lucky. That said, with a payout rate of 94.98%, the mechanics of this slot closely resemble the offline machines, so despite not hitting big often, you’ll still need to be careful with your budget.
It’s the free spins you’ll be howling at the moon to get, with richer reels and extra stacked wilds giving you more chances at getting decent 5 of a kind wins.
The sounds are those of any standard slot machine, turning automatically with no special thrill. However, the howl of the wolf during big wins certainly brings this mobile video slot a little extra punch, and the graphics themselves, whilst not high res, have a certain charm. With Native American totem poles, beautiful wolves and your standard high cards on display, it’s a theme that works for its simplicity.
It’s not revolutionary, but with so many loyal fans world wide, no doubt it’s making a welcome entry to the IGT mobile slot portfolio. In fact, it was so popular that they made copies of the slot if you fancy trying a different theme, such as Grand Monarch or Lil’ Lady slot.

Stacked Wilds: This is the bonus feature you'll love the most, appearing often in the main game, and far more often during the free spins. This stacked wild is represented by the howling wolf to the moon, and got us the big wins.
Free Spins: Get three bonus symbols on the reel 2, 3 and 4 and you'll activate 5 Free Spins. These are re-triggerable up to an impressive, but elusive, 255 times. We rarely re-trigger and when we do, it's once or twice at the most.
However, usually you can get a decent amount of cash during the free spins round as the payout increases and the stacked wilds come fast and frequent.
This IGT Wolf Run mobile slot won't appeal to everyone. The graphics, for one, can appear less than lacklustre on tablets and the slot doesn't pay as often as we are use to seeing on online video slots.
But if you enjoy the land based slot and like a little feel of what it's like to play on the original video slot machine, this is one of the all time greats, straight on your mobile.
We tried it on several devices and found it worked perfectly, but not just that, on smartphone, the lack of graphical display is actually an advantage, giving you exciting wins, without breaking the connection. The Stacked Wilds are the real draw here, giving you the big wins if you are patient enough to stick with mobile game for a while.Play Now at Leo Vegas »
