ABOUT THIS SLOT

Pixies of the Forest from IGT beckons players into its twinkling garden with a host of attractive features, including 99 paylines, Tumbling Reels and 3 for 1 betting which gives you 99 paylines for the price of 33. The peaceful and uplifting atmosphere includes the sounds of lilting laughter, twittering birds and a lapping stream, while a lush green forest creates an inviting background with a rainbow shining overhead. Released in 2012, this fairy tale real money online slot has a retro feel and simple gameplay with a 5 reel-3 row layout and straight forward bonus features.

RTP, VARIANCE AND PAYOUTS

Pixies has a slightly below average RTP of 94.9%, while its medium volatility level gives a balanced number of medium-sized payouts in relation to bets. The minimum bet here is 30p per spin, which is classed as 1 coin, allowing all 99 paylines to be active. This is sold as a ‘3 for 1’ betting feature, but lower rollers might prefer the option of playing with fewer payines in exchange for a lower bet.

SYMBOLS AND PAYTABLE

You need to match 3 symbols on a payline to receive a payout while playing Pixies of the Forest. The symbols include 3 winged pixies – one blonde, one brunette and one purple-haired – along with the game logo and Queen, King and Ace high card symbols. There is also a pink Wild symbol, which can make substitutions to increase your winning chances, along with a yellow Bonus symbol, which can activate the Free Spins round.

Payouts in the base game are good with the game logo awarding the top award of 2000 coins for 5 matches. The purple-haired pixie awards 1,000 coins for 5 of a kind, while the brunette pixie awards up to 400 coins and the blonde pixie awards up to 150 coins. The high cards pay the lowest rewards in the game with 25 to 40 coins available for 5 matches on a payline.

GAMEPLAY AND FEATURES

Wild Symbol

Pixies of the Forest has a Wild symbol, which can stand in for all the other symbols in the game, except the Bonus symbol, to create more winning combinations.

Free Spins Round

Landing 3 or more Bonus symbols will trigger the Free Spins round. When this happens, you need to select the Choose symbol to reveal the number of freebies awarded to you. This can be anything from 5 to 12 Free Spins.

Tumbling Reels

Pixies of the Forest uses tumbling reels – always a favourite with players – which give you more ways to win on every spin. Whenever you hit a winning combination of symbols, the winners will disappear to be replaced by new symbols that tumble down into their place. This continues until there are no more winning combinations. This means in effect, you could get many payouts from the same lucky spin.

3 for 1 Betting      

The minimum bet is 30p, which uses one coin and takes advantage of the 3 for 1 betting feature. Theoretically, this means you can 3 payines for 1 – or as it turns out, all 99 paylines for the price of 33.

OUR VERDICT

The retro vibe, magical forest theme and birdsong background of Pixies of the Forest creates a really peaceful slot that’s a pleasure to play. Although the sounds of the giggling pixies could become irksome after a while (especially if you’re not winning), in general this twinkling, uplifting game is a delight! The 99 paylines give plenty of winning chances and although this has a below-average RTP, there are still some decent payouts to be had. The best part of Pixies is the Tumbling Reels feature, as you can get so many more wins from one spin. The Wilds also pop up regularly, which also helps to mitigate the RTP. The 3 for 1 betting feature is admittedly misleading, as you just pay triple the amount, but in general the gameplay is so bright and happy you can forgive the odd blip. If you want to lift your spirits with a carefree retro slot, this could be your perfect magical forest adventure.
