Red Riding Hood Slot Review

Red Riding Hood is a timeless tale, familiar across the world in a variety of cultures and languages. It is only apt that Net Entertainment brings this entertaining tale on the reels. And just like with the titular characters, there’s a bit of a risk venturing into the wild reels. Worry not though, there are more than enough positive surprises to be found too. The game is part of the Fairytale Legends series of games.

True to their style, NetEnt has upped the game with their usual high-quality graphics the company is known from. The forest opens up in the background, with our main characters strolling through the reels in search of a way to the magnificent wins awaiting. Everything is enhanced with some magical music, setting the scene for the eventual confrontation with winning combinations.

Being such a familiar and popular story, and since the subject is way out of copyright claims, the same theme can be found in several different slots. You can enjoy a similar setting in Cayetano’s Little Red Riding Hood, Lil Red by WMS, and Red Cap by Endorphina. Other games in the Fairytale Legends include Mirror Mirror, and Hansel and Gretel.

What really sets this game apart are the features. There is a whole world of them to enjoy. If you are someone who likes classic slots, then perhaps this game isn’t the right fit for you. Otherwise, there’s nothing to criticize really, as the game offers an excellent experience on all platforms and devices.

How to Play Red Riding Hood

The twenty fixed paylines run from left to right through the five reels. The setup should be familiar to most players, with the 5×3 grid setup. To score a win you need to land three to five matching symbols on those paylines.

The win is calculated depending on your bet, which you can set from a minimum of 0.20 coins to 200 coins per spin.

That bet is divided between the lines, so make sure you choose the right total bet. Once done, you need to simply press the spin, which will get the rounds going.

Once the right symbols land in the right places you get to claim the win. In some cases, this will result in bonus features activating, whilst other bonus features activate completely at random. To speed up the process you can activate Autoplay. This will have the computer spin the reels for you for as many rounds as you like. You can also set the automatic play to stop when you reach a certain number of wins or other such triggers.

The symbols in the game are quite familiar, at least for the lower caste. Playing card ranks will take care of all the smaller wins, and they are styled up a bit with different magical effects too. Other important symbols include a fairytale book, a magical treasure and a key for it, as well as a couple of other symbols that fit the theme.

Red Riding Hood herself is the main symbol, as she functions as a wild. A bonus treasure chest functions as a scatter, activating other bonus features that the game comes with.

Game Rules

Red Riding Hood Slot Features

The bonuses that the special features of Red Riding Hood lay on the reels can be divided into two settings. Ones that change the basic game via different effects and modifiers and ones that open up independent bonus games. Both are of course welcome additions to the game, increasing entertainment and excitement even higher.

Red Riding Hood Sticky Wild Re-Spins

The wild symbol only shows up on reels two, three and four during the normal spins. When two wilds land during the same round, it’s an occasion worth celebrating. This is why the wilds will remain sticky, and the player will be rewarded with a re-spin. It’s a good chance to score some big wins.

Red Riding Hood Random Features

There are three random features in the game that can activate during any spin, and don’t require any special symbols. The first one of these is the Fairy Magic Spin. This will add five to nine randomly chosen medium-win symbols on the reels, adding to your chances to win big through all 20 paylines.

The second feature is called Fairy Surprise. This can activate only when there are no wins at all during the spin. Low-value symbols will then start to be turned into one randomly chosen symbol, and this will go on until a win is formed along the paylines.

Finally, the third random bonus feature the player can run into is the Fairy Wild Spin. This will add between three and four wild symbols on the middle reels. It will also result in a Sticky Wild Re-spin.

Bonus Features

Red Riding Hood online slots doesn’t only offer random features, but also a couple that come via the bonus symbols. Landing three of these will lead to three chests, of which you need to pick one. The chest will then reveal one of three bonuses.

Bonus Features
Red Riding Hood Free Spins

The second option that can show up from the bonus chests are the free spins. These bonus rounds don’t offer anything out of the ordinary, but you do get 15 of them. More than enough spins to get some other features to rock the reels.

Beware the Wolf Bonus

Finally we get to the wolf! This is akin to a board game, where Red Riding Hood moves around trying to avoid the wolf. As you move, you collect different prizes from different locations, including multipliers, jackpots and coin wins.
