It's Time to Blow the House Down Again "Megaways Style" in the Big Bad Wolf Megaways Slot!
Sharpen your knives in anticipation for this juicy release as possibly the most iconic slot release from Quickspin, Big Bag Wolf is back, and this time comes with Megaways and a big injection of volatility!
Mr Green Casino and loads of our other recommended online casinos will be adding the new Big Bad Wolf Megaways slot to their casinos on release day, the 14th of September, 2021.
It's been several years since the original Big Bag Wolf release (2015 ish). Much has changed in the online slot space, with the massive adoption of Megaways Slots and a general shift towards much more high variance slots with huge winning potential.
In previous Quickspin reviews, we have been quite disappointed with the overall volatility of their slots. Still, in recent times with releases such as Cabin Crashers and the forthcoming Wild Harlequin, there has been a noticeable shift to providing much more volatile releases.
The good news here is that the Big Bad Wolf Megaways release has also been given a fresh boost in volatility from the introduction of Megaways, tumbling reels and rising multipliers. With a theoretical max win so far of 30,540 x bet being a possibility!
Quickspin has also done an amazing job at retaining all of the small nuances to the original slots gameplay that made it a top-rated and engaging slot to play, and dare we say, improved on them too!
Make no mistake. This isn't a plain old rehashed Megways slot that adopts the core vanilla gameplay. Some subtle additions to the gameplay definitely make this slot worth seeking out, and let us not forget just how stunning this release looks too!
If you were a fan of the original Big Bad Wolf but always wanted higher variance, then this will be the perfect release for you!
Big Bad Wolf Megaways - Base Gameplay
The Big Bad Wolf Megaways slot base game takes place on a 6 reels Megaways layout with a horizontal reel providing an additional 4 symbols above the regular reels that can create additional winning combinations. The theme is based on the classic story of the wolf and the 3 Little Pigs just as you would anticipate.
There are a mix of high and low paying symbols, a Full Moon Scatter symbol, and regular Wilds spread across the reels, along with a nice mechanic that is triggered by successive wins that convert the high paying pig symbols into Piggy Wilds.
During gameplay, after 2, 4, and 6 successive tumble wins in either the base game or even the bonus round, the first, second, and the third Piggy symbol will turn into Piggy Wilds.
However, The Pig Symbols will only convert into Wilds on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5, highlighted nicely by a golden bar when this feature activates.
Thankfully the entire mechanic is tracked nicely in a Golden collection meter, showing how many successive wins you have had and which of the pig symbols will be acting as a wild!
