Back in 2013, Quickspin released what would turn out to be one of their most successful slots of all time. The Big Bad Wolf slot game won various awards and became a huge hit with online gamblers. Well, just in time for Christmas, the game has finally been re-released, this time, with a Christmas skin. Don’t worry though, all of the changes here are strictly visual, with the game still maintaining all of the great special features that made it such a hit in the first place.
Graphics & Theme
The game, as its name might suggest, draws inspiration from the classic tale of the three pigs and the big bad wolf. This time, however, everything has a bit of the Christmas spirit thrown in for good measure, with the titular wolf rather hilariously turning up as Santa Claus in order to terrorize the pigs.
The reels are set inside the three pig’s barn, which is covered in snow to capture the Christmas mood. There are two big trees also covered in snow on either side of the reel, with a beautiful field in the distance. The piggies themselves are all symbols in the game, alongside the wolf and several other Christmas inspired items and the standard card numbers.
The wolf will also make appearances during gameplay, often to taunt you but also during bonus rounds. The animations and the character design are top-notch here, and they accompanied by some enjoyable sound effects.
One of the reasons for the success of the original Big Bad Wolf slot is the range of special features that the game has on offer.
The first feature that players are likely to encounter is the swooping reels feature. This works like the Megaways cascading reels feature, with symbols dropping down to replace winning ones every time a player scores a winning combination. This will be repeated until there is no winning combination on the reels.
This feature also goes hand in hand with the pigs wild feature. On every second win in the swooping reels feature, one of the three little pig symbols will turn wild. This can then keep going every two spins until all three of the symbols have turned wild. This can lead to some massive wins.
Outside of these, there is also a fairly standard free spins round. This is triggered when players manage to land three or more of the scatter symbol on their reels. This initially triggers ten free spins, and players can continue to trigger more if they land three more wolf symbols.
Last but by no means least is the blow down the house feature. This is triggered whenever a player lands three or more of the moon symbols. The wolf then pops up, blows all of the symbols off the reels, and replaces them with higher value symbols.
Game How to Play
Getting started with the Big Bad Wolf Christmas online slot game is very easy. The game has a fairly standard set-up of 5 reels and 25 pay lines. The first thing players will need to do is select Their stake using the +/- buttons. The pay lines are adjustable, so players will have to then choose the number they want active in the game and how much they would like to place on each one. Once all of this is done, it’s time to get in the Christmas spirit and hit spin.
The game has a fairly high RTP of 97.31% and medium volatility. Players can check the value of any of the game’s symbols at any point during gameplay by opening the paytable.
