Li’l Red Slot Review

Li’l Red is a WMS-powered slot game which uses the Colossal Reels engine (think Spartacus Gladiator of Rome. A land-based favourite, it has 2 reel sets (a 5×4 and 5×12 reel set) with 100 paylines in total. Playable from as little as 50p to £250 a spin, it’s based on the children’s fairytale story of Little Red Riding Hood.

Colossal Reels slots are some of the best produced by WMS and can really give you huge wins. Look out for wild symbols on the 5×4 (small) reel set as they transfer to the 5×12 (Colossal Reel) reel set. Then they expand to cover the whole reel on the Colossal Reel set to increase your chances of winning.

All the excitement is in the Free Games Bonus feature which you can trigger when you see 3 or more feature symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 of the 5×4 main reel set and Colossal Reel set (reels 1, 3 and 5 on both reels sets basically). 3 feature symbols gives you 8 free spins and 2x your stake as a cash prize, 4 feature symbols gives you 12 free spins and 5x your stake as a cash prize whilst 5 feature symbols will give you a generous 20 free spins with 20x your stake as a cash prize.

The good thing about this feature is that 3 or more scatters on either reel set will add additional free spins to your total. Also, look out for the wild symbol during the feature on the main reel set – you will see a wild reel nudge into place and then transfer over to the corresponding reel on the Colossal Reel set to give you a fully wild reel.

It’s quite similar to the Spartacus Gladiator of Rome slot but I found it to be a little lower variance meaning the balance between wins and win amounts was good and enjoyable. Saying that, you can win 1,000 times your stake on every spin/free spin.

This game is a well-loved slot in Las Vegas and I’m sure it will provide to be a big hit with online players too (this is my Colossal Reels slot of choice by the way). I would also recommend you try Forbidden Dragons (also by WMS) which uses the Colossal Reels game engine and is the same (just a different theme).
