Based on the famous German fairytale which was recorded by the Brothers Grimm, the NetEnt 2017 slot release takes you to the deep dark woods where you will join the brother and sister looking for their way out. Hansel and Gretel, the second slot title of the Legendary Fairytales trilogy, uses 5 reels and 10 paying lines, but there is much more to the game than what it may seem at first sight. As soon as you enter the game, you will be enchanted by its outstanding visuals which suit the theme and the overall atmosphere of the game.
Once you start spinning the reels, you will be surprised by all its rewarding features helping you win more. From the game mechanics allowing you to hit wins whenever you land identical symbols in succession on a payline regardless of the position of the first symbol and the direction to expanding Wilds, Re-Spins, Free Spins and instant wins, all these features will boost your winning chances and add more excitement to the gameplay.
Play Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel
All the symbols are in line with the theme of the game with the logo, Hansel and Gretel standing for high-value symbols whereas low win symbols are represented as candies in various colors. The good news is that you won't meet the cruel stepmother or witch on the reels, so you can really enjoy the gameplay. Wild is represented as a cobbled path with doves helping you create more winning combinations instead of eating the children's bread crumbs. The Bonus Scatter symbol is depicted as the treasure chest and it hides even three bonus features you can take advantage of.
How to Play
If you have ever played a NetEnt slot title, you will easily play this one. Featuring 5 reels and 10 fixed paying lines, Hansel and Gretel slot is playable from only $0.10 and you can wager up to $200 per spin, which makes the game a great choice for both beginners and high-rollers.
As we have already mentioned, as long as you land three or more matching symbols in succession starting from any position on a paying line and regardless of their direction, you will win a prize. Wild substitutes for all symbols except for Scatter.
The game uses a standard NetEnt control panel with the Autoplay, Spin and Max Bet button. If you don't feel like spinning the reels manually, once you have set your preferred bet value, you can activate up to 1,000 automatic spins.
Strategy & Tips
Whenever a stack of Wilds appear on the reels 2 or 4 you will be granted a re-spin. During the Stacked Wild Re-Spin feature, stacked Wilds can occur on the reels 1 and 5 too which can result in huge payouts.
The Bonus symbol appears on the reels 1, 3 and 5 and when you hit three treasure chests simultaneously, you will unlock the bonus game. Pick a treasure chest to reveal one of three bonus features: Free Spins, Candy House Bonus and Coin Win. If you reveal free spins, you will be credited 10 free games. The Candy House Bonus feature offers 15 candies hiding up to 120x multipliers and you are supposed to pick 3 of them. Once you have picked three multipliers, you can opt for their average value or pick one of the three chosen multipliers, which may be risky but you can win bigger if you are lucky enough. If you reveal the Coin Win feature, you will be instantly awarded a prize which equals 15x your total bet.
The game also offers three random features, just like the first slot of the Legendary Fairytales trilogy. The fairy will appear out of nowhere to add up to 9 top value symbols to the reels, turn low win symbols into a randomly chosen high paying symbol or add two stacks of Wilds to the reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 which will grant a re-spin too.
NetEnt develops all its new titles in the HTML5 technology to be available on their Touch platform and Hansel and Gretel is no exception. This simply means that you can join the siblings in their adventure to escape the forest and evil witch on your mobile device whether it is a smartphone or tablet and enjoy all the innovative and lucrative features on the go.
