Slot designers use a variety of sources when they are working out the theme for their new games. It can be from movies or books, based on certain parts of the world or they can go back to the rich source of material that can be found in Fairy Tales. That is what NetEnt have done with ‘Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel’ and it’s a great game that gives its players great chances to get big wins.
This is a five-reel game that has a total of ten pay-lines that will hopefully be packed with wins for you. It can be played on your PC but also on your mobile devices so you can take this game with you wherever you wish to go.
This is the second Fairytale Legends slot game from NetEnt following in the footsteps of Red Riding Hood. It’s certainly packed with bonus features so this is great fun to play. It has a great look to it with Hansel and Gretel in the woods with the moon shining down on them. The reels are transparent which is always a nice touch.
Those ten pay-lines are a fixed amount so you have no option but to play that number on each spin of the reels. You do have to work out what your stake is going to be and that’s an important decision to make. The minimum amount you can wager on one spin of the reels is 0.10 and the maximum a total of 200. Just ensure you play at a level you are comfortable with.
Symbols in the game include Hansel and Gretel of course, birds, the game logo, and a variety of different types of coloured candy, all very tempting of course. The wild symbol is a load of candy that has a bird pecking at it and can substitute for other symbols apart from the bonus symbol. There’s more chance of the wild helping to get you several wins as the wild is stacked but only appears on the second and fourth reels in the base game. Whenever one makes an appearance you receive a re-spin and if another stacked wild appears then another re-spin occurs. This continues until no more stacked wilds make an appearance on a re-spin. This can certainly help boost your account balance.
There are three features that are randomly triggered during the base game. The Fairy Wonder Spin feature is triggered when between five and nine of the game logo symbols end up on the reels at the end of a spin. You can get wins of up to 400 times your stake here. Then there’s the Fairy Surprise feature which can appear anytime during the base game if a spin doesn’t produce a win. A symbol is randomly chosen and other symbols can turn into that chosen one to give you winning combinations.
Also in this action-packed slot, there’s the Fairy Wild Spin feature in which two full stacks of wilds can appear on all the reels apart from the centre one. This then triggers the Stacked Wild Re=Spin feature, more about that in a moment. The treasure chest bonus symbol will trigger the main bonus features if appearing on the odd numbered reels during the base game.
There are three bonus features, let’s start with the Candy House Bonus feature. This is a pick ‘em game where you have to choose three of 15 items, all of which contain a multiplier of varying sizes. You have a decision to make here, do you go for the average value of the three multipliers revealed or pick one of the three. It’s possible to win 120x your total stake here.
The Coin Win feature awards you a win that is 15x your total stake while the Free Spins feature awards you with 10 free games. During those free games, there are more bonus symbols and it’s possible to receive more free spins. The stacked wilds are now on all the reels apart from the third and can trigger the Stacked Wilds Re-Spin feature to get you more wins.
If you enjoy playing this slot, there are other games out there that offer similar gameplay. For example, there’s ‘Mad Pinatas’ from Leander which also offers ten free spins with a 1x multiplier with the chance to win some more but has a wild that appears on all of the reels. Also give a try to the Ash Gaming slot ‘Ghost Train Fairground Features’ which has a good number of bonus features and has stacked wilds in the free spins round.
This is certainly an action-packed game with something seeming to be going on wherever you look. It’s a brilliantly produced game and the soundtrack adds a great deal to your enjoyment of this slot. The game is full of bonus features and there are plenty of ways to get big wins so don’t delay to give this game a go. There’s a lot happening in this game so make sure you check out the paytable and have some free games.
