NetEnt Continues Fairytale Legends Series with Hansel and Gretel SlotPublished April 24, 2017 by Ivan P
Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel by NetEnt takes you into the enchanted world of evil witches, spells, and fairies, filled with opportunities to win big.
NetEnt kicked off their Fairytale Legends series last year with the Red Riding Hood slot. With that game being very successful among the players, the company decided to continue down the same path releasing a new Fairytale Legends title with the Hansel and Gretel slot.
Calming Graphics & Audio
In line with the main theme of the slot, Hansel and Gretel will take you deep into the enchanted forest filled with colorful candies and chests hiding special prizes. As you spin away, the relaxing music that keeps playing in the background will help you really feel like a part of this fantasy world as you help young Hansel and Gretel escape the evil witch and find their way home.
Although the design is very similar to that of Red Riding Hood, which is what NetEnt was clearly going for, the Hansel and Gretel slot still features some recognizable distinctions, making it a whole new game in its own right, while successfully continuing the Fairytale Legends series.
Gameplay & Features
This slot features ten paylines, which would be fairly standard if not for the fact that the winning line doesn't have to start at the leftmost reel. As long as three or four of the symbols land on any of the ten paylines, you'll win.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel is stacked with various bonus features. The main ones are triggered when you land three Chests (Scatters) on reels 1, 3, 5. You'll get to pick one of the chests, awarding you either 10 free spins, instant cash awards, or Candy House Bonus.
When in free spins, Stacked Wild symbols, which only appear on reels 2 and 4 in the base game, will also land on reels 1 and 5. Every time you land a stack of Wilds, you'll get one free re-spin, with Stacked Wilds locked in place. The Candy House Bonus game will award you with a multiplier of up to 120x on your total bet.
On top of all this, just like in Red Riding Hood, magic fairies will accompany you along the way, helping you find your way home. They'll appear randomly, triggering Fairy Wonder Spin, Fairy Surprise, or Fairy Wild Spin.
All in all, Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel is a fun and exciting slot with a potential to pay big and some really nice features to keep you coming for more.
