What we think about the Big Bad Wolf slot?

“After playing this game, I totally get why it’s an award-winning slot.”

Is the Big Bad Wolf slot for you?

When it comes to popular slots online, Big Bad Wolf is near the top of the list. This brilliant title from Quickspin has 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 paylines. It’s themed after the Three Little Pigs fairytale and is one of the game provider’s first releases (launching back in 2013). Right from the start it’s been a successful title, winning the “Game of the Year” award from the prestigious EGR Operator awards. To this day, it remains a successful game and fan favourite in the industry.

True to the story on which it is based, the Big Bad Wolf online slot follows three little pigs in their efforts to prevent the big bad wolf from huffing, puffing, and blowing down their houses. Complementing the theme is its cute storybook-style graphics, great sound effects and fun features. The most notable of these features include Swooping Reels (symbols part of winning combos disappear and are replaced by new ones), Pigs Turn Wild, Free Spins, and Blowing Down the House Free Spins – more on these later.

You can play the Big Bad Wolf slot in Canada at PlayOJO casino online for $0.25 up to $100. The max win for this game is 1,225x the stake per spin and the probability of wining 100x bet is 1 in 1043. As for volatility, the Big Bad Wolf game is on the high side. That’s worth keeping in mind if you’re not a big risktaker like me (I stuck to $1 a spin) or you’ve got a small bankroll and want to make it last as long as possible.

Regardless of your slots-playing preferences, you’re likely to find the Big Bad Wolf slot enjoyable. In true Quickspin fashion, it’s been cleverly designed to appeal to all types of players. If one aspect of this game isn’t your favourite, chances are another one will be.

Fun fact! In addition to being an award-winning game, did you know that Big Bad Wolf is the first in a series of Big Bad Wolf slots (e.g., Big Bad Wolf Megaways, Big Bad Wolf Pigs of Steel, etc.) and you can find all of them at PlayOJO? Even cooler, there’s also a live game - Big Bad Wolf Live - that you can enjoy in our premium live online casino.

Game features

Swooping Reels

Although not the only one to have it, the Big Bad Wolf slot machine is widely known for this mechanic. The Swooping Reels feature is similar to the Avalanche Reels in NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest and the Tumble Feature in many of Pragmatic Play’s Megaways slots, such as Power of Thor Megaways.

With Swooping Reels, after every winning combination, all winning symbols in the combo disappear and the empty spaces they leave behind are filled by symbols falling from above. This swooping continues until no more winning combos result. The gist of this feature is that it gives you the chance to trigger additional wins from only a single spin.

Pigs Turn Wild

An additional fantastic aspect about the Swooping Reels is that it’s linked to another of the Big Bad Wolf slot’s features – Pigs Turn Wild. Every second swooping win turns one of the pig symbols into a Wild symbol. If you manage to get 6 swooping spins in a row, all 3 pigs will turn wild.

It’s easy to keep track of how many pigs are Wild by watching the meter at the top of the game screen. Though I personally never managed to turn all 3 pigs wild, I did manage to get 2. This is a good game perk and one of my personal Quickspin slots features favourites.

Free Spins

Big Bad Wolf Free Spins are triggered by landing a minimum of 3 scatters (Wolf symbol) anywhere on the reels. Once activated, you’re awarded 10 free spins.

During the free spins round, if you land 3 or more Wolf scatters, you’ll get an extra 10 free spins. Plus, landing 3 or more scatters will also pay 3x your total bet. Also, like in the base game, Swooping Reels and Pigs Turn Wild are still in play, giving you more winning opportunities.

Blowing Down the House

What makes the free spins feature of the Quickspin Big Bad Wolf slot truly unique however, is the Blowing Down the House bonus. To trigger this gem (which I did and it’s a lot of fun!), you’ll need to land moon symbols on the reels. These symbols only appear on reel 5 and the more moons you get, the more piggy houses you can huff and puff and blow down.

For instance, 3 moon symbols will let you blow down the wooden house and will score you 2 extra free spins. Collecting 6 moon symbols will give you enough power to blow down the brick house and get 2 extra free spins with a 2x multiplier. If you get this 2x multiplier, it will remain active for all remaining free spins in the round.

Alice in Wildland

If you like storybook-themed online slots, another fun one to give a spin is Games Global’s Alice in Wildland slot. Like Big Bad Wolf, this game has a fun Wild feature, except it stars the Cheshire Cat and is a Copycat Wild where one Wild stack is copied to another reel.

Wolf Gold

If slots themed after wolves is more your thing, Wolf Gold is an interesting one from Pragmatic Play. This online slot takes you into the wilderness where there are howling wolves, Free Spins, Money Re-Spin Bonus and 5,000x the bet max win potential.

The theme is perfectly executed throughout the gameplay from the Pigs Turn Wild to the Blowing Down the House features. From its story and its bonus perks to its wide bet range and volatility, Big Bad Wolf offers something for every player.
