Spin that reel – Goldilocks and the wild bears slot review
The Goldilocks and the Wild Bears slot is based on the famous fairy tale. It is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot powered by Quickspin with 2 bonus features. There is the Free Spins feature where you begin with 10 free spins but within it, you also have the Bears Turn Wild feature. Papa, Mummy and Baby Bear can be turned into wilds which remain sticky on the reels throughout the free spins feature. This can bring you some pretty sweet wins, you just need to land as many goldilocks as you can.
The slot game comes with free spins, expanding multipliers and two types of wilds and you can start with as little as 25 cents per spin all the way up to €100 per spin.
The wilds and scatters in Goldilocks
The regular wild, which has an image of a cottage replaces all other symbols apart from the scatter. Nothings fancy about this wild, but still nice though.
The second scatter is a bowl of porridge and this is the more interesting wild because it has a multiplier attached to it and it will boost any payline in which it appears. If your winning combination features 1 multiplier wild, the win will be doubled. You can imagine what happens when you have two bowls of porridge or even the maximum of three bowls!
Goldilocks and the Wild Bears also has a Free Spins feature which is triggered by hitting 3 Goldilocks scatters symbols on reels 2,3 and 4. You’ll receive 10 free spins but it’s possible to add more via the Bears Turn Wild feature. This is by far the most exciting feature in the game.
Look out for the Goldilocks Progress Scatter symbols (Goldilocks sticking out her tongue). Three of these scatters will turn Daddy Bear into a wild. Five scatters turn Mummy Bear wild and also provide two free spins. It’s the same for Baby Bear which will also turn wild with five scatters and give you two extra spins. All of these wilds will remain so for the duration of the free spins.
The biggest paying symbol is the regular wild. Five of these wilds in a payline will give you 1,000 times your line bet. The bears pay between 200 and 250 times your bet for a five line combination. Goldilocks and the Wild Bears has a low to medium variance so expect to play for quite a while with some low to average wins coming your way, but of course you can get lucky. Again Quickspin has proved that it is playing in the big boys league where it comes to creating nice and entertaining slot titles.
Design of Goldilocks
The design of this game is beautifully illustrated and of course you find Goldilocks, Papa Bear, Mama Bear and Baby Bear in it and even teddy bear! The illustration style is what you would expect from a fairy tale like slot and the music and sound effects fit the game very well. This combination makes the game very nice to play and another plus is the pace you can play the game with.
The Goldilocks slot is definitely fun to play for both the beginning and the more experienced player. The wilds appear quite often and this brings a lot of dynamics to the gameplay. Although there is no big progressive jackpot attached to it, we still think Quickspin did a very nice job in creating an entertaining slot game that can keep you entertained for hours.
