With a fast tempo and plenty of sticky wilds and multipliers, this Rockabilly Wolves mobile slot brings some cool 1950s vibe to the reels.
As we were playing this Rockabilly Wolves slot online, we couldn’t quite place our finger on why this game felt so familiar.
The theme is certainly different, bringing a cartoonish Tex Avery style wolves with an Elvis flair, and tunes to match in the background. That said, once you look a little further you’ll notice that the rest of the symbols are pretty basics.
From Cherries to Ace to J symbols, to the slot title, it’s not doing an awful lot with what could have been an imaginative and fun theme.
This feels familiar because at heart this is as classic in look as it is in mechanics.
Rockabilly Wolves comes with 5 reels, 20 lines video slot with stacked wilds, stacked high paying symbols and free spins with sticky wilds.
There’s not much more to it than that, and you can find more modern fares with far more impressive animations that bring you similar gameplay; the Cazino Cosmos slot for one, Wild Falls by Play’n GO for two.
But, just because it’s not re-inventing the wheel, doesn’t mean it’s not huge fun to play. Yes the animations don’t pop, but the wins certainly do, and the paytable pays well for 5 of a kind.
During the Rockabilly Wolves free spins, you start with a 2x multiplier and one wild sticky on screen at all times.
You then have two types of sticky wilds. The one that shows up and stays there for all 9 spins, and the one that also increases the multiplier – all the way to 6x the original paytable amount.
Get three sticky wilds on reel 2, 3 and 4 and you also get an additional 5 free spins, making it easier to get those bigger multipliers and that top win of over 6,000 times your bet.
That said, you only need a 2x or 3x multiplier to get some decent payout – far more than in JFTW’s Shogun of Time slot which we rated pretty highly with it’s pretty graphics, but didn’t quite get the big wins.
Rockabilly Wolves may not be as animated, but it sure has those big wins, and isn’t that about 80% of what makes slots fun?

Stacked Wild: The 3 Wolves are the stacked wild symbol, standing 3 symbols high and showing up on all reels of the base game - not the free spins. They have two other types of wilds.
Wilds can be used to replace any other symbol to create a win on one of the 20 paylines.
Stacked High Paying Symbol: Not just the wild, but the top 3 high paying symbols always come stacked 3 symbols high, very much like the Yggdrasil Dr Fortuno slot.
Scatters and Free Spins: The Free Spins symbol is the scatter and if it lands on reels 2, 3 and 4 you trigger 9 free games.
The scatter on reel 3 will convert into a sticky wild and give you a starting 2x multiplier.
You can then catch further normal wild sticky symbols or sticky wilds that will increase the multiplier by one. Get three multiplier wilds on reel 2, 3 and 4 and you get an additional 5 free spins,
The best video slots are the ones that surprise you. This Rockabilly Wolves slot didn't quite do that, but it still has enough fun features that we'd happily take a spin, especially as it has a low minimum bet of 0.10.
We wish with such a fun theme that there had been a few more fun animations, like in the retro Banana Rock slot which brings the 60s vibe alive but with animals.
Still, what these wolves have that the monkeys don't is a much higher top win of 6,411 times your bet, and lots of stacked wilds and stacked symbols. Add sticky wins with every spin and multipliers that increase up to 6x, and it reminded us a little bit of one of our old favourites Dead or Alive by NetEnt.
In short, a fun mish-mash of features with a fun easy rock n roll theme.
