But as it happens in fairy tales - the children not only returned home safely but also dealt with the wicked witch. So be sure that Happy End is waiting for you even if you play for free the video slot. The slot will be pleased with numerous bonus features and returns up to 96.71%.
Personal testers opinion about Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel
If you are keen on the story about Hansel and Gretel, it will be necessary to try your luck here, with famous characters from the fairy tale. This slot is the second from the Fairy Tales series. The first was Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood video slot. Shortly speaking, it has similar settings of the slots, the same stretching winning cycle and the same manner of gradual selection of balance with increasing intervals between the large winning. My conclusion is the neutral recommendations for playing for the real money.
Review and recommendations from the testing team
This slot is the second in the FairyTale Legends series. It is not much better than its previous slot, and just like Red Riding Hood, in my opinion, it is rather mediocre if comparing it with Mirror Mirror, again it is due to the small number of active lines and the payouts you get on them. Just like the other slots of the series, it has not only a bonus game but also extra features in the normal game mode.
- Unlike its predecessor, it has a big pro in the normal game mode, it will regularly drop the Wild reels, but in most cases, you will not get a big win from them, as it usually gives 1-2, sometimes 3.
- In theory, the feature when the Fairy appears in the centre of the screen and randomly triggers the extra Wild reels (from 1 to 3) gives not a bad chance to hit a big win while expecting the other Wild reels and the top symbols. In practice, during our tests, several times we managed to get 4 Wild reels on the sides, but as a rule, it does not give top symbols between them.
- The Fairy that appears from the right triggers the feature of changing the symbols after the reels stop, in this case, she will definitely change the symbols across all 5 reels, that may give you not a bad winning, provided that the symbols are on an active line, but still, it will be lower than at Mirror Mirror.
- The chance you get a bonus game is quite low. It is not difficult to select a map in order to get the bonus you want, you may easily guess the maps after the second and the subsequent bonuses. As in other slots of the series, you may choose the coins, the bonus game or the free spins.
- Unlike the Red Riding Hood slot where the player has no part in it, here you may choose what you want. The maximum winning is х120. By the way, during our tests, we managed to guess this value several times. You may want not to risk by choosing the average value of 3 choices. Unlike its predecessor, it is more generous and gives х120 quite often.
- The free spins here vary. Despite the fact that it is one the few NetEnt slots, which, like Novomatic and Amatic, may give a large number of retriggers and more than 100 free spins, the winning you will get from them are quite low, again it is due to the small number of lines and the payouts you get on them. During our tests, the winnings we got from the free spins were up to х150, in most cases they varied between х20-40, which is extremely low, considering how frequent they drop.
- The slot has a low dispersion, but unlike its predecessor, it keeps the balance up better and is, therefore, more suitable for playing the bonus money and fulfilling the wagering requirements, you should know this is still interested in playing these series of slots.
- It has a recommended min 200 stakes.
- Ps: Note that providers regularly change the slot scripts, which may lead to a different slot behaviour. The BNC team will do its best to keep you updated on the changes made! Remember that these are just some of the schemes and examples, you could find a completely different slot behaviour!
