Where to play?
There are games that grab your attention from the very first spin while others fizzle away in obscurity. NetEnt’s Fairytale Legends: Red Hiding Hood looks like a very promising slot but it’s one for the ladies. It features 5 reels, 20 paylines, offers a top jackpot cash prize of 400x your stake and laced with 7 bonus rounds of which 3 are triggered randomly during the base game.
The theme of the slots is based on little Red Riding Hood, she encounters all manner of fairies in the forest and then there’s the Big Bad Wolf that’s hot on her heels. The theoretical return to the player (RTP) percentage is 96.33%. What it tells me is that it pays out often but wins tend to be quite small. Smart play is required since the bigger wins occur on every 12 to 15 spins. It’s not a given though but based purely on my own playing experience.
Paying icons that appear on the reels are Red Riding Hood, card icons from 10 to Ace, a book, key, rose and the fairy tale logo. During the main game there’s a Sticky Win Re-Spins mode that offers re-spins replete with sticky wilds. The free spins offers you up to 20 free spins and a potential win of 200x your stake. Magic inhabitants will guide you as you work your way through the various bonus modes. The slots loads fast on mobile phones and desktops. To get a feel for its payouts and game mechanics play it in the free mode first.
The ‘Bet Level’ is 1 to 10 and the coin range from 0.01 to 1.00. Bets can be made from a mere £0.20 up to £200 per spin. The only thing that concerns me is that the top paying symbol (Fairy Tale Legends logo) pays 400x your stake for 5 at the highest coin denomination. This bit of info tells me that it is a low to medium variance slots. An Auto Play button spins the reels automatically for you up to 1,000 times. Make sure that the coin range you’ve selected is in line with your budget.
Base Game Bonus Modes
During the main game you’ll encounter 3 bonus modes that can be triggered randomly. The first one is the Fairy Magic Spin feature. A cluster of 5 to 9 medium win symbols appear overlay for one spin, offering you a reasonable shot to gain a winning combination.
When you experience a non-winning spin during the base game the Fairy Surprise feature is activated. The other symbols are turned in the selected symbol until a payout occurs. The Fairy Wild Spin feature is the last one of the lot. It’s triggered the moment 3 or 4 wilds pitch on the 3 middle reels awarding you a Sticky Wild Re-Spin. What I like about this feature is that it can be re-triggered during the Free Spins and main game. When 2 or more wilds appear they become sticky wilds which gives you a Sticky Wild Re-Spin. As long as the wilds keep on popping up you’ll keep on getting sticky wilds with re-spins.
The Treasure Chest symbol is the scatter icon, it triggers the bonus modes when it appears on reels 1, 3 and 5. In order to determine which feature you’re going to play you must pick one feature. The Coin Win feature is one of them, pick this one and you’ll win 15x your line bet.
Beware Wolf Bonus
Here you must spin the ‘whirligig’ and find grandma’s house in the dense forest, if you succeed you’ll win a cash prize. This is quite an interesting feature since there are 5 different locations (Coin Win, Double, Arrow, Jackpot Coin Win and Collect) with multiplier wins up to 20x. All multiplier wins are doubled when you land on the ‘Double’ location. Land on the ‘Arrow’ location you’ll follow the arrow on your next move. If you land on the ‘Jackpot Coin Win’ location you’ll win 100x times your stake but the feature ends. Land on the ‘Double’ and you’ll walk away with a cool win of 200x your line bet.
Last of the bonus modes is the free spins feature where you can win 20 of them. Whilst the free spins is active additional free spins can be won (2) if one bonus symbol hits the reels. When an additional 2 bonus symbols appear you’ll win another 4 free spins. Hit 3 of them and you’ll win an extra 10 free spins making it a total of 20 free spins. However, additional payouts ensure if the Sticky Wild Re-Spins is triggered during the free spins.
NetEnt’s Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood is no slouch when it comes to bonus modes since there are 7 of them! The feature that’s responsible for the biggest wins during the main game is the Sticky Wild Re-Spins. During the bonus modes it is the Fairy Wild Spin feature since wins are boosted by 4 wilds. It’s a medium variance slots that will keep you busy until the wee hours of the morning. If you’re into fairies then this might just be your game. Personally I won’t play it again since it’s not my cup of tea.
