Big Bad Wolf Video Slot review
Big Bad Wolf is a QuickSpin powered slot game with 5 reels and 25 paylines. The game is based on the famous childhood story featuring Little Red Riding Hood and the big bad wolf of course. Graphically superb with superb bonus features, you can play from as little as 25p a spin or as much as £100 a spin. The game features pigs too!
Big Bad Wolf is the first QuickSpin slot game to use the Swooping Reels feature (which suggests others to come will). When you have a winning spin, the winning symbols from the spin will get blown away and disappear. The remaining symbols fall into the gaps with new spaces available. These are then filled with new symbols which fall from above.
The Swooping Reels feature therefore gives you the opportunity to win time and time again from just 1 spin. This is quite similar to the Avalanche Reels feature in NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest or the Tumbling Reels feature in IGT’s Da Vinci Diamonds.
Anyway, consecutive winning spins plays nicely into the Pigs Turn Wild feature. A pig will turn wild for every 2nd winning spins you achieve. If you have 6 consecutive winning spins, 3 pigs will turn into wilds! Numerous wins from 1 spin is obviously desirable but combined with 3 wilds will results in a bigger return.
According to QuickSpin, the Free Spins feature is where the real magic happens – this is triggered by getting 3 or more Big Bad Wolf scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You will be rewarded with 10 free spins initially but you can get an additional 10 free spins for every 3 Big Bad Wolf symbols you get during the feature.
The free spins game encompasses a Blowing Down The House feature – this will remind you of the famous line “I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house down”. When moon symbols appear on the reels, these are then collected and used to help the wolf blow down the houses. 3 moons will blow down the wood house and give you 2 additional free spins whilst 6 moons will blow down the brick house with a further 2 free spins. A 2x multiplier is applied to the following wins.
Big Bad Wolf is a good slot game where the big wins will come in the Free Spins feature – I’ve managed to win over 120 times my stake on a couple occasions when I got 2 retriggers (making 30 free spins in total). There will be more to come from QuickSpin – they have impressed me with this game and I can’t wait to see what else they release. If you like games based on fairy tales, you should try Ash Gaming’s Alice in Wonderland which is very good.
