It’s a tale as old as time and Yggdrasil really know how to tug on our heartstrings with their endearing retelling of Beauty & the Beast. The classic French fairytale with a quite recent adaption as a live action movie is very well-known and seeing it as a video slot made us squeal with excitement.The 5 reel slot with 20 paylines has a varying RTP of up to 97.1% and features all the popular characters, even though the beasts employees are ghostly figures rather than dishes or furniture.We couldn’t take our eyes off the gorgeous illustrations of the castle and its inhabitants and thoroughly enjoyed the rousing musical theme. We’re convinced that you’ll feel the same once you dive into this magical wonderland.
+ PROSThe very well-known story makes for an immediate sense of familiarity.An RTP of up to 97.1% is quite spectacular and well over the average.The ability to buy extra features with the Golden Bet adds excitement to the game.
CONS -The maximum win of $100,000 is nice, but pretty average.When activating the Golden Bet, this game turns into a low volatility game, decreasing the winning amounts.The 20 fixed paylines only pay left to right, which puts this slot on the lower end of the spectrum in that regard.
Take a spin for real money on Beauty and the Beast!
There are many iterations of this story of star-crossed lovers, with Disney’s version of the castle inhabited by Beast and its servants in form of plates, kettles and candleholders probably being the best-known.The story is much older than those versions, though and in the original French tale, a lot of things played out quite differently to the fairytale we know today. Belle, or actually Beauty in the original, was one of six children and the servants in the castle were actually invisible, instead of walking and talking cutlery.Beauty’s sisters even tried to manipulate her to break a promise to the beast, in hopes of having her killed. So, you can see that the original story was quite a bit darker than the popcorn cinema versions of Disney.Yggdrasil’s slot seems to lean a bit more towards the original version, seeing that the servants are surrounded by ghostly glow. But they are distinctly human-shaped. The game doesn’t exude quite the sinister atmosphere, so we’re sure you’ll enjoy it!
The number of features in this 5 reel and 20 paylines slot is staggering and we barely know where to begin.There is, of course, a wild symbol in the form of a blue symbol with the word wild, framed by golden roses. The high paying symbols are Beauty and the Beast (both as the Beast and as the prince), while the low paying symbols are differently shaped gemstones.Click any of the sections below to find out more about the different specials this fairytale has to offer.
Payouts and Wagering Limits
You can spin the reels of Beauty & the Beast with as little as $0.20, but if you really want to go for the maximum win of $100,000, you’ll need to bet the maximum of a $100. Add to that, the Golden Bet and you can make one single spin worth $250.Both the RTP and the volatility, depend on whether or not you activate the Golden Bet. The RTP ranges from 96.3% to 97.1% and while the lower end of that is still a little over average, the maximum RTP is quite sweet. With a medium to low volatility, you know that you never have to wait long for the next win, but they’re also mostly lower.You can see that not only the general theme, but also those settings make for an appealing slot.
