With beautiful graphics and potentially huge multipliers this Sylvan Spirits slot is all set to charm you and break your spirit, all at the same time.
We have to admit that it took us a while to decide on the rating of this Sylvan Spirits slot review.
We love the slot game theme. It’s beautifully set in a mystical woodland full of runes and gorgeous forest creatures, with a stunning dryad as the 2×2 mega wild that pops, from time to time on the reels.
All the numbers look good too. With 5×4 reels, 1024 ways to win and a low minimum bet of 0.10 a spin, it’s very inclusive of all gambler’s budgets. The RTP is set at a good 95.77% and you can win 7656x your bet. That’s a whole load of cash.
The problem comes with the fact that you really need those multipliers to make this paytable work for you. Which makes sense as with 1024 ways to win, even wins can’t get you anything big.
But Sylvan Spirits slot wins with the low paying rune symbols will rarely get you more than your bet back, even if you get one on every reel. So the animals are your main chance of catching 4x or 10x your bet in the base game.
Unless, of course, that mega wild Dryad shows up. When she creates wins with the symbols, she then adds a multiplier on that symbol for the next win – usually somewhere around 8x to 11x.
If you get another win with the dryad, that multiplier can increase again up to 99x. But the reality is that mostly it just resets on the next win.
All your hopes rest in the free spin bonus, and when you catch it, it brings some explosive wins. Why? Because every win, with or without the Dryad, will increase the multiplier on that symbol.
Better yet, it doesn’t reset even on a win. It just keeps on building. There’s a real build-up of excitement if you manage to get enough wins in a row with the same symbols.
Anyone who has ever played on mobile slot machines knows that getting multiple wins over 10 spins is hard enough, getting multiple wins on the same symbols over 10 spins is harder.
Not impossible – there are huge wins here. But this Sylvan Spirits slot game feels like enough hard work that we can’t recommend it as a must-play. That said, the numbers are all here for big wins if you have the patience and budget to keep playing.

Symbol Win Multiplier & Mega Mystic Wild: Each symbol has its own win multiplier displayed above the reels.
The multipliers are increased when associated symbols participate in a win in combination with a mega mystic wild. This is a 2x2 wild symbol that guarantees a win.
You get a multiplier according to the number of winning symbols involved. This multiplier is applied to the next win with that symbol and then resets.
Unless the next win is with another Mega wild. In which case the multiplier will be applied to the win, and increased again - up to a maximum of 99x.
Free Spins: Get 3 free spin symbol and you'll trigger the bonus game. During the bonus game, all wins increase the win multiplier on the symbols, even if a mega mystic symbol isn't part of the win. It also doesn't reset after a win.
We love the look of this Sylvan Spirits mobile slot, and we can't deny that with 1024 ways to win and lots of multipliers, there's not a lot of potential here.
That top win of over 7,000x your bet is, by itself, big enough to give this Sylvan Spirits slot review more stars.
But in the end, the frustration of the original paytable doesn't make up for the huge amount of work you need to put in to get those multipliers.
If only the free spins came a little more often. But then again this is a super volatile game and it feels it, so if you are used to being a little patient, you may yet enjoy a more subdued game set in beautiful woodlands.
