Big Bad Wolf Slot Review
Once upon a time Quickspin decided to use the famous story of the Three Little Pigs as a theme for their popular Big Bad Wolf video slot. The 2013 release appears more like an animated video for kids, thanks to colourful graphics and a fitting soundtrack, but believe us when we tell you that the Quickspin title is not intended for children. The five-reel slot with 25 fixed paylines uses swooping reels, which is very similar to cascading reels, and offers the Pigs Turn Wild feature, as well as the Free Spins feature with up to 20 freebies and the Blowing Down the House feature.
The biggest question here is who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? The howling creature may seem scary, but he is actually very useful in the 2013 release, since he is the Scatter that triggers the Free Spins feature. The Beehive is used as a Wild that substitutes for all regular symbols. All three little Pigs are there, representing high-value symbols and they can also become Wilds, thanks to the Pigs Turn Wild feature. Another high-paying symbol is the stuffed Piggy. Regular playing cards are used for low-paying icons. There is also the Moon symbol that only appears during the Free Spins feature and is crucial for the Blowing Down the House feature.
Base game takes place in the house of straw, where the reels are set. The 2013 release features five reels, three rows and offers 25 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, beginning from the far left reel. Three of a kind is the minimum for landing payouts. The Quickspin title uses swooping reels, meaning that all winning symbols are blown off the reels and new symbols are added to possibly form new winning combinations. This is closely connected with the Pigs Turn Wild feature, but more about that later. Set the bet somewhere between £0.25 and £250 and you are ready to go.
Apart from the regular Beehive Wild, punters will benefit from three additional Wilds, thanks to the Pigs Turn Wild feature. Land two successive wins and the first Pig will turn into Wild. After the fourth successive win, the second Pig turns Wild and after the sixth successive win, the third Pig turns Wild.
Once three or more Wolf Scatters appear on the reels, the Free Spins feature is triggered. The Wolf will appear and blow the straw house in and the reels will be moved to the house of sticks. Spinners get ten freebies to begin with, but the feature can be retriggered and ten additional free spins can be acquired. The Blowing Down the House feature starts when you land three Moon symbols during the Free Spins feature. This will make the Wolf blow the stick house in and everybody will move to the brick house, awarding spinners with two extra freebies. Get three more Moon symbols and you will get two more free spins and a 2x multiplier on all wins.
If we did our math right, gamers may win up to 25,000 coins per single spin. The Beehive Wild is the most generous symbol in the 2013 release, offering 1,000 coins for five of a kind. The Free Spins feature will offer the most rewarding payouts, especially if you reach the brick house and get a 2x multiplier on all wins. Big Bad Wolf’s RTP is 97.29%.
