Enter a realm filled with charming princes, beautiful princesses, fire-breathing dragons and magical unicorns in Fairytale Fortune, a 5 reel, 15 payline slot from Pragmatic Play. It comes with plenty of extras including a spin the wheel bonus as well as 3 free spin rounds complete with wild modifiers. Play on all devices from between 15p and £75 per spin.
Pastel shades dominate the reels in Fairytale Fortune – with a castle, fields and river in the background, you’ll see playing card suits, hour glasses, books of spells, unicorns and dragons on the reels. They’re joined by the handsome prince and beautiful princess, both of whom pay 20 times your stake if you land 5 on a payline.
There’s also a wild that replace everything bar the scatter – the wilds really come into their own during the features which are triggered by landing the diamond scatter on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin. You’ll then spin a wheel and be awarded 1 of the following features.
Wheel of Fortune feature – spin the wheel. Depending on where the pointer lands, you’ll receive a payout of between 5 and 50 times your stake. Get really lucky and you’ll find the 50x payout plus a respin.
Raining Wilds Free Spins feature – 10 free spins are awarded here. On each of them, between 3 and 10 wilds will drop into play.
Super Wilds Free Spins feature – again 10 free spins are awarded. Every time a wild lands, it’s collected in a meter above the reels. Once all 10 free spins have played out, you’ll receive a special super spin. All the collected wilds are brought into play to hopefully deliver a bumper payout.
Progressive Free Spins feature – trigger this and you’ll receive 20 free spins. Look out for the rose symbol here – collect these to work your way through the 5 levels where extra stacked wilds are brought into play. You’ll start with a stacked wild on reel 1. If you manage to collect over 20 roses, you’ll reach level 5 where you’ll see stacked wilds spinning around all 5 reels.
There’s a magical feel to the design here. Visually is rather nicely done with a fantastical orchestral score playing in the background. Fairytale Fortune still packs a decent punch on the gameplay stakes too. The volatility here edges towards the high category. Expect some lengthy winless spells but hope to cash in when you trigger 1 of the bonus features.
This theme is often quite Marmite for slots players. If you like it, then there’s much to enjoy in Fairytale Fortune. It might be a bit twee for some tastes but the extra wilds in the free spins rounds make this a very playable game. I would also try some of Pragmatic Play’s other great titles with Jurassic Giants my favourite.
