The tale of a man being transformed, usually against his will, into a wolf has been a persistent myth that’s still going strong in this modern day and age. There are therefore already plenty of werewolf slots out there, and Pragmatic has wisely decided to take a somewhat original approach with their Curse of the Werewolf Megaways. The title might sound serious enough, but the visuals and soundtrack soon reveals this as more of a horror/comedy, with neatly designed cartoon-style, caricature characters.
The 6×6 reel setup is set against a foggy, gothic village backdrop, and you will not find the usual Avalanche feature in this game. You will, however, benefit from a mystery symbols feature, as well as 2 randomly triggered spin modifiers in the base game. This is the 4th Megaways engine slot from Pragmatic, but they still haven’t warmed up enough to offer anything truly innovative to the genre.
It’s really mostly about the bonus round here, and the volatility is brutally high with wins above 40,000x your stake as an ever-present possibility. You will need a healthy dose of patience to appreciate this game. Although the base game features are somewhat helpful in breaking up the gameplay, they don’t usually pay all that much.
The bonus round can go either way, as is usually the case, and we got the short end of the stick in our 200 spins test session. It’s all about transforming the 4 village characters into the high paying werewolf symbol here, and the sooner you can do that, the bigger your chances of significant wins.
All in all, this is yet another solid Megaways title from Pragmatic, but we hope they will bring some real innovation to the table next time.
