The Wombat says: The makers of Gonzo’s Quest and Aloha Cluster Pays slot Mayhem slot are stepping into Fairytale land with Red Riding Hood slot.
Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood is a 5-reel, 20 payline slot set deep in the dark woods, and sees our heroine Red wandering along the reels to get to her grandma’s house before the Big Bad Wolf licks his chops and eats her up.
Well, you know the story, surely. This is one of those feel good games like the Secrets of Christmas video slot (also by NetEnt). You know the ones that make you go “ahhhhhhh”.
Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood Slot Graphics
This Wombat likes the design of the Red Riding Hood slot with its full screen graphic treatment, complete with shooting stars and fluffy clouds. And as the for the woodland birdsong soundtrack, well it nearly put this old marsupial into a zen-like trance. Snore. The colours on this game have that bright fluorescent feel to them.
Spins and Bonuses
Red Riding Hood’s sweet little face on a Wild Symbol will substitute for all other symbols on the reels.
Sticky Wild Respin
Now this is tricky to explain… Get two or more Wilds on the reels in the main game and they’ll become sticky – plus you’ll get a re-spin. But the best bit? It just keeps on going, even when other Sticky Wilds turn up after the re-spin, it will retrigger.
Free Spins You’ll need 3 treasure chests on the reels to trigger your 10 free spins.
But once you do, every treasure chest that turns up during your bonus gives you another two more spins. Get comfy, this could take a while!
Coin Win Oooh the elusive coin bonus. If a golden penny win spills out of the treasure chest coffers and onto your reels, you’ll pick up a multiplier! 15x your bet…
Beware of the Wolf We think Beware of The Wolf is coolest of the bonus features. It works a bit like a board game and is triggered when a Bonus symbol appears on reels 1, 3 or 5. Red Riding Hood casually journeys to her granny’s house, picking up multipliers all along the way and trying to fend off the advances of love-starved Wolf.
Well there’s a lot of these…
Fairy Magic Spin The magic sprite will conjure up a handful of random medium value symbols – like the shield, key, rose, storybook and FL logo – to help you get a bigger win. Nice lady
Fairy Wild Spin In this bonus, our floaty fairy will wave her wand to give you 3 or 4 wilds on the middle reels, plus an extra Sticky Wild Re-Spin after your win has been paid. If more Sticky Wilds turn up on the screen, then they’ll just keep on coming…
Fairy Surprise This one’s a cracker, and sees the super-kind fairy select a random symbol for you after you’ve lost a spin. Your other symbols will turn into the same one until you get a payline win!
There’s a few too many bonus features for our liking, which means the base game can feel a bit lacklustre. And there’s only so many Sticky Wilds you can handle… But we do think the Fairy Features are a really unique touch, and the game is very easy in the eye, whether you are playing on your mobile, tablet or desktop.
