Expert's review Kati Saari

Slot tested

Ah, who doesn’t remember the fairy-tale of the Big Bad Wolf and the three little pigs? Swedish software provider Quickspin has gone all out to create a slot game based on this childhood fable.

Reminiscent of the NetEnt Fairy-tale Slot game series, Quickspin went out on a limb to develop and create its own fairytale collection.

Quickspin might not enjoy the same fruitful success as other Swedish game developers such as Net Entertainment and Yggdrasil, but what this company does supremely well, is delivering top-notch games with striking graphics. You can see it for yourself. The attention to detail in this game is remarkable.

In terms of sounds, you can enjoy the countryside views with the birds chirping in the background — no need to drive for hours to enjoy the green pastures as Big Bad Wolf provides the scenery.

I found that some of the features here imitate those of slot game Gonzo’s Quest. The way the symbols fall with a thud and how winning symbols replace new ones are evocative of the NetEnt Classic. Since this slot game was released in 2013, it comes as no surprise, that Quickspin wanted to keep up with the competition.

Adopting swopping symbols where winning symbols are replaced by new ones giving you a respin, Big Bad Wolf enjoys a free spins feature, multipliers and scatters. Watch out for the pigs, as a number of consecutive wins can transform them into wilds. Most notably, there is the Blowing Down the House feature, where you must collect moon symbols in order to blow down houses and to bag yourself multipliers and spins.

Spread over 5 reels and with 25 pay lines running across the reels, you have the option to activate and deactivate as many as you wish. I tend to opt for all pay lines to get a good feel of the game.

One of the best performing Quickspin slot games to date, it enjoys a high RTP of 97.34%, making it the ideal slot to play if you are looking for great returns.

Symbols & Features

Big Bad Wolf follows a relatively classic scheme, with familiar symbols to help you get well-acquainted from the get-go. Bear in mind, that whenever you hit a winning pay line, the wind will sweep away your winning combo and replace it with new ones every time, fundamentally rewarding you with a re-spin.

Card symbols from 10 going all the way up to Ace are the lowest paying symbols. You’ll quickly notice they tend to crop up often.

On the other hand, the pigs and the Wolf himself are the highest paying symbols. This game offers two types of Wild symbols. There is the standard Wild which replaces other symbols in a bid to create a winning combo, and then there is the Pigs Gone Wild Feature. This is where things pick up and go cray-cray!

For each second win during the Swopping Reels feature, one of the prominent three pigs transforms into a Wild. Completely different pigs will also transform into a Wild on the second, fourth and sixth consecutive win.

  • Big Bad Wolf Free Spins:

    When it comes to the free spins round, there is nothing extraordinary or anything that is slightly off the norm.

    Land three or more Wolf scatters anywhere on the reels to trigger ten free spins. You can land an additional ten free spins if you land three or more scatters during the free spins round.

  • Blowing Down the House feature

    This feature comes part and parcel with the free spins round, but it’s so magnificent, that I had to dedicate an entire section to it. You need to keep an eye out for the moon symbols, as landing three or more of these will get things going.

    Three moons will blow the wooden house down and award you with two additional free spins. When you land six moons, the brick house will come apart, but you’ll gain two extra spins. There is a x2 multiplier that is also applied throughout this feature.

In Conclusion

Big Bad Wolf brings a whiff of fresh air to the gaming industry (pardon the pun). If you can ignore the high variance, this game can be both an attractive game and a rewarding one. It is exceptionally challenging to fault a game that is choc-a-block with bonus features.

Some players might add that playing with bigger bets might slightly improve your chances of winnings. I think you should place bets in proportion to your bankroll. No strategy can improve your chances of winnings.

Keep in mind that all of these slot games use a Random Number Generator to guarantee fairness and randomness.

Changing bet sizes won’t have any impact whatsoever on boosting your chances. Just play within your means, play responsibly and most importantly, have fun.
