Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf, as the old children's tale goes? Slot enthusiasts certainly shouldn’t be, given that the titular furry friend, the Wolf himself, is serving up a jackpot prize of 1,000 coins in his popular title from Quickspin, a budding online slot developer dedicated to producing one of the best free slots for the web. Offering a Free Spins round complete with multipliers and scatters, plus the appropriately-named Blowing Down the House feature (read on for more on this fun and exciting feature) delivering spins and boosted payouts, this is one wolf you won’t mind running into, day or night!
The classic fairytale involving the shoddy workmanship of the Three Little Pigs and the hungry wolf seeking his next pork belly dinner has been given the slots treatment by Quickspin. This is not the first time that the brand has delved into classic storytelling, either: both Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Three Musketeers have already been brought to life in slot-tastic form. The action unfolds in the porky pals’ straw house (what were they thinking when they decided to build that?), with the classic five-reel and three-row formation.
There are 25 paylines for players to work with and a gamut of special features and bonuses to trigger during the game. To kick things off, the ‘low win’ symbols are the playing cards from 10 through Ace [Ten (10), Jack (J), Queen (Q), King (K) and Ace (A)], and these pay out prizes ranging from 5 coins to 100 based upon matching three or more on an active payline. The Three Little Pigs, the most notable symbols in the game, are next up, and they offer more rewarding payouts than all the other features and symbols:
|Symbols||3x Payout||4x Payout||5x Payout|
|'Green' Pig||15 coins||100 coins||250 coins|
|'Blue' Pig||15 coins||100 coins||250 coins|
|'Purple' Pig||25 coins||150 coins||300 coins|
The following section breaks down the four most prominent features and symbols experienced during Big Bad Wolf gameplay.
Every single winning combination in Big Bad Wolf, no matter how big or small is subject to the Swooping Reels feature. Here all winning symbols disappear from your reels and are replaced by new ones falling from above. Any new winning combos are added to your payout, and this process continues until no new wins are revealed.
The Scatter Symbol is the eponymous Big Bad Wolf, and three or more of these on your reel trigger the Free Spins round. Ten freebies in all are yours and these come backed with a tasty 3x multiplier. They can be re-triggered, too.
This slot game also offers players a unique take on the wild symbol as well. It has the traditional wild, the Honeypot, which substitutes for all non-special symbols as well as dishing out prizes of up to 1,000 coins for matching five on your reels. But there’s a twist… Each of the three pig symbols can also turn wild after a succession of winning spins. Every second winner will turn a pig wild, so two spins see the purple porker go wild, four bring the blue pig out of his shell, and finally, six wins turn the green pig loose.
The undoubted star of the show in Big Bad Wolf is the Blowing Down the House feature. During the Free Spins round the wolf will try to blow down the little piggies’ houses... and players can help. All you need to do is collect the moon symbols which appear during the feature. Three moons blow down the wooden house and earn players two more free spins, while six moons enable the wolf to blow down the brick house (some effort) and award players with two free spins and a 2x multiplier on all subsequent freebies.
