The Li’l Red video slot machine isn’t the newest game on the casino floor but it’s one of the most popular. Officially this game is called “Li’l Red Riches,” but you won’t easily find the word “Riches” when looking for the slot machine in casinos. This is an unbranded game based on the “Little Red Riding Hood” fairy tale.
What sets the Li’l Red slot machine apart from many others on the casino floor are its dual reels. Li’l Red gameplay starts on a traditionally sized 5 x 4 reel video slot machine. Unlike most other games in casinos, there’s a second Colossal reel that adds, even more, excitement. The second Colossal reel is 5 x15. Each reel pays independently, so you may win on one side of the screen and not the other. Each spin has a total of 100 pay lines.
If you’ve been into a casino lately you may have seen other games like Zeus, Kronos, and a few other titles by WMS Gaming that also use a similar technology.
One of the unique features in Li’l Red takes effect when a Wild symbol lands on the first set of reels. Stacked Wild symbols earned on the small 5×4 reel are transferred to the corresponding reel in the Colossal reel game. You can still land Wild reels independently on the Colossal reel in addition to those that pass over. Li’l Red can have some very big wins if you end up with multiple Wild symbols on both reels at the same time.
The Bonus symbol will appear on the 1, 3, and 5 reels on both the small and colossal reel. The free spins Bonus is activated differently than the way Li’l Red pays. Bonus symbols aren’t counted independently. The Bonus is activated when you land three (3) Bonus symbols between the two sets of reels. You could have two Bonus symbols on one reel and get the third on the other reel to win a free spins Bonus.
The Bonus game in Li’l Red is fairly simple. You can win up to 20 free spins and a multiplier up to 20x. Three Bonus symbols earn 8 free spins and a 2x multiplier, four Bonus symbols earns 12 free spins and a 5x multiplier and five Bonus symbols earn 20 free spins and the huge 20x multiplier.
You can earn more free spins during the bonus games when three or more Bonus symbols show on any of the reels. Li’l Red doesn’t have progressive jackpots, but that doesn’t mean you can’t win big. Since this video slot machine has 100 pay lines there are plenty of opportunities for a big win.
Li’l Red is a simple, yet exciting slot machine. The game doesn’t use a huge progressive jackpot to attract players. The technology, different sized reels, and 100 pay lines are what make this video slot machine fun. Over the years Li’l Red has earned its place in just about every casino.
