An enchanted woodland is the setting for Pixies of the Forest, a 5 reel, 99 payline slot from IGT. Played using a Tumbling Reels game engine, it also comes with a bonus feature that awards up to 11 free spins. Play on all devices from 33p to £990 per spin.
The set up in this fantasy-themed game is pretty straightforward – set against a woodland backdrop, there are just 7 standard symbols spinning around the reels. You’ll see lower value A, K and Q symbols alongside a trio of Pixies. The most rewarding of these is the ‘I can’t believe it’s not Halle Berry pixie’ who awards 1,000 coins if you land 5 on a line. The top symbol is the Pixies of the Forest logo which pays 20, 400 or 2,000 coins. There’s also a wild that can land on the middle 3 reels in the base game. It replaces everything bar the bonus.
The game is played using a Tumbling Reels game engine – after a winning spin, the successful symbols are removed and new symbols drop in and replace them. If this new combination leads to a winner, the process is repeated. The tumbles keep on coming as long as a new winning combo is created. This feature can also be found in Da Vinci Diamonds.
The game also comes with a Free Spins Bonus feature which is triggered by landing 3 of the bonus symbol anywhere on the same payline on the same spin. Pick 1 of the bonus symbols which will reveal an award of between 5 and 11 free spins. The wild can hit on reel 1 as well as reels 2, 3 and 4 during the feature as opposed to the middle 3 reels in the base game.
As far as volatility goes, Pixies of the Forest sits somewhere in the middle, offering a balance of payouts. The design here is a bit of a mixed bag. 1 of the pixies is done cartoon style, the other 2 have a more human look. It’s all a little strange.
The features are solid enough though but not the most exciting. The Tumbling Reels engine offer some decent potential, especially during the Free Spins Bonus feature. If you enjoy the fantasy theme, Pixies of the Forest is a slot to consider. If pointy eared woodland folk don’t usually float your boat, there’s probably not enough on offer here to win you over.
