Microgaming has created a series of Wicked Tales slots and its latest edition, Wicked Tales: Dark Red is the most wicked of them all. A new take on the tale of Little Red Riding Hood, the howling Wolf Wheel Bonus and an eerie trip into the forest, it’s got wicked all over it.
Riding With Red On The Reels
Little Red Riding Hood into the deep, dark forest is surely the place any Red Riding Hood themed slot should start. Except Red Riding Hood isn’t so little any more. In Wicked Tales: Dark Red she’s grown up and become a femme fatale that’s more than capable of taking on the Big Bad Wolf. In fact, she’s the most lucrative slots symbol, giving us 80 times our stake when she appears five times on a payline.
This slot benefits from the Wandering Reels feature, a feature Microgaming used to such spooky effect in its Halloween slot released in 2017 but every bit as spooky now as it was then. Every bit as lucrative, too. The Wandering Reels feature uses groups of three reels that spin together and stop in different positions. The jumbo blocks then appear, taking over a massive space on the reels to create higher winning chances. But it’s the Wolf’s Wheel Bonus that gets us howling. When three Full Moon Scatters appear, we spin the wheel for a chance to win a prize, such as 20 times our stake. Oooowoooooo.
Lighting Up Dark Fairy Tales
We love slots based on fairy tales but they’re even better when they’ve taken a dark twist. With every Microgaming release the studio proves it has real talent and this new take on Little Red Riding Hood is no exception. Not just because of the intense animations, but the Wolf’s Wheel Bonus opens up scores of winning possibilities. With such generous rewards, perhaps the wolf isn’t the villain after all?
