Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel (NetEnt) Review
We continue to review the new slots from NetEntertainment. Today's slot machine is “Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel”. This is the second Fairytale Legends slot game after Red Riding Hood. Apparently the provider intends to keep launching titles based on the old, well known, fairy tales. Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel has a release date on 24.4.2017. Upon release, players will be able to access the slot game, initially, on Casumo, and later on almost all other major online casinos.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel is a 5 reels and 10 paylines slot machine. Players can win both ways on the slot. So winning combos can be both from left to right and right to left. The slot is available on desktop, tablet, as well as most other mobile devices. The min and max bets players can lay – range from 0.10 to 200, depending on the currency played. The coin size ranges from 0.01 to 1. As the name suggests, the theme takes inspiration from the famous fairytale with the same name. The casino slot has the same design as it’s predecessor “Red Riding Hood”. The two kids, Hansel & Gretel, are the main characters. The background, shows them both heading on a creep forest during a full moon.
There are only 3 high value symbols on this slot game. The symbols feature Hansel, Gretel and the Fairytale Legends logo. The logo is the highest paying symbols and 5 of them on a winning line will award 40x the stake. Candy pieces with diferent colors, make up the low value symbols. The scatter symbol is a big blue chest which only lands on reels 1, 3 and 5. The wild symbol is a brick wall with a bird on top, which substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter. The wild always lands stacked on the reels. Wilds can only land on reels 2 and 4, during the base game. This can change with the activation of the game’s features.
Stacked Wild Re-Spin feature
This feature triggers whenever a stacked wild symbol covers either reels 2 or 4. The player will get a respin with the wild locked in lace. During the respin, wilds can also land on reels 1 and 5. If the player gets another stacked wild , he/she will get another re-spin. These continue until no more stacked wilds land on the re-spin.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel has 3 feature that can randomly trigger during the base game. A fairy will appear and give one of the following awards:
- Fairy Wonder Spin feature – The fairy will appear and award up to 9 Fairytale Legends logo symbols. These symbols will appear in the form of a cluster, on the reels, during a spin.
- Fairy Surprise feature – The fairy can magically appear on screen following an unsuccessful spin and with a wave of her wand choose a symbol at random. Starting with the lowest value gemstone, symbols will then morph into the chosen symbol. This continues until the transformed symbols make a winning combination.
- Fairy Wild Spin feature – 2 Stacked wild symbols will apar on any of the reels. After the win a respin will also take place with the wilds still in place.
Players can trigger the bonus feature by landing 3 scatter chests on reels 1, 3 and 5. When the chest land, the player will have to pick one of them. Each chest hides an award.
- Coin Win - awards a cash prize and is the least lucrative of the 3 awards.
- Candy House - This is a picking minigame where the player will have to choose 3 sweets from the gingerbread house. Each candy hides a multiplier. The goal is to collect the highest multipliers possible.
- Free Spins - Picking this award will give 10 free spins. During the free spins, stacked wilds can land on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5. During the free spins the Stacked Wild Re-Spin feature is also active. Players can retrigger the free spins, or get extra spins, by landing additional bonus symbols during the free spins.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel is a medium volatility slot machine with an RTP of 96.71%. The game is pretty similar to it’s predecessor, when it comes to mechanics, design and gameplay. This is not necessarily bad, as the first Fairytale Legends was a very high quality casino slot. Moreover, the numerous new features and slick animations, allow for a fun slot with great potential. That’s why we can’t wait for Friday to come so we can try the new slot either on Casumo, LeoVegas etc.
