Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? You won’t be. In fact, you’ll be on his side as you blow away the screen and try and get those damn wild pigs.
This Big Bad Wolf mobile slot is a frustrating game. We warn you, right now.
You load it up, and you see that it’s one of the prettiest machines you’ve seen for a while. It could even rival the beautiful Gonzo’s Quest slot.
The reason we mention the famous adventurer is that much like that game, Big Bad Wolf from Quickspin has cascading spins. Or, as they like to call it, ‘swooping reels’, because when you get a win, the symbols get ‘blown away’ and you then get more symbols tumbling down from above.
Mini free tumbles on not so many spins
It’s a feature we love in many of our favourite mobile slot games, and one that works… relatively well here.
The reason we say ‘relatively’ is because of the high return to player rate of 97.34%, The Big Bad Wolf slot actually does pay decent often enough that you won’t feel cheated.
But the whole point of these tumbling reels is that the more wins you get in succession, the more pigs on the reel turn wild, leading to bigger wins.
However, in the base game, you rarely get more than two or three consecutive wins in a row. In theory it could happen, but we found that it rarely did.
So there you are, watching for the wins to cascade into a flurry of wilds… but instead get maybe your bet back. There’s no multipliers like in Gonzo to make you hope for a truly big bad win.
Of anything, it reminded us more of IGT’s Pixies of The Forest because you have to wait for the free spins to get the wins.
Animated free spins in the Big Bad Wolf slot
Here the animations on these 25 paylines come alive. Get three wolves on the screen and the big, bad will show up to blow away your little house of straw and the pigs will run to the house of wood. Nothing special about these new reels, it’s just super cute.
That said, on bad WiFi reception it can slow down the game, so if you’re playing it as a Android phone slot or iPhone slot, be a little patient. The free spins will start, just need to get over the 10 second lag.
Ready to be blown away?
Now, it doesn’t say anywhere in the game if this is true, but having played the Big Bad Wolf video slot for several hours… the wins just come easier in the free spins. Or at least, that’s what it feels like.
It’s during the free games that we’ve managed to get all three little pigs to go wild, and get a succession of wins that just kept on coming. Only ever during the bonus games.
You start with 10 free spins, but with the chain reaction of cascades, we’ve easily played 30 to 40 free spins. Because the more little pigs turn wild, the easier it is to get wins, the more ‘free’ turns you get.
We are talking 30x to 80x our bet.
So no, the Big Bad Wolf slot game won’t make you incredibly rich. That’s what happens when you side with the bad guy. But you might just end up howling at the full moon after a good round of cascading wilds.
Fun, quirky, and pretty. We’ve played on games for a lot less.Visit bgo & claim up to 50 FAIR spins on this game now!
