Little Red Riding Hood is a slot game adaptation of a similarly named European legend. According to the fairy tale; a human-eating wolf named Big Bad Wolf tricks an innocent girl named Little Red Riding Hood (named so for wearing a red shawl with a hood)—she is taking food to her ill grandmother, whom the wolf eats alongside her—but, fortunately, a helpful lumberjack slays the sleepy wolf and removes them from its belly. One symbol (the girl) requires three combinations, while another symbol (the food basket) requires a single appearance. Eleven symbols Big Bad Wolf, bed, cottage, axe, hat alongside spectacles, A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9) require three, four, or five winning combinations.

The Little Red Riding Hood software slightly differs across platforms. For instance; on a mobile device, it may not be accessible if “auto-rotate” mode is on, thereby prompting players to resume portrait mode to play it. On a mobile; the “pays”, “sound”, “auto”, and “stake’ buttons are blue and situated on either side of the green “spin”. On a desktop; the blue “stake”, brown “paytable”, purple “auto” and green “spin” are spread along the bottom. The customizable autoplay games support up to 100 rounds or up to $1000.00 loss limit.
The sounds are magical. The background includes a spiderweb on a disused oil lamp, old furniture, clogs, burning candle, and a wolf hiding in the beddings; the animated 3D graphics are appealing, especially the glitter exploding purple sparkles and shapeshifting werewolf during blood moon.
