Play the New Fairytale Legends – Hansel & Gretel Slot from Netent Early!

Fairytale Legends – Hansel and Gretel Slot is a brand new title from NetEnt scheduled for release on the 24th April 2017, a few select casinos such as Thrills Casino already have this slot live and playable at their casino along with both their sister sites Kaboo Casino and Super Lenny Casino and some pre-release free spins promotions can also be found at Guts Casino too.

The Hansel and Gretel slot is the second in the Fairytale Legends series, with Red Reding Hood being the first, and whilst the general design and sounds follow the same theme there is a wealth of different bonuses and mini-features that make them both stand out.

Hansel and Gretel uses a regular 5×3 reel layout and comes with just 10 fixed paylines, these do however pay in both direction and for even appearing in the middle of the paylines giving plenty of chances of 3 of a kind wins along with some higher paying 5 of a kind wins possible from the premium symbols too.

The base game is literally packed with features and bonuses that include the Fairy Bonuses which can have 3 different outcomes, Stacked Wild Re-Spins, and of course, the main bonus round which again has 3 different random bonuses on offer (Cash Prize, Free Spins, Picking Round).

Overall Thoughts

The Hansel and Gretel Slot from NetEnt is a highly polished release, the graphics, and slot design are truly impressive, with nice transitions in and out of the bonus rounds and some amazing visuals for the bonuses.

The main negative though is that the pays from this slot seem a little lackluster, whilst it is great fun to play, and there is plenty of excitement when the special modes activate, this doesn’t seem to translate too well into the paytable, with a maximum of 120x stake on offer during the Candy House picking round.

Everything else though is very impressive, so if you are a fan of NetEnt slots and in particular ones with plenty of random bonus features then this might be worth a play.
