About Faerie Spells Slot
Today, we’re diving into the magical world of forest fairies, when we visit the realm of Faerie Spells and discover some of their eerie magic. The slot comes with all kinds of special features to discover and plays against the backdrop of the most fantastically rendered backdrop.
The game was made by Betsoft and the base game is played on 5×3 reels and 10 paylines. The RTP stands at an abysmally low 91.19% and when you combine that with the medium volatility, this might get frustrating.
We stepped into the gloomy lights of the fairy woods and tested the slot extensively. So now, we can tell you all about the bonus features and everything else you might want to know in our review below!
Faerie Spells Theme and Background
The topic of forest fairies has been a source of fascination for a long time and this is certainly not the first slot to tackle this theme. But just as we’ve grown used to from Betsoft slots, they just do it that little bit more pretty.
The background is drowned into an eerie glow and the symbols on the reels are drawn so beautifully, it’ll make your eyes pop.
The spelling of faerie is the old English word for the small creatures we’re dealing with here. Fairies are mostly grounded in European folklore and are said to be a form of spirit dwelling mostly in forest environments.
Taking that into account, Faerie Spells really hit the nail on the head with their creative direction and it’s just a joy to see the beautiful symbols spin on your reels.
Faerie Spells Gameplay
As we’ve mentioned at the beginning, Faerie Spells are played on the usual 5×3 reels with 10 fixed paylines. But there’s more than meets the eye to this slot as we’ll explain later on.
The symbols are divided into standard symbols and high value symbols. The standard symbols are represented by the card symbols J to A, a symbol with small sprites and a wand. While the high value symbols are represented by a tiara, a dragonfly, a magic tree and two different fairies.
Additionally, there’re a couple of special symbols, triggering all kinds of bonus features. And if you’d like to learn more about those, just check out the boxes below.
The wild symbol is represented by the wise old guardian of the forest in form of a sentinel tree. It substitutes for all other symbols except the faerie queen and scatter symbol. It is also the highest paying symbol in the game.
The magic toadstools are symbols that have cash prizes attached to them. In order for those prizes to be payed out, the faerie queen has to land on the reels together with toadstools though.
After every win, you have a chance to gamble either half or all of your win in a simple heads or tails game. With the magic of the fairy queen, you might be in luck and double your winnings in no time.
If you manage to land at least three faerie queen symbols on your reels, you’ll trigger the free spins. Depending on the number of symbols, you’ll get more free spins:
- 3 symbols grant you 10 free spins
- 4 symbols award you 15 free spins
- 5 symbols get you 25 free spins
You can also buy your way directly into a 25 free spin bonus round by paying 99x your bet amount.
During free spins, you’ll play on special 5×4 reels with different symbols and 1024 ways to win instead of paylines. You’ll also have the chance to win one of four in-game jackpots by collecting the respective symbols. The two smaller jackpots need 7 symbols during one free spin rounds, the third one requires 8, while the biggest one needs 9 symbols.
After each free spin round, the jackpot trail is reset.
Faerie Spells Slot Payouts and Wagering Limits
The bet range in Faerie Spells is very limited and while you can spin the reels with as little as $0.10, your bet amount is capped at $10. That is also the reason for the underwhelming maximum win of $12,252. And while this still amounts to a win of more than 1,252x your bet, highrollers would probably steer clear.
The most disappointing part of the slot would surely be the very low RTP of only 91.19%. We haven’t seen an RTP this low in any modern Video Slot in quite a while. Combined with a medium volatility, this does not make for an insanely fair slot.
Overall, this slot is recommended for players that know their stuff, but aren’t quite in highroller territory yet, since the low maximum bet would put off this segment of players.
