Don’t you just love fairy tales and their happy endings? Surely you know the story of the three little pigs who lived in three different houses and received a visit from a rather nasty wolf who decided it would be very easy indeed to huff and puff and blow their homes down. Quickspin’s entertaining slot game Big Bad Wolf highlights all the fun parts of this timeless story while adding some extra winning features on top. After all, who wouldn’t like to see a wolf making an ass of himself trying to blow down a brick house?
Before you start thinking this sounds like a complicated online slot to play, fear not. The basic mechanism matches those of other simpler styled games so all you need for a win is three similar symbols on a pay-line. There are nine regular symbols with the highest paying one landing you 300 coins if you match up five of them. You’ll notice some old favourites such as A, K and Q that have been redesigned to fit the rustic and playful look of the game.
As you would expect Big Bad Wolf comes with a Wild Symbol, a beehive in this case, that replaces all symbols apart from the Scatter and other special Wilds. The Wolf himself is the Scatter and three or more symbols will cause him to blow down the house made of straw and trigger 10 free spins. Now it gets interesting because while your free spins are in play, you can collect moon symbols that appear on the last reel.
These trigger the Blowing Down The House Feature which does exactly what is says. If you collect three moons during the free spins, the Wolf blows down the wood house and you get two extra free spins. Remember how in the story things looked a little grim for the pigs as the wolf successfully tackled the houses built of straw and wood but he never got past the bricks? The online slot game rewrites the ending as six moon symbols mean he can blow down the brick house, giving you another two free spins and x2 multiplier. Poor little pigs.
Thankfully our piggy friends have their own special feature to help you bag some more wins. The fun starts with the Swooping Reels Feature: every time you win, the winning symbols on the reels will be blown away and replaced with new symbols falling from the roof of the house. Have you figured out what this means yet? You can win multiple times during a single spin as the Swooping Reels will keep on going until there are no more winning combinations!
Now the pigs come into play because the more wins you get on a single spin, the more ‘Pigs Turn Wild’. That’s right, the three normal pig symbols turn wild and increase your chances of winning big. Two winning combinations on a spin and the first pig becomes a Wild Symbol. At the fourth win another pig turns wild and once you hit six wins, the final pig joins in. Bear in mind that as soon as your winning streak on that spin is over, all pigs turn back to normal.
Perhaps the Quickspin version of this popular fairy tale doesn’t have the best ending for our little friends but we’ll forgive them. The result is an incredibly entertaining slot game with 5 reels and 25 pay-lines, filled to the brim with special features to help you win more often. Come play Big Bad Wolf at Jackpot247 today and bring home the bacon. (Sorry, we actually meant ‘fun’.)
