Special Features

The game features 27 paylines with wins being formed for landing 3 or more identical symbols from the leftmost reel to the rightmost reel. Spinsane features quite a small range of symbols comprised of Blanks, Wolf Paw Prints, Wolf Teeth, as well as an image of a Wolf. These symbols can also appear with an orange claw mark in front of them on the reels. These special symbols are referred to as Super Symbols in the game and offer even bigger payouts. For instance, land 5 Wolf symbols to get 50X your stake but if you are lucky enough to land 5 Super Wolf symbols then you will receive a fantastic cash prize worth 500X your wager!

The Wild symbol in the slot is represented by the letter ‘W’. Typically, it replaces all other symbols apart from the Scatter symbol to help form winning combinations and only appears on reels 2 to 5 in the main game.

The standout feature of the game is the Free Spins bonus round. To trigger it, you will need to land at least 5 or more Scatter symbols on the reels. The Scatter symbol is denoted by an image of a wolf howling at the moon. Every Scatter symbol awards 2 Free Spins so you are guaranteed to start with at least 10 Free Spins although it is possible to get up to 30 Free Spins if you manage to fill all of the reels with Scatter symbols.

During Free Spins, every time a Scatter symbol appears on the reels then you will be awarded 1 extra Free Spin. There is no limit as to how many Free Spins you can be awarded which means in theory you can benefit from unlimited Free Spins. In addition to this, one of the reels from 2 to 5 will also transform into an Overlay Wild Reel for each Free Spin to further boost your chances of landing a big cash payout.

Theme, Graphics and Sound

In terms of visuals, the graphics are on point as it features stylish curved reels displayed in a slick purple colour. It really does feel like playing a classic physical slot machine albeit with wolves involved! Symbols in the game are nicely rendered onscreen and consist of a Wolf Paw Print, a Wolf Tooth, along with an image of a Wolf with bright blue eyes. The animations are decent as symbols blink and flash when part of a winning combination. It is particularly noteworthy when you have a bunch of Scatter symbols as the reels light up and slow down to further increase the tension as you wait anxiously to see if you have enough to trigger the special Free Spins feature. It further adds to the gameplay.

A soft techno-style soundtrack plays in the background along with some classic slot machine sound effects. It works quite well with the Classic theme of the game.

Our Verdict on Spinsane

Acclaimed software studio NetEnt produced this mildly entertaining slot and to be fair it is a refreshing and unique take on classic slot machines of the past. It's extremely easy to play, features slick graphics, and most importantly of all, fun gameplay. The Super Symbols in the game can be quite lucrative especially if you fill all of the reels with the Super Wolf Symbol. Manage to do this and you will bag yourself the top prize worth a staggering 5,000X your bet! The Free Spins feature which can take quite a few spins to trigger is also worth sticking around for as you can benefit from not only unlimited Free Spins but also an Overlay Wild Reel on each Free Spin. For variance, it is between Medium and High so don’t expect to win big right away here but when you do the payouts can be quite large. If you are looking for more fun on the reels also featuring Wolves then check out Wolf Gold and Wolfpack Pays.

Have a howling good time on the reels when you play Spinsane!
