If you were expecting a blast of Frank Black and friends bellowing through a rendition of Monkey’s Gone To Heaven in a wooded glade, you may be disappointed by IGT’s online slot, Pixies of the Forest. If, however, you’re up for some hot fairy and magic action, plus a host of neat features and big betting, you’ll find much to enjoy.
On the Reels…
A 5 reel, 99 payline (yep, 99) video slot, Pixies of the Forest puts you in a magical world of mischievous winged wonder women. As well as the various fairies enticing you in, we get plenty of forest-like graphics and the usual 9-through-Ace symbols, all accompanied by an ambient soundtrack. No heavy grunge riffs here, sadly.
There’s Tumbling Reels!
With betting starting at just $0.01 there’s plenty of opportunity for the casual slots fan to dive in, but with its 99 payline system, there’s scope for some big wins. Not only that, the slot employs IGT’s exclusive Tumbling Reels feature, giving you even more chances to win.
Keep Watch for the Wilds
The Wild symbol in Pixies of the Forest is the, er, ‘Wild’ symbol, and substitutes for all other symbols except the ‘Bonus’ symbol. Appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4, the Wild also crops up in the game’s Bonus round, when Wilds can also appear on reel 1.
Earn Free Spins in the Free Spins Bonus
Three or more Bonus symbols across the reels triggers the Free Spins Bonus. Click on a square to reveal how many freebie spins you can win, then spin away! Free spins are nice, but free spins with Tumbling Reels are even nicer.
So, what are these Tumbling Reels? Well, after any win, the winning symbols are removed from the reels, and the remaining symbols ‘tumble’ down the screen to form new combos. What it means is that a winning combination can turn into an even better win.
If you like the sound of that, and personally I love the feature as it adds an exciting extra element to your play, be sure to hunt out the original Tumbling Reels slot, IGT’s Renaissance-themed game, Da Vinci Diamonds. Fans of fairies and the like, meanwhile, will probably enjoy Pariplay’s similarly magical slot, The Magical Forest. With tonnes of paylines and the innovative tumbling reels option, this potentially could reap big rewards, if not quite as big as a Frank Black guitar riff.
