big-bad-wolf-christmas-special-slot-base-game

Like the original Big Bad Wolf slot, the story focuses on the 3 little pigs fairytale. With a festive spin, the evil wolf is perched to the side of the reels sporting a Santa hat and waistcoat. In the background, there’s a snowy scene as well as trees wrapped in Christmas lights.

The symbols on the reels include low value A, K, Q, J and 10 royals. The more rewarding symbols are represented by a Santa hat wearing teddy bear and the 3 little pigs. The highest value pig pays 1, 6 or 12 x stake for 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

Oddly, a snow-topped beehive is the wild symbol are replaces all symbols bar the moon symbol and wolf scatter. It’s also the most rewarding symbol giving you 0.2, 2, 10 or 40 x stake for 2, 3, 4 or 5 in combination.

The Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special slot can be played on desktop, tablet and mobile devices. The 5x3 reel layout works rather well on smartphones.

Bonus Features in Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special

The Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special slot has 4 bonus features. The swooping reels give you continuous wins and add up to 3 extra wilds to the reels. In the free spins, moon symbols add a multiplier. There’s also more free spins to be won.

Swooping Reels feature

When you get a winning combination of any symbol(s), the Swooping Reels feature comes into play. The winning symbols are blown away and new symbols occupy the vacated spaces.

Like avalanche reels, the symbols continue to disappear if they land you a winning combination. This can lead to plenty of successive wins.

Pigs Turn Wild feature

On each 2nd successive win, you will activate the Pigs Turn Wild feature. 1 of the 3 pig symbols then transforms into a wild becoming a pig wild. If you landed 6 continuous wins, all 3 pigs would act as wild symbols:

  • 2 successive/swooping wins = 1 pig turns wild
  • 4 successive/swooping wins = 2 pigs turn wild
  • 6 successive/swooping wins = 3 pigs turn wild

There’s a meter above the reels to help you see your progress which helps.

Free Spins feature

Keep an eye out for the wolf symbol as this is the scatter. 3 or more wolf scatters landing in any position triggers the Free Spins feature. Your reward will be a 3 x stake payout and 10 free spins.

If you see 3 or more wolf scatters landing simultaneously on a free spin, you will retrigger the feature with another 10 free spins added to your tally. You’ll also win 3 x your total stake. More importantly, successive wins will activate the Pigs Turn Wild feature which can see up to 3 pig wilds added to the reels.

Blowing Down the House feature

Next you have the Blowing Down The House feature. Look out for moon symbols which only land on reel 5. When you land 3 or more, you will get extra free spins and even a multiplier:

  • 3 moon symbols: wooden house is blown down and 2 more free spins are added
  • 6 moon symbols: brick house is blown down and 2 more free spins are added. Furthermore, a 2x multiplier is added.

Collecting 6 moon symbols will give you a further 4 free spins taking your potential total to 24 free spins. Also, the doubling multiplier applies to all remaining free spins.

Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special Review Summary – entertaining festive action

The Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special slot is identical to the Big Bad Wolf game in terms of gameplay. There’s plenty of variety on the features front but it’s the 97.34% RTP which makes it stand out.

The key to winning big is to collect 6 moons in the free spins as this brings the 2x multiplier into play. Other than that, it’s a pretty ordinary slot game with nothing much else worth ranting about.

Other Christmas themed games like the Rudolph Gone Wild slot by NextGen Gaming or iSoftBet’s The Nutcracker offer bigger wins and better gameplay.
