An online slot machine based on a children’s fairy tale may not be unheard of in the realm of virtual fruit machines but we are far more used to seeing slots with themes such as movies and comic book superheroes. There’s nothing wrong with that of course but every now and then a slot such as Goldilocks and the Wild Bears pops up and offers something a little different.
The first thing that strikes you about the this slot from Quickspin are the lovely graphics which are a stunning throwback to the illustrations from children’s books from forty years ago or more. With the proliferation of high-tech graphics on so many online slots it’s nice to see some genuine art on show. We assume the title ‘wild’ bears rather than ‘three’ bears refers to the bear symbol being the wild card.
It’s a five reel, twenty five payline machine with the standard 10, J, Q, K and A symbols and added to these are the special symbols comprising one for each bear and a teddy bear. The multiplier wild symbol is a bowl of porridge, the regular wild is the Three Bears house while Goldilocks herself is the scatter symbol.
The regular wild does exactly what is says on the tin and substitutes for standard symbols to make winning combinations but the multiplier wild is a little different; this is the bowl of porridge symbol and if you land one which makes a winning combo you also receive a 2x multiplier. Land two or three in a winning combo and you’ll get a 2x or 3x multiplier.
Spinning three Goldilocks symbols will kick off the Bears Turn Wild feature and this is a funky little game which can prove quite profitable; you’ll get ten free spins and a new Goldilocks symbol appears. Land her three times or more and you the bears will turn into wild bears for the rest of the spins. Extra free spins can also be won at this point.
This is a game for low and high rollers alike and you can wager as little as €0.01 for one payline and one spin up to €10.00 on twenty five paylines for a maximum bet per spin of €250.00. Spinning five regular wilds will pay you a jackpot of 1000x your winning line stake.
