Mirror Mirror Slot Review
Net Entertainment have added to their Fairytale Legends series of slots with Mirror Mirror. The launch of the game is a surprise given the UKGC directives on slots and children. However, we suspect that the name Mirror Mirror rather than Snow White is perhaps a concession to this from the designers.
Fairytale Legends: Mirror Mirror
This slot is a 5 reel, 3 row, 243 payline game. It’s based on the tale of Snow White – the young girl who befriends seven dwarfs, eats a poison apple and irks an evil witch who is obsessed with a talking mirror. All these wonderful elements, imagined by The Brothers Grimm, make for a game that’s potentially full of character. However, because of the aforementioned UKGC conditions, this game manages to imply the tale it’s based on without ever actually referring to it by name.
This is because Mirror Mirror focuses mainly on a Princess and Queen character. We know who they refer to, but they are never named. During gameplay the Princess – who looks uncannily like who you think it should – stands in a forest scene to the left of the reels. The main reel icons include playing card symbols (9, 10, J, K, Q, A), jewels and a lantern. The highest paying symbol is the FL (Fairytale Legends) symbol – this pays x150 for 5 symbols.
Mirror Mirror features a number of bonus features. These include Mirror Re-spin which occurs when the Mirror symbol appears on reel 3 during normal play. Joining the re-spin are three random in-game features: Fairy Magic Spin, Fairy Surprise and Fairy Mirror. These features change symbols on the reels to hopefully generate win lines.
The main bonus feature activates when three or more gold chest scatter symbols appear on the reels. There are 3 bonus features possible during this rounds: free spins, mining bonus and coin wins. Players receive 10 spins during free spins or a x15 win for the coin feature. The mining bonus is where the dwarfs are hiding out – crack open jewels to reveal coin wins.
The Fairest Of Them All
Those who know the fairytale that this game is based on will be familiar with the “Mirror Mirror on the wall phrase”. Therefore is this slot the fairest of them all. We’re not enamoured if truth be known, but that’s mainly due to the subject matter. We like our slots with a bit more bite and oomph. Mirror Mirror is a little bit too “nice”.
However, if you’re keen on gentler slot games then Mirror Mirror does have appeal. It’d be nice to know how often the bonus features materialise because we never got close to finding them during gameplay. Wagering on the game starts from 10p but you can wager up to £100. The slot is designed for play on mobile, desktop and tablet.
The theoretical return to player is 96.48%
