Over the years we have seen numerous children’s stories turned into playable slots by some of the best casino software developers.
Towards the end of October another is to be added to those already available from NetEnt and this time the tale of Little Red Riding Hood is bedtime spinning for casino players.
We all know the tale of Red Riding Hood and the big bad wolf, and NetEnt have created another enchanting slot that joins the likes of Jack And The Beanstalk in their suite of titles.
What’s most noticeable when watching the trailer for the game is how feature heavy this 5 reel, 20 payline adaptation is.
There are cash trails, free spins and a whole plethora of other treats when you spin the reels.
There are no less than six different features to activate in this slot game, some are randomly activated whilst the others are triggered by spinning in certain symbols on the reels.
Additionally wilds are sticky until no more are spun in.
Fairy Magic Spin
A cluster of symbols are added to the reels for one spin, a feature that certainly creates the potential for impressive winning combinations.
Fairy Wild Spin
This will activate randomly during a spin and three or four symbols will be added. A standard payout will be made and then followed by a re-spin in which the extra wilds are locked into position.
After a spin the doesn’t create a win, one of the standard symbols will be chosen randomly. The lower value symbols on the reels will become the chosen symbol until a winning combination is created.
When three treasure box scatter symbols appear you have to pick one to determine which of the following three features is awarded:
As the name suggests, you will be allocated a cash bonus that is anything up to 15x the original stake.
Another that is pretty obvious, you’ll be awarded free spins for this feature. 10 will be given but a further 10 can be activated. Sticky wilds are on the reels.
Beware The Wolf
When this is chosen you are taken on a trail through the woods. You flip the wooden ‘cards’ and Little Red Riding Hood moves through the cash trail collecting multipliers as she goes.
During the cash trail there are double ups and short cuts with the final destination having a base multiplier of 100x. This can be increased by landing on ‘Doubles’ .
Travelling along short cuts proves lucrative because the multipliers are higher value.
The game ends if you are caught by the wolf.
Red Riding Hood certainly looks to have great playability, just as we expected from a NetEnt game, and we can’t wait for it to arrive at one of our favourite online casinos.
It’s reported to be launching on 26th October 2016 but for now, you can watch the trailer by clicking the image below.
