Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood slot - Free Play - Game Review
With the overwhelming success that NetEnt found with their flagship video slot: Jack and the Beanstalk, not many slot-enthusiasts thought they’d simply stop there… and those who thought so, were right!
Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood is the most recent slot game to come from the NetEnt studios, and it’s everything we’d hoped it could be… and more!
The game features the same gorgeous, high-quality, attention-to-detail-specific imagery and HD backdrop like Jack and the Beanstalk does, and from the moment you first load up the slot you’ll be blown away by the ambience, tone, and overall playability of the game.
You can choose to stake from as little as £0.01 (yes, NetEnt allow you to vary the number of lines you play!), right the way up to £300 per spin, so there’s a suitable budget for ALL types of players – and, this customisation means you can find a stake that’s just right for you. No more settling for just 50p or £1 – if you want to stake £0.68 per spin… you can bloody do so!
Game Bonus Features
There’s three random fairy bonuses found within the main Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood base game, and the first is the Fairy Magic Spin, followed by the Fairy Surprise, and the Fairy Wild Spin.
The magic spin basically makes an entire reel into just one sole symbol, so it kind of acts like a wild reel, but it’s a symbol, not a wild.
The second bonus is the wild spin, and as you can probably tell by the name, here, you’ll get stick wilds, with 3 or 4 landing in place on the middle 3 reels. Anytime you manage to get 3 or 4 sticky wilds on the middle three reels, the feature will begin, the you will get a free spin, with extra free spins awarded for each time you manage to land another wild symbol on the middle three reels.
Now there’s also a chest scatter bonus much like jack and the Beanstalk, and here, you can win an instant cash prize of 15X your bet, as well as a free spins round where you’ll find sticky wilds with re-spins.
However, the main attraction is the “Beware the Wold” bonus, and this is very similar to the Rainbow Riches “Road to Riches” feature – you simply work your way up the mountains to try and reach the treasure by spinning a wheel!
Pros: An energetic-gameplay with stunning graphics, Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood is a game you’ll not want to miss!
Cons: Lovers of Jack and the Beanstalk may find the transition to Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood a little disappointing as the bonus round isn’t quite as fun.
