What is this mobile slot about?

The second in the Fairytale Legends slot series, it’s time to head into the deep dark woods with this Hansel and Gretel mobile slot.

The first Fairytale Legends game, the Red Riding Hood slot machine, was generally well received.

And when you first load Hansel and Gretel you’ll be forgiven for thinking that other than the theme now having a blue rather than red background, and two new characters, the features all seem very similar.

And you’ll be right. They are similar. But not identical.

In fact, the subtle differences make this Hansel and Gretel Fairytale Legends slot just a little more interesting.

The fairy is back, and so are those wild respins

What’s wonderful about this series of slots is just the sheer amount of bonus game features you can find hiding in these 5×3 reels.

This Hansel and Gretel slot however, does it over 10 payline (rather than 20) and changed the sticky wilds into stacked wilds.

Why does that make a difference? Honestly, the amount you can win here is about the same as little Red, but the single payline wins are bigger.

Meaning it just feels more satisfying when you get a big win on a 4 or 5 of a kind win.

Better yet, this Hansel and Gretel slot game pays whenever three adjacent symbol come together on a winning payline (explained below).

In short: this NetEntertainment slot game has more wins, better features, and bigger potential wins in a single payline.

This Hansel and Gretel slot has 7 bonus features

There 3 random features which can appear after any spin, there’s the stacked wilds with respins, and 3 bonus feature when you hit the treasure chest scatter; including a fun mini-game, free spins, and instant cash.

Which means, this Fairytale Legend Hansel and Gretel slot online has a beautiful mix of features that allow you to keep spinning, and gives you the occasional big wins.

Players who enjoy video slots with bonus games, much like in the excellent Koi Princess or the Guns n Roses slot, should try this Hansel and Gretel game.

Personally, we find the theme a little lazy, which is why we can’t quite give it a 5 star slot review, but it came very, very, close.

In-game bonus features

Pays anywhere on the Reels: So instead of wins happening from left to right, or right to left, these pay whenever there is a succession of symbols starting anywhere on the bet line.

So for example, you can get a 3 of a kind win on reels 1, 2, 3. Or on reels 2, 3, 4. Or on reel 3, 4, 5.

Stacked Wilds: The red brick road with the dove eating the bread (we guess the kids are too stupid to follow a road, and therefor need the bread?) is the wild symbol and comes stacked on reels 2 and 4.

Stacked Wilds Re-spin: Whenever a stack of wilds cover the whole reel, you get a wild re-spin, where you can now also get a stack of wilds on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5.

As long as another stack keeps covering the reels, you'll keep getting re-spins.

Comes surprisingly often, considering it generally pays well and is the main feature of this Hansel and Gretel mobile slot game.

Random Bonus Features:

  • Fairy Wonder Spin: The fairy will appear randomly to place 5 - 9 of the Hansel and Gretel slot logo on the screen for a single spin. This is the highest paying symbol of the lot, and almost always pays out, thanks to the symbols paying anywhere on the reels.
  • Fairy Surprise: If you don't get a win, the fairy might appear and select lower paying random symbol on screen and start turning them into other symbols until a win is created.
  • Fairy Wild Spin: The best of the lot as you can 2 wild reels (and the wins that come with it) and well as a wild respin with further wins, or even more stacked wilds. That's one awesome fairy.

Treasure chest Bonus Features:3 bonus scatter chest symbols anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5 trigger a random choice of 3 bonuses; much like in the Vikings Go Wild slot game.

  • Candy House Bonus: You'll be taken to a second screen mini-game where you pick 3 out of 15 pieces of candy. each candy equal a multiplier, and these multipliers will be removed until you are left with only 3 possible amounts (for each of the candy picked). You can then either choose to get a guarantee average of the 3, or try your luck to get the bigger multiplier by picking one of the 3 original pieces of candy.
  • Free spin bonus: Not only do you get stacked wilds on all reels except reel 3, but every time a single treasure chest appears on screen, you'll get an extra +2 spins. You start with 10 Hansel and Gretel slot free spins, but usually end up playing around 14 or 16.
  • Instant cash bonus: The least interesting of the 3 bonuses, but still generally a nice sum of about 10x to 20x your bet.

Closing thoughts

In tiny, subtle, ways this is easily the best of the Fairytale Legends slot games.

Not only do you get less paylines, so a smaller minimum bet, but the fact you get wins whenever the symbols are next to each other on a payline keeps the game going quickly.

Add that the wonder spin gives you the highest paid symbol, instead of the medium symbol, and stacked wilds instead of sticky wilds, and we'll pick this Hansel and Gretel slot on mobile of Red Riding Hood every time.

The theme is ok, nothing as special as the Jungle Spirit slot by the same provider, but you don't really care when you've got 7 bonus feature to encounter in these deep dark woods.
