Fairy tales are supposed to be about magic, mystery and danger, so it’s only natural that Two By Two Gaming would ramp up the contrast between sweet and sinister that runs through the heart of the story and this game. On one side of the reels sits a sweet, gumdrop cottage in the middle of enchanting woods, while on the other side the reality of the witches’ lair within is shown, with cauldrons and magic potions covering the filthy shelves. This same contrast is shown in the symbols themselves, which include everything from Hansel and Gretel and the witch to the woodcutter’s axe, a beautiful swan and bags of gold. Unfortunately, the lower value symbols are represented by ivy strewn versions of the 9 – A icons, but the rest of the slot is very original and well designed.
The originality doesn’t stop there, either, because it’s not usual to find a slot with so many rows! There are six rows on this slot and five reels, while there are 40 pay lines to play on as well as 60 ways to win. All those numbers add up to a very good chance of landing some serious cash, which is what we’re all after at the end of the day! You’ll also be able to bet nice and high, with a £/€/$160 limit that won’t hold back high rollers who only want to win the maximum. The payouts themselves aren’t huge, with the top paying symbol being five Hansel symbols at 500x your stake, but the inclusion of stacked symbols in this game really turns the tables. Any of the high-value symbols can stack up to six high at random, greatly boosting your wins and earning an RTP of 96.05%
Much like the best fairy tales the bonus game is simple enough in the Hansel and Gretel Treasure Path slot game, and you just need to land as many breadcrumb trail bonus symbols as you can manage. There are eight possible, and you can land them anywhere on the reels, and while the minimum of three gets you eight free spins, the maximum of eight gets you a whopping 50! There’s also a jackpot game that is triggered completely randomly and lets you search the witches’ chest of drawers for interesting goodies. Land three matching symbols and you could win a progressive jackpot worth over £/€/$10,000!
