Curse of the Werewolf Megaways Review
Curse of the Werewolf is a spine-chillingly frightening horror-themed slot that's all about... You guessed it, Werewolfs! Featuring Big Time Gaming's famous Megaways Mechanic this Pragmatic Play slot sees players offered the opportunity to win 40,976x their initial stake thanks to the game's 46,656 ways to win.
This slot features multiple bonuses and mechanics such as mystery symbols, transforming symbols and stacked symbols. If that wasn't enough there's also a generous number of free spins up for grabs on top of that.
We honestly can't speak highly enough of the design team at Pragmatic Play, they could quite easily have thrown together a generic horror-themed slot game that's barely distinguishable from the last, however, this game has oodles of charm!
Once loaded into the main game, a church bell rings continuously in the background as dramatic and ominous organ music plays as well. Once you start spinning the reels the music becomes faster-paced and you'll often hear a werewolf howling.
The characters that appear on the game symbols are almost Disney-esque, each one of them has distinctive facial features that genuinely give you a good idea of their mindset and mannerisms. It's not often the characters that appear in an online slot game leave such a lasting impression.
Curse of the Werewolf Megaways plays like most standard Pragmatic Play slots. Players can change their bet value on the far right-hand side of the screen using by clicking the - and + on either side of the spin button. On the other side plays can view game information and the paytable, it's that simple! A box in the top right-hand corner of the game screen will indicate how many Megaways are in play during any given spin of the reels.
First things first, we should address the elephant in the room. We don't agree that a slot should give itself the Megaways title if it's not offering at least the original 117,659 ways to win. However, perhaps we've gotten greedy over time? Because 46,656 paylines isn't anything to be scoffed at. This slot has a fair RTP of 96.05% and offers players the opportunity to win 40,976x their initial stake, which is pretty generous!
Curse of the Werewolf Megaways is a lot of fun, there's more than enough going on during both the base and game and during bonus rounds to keep us thoroughly entertained. The bonus round proved fruitful and we really relished triggering it, as it was exciting to see whether any of the townsfolk would be turned into snarling monsters, leading to some monster payouts!
