Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel Slot Machine

Following the popularity of NetEnt'sJack and the Beanstalk, which then inspired Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood, there's a certain inevitability to the fairytale theme being pursued again in the world of 3D slots.

And so NetEnt's announcement of a new release, Hansel and Gretel, is no surprise, but it's certainly warmly welcomed.

Very excitingly, we got the opportunity to test it in advance of its release on April 24th. So, of course, we grabbed a bag of breadcrumbs and jumped at the chance. Will this game follow in the shadowy wake of Red Riding Hood or tread its own path?

She's Got the Look…

Tying in perfectly with Red Riding Hood in style and aesthetic, animation is high-quality, clean and uncluttered with crisp graphics that are charming, but, don't feel excessively cutesy, given the theme.

It features the same style of beautiful, misty, etherealrolling backdrop, although this one is a summery night sky with floating glow wormsand Hansel and Gretel walking along with the spinning reels to left and right.

The music is a gently mystical, atmospheric backdropwith strings and chimes which suits the theme and, more importantly, you could easily listen to for a long stretch.

… And the Substance Over 10 Paylines

It's a 5x3 reel, 10 payline slot with bet ranges from 0.10-200 creditssuiting all budgets. However, it's medium-high volatility, so you can expect considerable spins with no payouts and will need to manage your bankroll. However, these lower payoutwins on the reels arebalanced with a plethora of Features and the promise of some big wins in bonus.

Like the first in this series, NetEnt have gone all out with a jam-packed hamper of sweet treats here - there are Random Features, Bonus Features, Free Spins, Stacked Wild Re-Spins, and Wild substitutions.

Not a Breadcrumb in Sight

I do wonder if I could identify the exact theme of this game if the title didn't spell it out. It feels fairly generically 'Brothers Grimm' at times with very few of the iconic images - gingerbread, witch, breadcrumbs - that you associate with Hansel and Gretel specifically.

The low-paying symbols are four brightly-coloured shiny shapes - presumably boiled sweets, but could easily be mistaken for gems. They offer payout rates of up to 40 credits for 5OAK.

Mid-range symbols are a raggedy-looking little girl and boy - Hansel and Gretel, presumably - each offering 100 credits for 5OAK. TheFairytale Legends logo offers the highest of the symbol payouts at 400 for 5OAK. The Stacked Wilds are a tile with a section of cobbled path and a white dove (pecking crumbs from Hansel's trail?).

These aren't spectacular sums of money and the reels don't offer 5OAK readily, so NetEnt are relying heavily on their bonus features to tempt and retain players.
