You are firmly on the side of the wolves here as you slowly turn each and every single villager into your pack in this Curse of the Werewolf Megaways slot online.
Set somewhere in the moors of England at the turn of the Century, you open up 6 reels where on every spin the number of rows will change. Will you get 1,000 or 117,649 ways to win, or something in between?
Under license by BTG, Pragmatic Play slot studios have created their first Megaways game with this Curse of the Werewolf mobile slot, and we have to say that we enjoyed it.
The card suit symbols for low paying symbols is fairly unimaginative, but each of the high paying characters stands out in the reels, and the features perfectly reflect the myths and legends of the werewolf. Though this is definitely more on the fun than creepy side when it comes to slot themes online.
For one, the base game doesn’t have avalanching wins like most other Megaways games such as you’ll find in our Bonanza slot review or our Gonzo’s Quest Megaways review.
Which could make the base game feel a little slow, but they’ve peppered it with mystery symbols and two random bonuses that trigger often enough for us to pay attention.
One adds stacks of high paying symbols, the other gives you a guaranteed win on your next spin. The wins don’t have to be huge, but there’s a thrill knowing the reels are spinning for a win.
But, it will surprise no one that the free spins are where all the teeth and claws are hiding in this volatile phone slot.
Our main surprise came when we triggered the free spins and found that there wasn’t a single multiplier on sight. This Curse of the Werewolf Megaways video slot relies completely on the paytable to give you huge wins.
Thank-fully the way it gives you hope for those bigger wins is pretty clever. During the free spins bonus a special gold wolf symbol will attack the villagers. If he attacks a villager 5 times, he turns that villager into a wolf.
The Wolf is the highest paid symbol on the reels. Theoretically, with enough free spins and golden wolves, you could turn all of the high paying characters into wolves and play on a game with stacks and stacks of the high paying symbol.
Chances are, you won’t. More likely you’ll turn one or two symbols max, especially if you only have 8 Curse of the Werewolf Megaways slot free spins. Still good fun, and even with just those two extras, we found ourselves with some decent money to cashout.
Decent wins, if a little frustrating at times, you need to be a fan of the genre to enjoy this game. Still, at least it’s better than NetEnt The Wolf’s Bane so that always a nice tip of the hat for Pragmatic Play.

Wild: The scratched out poster is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols except bonus, mystery symbol and wolf wild symbols (free spins only).
Mystery Symbol: The howling wolf is the mystery symbol and when it appears on the reels they transform into any of the same paying symbols randomly.
Spin Modifiers: Randomly on any spin, you may trigger one of two features -
Bonus Free Spins: The Bonus scatter will trigger this bonus Curse of the Werewolf Megaways slot feature.
During this feature, a special golden wolf symbol is added to the reels and pays like the high paying wolf symbol and can be part of a payline with that symbol.
The difference is that when the golden wolf shows up he starts attacking the other high paying symbol. Each symbol has 5 lives, so when 5 gold symbols show up (at once or over multiple spins) he turns that symbol into a wolf.
You therefore progressively get richer reels as the symbols upgrade to the highest paying symbol on the paytable.
If you love Megaways slot machines, you will love this casino game. It has all the right mechanics, and even though you don't get multipliers in the free spins, you don't miss them.
Curse of the Werewolf Megaways slot still have astounding wins of 40,000x your bet or more, and getting those progressively richer reels makes it feel exciting.
On the other hand, if you are not a fan of these Megaways game mechanics, there's nothing here that will change your mind. It's a beautiful game, with lots of reels, lots of symbols and lots of ways to win.
And also lots of frustrations. If you can accept it, time to start hunting some villagers.
