Lil Red

 Lil Red Slot by WMS Gaming

Lil Red is the name given to the slot by WMS Gaming when it is in its brick and mortar format. Online the slot is called Lil Red Riches and is available for both free money and real money play. Lil Red can be found on many brick and mortar casino floors the world over, as its online counterpart can be found in many online casinos.

Lil Red uses the colossal reel system by WMS which means that it runs on two sets of reels. The first set is where most of the base game action happens, and is a 5×4 setup which will be familiar to most slot players. The second set of reels is a massive 5×12 set, and this is where most of the features happen. Lil Red was WMS’s original colossal reel system game, and is responsible for launching many other titles in the same format.

Setup and graphics

The graphics in Lil Red are not on par with many of the modern, 3D slot machines that can be found both online and in brick and mortar casinos. Being an older title, it has the expected drawing style graphics that aren’t quite cartoon like. They are detailed however and nice to look at. Lil Red can be classed as an all round volatility slot, due mainly to its very high betting range.  Up to 100 lines can be activated, and each line can be played for as little as 0.01 all the way up to 10. This makes Lil Red a great slot for all budgets and players of all experience levels.

Fairy Tale Theme

We all know about the little girl who went wandering in the woods to take a basket of food to her grandma. She happened across a wolf, who subsequently tricked her by eating her grandma and attempting to eat her. In the original Grimm’s Brothers story the wolf was rather gorily hacked to death by a woodcutter. Luckily Lil Red has no sign of blood or gore and offers a scantily clad Little Red Riding Hood instead

The base symbols in Lil Red are taken from a deck of cards, but instead of the usual 9 through to Ace you can find each suit displayed like a jewel. These will pay out 500 coins for five of them in a row. Next in line are the basket and bouquet of flowers that Lil Red was planning on delivering to her grandmamma. These will give you 750 credits for five in a row. Second last we have grandma herself and who we hope is the woodsman who will pay out 1000 coins for five. The Wolf is at the top of the game with 2000 coins for five.

Free Spins And Colossal Reels

Lil Red has only two features worth noting. The first is the wild which is the games logo. This can be found on the first set of reels.  When it fills a reel on the first set, it fills the corresponding reel on the second set too, creating potentially huge wins.

The scatter symbol is grandma’s cottage, and can only be found on reels one three and five on both sets. When you find three or more of these you will be granted eight free spins and a 2x multiplier. This increases with the amount of scatters that you find.
