Epic fantasy adventure from warrior fairies is the slightly unusual theme on offer in Fae Legend Warrior. Powered by Eyecon and available on desktop, tablet and mobile devices, it’s a 5 reel, 25 payline slot that comes with double wild wins, a picks round and up to 400 free spins where all payouts are trebled. Play from between 25p and £12.50 per spin.

Some of Eyecon’s earlier efforts left a little bit to be desired when it came to design. They’ve really upped their game with more recent releases though and Fae Legend Warriors looks good. The visuals have a slight manga feel crossed with ancient Greece.

You’ll see an assortment of potions, jewels, shields, crowns, helmets, hammers and gauntlets spinning around the reels. The 2 most lucrative symbols are the fairy warriors. The purple haired fairy awards up to 1,000 coins per payline. Best of all is the blonde-haired fairy – land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these on a line and you’ll pocket 10, 100, 500 or 5,000 coins.

The golden key is the game’s wild – it replaces all other symbols apart from the flame-haired fairy. Whenever the key forms part of a winning combination, the payout is doubled. The key can also help you unlock 1 of the game’s 2 bonus features:

Free Games feature – land 3, 4 or 5 keys anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll receive 15, 20 or 25 free spins. All payouts during this round are trebled. As with other Eyecon slots, you can retrigger up to 15 times giving you a potential 400 free spins.

Prize Pick feature – this second bonus is activated by landing 3 or more of the flame-haired fairy scatter symbol. You’ll then be taken to a new screen and shown a collection of objects on marble plinths. Pick 1 to reveal a multiplier prize which can be anything up to 100 times your total stake. The number of picks you get depends on how many scatters triggered the feature.

Fae Legend Warrior offers just what we’ve come to expect from Eyecon as far as features are concerned. Both the picks round and the free spins with 3x multiplier offer some very decent action. We’re pleased to report that the design here is a big improvement on some of the developer’s other slots.

The top-notch gameplay and easy on the eye imagery make Fae Legend Warrior an impressive overall package and well worth a look whether you’re a fan of the fantasy theme or not. If you like the fantasy theme, Microgaming’s Avalon II and Yggdrasil Gaming’s Double Dragons are worth looking into.
