Big Bad Wolf will thrill
The ambiance of these Big Bad Wolf slots is composed of the white noise of nature such as soft birdcalls. The background appears to be farm country. The little pigs are hiding out in a barnlike home in the woods framed by apple trees. Cash balance, paylines, total bet, wins, autoplay, and the spin dial can all be found along the bottom of the screen beneath the barn making it easy for players to track wins, losses, and overall cash flow of gameplay. The design is simple, straightforward, and player friendly which is brilliant.
Big Bad Wolf allows 13 betting options that offer a wide range with a minimum total bet of 0.25p and a maximum of £100.00 per spin at Vera&John which makes it accessible to players with just about any budget (this may vary from casino to casino). This slot game boasts a maximum payout per spin of £1.200. Auto play allows for continuous spins anywhere from 10-1.000 with the option to stop gameplay at any time with the push of a button. This allows players to have full control of gameplay at all times despite continuous automated spins.
There are 4 Special Symbols at Big Bad Wolf: 2 different Wild Symbols: Regular Wilds and Pigs Turn Wild, the Wolf Scatter symbol, and the Moon symbol. Wilds can stand in for any Regular Symbol. The Special Symbols are all involved in some way or other in the four Bonus Features (see below for further details).
The Regular Symbols in order of greatest to least values include: medium value – the three pigs (purple, blue, green) and a stuffed toy (pink) followed by the lesser: Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and 10. The special symbol regular Wild is worth the most with a value of (5-1,000) and only 2 are needed for a win. The 10 symbol is worth the least with a value of (5-75).
Advanced Auto play not only allows players a generous range of 10-1.000 consecutive spins, but it also allows a customizable “loss limit and “single win limit” to be set for greater convenience of gameplay. Of course, there is also the option of both to be set to no limit. It’s great to have the customizable option for greater autonomy and control of gameplay with this online slot.
There is a “stop” button that allows players to manually stop auto play at any time. There is also the option to set the space bar to trigger spins if players wish to do so from their computer.
A unique feature to Quickspin slots, found in settings at the upper right hand corner, allows players to relive wins via the “replay” option (and really, who wouldn’t want to?)
Bonus features of Big Bad Wolf
10 free spins are triggered by a slot spin that yields 3 or more wolf Scatter symbols. If an additional 3 or more wolf Scatter symbols appear during the free spins round, another 10 free spins will be awarded. This is a great feature that not only enhances a player’s chances to win but to win for free!
Swooping Reels is a unique bonus feature triggered by any winning combo. The winning symbols disappear to be replaced by new ones. If this results in a new winning combo, the slot round will continue until there are no more winning combos.
Pigs Turn Wild is related to the the Swooping Reels bonus feature. For each additional win beyond the first, a Pig symbol will turn wild. For example, on the second win, the purple pig turns Wild. On the 4th win, another pig (the blue one) turns wild. On the 6th win, the green pig turns Wild. All Wilds of Big Bad Wolf remain until the end of the Swooping Reels round increasing the player’s chances for winning combinations.
The Blowing Down the House Feature is triggered by 3 or 6 Moon special symbols. 3 Moon symbols call the big bad wolf to blow the little pigs’ wooden house down. He huffs, and puffs, and awards 2 additional free spins. 6 Moon symbols summon the wolf to huff and puff and blow a brick house down to award a 2x Multiplier all on all spins that follow.
