The high cards of a standard playing deck are also used. The Dark Red logo is the wild symbol and replaces all symbols except for the scatter. The scatter symbol is the Full Moon. Get three bonus Treasure Chest symbols in the game and trigger the Wolf’s Wheel Bonus, where you will have the chance to spin the wheel for cash prizes, multipliers and the treasure chest.
In the Wandering Reels feature, there are groups of 3 reels that spin together. The Wandering Reels stop in 1 of 3 positions, first 3 reels, 3 middle reels or last 3 reels. These contain jumbo blocks for higher chances of winning. The Wolf’s Wheel Bonus feature is triggered when 3 full moon scatters appear on the reels. Here, you’re guaranteed to trigger another feature. You spin the wheel where you can win cash prizes of up to 20 times your stake. Landing on any high symbols during the wheel bonus activates the free spins round, where nine free spins are awarded.
If you land on the treasure chest, you will trigger the Forest of Fortunes Pick Bonus feature. Here you make picks to win more cash prizes. After each prize, the multiplier increases by 1. The feature will end once you find all 10 cash prizes or if you find a stopper. You can also uncover the protection of an axe to stop the feature from ending. This feature offers a 10x multiplier.
