Time to head North as this Wolf Cub slot by NetEnt promises you a blizzard of wins and 115 free spins.
As far as NetEntertainment mobile phone slots go… Wolf Cub is pretty enough.
The characters are sweet, the falling snow in the background gives you a slight chill to the air, and the wooden high card symbol keeps within the natural feel of these 5×3 reels.
Up until the day it was released, this Wolf Cub mobile slot felt like it suddenly came out of nowhere.
NetEnt had said it was coming, had made the YouTube video, even put it on the program. But it didn’t stand out.
It’s almost like you are taking a walk into the deep, dark, woods, and are hoping to catch some animal size wins, but you end up spying a squirrel or two instead.
Then, out of nowhere we triggered the free spins bonus round.
Now whenever a slot machine online says you can get ‘unlimited spins’ or ‘200 free spins’ we tend to take it with a pinch of salt.
Usually it’s possible in theory, but not so much in day to day reality – like in the Frozen Inferno slot.
Same can be said here: though you can get 115 Wolf Cub slot free spin bonus games, you’ll probably end up with around 17.
That said, the most we triggered was 32, and it was a blazing round, giving us over 125 times our bet in wins.
There is a lot of big win potential when you play with this puppy. Mostly it’s thanks to the unusual Blizzard feature which shows up during the free games.
A little like in the Copy Cats slot, when you get a full reel of the same symbols on reel 1, you’ll then get a whole load of that same symbol covering the rest of the reels.
The problem, as you can read, is you have to wait for the Wolf Cub bonus games to get to all the action.
But that’s ok.
Sometimes you fancy a stroll through some not particularly dangerous woods. There’s still hope you might catch that one spin that will have you howling at the moon.

Wilds: The icy wolf paw is the wild symbols and the highest paid symbol on the reels. It can also be used to replace any other symbol in a win, except for scatter.
Bonus Scatter and Free Spins: Get 3 scatters or more on screen and you'll activate the free spins.
The scatters used to trigger the free spins will expand to cover the reels, and each individual symbol will then give you anything from 1 to 3 free spins (usually).
As with 3 scatters you basically get 9 of those symbols, you generally end up with at least 15/17 free spins, sometimes more.
The most you can win is 115 free spins in this Wolf Cub video slot.
Free Spins and the Blizzard Feature: During the free spins, if one symbol lands fully stacked on reel one, these will then spread horizontally to meet any similar symbols on the other reels.
So say you get a stack of bears on reel 1. And you have a random bear symbol on reel 4 and 5.
You will then get bear symbols covering the reels from reel 1 to reel 4 and 5 to meet those bears.
A little like the wilds in the IGT Miss White slot.
This Wolf Cub slot on mobile is not one of NetEnt's best casino games, but it's still got a few surprises up it's sleeve to keep things interesting.
Mostly this is done by the Blizzard feature in the free spins, where the animals come together to duplicate across the screen.
That said, ultimately, Wolf Cub is a simple 20 payline 5x3 reel slot that doesn't try and break the mould. Just keep you on your toes a little.
If you like the look of this, but fancy something a little more unusual, then Seasons by Yggdrasil Gaming is also worth checking out.
