Being able to play one of your favourite fairy tales from when you were young is sure to bring back nostalgic memories. ‘Goldilocks and the Wild Bears’ rehashes the story of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears' over 5 reels of delight. Quickspin have done well to provide an awesome package that balances all the aspects of slot gameplay, including the graphics, sounds, features, and format, in order to provide a slot game that will not only win you real money, but provide top class entertainment all the way.

The wins are formed over 25 variable paylines, which means that you can dictate your budget completely. Not only will you be able to adjust your bet per line, but how many paylines you want to wager on. This means that the title is suitable both to low and high rollers, alike, accepting bets as low as 0.01 to 250 coins per spin. The low to medium volatility should not be sniggered at by higher risk players, because not all of the wins are miniscule. The 97.84% return to player ratio, makes this the perfect game to relax behind and watch the cash roll in.

Review of Goldilocks and The Wild Bears

At first glance, you cannot help but be impressed by the quality of the visuals. The warm colours and crisp renderings are akin to some of the best animated films provided by companies such as Pixar and Warner Bros. This does well to engage you in the plot of the story, which is taken from the age-old tale of Goldilocks and her invasion on the privacy of three bears who live in the woods. The reels are set on a forest background; it's no wonder that Goldilocks took refuge in the first house she came across, as the poor gal must have been scared stiff in the still woods all alone.
The WILD bear angle to the name of the slot alludes to WILD symbol fun that is up for grabs in the ensemble. The mischievous little munchkin may have met her match with this family of ferocious mammals, and better beat tracks to bring bankroll boosts and cash rolls.
The base game is played with no musical back tones, but the high-quality sound effects do well to raise and lower your blood pressure as the wins are triggered and the chirps of the birds of the forest keep you company throughout. The free spins game, however will introduce some music to capture the moment.
The game symbols do well to bolster the theme of the game, and the quirky animation on the reels from time to time, keep the title light-hearted and fun. The high paying symbols include famous characters from the tale, including: Papa Bear, Mama Bear, Baby Bear, and ironically – Baby Bear’s teddy bear toy. 5x Papa Bears will pay you 250x your line bet, which is really quite good.
The lower paying symbols include familiar card deck symbols, such as ten, jack, queen, king, and Ace, but they are adorned in such a way that they support the woodland theme very well.
There a few special symbols in this game, including two wilds and two bonus symbols:

  • Porridge WILD: The porridge Wild substitutes for all standard symbols to help complete combinations wins. The number of WILDS visible on the screen will add to the value of the multiplier. Watch the porridge bowls above the reels fill with every symbol that lands.
  • Regular WILD: This symbol is represented by the Bear’s house. This icon will merely substitute for all standard symbols to boost combinational wins and if landed in across all reels, could win you the top prize.
  • Goldilocks Scatter: Here, Goldilocks’ face appears on a red background. Landing a combination of three of these symbols will not only pay out 3x your line bet but will also trigger the free spins bonus round.
  • Cheeky Goldilocks Bonus Icon: This is an animated symbol, whereby Goldilocks appears on the blue tile to provoke the bears with her hands to the side of her face, and her tongue out. She only appears in the main feature, and when accumulated, will turn the bears WILD!

Special Features 

The presence of special features and bonus rounds are what have made online slots the most popularly played games at online casinos. The main feature in this ensemble is a benchmark and testament to the amount of fun that can be had with free spins and WILDS in one feature.

Free Spins Bonus Round

Attempting to land this feature can often be quite testing on your patience, as you will frequently land the first two scatter symbols. When this happens, the game focuses all it energy on the 3rd reel. The anticipation builds as the sound effects rise to a crescendo… then… all of a sudden… nothing! This may happen a few times before landing the three triggers on reels 2, 3, and 4, consecutively. When it does land, you will immediately be taken to the cottage of the three bears, where the reels will rest in the sitting room.
Noticeably, the silence in game is broken by an animated tune that ups the tempo and atmosphere of the game.
You will notice the three bears below the reels with collection racks beside each one. Frequently throughout the 10 allotted free spins, Goldilocks will appear on the reels to antagonise the bear family. Each time she appears she will accumulate on the racks below the reels. After several appearances, the various bears will become angry at her teasing antics and turn ‘WILD’ on the reels to bolster the bankroll by providing ferocious wins.

  • 3 Goldilocks’ will make Papa turn WILD every time he appears on the reels.
  • 5 More appearances will turn Mama WILD and trigger 2 free respins.
  • Another 5 appearances will turn Baby WILD, triggering a further 2 free respins.

By the end of the feature, you could sit with a nice run of wins. We managed to win around 40x and 50x regularly, when triggering the feature, which surprisingly does not take to long to come around.


The standard WILD symbol is the catalyst to winning the top prize in this game. Land 5 of the house symbols across a single payline and you will win 1000x your line bet. Should you be playing the max bet, you could walk away with a 10,000 coin win.

Game Verdict

‘Goldilocks and the Wild Bears’ is a truly engaging slot game, with much to play for. The variable payline setup means that you can customise how you want to play, too.

Frequent wins can keep you flush till you hit the main feature, so be sure to pace yourself for the first 50 to 100 spins.

If fairy tales are your cup of tea, then this game is well suited to entertain you. Quickspin are great at bringing your favourite stories to life, so if you want more bedtime story fun, you can try their fabulous Big Bad Wolf slot game based on the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ or give NETENT’s Fairy Tale Legends Red Riding Hood a go. Both titles are sure to give you a quality gaming experience.
