Hunt Down Cash With the Pack
Wolfpack Pays is a 3-row, 5-reel online slot set against a wilderness scene complete with sunlight breaking through stormy clouds, a river running through forestland and mountains on the horizon. The music is barely perceptible during gameplay but grows louder with wins. Animations are limited to the running wolves in the upper right hand corner of the slot screen which represent ‘On A Roll’ wins. Wolfpack Pays is a win 243 ways online slot as seen in slots like Yggdrasil’s Monkey King or Elk Studios’ Taco Brothers. However, unlike those two popular online slots, Wolfpack Pays’ animations and graphics just can’t compare.
As is common among online slots by NextGen Gaming, Wolfpack Pays bet options are straightforward for ease of bet selection and tracking of cash during gameplay. Simply, select a Cash Bet ranging at the online casino Vera&John from 40p to £80 via the stack of gold coins lower left of the slot screen by adjusting Coin Value (0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.25, 0.50, 1.00, 2.00). Wolfpack Pays Total Bet and Balance are listed along the bottom of the screen beside the stack of coins. Select a Bet and press spin manually, or select an Autoplay option ranging from 5-100 spins. Click the fast forward button to speed up gameplay, and click stop to freeze reels quickly during Auto play or regular gameplay alike.
Wolfpack Pays has a lucky total of only 7 symbols. This slot’s only special symbol is a Wolf Wild which can replace any other slot symbol and plays a key role in the Bonus Features of the game. The remaining 6 symbols, listed in order of highest to lowest value, include a Howling Wolf, Eagle, Heart, Diamond, Clover and Spade.
Gameplay is left to right with 3+ Wolfpack Pays symbols starting from reel 1 required for a win. Get 5+ of anything except for the Clover or Spade for a profit along a single payline. The highest paying symbol of the slot is the Wolf Wild which pays (800, 25, 10) giving Wolfpack Pays the potential to award up to 20x the Total Bet per single payline.
The Wolfpack Pays paytable values are listed in coins and remain fixed despite changes in the Total Bet. Cash Wins are auto-calculated by multiplying the Coin Win by the Coin Value and then displayed by the game. The single line pays are very low, but with 243 ways to win on a spin with multiple line wins allowable, this slot has decent big win potential. For example, if a spin, with a Cash Bet of 40p (CV 0.01), yields both a three matching diamond win (2 coins) and a 3 matching Eagle win (5 coins), then the Total Win is 8 coins. 0.01 x 8 coins is an 8p Total Win.

Lead the Wolfpack
Wolfpack Pays symbol values are pitiably low. However, 243 ways to win on a spin, On A Roll and Wolfpack Free Games work together to bring up those winning numbers. While testing out the demo we never triggered the Wolfpack Feature. We won around 3 times every 10 spins or so. Of those wins, a third yielded 2 consecutive On A Roll wins. Though we only won up to 3 consecutive times on one spin and never triggered the Free Games round, our overall wins stayed true to the promised 97,75% RTP as 1 every 3 wins profited with 1 big win that paid 20x our Total Bet. Most of those wins had more than one payline matching symbol combination.
