If you have seen our Fairytale Legends – Red Riding Hood review then you will already be well aware that we have always been quite fond of the fairy tale theme and it helped immensely that it was a great game in its own right. For a while, even though we expected it to be the first game of a series as the name implied, we had concluded that it must have been a one off. Then, out of nowhere, came Fairytale Legends – Hansel and Gretel and we were probably more excited than anyone else to get our hands on it. As with most slots series, the games are very similar in terms of both the look and feel and the features, but that means more options and we feel that players are going to absolutely love this one!
What to Expect
The graphics on the first Fairytale Legends slot were very good indeed, and while the improvements are certainly subtle, we feel like the looks here on Fairytale Legends – Hansel and Gretel are potentially even better! We can’t even put our fingers on why – the game just feels smoother. Anyway, there are ten lines, so it is nice and simple to play, but the wins can still come out of nowhere as they do not need to start from the first reel. Land three of a kind spanning reels three, four and five, for example, and you will win the same as if that combination was on reels one, two and three – explaining why the specific win line number has been halved since the first game.
The wilds are prolific here on this slot too, with the bird on the road being the symbol in question. It can land on any reel, but also in stacks on reels two and four. Cover either reel completely with wilds and that stack will stick in place while a respin plays out, and it is now possible to get wild stacks on all but the third reel. If the stacks keep on landing, the respins will keep on coming and that is not all the base game action. The random fairy features return from the first game too, and this can see mid and high value symbols being added to the board to complete wins, symbols being transformed with the same goal or stacked wilds that will, in turn trigger the previous base game bonus.
The treasure chest is integral to proceedings on Fairytale Legends – Hansel and Gretel once again, and landing one on reels one, three and five will award the option of a cash win, a pick bonus in the candy house or our favourite of the lot, that being free spins. There, ten spins are awarded to players and the wild stacks can now land on all but the third reel by default. Every chest that appears on the board during free spins will also add two more games to the remaining total.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
The first game in the Fairytale Legends series was good, and this one could well be even better. As noted, there are definite similarities between the two, but enough differences to allow both games to stand out in their own right. We recommend both, and while we would lean towards this one being slightly better, you are more than welcome to try both and find out for yourself when you head to one of the great mobile casino apps recommended above!
