Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel

The Fairytale Legends - Hansel and Gretel slot from NetEnt is based on the Brothers Grimm's dark tale of a brother and sister who are the children of a poor woodcutter. Their evil stepmother leads them into the woods in the hopes that the pair will become lost, and indeed, the children are captured unwittingly by a wicked witch who lives in a house made from candy.


Luckily, the tale has a happy albeit rather alarming ending as the kids push the witch into her oven and are reunited with their father. You too could be living happily ever after when you take Fairytale Legends - Hansel and Gretel for a spin as it's bursting with special features, and can be played with as little as 10p per spin. There are Stacked Wild Re-Spins which have the potential to deliver big wins, three random features which come courtesy of a cute fairy, and three bonuses where you can tuck into instant coin wins, free spins, and multipliers.

More about the Software Provider

NetEnt is one of the biggest names in the online gaming industry, and its slots can be enjoyed on mobile devices thanks to an exclusive software platform known as NetEnt Touch.

But, there are hundreds of other NetEnt slots to discover such as Gonzo's Quest, Starburst, and Dracula.

Appearance and Sound Effects

Disney-style orchestral music instantly brightens your mood as you find yourself under a starlit sky walking behind the two children towards the dark and gloomy forest in the distance. Staying true to the Brothers Grimm's story, Fairytale Legends - Hansel and Gretel portrays the kids barefoot and wearing ragged clothes, and they stand either side of the reels waiting for you to start spinning, upon which, they set off towards the forest again.

Fairytale Legends - Hansel and Gretel uses a variety of symbols including Gretel, Hansel, the FL logo, amethysts, emeralds, rubies, and topazes, treasure chests, and a red-brick path.

Bonuses and Special Features

Fairytale Legends - Hansel and Gretel is a slots game with a vast number of special features.

To start with, there's the wild symbol which is represented by the red-brick path, and it can appear stacked on Reels 2 and 4 in the base game and also on the first and fifth reel during the re-spin feature. Whenever a stacked Red-Brick Path symbol covers a full reel, you get a Stacked Wild Re-Spin.

The scatter symbol is the treasure chest, and when it lands on Reels 1, 3, and 5 simultaneously, it awards one of the three bonus games. In the Coin Win Bonus, you get fifteen times your total bet. In the Free Spins Bonus, you receive ten free spins. In the Candy House Bonus, you can pick three of the candies on the side of the house. Each candy contains a secret multiplier. Once you've picked all three candies, you can pick just one multiplier to keep or take the average of the three multipliers combined.

Fairytale Legends - Hansel and Gretel also boasts three Fairy Features which can be randomly triggered. Fairy Surprise can only be triggered following a non-winning spin, and it picks a symbol from the reels at random and transforms other symbols to match it until a winning combination is made. Fairy Wild Spin adds at least two full stacks of wild symbols to the first, second, fourth, and fifth reels before awarding a Stacked Wild Re-Spin. Fairy Wonder Spin adds an overlay of between five and nine FL symbols to the reels for the duration of one spin.

Fairytale Legends - Hansel and Gretel uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and twenty paylines, and has an excellent RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 96.71%.
