This is game comes with a host of sweet treats to tempt the slot lovers out there who like to sample the magical!

Look and feel
Here we find ourselves in the magical land of stories. NetEnt’s graphics are literally out of this world when it comes to conjuring up a world of colour and charm- we know that from games like the Copy Cats slot, but on Hansel & Gretel they have gone into over-drive.
The reels are set in an atmospheric evening forest with Hansel and Gretel walking on each side of the reels. The two main characters have been created as a cute elfin pair. The otherworldly feel is made complete with moving stars and sparkling lights in the background of play.
Soothing music plays as you play providing a calming feel to game play, much like Fortunes of Sparta and the Legend of Shangri-La, 2 other great games.
Fairytale Legends Hansel and Gretel is a three row, 5 reel and 20 paylines slot game.
The high value icons that you’re gonna want to land are the game’s icon, the letters H and G intertwined in story book script, followed by our pals Hansel and Gretel. The lower value icons of play are a selection of bright coloured jewels in pink, yellow, green and purple.
The game’s Bonus Scatter symbol is a treasure chest. The game has a Stacked Wild symbol that crops up on reels 2 and 4 in the base game, but in the Stacked Wild feature this symbol can also appear on reels 1 and 5 and can trigger a re-spin.
NetEnt are famous for their feature rich games like the Finn & the Swirly Spin slot and Planet of the Apes, and Hansel and Gretal is no different. This game is busting with bonus fun, so what’s up for grabs?
For those of you who like to know what’s in store then there are a cracking three random features that pop up as a nice surprise while you play.
The Fairy Wonder Spin triggers five to nine of the game’s entwined letter logos to arrive randomly across the reels covering some of the icons with a semi-transparent layer which means it makes new higher value symbols create more winning combos-dreamy!
The Fairy Surprise is a cutie. Here a brightly-lit fairy arrives at the reels and she’s got your best interests at heart. If you’ve had no luck on the reels, then after your reels have spun, one random symbol on the reels will become a winning symbol, and those sparkly gems will begin to change into the temporary winning symbol to make your loss into dosh! She’s one hell of a pal that Fairy Surprise!
For those of you who like Wild spins you’ll love the Fairy Wild Spin. Look out on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 as at any point in play, two of the reels can turn totally Wild, making Stacking Wilds and more wins. What’s more after the first Fairy Wild Spin, you get another for kicks- gotta love that fairy fun!
The Bonus fun is triggered by landing that tempting treasure chest icon on reels 1, 3, and 5. Once you’ve managed this, then there are three separate games up for grabs.
There’s the Candy House, a dangerous place according to the fairy story, where they meet the wicked witch. This slot’s all about the treats and here you will be presented with a wall full of 15 coloured gems. Pick three of these to get three different multiplier values. Now the choice is up to you, will you pick the average of the three gem multiplier values combined? – Or choose one of the three to continue with. It’s a gamble after all!
Fairy Free Spins
Free Spins- everyone’s favourite is here for the taking too. To trigger the free spins fun land one, two or three treasure chests you’ll win two, four or a tempting 10 free spins respectively.
Or there’s the Coin Win when you can feel the good times roll with a x15 win of your stake.
NetEnt’s Hansel and Gretel is a cut above many slots. Its slick look and feel and whole host of sweet features and treats would tempt even the toughest slot player into the land of make believe.
