The online slots with the best background stories are usually those based on actual stories. Below are a few online slots, based on famous children’s books.
Goldilocks and the Wild Bears
Goldilocks and the Wild Bears offers an interesting take on the classic fairy tale “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”. In the fairy tale, Goldilocks is depicted as a greedy little girl. There were three bears living in a house in the woods: a papa bear, mama bear, and a baby bear. One morning they decided to take a walk to give their breakfast porridge some time to cool off. While they were away Goldilocks found their house. She knocked and when no one answered, she went inside. She was hungry so she sat down to eat. She ate a spoon from mama and papa’s bowls, but finished baby bear’s porridge. She then went to sleep in baby bear’s bed. As they came back and noticed that someone was in the house, papa bear growled. He startled Goldilocks and she ran away.
However, in the slot that you can click to see now, players get to see Goldilocks taunting the wild bears and helping you win prizes tastier than any bowl of porridge. It features all the characters from the fairy tale and special symbols such as multiplier wilds, free spins and expanding multipliers.
Big Bad Wolf
The Big Bad Wolf Slot is based on the well-known fairy tale of the three little pigs. In this fairy tale the three pigs built three houses using three different materials. The first pig’s house was made of straw, the second, sticks, and the third bricks. The wolf managed to blow down the first two houses (made of straw and sticks) but he could not blow down the house of brick. The moral of the story is that taking the time to do something right pays off.
However, the slot is played from the wolf’s perspective and your main goal is to blow down the brick house. In order to do this the Blow the House Down feature needs to be activated. Landing 6 moons will activate this feature. Symbols include the three little pigs and the big bad wolf.
This slot is based on the classic tale by Robert Louis Stephenson. The main character is Jim, a young boy, who lived with his parents at an inn in England. When Billy Bones, an old sea captain, dies at the inn Jim and his mother opens his chest and finds a map and a logbook. When they hear people outside they quickly leave with the documents. The map leads to a treasure buried on a faraway island. On the Island Jim witnesses a murder and also ends up killing someone. They return home with the treasure but Jim has nightmares and swears off treasure hunting.
The slot design really nailed this theme. Features include Pirate Attack, which is triggered by lining up two or more Barrel Wild symbols, and Treasure Hunt, where you have to find Ben Gunn’s cave for wins.
If you are looking to get lost in a slot with a great back story, give these a try. Enjoy!
