Red Riding Hood Slot Review
Long before The UKGC intervened on images that may appeal to children, NetEnt launched a series of slots inspired by Fairytale Legends. Red Riding Hood was the first in this series and arrived in 2017. This 20 payline, 5 reel slot with seven features is still available to play at many sites and gameplay hasn’t changed. However graphics advertising the game now have to be restricted as show here on Spins.
How To Play Red Riding Hood Slots
Graphically Red Riding Hood Slots is a stunning game – but that’s not unusual for Net Entertainment. The titular character resides to the left of the reels but the backdrop is basic with a forest path design. On each spin Red Riding Hood walks along path so the background changes a little each time. You can spin from as little as 1p per line or go high roller and opt to wager as much as £10 per line. An auto-play feature allows you up to 100 spins but we expect that this feature will soon be removed.
On the reels you will find a number of Fairy Tale inspired symbols such as a key, magic book, rose and shield. The top paying icon is an FL symbol which pays out x400 for five of a kind. The gold shield pays x250 whilst the key is x200. The low paying symbols are the usual card playing ones represented by 10, J, Q, K and A. Among the features you’ll find playing Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood are sticky wild re-spins. These are triggered when two or more wilds appear on the reels 2, 3 and 4. The wilds remain fixed in place whilst you get a respin and hopefully another win!
We don’t remember a fairy ever being in Red Riding Hood but there is one in this game and she’s happy to grant wishes. She will appear randomly to generate wilds or transform symbols until you get a winning line. We know there’s a wolf involved in the story and he does make an appearance during the bonus round. Get three or more treasure chests to unlock the bonus game where you can win a cash prize, collect free spins or play the Beware The Wolf bonus game. Unfortunately we didn’t see this during our trial play but understand that it’s a board game style affair.
The Spin On Red Riding Hood Slots
Red Riding Hood slots from Net Entertainment is a quality game. It’s visually stunning and the features are good. The random arrival of the fairy can be a bit of a shock and we’d have loved to have seen The Big Bad Wolf at least once! As is we “made do” with Red Riding Hood walking through the forest whilst we played the game. When we reviewed the game originally we said that we were looking forward to seeing the next in the series of Net Entertainment’s Fairytale Legends. This was Hansel & Gretel but since then the series hasn’t expanded.
