Pixie Gold is a delightfully endearing online slot by Australian slots manufacturer, Lightning Box Games. As its name indicates, the theme revolves around a group of pixies who like to sprinkle their lucky dust around and make people's wishes come true. Pixie Gold is a five-reel slot that offers you an impressive number of ways to win prizes – 1,296.
Plus, it comes with an amazing special feature called the Reelfecta Reel, which makes it possible to create multiple three-of-a-kind wins with a central reel that contains sixteen different symbols. Another unique and excellently animated feature of this mobile-optimised online slot is called Pixie Spin, and it allows the mouse-drawn carriage at the bottom of the reels to award a free re-spin with wild pixie symbols when combined with the King Star symbol.
More about the Software Provider
Lightning Box Games was founded by a group of mathematicians in Australia in 2004. It works with clients in the online, social, and land-based casino industries, and its designers have even helped out companies like IGT and Aristocrat by creating the mathematic models for some of their latest slots.
Above all else, Lightning Box Games considers itself to be "slot design specialists" who engage players by ensuring that each of its slots offers maximum entertainment, a unique theme and special features, cinematic audio, striking graphics, and "just a touch of magic". You can see some excellent examples of the company's work in games like Panda Pow, Silver Lion, Viking Fire, Blazing Goddess, and Stellar Jackpots with Chilli Gold.
Appearance and Sound Effects
Somewhere in the countryside, you'll find a hidden clearing in a densely wooded forest which is where a clan of magical creatures live. The strange glow of gold lights indicates the presence of tiny pixies, and between two gnarled oak trees sits the reels of Pixie Gold. The reels seem extraordinarily large in comparison with most online slots due to the Reelfecta Reel. The Reelfecta Reel is the centre (i.e., third) reel, and it's four rows high and four rows wide while the other reels are one-by-three in structure. The symbols that you'll see appearing on the reel set include yellow ladybirds, acorns, toadstool house, snails, a gold star, a blonde pixie, a bag of pixie dust, the Pixie King, and four playing card symbols.
The music that accompanies the game is just as enchanting as the graphics, and it includes harps and wind chimes.
Bonuses and Special Features
The blonde pixie in Pixie Gold is the wild symbol, and she can help you claim prizes by replacing all symbols except the King Star. N.B., the wild symbol can only appear on the third reel in the base game.
Each time that you spin the reels, you'll see the mouse-drawn carriage at the bottom of the screen move one position to the right. If a King Star (the gold star) appears on a reel directly above the carriage, you're awarded a Pixie Spin. Pixie Spins give you one free spin with at least one wild symbol on the second, and a Lucky Symbol (which is picked at random) on the Reelfecta Reel.
The Reelfecta Reel in Pixie Gold might seem a little complicated at first. As the third and largest of the five reels, it's made up of sixteen individual positions. Any symbols that appear on the Reelfecta Reel can help to form part of a winning combination using symbols on the other reels. This makes it much easier to create multiple three symbols wins using Reels 1, 2, and 3, and even larger wins of up to five symbols if you land matching symbols on Reels 4 and 5.
Pixie Gold uses five reels, up to four rows of symbols, and 1,296 ways to win, and has an average RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 95.00%. The game lets you create winning combos through any position on Reels 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 respectively.
The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-optimised game controls when played on mobile devices.
Pixie Gold is packed full of unique and exciting special features, and the Reelfecta Reel has already proved highly successful with players in other Lightning Box slots such as Druidess Gold. It's a low-risk game that offers regular wins, and its charming graphics and animations are bound to win your heart.
