An enchanted forest is the setting for Wild Pixies, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Pragmatic Play. The highlight of this magical fantasy is the bonus round that awards 8 free spins (initially) complete with roaming wilds. Play on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.
Set against a misty, woodland backdrop, you’ll see lower value A to 9 royal values spinning around the reels alongside 2 male and 2 female Pixies. The best of these is the pixie king. Land 3, 4 or 5 of him on 1 of the game’s 20 paylines and you’ll pocket an award worth 2.5, 7.5 or 12.5 times your total stake. More rewarding still is the wild. This delivers payouts of 5, 12.5 or 25 times your total stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 in combination. As usual, the wild substitutes for all other symbols bar the scatter.
That gemstone scatter appears on reels 1, 3 and 5 only. Land 3 on the same spin to trigger the game’s Roaming Wilds Free Spins feature. If you land scatters on reels 1 and 3 but just miss out on a third, you could receive a scatter nudge which shifts the all-important third scatter into position – this is known as the Scatter Nudge feature.
Once activated, you’ll be awarded 8 free spins. On top of the reels you’ll see 3 sets of 2 empty spaces – whenever a wild hits, it fills 1 of these empty spots. When both positions in 1 of these sets are full. you’ll activate a pair of roaming wilds as well as being awarded 2 more free spins. These roaming wilds move about the screen on each free spin. By the end of the feature, you could end up with 6 extra wilds roaming around the reels on each free spin.
There’s a magical feel to the sound and visuals in Wild Pixies. It’s very easy on the eyes and ears. The base game is straightforward, but the roaming wilds can deliver some top action during the feature. The variance here is in the medium to high range with top wins of 500 times your stake on every spin/free spin.
The pixie theme isn’t really one of our favourites. Wild Pixies is a perfectly solid slot though and the bonus round makes it well worth a spin. If you like roaming wilds, NetEnt’s Halloween Jack offers them.
