- A well-designed slot with plenty of features
- Earn extra wilds or better symbols in the base game
- Build up multipliers in the free spins bonus
Cossacks: The Wild Hunt is a new game to show off Foxiums mechanic Wonderways. It actually works fairly differently to other alternatives, using blocker symbols as we’ll soon see. There’s a nice theme here, rather dark and set in a forest. The reel layout is most interesting and important for the way Wonderways works. You just need to get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 9, 10 or Jack
- Queen, King or Ace
- Boar of Wold
- Bear or Yana
There is a wild symbol also which substitutes for all of the above symbols in a winning combination.

Cossacks: The Wild Hunt Slot Bonuses and Features
Blocker Symbol. These are blank symbols that do nothing and do not form part of a win.
Wonderways. Wonderways is a trademarked mechanic, a bit like Megaways. You’ll see that the screen has an inner and outer area. On each spin, a number of blocker symbols will land on the outer area, and that will determine how many ways to win you have on that spin, with a maximum of 46,656. Wins are still paid from left to right as you’d expect, and each win triggers a cascade, where new symbols will fall in from above within the same spin to hopefully generate another win. This also increases your multiplier by 1x, resetting after the cascades end.
To Arms. This is a random feature where arrows hit certain symbols, changing them to create a win.
Releases the Wilds. Here, blades can hit symbols, turning them into wilds to create wins.
Free Spins Bonus. For this you need to land 4 scatter symbols, spelling the word hunt. This will give you 8 free spins, and any additional scatters will give you 2 more free spins each. Here, you start with a 1x multiplier and, as in the base game, each win will increase this by 1x but it will not reset after each spin. The multiplier is unlimited as you might expect. You can also land extra free spins symbols to get more free spins.
Bonus Buy. Outside of the U.K., you can buy the free spins bonus and choose a starting multiplier up to 20x.
Foxify. This mode lets you remove all blocker symbols and gives you a better chance of trigger the free spins bonus.
Cossacks: The Wild Hunt slot from Foxium is a very well-engineered game with lots of features with a good use of their Wonderways mechanic, aimed of course at competing with some of the alternatives out there like Megaways. I have to say it works quite well, offering lots of ways to win and this works well combined with a good win potential of 10,000x your stake. The free spins bonus is obviously your main goal, allowing you to build up your multipliers to a much more impressive amount. It’s a shame that here in the U.K. you can’t buy the bonus with a higher starting multiplier. All in all, an impressive slot well worth your time.
