About Pixies of the Forest
Pixies of the Forest is a low variance IGT slot that, for a reason we can’t quite fathom, has become incredibly popular.
The slot was designed by one of IGT’s most successful developers, High5Games.
Featuring a dreamy fairytale theme and an avalanche feature called Tumbling Reels, plenty is going on at first sight.
Pixies of the Forest was quite the hit when it first hit the floors in land-based casinos in the United Kingdom and the United States.
Since then, it has transitioned to top-rated licensed online casinos, where it still has a loyal following.
CasinoWizard isn’t all that impressed.
Please allow us to explain why.
Pixies of the Forest RTP
The online version of Pixies of the Forest has a theoretical return to player of 93.0%.
Now, we would be OK with that if we were playing this slot in The Cosmopolitan or Caesar’s Palace on the Vegas Strip whilst enjoying an ice-cold Pina Colada.
For an online slot, 93% is abysmal.
While we love online slots, fools, we are not.
Gameplay and features
To add insult to injury, the gameplay is not all that exciting, either.
The game’s main draw is the Tumbling Reels feature, which may have been cool 10 years ago but is not enough to bring the excitement nowadays.
Winning symbols slowly disappear to make way for new combinations, leading to seemingly endless chain reactions of wins.
You also get 99 lines for 33 coins, but let’s be honest: is that really something special?
Due to the low volatility of this slot, payouts for winning combinations are poor. After a while, you get the distinct feeling you don’t care anymore.
Three scatters on a payline trigger the free spins bonus, awarding 5 to 11 free spins.
The betting amount starts from 33 cents up to a whopping $/€660 per spin.
Wilds substitute all symbols except the bonus scatters.
What is the maximum win on the Pixies of the Forest slot?
Your winnings are capped at $/€250,000.
Given the low volatility of this slot, your chances of reaching that quarter of a million are about as big as seeing a real fairy.
When you start seeing big win animations for wins of only 10 times the bet, chances are the real big wins are never going to come.
CasinoWizard’s verdict: 2 out of 5 stars
Despite its popularity, CasinoWizard fails to see the attraction of this slot.
The Return to Player is below par, the gameplay is bland, and the theme is..just there.
