The Big Bad Wolf is an outstanding IGT video slot machine that is themed around one of the most popular children's stories. It is the story of the Big Bad Wolf, the princess and the good piglets. The amazing theme provides players with a nostalgic experience as they will quickly remember the story through the game’s vivid visuals and sound effects. It is also a rewarding experience as the game is packed with plenty of rewarding features and special symbols that reward players greatly.
This game has five tumbling reels. This means that the symbols do not spin like most slot machines but they tumble from above on top of each other in order to form the 5 reels and the 3 rows of symbols. Across these reels and rows, players will find a total of 25 paylines that they can place their stakes on. Players can place these stakes at the bottom by choosing the paylines they want to activate, the betting level and the value of the coins used.
The Tumbling Reels is not only a visually satisfying feature as it can affect the game play and it is much more rewarding than the usual “spinning” format. This is because in the tumbling reels, whenever a winning combo is formed on an activated line, the matching symbols forming the winning combo will vanish and fly away and the symbols on top of them will take their place with new symbols tumbling from upstairs in order to fill in the gaps. This gives players yet another chance to create a combo that pays and claim a payout without having to place new bets. If the players succeed in creating another combo, this will happen again and so on.
The beehive is the regular wild symbol, so it does simply what a wild icon is made for, it replaces any other symbols on a payline in order to form the best possible combo for players. There is also a unique feature in which wins are counted and with every other win, one of the pigs will turn into a wild symbol. All wins are counted in this feature. Therefore, the 2nd win will turn Pig 1 wild, the 4th win will turn Pig 2 wild and the 6th win will turn Pig 3 wild.
The game’s free spins bonus is activated when players get 3+ Big Bad wolf symbols on the reels of the game. Players will then earn 10 free spins. The best part about this is the fact that they can earn additional free spins during the free spin round if they get more Big Bad wolf symbols. There is also the Blowing Down the House feature. In this feature, players will help the wolf tear down the pig houses. In order to do that, they will have to get 3 moon symbols on the reels of the game, players will get 2 spins and the house will be blown down. If players get 6 moon symbols, they will earn 2 additional spins with a 2x multiplier.
