With the Big Bad Wolf Slot it conjours up that “Let me in, little pig, I want to come and spin,” says the wolf. “Not by the hairs of my chinny, chin, chin!” replies the piggie. And who could blame him? I wouldn’t let the Big Bad Wolf get his paws on this hilarious slot title from Quickspin. I want to spin, spin, spin it myself!

Gameplay

Like any good fairy story, this tale is beautifully illustrated. Our five reels are wooden stacks that make up the straw home that houses the first little pig, each one brilliantly characterised and animated (needless to say the 3rd pig with the trowel in his hand has a distinctly smug look on his face. And who could blame him?). In one of several mischievous twists we see the other side to the pigs. Quickspin’s Pigs Turn Wild feature runs in the base game and the bonus game, creating a wild pig with every second win and making this a wild pig house party!

Spin the reels and the stacks drop away, and any wins across the 25 paylines see the winning stacks blown away in Quickspin’s Swooping Reels feature. These stacks are replaced by others, effectively meaning that a single spin can go on-and-on, just like the Big Bad Wolf’s blowing.

Bonuses

In another cheeky twist, we actually want the Wolf to turn up as he launches the Blowing Down The House bonus feature, which results in 10 free spins. Land three or more Wolf symbols to bring on the night and the howl of the Big Bad Wolf beneath a pale white full moon. He blows away the house made of straw and turns his attention to the house made of wood, and landing three moon symbols in these first 10 free spins will cause the wolf to blow away the wooden house and give us another two free spins, his big yellow eyes trained on the house made of bricks.

We all know that, like the best of us, the Big Bad Wolf can’t go on forever, but hit six moon symbols and at least he will afford us yet more free spins and a 2x multiplier for all our bonus winnings. At the risk of mixing my fairytales, what big winnings you have, Mr. Wolf!

Summary

I never thought I’d see the day when the hero of this story was the Big Bad Wolf, but thanks to the innovation of Quickspin that is most certainly the case. He can huff and puff as much as he likes. He can even borrow my inhaler.
