Fairytale Legend Hansel and Gretel is the second of the three games currently available in NetEnt’s Fairytale Legends series of slots. As its name suggests, this game is based on the famous fairy tale of the same name, although the imagery on the reels of the slot largely consists of gemstones. There is somewhat very Starburst-like about the look of the game, although once players get to special features they’ll see a whole new side of the slot.
As you might expect with fairytale-themed slots such as this, a calming, unimposing ambient track plays in the background, and it kicks up a notch when you spin the reels. If you look past the shaped candy lozenges and sweeties which show up amongst the misty backdrop, you might notice that Hansel & Gretel are walking over the field to towards their destiny at the old witch’s home, with every spin you take.
The Look and Feel
Like many other slots from this provider, there are only 20 lines present on the game’s 5 reels. Betting is a doddle in this game, with the customary betting level and coin value buttons allowing players to stretch their bets from $0.10 per spin up to $200 a game. This is quite impressive. You’ll not only end up paying half-price for the number of lines in the game, but you can also win in both directions.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel Gameplay
As mentioned, you can pocket wins with winning combinations of three or more symbols from right to left or left to right. This helps give Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel a very respectable RTP (return to player) rate of 96.71%. Ordinarily, we’d expect a small non-progressive jackpot prize to compensate for the surplus of ways to win, but at 400x your total bet, even that is decent.
Hansel and Gretel Slot Bonus Features
What the Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel slot does lack is a wild symbol – at least in the base game. Treasure chest icons take on the mantle of bonus symbols, and when three appear on the first, third and fifth reels, 1 of 3 special bonuses are activated. These include a pick and win Candy House Bonus, a free spin bonus round with stacked, frozen wild re-spins, or an instant win cash prize.
There are also several random bonuses worked into the game’s design. Fairy Wonder bonuses offer big wins via clustered symbols, while Fairy Surprise bonuses offer a guaranteed winning combination. Lastly, the Fairy Wild bonus promises stacked wilds and a re-spin.
