Bright and Beautiful
The layout of the reels is a little different to the norm, this is because there are 6 reels instead of the usual 5. Reels 1, 2 and 3 are three symbols high and reels 4, 5 and 6 are five symbols high. Each of the reels is green in colour and resembles green grass. Surround the reels is a golden frame and this separates the symbols from the stunning design behind – one full of nature’s finest flowers and plants and a green pond.
The four progressive jackpots sit to the top left and grow in value from clubs, diamonds, spades and hearts. Use the control panel to select your bet – there are 5 pre-set coin value buttons that you can use; 50 coins, 100 coins, 250 coins, 500 coins and 1,000 coins. You can expect to find card values of 10, J, Q, K and A on the reels plus grasshopper, frog, mole, Thumbelina, mouse, bird and a Peter Pan looking fairy.
The Coin Rewards
Big cash comes from the Thumbelina symbol – 6 of a kind on your payline will trigger the 5,000 coin maximum payout. High value symbols are the bird with 3,000 coins, mole with 2,500 coins and the mouse with 2,000 coins. Medium value symbols are the frog and grasshopper – both awarding 1,600 coins for 6 of a kind and the card values of K and A – both award 1,200 coins. Low value symbols are the 10, J and Q card values along with the Peter Pan looking fairy – all awarding 1,000 coins. However, bigger coin values can be triggered via the progressive jackpots feature.
Fairly Good Features
As usual, you will find wild symbols that can replace other symbols (bar scatter) to create wins – the wild of this slot game is Thumbelina. Thumbelina appears on reels 2 and 5 and expands to its left and right neighbouring positions to create bigger winning potential. Scatter symbols are the Peter Pan fairy – three or on reels 4, 5 and 6 will award 10 free spins.
The gamble feature is a simple feature that allows any base game win to be doubled on the turn of a card – red or black, that’s the decision that stands between you winning more or losing the lot. Progressive jackpots are awarded randomly and you are required to match three of the same suit of card to win that corresponding progressive jackpot.
Crystal Forest is an enchanting slot machine from WMS that allows you to wander into a fairy tale forest full of magical creatures and big bonus features. The 5 reel, 25 payline slot features cascading reels, free spins and a top paying prize of 3,750 in cash – stakes start at just 0.25 and can be increased to 125.00 a spin. Land the fantasy characters onto the reels to trigger great cash rewards in the form of regular base game wins.
Fair play, we absolutely love the theme and design of the Thumbelina’s Dream video slot – but the base game wins are very small indeed. Maximum bets of 1,000 coins will only net you a max of 5,000 coins – hardly life-changing, but there is the potential to scoop 1 of 4 progressive jackpots. Free spins don’t always come around in this medium to high variance slot, but thanks to the wilds on the reels, these will add more excitement in every fastspin.
Be wary of the gamble feature as it doesn’t clearly show you how to collect your winnings and we nearly gambled the lot by pressing various buttons to cash-out our winnings. Once you have decided on red or black and have won, you need to press the bet value button that you play with to head back to the base game with your gamble wins.
