Once again, NetEnt has come up with a video slot that players are sure to love in Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel. Inspired by the Brothers Grimm fairy tale of the same name, this video slot also happens to be the second in the NetEnt’s new series of slots centered around fairytale themes. The video slot boasts of having 3D graphics, a soothing soundtrack, and a host of regular features that most NetEnt titles are known for. Additionally, the video slot has some special and bonus features that can be activated randomly or as a result of getting a specific number and order of symbols after a spin. Like most NetEnt video slots, this title can be played on a variety of devices (provided they support HTML5).
Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel is a video slot that follows the 5 reels and 3 rows format. While it has 10 bet lines, what makes the video slot different though is that wins are awarded regardless of where the symbols start on the bet line (provided there are at least 3 of the winning symbols). Similar to other NetEnt titles, the video slot allows players to vary their bets through changing the coin value and betting level settings. When the coin value and level settings are set at their lowest, the bet for each spin would be $/€0.10. Maxing up these settings would result in $/€200 bets per spin. The theoretical RTP that NetEnt set for this video slot is also not that bad at 96.71%.
When it comes to features, NetEnt has made sure that Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel had a lot of them. One of the most prominent and rewarding of these features is the video slot’s Stacked Wild and Stacked Wild Re-Spins. Stacked Wild symbols can randomly activate on reels 2 and 4 after a spin. Following the appearance of these symbols, players will then get a Stacked Wild Re-Spin that could result in the re-appearance of Stacked Wild Symbols (though on reels 1 and 5 this time around).
Other than the Stacked Wilds, the video slot also has randomly activated features such as Fairy Wonder Spin, Fairy Surprise, and Fairy Wild Spin. In Fairy Wonder Spin, the video slot will overlay the reels with 5 to 9 logo symbols after a spin. This cluster of overlayed reels can then result in a big win for the player. On the other hand, Fairy Surprise will have the video slot giving players a chance when they’re in no-win situations. This feature involves the selection and change of a random symbol (other than Bonus and Wilds) after a spin results in a loss for the player. Other symbols in the reel are then going to get turned into the selected symbol to boost the players chances of winning. The Fairy Wild Spin is similar to the Stacked Wild Spin but instead of just reels 2 and 4, 2 full Stack of Wilds can randomly appear on reels 1 and 5 as well. In the event of a win, players will then get awarded with a Stacked Wild Re-Spin.
As if these features weren’t enough, NetEnt also included Bonus features to its Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel video slot. To activate these Bonus Features, players will need 3 Bonus symbols to appear on reels 1, 3, and 5. Once activated, players are then asked to choose from three chests for their bonus. Currently, these bonuses are the Candy House Bonus, Free Spins, and Coin Win. The Candy House Bonus has players picking 3 of 15 items with each item corresponding to a multiplier. Players can then opt to get the average value of the multipliers (each multiplier’s value is hidden from the player) or choose one of the 3. It is only once the player has chosen a multiplier that its value is then revealed (this could be anywhere from 1.2x to 120x a player’s bet). Free Spins are a relatively straightforward with the video slot giving the player 10 Free Spins. As for Coin Win, the player is just given a coin with a value that’s equal to 15x the players’ current bet. Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel is currently available on online casinos that use NetEnt such as SlotsMillion, PlayFrank, Vera&John, and many more. For players still unsure of the video slot, there’s a demo that’s playable for free and is available on NetEnt’s main site.
