Faerie Spells Slot
The Faerie Spells slot is a brand new 3D slot for 2019 from Betsoft Gaming with a magical fantasy theme full of magic toadstools (otherwise known as Amanita muscaria), faerie queens, jackpot potions, and faerie treasure.
Faeries Spells plays on a 5x3 reel set with 10 pay lines in the base game and with a 5x4, 1024 ways to pay set up in the bonus round. It’s a medium variance game with an RTP of 96.03% and can be played from €0.10 to €100 per spin. Faerie spells offers free spins, progressive jackpots and a “buy-a-bonus” feature and as a result, this is a new slot worth finding out about.
Design and Symbols
Faerie Spells is a beautiful looking slot set in the midst of a colourful enchanted forest. The reels sparkle with fairy dust as they spin the beautifully drawn fairies, insects, flora and fauna symbols. The symbols float but for a border of green leafed twine. Above the game, board are four jackpot panels. The background of twisted trees and large, colourful plants complete the enchanted forest look.
The low-value symbols are the standard J-A with the higher value symbols represented by a mix of woodland creatures and magical beings and objects. Symbols include dragon and butterflies, magic toadstools, trees, and fairies. The highest value regular symbol is the purple faerie with 5 on a pay line worth 75x the bet size. The faerie queen triggers the bonus round and the wild is the forest king. The forest king is the highest paying symbol of all with 5 on a pay line worth 100x the bet size.
The bonus game has its own set of symbols including different coloured coins, jewelry, potions, and a diamond scatter symbol. As a result of the 1024 ways to pay a mechanic and new symbols, there is also a second complete pay table. The ruby brooch is the highest paying regular symbol here with 5 of a kind worth 7.5x the bet size.
As well as the bonus round (free spins) there are four progressive jackpots, a diamond scatter and a magic toadstool feature. Furthermore, there is a “buy-a-feature” option.
In Faerie Spells base game the magic toadstools each have a cash prize attached. The cash prizes are only released if the faerie queen is also on the reels. Toadstools also have a standard value for 3 or more on a pay line.
If you’re prepared to pay 86x the bet size you can buy into the free spin round with 25 spins, therefore negating the need to play the base game.
Faerie Queen Free Spins
Land 3, 4, or 5 faerie queens to earn 10, 15, or 25 free spins (or simply buy 25 spins for 86x bet size). The board will transform into a 5x4 reel set with 1024 ways-to-pay and different symbols as described above. During the free spins, two additional features become available, the 4 jackpots and diamond scatter feature.
During free spins, potion symbols may land from time to time. There are four different potions, each representing a different progressive jackpot (riches, wealth, luxury, and plenty). When a potion lands, the corresponding potion bottle to the left of the game board fills a little more. After the potion lands, the symbol will explode and the reel will cascade to reveal a new symbol. A full bottle results in the corresponding jackpot win.
Secret Faerie Treasure
Diamond symbols explode after landing and any reel with an exploded diamond will cascade to reveal a new symbol. If a win has landed on the same spin as a diamond it will pay twice, once as it lands and again after the diamond reel has cascaded. Diamonds also pay as a normal symbol with 5 in a row paying 50x the bet size.
Our Thoughts on the Faerie Spells Slot
Betsoft has delivered on all fronts with Faerie Spells. There are great visuals, a base game with decent wins, plenty of features, and 4 jackpots, including a big one. If I were to pick holes I’d say that at best this is of medium volatility so it may not appeal to the serious gamblers, but for anybody else, this should appeal in one way or another.
