Slot Take on the Classic
A new arrival in Golden Euro’s ever-expanding library of casino games, Lil Red is a great new take on a familiar story. As you might guess from the name, it’s a slot based on the story of Little Red Riding Hood. Just like the story, it takes place in the woods close to Red’s home and stars all the main characters. Released in early 2022, Lil Red comes with 243 ways to win across 5 paylines and maximum wins up to 2,000x the bet.
The slot’s medium variance promises great action, but the features are the real star of the game. With Bursting wilds and symbol replacements, this is a folk tale remix that’s worth revisiting.
Lil Red, Setup, Controls, and Paytable
The Lil Red slot has a 5x3 setup with 243 ways to win. The slot has a pretty familiar layout and design, with modern visuals and sharp symbols. Among them are Lil Red herself, the grandma, wolf, and the woodcutter. They’re joined by a set of beautifully designed card royals that pay significantly less.
A howling wolf is the wild, with the grandma taking on the role of a Bursting wild. We liked the top-notch animations of the slot when the reels turn. The visuals are nothing short of impressive. This isn’t the Red Hood you knew as a kid – the symbols are far more mature and fit for 2022.
You won’t need a guide to play the Lil Red slot. It’s extremely easy to spin it thanks to the set of controls beneath the reels that allows easy access. Just like the visuals, the audio and sound effects are on point too.
Lil Red Slot Gameplay and Free Spins
Before you start playing you will need to place a bet. When you’re ready to join the adventure, you can hit the Spin button or use the Autoplay feature. The base game is pretty straightforward, with wilds stepping in to complete (hopefully) big winning combinations. Bursting wilds can spice up your wins further in addition to the 243 ways to win.
The symbol replacement feature fuel the higher-paying returns, but these are active in the free spins round only. This one is triggered by three or more scatters, giving you 15 free spins. Trigger the bonus with four or five and you get 30 and a whopping 60 free spins respectively.
Winning symbols in the bonus round are replaced by new ones, with the morphing continuing as long as there are new winning combinations on the reels. As your wins morph, the multiplier rises. It starts at x2 for the first morph but can go as high as x5 on four or more morphs.
Lil Red Slot Verdict – the Remix
This remix of a very popular folk tale is a great addition to Golden Euro’s game lobby. It gives us a new take on the Red Riding Hood story, updated for the modern era. Of course, the story elements have been untouched, but they’ve been updated in slot format with bursting wilds and symbol morphs in the free spins round that can deliver cash prizes of 2,000x the bet.
