The look of Goldilocks and the Wild Bears slot is beautiful, but these characters are a little crazier than you remember.

Nope. That is not a typo. Quickspin studios have renamed the much-cherished children’s story as ‘Wild Bears’.

We guess to tie into the overall theme of the game (plenty of wilds), but man, do we miss those sweet domesticated bears with a cute little house.

We know that many people are not going to agree with us on that one, but we swear that it does look good. It has a beautiful hand-drawn look to it, which really makes you feel as if you are sinking your teeth into a storybook.

The soundtrack is awesome too.

Probably not ‘blow your mind’ awesome. This is no Pink Floyd album, but the sound is decent. Again, makes you feel as if you are reading a storybook. Sort-of reminds you of more innocent times.

We have no complaints about the theme, other than the fact that the bears look a little bit more malicious than we expected them to look.

25 payline slots with so many wilds

There are two wilds in this slot. You have the bear’s house which is just your bog-standard wild. Acts as a substitute for other symbols bar scatters etc.

The porridge is the wild that you really want, though. The more of the porridge wilds you have on the screen at once, the higher your multiplier is going to be:

  • One wild: 2x multiplier
  • Two wilds: 3x multiplier
  • Three wilds: 4x multiplier

Similar that you might find in the Big Bad Wolf slot game.

Those pesky wild bears are always dishing out free spins!

Of course, the bears aren’t quite wild in the base game. Don’t worry, they are getting there. You just need to trigger the free spins round. You will need three of the Goldilocks symbols to trigger the free spins and you will get just ten.

During the bonus round, every three Goldilocks symbols that you get will turn one of the bears wild:

  • 3 symbols: Daddy bear turns wild.
  • 6 symbols: Mummy bear turns wild
  • 9 symbols: the cute kid bear turns wild.

Honestly, it is going to be pretty difficult to annoy those bears enough to get them to turn wild. At a push, you are probably going to be getting the female bear turning wild during this bonus feature.

Goldilocks and The Wild Bears slot is far from perfect

We have triggered the free spins bonus several times and we have never successfully annoyed the young bear to turn wild. Would be nice too.

There would be plenty of wilds on the reels if that happened, alas, it is yet to.

This is the problem with this Goldilocks slot game. It is named after a feature which you rarely ever trigger.

There is always a sense of excitement when you dive into the slot that you are at least going to get something for your effort, but nope.

If we could shake up this free spins feature a little bit, then we would at least add a default multiplier into the mix. Doesn’t need to be anything crazy. Just a 2x multiplier, like in Wild Heist game by Yggdrasil, would make this feature more enjoyable for us.

Yeah, if you get lucky then you will have 5 wilds on the reels, but it’s never just right.

Do we recommend Goldilocks and the Wild Bears?

Yes. Goldilocks and the Wild Bears is a lovely online and mobile slot machine. It is well-drawn and the features are unique.

We love how they really play into the overall theming of the game – much like in their equally good Hidden slot.

It may be a little bit too volatile for some people, but the house edge of 2.16% means that the payments, even if they are small, are going to come out often enough that you won’t care too much.

We recommend you check it out, at least.
