Yes everyone, here is another slot designed after a classic fairy tale story and we are loving it. Designed and developed by Quickspin, Goldilocks and the Wild Bears brings back everything we loved about the story. You will find all the same characters from the fairy tale and best part is all the bonus features in this game has been designed around the theme!
Here’s something that you will want to hear – Goldilocks and the Wild Bears slot boasts two Wilds instead of just one. To add to that, players can even take home up to a staggering 1,000 times their spin wager in a single spin in the base game. Now, who’s looking to meet some Wild Bears?
Goldilocks and the Wild Bears is a five reel slot that sports 25 paylines. As mentioned previously, Quickspin has done good by bringing back every single character from the fairytale to this slot. On your reels you will be acquainted with papa bear, mama bear, baby bear and Goldilocks herself. In this game, the Regular Wild is the highest paying symbol and will reward you with 1,000x your spin wager when you get five of them in a winning payline.
Wagers wise, Goldilocks accepts wagers from a mere 25p all the way up to £100 per spin. As with all newer slots, the wide range of wagers accepted will accommodate both casual players and enthusiasts. Set as a medium variance game, players will experience consistent wins with decent amounts throughout the game. Maintaining your bank balance shouldn’t be an issue if you can trigger some of the bonus features every now and then. For those of you who are more technically inclined, the Return to Player (RTP) rate of this game is set at a healthy 96.2%.
Let’s cut straight to the chase here – the quality of animations in Goldilocks and the Wild Bears is simply mind boggling. Even with the somewhat sophisticated Bears Turn Wild feature, the whole feel that the animations gave was almost video game like.
And then, there is the theme. We can’t stress enough how important it was for Quickspin to maintain the theme of the original fairytale. No shortcuts were taken in the execution of the theme and the attention to detail in the design of all the symbols is second to none. The soundtrack that accompanies the gameplay is also soothing to the ears so unlike many other games, we weren’t reaching to hit the mute button during the entirety of your gaming session.
Goldilocks and the Wilds Bears is compatible with almost all types of devices under the sun including on PCs, tablets and mobile phones. Case in point – this slot even ran as smooth as silk on our three year old iPhone.
Under the hood, Goldilocks and the Wild Bears come with two elaborate features. The first feature is the Wilds and there are two types of them in this game. The ordinary Wild comes in the form of the Bears house and as always, they will replace all other symbols on your reels to complete winning paylines. The second Wild is called the Multiplier Wild, and as its name suggests, this Wild comes with an attached win multiplier value. One, two and three Multiplier Wilds will reward you with a 2x, 3x and 4x win multiplier on your wins.
The second bonus feature in this game are the classic extra spins and Bears Turn Wild feature. To trigger this feature, you will need a minimum of three scatter symbols on your reels which will in turn award you with 10 extra spins. What makes this feature really exciting is the fact that you will be collecting more scatters during your extra spin rounds that will give you more Wilds. The following are the details:
- 3 scatters – Papa Bear becomes a Wild
- 6 scatters – Papa and Mama Bears become Wilds and you will be awarded an additional 2 spins
- 9 scatters – Papa, Mama and baby Bears become Wilds and you will be awarded an additional 2 spins
Everything considered, we are glad that Quickspin put on their creative hats while designing this game. It was heartwarming to see each and every character playing a role in the bonus features. All the audio visuals in this game has been has been beautifully designed to both suit the theme and generate lots of excitement in your gaming session. Having two Wilds instead of just one was a nice touch that helped boost our winnings by quite a bit at times.
Granted, there are already tens of other slots that have been made after fairy-tale themes, but we think that none of them are as emotionally uplifting as Goldilocks and the Wild Bears. It has this sense of calm and composure to it that makes it super pleasing to play!
