We stepped into the diner and spun the reels for quite a bit already. So, now we can tell you all about the bonus features and the winning chances in Rockabilly Wolves in our review below.
Rockabilly Wolves Theme and Background
The main theme is right in the name. It’s rockabilly and wolves. Rockabilly is a style of rock’n’roll that was established until the mid-fifties and was a mix between rhythm and blues and country music.
The term rockabilly wasn’t met with instant enthusiasm, as it was too close to hillbilly and such to a rural and backwards image. The centers of rockabilly were mainly in Memphis, Texas, Miami and Phoenix and if we’re being honest, it took a revival of the genre in the 80s to make it known to a wider audience.
The wolves on the other hand are one of the most mystical and mysterious animals, but in this slot, they’re mainly there for comic relieve. They are drawn in a Disney-esque comic style and could just as easily be human or feline or whatnot.
Still, the slot manages to create a fun and energetic picture with the mixture of the musical style and the wolves.
Rockabilly Wolves Gameplay
We already mentioned that the game is played on the fairly typical 5×3 reels with 20 paylines at your disposal. Rockabilly oozes from the reels with a fitting soundtrack and colorful symbols
The symbols are divided into three different categories. On the lower end of the value scale you have your typical card values J to A. Then there’s two high paying symbols in the wolf character and the stacked game logo symbol. And smack in the middle, you’ll find two stacked symbols with the cherries and the flaming billiard eight-balls.
There’re more symbols that will contribute to the bonus features of the slot and if you want to learn more about those features, just read about them in the boxes below.
There’re three different wild symbols at play in Rockabilly Wolves. The regular wild symbol appears only in the base game and is a three symbols high stack with the three wolf characters and the word wild above each of them. As per usual, the wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols, except the free spin symbol.
During free spins, you’ll also come across the sticky wild which is the main wolf character and the multiplier sticky wild in form of a golden vinyl record and the word wild.
Every time, two scatter symbols land on your reels without the third one landing, you’ll be awarded a re-spin. Since the free spin symbol can only land on reels 2, 3 and 4 only the reel without the free spin symbol will spin again, with the other four reels remaining locked into place.
The free spin round is triggered when you land three free spin symbols on the middle reels at the same time. You’ll then be awarded 9 free spins chock-full of features. First of all, the free spin symbol on reel 3 will convert into a sticky multiplier wild that remains there for the duration of free spins.
Every additional wild and multiplier wild appearing on any other reel will also be sticky and remain locked into place. The multiplier wilds landing will also each increase the multiplier by 1.
Should you manage to land one sticky wild or sticky multiplier wild on each reel, you’ll be awarded three additional free spins.
Rockabilly Wolves Payouts and Wagering Limits
You’ll be happy to hear that you can spin the reels in Rockabilly Wolves with as little as $0.10. But if you want to grab the maximum win of $120,000, you’ll have to raise the stakes and play with the maximum bet of $50.
The RTP of 96.03% is barely above average making this a fair slot, but by no means outstanding. Further difficulty for casual players might arise from the sky-high volatility. This means you won’t be seeing wins on every other spin and could go quite a couple of spins without seeing any wins or triggering any feature. On the other hand, the wins that do occur are way higher than usual.
We recommend this slot for all kinds of players with its fun theme and smashing soundtrack. but we will admit that it’ll probably be the more experienced players that will enjoy Rockabilly Wolves the most.
