Mythical creatures in a magical forest are the stars of Pixie Wings, a 5 reel, 50 payline slot from Pragmatic Play. Look out here for stacked symbols as well as a free spins feature where extra matching stacked symbols are added on each reel. Play, on all devices, from between 50p and £250 per spin.

The design in Pixie Wings has a bit of a blingy feel – with a sunlit woodland in the background, the reels include lower value playing cards and the prince, princess, queen and king pixies. The pixie quartet wouldn’t look out of place in a particularly outlandish Eurovision party.

The best of the standard symbols is the pixie king, awarding 75 coins if you land 5 on a payline. That doesn’t sound like much. All symbols can land fully stacked so it’s possible to build some big winning clusters on the same spin. Joining the standard symbols is a wild that replaces everything bar the scatter – it pays 500 coins if you land 5 on a payline.

Land 3 of the tree scatter and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature. Here you’ll be offered a choice – the number of free spins on offer varies depending on super stacks of which pixie character are added to each reel:

  • 5 free spins with King super stacks
  • 7 free spins with Queen super stacks
  • 9 free spins with Princess super stacks
  • 11 free spins with Prince super stacks

You can also opt for a random selection which offers between 3 and 12 free spins. Any of the 4 pixies can be the special super stack, as can the wild. For every extra scatter you got to trigger the feature, you will get 1 more free spin.

Pixie Wings is a simple game that offers plenty of action thanks to the stacked symbols. They can really come into their own in the base game, especially if you get lucky with 1 of the higher value super stacks. We found the game to be quite volatile.

The design has quite a flashy feel but it’s done nicely enough. The magical theme isn’t one of our favourites but Pixie Wings is a solid performer. If you like the genre, this magical woodland is worth a visit. Alternatively, Jurassic Giants, also by Pragmatic Play, is highly recommended.
