Fairytale Legends: Mirror Mirror™ Slot Review
ALL ABOUT FAIRYTALE LEGENDS: MIRROR MIRROR ™ SLOT
NetEnt are of course one of the biggest game providers on the planet.
Their back catalogue spans a wide range of titles from the ubiquitous free spins fodder that is Starburst, to seminal slots titles like Gonzo’s Quest, high variance classics Dead or Alive, and Hollywood brands, Planet of the Apes and the recent Jumanji. To name just a very few!
Whilst you’ll be hard-pushed to find a casino that doesn’t include NetEnt as part of its catalogue, weirdly they are not always the most popular studio amongst slots fanatics. This is largely because of their tendency to churn out low to medium variance games with a raft of features that create a broad spread of payout without much left for bonus rounds and big wins.
That said, NetEnt’s production values are usually pretty high and with so many features, you rarely hit too many dry spins in succession. It just depends on what floats your boat.
If you’re not already familiar with the Fairytale Legends series of games you can check out Hanzel and Gretel and Little Red Riding Hood at any NetEnt casino. Mirror Mirror™ is the third in the series, and true to form, its feature-packed and low-medium variance. However, it does have 243 ways to win, and a top payout of 1,822x which isn’t too shabby.
So let’s take a closer look.
Fairytale Legends: Mirror Mirror™ Game Set Up
As you would expect, Mirror Mirror™ has an enchanted feel to it – the background to the reels is all lush green hills and a distant fairytale castle.
The game has 5 reels, 3 rows and 243 ways to win, an RTP of 96.48% and a low-medium variance. You can stake from 10p to £100 per spin.
Mirror Mirror™ Game Symbols
The lower value symbols in the game are the cards, 9 through to Ace. The higher value symbols are the lantern, the green gem, the princess, the queen, and the Fairytale Legends logo which is the highest paying at 150x for five in a payline.
Look out as well for the Mirror symbol which can only appear on reel 3. When it does, either the Queen of the Princess will appear in the mirror, causing all other instances of that symbol on the reels to lock in place before a re-spin is triggered.
Mirror Mirror™ Base Game Features
In true NetEnt style, during the base game there are three random features that can be triggered. They work like this:
Fairy Tale Magic Feature:A cluster of 5 to 7 medium value symbols appear on the reels for 1 spin.
Fairy Surprise Feature: One medium value symbol is chosen to replace all lower value symbols. This continues until a winning combo is found.
Fairy Mirror Feature: The Mirror symbol is added to the third reel, triggering the Mirror re-spin feature.
Mirror Mirror™ Bonus Game Features
There are three bonus features in the game. You can trigger them either by landing 3 bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously, OR by landing a bonus symbol on reels 1 and 3 on a losing spin during the base game.
Here’s what you get …
Mining Bonus Feature – 9 crystals appear on the screen. Crack them one at a time to reveal cash prizes.
Coin Win Feature – Get a cash prize of 15x your stake.
Free Spins Feature – Here you get 10 free spins. The added bonus is that should you land the Mirror symbol lands at any time, you automatically pick up a re-spin.
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
This is pretty much what we have come to expect from NetEnt. It’s looks great, plays nicely with plenty of features happening at regular intervals in your gameplay, but big, big moments are going to be few and far between. If you’re a high variance thrill seeker this probably won’t be one for you. The base game payouts are frequent but small, though there is of course always the chance of landing a full screen of top symbols for a 1,822x prize.
