Part of the Fairytale Legends series, Hansel and Gretel is a slot machine that’s offered by NetEnt. The game follows the story of two young children, as they encounter a witch in the woods. It’s a bit of a cautionary tale for children from the Middle Ages, but it’s still loved and enjoyed today. NetEnt has a full series of fairytales that it puts into slot machine form, and as usual they do a great job with it.
Just 10 fixed lines are going to be selected for each spin of the game’s 5 reels. If you look at the features that are included, you will find stacked wild re-spins, three types of random features, scatters and three regular features (involving free spins and bonus games). The feature rich environment will still be able to deliver a decent payout, of up to $8,000.
Betting and Prizes
You will set up the wager in this game to cover 10 lines each time the reels spin. The range of the wager varies significantly, starting from just $0.10 and eventually reaching even $200 if you want it to get that high. The maximum line bet will have a value of $20, using 10 coins of $2 to get there.
Looking at the slot’s best reward, it will give you only 400x back, so it could be turned into a prize of $8,000, at the highest line bet possible. The game gets a decent average RTP, better than the average in fact, being set to 96.71%.
Fairytale Legends Slot Features
The reels 2 and 4 are going to have stacked wilds appear on them, symbols which are used as substitutes that will allow you to form more winning combinations. When the wild manages to cover a full reel, the game will deliver you a re-spin, with the chance to get a second one if another stacked wild covers the other reel.
There are no less than three random features that you can obtain at any point as you play the game. These are called Fairy Wild Spin, Fairy Wonder Spin and Fairy Surprise. The first one gives you two full stacks of wilds on the first two or last two reels, with a re-spin triggered next. The second feature gives you a cluster of 5 to 9 symbols with the game logo anywhere on the reels. The third feature is going to appear during non-winning spins and will transform symbols until you get a win.
In addition to the three random features, the game also offers bonus features which trigger when scatter symbols appear three times on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels. You can get a bonus game called Candy House, with three picks to make from the fifteen shown. You can also get a cash prize of up to 15x your stake. Finally, you can trigger 10 free spins.
Theme & Design
I found the graphics in this game to be fairly enjoyable. The cartoon style chosen for it is a great match for the fairytale inspired theme. For the game’s symbols, the selection was made to include the two main characters, along with birds, candy, logos and treasure chests.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel is a great addition to this series and it’s a game that can pay well in the long run, and which has a wealth of features that should make it very interesting.
