Bark at the moon in Curse of the Werewolf Megaways

Pragmatic Play’s new werewolf adventure gives you transforming features

It’s always a thrill to see a new Megaways slot drop, and Curse of the Werewolf Megaways by Pragmatic Play is no exception. Throw in graphics as sharp as fangs, epic features and high volatility action, this gothic fairytale-style slot is sure to get you pumped with excitement. 

Sitting on the highest end of Pragmatic’s volatility scale and with an RTP of 96.5%, there definitely are some wins to be made here… all the way up to 40,976 times your stake (thanks to the famous Megaways mechanism giving you up to 46,656 ways to win). But we will warn you - the big wins are to be found in the free spins round, which doesn’t hit so frequently. So this 6x6 slot may appeal more to those who are happy to wait for the big wins to drop, and not so fussed about the little wins in between. 

 

The beast within

Werewolves have long been the subject of folklore, and they’ll always offer a classic beast to play the part of the villain in the story. We really enjoy how Pragmatic Play has gone with the transformative nature of a werewolf, and incorporated this into the mechanisms of the features. We’ll go through these further down, but the more you spin this slot, the more you’ll see how well the game matches the theme. 

The slot itself is set in a dark-looking European village, with terrified townspeople, ripped parchment, and of course the monster of a man turning into a wolf. The red wolf symbol is the highest-paying symbol, so this is one you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for. 

 

Features of fear 

As we mentioned already, it’s the free spins round where the real wins are to be found. This is triggered by landing three, four, five or six bonus symbols (the wolf howling at the moon), which will award eight, 10, 12 or 15 free spins respectively. Once the round kicks off, the real fun is about to begin.

Each time a gold wolf symbol lands during free spins, it will remove one to five lives from the high-paying human character symbols. If all five lives are removed from a character, they’ll be replaced by the premium red wolf symbol and another free spin will be awarded… so ultimately, replacing all characters with red wolves is how you’ll hit the highest of wins. If more bonus symbols land during the round - two, three, four, five or six - then more free spins can also be added: two, three, four, five or 10 respectively. 

The action doesn’t stop at the free spins round though, and there is still plenty to keep you engaged during the base game. For example, much like a man transforming into a wolf, if a sepia-style wolf lands during the game, he’ll transform into a paying symbol to increase your chances of winning.

There are also two random spin modifiers to watch out for: super spins and guaranteed win spins. Super spins will see a bunch of high-paying symbols dropped onto the reels; and guaranteed win spins will keep the reels spinning until you land a big win with multiple ways. 

If you’re feeling like you’ve been playing patiently without enough feature action, for 100x your stake you can also use the ‘buy bonus’ function, which will trigger the free spins round. This will ensure that at least three bonus symbols will land on the next spin, opening the gateway to try your luck at earning those whopper prizes.  

 

A game to get you barking

This may be a game for more experienced players with the time to wait for the big winning action, but Curse of the Megaways is definitely still a game worth checking out. A generous RTP, on-theme features, eye-catching graphics, and of course the addition of Megaways make this a winner in our books… and the best part is, you don’t even have to wait until the next full moon to play.
