Ten paylines make up this simple Net Ent game, perfect for both beginners and experienced players. The fairy tale theme is center stage with symbols like birds, Hansel, Gretel and treasure chests to add to the whimsical feel of this slot.
The actual Fairy Tale symbol is the most valuable, giving you a serious win (40 times your bet) should you find yourself in possession of a few of these sprinkled across the screen. As if that isn’t enough, you’ve still got stacked wilds and six different bonus features to keep your interest and keep your wallet well stocked.
Wild symbols are great, but stacked wilds are even better. They show up on the second and fourth reels in regular games and can also appear on the first and fifth during the Stacked Wilds Re-Spin features (mentioned below). Players appreciate that increased opportunities for wins that stacked wilds create.
3 Random Features
At any random moment in the base game, one of the 3 Random Features can be activated.
- Fairy Wonder Spin – you get a cluster of Game Logos overlaying any three reels. You receive anywhere from 5 to 9 of the logo symbols, which will act as an overlay on the reels for one spin.
- The Fairy Surprise Random Feature – this feature will only be activated after a no-win spin. One symbol will be randomly selected with the other symbols turning into the chosen symbol until you get a win.
- Fairy Wild Spin – receive two full stacks of wilds on any reel apart from the third one, which will award a Stacked Wild Re-Spin.
Randomly Triggered Features
For the most part, you know what to expect from free slots game Hansel & Gretel. But the random features often throw players the first time they occur. Fairy Wonder Spin creates a cluster of game logo symbols across reel one, leading to some substantial wins.
The Fairy Surprise can happen on spins that don’t result in a win. Here one symbol is selected and other symbols are transformed to match until you get a win. Finally, the Fairy Wild Spin feature creates two stacks of wilds to show up on all of the reels but 3. You then get to re-spin, adding to your opportunities to win.
It’s hard to believe but the random features aren’t the only option for bonus wins. If you get the treasure chests on the first, third, and fifth reel, you’ll be able to play one of the three bonus features.
The Candy House feature allows you to pick three items, each with a multiplier attached. You can pick the average of the three or just one and win with a spin. The Coin Win is simple, giving you 15 times your bet. The Free Spin feature awards you 10 free spins. Bonus symbols that show up can add to your free spin count.

Conclusion – A Truly Rewarding Experience
Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel is a great addition to the NetEnt fairytale series of slot machines. It bears some resemblance to Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood in the random features, the logo symbol and the general feel of the game. It also features the same musical theme.
However, this game has one considerable advantage – you’ll get a payout for three symbols in a row as long as they appear on one of the 10 paylines. This means that the three or more symbols don’t need to start from the leftmost reel. Now, hurry up and start playing and winning prizes before NetEnt realise they’ve increased
