Fairy Queen Slot from Novomatic
The Fairy Queen slot is something of a cross between a fantasy themed game and a fairy tale, the reels filled by a nice array of impressive looking symbols.
The fairy queen herself is the standout symbol, both visually and in the impact she has in the game as both the wild and the highest paying symbol.
She is joined by a pixie and an ogre, while a small dragon and plants are also found on the reels. The highlight of the slot is the free spins bonus round where you’ll find that each and every spin is a winning one.
How to Win on Fairy Queen
Fairy Queen is a five-reel slot with a total of 10 win lines. The fairy queen is the highest paying symbol, worth an impressive 9,000 coins for hitting the maximum 5 in a row, while even 4 in a row pays 2,500 coins. This symbol is also the wild and will substitute for any others apart from the scatter, making it even more valuable when it makes an appearance.
Both the ogre and the pixie pay out 750 coins, while the little pink dragon is worth 400 coins. The standard symbols are completed by a magic purple mushroom, a red bluebell plant and the playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
Every time you land a win you’ll have the option of taking a gamble (as long as you are not in auto play mode). This sees you presented with a face down playing card and you’ll simply predict the color of the card. Get it wrong and your win is off with the fairies! However, get it right and you’ve doubled your win.
Win Every Spin with the Fairy Queen Bonus Feature
The scatter symbol shows an image of the woods with the sun shining brightly in the background. This scatter symbol gives you an immediate win starting at 20 coins for hitting just two, with a payout of 7,500 coins for hitting the maximum 5. However, more importantly perhaps, landing 3 or more scatters will see you gain entry into the feature round.
This feature sees you given 10 free spins, but these are certainly no normal spins. Before each of the free games a symbol will be selected at random in the middle of reel one and this symbol will now spread to fill reels 1 and 2 completely for the symbols that pay out for just 2 in a row, and fill reels 1, 2 and 3 completely for those symbols which require 3 in a row to land a win. These filled reels will remain in place, while the other reels will spin. This will ensure that you’ll win on each of the 10 win lines, with the potential for some very big wins if you can land matching symbols on remaining reels. This makes for a great feature, where you are almost guaranteed to walk away with a nice boost to your bankroll.
Design and Setup
Fairy Queen is a sumptuous looking game. The backdrop is a forest scene, although this is met with a crystallized blue coloring which really stands out and gives the slot an intriguing air. Each of the symbols is brilliantly designed too, the pixie and the ogre possibly the best of all, while you’ll also find a great deal of color which provides a very nice contrast to the dark blue backdrop. The only slightly disappointing aspect is the somewhat generic soundtrack, where a slightly haunting theme tune might be more appropriate based on the visuals.
Being a 5 reel slot, it’s a little unusual to find a game with so few win lines at just 10, but this is understandable as the bonus feature guarantees a win on each of these win lines for every free game. In fact, you can actually play any number between 1 and 10 lines if you do want more spins for your money. The game has a handy auto play option which you’ll simply click once to start and then click again to stop.
Fairy Queen is a very enjoyable slot throughout. The excellent visuals give the base game a highly original and unique look which you cannot help but be drawn into. This makes for a good slot by itself, but the bonus feature really pushes it to another level. Having a free games round where EVERY spin wins is a genius idea – if only this was extended to all slot play!
