NetEnt Launches Second Title in its Fairytale Legends Trilogy – Hansel and Gretel
NetEnt Software, the leading provider of digital gaming solutions for online casinos, has released the second title from its fabulous Fairytale Legends Trilogy. The second installment of the slot game series is based on the age old tale of Hansel and Gretel. After the successful release of the first online slot game, Little Red Riding Hood, in October of 2016, the company is now hoping to mimic that response again with the new release.
Fairytale Legends Trilogy: Hansel and Gretel
Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel is a 5- reels and 10- pay lines slot game. The game was released optimized for personal computers and mobile devices. That means that punters can enjoy a round on the game no matter where they are.
Players have another reason to be excited about the title. They can enjoy the game for as little as GBP 0.10 a spin. However, if they are feeling bold, they can wager the maximum bet of GBP £200 on a single spin.
Hansel and Gretel Slot Machine
Once again, the developers have chosen a well- known fairytale as their inspiration behind the game. Punters will have to follow the heroes of the 2017 release deep into the woods, trying to find the candy house and stay away from the horrible witch.
It is set in a deep dark forest, with the moon shining down on the main characters, Hansel and Gretel, who appear to the sides of the reels. The aim of the game is to help the children find their way out of the forest. The game, as expected, is filled with magical elements that have been beautifully animated.
The symbols used in the game include the brother and sister; Hansel and Gretel, different coloured candy pieces, birds, treasure chests scatters and the Fairytale Legends logos.
Spinners only have to only land three matching symbols on adjacent reels and on an active pay lines in order to win a payout.
The logo of the title serves as the most valuable symbol of them all. If a player lands five of these symbols across any pay line, they are rewarded 40 times their initial stake.
Stacked Wild Symbols and Re-Spins
There are also Stacked Wild symbols that appear only on reels 2 and 4. Whenever a Stacked Wild symbol covers either reels 2 or 4, the player gets a re-spin. The symbol can also appear on reels 1 and 5 when the Stacked Wild Re-Spin feature is activated; landing another Stacked Wild results in the player receiving another re- spin. This continues until no further Stacked Wilds land on the re- spin.
Hansel and Gretel Slot Special Features
Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel also features three other random features that can be triggered in the base game. A cute little fairy follows the player throughout the adventure, bringing about these features.
First of these is the Fairy Wonder Spin, where a cluster of five to nine game logo symbols appear as an overlay for one spin. This can result in the player taking home a win that is up to 400 times their initial stake.
Second on the list is the Fairy Surprise feature. This can only occurs, when a players lands on a non- winning spin in the base game. When this happens, a symbol is randomly chosen from the screen and other symbols start turning into the chosen symbol. This continues until the player gets a winning combination. This feature can get players a win that is 31 times their initial stake.
Fairy Wild Spin
Finally, there’s a Fairy Wild Spin feature. With this feature, two full stacks of wilds can appear on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 during a base game spin. This then triggers the Stacked Wild Re- Spin feature, which as mentioned, can trigger a win of 400 times the player’s initial stake.
Bonus Features on Hansel and Gretel
The treasure chest bonus symbol is another one that can appear simultaneously on reels 1, 3 and 5 in the base game. The game offers three main bonus features. Landing on the treasure chest icon can trigger one of these bonus features.
These include Candy House Bonus feature, where the players gets to pick three out of 15 items. Each of these items give players a certain multiplier. This feature can lead to a win of up to 120 times the player’s total stake.
Second of the main bonus features is The Coin Win feature, which simply gives players a cash amount that is 15 times their total stake. This can also reward them with ten free spins through the final of the three main bonus features, the Free Spins feature
It is safe to say that there is plenty to play in the second release of the Fairytale Legends trilogy.
The company expects to release the final part of the trilogy sometime later this year.
