With 1,296 ways to win, this Pixie Gold mobile slot might look complicated but it’s actually much simpler than it seems, with a playful easy rhythm.
This is a Lightning Box game that is much easier to play than to explain. The reason is because you are introduced, straight away, to what looks like 8 reels, with the middle 4 reels bring four symbols high, and the two side reels only 3 symbols high.
Scroll down and look at the picture. We’ll wait.
You got the image of the slot in your mind? Good. So now this is where we confused the hell out of you and tell you that there is actually only 5 reels in this game, much like in any other slot in the NextGen portfolio.
Basically, the 4 high middle 4 columns only count as 1 reel. Think of it as a reel with 16 symbols – this is reel 3, or the reelfecta reel, as far as the Pixies Gold slot is concerned.
It means that you only need to get two symbols on reel 1 and 3, and one symbol anywhere within the centre four columns, to get a 3 of a kind win. If you get more than one symbol over those 16 symbols, you’ll get multiple 3 of a kind wins, not a four or a five of a kind win.
For that, you’ll need to get that same symbol on reel 4 and then 5 – the smaller reels to the right of the mega columns in the middle.
Honestly, it’s not as complicated as it sounds. You want at least a couple of symbols on the smaller reels, and as many symbols as you can managed in those four central columns.
Which is where the Pixie spin comes in.
That’s pretty much the only feature in this pretty little fairy slot, and as usual, it’s not triggered in the usual way, we’ve gone into more detail in the bonus features below.
One free respin might not sound like much, but one symbol will be randomly chosen to be lucky; in that you’ll get a tons more show up in the reeflecta reel, or reel 3.
We’ve even had all 16 symbols all be the same in one very lucky spin. You also get the wild symbol show up on reel 2, not just the massive reel 3.
You rarely go 50 spins without catching a couple of re-spins either.
Considering how differently this Pixie Gold slot game tried to do everything, once you get into a rhythm of play, you’ll notice it’s remarkably simple.
More importantly, unlike the more famous Pixies of the Forest slot machine by IGT, this little Lightning Box game pays out often, and the re-spin gives you enough 10x to 20x your bet wins that you can see your balance slowly move upwards.
There’s enough surprises here to ensure this fairytale has a happen ending.

Wild Symbol: The blonde fairy, or pixie, is the wild symbols and substitutes for all other symbols except the king star. She only shows up on reel 3 (the one with the 16 symbols) during the base game.
Pixie Free Spin Rules: See the tiny little mouse at the bottom of the reels carrying a cart?
That little mouse moves along each reel on each spin. If a King Star symbol lands on the reel above the cart, you win one free spin.
The reason it's special, is that for once, the pixie wild symbol can also show up on reel 2. More importantly, one symbol will be chosen to be lucky, and will simply have a better chance of appearing in vast number in reel 3.
Of course, it means you still need to get some of those same symbols on reel 1, 2, and preferably 4 and 5, but your odds are pretty good you'll end up with a win or two.
We've rarely won much over 20 times our bet, but the free re-spins come often enough that it hasn't bothered us.
Will this Pixie Gold mobile slot make your stinking rich? Much like the fairytales, you'll rarely find much about to brag big in the morning.
That said, that's not the point of fairytales; they are there to entertain and remind you that you can get a happy ending even if you don't end up marrying the prince.
This is an easy playing game, a great one to start with on the way to harder hitting slots, like Play'n GO's Enchanted Crystals, to help you build up your Pixie gold in the most fun, if different, way possible.
