Where to play?
Once again Yggdrasil brings to life the epic French fairy tale of Beauty & The Beast in video slots format. The game comes with 20 paylines, 5 reels and 3 bonus modes that is triggered randomly. You’ll note that there is a ‘Golden Bet‘ (extra cost to play with it) feature that gives you two featured picks during the Free spins instead of one, that said it must be activated before its full benefits can be reaped. The free spins feature when triggered awards you 10 free spins but it can be re-triggered offering you an extra 10.
The slots can be played not only desktops (PCs) but on mobile phones like Androids, iPhones, iPads or tablets for real money or for free. Beauty & The Beast sports clear-cut visuals that’s laced with random wilds, nudge reels, synced reels, a Free Spins and a Golden Bet feature which significantly increases wins during the free spins when activated. Against the backdrop of the reels you’ll see an enchanting theater with 6 low value icons and the Beauty & the Beast symbol.
During the main there are 3 bonus modes that can be randomly triggered giving you three servants with synced reels, up to 4 random wilds and nudged reels. The slots has a return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.4% but when the ‘Golden Bet’ feature is active it goes from a low to a medium variance slots. Beauty & the Beast slots offers a top non-progressive jackpot of 5,000 coins.
Players can start spinning the reels for real cash from as little as 20 pence up to £100 per spin. Before you play make sure that you selected the right coin denomination so that it reflects your bankroll accurately. The usual customization options such as audio, ‘Auto Play’ ‘Line Bet’ and coin denomination settings makes the game more convenient for play.
It’s not often one gets a bunch of bonus modes during the base game but in this case there are 3 of them and each is represented by a servant:
- The Chef: The same symbol is shown when a combination of 3 symbols for one spins is shown on the 3 middle reels as synchronized.
- The Butler: A winning combination can be improved should 1 of the reel nudges step one position up or down.
- The maid feature: Two to four wilds will be added to reels randomly.
This feature can be used at your own discretion but when used note that it will cost you a bit more and that the game becomes more volatile when it’s active. However, when active you’ll receive a choice of 3 options and the payouts are way better:
- Boost: You must fork out an extra 5 coins per spin, during the free spins you will receive 2 feature picks and not just 1.
- Nudge: It will cost you an extra 15 coins per spin, the reels nudge up and down for 1 position should you get 2 or 4 free spins symbols making it easier for you to trigger the free spins feature.
- Boost and Nudge: If you want to play with this feature on it will cost you an extra 30 coins per spin, you can benefit from both the Boost and Nudge options.
If you can afford it activate the ‘Golden Bet’ feature since it’s worth its weight in gold during the free spins feature especially when 3 or more free spins icons pitch. Three scatter symbols awards you 10 free spins, 4 gives you 10 free spins along with 1,000 coins while 5 scatters not only gives you 10 free spins but a whopping cash prize of 5,000 coins!
If you play without the Golden Bet feature you must pick one of the 3 modifiers (Chef, Butler or Maid) for the free spins, if the feature is activated you’ll receive 2 modifiers. It goes without saying that the best option here is to shoot for The Maid and The Butler, reason being you’ll receive 4 wilds along with nudges which gives you superb winning combinations.
Yggdrasil’s Beauty & The Beast is a highly entertaining slots that comes with an interesting game mechanic (Golden Bet Feature) that really gets the juices flowing.
If you’re after the big wins in this slots make sure the Golden Bet feature is active especially if you succeed in triggering the free spins, oh and do keep an eye on those scatters cause 5 of them pays a whopping 5,000 coins.
I’d say the game is a great addition to Yggdrasil’s game library and definitely worth a few spins. A slots that is just as good and comes highly recommended is Vikings Go Wild (https://casinowhizz.com/slots/vikings-go-wild-slot/).
