The fairy tale of Red Riding Hood has been told for years throughout many different cultures. Red Riding Hood steps into the mysterious forest. She has to take the freshly baked pies to her grandma but the bad wolf has other ideas. Ohh and let’s not forget the brave huntsman who saves the day in the end. Red Cap by Endorphina presents our favourite childhood fairytale in a more adult-like manner. Let’s see if this story has a happy ending.
Red Cap is a 5 reel slot, that focuses on classical game style. No overly complicated features or rules, just some good old Free Spins and Wilds. Besides the delicious pies, Little Red Riding Hood also has some pretty wins in her basket, as the slot has a good 1700x max win potential. We are excited to see, what has Endorphina cooked up this time.
In its core, Red Cap is a very simple game, it's not overly complicated, so you can easily just jump straight in and start spinning. Red Cap doesn’t come with anything that we haven’t seen before, but in the competitive online casino scene, it is hard to come up with something revolutionary all the time. The Red Riding Hood is all grown up now, as Endorphina have decided to give our hero a “womanlier” look, surely attracting more than just wolves now. Red Cap low paying symbols haven't received much of an overhaul, just a little gold trim and shine. Not much of a disappointment, but it would have been great if they were styled more accordingly to the theme. Additionally, to these come 5 senior symbols, which makes it 10 symbols in total. Top paying ones are two different berries, the wolf, huntsman, granny and Red Riding Hood herself, which is a wild symbol. Scatter symbol is a basket of delicious looking pies. Warning, don’t play this game while hungry, speaking from experience here. Red Cap comes with some fair and solid stats. Slot’s RTP is 96%, which is pretty much the exact average industry rating. The Red Cap volatility setting hasn’t been publicly disclosed, but it seems to play on a medium to high volatility setting. Red Cap paylines are 20, so another straight forward stat. For what seems to be a very regular slot, Red Cap comes with a very satisfying max win of 1700x. All in all, what you see is what you get, a perfect slot if you like classical, proven things.
Red Cap is not full of bonus features, more precisely, there is only one bonus feature, which is Free Spins. This follows a very standard game model, where acquiring 3 scatters is the main goal of the game. Modern video slots are starting to present from 2-3 bonus features on average, so Red Cap’s offer of one might give some of you a sour face. But, if executed properly, a single feature might be all that you need. The bonus game starts with 10 Free Spins. There is a chance to retrigger a bonus if you land 3 scatters again. During the bonus game, every wild symbol expands to cover the whole reel. This will give you that extra edge to move closer to that 1700x Red Cap payout. Expanding happens only when wins can be gained, which makes sense.
There is not much bad to say about Red Cap slot. Sure, it’s quite simple and it follows a very standard game model, but there is nothing wrong with that, as this sort of model is well tested and proven to be very rewarding. Of course, if you are looking for a unique experience and many elaborate features, then Red Cap might not be your number one choice. Overall, we enjoyed the design and the fairy tale theme, so Endorphina definitely deserves some credit for their Red Cap slot.
