Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel is the 2nd Fairytale Legends slot from Net Entertainment and comes with 5 reels and 10 paylines. Playable from 10p to £200 a spin on all compatible devices, it benefits from plenty of bonus features (6) including randomly triggered base game features and free spins.
Set in the deep dark woods with the moon shining down on Hansel and Gretel who appear to the sides of the reels, your aim is to help the children find their way out of the forest. The game is filled with magic and benefits from beautiful animations to add to the magical fairy tale theme.
Symbols on the reels include different coloured candy, birds, Hansel, Gretel, treasure chests scatters and the Fairytale Legends logos. The latter is the most valuable giving you 40 times your total stake for 5 across a payline.
There’s also Stacked Wild symbols that appear only on reels 2 and 4 in the base game and additionally on reels 1 and 5 during the Stacked Wild Re-Spin feature. Whenever a Stacked Wild symbol covers either reels 2 or 4, you get a re-spin. If you get another Stacked Wild (possible on 4 reels), you will get another re-spin. These continue until no further Stacked Wilds land on the re-spin.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel also comes with 3 random features which can be triggered, randomly of course, in the base game. You have the Fairy Wonder Spin feature where a cluster of between 5 and 9 game logo symbols appear as an overlay on the reels for 1 spin. This can lead to big wins of up to 400 times your stake.
The Fairy Surprise feature occurs randomly when you get a non-winning spin in the base game – a symbol is then randomly chosen from the symbols on the reels with the other symbols turning into the chosen symbol until you get a winning combination. This can give you wins of up to 31 times your stake.
Finally, there’s a Fairy Wild Spin feature where 2 full stacks of wilds can appear on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 during a base game spin. This will then trigger the Stacked Wild Re-Spin feature (which is described above) and can lead to win of up to 400 times your stake.
Look out for the treasure chest bonus symbol appearing simultaneously on reels 1, 3 and 5 in the base game which will trigger 1 of the 3 main bonus features. They are as follows:
Candy House Bonus feature – you get to pick 3 from 15 items which each item giving you a certain multiplier. After you’ve picked 3 multipliers, you can choose to receive the average value of the 3 multipliers or pick 1 of the 3. Here, you can win up to 120 times your total stake.
The Coin Win feature simply gives you a cash amount of 15 times your total stake and the Free Spins feature rewards you with 10 free spins. Look out for more bonus symbols landing on the reels as 1, 2 or 3 will give you 2, 4 or 10 extra free spins respectively. Look out for Stacked Wilds appearing fully on reels 1, 2, 4 or 5 as this will trigger the Stacked Wild Re-Spin feature. This can lead to wins of up to 400 times your stake on every free spin.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel is an entertaining slot for sure with plenty of bonus features – it’s a medium variance offering which gives you a nice balance between win amounts and entertainment. I also recommend you try NetEnt’s other fairy tale inspired game, Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood which is equally good.
