If you go down to the woods today, don’t be too surprised at what you will find. For this is where the fairies dwell and they love a little flutter too. NextGen Gaming have paired up with these gambling fairies, to bring you this fun and quirky game. Set inside a fairy glen and waiting for new players to join them, it’s time to shout, ‘I believe’ and play Fairies Forest.
Fairies Forest is a 5-reel, 25 pay line slot that offers a bewitching RTP of just 95.3% for players. As we mentioned above, the game is set inside a beautiful scene. It looks as if you have just arrived inside a magical fairy glen, with flowers, trees and an ethereal feel to the background. Unfortunately, there isn’t a matching feel with the sounds, because there is no music playing at all; strange we know!
Symbols all lend inspiration from the theme and even the usual card symbols have a bit of extra design work added to them. Higher value symbols are represented by a bird, fairy dust, mushrooms and a flower, with lower values being A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 with vines wrapped around them.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Fairies Forest begins at 1p per line in play and can be upped to £2 per line in play. This means for the player that spins can cost from 1p per spin, upto the maximum of £50 per spin. Change up your active pay lines and the cost per line in play, with the plus and minus symbols on each section. Once you are happy with your bet it’s just a case of hitting spin and away you go!
Wild Symbol – Your wild symbol in Fairies Forest is none other than a beautiful fairy. She will substitute for all other symbols except the scatter. She will only land on reels 2, 3 or 4 and has her own mini feature too.
Scatter Symbol – Sparkling away on the reels is your scatter symbol and it is a view of the fairy glen at night. Landing three or more of these scatter symbols anywhere in view will trigger the feature for you. Scatter wins are also in play here on Fairies Forest, meaning if you land 2 or more on the reels you will bag an extra cash sum on top of any other line wins.
- 2 scatter symbols will award x2 your bet amount as an extra win,
- 3 scatter symbols will award x5 your bet amount as an extra win,
- 4 scatter symbols will award x20 your bet amount as an extra win,
- 5 scatter symbols will award x100 your bet amount as an extra win.
Expanding Wild Feature – If you land your fairy wild symbol on reels 2, 3 or 4, she may become an expanding wild. If there is a potential win on the reels which the fairy wild can complete, she will expand to fill all positions on the reel. Thus, completing any of the potential wins available, meaning more wins for you which is always a bonus.
Bonus Spins Feature – Land three or more of the sparkly woods scatter symbol to trigger this feature. You will now be allocated with 10 bonus spins to play through and the expanding wild feature is also activated here. Every time the fairy wild expands to complete a win, that win will have a x3 multiplier added to it! You can also retrigger this feature multiple times by simply landing three or more scatter symbols. There are no limits to the amount of times the bonus spins can be retriggered.
Gamble Feature – If you wish to take things a step further on Fairies Forest, there is always the gamble feature! On every winning spin you will be able to take the chance to double or quadruple your win. Hit the gamble button and you will be taken to a new screen and offered a card face down. You need to decide whether you want to guess the correct colour of the card, or the correct suit. Guessing the right colour will double your win and the correct suit will quadruple your win. You can guess up to 5 times, if you guess correctly each time. After the fifth correct guess you and your winning will be returned to the main game. However, guess incorrectly at any point and you will lose everything you have just accumulated and will be returned to the game.
Fairies Forest is a stunning slot with some amazing extras added in. NextGen Gaming have once again created a brilliant game to attract players of all experience. On the whole it is easy to follow, fun to play and the wins are fast paced in both the main and bonus games. The bonus game triggers relatively often and once in there is the chance to retrigger again. If you feel like you want to use the gamble feature that is certainly up to you. But you could end up losing a lot more than you gained by entering the feature, which seems counterproductive.
