In a shady glen, at the centre of an enchanted wood, lives the Acorn Pixie slot… who loves taking bribes.
This 5 reel 30 payline video slot is a bit of a strange creature. Created by Scientific Games, but technically a WMS slot game, it tries to come across as enchanting, but it’s actually kinda predatory.
Mostly because you see a little button on the top of the screen which says ‘Buy Me’. This is a tempting, but dangerous button to press.
At which point you’ll have a chance to buy between 6 and 12 games for between 20 and 100 in cash.
And that amount doesn’t change, regardless of how much you are betting, meaning your chances of getting your costs back are little to none.
We tried, we tested this button time and time again, and only once did we manage to make our bet back.
The thing is, you don’t need this button in order to enjoy this Acorn Pixie slot machine. It is a decent game, with good 5 of a kind wins, and a fun free spin bonus round.
These free spin bonus rounds pay well too, especially as you go from 5×3 reels to 5×6 reels, but don’t get too excited, the value of the symbols lower.
A little less exciting than in the White Rabbit slot, but you don’t get the feature any more often.
As pretty as this is, the ‘Buy Bonus’ taunts you into pressing it. Especially when, after 200 odd spins, you still haven’t gotten the free spins in this Acorn Pixie mobile slot.
But unless you are already betting 100 a spin, it’s rarely worth it, and unless you have the patience of a saint, or get lucky, you might find yourself jumping ship to a game with a little more action.
The Nemo’s Voyage mobile game anyone?

Wilds: One of the many pretty pixies in this fairies slot is the wild symbols, and she replaces all other symbols to create wins.
Every once in a wild, a couple of autumn leaves will fall on screen and a wild that is two symbols high and wide will cover 4 spaces of these reels.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 will trigger 7 free spins.
At this point you'll start playing on reels that are 6 symbols high and 5 reels wide. On most of the spins (but not all) anything from 2 to 5 wild symbols will land on the reels.
These will stay sticky till the end of the Acorn Pixie bonus games.
Buy Bonus Feature: When you press the Buy Bonus button you'll get three possible choices:
All but the 12 bonus games are below the RTP of the normal slot game, and definitely not worth your while.
However, 100 in cash is a lot to spend when, on most occasions, you rarely get your bet back.
We were torn when we were writing this Acorn Pixie slot review.
On one hand, this is an fairly decent 30 payline game with wilds, scatters and free spins. Nothing out of the ordinary.
There's even some large wild symbols to keep things interesting from time to time.
But honestly, unless you hit the free spins early, this is just passing time with little results.
The Buy Bonus button is just for the high limit slot players, but then we'd probably still pay for one of the many bonus in the Rainbow Riches Pick n Mix game.
