If You Go Down To The Woods Today….
The story of Little Red Riding Hood is a sinister one, but you don’t have to worry about Lil Red Riches giving you nightmares. The graphics are soft and the soundtrack neutral – there is nothing to fear here. Even the wicked wolf can help you to create those lovely winning combinations.
The other symbols in the game are Little Miss Red, the woodsman, a picnic basket and the wig and glasses that the wolf cleverly wears to dupe Little Red. There are also the playing card suit symbols as well – spades, clubs, hearts and diamond. Grandmother’s house is the scatter symbol, whilst the Lil Red Riches logo is wild.
Don’t forget, wins will be awarded for matching just three of any symbol; ranging from 0.15 for three diamonds right up to 3.00 for five of the woodsmen. And if you’re lucky enough to match five of the Little Miss Red herself then you will scoop a payout of 7.50.
This is a fixed 40 payline game boosted by the additional combinations afforded by the fantastic Colossal Reels system.
Free and Easy
As with any good WMS slot game, Lil Red Riches features an engrossing Free Spins Bonus round that enables players to maximise their winnings without spending a penny.
This feature is triggered when you spin three or more of the scatter symbol (Grandma’s cottage) on reels 1, 3 and 5 of either the main set or the Colossal Reels, and in addition to free spins you can benefit from a cash multiplier too.
Three scatter symbols earns 8 free spins and a 2x multiplier.
Four scatter symbols earns 12 free spins and a 5x multiplier.
Five scatter symbols earns 20 free spins and a 20x multiplier.
The great thing about this particular Free Spins round is that your scatter can appear on either of the reel sets, which naturally increases your chances of accessing the Free Spins game.
That Lil Red Riches wild symbol offers plenty of power when it features on the main reel set; this will nudge a wild reel into place and then transfer this accordingly over to the corresponding Colossal Reel, which creates a huge wild reel and plenty of prize-winning opportunities.
In news that will make even that wicked wolf raise a smile, the wild will also substitute for any other symbol (except the scatter) to potentially create more winning combos.
From Rags to Riches
There’s a reason why WMS is so well respected in the gaming industry, and they continue to deliver with games like Lil Red Riches. It is a generously put together title – and that’s thanks in no small part to introduction of the Colossal Reels system. This gives players a huge number of ways in which to scoop those all-important winning combos.
The theme is a captivating one if you know the classic Little Red Riding Hood story, and there is enough in the way of graphical touches and sound effects for Lil Red Riches to take its place at the table of modern slot gaming; even if it is left behind by some of its contemporaries.
The transference of the stacked wilds from the main reels across the Colossal set is a fantastic addition, and one which keeps players on the edge of their seats at all times. It is these – plus the generous multipliers on offer in the Free Spins round – that ensure this game can happily be filed in the generous category.
