Wolf Run is another one of IGT’s big pokie games. This non-progressive jackpot game features wolves and a slight Native American motif as its theme, although its biggest allure isn’t its theme at all, but the very generous stacked wild symbols. Wolf Run is simple enough, and looks rather dated (even with real animal icons on its reels), but as long as it’s still fun to play, that doesn’t matter one bit.
Wolf Run can see players win over 5 reels, upon which sit a total of 40 paylines. Line bets in this slot can be selected from 1 coin up to 50 coins in all. As you can imagine, that alters your total bet (with paylines non-adjustable) from a low of 40 coins per spin, up to a whopping 2,000 coins per spin. Wolf Run is a high variance, non-progressive video slot.

Wild icon: Keep an eye out for the howling wolf before the full moon icon. This is Wolf Run’s wild and it will appear stacked across all of the reels in the game. As a wild, it can replace itself for all other icons in the game, barring the bonus icon. It is also the best paying symbol in the slot.
Bonus icon: Wolf Run’s bonus icon is simple enough to spot. It has “bonus” written clean across it. Even people with bad eyesight won’t miss that. The bonus icon will trigger a free spins bonus if it appears on the central three reels at once. After begging three in total, you will also get your total bet multiplied by 2x its value and returned to you as a win.
Free spins: Wolf Run’s free spins bonus features the same old icons as the base game, although they will be worth a little bit more money in this bonus. The player will begin with just 5 free games in this bonus, although if they land 3 of the new bonus icons (they have changed colour, that is all), then they will pocket 5 additional free spins to play with. The free spins round doesn’t do anything particularly spectacular, and nothing you wouldn’t find in other slots, but it does tend to pay rather well on most occasions.
The top prize in Wolf Run is a non-progressive 1,000x your total bet jackpot. In order to bag this prize, players need to line up 5 wilds across any active payline. Given that wilds appear stacked on all reels, the chances are that you are going to win much more than that, since you’ll also have additional wilds which may play an interesting role in boosting your wins on the reels, provided your haven’t got the winning combination on the highest or lowest rows of symbols on the reels.
Wolf Run doesn’t have the most sensational free spins bonus, or even the most special features. The reason it is such a special slot is because it pays. Sure, its pay-out percentage is officially fixed at 9.250% and 94.98%, but wait until you get to the free spins bonus. In most cases, you’ll be laughing all the way to the bank.
