Big Bad Wolf Megaways Overview
Unfortunately for the three little piggies, the big bad wolf is back in town in this new edition of one of Quickspin's most popular free slots online. Although the pigs might not welcome the wolf's return, players certainly will as the game comes with a new Megaways mechanic and an exciting assortment of bonus features. And if the fabulous graphics, fun theme and great features weren't enough to entice you in, this time, Big Bad Wolf Megaways comes with a fantastic top prize of 30,540x your bet. Indeed, Quickspin has pulled out all the stops to bring the house down with this new release.
The bonus content you are probably keen to find out includes a cascade feature. In addition, Big Bad Wolf Megaways comes with a Piggy Wilds feature, which transforms piggy symbols into wilds to help you form more combinations. However, the most significant feature in this game is the Blowing Down the House feature, which is effectively this slot's free spins feature. This bonus sees players win free spins and multipliers, creating exciting and lucrative wins across the board. Finally, this game also has a bonus buy feature. All features will be explained in more detail later on in the review.
Theme and Symbols
As is instantly discernible from the opening screen, the theme for this game is the children's story of the big bad wolf and the three little pigs. As any British child will know, this is one of the most widely read fairy tales and dates back as far as the 1800s'. The story is about three pigs who build their houses from different materials and the big bad wolf trying to blow the houses down. The story is supposed to teach children about the value of hard work and dedication, as the pig that builds its house from bricks does not have its place blown down. This version is a little more modernised, with the wolf wearing clothes and the pigs depicted as humble farmers and carpenters.
The background for this game is a moonlit night on a farm in the countryside. The night sky is illuminated by a bright moon located at the top left-hand side of the screen. The board is cleverly designed to look like one of the houses in the fable. To the left of the reels is the big bad wolf himself, whose crazy eyes and arrogant posture give you the right feeling of a cartoonish threat. The rest of the background has been created to set this scene in the rolling hills in the English countryside.
The board, as mentioned, has been cleverly created to look as though it is part of the wooden house from the book. It even has double levels, making room for the special reel that sits on top of the regular reels.
The symbols for this game are split into low-value, high value and special symbols. The low-value symbols are the J, Q, K and A in playing card royals, designed to look like they are made from different wood shades. On the other hand, the high-value symbols comprise the tools and characters that you see across the reels. These start with the garden fork, worth 1x the stake for the top combination. Next up from that is the axe, followed by the spade. These are then joined by the little pigs. The bricklaying pig is the most valuable of these, worth 6x the stake for the top combo. However, the most valuable symbol is the wolf, worth 50x the stake for the maximum combo. Finally, the special symbols are the garden tools wild, the bonus moon scatters, and the various piggy wilds.
Big Bad Wolf Megaways is played on a 6-reel, Megaways mechanic board, which means that a different number of symbols can fall onto each reel with every spin. The maximum number of pay lines available in this game is 117,649. To create winners, players must match 3 or more symbols in combination from left to right on the reels.
The betting range for Big Bad Wolf Megaways is 20p to as much as £100per spin. To change your betting level per spin, use the bet adjuster tool located at the bottom of the playing window.
Further information regarding the slot, including a display of the paytable, can be accessed by clicking on the settings menu. The spin button is located to the bottom right of the reels. You can set up auto spins in the game's menu.
The volatility for this game is rated at the very high end of the spectrum. The highest return to player percentage for Big Bad Wolf Megaways is 96.05% (about average). The biggest payout that players can win on one spin is 30,540x their stake.
The first feature in this game is the tumbling reels feature. This bonus is triggered every time that there is a winner found on the board. A set of new symbols replaces the successful symbols. A new payout consideration will take place after. Tumbles continue until the new set of symbols does not form a win.
The second feature is the Piggy Wilds feature. If you get a few consecutive tumbles, some piggy symbols will start transforming into wild symbols. Getting 2 consecutive tumbles earns you 1 piggy wild, 4 equals 2, and 6 equals 3. The special wilds can only land on reels 2,3, 4 and 5. Following an unsuccessful tumble, all piggy wilds revert to their previous form. The meters above the reels will keep track of the number of wilds active for you.
Next is the Blowing Down the House feature. To trigger this bonus, players must land 3 or more of the moon scatters anywhere on the reels simultaneously. Doing so grants you 11 free spins with a 1x multiplier starter. For every successful tumble scored in the free spins round, the attached multiplier will grow by 1x. However, unlike in the base game, the multiplier does not reset with an unsuccessful tumble.
Landing additional scatters from within this bonus round rewards you with more free spins and an increase to your multiplier. The scatter bonuses are explained below:
3 Moon scatters = +3 free spins & +5 multiplier increase
6 Moon scatters = +3 free spins & +10 multiplier increase
7+ Moon scatters = +1 free spin for each scatter
Piggy wilds are also active in the free spins round.
Finally, this game also has a bonus buy feature, which grants you instant access to the free spins round for a cost of 90x your stake. However, this feature is not available in the UK.
A classic fable and slot reinvented with great graphics and fun features – Big Bad Wolf Megaways is a lot of fun and a potentially lucrative game. The Megaways mechanic is always useful, yet the free spins round really spices this game up, considering piggy wilds and extras are added in. Let's not forget that massive 30,540x top prize. Quickspin has done an excellent job with this game's update.
