Launched on the Quickspin platform back in 2013, Big Bad Wolf Slot was one of this operator’s earlier releases and remains hugely popular.
Once you’ve experienced the charming storybook-style graphics, high volatility and exciting features from free spins to swooping symbols and extra Wilds for yourself, you’ll understand why. The slot is also a previous winner of the prestigious Game of the Year accolade at the EGR Operator Awards.
Play on desktop or mobile across five reels and three rows with 25 Paylines, which are not fixed. This game takes the tale of the Three Little Pigs as its inspiration and the whole thing is gorgeously designed and set against the backdrop of (what else?) a straw home, as hills and fields roll off into the distance. Assuming you’re not scared of the big bad wolf, prepare to blow the house down!
How to play
Bets kick off from 25p a spin, but you can spend up to £250 a pop if you’re so minded. Set your bets and adjust how many Paylines you want to play, bearing in mind that you need to bet big to win big! Meanwhile, your current credit balance is handily displayed to the left of the reels, plus there’s an Autoplay function. Otherwise just hit Spin and you’re good to go.
You’ll find the standard playing-card values 10 through Ace here, which may be low payers but do crop up pretty often, so there are numerous opportunities to line them up.
Big Bad Wolf Slot special features
The wolf himself is the Scatter, meanwhile, the Wild has a new format. While the hive symbol is the regular Wild, the three piggies also turn Wild following a particular number of winning rounds.
There’s a meter at the top of the reels to show you how you’re doing on this front, but essentially the first pig becomes Wild after a couple of wins; after six swoops, all three of the wee porkers become Wild.
This is your best route to riches with this game. Land three wolf Scatters wherever you like on the reels to bag 10 no-charge whirls.
Watch as the wolf snares the piggies and blows down the house. The feature of pigs becoming Wilds mentioned above is active here.
Finally, collect moon icons on the last reel during this round to earn further freebies and a 2x multiplier.
This is one of the most entertaining aspects of Big Bad Wolf Slot. After a win, the icons are ‘blown away’, and replaced by new symbols which come tumbling down so that you get more wins, with more piggies turning Wild. It’s a perk that’s reminded a few reviewers of Gonzo’s Quest.
Return to Player (RTP)
Bear in mind that Big Bad Wolf Slot is a volatile game, so expect less frequent, if bigger, wins, while the RTP or Return to Player is high at 97.34%.
With its unique theme, this game scores highly in the entertainment stakes, so you should have a lot of fun playing Big Bad Wolf Slot. Equally, it’s pretty simple to get your head around how to play, while the high-quality graphics and sound are upbeat and attention-grabbing.
Clearly it may not be the first choice if you like to win little and often. But try it for yourself – and let us know you get on.
