When you go down to the woods today you will be sure of a big surprise. For deep within the woods lies the realm of the faeries and they come alive at night. Luckily for you 1×2 Gaming have got you an all access pass to everything that happens within Faerie Nights. You are about to enter a game of stunning design and it has a great single feature too. All you need to do now is say ‘I believe in Faeries’ and you will gain access to all their secrets and riches!
Faerie Nights is a 5-reel, 25 fixed pay line slot that offers a tantalising 96% RTP, for anyone who believes in the fairy folk. The reels are beautifully designed to look as if they are floating inside a glade deep within the forest. With the outer frames of the reels made from twisted branches as well as some of the symbols too. Other symbols take inspiration from the magical world that this slot obviously resides in. Once you begin to spin the reels you will be treated to some lovely sounds, such as a rushing of wind as the reels spin which is actually quite enjoyable. There are also pan pipes, birds tweeting and other magical sounds tinkling along as you play, making the whole feel of the game quite ethereal in nature.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Faerie Nights begins at 25p per spin and can be increased up to £100 per spin. The only way to amend your bet is to click the coin stack at the lower left of the reels. It will expand a small bet screen up onto the reels and you can increase or decrease your total bet from here using the plus and minus symbols. Once happy with your bet, click on the spin button or the coin stack to return to the game once more.
Wild Symbol – An old wise wood spirit is your wild symbol in Faerie Nights, and he can land anywhere in view. He will substitute for all other symbols except the scatter symbol and the two bonus symbols that appear in the main feature. He is also an expanding wild, meaning he will expand up and down to fill the reel he lands on, helping to complete any potential wins on the reels.
Other Symbols – All the symbols in the game have been beautifully crafted and drawn in keeping with the theme. Higher paying symbols include a unicorn, blue fairy, a dwarf, butterfly, a blue flower and a purple mushroom. Lower paying symbols are the usual card symbols, A, K, Q and J but all drawn to look like tree branches intertwined with flowers.
Bonus Spins Feature – Once you have landed the three or more scatter symbols required, you will enter the bonus spins feature. Here you will be allocated with a number of spins to play through, with the addition of x2 extra symbols to help you create some bigger wins.
- 3 scatter symbols will award 7 bonus spins,
- 4 scatter symbols will award 9 bonus spins,
- 5 scatter symbols will award 11 bonus spins.
You will now also have the two following symbols in play, which add their own mini extras to the bonus spins game for you.
- Wisp Symbol – this is where an extra wild symbol is added, and it is in fact a sticky wild. This means when it lands on the reels it will remain in place for a random number of spins before disappearing.
- Blue Fairy Symbol – when the blue fairy lands on the reels during the bonus spins, she will award a x2 multiplier to all win’s present.
Whilst Faerie Nights only has one single feature in play, we found it didn’t actually create a negative impact on the game. In part, we feel this is down to the extra symbols that are in play during the feature, giving it a bit of a win boost for the round. Clever thinking on the part of 1×2 Gaming that is for sure. Lots of fun to be had playing this slot and when coupled with the frequent main game wins it makes this a crowd pleaser without a doubt. But then get into that bonus spins feature and that’s when the game really heats up. It can’t be retriggered which is a shame, as the initial bonus spin allocation is a little on the low side. However bigger wins can be created thanks to those extra feature symbols so it’s not a big issue. If you are into slots for the bonus spins, then Faerie Nights may not be for you. But we are sure once you give it a shot you will fine it is extremely playable and super fun.
