A tangle with 1 x 2 Gaming’s Faerie Nights slot gave me a break from the BBQ and a chance to try and heat up my piggy bank with some unexplained magical cash.
Wands and glitter aren’t always this Wombat’s go-to outfit but, then again, I can’t resist a touch of the magical. I have just got off the Wish Master slot as it happens, so call me Tinkerbell and let’s find out what these crazy winged folk can teach a marsupial like me!
This slot packs a very tidy Free Spins game and lots of special symbols that are exclusive to different gaming modes which can help you on your way to some tidy winnings.
Look and Feel
Set in the shadows of a woodland glade, the reels are set in a twisted wooden frame. You’ll notice on each side of the reels there are tiny houses of fairies and other sprites. This isn’t your average woodland jaunt; this is the real magical deal. 1×2 are making some great looking games like the “I am the Law slot” and this game certainly doesn’t let the side down.
I love that this game has a day and night mode for the base and bonus game- watch out for the lighting change-even some of the icons will flip modes.
Faerie Nights Slot Game Play
Faerie Nights slot is set over 3 rows, 5 reels and 25 paylines. That’s quite a few more than traditional games like the Super Fruits Wild slot from Inspired gaming and other games.
The icons on the reels will have you rubbing your eyes in disbelief! Watch out for a glowing pink toadstool, a blue flower, a butterfly, a grinning elf and a green-haired sprite. There’s even a unicorn with a purple mane. It all takes me back to my days in Sydney in the seventies!
The Ace through Jack of the card deck made out in twisted woodland branches and flowers are the lower value icons in this other-worldly slot.
There are also special symbols that only appear in the base or bonus games, that is day or night in the glade.
We’ve all watched Lord of the Rings and seen the damage that those tree men Ents can cause right? Well, one of those arboreal dudes has only gone rogue and turned up on the reels of this magical little number!
The Ent shows up in the base game only and acts as an Expanding Wild subbing for all other base game icons and spreading the winning joy. A peachy themed fairy is the base game’s Scatter and will deliver you into the bonus game.
By night, that’s the bonus game to you Wombat Fans, there’s a weird blue light- apparently a whisp! This whisp is a Transforming Wild that lands in place and stays there for the feature. Another blue fairy brings treasures in her wake. When this fairy lands she brings a handy x2 multiplier to your line win. Who knew wearing a nightie and wings could be so rewarding? I hung out with plenty of fairies in my seventies Sydney days that I mentioned earlier, but none like these!
Just lure 3, 4 or 5 of those peachy fairies on to the reel and trigger the Free Spins mode and you will get 7, 9 or 11 free games respectively. Don’t forget that in this mode there’s the Transforming Wild whisp and the Multiplier fairy on hand too.
Despite being at first unsure about adventuring in the realm of the fairy folk, the Faerie Nights slot ended up giving me some decent Free Spins. And the Transforming and Expanding Wilds were just what this Wombat needed. Who doesn’t need a sprite bringing you multipliers as you game?
Wombat Score: 4 out of 5
This cracker has just the right amount of sparkly magic.
