Graphics and Symbols
The title big bear symbol is the game’s wild symbol. It will only ever land on the second and fourth reels. A drum serves as the scatter symbol in Big Bear.
Big Bear – Big Bonuses
Three of the drum symbol on the reels triggers free spins. The more drums are on the reels, the more free spins players get. Anytime they win free spins players have three options to choose from. They can play 10, 15 or 20 free spins. The 10 free spins come with multipliers. The number of multipliers players get is based on wilds landing on the second and/or fourth reels with a winning combination.
20 free spins come with a multiplier that doubles a player’s winnings. This happens when a winning combination includes the wild symbol on the second or fourth reels. Players’ winnings are quadrupled when they get the wild on the second and fourth reels.
The best part of the free spins feature is that it can be retriggered. This gets players as many as 40 spins for free. Players should also understand exactly how powerful the wild is during free spins. The game has a feature called hold and extra spin. When a wild appears on a reel, that reel is locked while the others are spun again. The luckiest players will get enough wilds that they win 36 times the amount they would have won otherwise.
Its graphics aren’t as impressive as its bonuses, but they are fun to look at. Filling the reels with (in the case of the lion) animated symbols is a nice little visual perk. Overall, this game is energetic enough to keep players on their toes. With the various options for playing free spins, Big Bear makes the game as interactive as it could ever be.
