Microgaming Announces the Release of a Brand New Slot Rockabilly Wolves
- April 24, 2019 By Oliver Young -
The industry’s leading software developer Microgaming launched Ancient Fortunes: Zeus at the beginning of April, and now, two weeks later, it has announced the release of a brand new slot, Rockabilly Wolves. It is a 5-reel, 20-payline cartoon-inspired slot that is packed with three different types of Wilds, Free Spins and Re-Spins and promises a real entertainment. The slot was actually designed by Just For The Win, the game studio that is behind other incredible slots released by Microgaming, such as Icy Gems. JFTW, as you may know by now, is a game studio that develops games exclusively for Microgaming.
Rock the Jukebox!
The reels in Rockabilly Wolves look in part like a classic slot machine, and in part like a real jukebox. There is a rock’n’roll soundtrack in the background which adds an interesting touch to the entire gaming atmosphere and spices things up. The background is deep purple, with lighter purple strips all over it.
On the reels, you will see the Wilds, a symbol which shows the game’s logo, a symbol with black 8 billiard balls and a symbol with cherries. These will be the highest-paying symbols, giving you up to 20x the stake payouts. For the lowest-paying symbols, you will see the playing-card royals.
You can will also see the three fun-looking Wolves, kind of looking like Goofy from the Cartoon Network cartoons. Each symbol that has at least one of these Wolves on it presents a type of Wild symbol. The one where you see the three Wolves vertically lined up is the regular Wild. The one that has the black-haired Wolf only is the Sticky Wild, while the one that has the three Wolves horizontally lined up against an orange backdrop is the Multiplier Sticky Wild.
Up the Beat and Let the Party Begin!
The regular Wild can only appear during the base game, while the two other Wilds only during the Free Spins, but they all substitute for all symbols on the reels in the formation of winning combos, except for the Free Spins symbol. The Free Spins symbol only appears on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reel during the base game.
Should you land 2 Free Spins symbols, the one reel that does not have the Free Spins symbol will make a Re-Spin, while the other reels will lock and you will wait for the third Free Spins symbol to appear. Should it appear, for 3 Scattered Free Spins symbols, you get 9 Free Spins. This is when the Free Spins symbol that appeared on the 3rd reel transforms into the Multiplier Sticky Wild and remains in position for the remainder of the Free Spins. During the Free Spins, you get a Multiplier that starts at 2x. Any Sticky Wild or Multiplier Sticky Wild that appears will also stick on the reels for the duration of the Free Spins, and the Multiplier Sticky Wild will increase the Multiplier by 1x. The most it can increase is up to 6x. If you manage to land at least one of the two types of Wild symbols during the Free Spins, you get rewarded with 3 additional Free Spins.
