Hansel & Gretel Slot Review
Back in 2016, Net Entertainment launched the first of their Fairytale Legends games based on Little Red Riding Hood. The follow up to the game is now with us and it sees The Brothers Grimm’s Hansel & Gretel following in Red Riding Hood’s footsteps in the shape of a 5 reel multi payline slot.
How To Play
The fairy tale of Hansel & Gretel is well known. A woodman’s children are left in the woods by their abusive step-mother but by dropping stones they are always able to make their way home. However, on one occasion their trail of breadcrumbs are eaten by birds resulting them being lost. They soon find a gingerbread house but are kidnapped by a hungry witch who decides to eat Hansel. Gretel’s cunning saves the day and the children escape and live happily ever after with their father.
But how does all this fit into a Net Entertainment slot?
Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel allows you to play from 10p a spin up to £200. Adjust the coin value and level to determine your wager. The graphics are excellent and feature gems, hansel, gretel and a treasure chest. Win lines can be from any direction and even on the middle reels provided three gems of the same colour are on win lines.
Wild Re-Spins & Random Features
The game is features rich and includes stacked wild re-spins, random Fairy features (wonder spin, surprise and wild spin) and a Treasure Bonus. The latter activates when three treasure chests appear on the reels. You are invited to select one which will result in either free spins, a coin win on the Candy House bonus.
During the Candy House bonus you get to select three gems from a selection of 15. Each gem is worth a multiplier amount. All gems are slowly removed leaving you with the selected gems and possible values. At this stage you can either select a guaranteed win or gamble by making a choice from one of your original three gems.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel is an entertaining game but it has only a glancing nod to the original story. The witch plays a minimal role whilst the children’s father is totally overlooked. That said it’s good fun to play and a good addition to the slots series. We wonder which Fairy Tale will be the inspiration for the next Legends game?
