Why is Wolf Run So Popular?

IGT's Wolf Run Slot Stacked Wilds

Stacked Wilds

IGT advertises ‘Stacked Wilds’ for their Wolf Run Slot and it is obviously the key to this slot game. The Wild Wolf with Moon symbol is stacked so you can get a slot screen full of wild symbols! 5 Wild Wolf symbols pay 1000 credits on each payline, so a screen full of stacked wilds on this slot machine would pay 40,000 credits on a 40 credit bet. What is actually really nice is that while the Wild symbols aren’t common, they certainly do appear during a 15-30 minute session playing Wolf Run. I can get low pays on this slot machine for a while, but sooner or later the Wilds will fall nicely into place and provide a great win. I love getting the Wolf howl with a bunch of Wilds on this slot machine’s screen, followed quickly by the familiar IGT fireworks win celebration.

The money in this slot game is obviously on the reels and you will eventually get the ‘Stacked Wilds’ hitting on multiple reels at the same time. The real luck is to
mix in some of the higher paying picture symbols in with the stacked wilds win. It’s not ideal to have a bunch of  9, 10, J, Q, K symbol pays however even those symbols can pay nice with a lot of Wild symbols stacked on this slot’s screen. Keep in mind that the Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except for the Bonus symbol which triggers the free slot spins bonus feature.

Wolf Run Bonus Feature

5 free slot spins are awarded when the Bonus symbol appears on Reels 2, 3, and 4. What can I say other than Wolf Run’s bonus feature is as plain as it can get. No extra wild symbols, no win multipliers or anything special at all in this slot’s bonus feature. This is the only real weak spot of this slot game, as this doesn’t offer much to the player other than 5 free basic spins of the slot machine’s reels. BUT free is free so I’ll take these 5 free slot spins!

Wolf Run Highlights and Lowlights

Highlights: Great graphics and STACKED WILDS are the hallmark of the Wolf Run slot title from IGT! Wild symbol frequency is very achievable. IGT has incorporated some volatility in the Wolf Run slot machine so big wins can be had on this slot game.

Lowlights: It would be nice if the bonus feature had a bit more in it than just 5 free slot spins, but the base game play makes up for the lacking bonus feature on this slot.

Wolf Run Slot Game Variations

  • Australian casinos and clubs have a slightly different version of the Wolf Run slot machine. The slot is available in a 40 or 50 line format and the slot reel layouts are a bit different.
  • Wolf Run Multiplay slot machine, where you can play 4 Wolf Run slot games at once, is also available. No real difference to the multiplay slot version other than playing four Wolf Run slot games at the same time.

    I finally find a game I really. enjoy playing and it won’t work. I do not want to play for money I only want to play for enjoyment I’m very disappointed.

      Being located within the United States, it is illegal to gamble online. IGT does not make there games available to users in the United States. Sorry for your disappointment.
