Netent kept the basic slot design similar to Red Riding Hood with Hansel and Gretel standing on each side of the game window. Spinning the reels sees them turning around and walking deeper into the forest, reminiscent of how the fairy tale was written by the Brothers Grimm. The background of the slot is the said forest at night lit only by a faint moonlight and stars.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel™ is a 5-reel, 3-row, 10-pay line (fixed) with Random Fairy Features in the base game, Free Spins, a Candy House Bonus Game and a new pay mechanism. Bet levels and coin values range from 1 – 10 and 0.01 – 1,00 allowing for bet sizes between $0.10 – $100. Maximum pay on a single spin is 4,000 coins or 400x bet with a full screen of stacked FL symbols. TRTP is stated with 96.71% for this medium variance slot in HTML5 format that will be available for play on desktop, mobile or tablet across all OS platforms.
Pay symbols including Wilds can appear stacked covering all positions on a reel. Low pays are candy pieces in yellow, red, violet and green colors whereas high paying symbols are Hansel, Gretel and the top symbol is an artistically written acronym for Fairytale Legends. Wilds are a stretch of pathway with birds who pick up the bread crumbs Hansel left as markers when they where led into the forest. No scatters on this slot but bonus symbols in the form of Treasure Chests.
Adjacent Symbol Pay Mechanism
One new pay mechanism that Netent has introduced for the first time on one of their slots are the adjacent pay symbol combinations. The wins are not paid just for left to right combinations but any adjacent 3 – 5 symbols starting on any reel on any of the 10 lines will pay the according coin win for 3 – 5 OAK.
One example is shown in the image below where the Hansel symbol landed adjacent on reels 2 to 4 with the combo paying multiple 3OAK Hansel.
