If you want a slot that’s going to transport you to your happy place, then you’re gonna love Goldwyn’s Fairies slot! This game, released by the “Just for The Win” slots team via the Microgaming network is all about escapism into the realm of adventure and fantasy along with other titles like the Rift slot and Hansel and Gretel. You are the eponymous Goldwyn, and a bevy of buxom fairy playmates are your reel-riding companions, the fabled Goldwyn’s Fairies of the game’s title.
I could not wait to join this cheeky impish world – would I live up to my legend at Goldwyn and lead the fairy folk in a slot adventure? Or would I end up back in the world of the everyday, the goblin of the piece? I couldn’t wait to dust off my fairy wings and take to a flight of fancy!
Look and feel
Goldwyn’s Fairies slot has crystal-clear graphics that make for top notch play and enjoyment. The drawings are beautiful -it’s on the same level as the Six Acrobats slot we’d say: the game is set against a background of dark green tangled woodland, the secret land of the fairies where these sylvan characters appear. The reels are set in a swirling golden frame and are given space for you to admire the icons, which look like something out of an animated movie: a riot of sparkle and colour.
There are nice little extras like a win being celebrated with a shower of golden coins on the reels. The soundtrack is upbeat and jolly, I enjoyed the rise and fall of the music; it zones you into the gameplay.
Goldwyn’s Fairies has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 pa-ylines.
The high value icons are four athletic and perfectly coiffured fairies representing each of the seasons which is reflected in their appearance. The lower value icons are four massive colourful fairy gems, you’ll feel like your in the same kind of zone as when you’re playing the Well of Wonders slot -it’s got that magical feel about it.
This slot is all about the Wild play. This game has the classic Wild, the word Wild in golden twirly fairy script, which substitutes for all symbols (except for the Re-spin icon). But there are also more Wild tricks up its sleeve with a very welcome Re-spin Wild, (a crown-wearing blond fairy in a yellow dress), and a Free Spin Wild feature, (the same blond fairy with the word Wild).
The Re-spin Wild comes into play when you get that Re-spin Wild fairy showing up on reel 3, during this mode, classic Wilds that land across the reels stick as Returning Wilds. You stay in the re-spin mode until the Re-spin Wilds stop landing on the reels.
The Free Spin Wild mode starts when you get lucky and get that little beauty to show up on reels 1, 3 and 5. When this happens you get awarded a very merry 10 free spins. During this play 9 of these spins has a Returning Wild feature – during the 10th spin Returning Wilds turn back into classic Wilds.
Goldwyn’s Fairies was a fun adventure – it looks brilliant and the Wilds features definitely kept me focused on the game. Those Returning Wild feature during the Re-spin and Free Spin modes also keep you on your twinkle toes! If you like the fantasy genre of slots and like a game that offers up multiple features then Goldwyn Fairies might be the romp for you!
