Big Bad Wolf: Pigs of Steel Slot Overview

Big Bad Wolf: Pigs of Steel is a new casino slot from Quickspin where you can enjoy a new gaming experience with the three little pigs and the big bad wolf. Since the first release back in 2013, Big Bad Wolf, this wolf has constantly disturbed the peace of the little pigs by huffing and puffing. Since then, we have been able to take part in sequels within this Big Bad Wolf series, such as Big Bad Wolf Megaways. Yes, the dedication to participate in a majestic dinner is truly impressive, where the wolf, now more than 10 years later, still struggles to get hold of these juicy pigs. All those years of constantly demolishing houses, however, have prepared them; in this edition, we can see that they have started using steel in the construction. Let's find out the game's stats and how the pigs defend themselves against the wolf this time.

Big Bad Wolf: Pigs of Steel Slot Information

The game's design is themed based on the fable "The Three Little Pigs" which dates back to the 1840s, but it is believed to be much older than that. Within it, the reader learns about a wolf frantically fighting to blow down a house that three little pigs have built out of bricks. As previous houses built from straws and sticks were easy to blow down, the wolf has difficulty realizing the complexity of blowing down this brick house and knowing his limits, which is the story's moral. In the background of the reels, you can see a beautiful little village out in the countryside surrounded by lush nature. During the spins, uplifting and adventurous tunes are played, adding a great layer to the visit in this slot. You can play this slot on all devices - notepads, desktops, and mobiles. You create a winning combination by landing 3 or more of the same symbol type on adjacent reels starting on the leftmost reel, activating the Tumbling Reels feature.

The lower-paying symbols consist of 10, J, Q, K, and A. Creating a win with 5 of the same symbol type gives between 1X to 2X the bet. The medium-paying symbols are an axe and a brick trowel. If you create a win with 5 of the same symbol type, it gives 5X the bet. The highest-paying symbols are the three little pigs in the colors blue, green, and red. Creating a win with 5 of the same symbol type gives between 15X and 25X the bet. The toolbox with golden tools is the game's wild symbol, where 3, 4, or 5 give 3X, 15X, and 40X the bet, respectively, and during the spins, the pigs can also turn into wilds. The big bad wolf is the scatter symbol, and the moon bonus symbol is, well, a full moon. It is now time to find out what the features do.

Bonus game

Tumbling Reels

When you create a win, the Tumbling Reels feature is activated. Winning symbols are removed from the reels, and new symbols fall down to cover the empty positions. This continues as long as new wins are created, and the total win will be paid out when no more wins are created.

Wild Symbol

The game's Wild Symbol helps enable more winning combinations by substituting for other paying symbols, except for the scatter and moon bonus symbols.

Piggy Wild

The paying pig symbols will gradually turn into wild piggy symbols by creating tumbles. By having 2, 4, and 6 consecutive tumbles, the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd piggy will turn into piggy wilds. These piggy wilds have the same substituting properties as the normal wild symbol. When no more wins are created, the piggy wilds are reset to normal piggy symbols again.

Pigs of Steel

When tumbles remove 3 or 6 piggy symbols, all piggy symbols will be protected once and twice, respectively. This results in that instead of these piggy symbols being removed by tumbles, they will lose a level of protection instead. Once they have lost all levels of protection, they are no longer protected and can be removed.

The Bonus Games feature is activated if you land 3 or more scatter symbols. Depending on whether you landed 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols, the Bonus Game, Super Bonus Game, and Ultra Bonus Game are activated, respectively. No scatter symbol can land during the bonus games, but the moon bonus symbols can do so instead.

You receive 10 free spins and start with a 1X win multiplier that will be applied to any winnings created. During the free spins, moon bonus symbols can land, which will be collected, and by collecting 3 and 6 of them, you get 2 extra free spins and a doubling of the current multiplier that occurs both times. The Piggy Wild and Pigs of Steel meters will be reset between each spin performed.

Super Bonus Game

You receive 10 free spins and start with a 2X win multiplier that will be applied to any winnings created. During the free spins, moon bonus symbols can land, which will be collected, and by collecting 3 and 6 of them, you get 2 extra free spins and a doubling of the current multiplier that occurs both times. The Pigs of Steel meter will not reset between each spin performed, but the Piggy Wild will.

Ultra Bonus Game

You receive 10 free spins and start with a 3X win multiplier that will be applied to any winnings created. During the free spins, moon bonus symbols can land, which will be collected, and by collecting 3 and 6 of them, you get 2 extra free spins and a doubling of the current multiplier that occurs both times. The Pigs of Steel and Piggy Wild meters will not reset during the spins.

Big Bad Wolf: Pigs of Steel Slot Conclusion

We participate in a dear reunion in this slot, with the three little pigs and the big bad wolf giving the player a warm welcome. It's a harmonious countryside location that the slot is set in, with enchanting melodies weaving through the gameplay and evoking a symphony of emotions. Yes, as I've pointed out in many other reviews, such as Money Train 4, this slot also shows the enhancing effects of good tunes and graphics to the overall feel of the gaming experience. Much is the same in this slot compared to previous versions, where winning symbols activate the Tumbling reels and can turn the pigs into wild symbols. This wonderful interplay can result in the reels being adorned with many wilds once you activate all the piggy wilds.

What could be slightly frustrating in the previous version was that the Piggy Wilds' progress could disappear very quickly. In this version, the Megaways mechanic has been removed, and a new feature, namely the Pigs of Steel, has been added. This addition was exactly what was missing before, as piggy wilds can be protected with different layers, and thus, huge wins can be stacked up or at least be recreated. This is a great touch that you can be lucky enough to get in the base game, but in the bonus games, the conditions get better, whereas, in the ultra bonus game, you will not reset the meters on either Piggy Wilds or Pigs of Steel.

The game builds on a lovable theme and concept, where you can bag wins of up to 18173X the bet. This is certainly a big drop from the previous max win of 30540X the bet, but the size is still outstanding. We would have liked the odds of getting a max win to be better, though, as it currently averages 1 in 100M spins. The win multipliers, which previously increased by 1X for each win created, are now increased by the accumulation of moon bonus symbols, and we would have liked these to be slightly higher. After about 10 years of attempts to break the three little pigs' house, these pigs have figured out that steel is very useful for defense, which will most likely make the big bad wolf keep huffing and puffing for a long time.

Big Bad Wolf: Pigs of Steel is a slot where the addition of steel can make the gaming experience long-lasting and truly profitable.
