Fairy Gate is a gorgeous new slot machine that was created by Quickspin. The Swedish developer chose a fairy inspired theme for the game, with clear fantasy origins and a beautiful forest environment for them to be in. The game they ended up with has 20 fixed lines, spins 5 reels and can pay at most a jackpot of $2,000. You can also find on those reels symbols with scatter or wild abilities, capable of triggering free spins and respins for you.
Betting and Prizes
A lot of the newer companies creating slot machines will choose to focus on the action, and will not pay much attention to the way the bets are constructed. It’s what we’re seeing in Fairy Gate as well, a game where you are asked only to choose the total wager, and to do it within the given range of $0.20 to $100. Considering those values, and the 20 active lines of the slot, we can calculate the line bet as being between $0.01 and $5.
There are a couple of symbols here, which are capable of forming combinations that will pay up to 400x, or up to $2,000.
Fairy Gate Slot Features
First of all, one of the symbols that we should be looking at is the one with the substitution ability, and one of the two icons that are capable of paying the game’s biggest prize. The wild symbol is a simple replacement symbol most of the time, which will not work when the scatter needs help from it.
The scatter is marked as a Bonus symbol and it is going to be needed in three positions on the reels, in order to get you free spins. The bonus symbols are only showing up on the middle columns, all three, so you need all of them visible to get the feature. Your reward at this point will consist of 10 free spins, with extra reels active and a chance of getting Fairy Orb symbols each round. These extra symbols will offer you extra wilds, but without the respins.
The game also makes use of randomly occurring Fairy Wild Respins. When they do trigger, without any help from the game’s symbols, the respins will give you two extra reels, which are added to the five already available. There will be Fairy Orb Symbols on those reels, and if they land in view then you are given a random number of wild symbols plus a respin so that you can take advantage of them. You can get between 2 and 5 random wilds for each of these Fairy Orbs that are visible. The respins don’t benefit from the scatters, since those symbols are removed at that point.
Theme & Design
Fairy Gate’s theme is obvious enough, being inspired by fairies and by the magical world in which they’re known to live in. We are being shown a magical forest in the background, with the right side of the screen being left open so that additional reels can appear there during some of the features. The reels will appear from a large tree that has a tall decorated door in its side. The reels have images of fairies, logos and of heavily decorated poker logos. I loved the graphics of Fairy Gate from Quickspin and I think that it’s one of its strengths.
Fairy Gate has proven itself an attractive slot machine, in more ways than one. Whether you’re enjoying its graphics or its features, I think that it will give you enough reasons to get back to it.
