My, what big eyes you have! NetEnt’s forthcoming fairy tale-inspired slot is due out next month but they’ve left us a trail of breadcrumbs to follow in the meantime, thanks to a video preview of the Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood Slot. Let’s take a look at the video and see what it means for slot fans.
A childhood favourite back to life
Many of us will no doubt have fond memories of our favourite childhood stories. Tales told to us before bedtime by mum and dad. Stories that made up our first books as we learnt to read on our own. NetEnt has taken on stories that evoke nostalgia in the past (remember the popular Jack and the Beanstalk slot?) and it has applied this winning formula to another fairy tale.
In the video, we can see our protagonist, the eponymous Red Riding Hood, as well as a fairy companion, complete with wings, a wand and tinkly sound effects. The 3-row, 5-reel configuration is familiar to all slot fans and the symbols include motifs such as keys, gilt shields, glittering roses and chests that contain goodies!
The game lets the player follow Red Riding Hood on her journey through the forest as she travels to her grandmother’s house. There are plenty of bonuses and features to enjoy along the way.
Big bad bonuses
The newly released footage shows us what we can expect when spinning the reels on this slot game. We get a peek at what that fairy companion can do, which includes triggering Fairy Magic Spins and Fairy Wild Spins.
Those special chest symbols we mentioned earlier? Those contain free spins – definitely good news for players!
The Beware the Wolf Bonus looks awesome too. Trigger this bonus and Red Riding Hood will move along the path a certain number of places, landing on bonuses as she goes, in her quest to reach the huge 100x jackpot at the end of the trail at Grandma’s house.
October Launch Date
As laid out in NetEnt’s Q4 Roadmap, we can expect Red Riding Hood on the 24 October. That’s still a few weeks away but NetEnt will, as usual, release nuggets of information about the game ahead of its release.
Check back here to stay up to date of any developments and then, on launch day, enjoy a demo game and learn about which casinos are offering bonuses to mark the game release.
