Don’t get caught under the blood-red moon in The Wolf’s Bane slot. You may find yourself wishing for the thrill of meeting some real werewolves…
There’s something about this theme that we love. Imagine this: you’re welcome down a dark path. The trees are whistling in the winds with an eery glow, promising a full moon tonight.
You find a small village where, crowded round the only pub in the area, sit the locals: men with suspicions backgrounds, holding shovels, crossbows or recently bloodied. The barmaid hands you a pint and a light, and you know you’ve come to the right place: The Wolf Bane slot.
Because you’re not worried. Oh no. The twist in this tale is that the trees and moon don’t bother you at all. You’re here for dinner, and any of these tasty crunchy villagers will do.
NetEnt Game studios know how to create effective themed slots. This isn’t new. From the howling wolf on the top of the pub during the free spins to the music building up to a crescendo whenever you win, this is exciting to watch.
It’s a shame then, that with this slightly old fashioned theme, they’ve gone for slight old fashioned mechanics.
Wolf Bane is a 5×3 reel slot machine with 10 fixed bet lines with a wild, a click me feature, and a scatter that triggers 10 free spins. The free spins liven up the game by providing you with multipliers, spreading wilds or expanded wilds.
And you know what? There are lots of wilds in the base game, the click me bonus comes often enough to fill up your blood bank, and the free spins are fun to catch.
So why is this Wolf Bane slot review 2 stars only? After all, can’t we just enjoy a low variance game with lots of little wins? They don’t all have to be as risky as the Halloween Jack slot surely?
No, that’s true. But what you can’t deny is the numbers.
This has a high RTP of 96.74% but very low max win; the most you can win is just over 100 times your bet. Even Starburst has a max win of 500 times your bet.
Then there’s the betting range which goes from a low 0.10 a spin to… a still very low 10 a spin. That’s not a whole load, considering the top win is low enough that you could risk being a little braver.
In short, whilst you won’t have a bad time playing on this Wolf’s Bane slot game, you probably won’t win anything either. At some point, you have to ask yourself why you play if the chances of walking out alive are slim to none with little to no rewards for your efforts.

Wild:The man half turning into a werewolf is the regular wild symbol. He can replace any other symbol on the reels to create a win.
Pick and Click Feature: Three huntsmen Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels will start a simple click me bonus. You'll pick from one of the three symbols to get a cash prize ranging from 5x to 50x your bet.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 Blood Moon Scatter symbols trigger 10 free spins bonus. Here you spin to randomly be awarded one overlay wild on each spin. What each wild does depends on your luck. You could get:
We've tested them all and had good results with the expanding wild and the spreading wild.
We debated giving The Wolf's Bane slot review 3 stars because it really is quite playable. As a low variance slot, it does what it promises:
You get lots of wild symbols, the free spins come often and usually pay at least 15x your bet, and the click me game does much of the same.
It's got a great creepy Halloween theme, so why wouldn't we rank it higher? Well, with a limited betting range and only 100x your bet max wins, ultimately, we think the wolves will end up eating up your budget rather than share in the feast.
If you are after low variance terror, maybe the Mr Hallow-Win slot or Lucky Halloween slot may have more to offer in the long run.
