Review and recommendations by our testing team
- Forest Tale slot can be easily placed at the bottom of EGT slot rating, as it is one with the worst realization of its potential. Looking ahead: the maximum win was only 79x bets, and the average win varies within just a few bets, only periodically reaching 20x – 40x total bets.
- The slot is not good in the usual spins, where despite the potential of obtaining a combination costing more than 333x bets, it does not realize it. Most of the winnings are less than the nominal bet and only periodically reaches values of several bets, and wins in 10x+ bets are very rare.
- Additional instant winnings from scatter symbols are usually minimal and the winnings are 2x – 5x total bets (more than 8x could not be received), despite the potential for up to 200x bets (with five scatter). Also, together with an instant win, the bonus feature can be triggered but during testing, it was not possible to get it.
- The free spins feature is triggered while issuing a special bonus symbol on the 3 + 4 + 5 reels, where you have to choose from 12 sectors and like this to see the number of free spins, where the maximum number is up to 20 and the multiplier with the maximum value of x5. As it was written at the beginning, the maximum win received in the slot was only 79x, which was obtained at 14 free spins with x3. Average values of 30x – 40x bets could be achieved at 14-20 free spins with x2-x5. 7-14 free spins with x1-x2 bring an average of 2x to 15x total bets.
- Information about the risk game can be found here. Also, information about the JackPot game here.
Despite the frequent winnings in the usual spins and quite a frequent triggering of free spins (including a series of several features almost in a row), the slot still has a poor balance keeping. Due to the low popularity and small prize pool, the slot is often “Cold”, so, we recommend it to skip it if you want to fulfil the wagering requirements. Playing with real money is not recommended because of the poor realization of its (getting the big win here is almost impossible), or consider only short distances in an attempt to get a series of free spins from the begin of a session with the potential to receive a total win of 50x – 100x bets. It is possible to use the strategy of progressive betting for short distances.
