The Big Bad Wolf
The Big Bad Wolf
For a slot that brings the classic fable of the three little pigs to life in incredible detail, look no further than The Big Bad Wolf – a five-reel, 25-payline title from Virtue Fusion that features Swooping Reels. Boasting a maximum regular jackpot of 1,000x players’ bet per line, The Big Bad Wolf also benefits from additional symbols becoming wild after every two consecutive wins. Naturally this means that winning sequences that are created by the Swooping Reels – which see all icons that feature in a valid payline disappear to be replaced with new symbols – can be hugely profitable, and there’s also a free spins feature that can award up to 14 free spins with a 2x prize multiplier.
As the name would suggest, The Big Bad Wolf is based on the children’s tale of three little pigs constructing houses to keep the titular predator at bay. Featuring beautiful cartoon graphics, the game takes place in a colourful outdoor setting with the reels themselves appearing on the side of a straw house. The symbols used in the game include three pigs and their tools, a doll, a beehive and the Big Bad Wolf, who is used to trigger the bonus feature. A range of ambient sound effects play throughout the base game, but the wolf’s howl and the sound of huffing and puffing also come into play during the bonus round, where the object of the game is to demolish the three pig’s houses.
The Big Bad Wolf is a slot that’s all about collecting. In the base game, this manifests itself in the form of additional pig symbols becoming wild for every two consecutive wins, meaning up to three icons can become wild on top of the regular wild symbol if a lengthy winning sequence is collected. In the free spins feature, however, it is full moon symbols that need to be collected, as these can be used to award extra free spins and ultimately a 2x prize multiplier. With free spins initially triggered by landing three or more Big Bad Wolf symbols, players will start off with 10 free spins but will blow down a house whenever they collect three full moons. The first house will award an extra two spins, while the second will do so again and also double the value of any wins for the rest of the feature.
An incredibly simple title to play, The Big Bad Wolf merely requires players to choose a bet amount from the pop-up menu situated below its reels. Given the game’s 25 paylines are fixed, only the total bet amount is displayed on this menu, with stakes ranging from £0.25 to £125.00 providing plenty of scope for players using all bankrolls. An autoplay button can also be used to queue up your desired number of games, while clicking fast play will ensure you get through more spins per minute.
Beautifully designed and incredibly well-executed, it’s little wonder that The Big Bad Wolf is one of the most popular titles in the Virtue Fusion catalogue. The game’s progressively more rewarding wilds and collectable full moon symbols mean it really is capable of providing a significant boost to your bankroll on a good run, while the Swooping Reels can award huge payouts on any given spin.
