Once upon a time, there lived Little Red Riding Hood and a big bad wolf. The wolf pretends to be her grandma. Despite her large carnivorous teeth and wolfish snout, the silly girl stayed on and eventually got eaten up. What better way to get into players’ hearts than some good ol’ nostalgia? mFortune Casino had this classic story made into a mobile slot. Don’t let its kiddy illustrations fool you though – there are two mini games, free spins and a progressive jackpot too!

Little Red Riding Reels has a pretty standard setup. There are 5 reels and 15 paylines. The minimum bet is only 5p per spin (with a single payline) or 75p if you activate all 15 paylines. If you’re new to mFortune Casino, you could redeem a free £8 bonus when you download the game and enjoy up to 160 free spins! There’s room to grow your wagers once you’ve accumulated a sizeable bank balance. Every time I make about 20% more than before, I’ll increase my bet and rake in even larger winnings. In this game, the maximum bet is £10 per payline or £150 for all 15 paylines.
The biggest payouts are found in the four-of-a-kind and five-of-a-kind wins. Hit 5 grannies in a single payline and you’ll take home a tidy 550x cash prize. Even if you bet a mere 5p per line, that’s £412.50! Another good symbol to look out for is the wood-chopper. Of course, there’s the four-figure jackpot to aspire to. At the time of writing, the jackpot stands at £3,000. From our experience, most mFortune progressive jackpots usually climb to about £4,000 to £10,000 before a lucky someone swoops right in.
Of course, there are the typical wild and scatter symbols. The Wild symbol substitutes for every symbol except the bonus game symbols while the Free Spins Mushroom symbol awards 5 to 9 free spins.

mFortune is known all over the slot kingdom for their mini games. There are two in Little Red Riding Reels – Go to Granny’s and Grabba Goodie. Multipliers from 8x to 400x.
The first of the two games puts you in the footsteps of the Little Red Riding Hood yourself. There’s a game board that resembles the trail that Little Red Riding Hood must follow to reach her Granny’s house. To move, you’ll spin a little fortune wheel in place of a dice. If your spinner lands on a multiplier, you’ll get to move forward one place and live to play another round. What is life without some setbacks? You could also land on the “Step Back” symbol, which takes you one step back, or the mean Wolf who promptly ends the game.
Your aim in this mini game is to stay on the trail for as long as possible! The trail is lined with lots of cash multipliers, ranging from 8x to 100x. The size of the multipliers depends on how many bonus symbols you triggered before the mini game started. Every spot takes you closer to the grand prize – a 400x multiplier!
The second mini game is titled Grabba Goodie. This one’s slightly less lucrative with only 6x to 80x multipkiers. You’ll pick one of the 10 baskets presented to you. Eight of them contain treats (multipliers) while two of them contain fish bones. Every time you pick up a treat, you’ll get to pick another multiplier. If you successfully accumulate all eight of these multipliers, your bank balance grows quite a bit. You’ll want to avoid the fish bones as best you can, as these baskets end your mini game.
The bonus games are triggered very, very frequently. You only need two bonus symbols on the board, in any location on the reels. I’ll be completely honest with you. These bonus games will never bring in the big bucks. I’ve triggered them five times in a single gaming session and only earned about 10x my wager each time.

Little Red Riding Reels has cartoon-y graphics to match its childhood story theme. The characters seem to have walked out of a storybook. Don’t forget the cheery theme music playing in the background too! Another thing I appreciate about the game is its petite size. The mobile app that you have to download was a mere 17MB in size, which means that I could download it on spotty Internet and onto an older mobile phone too. You can play while offline, deposit via SMS and just get right into playing. The game is also available on your desktop Internet browsers.
Don’t forget to redeem your £8 bonus
As usual, mFortune Casino offers a free £8 bonus to try this new game; no deposit required. You’ll get to keep all of the winnings too – it has zero wagering requirements and absolutely no terms and conditions! There’s absolutely nothing to lose and lots to gain. This bonus is only available to players who are new to mFortune Casino. However, if you’re an existing player, the deposit-match bonuses are just as good. You’ll get an additional 10% on top of every deposit that you make. All of these bonuses are tied to a mega-generous 1x wagering requirement. In contrast to those 30x wagering requirements, mFortune is practically giving away free money!
Little Red Riding Reels is a light and easy-going game. It doesn’t bombard you with flashy animations or complex game mechanics. Instead, it’s quite like snuggling in at night with a bedtime story. I mean, you can’t go wrong with a progressive jackpot, simple mini games with multipliers and free spins. To play Little Red Riding Reels, hop over to mFortune Casino and download the free Android or iPhone app onto your mobile device.
