If there was ever a slot game to take its players on a magical fantasy adventure, then Goldwyn’s Fairies is the one. Brought to you by Microgaming, this one really takes you to a world of enchantment while you play. Of course, being a slot from this developer, it contains very impressive graphics and gameplay on the whole. Meanwhile, you’ll get to witness some beautiful fairies up close. And, as everyone probably knows by now, Microgaming don’t skimp on special features. It’s what makes them one of the best developers around today. But, you don’t need to be a fan of the fantasy genre in order to enjoy this game. After all, it provides something for everybody. And one thing that you can always be sure of, is that you’ll find entertainment from start to finish.
Reels of Enchantment
The design of the game provides players with a total of five reels and three rows. Therefore, you will be looking at something that appears fairly familiar. It is upon these reels that you will find the game’s range of different symbols. The first of them come in the form of different gemstones. There are four in total, each a different shape and colour. These make up the game’s lowest paying symbols. And of course, what would a game such as this be without icons of fairies upon its reels? In total, there are four of the symbols. The red-haired fairy with a sunflower on its head. The fairy with green hair and a daisy tucked by her ear. The blue fairy, who looks very much like the queen of ice. And finally, the blonde-haired addition. And all of these icons are seen against a background of greenery. This obviously represents the undergrowth and depths of the forest.
Alongside this design and the game’s icons, players have the chance to place bet on a total of 20 win lines. These lines have all been set in place, so you cannot change them in any way. Therefore, bets are always in play across 20 lines. However, you do have the chance to change around the wager that you bring into play. The minimum coin size stands at £0.01, meaning that the minimum bet amount is £0.20 per spin. This can increase up to a maximum level of £250 per spin. There’s also the inclusion of an ‘Autoplay’ feature for you to make use of. With this, you can set the reels off spinning several consecutive times at the same wager level.
Fairy Light Special Additions
Fairies are known for their magical capabilities, and they’ll be illuminating the forest for you as you wander around. Fortunately, they will also bring some special features to life as well, with the game first of all providing a wild icon. This is able to stand in for all other symbols on the reels in order to form a winning combination. The only exception to this rule being the scatter icon. However, this is not the only wild icon that the game contains. Because as well as the classic wild, there are two more to make use of!
There’s the free spins wild and the re-spin wild, both of which show up in their respective game modes. However, their function is exactly the same as the basic wild addition. Simply put, they give you plenty more opportunities to form wins.
The free spins round of the game comes into play whenever the relevant icon shows up on reels one, three and five. This icon is a scatter addition, so it will trigger the feature wherever it appears on these reels. You will be the recipient of nine free spins, with a final 10th one given without the free spins wild in play. But what’s the difference between this one and the classic wild? Well, the free spins wild is known as a returning wild. This means that if one appears on a free spins, it will return for the very next free spin to benefit from. You do not have the chance of re-triggering the free spins round though.
Finally, there’s the inclusion of the re-spin feature. This triggers with the appearance of the gold fairy. She will provide you with up to 14 re-spins of the reels, with the returning wild feature once again being active during such. If you manage to fill the screen with the returning wild icons, you’ll receive massive pay outs!
The Final Word
Goldwyn’s Fairies is a great new addition to slot sites from Microgaming. And even though its special feature inclusions aren’t specifically anything grandiose, they fit the game very well. Add the stellar graphics and gameplay to this and you’ve got yourself an entertaining and pleasing slot to play.
