NetEnt Joins Halloween Mania With The Wolf’s Bane

Halloween is just around the corner, and we are all doing our best to decorate our homes and make all our neighbors afraid to even approach our houses. Naturally, some people enjoy the entire Halloween spirit with all the tricking and treating. Speaking of treats, one of the leading online casino operators has a very special Halloween treat for all slot lovers out there, and it is called The Wolf’s Bane.

If you know anything about NetEnt, you know they love releasing games for special holidays, including Halloween. This is not a typical game you would usually get, as it doesn’t feature jack-o-lanterns, skeletons, or zombies. Instead, the NetEnt development team wanted to take a somewhat different approach, focusing on one of the most terrifying mythical creatures out there — werewolves.

What the company has been known for is that they always pay a lot of attention to the setting of most of their themed slots, and The Wolf’s Bane is no exception. The game is set in an 18th-century village that is terrorized by a creature that kills people when the moon is full. Many claim it’s a wolf that walks like a man and is bigger than a bear. They’re not wrong!

Enter the spooky village and spin the reels in order to find out more about this creature of the night and the brave peasants who took arms to put an end to the abomination.

The illuminating blood-red moon, the haunted village, the ghastly clairvoyants — all is there for a good horror story, and your job is to spin the reels and explore the rich and vivid world created by NetEnt’s team of outstanding developers and designers.

The game features a couple of bonus symbols that can improve your experience. The werewolf is the wild, and it will substitute all the other symbols on the reels except for the scatter and the bonus symbol.

The scatter is represented by a full moon, and if you land three of them, you will trigger a total of 10 free spins. Four scatters will award 20 free spins, and five (maximum) scatters will give the luckiest players an opportunity to spin the reels 30 times for free.

During the free spins, the wild appears in four forms: a regular wild, an expanding wild, an x2 multiplier wild, and a spreading wild. All of these symbols can help you improve your free spins bonus and help you win hefty rewards if you’re lucky.

Pick And Click

Another interesting feature is the so-called Pick and Click Feature, which is activated once you manage to land three or more bonus symbols on the reels. The bonus symbols will appear only on three out of five reels — reels 1, 3, and 5.

During this game, one prize only is awarded, and the coin win can vary anywhere from 5x to 50x the amount of your bet. The bonus symbol is represented by a brave villager with a crossbow.

Other symbols on the reels are basically all the other villagers that are typical characters of an 18th-century horror story. They are all high-paying symbols in contrast to the low-paying ones, which are J, Q, K, and A. The game features a standard 5×3 grid and a total of 10 paylines.

Overall, we could say that we have a winner among the slots that were published for Halloween 2019. Therefore, all you have to do is find an online casino supporting NetEnt and spin away! Just make sure there are no werewolves lurking around the corner of your neighborhood!
