Farytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel slot - Free Play - Game Review
Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel is a new video slot from Net Entertainment, and is a follow-up to their incredibly popular first “Fairytale Legends” title, FairyTale Legends: Red Riding Hood.
It’s incredibly rare to see two themed games appearing within just a few months of one another (FairyTale Legends: Red Riding Hood was released back in 2016), and this just goes to show the popularity of the first release – if it wasn’t a BIG HIT with players, Net Entertainment wouldn’t have released a follow-up so soon!
The game is – as the name tends to give away – based around Hansel and Gretel, and visually, the game remains quite similar to FairyTale Legends: Red Riding Hood, featuring game specific symbols, alongside the traditional playing card symbols, including 10, J (Jack), Q (Queen), K (King), and A (Ace), which act – of course – as the low-paying symbols within the game.
The visuals, audio, and animations inside the game are top-notch, and you’ll be able to game in style, thanks to Net Entertainment’s dedication to providing players with a high-quality, and entertaining gaming experience at all times.
Much like its predecessor, FairyTale Legends: Red Riding Hood, The Hansel and Gretel version offers three bonuses, all of which are triggered in the base game (there’s also a random, in-game bonus-round, which we’ll cover later. The bonuses are shown below:
In order to land one of the bonuses, you need to land three of the chest symbols on reels one, three, and five.
Mystery Bonus – if you pick this bonus you will simply be awarded a random coin value prize, which can range between 10X and 50X.
Free Spins – by far the better of the bonuses, enter the free spins round and you will enjoy a times to multiply on all wins, with each chest landing during the free spins counting as an additional two free spins. If you manage to land two of the chests, you will get for free spins extra, with three chests awarding a full retrigger of 10 free spins.
Trail Bonus – if you choose the trail bonus, you will work your way through a landscape of scenery, placing you in the heart of the forest alongside Hansel and Gretel. Here, you simply roll a dice to determine how many steps forward you move each time, and each step award either a cash prize or the game over text.
As mentioned, there is also an in-game feature that can be triggered randomly on any spin, and when this lands you will see the fairy appear in the middle of the screen who then randomly turns between three and nine symbols into matching symbols on the middle three reels.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel is optimised for both desktop and mobile devices, ensuring you can enjoy the gameplay from no matter where you are in the world.
Pros: Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel is a really exciting game that offers four different features and bonuses.
Cons: There’s no denying, it does feel like a bit of a clone of the original.
