Fairytale Legends Hansel & Gretel : Pay-All-Ways. Respins, 3 Random Bonus Features, 3 Bonus Games
Fairytale Legends Hansel & Gretel is NetEnt's follow up to the first FL series with the Red Riding Hood theme. Although the random and bonus game features are similar, this Fairytale Legends Hansel & Gretel edition is definitely bigger and more rewarding.
First off, matched groupings of consecutively appearing symbols are evaluated as wins regardless of where the arrangement commences. No leftmost reel rule, for as long as the series of identical symbols is aligned within the confines of a pay pattern. Secondly, the Wild Symbols are built as full-reel images, a configuration that liberally brings substitute icons either in Reel 2 and 4; and possibly, even in Reel 1.
Fairytale Legends Hansel & Gretel : Wild Symbol and Stacked Wilds Respin Feature
The image of a Cobblestone Wall serves as Stacked Wild Symbols. The Wall Wild covers an entire column, and may appear in part or in whole in Reels 2 and 4. A full-reel display has great significance, because every such occurrence triggers a Stacked Wilds Respin.
Stacked Wilds Respin Feature is a bet-free turn that launches every time a full-reel Wall Wild image emerges either in Reel 2 or Reel 4. During the respin, the triggering Stacked Wilds remains locked in position. Respins may continue, if Reels 2 and/or 4 returns with another full reel image of the Wall Wild. An added feature to the Respin Bonus is the possible emergence of a full-reel Wall Wild in Reel 1, which further increases the possibility of retriggering more respins and of hitting multiple winning combinations.
Similar to the Red Riding Hood Respin reward, the Stacked Wilds Respin of this game also occurs naturally as part of the random Fairy Wild Spin Bonus.
Fairytale Legends Hansel & Gretel : Random Main Game Bonus Features
In keeping with the Fairtale Legends standard main game fares, a Fairy appears to activate one of three (3) bet-free respins:
Fairy Wonder Spin – In this Fairtytale Legends Hansel & Gretel online slot, the Fairy also adds a cluster of five (5) to nine (9) identical images. Yet unlike the Sprite in the Red Riding Hood slot that adds a cluster of the lesser paying symbols, the Hansel & Gretel Fairy adds overlays of the FL Logo, the highest-paying icon of the game. Three, four, or five FL Logo emblems appearing consecutively within a pay pattern, award coin wins of 20, 60, or 400, respectively.
Fairy Surprise – is a random respin that likely occurs only if a paid spin produced negative results. The Fairy chooses a symbol from those displayed by the non-winning outcome, and uses the designated symbol in replacing other images. Starting with the least paying icons, the symbol replacement actions continue until a winning combination is formed.
Fairy Wild Spin is a random feature that is guaranteed to bring on the Stacked Wilds Respin Feature. Two (2) full-reel images of the Wall Wilds will be added to Reels 1, 2, and/or 5, naturally triggering a Stacked Wilds Respin of the non-Wild reels. The respins continue if any of the spinning reels return with another full-reel display of the Wall Wilds. All emerging Wall Wilds will stay locked in position during each respin bout.
Fairytale Legends Hansel & Gretel : Bonus Game Features
Similar to Red Riding Hood Fairytale Legends, Hansel & Gretel also offers 3 types of bonus games for players to select as sources of extra wins; an Instant-Coin Win reward, the Free-Spins Round, and the theme-related Candy House Segment.
Instant Coin Wins– are cash rewards equivalent to 15x the Total Bet, revealed by selecting one of three (3) Treasure Chest icons that triggered the Bonus Game.
Free-Spins Round initially awards 10 bet-free spins. More bonus spins come along every time Treasure Chest icons land on Reel 2. One, two, three Treasure Chest images taking positions in Reel 2 after a bonus spin, correspondingly retrigger 2, 4, or 10 additional free games.
Candy House Bonus is a Pick and Click feature to which bonus game players select any 3 of 15 Hard Candy images holding a Mystery Multiplier. All Multiplier Factors, except those held by the selected candies, disappear from the screen. However, before making a final selection, players are given the option to continue by unraveling one Mystery Multiplier, or end the game by accepting the average value of the three Mystery Factors. This bonus game though does not guarantee that the Mystery Multiplier about to be revealed will be greater than the value of the Multiplier offered.
Fairytale Legends Hansel & Gretel , a 10-payline edition of NetEnt's FL video slot series; considers matched groupings of icons as wins, even if not originating from the leftmost reel. The flexible icon-matching rule is further enhanced with Stacked Wilds that trigger respins. The game carries on with the standard FL Random Bonus Features and 3 Bonus Game Choices that may prove to be more rewarding than the Red Riding Hood FL features.
