This is a slot machine which is based on the famous Three Little Pigs fairy tale, in which a devious wolf tries various tricks to lure the pigs to come out so that he can feast on them.
The Big Bad Wolf slot machine is much in the same vein as the fairy tale and features five reels and 25 paylines of action. With a stroke of luck, players can win as much as 1,000 coins in this slot. To do that, they need to line up five bee hive symbols on a line.
Look and feel
Big Bad Wolf naturally features all three of the little pigs in starring roles as symbols on the reels of the game. Their nemesis – the titular Big Bad Wolf – plays his part as a special icon, whilst high playing card symbols make up the rest of the imagery on the reels.
The graphics in the Big Bad Wolf slot are something to marvel at. They have been carefully crafted using 3D imagery, and despite the slot being a few years old now, it still looks spiffy. The slot machine also incorporates other elements of the fairy tale into its design, such as the three pig’s houses. Faithfulness to the original tale has clearly been a key part of this slot’s success.
The wagering menu in Big Bad Wolf is not thematic, and it allows only minute alterations in how bets are constructed. Players can use the total bet button to select stakes which range from 0.25 coins per spin, up to $250 per spin, but that’s about as deep as it goes.
The best-paying symbol in this game is also the wild icon. The bee hive can substitute for all other symbols in the game, save for a multiplier wild, and free spin scatters. There is a Swooping Reels feature in this slot. When players bag a win, the winning symbols will be blown away and replaced by new ones. If players land multiple wins in succession, pig symbols will be transformed into wilds. Pig one, two and three will turn wild with the second, fourth, and sixth consecutive wins a player has.
Players can trigger a free spins bonus by landing three or more of the wolf free spin icons. The bonus initially offers ten free games. A second bonus – known as the Blowing Down the House feature – can be triggered by landing moon symbols during the free spins feature. Three moons will see the wolf blow down the wooden house, whilst six moons can see him blow down the brick house. The purpose of this second feature is that it can see additional spins and multipliers added to a player’s spins.
