FairyTale legends: mirror mirror pokie
We want to pay attention to the settings. There are 243 ways for payment and a playing field of 5x3 cells. The main feature of the pokie is the availability of the numerous bonus features, for instance, Mirror Re-Spin, 3 random bonus features, free spins, and the bonus game. All these bonuses are described in detail below. The RTP (return to player percentage) reaches up to 96.48%. By the way, the biggest winning for a combination of 5 symbols is equal to 150 coins. Our developers created this pokie so simple and bright so that everyone can try their luck here.
Review and recommendations by the testing team
Mirror mirror pokie is a continuation of Fairytale legends series and, in my opinion, probably the best of the entire series, due to several factors at the same time:
- The developers did not limit us to a small number of pay lines at here, unlike the rest pokies of the series. They made active all possible combinations, namely 243, which is good for the player by giving small payments at the pokies. So, we get a large amount of this winning at the pokie due to the bigger number of lines for the same combination. For example 3 top symbols on the first reel, 2 on the second, 2 top symbols on the third reel, 1 on the fourth and 1 the top symbol on the fifth reel at Red riding hood pokie and at Mirror mirror pokie.
- It has better additional features than the others. In this game, we will consider not only free spins, the bonus game feature and coins, but also a quite large set of features in the usual spins. These features will allow you to increase your winnings, despite the small payments. Let us look at them in details:
- The mirror that falls out in the usual spins gives out a re-spin with the accumulation of one of the top symbols. The maximum possible variant is full screen, namely, 15 symbols. By the way, our testers managed to catch no more than 10 - 11 symbols while testing, which gives out the average number of bets.
- The fairy that flies to the centre gives out one of the two features: mirror described above, or 7 symbols (an average win (crystals, lanterns) or the top (girl or queen), which are put either on the first three reels or three central ones. During the tests, the pokie often delivers them well by ending spin. In this case, their total number reaches 11-12, and they close the remaining 2 reels.
- The fairy that flies to the right side gives out us the feature of the changing symbols after stopping the reels. In this case, it is guaranteed to change the symbols on all 5 reels, not like the central fairy which covers only 3 out of 5 reels. Also, their total number reaches 10 - 11, which results in big winnings.
- It is important to note that Fairy by flying from the left is a rare feature. During my testing, I watched it only once, despite the thousands of spins. As a result, this feature gives out the following: when placing boxes (the bonus symbol) on the first and the third reels and the lack of it on the fifth reel, Fairy can change 1 of 3 symbols on the box. In this case, we will get a bonus game.
- The bonus game includes free spins (in my opinion the most profitable in theory, but a zero result is possible), the bonus feature with a small, but guaranteed reward, and coins.
- As for me, the value of coins is not huge, and in fact, it is not the best choice. The bonus with the choice of stones gives out the average of x20 - 40 (there are good values with x50 for 1 stone, but rarely). As for the free spins features, besides the standard coincidences, during free spins, Mirror falls out, and unlike the usual spins, where it occurs only on the third reel, during the free spins features, it falls out on the first three reels. During my testing, I managed to catch Mirror from 1 to 7 times, out of 10 free spins. By the way, re-spins are both successful and unsuccessful. The average result of the bonus was x80 - x250 total bets. It is important to note that the frequency of falling out of the bonus (3 boxes) is quite low. However, you can compensate for this if you guess the playing card and pull out the desired game, as well as the good frequency of the additional features during the usual spins, about which we talked above.
- It was also noted that this pokie rarely provides various features. For example, Mirrors, Fairy and bonus, it often plays on the principle of one or the other or the third.
- During my testing, we noticed in several game sessions in some casinos, that if central Fairy does not fly for a long time (about 100 - 150 spins) and then it appears, then you should not hurry to leave this pokie.
The pokie has low dispersion. I consider that you cannot win a lot here (if only with few additional features or the bonuses in a row and with the good combinations), but it is also difficult to lose here. It is important to remember that this recommended balance of the stakes should be at least 100 - 150 bets. In my opinion, this pokie is good enough to complete the bonus requirements. Good luck :)

- The gold casket is the bonus symbol. It falls on 1, 3 and 5 reels. The bonus game will be available if you collect 3 symbols. By the way, the appearance of the bonus symbols on the 1st and 3rd reels can lead to the triggering of this bonus in the unsuccessful spin, because the pokie can put the missing symbol on the 5th reel. So, the bonus game is represented by one of three bonuses, which is chosen randomly.
