Although Mirror Mirror is a film from 2012, this NetEnt slot has nothing in common with the film except that both the film and the Mirror Mirror™ slot are based on the fairy tale Snow White collected by the Brothers Grimm.
Thanks to the Mirror Mirror™ slot, you can now finish a wonderful slot journey through the thrilling third part of the enchanting Fairytale Legends Trilogy. Just as the two previous Fairytale Legends slots Red Riding Hood™ and Hansel and Gretel™, the Mirror Mirror™ slot is packed with magical video slot features.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs summary
Who doesn’t know the fairy tale that revolves around the magic mirror, the poisoned apple, the glass coffin, the evil queen, the fairest of them all, and the seven dwarfs? I believe that the Brothers Grimm played an important role in anyone’s childhood, even if you think it was Walt Disney. Of course, in many Disney films, these fairy tales have been told in a way only Walt Disney can, but most of them came to life thanks to the Brothers Grimm who together collected and published the fairytales during the 19th century.
“Mirror, mirror, on the wall – who is the fairest one of all?”
Snow White, a fairy tale published for the first time in 1812 as part of the collection Grimms’ Fairy Tales, is one of the most popular fairy tales around. The story is all about the evil queen and an innocent girl famous for her skin white as snow, lips red as blood, and hair black as ebony. She was called Snow White by her beloved mother. After her mother died, Snow White’s father, the king, takes a new wife. This is how the wicked stepmother, and her magic mirror, become part of Snow White’s life.
Of course, you wish your father all the happiness in the world, but how come he did not see his new wife being so evil? How could he not know he married evil herself? Every morning again, the gold digger asks her magic mirror: “Magic mirror in my hand, who is the fairest in the land?” A bit weird don’t you think? Yet, the mirror for a long time replies: “My queen, you are the fairest in the land,” always being the most honest mirror around. All good, until that one dreadful day, when the mirror’s honesty is driving the queen mad after the mirror tells her that it isn’t her who’s the fairest of them all, but Snow White who by then became a beautiful young woman.
Jealousy turns the queen against Snow White, whom the queen grows to hate increasingly with time. Extreme jealousy eventually results in the queen ordering a huntsman to take Snow White into the deepest woods to be killed and never return back. To proof that the huntsman does what he was asked for, the evilness herself demands that he returns with Snow White’s lungs and liver. The huntsman does what was ordered and he takes Snow White into the deepest of the forest where he finds himself unable to kill her. Snow White then finds out about the queen’s plan and begs him to spare her life and promises him she will run away to never come back again. The huntsman reluctantly agrees and Snow White becomes a free girl. In order to make the queen believe he killed Snow White anyway, he hands over the heart of a wild animal instead.
Fact #1: In early versions of the tale, like a version from 1812, Snow White was killed by her real mother. It’s the Grimm brothers that changed the story in the 1819 version in which Snow White is killed by her stepmother.
Spared by the pitiful huntsman, Snow White will eventually find refuge in the welcoming cottage of the seven friendly dwarfs Doc, Sneezy, Grumpy, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, and Dopey. The seven dwarf miners don’t hesitate and make Snow White part of their household. However, the mirror keeps on telling the truth and with Snow White still alive, the jealous Queen soon discovers the Huntsman’s treason.
While the dwarfs are at their diamond mine, the Queen herself arrives at the cottage, disguised as an old woman. She manages to persuade Snow White to have a bite from a poisoned apple. Meanwhile, the forest animals warn the dwarfs that straight away rush home to chase the witch away. Too late to save Snow White from the poisoned apple, they place their beloved new friend in a glass coffin where they mourn for her. No worries, though, as Prince charming will find a way into this fairy tale to awaken Snow White from the deathlike spell with “love’s first kiss”. And they all lived happily ever after!
Fact #2: The seven dwarfs were first given individual names in the 1912 Broadway play Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and then given different names in Walt Disney’s 1937 film.
NetEnt’s book of fairytales: part 3
Relating to the Snow White fairy tale, the Mirror Mirror™ slot revolves around Snow White and her evil stepmother. Obviously, both of them can be found on the reels in this enchanting NetEnt slot. Snow White can also be found next to the reels where she will show happiness when a win appears and stays naive when the stepmother’s mirror appears on the reels.
NetEnt’s very own fairy, who has been part of the game ever since the first Fairytale Legends™ slot came out in October 2016, returns on the reels as well being responsible for all of the Random features available in this third Fairytale Legends™ slot game including the Fairy Magic Spin, the Fairy Surprise, and the Fairy Mirror Feature.
We all know who is missing, right? No worries, they’ll find a way into the game, but it might take a while before they make their first appearance. However, I don’t think you’ll meet them all. So far I noticed two of them missing which turns this fairy tale-themed slot into Snow White and the five dwarfs. Ah well, everything is possible in video slot land and two dwarfs missing is no big deal really.
With a minimum bet of 0.10, the Fairytale Legends: Mirror Mirror™ slot is offering the same minimum bet as Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel™. However, the Mirror Mirror™ slot is offering the lowest maximum bet of all three Fairytale Legends slots with 100.00, lower than the average. I’m sure you’ll find a bet suitable for your way of playing with the help of the 10 different bet levels and the 7 coin values available.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel™ slot features
The third and last part of the Fairytale Legends Trilogy is bringing another fairytale back to life on the reels with Snow White, the Queen, the magic mirror, the fairy, and five of the hard-working dwarfs being responsible for the fun on the reels. But of course, no Fairytale Legends slot would be complete without a magical mix of slot features. And a great mix of slot features is available indeed with Mirror Re-Spins, the Fairy Magic Spin Feature, the Fairy Surpise Feature, the Fairy Mirror Feature, a Free Spins Feature, Coin Wins, and the Mining Bonus Feature.
Yet again, NetEnt’s fairy is responsible for the Random features which will be activated completely randomly during the main game after which the fairy brings you either a Fairy Magic Spin, a Fairy Surprise, or the Fairy Mirror Feature.
Fairy Magic Spin makes the fairy using her magic wand to create a cluster of 5 to 7 symbols which often results in a big win.
During the Fairy Surprise Feature, a symbol is selected randomly from the medium symbols on the reels after which other symbols will turn into the selected symbol until a win is awarded.
The randomly activated Fairy Mirror Feature and the Mirror Re-Spin feature have a lot in common. When the mirror is landing on reel 3 in the main game and reels 1, 2 and 3 in Free Spins, the Fairy Mirror Re-Spin feature is activated. The mirror will transform into either the Princess or the Queen symbol. Once transformed, it will award the attractive Mirror Re-Spin. The symbols of the same type as the selected Mirror symbol will remain in the same position on the reels during the Mirror Re-Spin just until no new symbols of the same type appear. During the random feature, it’s the fairy who places the mirror symbol in the middle of reel 3 followed by a Mirror Re-Spin.
The moment you’ll see three of the magical chests anywhere on the reels, one of the Bonus Features will be awarded. You’re now just one click away from Free Spins, a Coin win or the pick and click Mining Bonus.
When the Mining Bonus is activated, you’ll get a chance to pick diamonds which will be broken into pieces for a coin win to show up.
The Free Spins in the Fairytale Legends: Mirror Mirror™ slot will award 10 free spins in which Mirror Re-Spins can be activated as well.
When your pick of chests shows a Coin Win, you’ll be awarded an instant coin win which will be equal to your current bet multiplied by x15.
Now only one question remains: “Mirror, mirror on the wall – who is the best slot reviewer of all?”
