There are stories we hear as children and they stay in our memory until the end of our lives. Those stories have been here for generations, translated to many languages, adapted in different ways, but no matter how many times we hear them, they never get old.
One of those stories is a fairy tale of German origin, recorded by the Brothers Grimm more than two centuries ago. It is the story of Hansel and Gretel, the young children of a poor woodcutter, left in the woods by their starving parents. There they encounter a house made of candy, inhabited by a witch.
The witch wants to eat the poor children, but the youngins manage to outwit her and escape to safety and return to their home, where they live happily ever after.
This 2017 NetEnt 5-reel video slot with 10 paylines may not feature the witch, but it certainly doesn’t lack the magical and colourful scenery with matching soundtrack. Although the game is based on a fairy tale, it’s definitely a serious release when it comes to bonuses and payouts
Although 10 paylines may not be much, the wide range of coin value available will suit both those who’ll play it for fun and those who are looking to win serious cash.
Coin denomination starts at $0.01 and goes all the way up to $2, while the wager itself ranges from $0.10 to $200.
As we’ve already mentioned, the game offers many features and bonuses, which can prove extremely lucrative.
Stacked Wild symbols can appear on reels 2 and 4 during the Main Game, and when they land covering the entire reel, the Stacked Wild Re-spin feature is triggered. While this feature is active, Stacked Wild symbols can additionally land on reels 1 and 5.
The game has 3 Random Features which are, as the name suggests, randomly activated during the Main Game:
Fairy Wonder Spin - when triggered, a cluster of 5 up to 9 game logo symbols appear on the reels for one spin.
Fairy Surprise - gets triggered only if there’s no win. Afterwards, a symbol is randomly selected and other ones will turn into that symbol until a win is awarded.
Fairy Wild Spin - 2 full stacks of Wild appear randomly on the reels 1, 2, 4 and 5, awarding a Stacked Wild Re-spin.
3 Bonus symbols landing on reels 1, 3 and 5 during the Main Game will trigger one of the Bonus features. There are 3 Bonus features:
Candy House Bonus - the player picks 3 items, with each one hiding a certain multiplier. He can later choose to receive their average value, or to pick just one of them.
Free Spins - the player receives 10 Free Spins.
Coin Win - awards the player with a win equaling the current bet multiplied by 15.
The magic forest sure holds a lot of opportunities to win. So be sure to check out this medium variance title, with a RTP of 96.71%.

“Just because it has the NetEnt name next to it, doesn’t mean it’s automatically high quality.Trying out new things can always be hit and miss. And while we appreciate the developers trying something new, this slot was definitely not ready for launch.”
