We can’t decide if we like the graphics or not, but one thing is for sure, this Unicorn Legend mobile slot is a horse of a different colour for NextGen Gaming.
Unicorns and fairies are nothing new in a slot theme, but this one feels oddly unfinished. As if the graphics designer had great inspiration to begin with and then half way through, got bored and rushed the finish.
The high cards are all represented, joined by flowers, owls, the titular unicorn and enchanted castles. There is even a little fairy moving back and forth across the logo in a way that’s very distracting and made us a little dizzy.
This theme definitely works better on the online slot version rather than the mobile.
Much like Medusa and Super Safari, this mobile game is one of the higher volatility NextGen slots. You’ll notice you’ll get plenty of pretty little wins, but you won’t be getting that many wins that get you your bet back. You’ll have to hit those 4 or 5 of a kind symbols in order to get any real impressive wins during the base game.
Better yet, is getting those high symbol wins during the free spins, which you have three choices – 20 free spins with small multipliers, 15 free spins with medium sized multipliers or 10 free spins with high multipliers. Our instinct, considering the volatility of the game, is to go less free spins but more multipliers, as we like the idea of pushing those wins to the max.
However, we tried them all, and have had good results on all, and bad results on all. Generally we found that getting about 30x our bet was expected, anything less and it feels like a wasted bonus feature.
Basically be prepared to budget your cash and hope for a good free spin round, otherwise this wild horse may leave you with you face flat in the mud and running away from you.

Wild: The Unicorn is the wild symbol rearing it's head in a magical beam on a win. It replaces everything but the celtic emblem scatter.
Scatter and Free Spins: Here is where the game tries to be clever, giving you the option of three different selections. We've tried them all several times, and we can tell you that there seems to be no difference to the results of which you pick. 40x our bet is the most we've ever gotten, but we suspect you can get much higher on a high multiplier on the wild, with a 5 of a kind.
You choice is:
This mobile casino game will pay as much as it wants to, regardless of which you use, and won't affect the variance very much. However we like the 10 free spins ourselves because... hey... we like the thrill of the hope of those BIG wins.
The theme of Unicorn Legend mobile slot doesn't sit well with us. On iPad's and Android tablets this is particularly obvious when you see the ugly brown background that belongs in a retirement home.
That said, it's an interesting slot game with some potential big wins, which is unusual for NextGen slots. We suspect this may lose some fans who are after a more fun and risk free experience for a theme that is light and fluffy.
