Curse of the Werewolf Megaways Slot Game Background
Pragmatic Play - one of the world’s leading iGaming developers - has produced a wide and varied output of slots games that encompass many different themes and genres, from the bright and bubbly Big Bass Bonanza to the subtly spooky Madame Destiny Megaways. Curse of the Werewolf Megaways (which is Pragmatic’s fourth go around with Big Time Gaming’s proprietary game engine) sees the studio delving into similar territory to the latter by exploring the theme of a lycanthrope stalking a sleepy late medieval village under the baleful gaze of a bright, full moon. The trope of a person turning into a wolf also allows Pragmatic to work in some clever mechanics with transforming symbols and other bonus features within the game.
Curse of the Werewolf Megaways Game Design
Curse of the Werewolf is a 6-reel, 6-row online casino game and has several elements that distinguish it from most other Megaways slots. For one, the title has a fixed 6x6 game grid. Second, the game doesn’t have an extra horizontal reel that sits above or below reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 of the main game grid. Third, the slot offers a below-average (for a Megaways slot) of 46,656 paylines, although the potential maximum payout of 40,976x the stake goes some way into making up for this.
The slot takes place in a late medieval village, complete with cobblestones and old-fashioned lamps. During the day (in the base game), a misty fog rolls through the one visible street while clouds scud across the sky. At night (during the Free Spins bonus round), the wind and rain howl, thunder roars, lightning crackles, and the werewolf is on the prowl. The game grid is set between two lamp posts, while the reels contain symbols that take the shape of playing cards, villagers, and the big, bad wolf itself. During the day (again in the base game), the game logo sits squarely on the top left of the screen, and the Megaways counter is directly to the right of this. At night (again during the Free Spins bonus round), the logo sits squarely in the top center of the grid and is flanked by the Free Spins and Megaways counters.
As is the case in a lot of Megaways slots, the music in Curse of the Werewolf Megaways is a particular highlight. First, a gothic tune that plays between spins that sounds like it might have been composed by the Phantom of the Opera on his harpsichord. Spin the reels, and the music takes a backseat, although it comes back with a vengeance once the reels stop spinning: the music builds up to a crescendo and even takes on horror undertones accompanied by the wolf’s terrifying howl.

Curse of the Werewolf Megaways is available to play on desktops, tablets, and mobile platforms like Android and Apple. The only requirement is a stable internet connection or mobile data. Players can also download the Lottomart app for the best experience possible.
Curse of the Werewolf Megaways Slot Symbols
The lowest-paying symbols on the paytable are inevitably the royal playing cards. Each number/letter has a distinct value for 6-of-a-kind on the reels. The 10, J, and Q cards have a payout of 1x the stake, while the K and A symbols have a higher value of 2x the stake.
Villagers next, and first up we have the cap-wearing man with 3x the stake for 6-of-a-kind. The mustachioed man has a payout of 4x the stake; the woman has a payout of 5x the stake. Meanwhile, the suspicious-looking man has a higher payout of 10x the stake for 6-of-a-kind. The highest-paying symbol is the wolf in front of the red background, with a payout of 20x the stake.
No self-respecting slot would be without its bonus symbols, and Curse of the Werewolf Megaways is no exception. The slot’s Wild symbol is a poster with the word WILD written in blood with a claw mark underneath. It appears only on reels 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, and substitutes for all other symbols apart from the Mystery, Bonus Scatter, and Attacking Werewolf ones.
The Mystery symbol is represented by a side profile of the werewolf’s face in front of the full moon. Upon landing on the reels, it randomly transforms into one of the paying symbols, after which winning combinations get awarded based on the new symbol.
The Bonus symbol - represented by a howling werewolf with the full moon behind it - is the key to triggering the Free Spins feature. We then come to the final symbol, the Attacking Werewolf. It looks very similar to the high-paying symbol but has an orange instead of a red background. The symbol only appears in the Free Spins feature and substitutes for the high-paying wolf symbol.
Curse of the Werewolf Megaways Bonus Features
You’ll be howling at the moon when you see just how many bonuses and features Pragmatic Play has packed into Curse of the Werewolf Megaways!
- Super Spin = a spin containing full stacks of high-value symbols that can randomly trigger during the base game.
- Guaranteed Win = a spin that can also randomly trigger that guarantees a big win in multiple ways.
Free Spins Feature
The Free Spins feature is the main bonus round in Curse of the Werewolf Megaways and has a few moving parts.
At least 3 Bonus symbols are required to trigger the feature. The number of initial free spins depends on the number of Bonus symbols that triggered it.
- 3 Bonus symbols = 8 Free Spins.
- 4 Bonus symbols = 10 Free Spins.
- 5 Bonus symbols = 12 Free Spins.
- 6 Bonus symbols = 15 Free Spins.
The Free Spins bonus round also has a progressive feature involving the Attacking Werewolf symbol. It can come bounding onto the reels, removing 1 - 5 lives from one of the villagers. The high-paying wolf symbol replaces any villager that loses all 5 lives. One extra free spin then gets awarded.
Landing 2 or more Bonus symbols during the bonus round also nets players more additional spins.
- 2 Bonus symbols = 2 Free Spins.
- 3 Bonus symbols = 3 Free Spins.
- 4 Bonus symbols = 4 Free Spins.
- 5 Bonus symbols = 5 Free Spins.
- 6 Bonus symbols = 10 Free Spins.
The incorporation of the Megaways engine means that each reel can reveal a certain number of symbols in view. Landing consecutive symbols on all reels after a spin could lead to a maximum of 46,656 ways to win.
