NetEnt Newbie - Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood online slot

Netent Featured Game Fairtytale Legends Red Riding Hood Online Slot Game

“Oh NetEnt, what big wins you have!”

“All the better to keep you entertained, m'dear...”

Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood™ has arrived, so we went frolicking in the forest with Red while trying to steer clear from the local wildlife – have a look at what's waiting for you!

A new era of fantastic casino games

So, once upon a time the game developers at Net Entertainment were facing a dilemma: while their NetEnt Rocks-campaign had exceeded all expectations, they were still on the lookout for an enduring classic and a real crowdpleaser, a bit like... Jack and the Beanstalk™! So, off they went to the local library, and after leafing through fairytales and folk fantasies they could see it: Fairytale Legends would be their next big thing, with the living legend, Red Riding Hood leading the procession of new online slots to NetEnt casinos!

About the main game

The road to granny's cottage is long and meandering but lined with great wins, so tag along!

As you play, Red Riding Hood is both your gaming companion and your own personal cheerleader. While this sort of character is familiar to players of NetEnt casino games from Gonzo's Quest™ and other popular favourites, Red Riding Hood is definitely a more active character than Gonzo – if she was wearing an activity tracker like a FitBit, she'd probably rack up a good number of steps just in one gaming session.

And because no modern video slot is complete without bells and whistles, Red Riding Hood has multiple bonus features and perks to keep the spinning of reels entertaining.

The game in numbers

For number-crunchers, the game has been calculated to have a payout percentage of just over 96%. The reels are set to a 3x5 formation while there are 20 paylines all spread across the reels. The paytable has 5 medium-paying symbols and 5 low-paying symbols, along with the Red Riding Hood Wild and Treasure Chest Scatter. With the highest win from a Logo symbol being up to 4,000 coins, the game can be considered to be of medium volatility.

Special features in the main game

Preview of Netents Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood

Set the reels in motion and watch bobble-headed Red Riding Hood stroll along on the screen as you spin for wins in the base game: as you score wins, there are airpunches and jumps for joy.

Lo and behold: a wild fairy appears randomly in the main game for some extra wins! Different features are all triggered at random, and the perks range from Fairy Magic to a fairly awesome Fairy Surprise.

  • Fairy Magic Spins bring about a random cluster of 5 to 9 medium win symbols on the reels for the duration of one spin.
  • Fairy Wild Spins are always invariably followed by a Sticky Wild Re-Spin, as 3 to 4 Wild Symbols first appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 during one spin
  • Sticky Wild Re-Spins can also be triggered at other times as two or more Wild Symbols are all it takes for the Wilds to turn into Sticky Wilds, giving you a Sticky Wild Re-Spin.
  • In the main game Wild Symbols appear on reels 2, 3 and 4, and if you've made it to the Free Spins feature, they can be found on all reels during the bonus game.

One can only imagine that the little pixie must go through several tons of fairy dust during gameplay as the appearances are certainly not infrequent nor unwelcome.

Bonus game selection

What does it take to get to bonus games? Simple: if 3 bonus symbols (the treasure chest) appear on reels 1, 3 and 5, you're off to the bonus round where you get to pick the loot from one of three bonus chests.

The bonus chests hide three kinds of goodies:

  • A simple Coin Win
  • 10 free spins
  • Beware of the Wolf Bonus

If you pick a Coin Win, you get your current bet, i.e. the last bet before the bonus feature, returned to you with a 15x multiplier without further ado. Should you pick the Free Spins instead, you get to spin the reels on the house while you can also score some more spins from the feature.

The map of the Beware the Wolf bonus round has five types of locations: Coin Win, Double Arrow, Jackpot Coin Win - get your bet back with up to 200x multiplier - and Collect. Players can spin the whirligig (yes,that really is a word) on the game screen in order to move around and win coins to their balance. This bonus feature works a bit like a kind of Snakes and Ladders, or A Wolf and the Granny's Cottage, rather. The question here is: can you make it past the wolf to the bonus jackpot?

Where to play Red Riding Hood?

The series is set to continue far into 2017 with more enchanting slot machines coming your way... we look forward to seeing which famous folktale NetEnt takes on next.

In the meantime, as a NetEnt newbie Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood™ can be found from most online casinos that feature NetEnt games in their selection – and as you would expect, the game runs just as well on the mobile platform as it does on browser, so mobile players do not have to feel like they're going to miss out on the fun and they can all get their bedtime dose of fairytales from Red Riding Hood Touch™... or you can take the game out for a stroll and meet your own step goal for the day in a jiffy.

We got a taste of this slot at Royal Panda, while bgo is also offering cool launch specials for players in the game – check out their player promotions for extra extra perks for your gameplay, and make the most of the simple yet fun casino game at your own pace.
