If you go down to the woods today, you are sure of a big surprise, as casino games developer, IGT has updated the tale of Little Red Riding Hood and turned it into an exciting online video slot. Miss Red is a 5-reel game which gives you 1,024 ways to line symbol up for a win.
The story of Little Red Riding Hood is about young girl taking a basket of food to her Grandmother. A wolf has eaten Grandma and has Riding hood lined up for dessert, but a brave Woodcutter turns up, chops open the wolf and Grandma is rescued. Everyone then lives happily ever after, except the poor wolf of course.
IGT have taken the basics of the story and given you symbols of the main characters, although Miss Red is now an attractive lady with a devilish look in her eye. The slot comes with a couple of special features, such as the ability to form winning combinations across any three reels, including the middle ones, and the End2End expanding symbols feature, which creates high-paying lines of matching icons.
Free spins and wild symbol substitutions are other treats that you will encounter on your trip through this fairy-tale forest. Miss Red can be played on laptops, desktop computers, Android and iOS devices, which has helped bring it to a wide audience. Try it for free here, or head over to one of our top New Jersey slots sites or top Pennsylvania slots sites and see if there’s a happily ever after waiting for you.
This slot uses the standard IGT control panel, which makes it easy to set up and gives you a wide bet range. Simple arrow buttons change stakes from a minimum of 0.45 per spin to a maximum bet of 450.00. You always play with 45 coins and change the coin values to suit your budget., Of course, it’s easy to re-set the value between spins.
Wins are shown as the number of coins and a Paytable lists what each symbol is worth when it lands across any three or more reels. Thanks to the MultiWays Xtra format, the line of symbols can start anywhere, and having more than one winning symbol on a reel multiplies the win. The Paytable also outlines how bonus features, such as the unique End2End system can pay out extra prizes.
Miss Red also comes with an Auto Spin function, although you can’t preset any win or loss levels before activating it, so you will still need to keep an eye on the bankroll. A useful feature that many online IGT slots offer is the option to change the graphics quality. If your internet or mobile connection isn’t so good, you can choose lower-quality graphics without affecting the gameplay or features.
The reels are set in a dark forest and the game is decorated with chains of flowers to give it a charming style. Alongside the high-paying main characters, you will see a squirrel, pine cone, mushroom and rabbit symbols.
Payouts range from 15 coins with full lines of mushrooms, to 150 coins when Grandma lands across the reels. Remember that these values can be multiplied if a winning symbol is seen in more than one place on a reel.
An image of Miss Red and the wolf together is wild, meaning that it can act as others if it helps to complete combinations. Both the wolf and Miss Red on their own are special expanding symbols in what IGT call their End2End feature. If either appears in the same row, on non-adjacent reels, any symbol in between will be transformed in to more wolf or Red symbols. If the wolf transforms any symbols of Red, she becomes a wild symbol, and vice versa.
Grandma’s house is a bonus symbol and when you land this in any three or more places, a free spins game is awarded. Before these begin, however, you will see 5 baskets of flowers and you pick any of them to find out how many free spins you have. Between five and 15 spins can be found, so with luck, you will select the basket with the highest number of games. More bonus symbols will retrigger the round, to a potential maximum of 280 free spins.
During the games, all symbols transformed by the End2End feature will become wilds, which makes it easier to complete high-value sequences. You will also get instant entry to the free games if a symbol of Grandma’s house is transformed in an End2End feature.
