The wombat says: NetEnt returns with the second installment in its Fairy Tale Legends series, but this time with Hansel and Gretel. The next game launched after this? That’ll be the Scruffy Duck slot, but back to Handel & Gretel- we digress.
The fairy tale theme is a very popular one with games developer’s and this re-telling of the classic Brothers Grimm story is nicely done. It also comes with a whopping 7, YES 7 bonus features extras! Let’s take a look.
Look and Feel
Like most NetEnt slots, Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel is another good-looking game. Set in a magical forest (reminds us of the Theatre of Night slot but with better graphics)- there’s loads of 3D design graphics and visual effects with fairies fluttering about around throwing the sparkling magic dust on the reels, and the twins cheering and jumping when you get the winning combos! The soundtrack completes this forest adventure and creates a truly mysterious and magical slot.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 paylines. The symbols on the magical reels are made up of the fairytale duo Hansel and Gretel (who reminds us of the girl in the Robyn slot machine, she gets about), plus 4 lower-value coloured candy symbols and the Fairytale Legends logo.
The Wild in the game is the Fairytale Legends logo, but more on that later… Plus, there’s also a Treasure Chest which acts as the game’s Scatter. Land 3x of these on reels 1, 3 and 5 during the same spin and you’ll trigger off the bonus round.
Stacked Wild Re-Spins
Stacked Wild symbols in the slot will land on the 2nd and 4th reels in the base game and will score you a Re-Spin! During the re-spins more Stacked wilds will appear on the 1st and 5th reels. They will also turn sticky during the whole Stacked Wild Re-Spin feature helping you to scoop better winning combos!
Candy House Bonus
It’s a pick ’em game Wombat Fans! Here you must choose 3 from a possible 15 items, each one with its own hidden multiplier cash prize. Once you’ve picked 3x multipliers and revealed what’s underneath, you’ll receive the average value of all 3 of the multipliers.
Random Fairy Features
The Fairy from Red Riding Hood is making an here in appearance on Hansel and Gretel too, in 3 different randomly triggered features;
Fairy Wonder Spin A random cluster of 5-9 FL logo symbols are placed on reels 2, 3 & 4 with reel 3 always being fully stacked with FL logo symbols. The reminder are placed randomly on reels 2 and 4.
Fairy Wild Spin Two full stacks of WILDS can randomly appear on 1, 2, 4 and / or 5. A Sticky Wild Re-Spin starts after the initial spin and continues until now further new stacked Wilds appear on the next spin.
Fairy Surprise This nice little feature activates randomly at any time after a non-winning spin. One symbol is randomly chosen and the fairy is turns all other symbols on the screen into the same symbol(except the FL symbol) until a you grab a win!
