We have all grown up listening to tales of fairies and know them as pretty, winged creatures with the power to grant wishes to those who are blessed. Well, Endorphina created a slot where the fairies can grant your wishes of winning big. Set in a sea of clouds with the reels divided by leafy vines connected to trees on both sides of the screen, the game’s principal symbols are three fairies, a blonde, a brunette, and the third with ginger-colored hair.
The fairies and the magic amulet are the high-paying symbols of the game. Other symbols are the high cards, 10, J, Q, and K, which are low value icons. A diamond symbol also lands up frequently, which acts a scatter and also a wild. Though the slot is mostly two-dimensional, the title fairies become animated whenever they land in a combination, adding some esthetic to the fantastical theme. Other symbols also acquire unique graphical qualities whenever they land together.
Fairy Tale comes in a 5 x 3 grid and has 20 paylines running through it, which are adjustable. Winning combinations are only those that appear from right to left. The betting window is from 0.01 to 200 coins, though high rollers can spend up to $200 per turn. The game can be played in auto-mode if you prefer the hands-free version. This keeps spinning the reels till the player activates the Free Spins feature or manually stops it. Fairy Tale has an RTP of 96%.
The blonde fairy is the highest payer of the three heroines of the game. When four of her land at once, the payout is 1,000x; a combination of 5 earns you 5,000 times the stake. When five brunette fairies land together on an activated payline, they bless the player with 2,000 times the original bet. When five of the ginger-haired fairies land in a combination on an activated payline, the payout is 750 times the bet.
The golden amulet studded with red and green jewels pays out in the same ratio as the ginger-haired fairy. A significant aspect of the three fairies and the magic amulet is that players are only blessed with wins when two of kind rolls on the reels. This makes it possible to land smaller payouts more frequently, particularly with the wilds showing up all over the clouds. This reduces the volatility significantly in this highly unpredictable game.
Given the theme, all the card characters are in a font that used a cursive, decorative style. The Aces and Kings both have the same payouts: 150 times the bet for five of a kind, 40 times for four, and 5 times for three. Queens, Jacks, and the number 10 pay slightly less, but can still result in substantial wins. They pay 100 times for five of a kind on a payline, 25 times with a line-up of four and 5 times for a combination of three.
All five symbols require at least three of a kind to create a winning combination. The top payouts can go up to 5,000 times in the regular gaming mode, which can amount to many four-figure wins. The number of free spins you receive in the bonus round has no limits; the five times multiplier-effect of the free spins can enable players to win as much as 25,000 times their original wager. With a round of good fortune in the risk gamble, the fairies can bless players with truly astounding wins.
The slot features a 'Take Risk' button, which launches the risk game for players who feel especially lucky. The dealer opens the first card and players are offered four cards to pick from. If they get a higher card their winnings are doubled. If they lose, all winnings are forfeited and players return to the original game. Players can close the risk game whenever they want and opt for the winnings.
The diamond is the most significant symbol of Fairy Tale. It’s both a scatter and a wild and the payouts are activated according to scatter norms. However, it can also enable winning permutations based on the line-bet rules, which means it functions in both ways that a video slot may be configured in.
Five diamonds in a row can trigger one of the biggest winning ratios in the game at 4,000 times the bet. Four diamonds bring it down to 400 times and three of them net 40 times the original stake. The payouts occur irrespective of where the symbols land on the screen. The scatters pay even when the whole combination is used for a bigger line stake win. This results in better average payouts than with wild symbols since these combinations are easier to land.
The chance to get unlimited free spins is a rare feature in modern video slots. The feature is activated with a payout through a diamond combination. At least three diamonds anywhere on the reels, not only produce a win, they trigger the bonus feature too.
Called Set the Doves Free, the bonus has four cages with doves in them. Players use the free spins to collect keys, which are awarded randomly open the cage. Each dove set free gets you a spin win, which is multiplied by two for the first cage opened. The multiplier goes up to five when the fourth key lands. This is closes the bonus game feature, which cannot be activated again.
