About Hansel and Gretel

In the realm of fairy tales, Hansel & Gretel has to be among one of the most terrifying. For the uninitiated, Hansel and Gretel are German kids whose parents are poor and are suffering a famine. The parents opt to abandon the kids in the woods. Thinking that they're smart, the kids leave a trail of breadcrumbs, which are promptly eaten by hungry birds that don't want to see the kids go home. Eventually, they come across a house made of candy that belongs to a witch. The witch feeds the children with the intent of cannibalizing them, only to be locked in an oven by the children. In an attempt to cover up the murder, the children return home and bring their parents to live at the candy house, never explaining that they murdered the home's owner. NetEnt is piggybacking off the fairytale with their Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel slot. The game brings a lighter theme to the reels, without any of the gore or child abuse that has been laid out in the real story.

Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel is a 5 reel, 10 payline video slot that takes place in the forest where the children were abandoned. The game's symbols eschew the standard card styles with candy, as you get purple, green, yellow, and red candies. Other symbols in the game include Hansel, Gretel, and a FL symbol. There are also free spin and Coin Win symbols in the game as well.

Features in the game include free spins, a pick'em bonus, stacked symbols, stacked wilds, and full wild reels, in addition to standard wilds. The free spins round is set off when three or more free spins symbols are uncovered, giving you 10 free spins. The coin win symbol gets you a 15x win multipler. The game's pick'em bonus sees you standing in front of the candy house, picking candy to get a win multiplier and trying to win big from it.

In terms of video slots, Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel impresses visually as well as in features. The game is definitely meant for those who don't want a serious slot theme to come their way, instead giving you an almost cartoonish outlook with the game. I guess knowing the true outcome of the fairtyale will help, but dang, this could have been a lot darker should a NetEnt programmer have had a bad day. I think I would have preferred to see that!

All in all though, Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel is a very good game. The bevy of features, and way the game is laid out combine to give players a very high 96.7% return to player percentage (RTP) that is very competitive. Give this game a go if you're looking for a "sweet" win at the slots.

I like this series of slots based on fairytales but this game i prefer less than the others. I dont like bonus game at all, but free spins are ok. However never won more than 15 euros. And sometimes it becomes so boring to play because of many many empty spins in a row.

I've opened this slot so many times that I no longer remember the amount of winnings. I only know that I always had a good time.

I think that this game from NetEnt never really got the recognition it deserved. I think it's a really cute interpretation of the old fairy tale and the features make the gameplay fun. I've had many good winnings on it and I've never had big losses on it, as usually it gives small and frequent wins.
