Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel Slot
This slick and ambitious slot is part of NetEnt’s Fairytale Legends series: the Hansel and Gretel slot based on that Grimm Brothers tale of old. This game comes with a host of treats to tempt the slot lovers out who like a bit of magic.
This game is set firmly in the fantasy world of fairy tales
Look and Feel
The game is set in the magical land of Hansel and Gretal, and NetEnt have done a superb job on the graphics. It beats games like the Copy Cats slot hands down. On Hansel & Gretel the designers have gone into over-drive.
The reels are set in an atmospheric forest with Hansel and Gretel walking on each side of the reels. The two main characters have been created as an elfin pair. Moving stars and sparkling lights play in the background, and soothing music gives a calming feel to game play, much like Fortunes of Sparta and the Legend of Shangri-La, 2 other great games.
Hansel and Gretal Slot Game Play
The Fairytale Legends Hansel and Gretel slot is a three row, 5 reel and 20 pay-lines slot game.
The high value icons that you’re after are the game’s icon, the letters H and G intertwined in story book script, followed by Hansel and Gretel. The lower value icons are a selection of bright coloured jewels in pink, yellow, green and purple.
The Bonus Scatter symbol is a treasure chest and the game has a Stacked Wild that crops up on reels 2 and 4 in the base game. 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 action.
There are three random features that can trigger while you play.
– The Fairy Wonder Spin triggers five to nine of the game’s entwined letter logos randomly across the reels covering some of the icons with a semi-transparent layer making new higher value symbols and giving you more potential winning combos.
– In the Fairy Surprise, a brightly-lit fairy lands on the reels with 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 gems will begin to change into the temporary winning symbol to make up a win.
– In the the Fairy Wild Spin, you need to keep an eye on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 as at any point in play, two of the reels can turn completely Wild, making Stacked Wilds and more potential winning combos. After the first Fairy Wild Spin, you get another.
The Bonus is triggered by landing the treasure chest icon on reels 1, 3, and 5. There are three separate games up for grabs.
– The Candy House is a dangerous place according to the story, as that’s where they meet the wicked witch. In the slot game, however, 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. Either pick the average of the three gem multiplier values or choose one of the three to continue with. It’s a gamble.
Fairy Free Spins
Free Spins are here for the taking too. To trigger the free spins, land one, two or three treasure chests and you’ll win two, four or 10 free spins respectively.
Or there’s the Coin Win which is a x15 your stake win.
NetEnt’s Hansel and Gretel is a cut above many slots. It looks slick and is packed with features and treats.
