Wolf Saga: Hold and Win Game Review
Bodog is chest-out proud to present to you one of the finest new slots to hit the reels in recent times. The good folk at Boongo Games have really outdone themselves with this one. Wolf Saga: Hold and Win at Bodog goes far beyond what any run-of-the-mill slot might offer. The features alone are a step above, brimming with winning potential amidst a richly imaginative and atmospheric moon-drenched forest.
Snap up those free spins dispersed between bonus rounds (with three different jackpots on offer!), and, in keeping with the game’s opulence, go bold in the booster round. You’re about to experience an ancient, magical tale of a majestic wolf and his human, howling at the silvery moon in unison to absorb its otherworldly blessings.
An epic saga, old as the mountains, emerges from the fur of a howling wolf, seen bathed in beams under the light of a full moon. The story comes to life as you join an archer clad in her own white fur cloak, and embark on a hunt for the elusive beast and timeless magic of the night.
When the orchestral music fades into black, you hear nothing but the eerie whispers of an enchanted forest alive with, and a wolf leaping through bonus rounds and special features beneath the quiet sway of the trees.
How to Play
To begin Wolf Saga: Hold and Win, here’s what you’ll want to know:
- 5 reels
- 3 rows
- 25 paylines
- $0.25 – $60 betting range
- RTP: 96.1%
- Three jackpots
- Boost feature
- Hold and Win bonus game
- Free spins
There are plenty of high-paying symbols lurking throughout the forest, and perhaps even some extra special symbols that unlock doors to yet another layer of mystical opportunities.
Symbols from highest to lowest:
- Playing cards
Scatter Symbol: The red-haired female Archer dressed in white fur
Bonus Symbol: The milky white moon is your bonus symbol and it’s by far the most important symbol in the game. The value on the moon’s surface can range from 1x-10x, 15x, 20x, 30x or 100x your bet.
You won’t be lingering in the shadows for long, since three unforgettable bonus rounds lie just under a sliver of moonlight, right up ahead.
Start by landing at least three archer scatters to get five free spins. Then watch in amazement as reels 2, 3, and 4 rotate together as one Mega Symbol, awarding three more free spins as it ultimately falls.
During the main game and free spins, the Boost symbol can only appear on reel 3, but during the Bonus game it can award you higher wins from any reel.
When a Boost symbol tumbles across the reels along with at least one bonus symbol, you’ll be granted entry to the Boost Feature. The Boost does exactly what it promises while you’re there. All of your Bonus symbols are added up and the total value is included in your wins for that round.
Hold and Win Bonus Game
To enter the Hold and Win bonus game that truly makes this slot famous among its peers, you’ll need to land six or more moon symbols in the base game. Watch as the main board falls away to reveal our wolf howling with a mournful beauty, the glow of the full moon casting him in a haunting silhouette.
A new 5×3 board will fall into place displaying multiple square slots. To kick things off, you’ll start with three free spins. Moon symbols with their designated multipliers will fall into view, some latching onto the squares, and the more the better; more re-spins are awarded when six or more bonus symbols fall into place, and there they’ll stay for the rest of the round. Then, each time either a bonus symbol or a Boost symbol falls out, you get three more re-spins.
Just like the Boost feature, your winnings are calculated by summing up the value of each symbol and adding it to your balance when the round is over.
Mini, Major, and Grand Jackpots
The Saga comes to an end – or does it? – in the Hold and Win bonus game when one of the three epic jackpots falls into your lap, or you simply run out of re-spins:
- Mini Jackpot: 30x your bet
- Major Jackpot: 100x your bet
- Grand Jackpot: 1000x your bet
To close out the book on this wolfishly wild saga with a reverberating echo, you want to fill up each of the 15 spaces on the grid with bonus symbols which awards you the final Grand Jackpot of 1000x your stake.
If you join the Saga on a desktop, the controls are laid out on a typical horizontal board. If you’re playing on mobile, flip your phone to landscape mode and access the controls by tapping on the hamburger icon.
