What NetEnt are hiding under their ‘hood’ in Little Red Riding Hood
The classic fairy-tale is about to hit the G2G Free Slot Casino but the prizes are as real as they come.
If you like your slots packed with bonus features, this could be just the slot for you. Make sure you learn from Little Red Riding Hood’s mistakes and avoid the Big Bad Wolf to leave the forest far richer than when you arrived in it.
This slot could be considered one of the many top online casino games in India so let’s take a look what makes it so great!
Expectations are that Red Riding Hood will be red hot
NetEnt’s Fairytale Legends: Little Red Riding Hood is about to emerge from the forest as packed with prizes as it is fraught with danger and excitement. It’s a 5-reel x 3 rows slot with 20 bet lines. The usual G2G promise applies: you’ll have the exact same experience on mobile as you will on desktop.
Start your stakes at just 2 rupees a spin or if you’re feeling all ‘Seth’ of Dalal Street and like the high-roller lifestyle, you can wager as much as 2 000 Rupees a spin.
Standards are pretty high at NetEnt but I have good reasons to think that based on this particular theme, they could be about to become even higher. I know that they’re ace at turning children’s stories into colourful, action-packed, fun slots because I’ve seen them do it with Robin Hood- Shifting Riches and Jack and the Beanstalk. And I’m looking forward to lots of bonus rounds because I loved the frequent ones that last year’s slot – Hook’s Heroes – had. Finally, I know that they��re on the money with magical and mythical themes because their recent Jungle Spirit was a big hit and Warlords as well.
Get caught up in the story
Many of the characters that lived both in the book and in your imagination are present in the Red Riding Hood slot but there are a few new ones as well. No prizes for guessing which character is most likely to stand in the way between you and a potential 80,000 coins.
One of the new characters is a fairy, who seems to be good pals with ‘Red’. She reminds me of the fairy Tinker Bell out of Hook’s Heroes and is the one who helps you out during the bonus rounds.
The graphics make me feel like I’m actually being caught up inside the fairy tale. That includes feeling like the lurking Wolf is never too far away and I’ve to be on guard, sort of like driving on the streets without a helmet. I always need to look out for the traffic police!
The music is a bit like those kid’s adventure movies of the 80s- Goonies, The Never Ending Story, that sort of thing.
Red Riding Hood Features: the path to the cottage is also your path to riches
Symbols include the book, the shield, the key and the rose. I speculated last time out (link to Article 1) who might be the Sticky Wild symbol. Well, now we know. It’s ‘Red’ herself.
I’m guessing you want to hear about Red Riding Hood bonus features. Well, here you go…
Sticky Wild re-spins – Similar to those in Robin Hood and Jack and the Beanstalk. Appearing on Reels 2, 3 and 4, two or more give you a Sticky Wild re-spins. They’ll remain in the same place during the re-spin and can lead to further Sticky Wild re-spins.
I told you the Fairy’s appearance was good news and I wasn’t fibbing. Like an elusive family cat, she appears when she feels like it and triggers one of these three features at any point during the main game:
Fairy Magic Spin
Between 5 and 9 win symbols appear as an overlay on the reels and give you one free spin.
When no win means…guaranteed win. When you don’t get a win, occasionally this feature will be activated. One of the symbols that just appeared will stay on the reel and others will start to turn into that symbol until you have a win.
Fairy Wild Spin
3 or 4 Wild Symbols (the Red Riding Hood symbol) will appear on the reels and you’ll get a free spin. Once your Wild Spin has been done and your winnings are safely in the bank, you’ll get a Sticky Wild re-spin and any Sticky Wilds that were already there, will stay there. Want yet another re-spin? You’ll get one as long as another Sticky Wild appears anywhere during the re-spin.
If you get bonus feature symbols on Reels 1, 3 and 5, you get to pick one of the three chests. The bonus rounds available are: Beware the Wolf Bonus, Free Spins and Coin Bonus.
Beware the Wolf Bonus
You’re just about to become Red Riding Hood herself in a board-game like a bonus round. Roll the dice and move around the board. You’ll always end up on one of the following:
- Coin win – Land on this and you’ll get the coin win multiplied by the multiplier displayed on the box where you land.
- Double – Land here and all Multipliers- including the Coin Jackpot Win – are doubled.
- Arrow – When the player land on the Arrow symbol, you’ll move onto the Arrow on your next move. Land on the Jackpot Coin win location and you’ll collect the Jackpot in addition to all the coins you’ve accumulated already but the Beware the Wolf Bonus ends.
- Jackpot Coin Win – You’ll get either 100x or 200x your initial bet depending on whether you landed on a Double (200x) prior to getting it or not (100x).
- Collect – The Wolf caught up with you eventually! The round comes to an end and you leave the secret path with all the coins collected up to that point.
10 of them are about to come your way. You can get extra free spins if you get additional Bonus symbols during them: 1 symbol = 2 free spins, 2 symbols = 4 free spins, 3 symbols = 10 free spins.
2 or more Wilds during free spins give you re-spins and act as Sticky Wilds.
You’ll get an instant coin win which will be the current bet multiplied by 15.
