For a long time, the NetEnt developers have shown their preference for fabulous themes. The Swedish game developer has already developed many slot machines, which have been enormously well received by the audience. Now we have another surprise – NetEnt has announced the release of the famous Fairytale Legend series with a new slot called Hansel & Gretel. It is already the second slot machine, which serves the Grimm brothers (The first one was Red Riding Hood). But will NetEnt succeed in packaging the theme decently into a new, attractive game?
There is still not much known about the gameplay that the players expect. Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel is a video slot with five reels and ten fixed paylines. Of course, the thematic implementation of the individual symbols is adapted to the well-known fairy tale, and the two siblings Hansel and Gretel as well as the best symbol of the game series and wild symbols can be found here as well as various color candies. A win in this game is achieved when at least three symbols appear on any of the winning lines next to each other, from right to left, left to right, and in the middle.
Features of Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel
The re-spin feature is triggered when on roller two or four a stacked game appears and covers the entire roller. In this case, stacked wilds can appear on the other reels, except for the middle ones, thus providing great gains.
For the fairy wonder spin the fairy already known from the Little Red Riding Hood game must appear. It then converts between five and nine symbols randomly selected into the best-paying symbol, the game logo.
The special function named by NetEnt as a Fairy Surprise Random Feature is also started by a randomly occurring fee, but can only be triggered if the previous rotation has not generated a profit. In this case, a random symbol is displayed on the screen. The fairy transforms all other symbols of the screen into the chosen symbol until a win is achieved.
The third feature of the fairy is the Fairy Wild Spin. Here she turns one or two random rolls into Wilds. Then a re-spin is played with the chance of further stacked wilds.
Bonus game and scatter
Three red boxes (Scatter), which appear exclusively on reels one, three and five, trigger one of the three bonuses that the player starts by opening one of the three boxes. In the crates can be on the one hand a Coin Win, which is quite unspectacular always exactly 15 times the total bet. If it is won, the bonus game ends at the end.
On the other hand, 10 examples can be started in which each additional crate generates two additional spins on the reels. In the examples all features can be gained. It is not possible, however, to release another bonus game during the freespins. In addition, during the examples also appear on roller one and five stacked wilds.
At Candy House Bonus, Hansel and Gretel go to the gingerbread house, which is decorated with various sweets. Three of them must be selected to win a prize. On the right side of the screen is a table with the possible multipliers, which can be won by the sweets. After selecting the three candies, the player has the option to either take the average value of multipliers of all sweets, or choose one of the sweets and take a bigger risk. The profits can be as much as 120 times the total bet.
