Cindereela Slot from Novomatic
Everybody knows the much loved story of Cinderella, a story which has been seen in books, in the theater and most notably on the cinema screen over the years. Novomatic have taken the classic tale and turned it into a casino slot, featuring many aspects of the story on the reels.
These include Cinderella herself, Prince Charming and the fairy godmother, while the two ugly step sisters thankfully fail to make an appearance.
You’ll notice the name of the slot is ‘Cindereela’, a subtle but amusing change that slot fans will enjoy. This is a straightforward slot, with just a free spins feature, but these free games can really pay their way.
How to Win on Cindereela
This Novomatic designed slot has 5 reels and pays from left to right. There is no doubt that Cinderella herself is the most sought after symbol of the game, this offering a payout of 10,000 coins for the maximum five in a row. As well as the impressive payout, Cinderella also acts as the wild symbol, substituting for any other symbol apart from the scatter.
Prince Charming is next on the pay table, worth 2,000 coins for landing the maximum 5. Both Cinderella and Prince Charming pay out for hitting two or more in a row, while all of the other symbols require you to hit at least 3 in a row to land a win. A German Shepherd dog and a pair of rats, which both transform in the story are worth 1,000 coins, while the pumpkin and Cinderella’s red shoes pay 500 coins. The standard symbols are completed by the playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. Like on all Novomatic slots, you will be offered the chance to take a 50 / 50 gamble after a win.
Hit Wins Before Midnight on the Cindereela Slot Feature
The final symbol on the reels is the fairy godmother who appears much like the character does in the Disney films. This is the scatter symbol and makes an appearance on all five of the reels. If you manage to land two scatters you’ll win an immediate 10 coins, while 3, 4 or 5 scatters sees a win of 50, 200 or 2,000 coins heading your way. However, three or more scatters will also see you gain entry to the free spins feature round.
Unlike many free spins features, you won’t be awarded a set number of spins. This is determined by the fairy godmother herself who will fly across the reels and set the time on the clock. Each free spin sees the clock move round by 5 minutes and you’ll continue these spins until the clock reaches midnight when the feature will end. During these free spins all of the symbols will transform. Cinderella will now appear as the beautiful princess, the pumpkin will turn into the stagecoach and all of the animals will also transform. However, it’s not only the symbols that transform, as the wins will too – each win will see a 2x multiplier applied.
Design and Setup
At first glance you might not be too impressed with the visuals at this game, as to be honest they do look a little drab. However, it’s only when you enter the feature that you realize that this is actually by design, the reels transforming to become much more colorful. This is a nice surprise in fact and gives the slot something of a unique air.
For a five reel slot, this game is a little unusual in the fact that there are only ten win lines. This is good for the kind of player who wants more spins for their money, especially when you consider that you can play even fewer. Having chosen the number of lines, you’ll also choose both the bet size and the coin value to give you your total stake for each spin. For those who like the auto play option, this game offers a very straightforward one click auto play.
Cindereela isn’t the only fairy tale themed slot you’ll find at a casino, but it is certainly one that will stick in the memory. Yes, the base game is a little drab, but once you land the feature, with the more appealing visuals, updated symbols and the 2x multiplier, the game really takes off. Just ensure you’re not playing it too late at night.
