Wolfpack Pays is the latest video pokie game coming from NextGen Gaming. It is a great addition to their pokies offer because is features the 243 ways to win design. The minimum bet to play it is set at $0.40 while the maximum is a high $80 per spin.
The pay table is weak, so base play winnings are small but there is a big payout potential in the bonus round. The free spins feature is activated after four consecutive wins and there is no fixed number of free spins in the bonus round.
Instead you are given 3 tokens and each time you get a non winning spin one is deducted. The bonus ends when there are no more tokens available and you go back to base play. The animations and visual appearance of the game are on a high level making it an attractive video pokie. All you need to do is spin the reels and hope for a big win to happen.
What We love
We have to say that we love the overall game design. Video pokie games that have 243 ways to win are always attractive for gamblers because of the big payouts they can produce.
Also NextGen paid a great deal of attention to the symbols and the visual effects in the game. Wolfpack Pays looks just as great as any 243 ways to win pokie from the top leading providers in the world.
What we Do not Like
The only detail we don’t like in this game is the weak pay table. The highest paying symbol is the wild which awards 800 coins for 5 of them on the reels and the next highest paying symbol awards only 400 coins which is equal to 10 x total bet. This is why base play wins are small and there are rarely medium or big wins to boost your balance.
Video pokie games that have 243 ways to win can be very profitable awarding big wins in the bonus round. Unfortunately our real play session on Wolfpack Pays was very disappointing. We played on minimum bet and our balance was constantly dropping. Since this is a high variance game this could be expected but we never did get a big win during base play or in the bonus round. The pay table is just too weak.
All our wins during base play were small and the bonus round was very hard to trigger. In about 500 spins we managed to trigger it only 3-4 times and never once did we get a win of over 50 x bet. The 3 tokens disappear very fast because every second or third spin is non winning. We never got 4-5 winning spins in a row and only a few 5 of a kind combinations.
The wilds can come across all reels in the bonus round and can cover the entire reel but that also did not happen. Our balance dropped to 0 and that is one of the main reasons why we can’t recommend this game. There are much better 243 ways to win pokies out there and far better games from NextGen Gaming than Wolfpack Pays.
