More about the Software Provider
NetEnt is a Scandinavian online casino and slots developer that's been around since the mid-1990s. Its partnerships with film and television studios such as Universal have allowed it to design online slots such as Aliens, South Park, and Scarface.
NetEnt is widely known for its innovative attitude to game development which has led to the creation of exciting special features such as Cluster Pays (e.g., Aloha) and Police Spins (e.g., The Invisible Man). The company also makes progressive jackpot slots, the most noteworthy of which is Mega Fortune.
Appearance and Sound Effects
As the story goes, Little Red (dressed in her red hooded cloak) sets off to visit her grandmother in the woods bearing a basket of goodies, and in Fairytale Legends Red Riding Hood, the cheerful blonde-haired child can be seen down at the bottom-left of the screen carrying her hamper.
She starts walking each time that you hit the Spin button, which makes the background of fields and trees at dusk alter the further she travels. The sounds of birds tweeting and owls hooting in the forest are accompanied by a merry musical accompaniment.
Fairytale Legends Red Riding Hood lets you form winning combinations using symbols of Little Red, the Treasure Chest, the Storybook, the Pink Rose, the Gold Key, the Royal Crest, and the FL logo, as well as five low-value playing card symbols.
Bonuses and Special Features
The Fairytale Legends Red Riding Hood slot includes seven bonus features!
The wild symbol is represented by Little Red, and she can appear on the middle three reels in the base game and all five reels in the Free Spins Bonus. Whenever at least two wild symbols are visible in the base game, they act as Sticky Wilds and grant you a Sticky Wild Re-Spin to try and win you a prize.
The three other bonus features which can only be unlocked using special symbol combinations are Coin Win, Free Spins, and the Beware the Wolf Bonus which all come courtesy of the Treasure Chest symbol. You must land a Treasure Chest on the first, third, and fifth reel in the main game to trigger the bonus, and depending on which of the three chests you select, you gain access to one of the three features below:
Coin Win – an instant award of fifteen times your total bet;
Free Spins – ten free spins;
Beware the Wolf Bonus – this is a board game-style bonus game which includes five different location types – Double (doubles the prizes for the duration of the feature), Arrow (changes the direction in which you travel around the board), Coin Win, Jackpot Coin Win, and Collect (the wolf appears and ends the bonus). You move around the board by spinning the whirligig.
The Fairytale Legends Red Riding Hood slot also comes with three randomly-triggered special features that can be awarded by the fairy when she flies onto your screen:
Fairy Surprise – the fairy can appear after a non-winning spin to select a random medium-win symbol and change other symbols on the reels (starting with the playing card symbols) into the same medium-win symbol until a winning combination is created;
Fairy Magic Spin – an overlay consisting of a cluster of between five and nine matching symbols (but not the FL logo) is added to the reels for the duration of one spin;
Fairy Wild Spin – three or four wild symbols appear across the middle three reels during the spin, and once the reels have stopped and any wins awarded, you get a Sticky Wild Re-Spin.
Fairytale Legends Red Riding Hood uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and twenty fixed paylines, and has an impressively high RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 96.33%.
The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
With no less than seven special features and a top jackpot of four hundred times your bet, you'll be skipping off into the forest with great gusto when you play Fairytale Legends Red Riding Hood. It's a mobile-optimised slot that can keep you entertained for hours as you try to unlock bonuses like free spins, re-spins, and extra wilds, and with a little extra help from the game's resident fairy, you could live happily ever after.
