Big Bad Wolf is a twenty-five payline video slot powered by Quickspin featuring naturally the nursery rhyme Three Little Pigs, the story of three pigs and their attempts to build a house strong enough to foil the wolf.
Big Bad Wolf is a really lovely looking online slot, and it utilises cascading reels. It’s a five reel and twenty-five fixed payline slot set against the backdrop of a hilly, rural scene. The reels are housed under a thatched roof, and each symbol is a wooden crate featuring an image.
Symbols in Big Bad Wolf
The standard playing card symbols are the low-value ones whilst the higher value symbols are three different pigs and a pig stuffed toy. The bonus symbols are a beehive wild, a wolf scatter and a moon symbol.
Big Bad Wolf also has a new take on the wild icon. In addition to the beehive that is the regular wild, the three pigs turn wild after a certain number of winning rounds. The first pig turns wild after two wins, the second after four wins and the third after six wins.
There is no shortage of features in Big Bad Wolf either. The first thing to notice is that it uses swooping symbols. After each successful spin, the winning symbols will be removed and replaced by the symbols directly above. The reels will keep on dropping as long there’s a winning combination on display.
Bonus Features in Big Bad Wolf
This is the cascading reels, and when players land winning combinations, those crates disappear, allowing more to drop in to create more winning combinations. The more wins players land in this manner, the further along the Pigs Turn Wild feature they advance.
Pigs Turn Wild
As mentioned above, to the top right of the reels, players will notice three pigs with two circles below each one; each swooping reels win fills in one circle with the following results:
It all adds up to a succession of wins and new wilds that should keep players happy.
Wolf Free Spins
If players land three or more wolf scatter symbols then the Free Spin bonus game is launched; first, players begin by watching a beautiful animation of the wolf blowing down the house and then the free spins will start. During this phase if they can land three additional Moon symbols, the wolf will blow down the wood house and give players two extra spins – six moons will blow down the brick house, providing another two spins and an x2 multiplier on more wins.
Big Bad Wolf brings some crisp approach to a well-known story, and the result is a fun and beautiful online slot game. Big Bad Wolf is probably one of the most engaging slots - the bonus games are innovative, particularly the cascading reels mechanism. The free spins are players best route to riches though – if they manage to re-trigger the free games then watch out. This Big Bad Wolf may not be so bad after all!
