Where to play?
If you enjoy playing slots with mythical fairies living in enchanted forests Novomatic’s latest slot Fairy Queen is a good start. As the name of the video slots implies the Queen is a beauty indeed. Legend has it that the Fairy Queen can give you riches befitting a king or she can set your bankroll on fire right from the very first spin. That’s my take on the game at least.
The slots grabbed my attention from the get go since I’m a fan of all things fantasy. Paying symbols that tip toe across the reels are pixies, gnomes, dragons, flowers and the green man. Fairy Queen is a skillfully crafted slots that features charming characters and in-your-face graphics. It’s good to see that the developers incorporated a ‘bank vault’ of paying icons. I’m specifically referring to the scatters, expanding wilds and free spins.
The video slots sports 10 paylines, 5 reels and a total jackpot win of 36,000 coins. With a house edge of 4.9% or a return percentage to the player (RTP) of 95.6%, Fairy Queen is pretty volatile. It’s one of those games that offers a bunch of dry spins but when it pays out you’ll punch the air with jubilation.
To get you on your way the coin range is 0.04 up to 4.00. If you’re playing on a small budget you can spin the reels at a minimum bet of £$0.4 up to £$40 per spin.
This game comes in like a lion and certainly roars like one. It’s the kind of game that can chew up your bankroll pretty fast or it can put a smile on your face. One feature in particular that’s worth mentioning is the free spins.
Normally the free spins bonus mode is difficult to trigger, I was fortunate enough to trigger it twice in under 110 spins. I noted that even though the slots pays out well during the free spins it just clams up after 150 spins. Based on my playing experience I’d say it’s eager to part ways with its treasures but becomes stingy after a while. So, my advice to you, if you managed a big win walk away.
Wilds: The wild icon is the wise and gorgeous Fairy Queen. When she appears in a winning combination during the base game she’ll save your hide. At times she might even appear stacked.
Gamble Feature: Not one of favourite features because your chances of doubling your cash is 50/50. If you’re up for a little challenge all you need to do is to guess the right colour of a card.
Free Spins: The scatter icon is the ‘portal of light’. Mind you this is one icon that will keep your eyes glued to the reels. When three or more of them show up on the reels they trigger the free spins. The only downside is that you’ll receive 10 free spins and not the usual 20. The upshot to this is that you can win a substantial amount of cash during the free spins. On every spin a random icon is selected. Turning 2 or 3 reels into stacked wilds.
Despite its size Fairy Queen is a powerful little Novomatic slots. I was lucky enough to trigger the free spins feature and really warmed to the game. Then again if you fail to trigger the free spins you might end up banging your keyboard. This one’s definitely for the medium and high roller players with steady bankrolls.
