Theme and basic info
The Red Cap slot is a new product of the Endorphina provider that has been developing the games since 2012 and being considered as a reliable producer and partner on the gambling market. As for the slot characteristics, it has a good quality, a medium RTP level, an interesting special feature that is called “Gamble” and appropriate maximum possible win which equals 3,000x the stake.
The slot was released in August 2020 which means that it is a recently-made game that was created involving the latest technologies. To be honest, it is not the best game I’ve ever seen, but it is well-made and supposed to bring positive emotions.
As to whether the theme of the Red Cap slot, it tells us the story that was derived from the “Little Red Riding Hood” fairy tale. So, I think, all of you know the plot of the story very well. The only difference between the tale and the slot’s plot is the girl in the slot doesn’t look like a little granddaughter anymore, moreover, she looks very pretty.
The main heroes of the story are a girl called Little Red Riding Hood or just Red Cap in our case, a Big Bad Wolf who wants to eat a girl, her grandma and the food that girl carries into a basket, a woodcutter and the girl’s grandmother who is sick and waits for her granddaughter who has to bring some food for her to eat.
I, actually, love to play in the games that are based on the tale or film scenario. It makes the general perception of the gameplay more habitual and even enjoyable.
It is a 5-reel and 3-row slot which has 20 paylines. These paylines pay from the left to the right side, as in the average slot.
The betting mechanics consist of some adjustable elements, so you are able to set the number of paylines from 1 to 20. The coin value can be equal from 0.01 to 1, and the bet size ranges from 0.01 euro (minimum bet) to 200 euro (maximum bet). Though, remember that the bet option will vary depending on a chosen casino.
Speaking about the overall number of symbols that are offered in the Red Cap slot, there are 12 symbols in total. Among them, you will find a Bonus symbol that looks like a basket with cakes, a Wild symbol with a girl with a red cap, some symbols with fairy tale heroes described above and lower-paying royal card symbols like Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10.
The highest paying symbol is Wild. And the lowest symbols are Jack and 10, that pay only 500 euro for all 5 collected symbols, in the case if the bet is set to 100 euro.
The highest win per one paying line is 5,000 euro if the bet is 100 euro (x50), which is quite a good reward for a standard slot.
The Wild symbol as I’ve already mentioned, looks like a grown-up girl with a red cap. The Wild substitutes for all symbols, except Scatter. It is said in the rules that the Wild symbol expands over all positions on the reel and this expanding is triggered only in the case if a win can be gained.
The Scatter symbol (called Bonus Symbol in this slot) has a picture of the cakes into a basket on it and gives an opportunity to win Free spins round. Note that Free games are played with the same bets as the initial game, and the additional free spins can be won again during the feature.
Slot bonus features
Free games (spins) are triggered by 3 or more Bonus symbols (Scatters). The extra spins can be added to the existing ones if you are lucky enough to win them one more time while the feature is active.
The bonus game is not offered in the slot.
To begin with, Red Cap is a pretty simple slot regarding its general configuration, it doesn’t have lots of intricate features, but it has a quite cool special feature called Risk Game (Gamble) which allows players to double their winnings up to 10 times.
All it takes is to choose one card out of the four cards that lay on the table face down. The goal of this game is to beat the dealer’s card (your card should be higher than the dealer's card). If the dealer's card beats your card, so the risk game ends.
As it is claimed in the game’s rules, the result of the game is random, and all closed cards can be higher or lower than the dealer’s card. The probability of a dealt card is not equally distributed.
To note, the Joker beats all cards, and if you and the dealer have cards with the same value, it means a draw: you save your winnings, but they will not be doubled. After that, the other attempt will be offered for you. If you don’t want to risk, press the button that says “take win” and collect your current winnings.
The RTP (Return to player) of this gamble game equals 84%, but as I’ve mentioned, it is not distributed equally and, depending on the dealer’s card, can be:
2 (the dealer’s card) - 162%,
3 - 121%,
4 - 113%,
5 - 101%,
and Q - 66%, K - 64%, A - 42%.
The other outcomes you can check in the rules of the slot that you can find into the “i” tab that is located right on the right top part of the screen.
Regarding the Free spins Multiplier, it is x3 which actually means that the winning that is gained while the feature is active will be multiplied 3 times.
There is no progressive jackpot in the Red Cap slot. Though, you will get up to 3,000x your stake which is quite a satisfying result.
RTP and volatility
The Return to Players (RTP) level in this slot equals 96%, and despite the fact it barely reaches the medium level in comparison to an average RTP level on the market, it can be estimated as an appropriate coefficient for getting a good gameplay experience.
Graphics and sound
The graphics look good. And I was enjoying the gameplay when I tried it. I liked the chosen palette of colors and well-performed animation. But, honestly, there are lots of slots I played in that impressed me way more than this slot.
The game doesn't have an intro, though on the YouTube channel of the Endorphina provider you will find a cool inspiring introductory video of the slot.
The list of pros of the slot includes:
medium RTP level (it is only 96%, but it can be considered appropriate)
good free spins multiplier (x3)
html5 is supported
The list of cons of the slot includes:
There are no volatility and hit frequency data
I’d say, low maximum winnings (there are no super jackpot or progressive free spins multiplier included)
quite an ordinary theme that is used often by many providers
In conclusion, I would say that it is a really good slot with pretty satisfying conditions of the gameplay that offers an opportunity to relax and enjoy the fairy tale plot and well-performed graphics and sound effects.
So, in my opinion, it can be recommended to those players who like such slot’s themes and who want to find a good-implemented slot that was made by a reliable provider. And if you are waiting for the mind-blowing bonus features and super big wins, it is better for you to try to find some other slot.
