Big Bad Wolf by Quickspin
Big Bad Wolf is a very modern 3D online slot. It is not found in any brick and mortar casinos, and is as yet not mobile either. The slot has the regular five reels and plays out over twenty five paylines. It does differ on one way however in that the reels don’t spin. Instead they cascade, which means that they fall from above one by one. All twenty five paylines are always in play, and the game has a wide wager amount from 0.25 up to 125 coins. Although it has no progressive jackpot, Big Bad Wolf will appeal to all kinds of players as it has a number of special features and very good graphics.
3D Animated Graphics
Quickspin has gone the route of modern 3D graphics with their slot Big Bad Wolf. They are still in cartoon style, but instead of looking like they come from a children’s book they look more like the come from an animated movie. The reels themselves are not the usual, and all symbols are set in small wooden boxes which fall from above. This adds to the animation and overall feel of the game to make it even more like an interactive animated movie. The symbols are all highly detailed, and would not look out of place in a modern video game.
Fairy Tale Theme
The plot for Big Bad Wolf is a familiar one, where three little pigs try to outwit a Big Bad Wolf. The difference in this slot however is that we are on the wolf’s side, and are trying to outwit the pigs. The basic symbols in the game are from a deck of cards, but are designed to look like they are made of wood, and fit into the theme well. Next up we have the three pigs themselves along with a piggy stuffed toy. Again these symbols are very detailed and well designed. Big Bad Wolf has a few special symbols as well, the first being a bee hive which acts as a wild and can replace any other symbol on the reels except for the scatter and the bonus symbol. The Wolf is the games scatter and launches the free spins round. Finally we have a moon symbol that appears in the bonus round.
This is a rather different feature of Big Bad Wolf, whereby when you land a winning combination on your reels in the base game, they symbols that form a part of that combination will disappear, leaving space for more symbols to fall in their crates from above. This also directly affects the Pigs Wild feature.
Pigs Wild Feature
At the top right of your reels are three pigs, each with two circle underneath them. Every time you make a win and the swooping reels feature is triggered, those circles get filled in. As each pig’s circles fill up, they turn wild.
Wolf Scatter Free Spins
The games scatter symbol, the Wolf, is found anywhere on the reels, and three of him will launch the free spins round. This round is kicked off with a lengthy animation of how the wolf blows down the pigs houses. During this phase a new symbol is introduced. The more moon symbols you get, the more houses you blow down, and the more free spins you win. Should you blow down the final house, you will receive a 2x multiplier as well.
