The game takes place in the forest during winter. There is a landscape of trees and land covered in snow as a background. The white is illuminated with orange and fiery, which is an interesting decision. The grid is on the right of the screen and is not very big. It has brown semi-transparent reels. On them can land card royals with a peculiar style and decorations and 5 wild animals. These are rabbits, eagles, brown bears, mooses and wolves.
The scatter is the full moon that appears bluish. The soundtrack is very subtle and atmospheric with the sounds of bells and animals. You will hear wolves howling. The free spins take place on blue background with snow. The soundtrack then is more dynamic and also very pleasant. The images are nice although not something exceptional.

Wolf Howl Features / Bonuses
You can trigger the Scatter Adder feature in the base game and this happens by chance. Then, between 2 and 4 scatters will be added to the reels on any position. This ensures great odds for triggering the free spins. You cannot activate this feature during the Buy Free Spins mode.
Another of the extra features in Wolf Howl is the Multiplier Wild. It can award 1x, 2x and 3x boost of all wins that this symbol takes part in. In the base game, 2x and 3x multiplier wilds can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. During free spins, you can win from 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x and 5x multiplier wilds. When you get more than one multiplier wild contributing to the same win, they multiply their value. For example, two multiplier wilds with values x5 and x4 taking part in the same win increase it by 20 times (5×4).
Landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters anywhere on the reels gives you 8, 15 or 30 Free Spins respectively. You can retrigger more rounds during the feature. Landing 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 scatters during a free spin adds 2, 5, 8, 15 and 30 extra rounds respectively.
During the free spins, there is a special Wild Call feature. Before every free spin, each scatter that you have on the reels triggers the Wild Call. All h scatters and symbols adjacent to the scatter convert to 1x Multiplier Wild symbols. If you already have a Multiplier Wild next to a scatter, it will upgrade to the next higher in value Multiplier Wild.
You can upgrade a symbol more than once if it is located next to more than 1 scatter. The upgraded Multiplier Wilds on the reel strip remain such until the end of the free spins. They become sticky symbols. Once the Multiplier Wild gets an x5 value, it can’t upgrade any more. You will have your wins calculated before the Wild Call activates.
