About Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel
Hansel & Gretel is part of the Fairytale Legends series of slots by NetEnt, released in 2017, and it features beautiful graphics and many bonus features that bring wins and enhance gameplay.
You’ll get to accompany Hansel and Gretel as they try to find their way back home through the dark and eerie forest.
Introduction, including RTP and variance
The theoretical payout (RTP) is 96.71%, which is good enough, and the variance is medium. This is easy to play a slot game that will not pay out too often but will pay well enough to make the balance just right.
Bigger wins are only possible with some of the bonus features, so Hansel & Gretel is a bit deficient in issuing mega wins.
Gameplay and Pay Table
There are three main symbols: the Fairytale Legends Logo as by far the best-paying symbol, Hansel and Gretel. There are also four Candy symbols of different colours in this 10-payline game.
Hansel & Gretel’s gameplay has a delicate balance between winless spins and the quality of wins, and the game is heavily influenced by a fantastic number of various bonus features.
There’s always some bonus feature to look forward to or some chunky wins that will appear out of nowhere.
Stacked Wilds can appear on reels 2 and 4 in the base game, and whenever a Stacked Wild covers an entire reel, a Stacked Wild Re-Spin is awarded. This is a rather common sight in Hansel & Gretel, and if the Stacked Wild appears on reel 2, a nice win is almost guaranteed.
Hansel & Gretel bonus Features
There are three random features in the base game. A Fairy Wonder Spin will bring a cluster of 5 to 9 Logo symbols as an overlay on the reels.
The Fairy Surprise is activated randomly on no-win spins. A symbol will be randomly chosen from those on the reels, and other symbols will be turned into this symbol until a win is awarded.
In the Fairy Wild Spin feature, two full stacks of Wilds can randomly appear on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 during the spin. After the reels stop and wins are paid out, a Stacked Wild Re-Spin is awarded.
If you land three Chest Scatter symbols, you’ll trigger the bonus game. You’ll either get a coin win or one of the two bonus features, Candy House Bonus or Free Spins. Coin win will always be 15x your bet size, and Free Spins will award 10 free spins.
In the Candy House Bonus, you’ll get to pick 3 out of 15 available items, and each will be a multiplier value.
CasinoWizard’s verdict: 3 out of 5 stars
Hansel & Gretel is a stunning title and a worthy addition to the Fairytale Legends series. It has more than enough bonus features, especially those that are triggered randomly, and this is indeed a fairytale unfolding on your reels. Another great title by NetEnt.
Perhaps the game doesn’t offer huge wins to look forward to, but this is still a fun and rewarding experience that’s easy to play.
