Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel Slot Review
Anybody who keeps up with NetEnt slots will know that this is a company which loves to produce a series of games. They like to link the themes. One of the major themes that they have been focusing on over the past couple of years is Fairytale Legends. Hansel and Gretel is the latest slot in this line.
This slot is, I believe, the second slot to be released in the Fairytale Legends line of games. It came out in April 2017. It has five reels and 10 paylines. The minimum bet per spin is 10p. The maximum is £200. This is a medium volatility slot with a 3.29% house edge. The maximum you can win is £80,000.
The theme, as you may have guessed, is Hansel and Gretel. We’ve given it a try over at Betzest Casino. The fairytale story, obviously. It does look gorgeous too. You can tell that NetEnt is planning to make this one of the ‘main lines’ of games for the next few years (plenty of fairytales to cover, after all). This means that it has been designed with intricate artwork which really pops out. In fact, I am willing to go as far as to say that this is probably one of the best NetEnt slots to come out in recent years. It looks that great.
As with many of the NetEnt slots that you find nowadays, this is a company which a long time ago worked out that the best way in which to make money is through offering top quality mobile slots. Since Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel is new, it has clearly going to look best if you play it on a mobile device. However, thankfully, NetEnt have managed to create a decent balance and it still looks decent on desktop computers.
Now, NetEnt could have gone down the easy route and made a Fairytale Legends slot which had the same features as the other games in the line. However, they didn’t. This game is completely unique. Let’s take a look at some of the features, shall we?
Obviously, the most important feature is how the game actually pays out. It pays out anywhere on the reels. So, left to right or right to left. The combination does not even have to start from the end reels. It can start from anywhere. This makes it a bit easier to win the game, which we love!
In addition to this, you will be able to enjoy stacked wilds. They can only come on reels 2 and 4, but they should pop up often enough to offer a few wins. Plus, the fact the game pays out starting from anywhere on the reels makes everything a bit more convenient.
If you get a stacked wild which covers the whole of the reels. The kicker is that for your free respin, all of the reels will have a stacked wild. This is going to make it so much easier to win on the game. The best part is that as long as you keep getting stacked wilds during this game mode, you will keep getting free spins. I have done this game mode several times now and I have managed to achieved 10-20 respins in a row, which is amazing. I did not win that much, but it was real ‘on the edge of your seat’ stuff.
In addition to this, there are three random bonus features. I won’t talk about these too much as they are the same ones that appear on other slots in this line e.g. fairy wilds being added to the reels. Nothing amazing.
If you are lucky enough to get three of the treasure chest symbols, then you will get a random bonus. There are three options. One is in a ‘pick me’ mode. Another offers some free spins. The other just gives a cash bonus.
Honestly, with the number of features to be found in Hansel and Gretel, you are not going to get bored by this game. It brings a lot the table. While it does not pay out anywhere near as often as one would hope, it is still a tremendous amount of fun!
