Big Bad Wolf Slot
Everyone knows an old fairy tale of Big Bad Wolf and Three Little Pigs. Swedish provider Quickspin decided to take a unique patch and used it as a main theme for their slot, Big Bad Wolf. Despite being launched back in 2012, slot features some impressive visuals that are filled with personality and the soundtrack will take you right to the lively countryside.
Big Bad Wolf has a basic 5 reel, 3 row grid and 25 ways to win. However it stands out big time thanks to its unusually high RTP of 97.34%, so you will get some huge wins out of this game with the maximum win being capped at 1,225 your bet.
You can start playing by placing a minimum bet of at least C$0.25, while the maximum allowed stake is C$125.
Big Bad Wolf still maintains its popularity among the slot lovers, and the main reason for that mainly comes from the variety of features and fun-packed gameplay. Let’s dive deeper into it.
Gameplay & Bonus Features
Symbols in Big Bad Wolf are packed with details and quality. Regular symbols include low-paying icons, represented by A, K, Q, J and 10 royals, encased in the walls of the straw house. These will pay you between 3x and 4x for 5-of-a-kind on a winning payline.
Toy Pig is the sole medium-paying symbol of the slot that will earn you 8x your bet for getting a combination of 5 Toy Pigs.
Three pigs take the role of the high-paying symbols in this game. Brick House and Wooden House pigs are worth 10x your bet, while Straw House Pig awards you with 12x max. Again, you will get the maximum value if you manage to get 5 of the same symbol on a single payline.
Wilds and Scatters are also present in the Big Bad Wolf symbol pool. Wilds are represented by Beehive icons. These will not only function as a regular Wild, by replacing all the regular symbols to form winning combinations, but also will pay on their own, up to 40x for the combo of 5.
Wolf is the Scatter here, and while it won’t pay anything on its own, it is one of the ways to activate the very much rewarding Free Spins Mode.
The feature you will notice the earliest is the Swooping Reels feature. Basically, every time you score a winning combo, the winning symbols will disappear from the reels, leaving an empty space. The space won’t stay empty however as a fresh bunch of symbols will tumble down, hurrying to replace the old symbols. The tumbling action will continue as long as you’re making consecutive wins.
Pig Turn Wild
This feature is directly related to the tumbling mechanics we just talked about. For every 2 consecutive swooping wins you make, one of the three pig icons will appear, replacing any other symbol. What’s special about it, is that it will act as a Wild symbol of its own, and will become sticky until the end of the Swooping Reels feature.
Each pig symbol has its own requirements for it to become a Wild:
Straw Pig needs 2 consecutive wins;
Wooden House Pig needs 4;
Brick House Pig needs 6;
Free Spins Feature
Free Spins Mode is the main highlight of the Big Bad Wolf slot. To activate it, land 3 or more Wolf Scatters with a single spin anywhere on the reels. The round will begin with 10 Free Spins, and you can get 10 more by landing 3+ Scatters extra as you play.
Blowing Down the House Feature
If you are familiar with this tale, you may know that the big bad wolf is hungry and wants to get the pigs out of their houses. And that’s why he is set on blowing their little huts down.
Blowing Down the House Mode is linked to the Free Spins Round. That’s because during Free Spins a new symbol, the Moon Scatter will appear.
The Moon Symbols appear on the reel 5 only. Your objective is to collect as many of them as you can during the Free Spins Mode.
Gather 3 and the wolf will blow down the wooden house, awarding you with 2 Free Spins.
Gather 6 and the brick house will be blown down, getting you 2 Free Spins and a 2x multiplier that will apply to all the remaining Free Spins.
