Many secrets still lay hidden in the various forests of the world. There’s only so much we can see with satellites and drones from above. Some secrets, like fairies, gnomes and unicorns, can only be found if you venture deep into the forest on the ground level!
It will take a fair amount of luck to find these magical creatures. Even more so to witness them during the night, when they’re at their prettiest!
Faerie Nights Slot Review
The slot is played on a five reel board with 25 fixed paylines. At first glance, the graphics don’t seem as impressive as other 1×2 Gaming titles. During the gay, you just see a standard forested area. A few shrubs twist and turn with the wind, and a butterfly occasionally flies past. But the real magic only happens when night falls. The forest becomes dark, lit up by the various flowers and plants that you’ve seen in the background.
We were hoping that symbol designs would also swap from light to dark like the background did. Sadly, we didn’t see that here! The icons are comprised of playing card royals and unique symbols. The letters and numbers have been cleverly transformed into tree bark, covered with moss and flowers to help them fit the theme. Other icons include mushrooms, flowers, butterflies, leprechauns, faeries, and unicorns.
And in terms of special features, the game offers the following bonuses. There’s a tree man Wild that appears during the day, and expands to cover his entire reel. You can also find a special, dark-haired fairy during the night, who doubles all winnings when she’s on the board. The day/night cycle is controlled via free spins. Normal gameplay is daytime, and free spins are played during nighttime.
How to Play Faerie Nights
You play this release on a 5×3 board with 25 fixed paylines. To win, players must collect three or more identical symbols in adjacent positions, starting with the leftmost reel. All wins must follow one of the currently active paylines, or else the cash prize won’t be awarded to punters. The jackpot for Faerie Nights is 2000x your total stake.
If you’re planning to stay long enough to see night-time, you’ll have to come prepared. Prepared with knowledge of the special features you’ll need to use to win big!
During normal gameplay, a tree man Wild can appear on the board. He will expand and cover the entirety of the reel he landed in. No sticky Wilds here; it resets after the next spin like every other symbol.
Collect three, four or five Scatters to win seven, nine or eleven free spins. While the free spins bonus is activated, the time swaps to night. That means the expanding Wild can no longer appear on the reels. Instead, new bonuses are active to make up for it, but only while free spins last.
If you’ve been wondering where the sticky Wilds were, they were waiting until nighttime to come out and party! When this Wild lands, it remains in place for several spins. How long it will remain sticky is randomly determined each time a new sticky Wild is drawn.
Find the dark-haired fairy on the board during free spins to have all your wins increased by 2x. Both her and the sticky Wild bonus disappear from the reels when free spins end, and cannot be triggered.
We really liked the day/night cycle the developers implemented. The fact it also ties back into actual gameplay was icing on the cake! Like other 1×2 Gaming slots, it’s brimming with potential, but it doesn’t quite realize it. We look forward to seeing the developer improve. And getting lots of fun games in the process!
