Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special - Christmas season and a warm fire with a hot cup of cocoa by the fireplace is the perfect setting for reminiscing. Your childhood stories and fairytales can be revisited in the form of slot games! Quickspin takes you back to the three little pigs and the big bad wolf with the sequel to their 2013 release — Big Bad Wolf, with a dab of Christmas spirit.
The game is set on a snow-covered landscape at either dawn or dusk with a wooden grid that looks like cubbies. In each cubby hold are the symbols that Quickspin took great care to design. The visuals are impressive; we like the detail, and everything is lit up with Christmas garlands.
There is even what seems to be a tree intertwined with yellow Xmas lights to give Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special a true holiday feeling.
The details are looking good so far. We start off with a max RTP (return to player) at a very healthy 97.34%. This is a whole point higher than the standard, so you can expect some decent rewards from Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special. The grid is made up of a 5×3 grid that offers 25 paylines. So far, so basic, right?
The max payout is pretty nice at 1,225x your initial stake. We have seen slot games with the same grid layout, same paylines, with a lot less. We’ll take what we can get with Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special, which really isn’t bad at all. The betting range is surprisingly wide, from 0.25 to 125.

It almost makes us think that the jackpot could be higher. But we always appreciate a wide betting range since it can accommodate high rollers and more conservative players.
After all, the features in Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special may more than make up for our want for more.
Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special features the swooping reels mechanic, which is basically the same as the rolling reels in other games. It removes winning combo symbols to make way for more and, therefore, more winning chances.
There are three main features in Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special that fit into the story - Pigs Turn Wild, Blowing Down the House and the standard free spins offered in most games.

In the Pigs Turn Wild, it works with the swooping reel mechanic to turn one of the little pigs into a wild. You can get all of them to turn wild if you manage to activate at least 6 swooping reels.
Blowing Down the House consists of the Big Bad Wolf trying to blow down the houses of the three piggies. However, the free spins need to be activated during this feature. You can collect the moon symbols during this feature in Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special to add more multipliers and free spins. The free spins are triggered with the scatter symbol, which you will need three of to start.
The theme in Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special is very welcoming during colder months, especially this year when devastation has plagued the world. However, is it really worth your time and cash? We like how with minimal playlines and a smaller grid, you can still manage to earn a decent return while still enjoying yourself with the company of a very familiar tale.
