Big Bad Wolf: Spinning a Quick Tale

bigbadwolf3It does make everyone happy to reminisce about the younger days wherein we got to hear stories before sleeping. The Big Bad Wolf is a five-reel, three-row, and twenty-five pay line slot from Quickspin, and has the same effect on you that those bedtime stories had, with its fairy tale themed gameplay.

Gameplay:

The game is a take-off to the children’s fairy tale of the three little pigs and the big bad wolf. The remarkably well-designed game has symbols such as cute little pigs, playing cards and a wolf. The setting includes a straw house, fields, and hills in the background. The pleasing backdrop and high-quality symbols make it adequately attractive for the players.

BigBadWolf2The player command buttons are easily available with the gear button helping the players to choose the number of pay lines that they wish to use. The players are also offered the option of an auto mode, which spins the reels on its own. The symbols fall into place one by one on the grid without spinning. The wind blows away winning combinations paving the way for more wins. The game boasts a high return to player of approximately 97%.

Huff Them Away! The Game Features:

  • BigBadWolfSwooping Symbols: After a successful spin is completed, the swooping symbol feature removes the winning combination from the reels. This enables those symbols that are directly above the winning symbols, to fall into the free slots with a possibility of triggering another win. The feature is active as long as the wins are established. Higher numbers of successive wins will activate the wild feature, which turns the pigs into wild symbols.
  • Wild Symbols: There are two wild symbols in the game. One is the beehive symbol, which serves the function of a regular wild symbol. The pigs also become wild symbols after a certain number of wins. The first pig turns itself into a wild symbol after two wins, the second pig after the next two wins and the third after six wins.
  • Scatter Symbols: A set of ten free spins are triggered when three or more wolf scatter symbols are accumulated anywhere on the reels which also paves the way for a 3X multiplier.
  • Blowing Down the House Feature: The player needs to accumulate three moon symbols to activate this feature. The feature awards two extra spins. However, finding six moons will make the brick house fall down, awarding two bonus points and a 2X multiplier.

This medium-variance game is certainly a visual treat with cartoon-styled symbols and settings. It doesn’t score poorly on the gameplay either. The wins are tough to come by, but the players score big when it hits. The free spins and other unique features set this game apart from the other run-of-the-mill slot games. However, players do miss the bonus round, and the chances for doubles that are offered in other games. The Big Bad Wolf will surely blow the player away with its huffs and puffs.
