About Cossacks: The Wild Hunt
Join the hunt in a game like no other - Microgaming’s Cossacks: The Wild Hunt slot. While there are often a number of slots based around the Vikings, Romans, Ancient Egyptians and other past civilisations, in this slot the cast are Cossacks!
Originally from the steppes of Eastern Europe, millions of people across the world now identify as Cossacks, but they were originally a semi-military people - and adept at hunting. Enter this slot, which is one of just a few to utilise the Wonderways mechanic, with the play board divided into an outer zone and an inner zone.
The outer zone consists of reels one and six, and the top row of the grid, while everything else is in the inner zone - in every spin, a number of blocker symbols will appear on the outer grid, and they’ll determine the number of Wonderways there are on each round. Winning is simple: just match symbols from left to right on adjacent reels. After each win there’s a cascade, with the multiplier duly increasing, and of course you need to watch out for wild symbols too.
However, you can also win free spins, and you might come across a couple of surprises on the play board...
How to play Cossacks: The Wild Hunt
- Choose your wager and then click Spin.
- Watch the symbols land along the play board.
- Land matching symbols along adjacent reels to win some real money.
- On a winning spin, wait for the winning symbols to be removed and new symbols to cascade down, increasing the multiplier and giving you more chances to win.
- On any spin, wait to see if arrows fly at the board - any symbols hit will change, creating a six of a kind win. Alternatively, blades may fly into the board on any spin, with any symbols hit turning into wilds.
- Watch out for wild symbols, which substitute for all symbols apart from scatter symbols in winning combinations.
