Often starting with “Once upon a time…” and ending with “…..and they lived happily ever after,” a fairy tale is a fictional story that interests many people worldwide. No matter where you are from or what religion you follow. Fairy tales are loved by many worldwide. Not just the ones under a certain age. The Hansel and Gretel fairytale is one of these popular stories told a billion times.
What is a fairytale?
A fairy tale is a fictional story featuring folkloric characters such as fairies, witches, goblins, elves, trolls, giants, and talking animals. Fairytales often take you into a world that doesn’t really exist. Children, as well as grown-ups, will be enchanted by these stories. Fairytales tell you about the good and the bad in the world.
We tend to love “fairy tale endings” and “fairy tale romances”. That probably why NetEnt picked this genre in literature for their third video slot trilogy.
NetEnt slot trilogies
The first trilogy left the stage in December 2016, known as the Wonders slots. This series of jackpot slots never made it to the mobile casinos, though, but in the same year the NetEnt Rocks Trilogy did find its way to the mobile NetEnt Casinos involving Guns N’ Roses Touch®, Jimi Hendrix Touch®, and Motorhead Touch®.
In October 2016, the first leg of an enchanting series of mobile slots was launched. The game brought Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf in the spotlights. Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood Touch® involves great animations and slot features. A true spectacle for those who like to play mobile video slots and enjoy fairy tales.
The next chapter of NetEnt’s big book of fairytales, Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel Touch®, was released in April 2017 bringing another magical mobile slot to the NetEnt Casinos with this time Hansel and Gretel, the stepmother, and the witch as the main characters.
Did Hansel and Gretel live happily ever after?
Hansel and Gretel is a very well-known tale about two children abandoned by their father and stepmother. They were left in the middle of the wood, twice!
The first time, Hansel was so smart to collect some pebbles and leave a trail back home. But the second day all he had, was a piece of bread, tragically eaten by the birds. They eventually found the way home and yes, they lived happily ever after. But the witch almost got in their way….
Lost in the woods, the two children kept walking in the hope to find their way back anyway. Unable to find a point of recognition, they ended up in front of a house made of gingerbread and candy. The old friendly owner of the place offered them a nice meal and a warm soft bed. Little did they know that she wasn’t what they expected her to be after that.
What seemed to be a good place to hide, turned to be a dangerous place. Hansel appeared to be the perfect ingredient for one of the witch’s recipes. The fatter, the better! Therefore, the witch ordered Gretel to make her brother fat by feeding him extraordinary amounts of food.
Hansel, the smart ass, didn’t let this happen and kept on hiding his food in holes in the ground. Without any patience, the witch decided it was time for Hansel to become cooked anyway. She asked Gretel to check the oven.
Gretel didn’t know how, ahum, so the witch showed her. Gretel took the opportunity to shove the old mean witch into the oven. Hansel and Gretel eventually found their way back home…and they lived happily ever after.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel Touch®
Inspired by the above fairy tale, it was in April 2017 that NetEnt brought another classic fairytale back to life. This mobile slot is the second part of the Fairytale Legends Trilogy.
You don’t have to like fairytales to enjoy Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel Touch®. Simply because this mobile slot is designed to bring great animations, and even better slot features.
Play Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel Touch® and enjoy the wondrous journey of the two children. Experience their adventure in a deep dark forest which hides a candy house and a mean witch.
The original characters are a great addition to this mobile slot experience. So are the many innovative slot features available. Meanwhile, this mobile slot game brings a relaxing atmosphere. The fairytale-themed background sounds add to an enchanting experience on the reels.
With a minimum bet of 0.10 and a maximum bet of 200.00, Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel Touch® is aiming for a wide range of players, no matter if they are into fairytales or not. This mobile NetEnt slot will bring the best of the best with its original characters, as well as slot features including Stacked Wild Re-Spins, three Random Features, and three Bonus features including a Coin Win, Free Spins, and the exciting Candy House Bonus feature.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel Touch® features
Fairytales bring magic and enchantments, elements not forgotten during the development of both the Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel™ video slot, and Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel Touch®. You also won’t miss out on the good characters and neither on the bad characters while the Candy House has been originally implemented in one of the bonus features.
The hungry birds eating the breadcrumbs are available on the Stacked Wild symbols. They are there to entertain you during the Main game.
The Stacked Wild symbols can appear on reels 2 and 4 and will activated a Stacked Wild Re-spin when it appears entirely on the reel. This re-spin will result in more Stacked Wilds landing on reels 1 and/or 5.
Reunited with NetEnt’s very own fairy
Play Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood Touch® to meet NetEnt’s luminous fairy who became a symbol of the Fairytale Legends Trilogy. While the Hansel and Gretel fairytale doesn’t involve a fairy, NetEnt added its very own fairy anyway.
Someone has to be responsible for the activation of the three Random slot feature available in all Fairytale Legends games. Just as this was the case in Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood Touch®, the fairy will again appear randomly on the reels during the main game activating either a Fairy Wonder Spin, Fairy Surprise, or Fairy Wild Spin.
Treasure Chest feature
By adding the Treasure Chest feature, NetEnt has been able to add three more bonus features. Three chests on the reels allow you to pick one of them resulting in either a coin win, Free Spins or the Candy House Bonus.
While all three Bonus features are equally attractive, the Candy House Bonus is probably most wanted because of its innovative character. You’ll participate in this bonus feature by picking three candies. Each of them will show a Multiplier that can go up to x120.
Multipliers won’t be revealed until only one candy left, which means you can continue to pick the last candy or you end the bonus by taking the deal which will be an average of the three Multipliers hidden behind the three candies.
Never before have I seen the deal or no deal situation involved in an online slot feature which totally makes the Candy House Bonus. Keep in mind the remainder slot features, as well as the original characters and animations, and I’m sure you feel like trying out Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel Touch® at one of the mobile casinos.
