Curse of the Werewolf Megaways is a video slot with six reels, up to six rows and 64 to 46,656 ways to win. Pays are awarded for two to six matching symbols on adjacent reels from left to right only. Dare to face the blood-thirsty creature on desktop or mobile from 0.10 to 100 credits per spin. The game has maximum volatility (5/5) with an RTP of 96.50%. Beware, lower RTP settings might be used by some operators, always check the help file to find out which version you will be playing.
The scenery in the base game gives little away that you are about to face fierce werewolves on the reels. A quiet, medieval village is in the background of the Megaways game window which is held in a steel frame reminiscent of a gate to a palatial property. Four unsuspecting villagers roam the reels not knowing that the werewolf is about to chase them down on a full moon night the soon the game enters the free spins round. A harrowing soundtrack provides the fitting audio for this haunted slot.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from 10 to A, awarding 0.5x to 1x your stake for a single six of a kind. They are followed by four villagers on green, blue, purple and brown tiles as well as the werewolf on a red icon. Hit six across the reels to win 1.5x to 10x your bet. A medieval scroll marked with the word itself is the wild symbol, appearing on reels two to six only and substituting for all regular pay symbols. A werewolf howling to the moon and marked with ‘Bonus’ acts as the scatter while a snarling werewolf is the mystery symbol.
Curse of the Werewolf Megaways Slot Features
Pragmatic Play is busy making use of their Megaways licence and presents their fourth creation in as many months since their debut in May 2020. On Curse of the Werewolf Megaways, they went for a toned-down version of the game engine with up to 46,656 ways and omitting in the process the usual cascading symbol and reactive wins mechanic. In turn, they cranked the volatility up to the maximum and gave it some modifiers for the base game and a free spins round with symbol upgrades that are each capable of delivering monster wins on a single spin.
Starting off the harrowing reel brawl is the Mystery Symbol feature. Snarling werewolves can land on any spin in the base game with all in view transforming into a common pay symbol except scatters and wilds. And there is more. Two Spin Modifiers can trigger randomly at the start of a spin in the main game. The Super Spin is a round with stacked premiums while the Guaranteed Win Spin will deliver a big multiway win.
The werewolf is also at the centre of the action in the bonus feature. Hitting three, four, five or six scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin will trigger 8, 10, 12 and 15 Free Spins respectively. Two to six scatters landing during the feature will retrigger +2 to +10 free spins, no limits.
A display with the four villagers will appear to the left of the game window with the lowest premium at the bottom (desktop), each with a health meter and five lives. Golden werewolf symbols are added to the reels and any landing on a free spin will attack the active villager, removing 1 to 5 lives per strike. Once a character has lost all lives, it is upgraded to standard werewolf symbols with the red background for the remainder of the free spins. Plus, for every upgrade, the game will award +1 free spin. Upgrading all character symbols will leave only werewolf, wild and scatter symbols on the reels, providing extra potential to score megawins of up to 40,976 times your bet.
Lastly, the game comes with a Buy Free Spins option, although only in jurisdictions where these have not been restricted yet. It will allow you to purchase direct access to the free spins feature by staking 100x your base bet in one amount. Simply hit the button and confirm to see the game launching a spin that will have a minimum of three scatters land on the reels.
Curse of the Werewolf Megaways reminded me a little of Primal Megaways, an immensely popular slot by Blueprint Gaming. That applies to the insane volatility and win potential as well as the mystery symbols with the latter capable of delivering monster wins in the base game. The bonus feature differs though, making the Pragmatic Play creation stay on its own ground. Although, the symbol upgrade on Megaways games was first seen on Machina from Kalamba Games. Overall, a highly suspenseful slot which presents a tough challenge, even to the most hardcore slotting folks but also comes with a win potential to match.
