Whether you’re a fan of fairy tale story books or not, you will have undoubtedly have heard the story of Little Red Riding Hood; the sweet, innocent little girl who ventures out into the woods to see her sick grandma.

One gobble and the grey-haired lady has gone, so he lies in wait for the little girl…
Microgaming Presents Wicked Tales: Dark Red
…Wicked Tales: Dark Red is a 5 reel, 25 win line slot based upon Little Red Riding Hood, but she’s not so little any more. A voluptuous siren is not so fearful no more and she is after taking out the big bad wolf. The axe man in the story books has also been given a makeover and he’s a dashing gent with a scar running down his face – we assume he got this from the wolf.
Microgaming’s Wicked Tales: Dark Red features Triple Edge’s signature Wandering Reels; a group of three reels that spin together and contain Jumbo Blocks, which work to increase the player’s chance of landing big wins. Landing three bonus symbols in the base game triggers the Wolf’s Wheel Bonus, where the suspense intensifies. During the bonus, players have the chance to spin the wheel for instant cash prizes, multipliers and the treasure chest – this is a symbol that leads to the Forest of Fortunes, where the game’s pick bonus awaits.
Within the Forest of Fortunes, players can choose from a number of leather pouches to find cash prizes – combine these with a multiplier that increases each time a pouch with a cash prize is revealed and you’re in for a colossal win-fall. Immunities in the form of an axe can also be collected, helping players prolong the bonus round by defending against the lurking werewolf attempting to bring an end to the feature. Landing on any high value symbols during the wheel bonus will activate the free spins bonus. During the free games, nine free spins are awarded with Wandering Reels.
David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming said; ‘Wicked Tales: Dark Red brings back the exhilarating Wandering Reels feature alongside a gripping feature guaranteed bonus wheel, which can lead to a pick bonus round or free spins rounds. Triple Edge Studios have done an amazing job in combining darker elements with exciting features and new math design to inject newfound thrill and suspense into a classic tale.’
