HOW TO PLAY BIG BAD WOLF PIGS OF STEEL
The base game of Pigs of Steel is standard fare for online slot games. It’s plated on 5 reels in a 5×3 grid with 25 active paylines. Wins are calculated whenever you hit three or more matching symbols along these paylines, going from left to right. In a way, this means that the latest addition to the Big Bad Wolf series does not stray too far from the original. At least not as far as the core game systems are concerned.
Bets start at $0.20 per round, with $100 being the highest possible bet in the slot. You can win up to 18,173x the stake.
Crucially, the game also features Tumbling Reels. Otherwise known as slot cascade features, reel tumble means that all winning symbols are removed from the game. Symbols above them tumble down and take their place, and new symbols fall down from the top of the reels. This opens up space for new winning combinations, which in turn causes new cascades. Symbols will keep tumbling for as long as there are winning lines, which applies to both the base game and the bonus rounds.
The main game features in Big Bad Wolf Pigs of Steel online slot are Bonus Games (of which there are three variants), Win Multipliers, Piggy Wilds and Pigs of Steel.
The entire game revolves around the concept of Tumbling Reels, which play a crucial role in various aspects of the game. These cascades not only allow the Pigs to transform into Piggy Wilds but also activate the Pigs of Steel feature and assist in triggering Bonus Games.
For starters, we have Piggy Wilds. Pig symbols (regular high-paying symbols) can transform into Wild symbols on the second, fourth, and sixth consecutive Tumble in the specific sequence of red, green, and blue pigs. By observing the grid, players can easily identify which pig is due for transformation.
The Pigs of Steel feature serves as a sort of protection from the Big Bad Wolf. The wolf attempts to blow the house down, which can end Cascades. To unlock the first protective layer, players must eliminate a minimum of three Pigs from the screen through Tumbles. As you continue to clear six Pigs, you get additional layers of protection, allowing cascades to last longer.
BIG BAD WOLF PIGS OF STEEL BONUS ROUNDS
You can activate Free Spins by hitting 3, 4, or 5 Scatters anywhere on the grid. Although this will always grant you a total of 10 Spins, the number of Scatters you collect will determine the Multipliers.
There are three choices available: the Bonus Game, Super Bonus Game, and Ultra Bonus Game, each offering Win Multipliers of 1x, 2x, and 3x respectively. In all Free Spin rounds except for the Ultra Bonus Game, the Piggy Wilds will reset after each spin, while the Pigs of Steel will only reset during the Bonus Game spins.
You can use the feature buy button to instantly trigger the Bonus Game or the Super Bonus Game for 60x or 240x the bet, respectively.
