The Big Bad Wolf is obviously based on the familiar fairy tale of the three little pigs and their attempts to build a house strong enough to foil the big bad wolf. This entertaining slot game features well designed graphics that capture the essence of the children’s folk story, and offers plenty of new unique features.
The reels themselves are framed within a large straw house with trees on either side, all set in a rural scene with green hills and fields stretching into the distance. Graphics are beautiful, with soft colours and animations that occur throughout the game. The symbols are all placed in little wooden boxes in the frame of the house.
The Big Bad Wolf is a five reel game with twenty five fixed pay lines produced by Quickspin Gaming. The high value symbols are the three different little Pigs and a stuffed pig toy. The lower value symbols are the traditional playing cards from ten through to the Ace. The Wild symbol is a Beehive, and as such can substitute for any other symbol in the game to complete a winning combination, apart from the Scatter. The Wolf is the Scatter symbol, and a Moon bonus symbol.
The Cascading Reels
The Wild system in Big Bad Wolf is unusual like other mobile pokies for real money. Each spin with a win is recorded, and every second win will make a Pig turn Wild. When you land a winning combination, those symbols in the wooden boxes will disappear, and others will drop into the vacant spaces. These are called cascading reels, and will give many chances for you to form new winning combinations. The more wins you land in this manner, the further along the feature of Pigs Turn Wild you will move.
Little Pigs Turn Wild
On the top right of the reels in the Big Bad Wolf slot you will see three pigs with two circles below each one. Each cascading reel will fill in one circle, with the result that two circles filled in will result in one of the Pigs turning Wild. If four circles get filled in the second Pig will turn Wild, and if six circles get filled in, the third Pig will also become Wild. This will bring a result of a succession of wins with extra Wilds. Each winning combination you manage to form will turn a new Pig into a Wild symbol for up to six spins.
Wolf Free Spins
If you land three or more of the Big Bad Wolf Scatters anywhere on the reels, you will activate the Free spins bonus round, and you will be given ten free spins. During the free spins round, the Blowing Down the House Feature is also initiated when you collect at least three Moon bonus symbols. With three Moon symbols the Big Bad Wolf will blow away all icons, and the straw house with it, and you will win two more free spins. If you find six Moon symbols the Wolf will blow down the brick house, and you will get another two free spins, and a multiplier of two on all wins. The more Moon symbols you can find, the more prizes you will receive.
The cascading reels make The Big Bad Wolf an enjoyable slot game for all players. You can activate all twenty five pay lines in the game, or as many as you wish. Future cash rewards do, however, depend on the number of your pay lines as well as your bet per line.
