Red Riding Hood

Although it has not yet been released, we already know a good deal about the upcoming Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood video slot. The game is set to be released by Net Entertainment, and is scheduled to be their second major dive into the fairytale themed slots genre, following the success of their legendary Jack and the Beanstalk slot machine game.

There are even rumours that by making Red Riding Hood fall under the banner of Fairytale Legends, NetEnt are creating a franchise of their own, with our Fairytale Legends slots to follow. At this moment in time, though, that prospect is pretty much hearsay.

Developers

As we’ve mentioned, Net Entertainment are the developers behind the new Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood slot. If they are intending on creating a franchise or series of slots with fairytale themes, this would be most impressive.

The Scandinavian online casino software developer doesn’t have many franchises under its wings (save for Mega Fortune, and Jack Hammer) so it would be a welcome addition to their library.

Although we haven’t yet had a proper spin on this video slot; given how well the developers of this slot have done fairytale themed slots in the past, we have high expectations for this release.

How to play

Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood will feature a fairly standard wagering menu bar. It blends in somewhat with the theme of the game, but at the end of the day it doesn’t do anything different from countless other NetEnt developed slots.

On that menu bar, you can select the number of coins you wish to stake per spin (betting level), but you cannot alter any of the 20 paylines which sit upon the 5 reels of this slot. At its cheapest, the minimum wager will set you back just $0.20 per spin, whilst at its most costly, you are looking at maximum wagers of $200.00 per spin.

Features

Wild symbols: Wild symbols are important and appear frequently on the reels of the Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood slot. Wilds can substitute for all standard paying symbols in this video slot, and when 2 or more wilds appear on the second, third, and fourth reels of the slot, a re-spins feature is activated.

Re-spins: During the re-spin feature, any wilds which appeared on the reels will become sticky. They will remain in place for the re-spin, but if you land additional wilds on the reels during this bonus, you will pocket additional re-spins. As long as you keep scoring wilds, you can keep bagging the re-spins and further wins.

Magic Re-spin bonus: Re-spins also form one of three randomly triggered bonuses in the Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood slot. When a fairy appears on the reels, she can trigger one of these three bonuses.

The first of these is the Magic Re-spins bonus. In it, players will land between 5 and 9 overlaying symbols whilst enjoying a free re-spin, in a bonus which is similar to the standard re-spins bonus.

Surprise bonus: The second randomly triggered bonus is the Surprise bonus. In this feature, which can be triggered after any non-winning spin, players could land successive re-spins and will keep doing so until they eventually pocket a win from the slot.

Wild Spin bonus: The final bonus in this slot is a Wild Spin feature. With it, players will land 3 and 5 wild symbols on the reels and they be granted a free re-spin in which to use those wilds. This is possibly the most promising of all the features to appear in this new slot machine game.

Maximum pay-outs

Although this is not confirmed yet, we believe that we are looking at a non-progressive jackpot that is thought to be worth around 400 coins in total. That would make it an average size non-progressive jackpot for a NetEnt designed video slot, which is all the most reason to believe the figure cited. Of course, the only way to find out for sure is to wait until the game is released.

Summary

There is no definitive release date yet for the Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood slot, although we can expect that it will be released this autumn. We’re certainly excited about what we’ve seen, and all things point towards the game being a massive title for the Swedish casino software provider.
