The Cossacks The Wild Hunt slot has 6 reels with an inner and outer reel that together can give you 46,656 ways to win and up to 10,000x your bet max win.
We can talk all about the casino game theme of this Cossacks The Wild Hunt mobile slot, but to be honest we only have so much space. So let’s just say that the Slavic animation and sounds work really well for this dark and dangerous game.
What you have as you open this 6×6 reel slot machine is an inner ring and an outer ring. In total, you get 46,656 ways to win, but reel 1 and 6, as well as the top row, come with blocker symbols.
These have no paytable value and literally block your wins as you need to get symbols on adjacent reels from left to right to get a win. But with a low minimum bet of 0.20 a spin, Cossacks The Wild Hunt is technically very affordable. Technically.
Press the Foxify button and your bet will increase by 5 times. Turning the minimum bet to 1 a spin, which is a little less affordable if you have a conservative budget.
But what happens then is that the blocker symbols all disappear, both in the base game and the free spins bonus. Not only does this increase your chance of getting wins, but of catching the 4 scatters to get you the bonus.
Because what makes the Cossacks The Wild Hunt slot game special is the avalanching reel and the multipliers. For every win, not only do the winning symbols explode, but the win multiplier increases by one.
Granted the multipliers in the base game probably won’t go more than 3x or 5x. But you do get swords and arrows randomly helping trigger wins by changing symbols or adding wilds.
So how do you get there? You join the wild hunt of course. Catching the word HUNT and you’ll win 8 free spins. Whether you trigger with blockers or no blockers all depends on whether you’ve foxified the reels.
What kind of results did we get? Without the Foxify we win maybe 50x to 100x our bet. With Foxify and having more reels, we managed to win over 600x our bet.
It’s clearly easier to get bigger wins because unlike the base game the multipliers here do not reset. So much like in Megaways slots, every single win increases the multiplier and there’s no limit.
Do we prefer this game at the bigger Foxify bet? Absolutely. It’s volatile, it’s fun, and whilst not impossible to win with the blockers, it’s clearly made to be played with the full hunt open for all.
And it’s certainly better than the Stumpy McDoodles slot, another Foxium game but without the punch of this Cossacks The Wild Hunt.

Wild: The 'w' symbol can substitute for other symbols to complete winning combinations. It won't substitute for scatters.
Blocker Symbols: If you don't turn on the Foxify button, around the reels you might have the blocker symbol which does nothing more than block wins. It has no paytable value and looks like an 'X'. The blockers only show up on the outer ring of the wonderways.
Wonderways: You have an outer reel and an inner reel zone. The outer zone includes reels 1and 6 and the top row of the reel grid. The inner zone includes reels 2, 3, 4, and 5.
The inner zone gives you 6,525 ways to win, whilst if you add the outer reels you get a total of 46,656 ways to win.
Cascading Reels: On every win, the symbols explode, and more come tumbling down. Every cascade increments the win multiplied by 1. This multiplier resets to 1 after each spin.
To Arms: Arrows can fly at the reels on any spin. Any symbols that are hit will change and create a 6 of a kind win.
Release The Wilds: Blades can smash into the reels randomly/ Any symbols that are hit are turned into wilds to create a winning combination.
Free Spins: There are four scatters that show up on the inner reels 2-5. If you spell the word HUNT you will activate 8 free spins. Every scatter in the base game will then give you an extra +2 free spins. You also get Axe symbols appearing in the inner ring, and every ax is then collected. 3 extra free spins will be awarded for every 4 Axe symbols collected.
During the Cossacks The Wild Hunt slot free spins the multiplier increases by one on each win and does not reset between spins.
Buy Free Spins: You can buy 8 free spins with a starting multiplier of 1x, 10x, or 20x.
Foxify: Activate the foxify mode by increasing your bet by 5 times. This removes all blocker symbols from the reels and increases your chance of triggering the free spins.
Look, there's no denying that if you bet 5 times your bet your experience of this Wonderways game is vastly improved.
But the reason we gave this Cossacks The Wild Hunt slot review 5 stars is simply that it works even with the Blocker symbols.
Because the free spins with those increasing multipliers are where you'll get most of your wins, and where you'll reach that 10,000x your bet max win. Is it more likely with no blockers? Sure.
But this is a fun game no matter how you play, but definitely best left to those with a bigger budget and the experience to know when to walk away. Even better than the Astro Legends slot.
