Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special Slots
The Big Bad Wolf needs no introduction from us - we're sure you've read or heard the story of those poor little pigs. This story has proved ripe for inspiration in the world of slot games too, and now we have a festive version to try as well.
Welcome to our review of Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special, a slot game that shares a familiar feeling with the non-festive version. This time, we have snow, we have Santa hats, and all the festive trimmings you can expect. Shall we begin?
This is a Quickspin game, as you might have guessed if you're familiar with the original Big Bad Wolf slot from the same developer.
Demo action available as always
Quickspin is a reliable developer in this area, so you can certainly count on trying the game before you decide whether to spend some pennies on a few wagers on the reels.
A mix of cool themes here
You've got the Big Bad Wolf theme returning, of course, but this time we have a Christmas-based theme to go along with it. Expect lots of snow for this one…
A familiar design with a twist
If you played the original game, you'll recognize some of the elements appearing in this one. The house is the same, including the boxes for each of the spots on the reels. But of course, this is a Christmas-themed slot, so we've got snow on top of the house, with plenty more laying on the ground. There are fairy lights wrapped around a nearby tree and strung around either side of the reels too.
How to play Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special
Are you ready? You might expect the usual 5 x 3 format, and that's what you get here. You also have a regular wild - labeled and with a festive bow on it - replacing everything except for the scattered wolf and the moon icon.
How many paylines in this game?
There are 25 here, so a decent quantity to play on.
Place your festive bets today

The paytable explains more
If you played the original game, you might recognize some of the features in this Christmas Special. However, even if you're a seasoned pro with this game, you can still read through the paytable to check on the rules for this version.
Exploring the bonus features
Firstly, we have Swooping Reels, which we're sure you have seen in other formats in other games. The idea is that when you get a prize on the reels, the winning icons vanish and the symbols above swoop into the vacated places. You then see new symbols swoop in to take their places.
The next feature is Pigs Go Wild. On the second Swoop to occur, you'll see one out of the three pigs turning into a wild icon. If you manage to get six Swoops in a row, all the pigs change into wild symbols. Of course, whenever a prize occurs on a Swoop, the feature continues.
Free spins available in Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special
The big bad wolf can be quite useful in this game. Find him three times in view anywhere in one spin and you go through to the Blowing Down the House free spin round. Ten spins await, with the wolf attempting to catch the pigs throughout. The moon icon comes into play here too, landing only on the final reel but delivering extra spins if you can get it. There is a chance to find a 2x prize multiplier too.
RTP for the slot game
The game offers a total RTP of 97.34%, so this goes way above the average for the industry.
Our rating for Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special slots
This is an awesome game and while there are few differences with the original, the Christmas 'skin' makes it even more entertaining. We're giving this one nine out of 10.
Plenty of winning opportunities if things go your way
The chance of scoring a prize worth 100x your wager is around one in 1,043, according to the information released on this game. However, the potential lies within the Swooping Reels and the Pigs Go Wild feature, especially when they combine. One spin can continue for far longer than you might believe if you get some good fortune here.
Play the demo as the ideal introduction
The game has lots to offer throughout the festive season, so try it as an alternative to the more traditional slots.
Will you move on to play some real wagers?
You can decide the answer to that once you've played the demo of Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special.
Mobile access available too
If you want to face the wolf on a smaller screen, you can make it happen by picking up your Android or iOS device and using touchscreen controls to play instead.
