Wolf Hiding Features

Wolf Hiding sees a return to a more traditional slot format for Evoplay since their ground-breaking Star Guardians production back in 2021. The standard mechanics see wins land along the 20 win lines with wilds to enhance the potential and scatters to hit a free spin round.

But they’ve got an ace in the hole—2 aces in fact! Mystery stacked symbols stick around for a few spins each time and hidden multipliers can pop up as a result. The game might seem like a regular slot but the features tell a different story.

Free Spins

To enter the coveted free spins round, 3 of the free spins symbols need to land anywhere on the reels. It’s possible to get more and each additional symbol adds to the multiplier during the feature round. As soon as the free spins start, reels 2 and 4 convert into a full stack of mystery symbols. And after each spin, the mystery symbols move down the reels until they leave the rows with regular symbols.

Each time they move down, another +1 multiplier is added to the total. When no mystery symbols remain, the game is over. There’s no saying just how many spins are achievable or how high that multiplier might grow.

Mystery Symbols

Mystery symbols start by showing the image of clouds covering the sky and they’ll open to reveal a hidden symbol. All mystery symbols that are on any of the reels at the same time will share the same hidden prize symbol.

This gives you the chance to land some incredible wins. It’s also possible that the full moon symbols might turn up to make things even more interesting.

Full Moon Feature

Full moon symbols offer an amazing prize-winning opportunity. Sometimes the mystery symbols reveal a full moon symbol. And as they land, they each display a different number on them.

The numbers are added up and then multiplied by your stake amount. The multiplier could be anything from 1 to 2,500x.

Wolf Hiding - Free Spins

Mystery Symbols

You’ll get a mystery symbol wherever a cloud symbol appears and these could help to connect a win when everything lines up.  They stick and drop 1 row at a time until they finally disappear.

Wolf Hiding Review

Wolf Hiding is one in a long line of wolf-themed slots that have proved incredibly popular over the last few years. However, the niche is in danger of being over-saturated. So has Evoplay managed to make its product stand out from the competition?

The emphasis is on the features and with high volatility, it's possible that some of them could pay out big time. Even during the base game, you are likely to see the mystery symbols feature landing fairly often and these have a habit of delivering some decent wins along the way.

This is quite surprising as games like this usually leave you spinning for a long time before the features kick in. And with an RTP of just under 96%, Evoplay has been more than generous with the winning potential up for grabs. Wolf hiding is available to play on mobile devices too thanks to the compatible iOS and Android versions.

Design

In an audiovisual sense, this title doesn't offer anything that we haven't seen before. Firstly, we have to say that it is beautifully crafted—as we would expect from top producers like Evoplay. It offers a luring and ominous mountain scene with a haunting soundtrack to match. But this is fairly standard for games in this genre. 

The premise is that the wolf and his close adversaries have come together to create some winning opportunities for slot fans—and this is the part that they do well. The characters don’t feature in any way other than having their own symbol values. It would have been nice to see them come alive during the feature and play a more integral role.

Gameplay

There are no fancy game mechanics or intricate payline formations to intrigue or confuse in this game. It's a standard 5-reel real affair with 20 paylines working just as you would expect them to. You have standard options to select your bet totals that will evenly distribute an equal wager across each of the lines. And for players outside the UK, there's an option to autospin up to 100 times if you'd prefer.

The free spins feature is a little different to usual in that, technically, there are an unlimited amount of spins available. And you might just get more spins than you are used to thanks to the way the hidden feature continues to move down the reels. It produces further spins and adds to the multiplier total as it makes its way down.

It has the potential to keep the dream alive for quite a while. We also love the addition of the full moon feature where you can land unexpected multipliers throughout the base game and the main feature round. This is certainly something that you won't find very often and can help to keep your balance intact while you're waiting for bigger wins to land.

Win Potential

With high volatility slots, you expect the opportunity to earn some extraordinary prizes. Your bankroll can take a battering while you play and it's the promise of those enormous wins that keeps your finger on the spin button.

The maximum payout is 30,000x, which equates to 900k in whatever currency unit you are playing in. It's possible to hit big wins when the full moon symbols land during the base game. But most of the damage will be done during the free spins round. Huge multipliers can build up and see those mega wins rack up before your eyes if everything goes to plan.

Our Verdict

As far as wolf-themed or other animal slots go, this is a great example of how to keep fans entertained throughout the journey. The graphics and soundtrack might not blow your mind but they certainly do a decent job of holding your attention all the same. The real crowning glory of this title is the array of features on offer and the big payouts that are possible.
