Contrary to popular belief, Yggdrasil Gaming's Beauty and the Beast slot is not a story about how my wife seduced me into marrying her. For the record, I also must tell you that she doesn't like being called the Beast (a few nights on the couch has taught me this valuable lesson). Still, the slot by the same name is pretty popular, and does bring a different tale of beasty love to your screen, while also bringing the potential of winning large cash prizes.
Beauty and the Beast is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that's set in an old mansion, filled with darkness by someone who clearly doesn't care to clean. The game's symbols try to class things up a bit, as you'll find purple pentagon, yellow teardrop, blue heart, pink circle, green triangle, and red heart gems on the reels. You'll also find symbols resembling the beauty, beast, maid, chef, and butler, which pay higher.
Features in the game are pretty frequently hit, thanks to there being no shortage of them. The game has wild symbols, free spins, scatters, a nudge feature, random wilds, and a pick'em bonus, which can all generate large wins for players. You'll also find that the game has a posted Return to Player (RTP) percentage of 96.3% to 97.1%, depending on how you decide to play the game.
To maximize your RTP, you should set the game's Golden Bet to Nudge and choose the Butler, Chef, and Maid in the free spins bonus round. Doing so gets you the best odds of winning more.
The overall experience with Beauty and the Beast is great. I loved the way the game looked and thought that the features were some of the deepest I've ever seen from a Yggdrasil slot. If you're looking for a new game to play and enjoy stories of love, this is a great choice.
