Big Bad Wolf is Quickspin’s take on the Three Little Pigs fairy tale, with three little piglets hiding from the big bad wolf who’s trying to blow their house away. And you will watch the wolf do just that in the free spins game! The game was released in May 2013 but it feels like a much more modern title because of stunning graphics and innovative gameplay.
Bets can range from $0.25 to $100, and there are 25 paylines. Big Bad Wolf has five low win symbols, and four medium win symbols – three piglets and a rag doll piglet, probably a decoy for the wolf. There is a Wild symbol, a Wolf Scatter, and a special Moon Scatter on reel 5 that only appears in the free spins game and its purpose is to advance the free spins game to the second and third level.
The game only really starts once you form a winning payline. That’s when the Swooping Reels feature activates: all the symbols that formed the win will collapse only to be replaced by other symbols that fall down from above, and you’ll make progress in the Pigs turn wild feature. For every second win, one of the pigs will turn into Wild, for a total of all three Pigs being Wild after six consecutive wins. The goal of the game is to be fortunate enough to hit six wins in a row with these features so all three pigs turn into Wilds, for a big win on that seventh spin and perhaps eighth or more. The game usually stops after one or two wins, so you’ll need luck to have wins piling up one after another.
The real treat of this game is, however, the Blowing Down the House feature, which is basically a progressive free spins game. The usual rules apply for the free spins game as well and you’ll have Pigs turning Wild just like in the base game. You’ll need three Wolf Scatters to trigger 10 free spins, and if you get three more during free spins you’ll get +10 spins.
Moon symbol on reel 5 will help Wolf to blow down the house, and when you get a total of three, the Wolf will blow down the wood house and you’ll get +2 free spins, moving onto the brick house. When you get a total of six (three more), the Wolf will blow down the brick house and you’ll get +2 spins with a 2x mutliplier. Needless to say, during this free spins feature you’ll be winning tons of cash. It also seems the Swooping Reels feature generates wins more often in the free spins game than it does in the base game.
Big Bad Wolf is a thrilling slot game that will soon take you over – if not when you land some consecutive wins with the Swooping Reels feature, then it definitely will when the Wolf blows the wood house away. It’s an innovative experience for all slot players, and the game has a great theoretical return to player percentage of 97.34%. It’s a fun experience and there’s a chance of a nice win when you trigger the free spins.
