We’ve got silver, we’ve got Epic Gems and yes, we also have Pixie Gold here at Wombat Towers!
Blonde dryads in skimpy costumes and fairytale forest lands inhabited by mystical little creatures – this can mean only one thing Wombat Fans: yes, it’s time for yet another slot set in an enchanted wood- it’s brighter than a Joker Jester slot machine! (well, almost). Before you roll your eyes, there’s one very big draw in Pixie Gold slot from Lightning Box that makes it different from its theme rivals – and that is the Reelfecta reels.
Basically there are a set of mini-reels on either side of the main reel that also spin with every revolution, and this means you’re playing on a grid of 3 x 3 x 16 x 3 x 3. This innovative layout means many more chances to win, so let’s fire up these funky new reels!
Look and Feel
Gold fairy dust and a mouse pulling a chariot – was the games designer on acid when he created this slot? The graphics aren’t the worst we’ve seen but not the best either, but we quite like the jaunty soundtrack.
Pixie Gold is an 8 reel slot with between 3 and 4 rows on an asymmetric layout. It’s also a ‘1296 ways to win’ game which means that you won’t need to worry about pay-lines like most other games, simply line up matching symbols anywhere on the reels from left to right, to right to left and you’ll win. If you consider that standard 5 reel games with 3 rows like the Fantasini slot have 243 Ways to Win, that’s a whole lot more opportunities to build winning combinations! Well, it’s more complicated than that. Lightning Box count those middle 4 reels as the 3rd reel. To make up a win, you just need to get a symbol somewhere in there, not necessarily on each column. You’ll get the hang of it once you start playing, honest!
There are 6 high value symbols on your reels and they include; a moustachioed King with big eyebrows, a mushroom house, a snail, a ladybird, a magical little green pouch and a pair of acorns, while the 9, J, Q & K make up your lower values.
The blonde pixie is your Wild in the game and will land only on reel 3 during the base game. She will also substitute for all other symbols except the golden King Star symbol; as this little beauty is the Scatter and will set off the bonus feature.
The Reelfecta can form part of winning combos with the other reels but only using one of the 16 symbols on show. It’s a fast-moving game and can be a bit hard to get your head round, so hold on to your hats!
Pixie Gold Free Spins
As you’re spinning the reels you’ll notice a carriage moving along underneath the reels being dragged by a tired-looking mouse; if the carriage lines up directly underneath the golden King Star symbol, you’ll set off the Free Spins. Well, actually it’s just one free spin but there’ll be a Pixie Wild on reels 2 and 3 which almost guarantees you a decent win, plus a ‘lucky’ symbol will be randomly awarded, too. The feature is set off quite often so you won’t need to set autoplay to 500 spins for it to happen, which is always nice.
Feeling like lucky Wombats? Then click on the hearts and clubs icon below the reels. Pick the right suit and/or colour of a face-down card after a win to double or quadruple your prize. Good luck!
This ‘Reelfecta’ malarkey might sound a bit complicated, so we’ll break it down for you once more: It’s made up of 8 reels, with reels 1, 2, 7 and 8 each having 3 rows of symbols, and the middle 4 reels all having 4 rows of symbols. Got it? This unique feature in Pixie Gold slot is fun, but fans of more simple game play might just find it annoying. Overall, the small and frequent wins make this perfectly playable, so try it our for size.
