The classic tale of Little Red Riding Hood gets a 3D re-telling in Little Red, a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot from Leander Games. It comes with a trio of features include pick me and free spins bonus rounds. Try and get to Granny’s house from between 25p and £125 per spin.
The reels include the central characters from the famous fairy tale including Granny, the big bad wolf and Red Riding Hood herself. They’re the biggest payers, offering 1,500, 2,000 and 2,500 coins for a 5 symbol combination. Look out too for axes, butterflies, beds, picnic baskets, pies, false teeth and flowers.
The open picnic basket is the wild, offering 7,500 times your line bet if you find five in a payline. The imagery is 3D style and impressively done, set against a rural, riverside backdrop.
You’ll notice an animated Little Red underneath the reels with 5 empty spaces in front of her – these are the keys to triggering the To Granny’s feature. Whenever a log symbol appears on the reel to the right of where Little Red is standing, it will drop, allowing her to get 1 step closer to the other bank of the river.
If she gets to the other side, you’ll trigger the Into The Woods feature – it’s a variation on a pick me round where you must choose the correct patch to reach Granny’s house. Correct picks will net you cash prizes – choose the wolf and the feature will end. Get all the way to Granny’s house and you’ll be awarded the Free Spins feature.
The 10 free spins can also be triggered by finding the bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5. There are also multipliers on offer during the feature, up to 7x, via the randomly falling elements. They’ll be applied to the current and remaining spins, unless you find a bigger multiplier later in the round.
There’s plenty to enjoy in Little Red – it looks lovely and plays out to a suitably soothing soundtrack. There are a decent range of features too. Don’t expect them to hit too often though as the variance here is on the high side of medium. There’ll be plenty of lean spells when little appears to be happening but the action can certainly rev up on the relatively rare occasions when the features do hit.
The theme may be a gentle one but Little Red is a volatile little number – the rewards can be impressive but patience and a decent bankroll may be required if you’re hoping to win big. If you like the theme, WMS offer Li’l Red Riches and Quickspin offer Big Bad Wolf.
