Play Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters Slot for Free & Review

Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters is an iSoftBet slot with 5 reels and 10 paylines. Playable from 10p per spin, this game is based on 2012 horror movie of the same name. Look out for the monster wild which expands when in the middle of a reel. It gets better in the Free Spins feature as wilds expand and remain frozen for the duration of the feature – there’s 15 free spins to be had too.

Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters is a spin-off from the 2012 film of the same name that starred Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton. Powered by iSoftBet, this horror-themed slot comes with Gothic graphics and a bonus feature that offer 15 free spins with sticky expanding wilds. The movie didn't wow the critics - let's see if the game is any better.

In the Hollywood version of the classic fairy tale, the sweet loving children turned into witch hunting vigilantes. The slot version maintains that bloodthirsty theme - the graphics are about as far from Hans Christian Andersen as you could imagine.

The visuals give a dark, oppressive feel - set against a what looks like a dungeon backdrop, the reels include stylised playing cards as well as photo images of 5 of the main characters from the film. The top payer is the Gemma Arterton character who pays 3,000 coins for a 5 symbol combination.

They're joined by the grotesque looking monster who is the game's wild, substituting for all other symbols bar the scatter. When the wild lands in the middle of a reel, it will expand to fill the whole reel to boost your winning chances.

The crossbow symbol is the scatter - land 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels and you'll win 100, 250 or 1,000 coins. You'll also trigger the Free Spins feature and be awarded 15 free spins. The added wrinkle here comes in the form of the wild. Just like in the base game, if you land the wild on the middle of a row, it will expand.

During the free spins round, any expanded wilds that land will be frozen in place for the duration of the feature. These can hit on multiple reels and really get the coins flowing.

The movie version of Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters failed to trouble the awards panels around the globe. The slot version won't be getting quite such a critical panning. There are a few flaws though. You'd think that a slot called Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters would actually feature both of the main characters.

Hansel (the Jeremy Renner character) is absent from the reels! The features aren't overflowing either. That said, the free spins round is a decent one thanks to the sticky expanded wilds. The Satanic-inspired design is pretty good too if you like that kind of thing.

Get lucky with those wilds and Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters can help you hunt down a decent haul of coins too. If you enjoy the horror theme, it's one to add to your rotation – I also suggest you take a look at Net Entertainment’s Blood Suckers and Microgaming’s Electric Diva.
