The wombat says: What’s weird and old looking? Well, aside from this wombat’s mother-in-law, it’s Enchanted Woods slot from Microgaming- those nice people behind the Mystic Dreams slot and others. But don’t be put off by (yet another) fantasy-themed slot, as this beauty is an oldie but a goodie.
This game pays homage to classic slots but instead of cherries or Lucky 7s littering your reels, this has a magical woodland theme and your screen is jam-packed with slightly creepy-looking fairies and wizards…there are no leprechauns though! You’ll have to head to our Rainbow Riches game– an Irish classic- if you want to see some of those little fellas.
Grab your witch’s hat, and let’s play.
Look and Feel
Enter deep into the forest Wombat fans to an enchanted realm where hand drawn fairies, magic-mushroom eating wizards, and big fat toads roam.
Old gnarled trees make up the dark and moody background to Enchanted Wood slot (along with goblins and toadstools) meanwhile the soundtrack is eerie and freaks this wombat out a bit to be honest.
It reminds us of the ‘eeek eeeek eeek’ music from Hitchcock’s Psycho. All in all, a bit on the weird side.
Enchanted Woods Game Play
This 5-reel slot has 1 pay-line. Yep, that’s right: there’s just one active pay-line in the game- 29 less then the Wild Birthday Blast slot and 49 less than others we’ve played.
BUT it does have a HOLD button. ‘What on earth?’ I hear you cry Wombat Fans! Well, hang on a second, let me clear things up. In Enchanted Woods slot there is an awesome and quite unique HOLD feature where any of the reels can be held in place after every spin. Winning combos will automatically be made sticky too, which means you have more chances to scoop wins.
Your symbols on the reels are made up of a whole load of leprechauns, gnomes, blue and yellow fairies, imps, elves and toadstools, while keep your eyes peeled for the Wild in the game who is the Pink Fairy. She will land only on reels 2 and 4 to substitute for all other symbols on the reels, AND she is the highest-paying symbol, too – paying out 70 coins for x5 of them.
The Scatter symbols in Enchanted Wood slot is the great big fat green Toad. Land 3x of these amphibious Scatter symbols anywhere on the payline and you’ll set off the bonus feature (but don’t expect any Free Spins).
Enchanted Wood Bonus Game
It’s second screen time for you Wombat Fans! All you have to do her is choose from a possible 10 magical (and quite frankly ugly-looking) toads all of which are perched in the branches of the ancient tree. Depending on the number of Scatters you landed in the first place during the base game, you will get to pick either 3, 4 or 5 tree toads that will all reveal some chunky bonus prizes. Hurrah for toads!
It’s a strange old slot this one, with its creepy graphics and single payline. And while the unique HOLD feature makes this very simple game fairly enjoyable, it’s still a bit of a dinosaur compares to more recent slots. We missed Free Spins and in all honesty felt that the slot would benefit from an update. Fans of more old fashioned games give it a go!
Wombat score: 3/5
This slot is no longer available at Wombat Casino. Sorry about that chaps!
