Into the Forest
In terms of the paytable, you have a low to medium variance game that focuses primarily on free games; this certainly seems to be the brand’s go-to characteristic. To access the extra spins you’ll need three or more of the forest symbol, easily identified by the twinkling landscape of the forest.
You’ll be given 10 rounds, a reasonable if not overwhelming selection for you to savour, as well as the expanding fairy wild leading to wins multiplied by x3. What we really need to point out here is that the free games start immediately; other than the tiles becoming animated, there’s no clear signifier that the bonus has begun. We find this to be quite a generous feature in all, even though it’s very mundane in its delivery and substance. In truth we’d have preferred a more interactive mini level, but we appreciate that not all gamers are that way inclined.
Moving onto the fairy symbol, it’s a tile that holds importance outside of the free games, as it’s a wild that can up the payouts considerably. It can only fly onto the second, third and fourth reels, so it’s a slight rarity, however when it appears it can expand across the whole column. When this happens you’ll get a chunky win that’ll gift you a lovely dose of much needed cash.
Do bear in mind though that the expansion of the icon won’t occur unless the symbols have formed a winning combination. You’ll know when this happens, so there won’t be any guess work on your part. So just sit back and watch as those adorable pixies do their magic and make Fairies Forest a magical experience.
Similar Enchanted Slots
Those of you that hold a special place in your hearts for fairy tale themes are in for a treat, as WMS has a slot machine named Enchanted Fairy. This slot maintains a conventional format of 5 reels and 20 winlines, making it adaptable for most players, advanced or novice. In terms of aesthetic, we’d say that NextGen have won this round, as their matrix is more engaging, but that isn’t to say that WMS’s title isn’t beautiful.
Just like in Fairies Forest, you have a super friendly pay-in: in Fairies Forest it’s 0.25 and in Enchanted Fairy you have 0.20 credits. As you can see, there’s not much in it. As for the maximum you can bet, WMS have made their game more accessible for high rollers, topping out at 100, but we’d say that there’s no real need for such a high stake option.
Magic Is Real
When it comes to Fairies Forest, magic truly is alive and well. No, this isn’t some extraordinary slot machine that piles on the features, but its layout, aesthetic and humble paytable create a fantastic world in which to play. Furthermore, we like that there’s a vintage touch to the matrix, connecting us to the tales that have been around for years.
Although this is a great slot machine, we appreciate that some gamers will tire of the lack of depth here, for the variance is limited to free games and expanding wilds. Therefore, we’d say that while a pleasure to play, the experience won’t be a long lasting one. It’s a shame, but that’s simply how the title has been made.
