Old And New Red Riding Hood Slots


Microgaming will be releasing a new online slot with a noir version of the Red Riding Hood theme. It is titled Wicked Tales: Dark Red. Meanwhile here are some excellent video slots based on the conventional children’s story.

The video slot from Leander Games is titled Little Red. It is in the 5x3 reels structure with 25 fixed paylines. The bet range is on the lower end but the slot game has high volatility. The hamper given to Red Riding Hood by her mother awards the highest line payout of 7500 coins. It is also the wild symbol. The other symbols include Little Red, the wolf, granny, granny’s cot, butterfly, axe, apple pie, granny’s dentures and bunch of flowers. On certain spins, log may drop down from the reels. After you accumulate five logs a bridge forms across the stream. Little Red crosses the bridge and leads you to the “Into The Woods” bonus feature. You have to choose one of the paths. The idea is to reach granny’s home without meeting the wolf. If you are successful then you win an instant bonus and pick again. Four correct picks take you to granny’s house and trigger the free spins bonus. A wrong pick leads to an encounter with the wolf and ends the bonus.

Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood is from the games supplier NetEnt. The visual appeal is enhanced by a unique parallax movement that creates Red Riding Hood walking through the woods. Red Riding Hood is the wild symbol. The other high paying symbols are not related to the story but are common across the Fairytale Legends series. They include the game logo, emblem, key, rose and book. The low symbols are the playing card icons. There are three randomly triggered features in the main game. The Fairy Magic feature creates a cluster of 5 to 9 symbols as an overlay on the reels for one spin. The Fairy Surprise feature successively converts symbols to a randomly chosen one till a winning combination is formed. The Fairy Wild Spin randomly adds up to 4 wild symbols on the reels. The treasure chest symbols trigger the bonus game, in which you will be randomly awarded one of three features. One feature awards 10 free spins and the second one awards a bonus that is 15x the current bet. The best is Beware the Wolf bonus game on the second screen. Red Riding Hood moves along a trail in the woods awarding various benefits depending on where she lands.
