With five to seven reels, three rows plus 20 fixed Paylines, Quickspin’s Fairy Gate Slot transports you to a magical wood, home to this bewitching game’s fairy folk! You’ll find a lot of charm here, not least in the soft-focus graphics and soothing soundtrack.
The reels are purple, the backdrop is green, and if you didn’t believe in fairies before, you might just think again after playing Fairy Gate Slot! So head off on a forest adventure, offering a couple of great features which make this game more than just another firefly-studded, ‘magical’ slot.
It’s summertime in the woods, and the forest is teeming with life. For now, the gate, set within a huge tree trunk, remains closed. But it can open at random on any spin, and that’s when the magic kicks off. Look out, too, for the gold dust which falls down on every winning spin.
How to play
Price per spin kicks off at 20p, but you can pay up to £100 a pop.
As always, you’ll need to set your bets before doing anything else. Use Total Bet to adjust your coin denomination and Autoplay to turn the reels automatically and without interruption for a preset number of spins. And, as ever, you can play on your device of choice, mobile or otherwise.
The settings panel has your game history, and you can also set a limit for maximum loss from a single session.
The four main fairy icons are in red, pink, green and blue, with the first two being the most rewarding. Together with the card values, A through J, these essentially make up your set of symbols.
When the gates open, two additional reels are revealed, complete with Fairy Orb icons, inside of which is between two and five glowing small fairies.
The fairies show up on the reels by day, while forming part of the bonus features at night.
Fairy Gate Slot special features
The Wild replaces all icons except the bonus Scatter, an orb in a frame with the word ‘Bonus’ on it. The Wild here is a purple and golden symbol with the word Wild on it.
Another special symbol is the Fairy Orb, only seen on the extra reels when they appear.
Fairy Wild respins
This can begin at random after any spin. The carved gate in the tree opens to reveal two extra reels, on which the Fairy Orb symbols land, and which remain active for as long as the round lasts. (These reels contain no other symbols and do not form part of any Payline.)
Should at least one Fairy Orb icon land during a spin, for each one you get between two and five extra Wilds on the first five reels, plus you get a respin. This perk only ends when no more Fairy Orbs land.
Fairy Wild free spins feature
This triggers when at least three Scatters land anywhere on your screen, awarding you with 10 freebies. You can play this while the full seven reels are active. However, although this can add lots of Wilds and lead to a tidy win, it does mean the respins will no longer be active.
Unfortunately, you won’t find a progressive jackpot in Fairy Gate. The highest default wins on a single Payline during the base game is 532x stake.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player here is a respectable 96.66%, while volatility falls just within the higher side of medium.
Only you can know if you think this one’s sprinkled with fairy dust! But we think Quickspin has pulled off the difficult trick of creating a magic-themed slot that’s not too saccharine or childish while retaining a good deal of charm. It may even stir some childhood memories of fairytales as you let your imagination run riot!
