We’re used to seeing various slot game titles featuring fearsome wolves, animals you wouldn’t want to meet while walking alone through a dark forest (just ask Little Red Riding Hood). But the Wolf Cub slot machine is anything but scary; it’s a cutesy, cartoon-style romp in the wilderness, with jaunty music.

You’ll enjoy spinning along with this NetEnt title, with fun animations and a snowy backdrop, and no complicated gameplay. That makes Wolf Cub the ideal game to feature as our Slot of the Week at TwinSpires Casino this week.

If you spend just $10 on Wolf Cub during the promotion, you will get a fantastic 20 free spins on the house.

How to the Play Wolf Cub Slot Machine

This five-reel, three-row slot is set in the Great American Outdoors. In a dark forest, with snow falling, you see the cartoon-style graphics, with symbols featuring some of the common wild animals you might expect in this part of the world.

The highest symbol is your host, the wolf cub, followed by the bear, the elk, the lynx, and a wise but rather grumpy-looking owl.

Meanwhile, the lowest paying symbols are the traditional card suits of hearts, spades, clubs, and diamonds. These are carved from wood that has presumably fallen as dead branches from the nearby trees. The same graphic twist is given to the autoplay, spin, and max bet buttons.

There are 20 paylines, and in the base game, you win in the usual fashion by landing three or more of the same symbols in a row. Look out for the Wilds, represented by the frozen wolf paw print, which substitutes for all others except the Scatter.

Get three or more Scatters – the full moon with Scatter written across – to land the lucrative free spins feature, which takes your potential winnings up a level. If you land two Scatters, the wolf cub that watches over proceedings to the left of the reels howls in excitement. If the third symbol appears, you’re in luck!

When the bonus activates, all reels with a Scatter on will turn into random numbers. All of these are then added together to give you your free spins total. Now, you can get the Blizzard Feature. During the free spins, a symbol can land fully stacked on reel 1 – if any more of the same symbol appear on other reels, the gap between them fills with identical ones. The idea is you can make multiple winning lines this way.

The game’s return to player percentage (RTP) is put at 96.34%, so about average, and the maximum win is 2000x your bet.
