Based on the children’s story of the Three Little Pigs, Quickspin brings together this endearing 5-reel and 25 fixed paylines slot Big Bad Wolf where you can win up to €4,000 or 40x your bet per line!
Graphics that blow you away
Ok, so maybe the title is exaggerating a little bit, but we did like the setting for the story, which is on rolling green hills of farmland. Symbols you’ll see include each of the three little pigs, a beehive, big bad wolf, full moon and teddy bear, right down to the basic poker symbols. You can hear the sound of birds chirping in the distance and insects buzzing. The cascading symbols, which the game refers to as swooping look and sound like boxes falling down from above and you can hear the wind as it blows and the howling of the wolf as he blows down the straw house to trigger the start of the free spins feature.
Swooping reels feature
The game features swooping reels triggered by any winning combination. During this feature, winning symbols will disappear and the empty spaces left in their place are filled with new symbols falling down from above that may create new winning paylines. This feature is free and repeats provided new winning paylines are created. To enhance your chances at winning more prizes and increasing the duration of features on every second win, one of the base pigs symbols turns wild until all three have turned wild by the 6th consecutive win and remain that way until the feature ceases.
Regular wild, wolf free spins and blowing down the house
We talked about the pigs turn wild symbol so now we will mention the beehive regular wild which substitutes for all other symbols except the wolf scatter symbol and moon symbol with 2, 3, 4 or 5 symbols on a winning payline paying you up to €20, €200, €1,000 and €4,000. The wolf scatter symbol is your chance to blow the roof off with three or more appearing anywhere on the spaces activating the 10 free spins feature with three or more acting as a 3x multiplier. The feature can be re-triggered while active for another 10 free spins! The blowing down the house feature is a way of adding additional free spins or multipliers and you do this by collecting moon symbols that land on the last reel during the free spins games. By collecting three symbols, the wolf is able to blow down the wooden house and awards 2 additional spins while 6 moon symbols blows down the brick house and awards you 2 additional spins and a 2x multiplier.
