Quickspin, the Sweden-based subsidiary of Playtech, has unveiled the latest addition to their lineup of popular slot games, the Big Bad Wolf: Pigs of Steel. This new release is a sequel to the well-received Big Bad Wolf, Big Bad Wolf Megaways, and Big Bad Wolf Live games. Inspired by the classic fairy tale “The Three Little Pigs,” the game invites players to once again join the adventure of the cute piglets as they try to outsmart the relentless wolf.
The visual appeal of the game is reminiscent of a fairy tale, drawing players into a world of fantasy and adventure. The familiar farm setting is surrounded by lush greenery, setting the stage for the showdown between the wolf and the piglets. However, in this iteration, the piglets are armed with steel, making them more prepared to fend off the wolf’s attacks. The outcome of their struggle with the wolf is in the hands of the players.
Featuring a 5×3 layout, the game introduces a unique Tumble feature that causes winning symbols to disappear from the reels, allowing new ones to fall into place and create fresh winning combinations. With four non-identical Return to Player (RTP) percentages ranging from 87 to 96, the game is designed to cater to a wide audience and ensure healthy margins in regulated markets. It also boasts high volatility and offers players the chance to win up to 18,173 times their bet.
One of the standout features of the game is the Pigs Turn Wild mechanic, which transforms red, green, and blue piglet symbols into Wilds, providing players with additional opportunities to win. Additionally, the Pigs of Steel feature ensures that the piglets are fortified and upgraded after the Tumble feature, offering them increased protection from the wolf.
To add more excitement to the gameplay, the game includes three bonus games called Bonus Game, Super Bonus Game, and Ultra Bonus Game, each with unique special features. These bonus games can be triggered by landing Wolf Bonus Symbols and offer the potential to activate multipliers, allowing players to earn up to 18,000 times their wager.
Expressing his satisfaction with the new release, Clint Andersson, the Producer at Quickspin, stated, “We took elements of the first game we knew fans loved the most and improved them to suit modern players. There is more emphasis on the Piggies this time round, they know the Big Bad Wolf is about to attack and have prepared accordingly by adding fortifications to keep their houses safe and stay on the reels longer.”
Overall, Big Bad Wolf: Pigs of Steel offers a captivating and rewarding gaming experience, blending classic fairy tale elements with innovative features to entertain and engage players.
