Theme and basic information
This particular slot was released in December of 2020 right before Christmas Eve to bring positive emotions to the loyal players of the company.
The Bad Wolf, as always, is ready to blow a house of the three little piggies down. Though in this version besides such a bad behavior of a Wolf, you can expect the winter magic, I mean, you will see the glowing Christmas decorations, snow, winter coats of little piggies and, of course, the special Christmas music that brings an atmosphere of happiness.
Actually, as I’ve mentioned, the plot is not so magical, and Wolf has a goal to catch the piggies and blow their house away, which is not kind and happy at all. But, fortunately, it is only a fairy tale and nothing more. So that you shouldn’t be worried about the piggies. And the only advice I can give you is to enjoy the game.
As for the general look of the slot, it consists of 5 reels and 3 rows. So, it is a traditional classic slot.
The betting mechanics is quite simple, as in any traditional slot. You are able to change the total bet amount which varies from 0,25 euros to 100 euros per one spin.
There are 10 paying symbols in this slot including Wild symbol, one Scatter symbol and one Moon symbol that triggers Blowing down the house features which blows the wooden house of the little piggies.
The highest paying symbol of this slot is Wild which looks like a beehive and pays up to 40x a bet per one spin.
And the lowest paying symbols are Jack and 10 of royals which can bring only 3x a bet maximum which equals to 300 euros if a bet is 100 euros and all 5 such symbols will be collected.
As for the highest win per line, it is 4,000 euros maximum. The Wild symbol is able to bring you such a sum of money. To get the win you have to collect all 5 Wilds on one pay line.
For the record, Wild has a picture of a beehive covered with snow, which also has the ribbon of red color pinned to it. As usual, Wild substitutes for all symbols except for Wolf Scatter symbol and Moon symbol.
The slot has a fascinating “pigs turn Wild” feature that I will consider in more detail in the “special features” section.
The Wolf that is worn like a Santa is depicted on the Scatter symbol of the slot. This Wolf has a muggy smile and looks sneaky. Of course, he is waiting for a moment to catch the little pigs!
The Scatter symbol triggers free spins and awards the players a multiplier.
Slot Bonus Features
The Free spins, I suppose, is one of the most anticipated features for any player. In the Big Bad Wolf Christmas slot, 10 or more Wolf Scatters trigger 10 free spins. And as a result, you get an opportunity to win a big sum of money.
While Free spins round is active you are able to get 10 additional free spins in the case if you collect 3 more Scatter symbols. And also, the Blowing Down the House feature can bring extra free spins.
To be more precise, 3 Moon symbols as well as 6 Moon symbols awards a player 2 additional spins.
The separate bonus game is not featured in the slot. But don’t be disappointed, because some special features are presented instead of it.
The Big Bad Wolf Christmas slot has some entertaining special features like “pigs turn Wild” feature and Swooping reels feature. Let’s elaborate on all of them.
“Pigs turn Wild” feature implies that every second win turns a pig into a Wild symbol. So, 2nd win - Pig 1 turns Wild, 4th win - Pig 2 turns Wild, 6th win - Pig 3 turns Wild. To watch for this feature you are able to look at the small pictures of the piggies with round holes that become highlighted every time when winnings appear on the reel. To note, all winning rounds count.
Blowing Down the House feature is the second special feature of the slot. You need to collect the moon symbols on the last reel to assist the Wolf in his sneaky mission of blowing down the houses of the three little piggies.
How does this feature work? If 3 Moon symbols are collected, Wolf blows down the wood house, and a player is awarded 2 additional spins. And if 6 Moon symbols are collected, the Wolf blows down the brick house, and awards 2 additional spins and a multiplier of X2 on following wins.
Swooping reels is the last but not the least feature, it is triggered by all winning combinations during the gameplay. After that, all winning symbols in this game round will disappear, the empty space will be filled by new symbols that will fall down above. The new wins will be added to those that already exist. And the feature will last till there are no new win combinations anymore.
Speaking about multipliers, you are able to get it if 3+ Wolf Scatter symbols appear on the reels, they bring a bet x3 multiplier. And also, 6 Moon symbols award a player a multiplier of x2 on following wins that I’ve said already.
This slot is not progressive. Though, I think, it doesn’t matter due to the fact that it has a high RTP level, and it is actually made for fun and enjoying the holidays.
RTP and volatility
The slot has Return To Player of 97.34% which is a high-level coefficient and it is higher than the average one. What does it mean for a player? He/she probably won’t be disappointed with the results of the gameplay in the long run.
Speaking about volatility, it is medium to high. So that you will get big wins rather rare than often.
Hit frequency coefficient of the slot is about 31.4% (the same as the original one has).
Graphics and sound
I liked the graphics of this slot, it is well-made. And in general, it has top-notch quality, which is predictable because Quickspin is a big powerful provider that makes beautiful-looking slots using innovations and latest technologies.
The sound that is used in the slot is classic Christmas music that is supposed to raise your mood and fill you with pleasant feelings of anticipation of Christmas/New Year Eve.
So I liked the graphics of the Big Bad Wolf Christmas slot as well as its sound effects.
The Big Bad Wolf Christmas slot is a bright and full of different features slot that was created by a big corporation. But like many other slots, it has its own pros and cons.
Among the pros of the slot you will find:
very high RTP (97%+)
Among the cons of the slot you will find:
fairy low maximum possible win
multipliers are small
Summing up, the Big Bad Wolf Christmas slot is a cool game to enjoy the atmosphere of the main holiday of the year which is Christmas.
And considering the fact that the maximum possible win is quite low and RTP of the slot is high, I’d assume that it was created solely for getting fun before/during or after Christmas and New Year Eves.
The main disadvantages of the slot are a low maximum possible win and high volatility, but I think that you will anyway get only positive emotions while playing it.
So I would recommend it for the players who would like to enjoy the Christmas-related plot and recognizable music of the slot that is supposed to raise the mood of any player.
