Review of Big Bad Wolf

It will huff, and puff and blow your reels, the Big Bad Wolf slot game created by Quickspin features some fantastic Swooping reels, pig Wilds, and wolf Scatters which could blow down the house. Could there be a theme with where we are going here? Yes indeed, or at least so felt the judges of the prestigious EGR Operator Awards, which named the Big Bad Wolf game of the year in 2013.

The Swedish online casino game provider Quickspin has taken the famous tale of the three little piggies and developed it into a really charming, and exciting 3D slot which is full of innovation and joy. All the typical features that you look for in a slot are available in the Big Bad Wolf, but most of them have a little twist added so that you can find some novelty in the game.

It’s all about trying to get Wilds on the reels. The Wilds are actually the three little pigs on the reels, but even if it might sound extremely corny, give it a chance because it's really very entertaining!

How To Play

You can only use the coin value between £0.01 and £10 on this video slot, and the minimum and maximum bets range between £0.25 and £100 a spin. Select your coin value, and then it's all about spinning and chasing pay lines! If you enjoy the more fast paced games, then all you will need to do is turn this setting on by clicking on your mouse, and immediately each round will start spinning extra fast, quicker than you can say 'little pigs, little pigs'.

each round will start spinning extra fast, quicker than you can say 'little pigs, little pigs!

Even though the RTP of this slot is very high, as is its variance too, you don’t actually win very often. This is a shame because for the amount of effort placed into it, you would expect quite a few good wins. A good tip for all UK players on this game is to cut the stake, turn on the fast game option, and wait for the Bonus round. Be sure to hold on because when it happens, it REALLY happens and it will blow you away!

In our video review of Mr Green we gave Big Bad Wolf a couple spins - have a look below. Pressing play till take you directly to the part about the game.

Swooping Reels

Any winning combinations that you may come across will trigger the Swooping Reels feature (which we also call Free-Fall at many UK casinos). This means that all of the winning symbols disappear, and new symbols fall down to replace the old ones. As a result, each win will in fact give you new and better chances of winning.

Every other win will convert a pig into a Wild. Therefore, after the second win you get one of the three little pigs as a Wild. After the fourth win you get two of them, and after the sixth win you get all three Wilds. The round ends when no more pay lines remain and at the same time all pig wilds will also disappear.

The Symbols

There are many different symbols in the Big Bad Wolf slot game and of course the main characters which were featured in the well known tale are also featured here. For example the pigs, the wolf and a honeycomb. Winning symbols of the Big Bad Wolf are in descending order:

  • purple pig
  • blue pig
  • green pig
  • stuffed animals
  • A, K, Q, J, and 10

In addition, there is the beehive that is the Wild symbol of the game and the wolf acts as a Scatter.

Free Spins & Bonuses

At every win, you get an extra spin and your previous winning combination blows away from the reels making room for the new symbols. After two wins in a row, one of the three pigs becomes a Wild symbol increasing your chances of huge profits. After four wins, two of the pigs turn into Wild symbols and all three pigs become Wild symbols if you win six times in a row.

Should you get at least three wolf symbols (Scatter symbols) landed on the reels, you get 10 Free Spins. During these Free Spin rounds your mission is to collect as many moon symbols as possible to help the wolf blow down first the wooden house, and then the stone house. Big Bonuses are guaranteed on this round, and this is how you may understand why the game is so popular among the casino players in the UK!


Big Bad Wolf is a slot game that can be enjoyed by many different types of casino players. It has a very fun and child like theme, however the in-game features and characters make this game extremely enjoyable. We really liked the fact that Quickspin made use of this fairytale story in a way that we would all understand what it was, for example the fact that the background is a straw house just as the story referenced, along with the different characters of piglets. It’s a fun addition that they made sure that each piglet had their own personality and symbolized it by facial expressions along with props.
