Where to play?
Microgaming’s Goldwyn’s Fairies medium variance video slot comes with 20 paylines, 5 reels and pays out a top non-progressive jackpot of 500 coins. The smallest wager per spin starts with a mere 10 pence min bet up to a max bet of €/£250. Come to think of it this is really good. The game can be played on mobile phones and PCs for free or for real cash at out top microgaming casinos.
In terms of bonus modes the slots has a couple. It features an enchanting Re-spins mode where wilds are transformed into Returning Wilds. As long as the Re-spins wilds keep on pitching re-spins will be awarded. Central to the game is its Free Spins feature that awards 10 free spins along with Returning Wilds which I’ll discuss in more detail in a bit.
Paying symbols that appear on the reels are Four Fairies, each fairy represents a Season: Summer, Winter, Spring and Autumn, a classic wild and 4 magnificent gems. For what it’s worth Microgaming collaborated with ‘Just For The Win Game Development’ to bring you this slots.
I must admit so far it looks pretty neat but I can’t help but notice that it leans more towards your female audience. To be more precise if it pays well it will appeal to every one. The game offers an average return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.6% or a house edge (HE) of 3.4%. Bonus hunters might want to keep this in mind.
The visual side of the slots sports cracking visual animations while the setting of the game plays off in a magical forest. The audio could best be described as soothing. The symbol that offers the biggest win at the maximum stake is the ‘Classical Wild’, 5 of them pays 25x your stake.
There’s a bunch of customization options built into the game that makes playing it more convenient. If the graphics settings are a tad sharp for mobile players they can be reduced so that the game doesn’t lag or ‘freeze’.
An Auto Play feature is handy especially if you’re busy with other stuff-it spins the reels automatically for you up to 1,000 times. There’s a Max Bet button for high rollers and different coin bet options. To get an overview of the game’s payouts click on the ‘i’ (Paytable). It tells you which icons offer the biggest cash prizes and how to trigger the free spins.
There are 2 wilds; the first one is the Re-spin wild and the second is the Free Spin wild. The wild replaces the other symbols on the reels except the Free Spins symbols. Goldwyn’s Fairies has 3 bonus modes:
Re-Spin And Returning Wild
The moment you get 1 Re-spin on the 3rd reel the Re-Spin feature is triggered where a classic wild is transformed into Returning Wild. What I like about the feature you’ll keep on getting re-spins until the Re-spin symbol stops pitching.
This is the business end of the slots, it’s initiated when the ‘Free Spins’ symbol lands on reels 1, 3 and 5 (all in one go)-10 free spins are awarded. However, it comes with a rather interesting snippet, of the 10 free spins, 9 use the ‘Returning Wild‘ feature while 1 is the last free spin.
The Return Wild feature comes into play during the Free Spins and Re-spins. It might sound a tad confusing. What’s happening here is that the space where the Free Spin wild or Re-spin wild pitches will be marked with a Returning Wild until there are no more free spins left.
Returning wilds are turned into classic wilds on the final free spin or Re-spin. The buck doesn’t stop here though. In the event a Free Spins wild or Re-spin lands on a Return Wild an extra Returning Wild will pop up on another set of reels.
With an enchanting theme Microgaming’s Goldwyn’s Fairies is an entertaining slots that pays a top jackpot of around 630x your stake. If you can get a payout on the last Re-spin or Free Spin by landing an extra wild on a Returning Wild, you’ll receive a big payout.
As I said before the slots comes across as confusing, I can understand why the developer tried to spice things up with a slew of bonus modes. Then again once you hit the spin button the game becomes as easy as pie. Would we recommend the game? Absolutely since it has enough in it to keep the bankroll ticking over but caution is advised because it’s of medium variance.
