Big Bad Wolf: Christmas Special Slot (Quickspin)
Big Bad Wolf: Christmas Special is a Quickspin slot that the developer has created for the 2020 winter holiday season.
The slot has a Christmas theme, and it’s a 2nd version from the original Big Bad Wolf, a machine that Quickspin released back in 2013.
Here is a review of Big Bad Wolf: Christmas Special:
For this slot, Quickspin has gone with a 5-reel setup, with up to 25 fixed pay lines. For the features, I came across the Swooping Reels mechanics, wilds, scatters, and some free spins.
Betting and Prizes
Quickspin is known for offering both casual players and high rollers an equal opportunity when it comes to placing bets. For this title, you will get to choose values of between $0.25 and $125 per spin.
The highest possible payout is 1,225x, and the developer has given it a decent RTP of 97.34%.
Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special Slot Features
The Swooping Reels mechanic that Quickspin has used here is similar to Cascading Reels, or the Rolling Reels.
It works just like these two mechanisms whereby, the winning symbols are removed, and they are replaced with a new wave of symbols. This boosts the chances of landing additional wins.
Another feature here is the Pigs Turn Wild. It works better when combined with another feature known as Swooping Reels. This way, there is a huge potential to get extra winning spins.
For every two Swoops, a Pig will be transformed into a Wild. For the three Pigs to be transformed into extra wilds, you will require 6 consecutive Swoops.
Free Spins are my favourite part of any slot machine, and I’m happy that Quickspin has included them on this title.
With at least 3 scatters on sight, you will be able to trigger up to10 free spins, in addition to a bonus that goes by the name, Blowing Down the House.
The Blowing Down the House feature will deliver an interesting mechanic where we see a wolf going after the three available pigs. The aim is to blow away their houses, and this is the same concept in the original story, where Quickspin has borrowed from.
As you advance in the slot you will come across the Moon icons (they normally appear) on the 5th reel. You can collect these icons as they are beneficial in boosting the multiplier which will in return give you more free rounds.
Theme and Design
The slot uses a Christmas theme, and the focus is on a fairytale story that involves 3 little pigs.
In the background, you will see a beautiful snowy scene, with some trees that have been decorated with Christmas lights.
Among the symbols on the reels, you will get the low-value Royals, icons of Santa hat, plus 3 little pigs.
Quickspin has been quite patient before creating a clone of this slot that they first created in 2013.
I love pretty much everything about the new version, and especially the beautiful graphics that have gone into giving it a great Christmas theme.
Additionally, Big Bad Wolf Christmas is suitable to all levels of players, especially due to the betting range that Quickspin has given it.
