Rather than simply being a rebranded version of the same game though, NetEnt’s Mirror Mirror slot creation comes with some distinguishing features – including being the one and only Fairytale Legends game with 243 ways to win. Yet, there’s much more to it than just that – with a raft of random and bonus features to look out for as you play. As such, let us take you through our complete review of Fairytale Legends: Mirror Mirror.
*Please note: Our free-to-play Mirror Mirror slot demo is unavailable for UK residents.
If you’ve spun the reels on the other Fairytale Legends games, it won’t come as a surprise to learn that Mirror Mirror brings with it plenty of colour and quality artwork. NetEnt are one of the best slot storytellers in our opinion, so expect the graphics, sound effects and other ambience to be on point.
In terms of Mirror Mirror’s slot mechanics, it deploys the classic 5x3 reel grid. However, there are 243 ways to land a coin win, rather than the usual bet lines. Throw in a double hat-trick of random and bonus features combined and you have a pretty entertaining title overall.
Mirror Mirror’s RTP: 96.48%.
Type of casino game: Video Slot.
Video Slot build: 5 reels, 3 rows and 243 ways to win
Mirror Mirror game features: Mirror Re-Spins, Fairy Magic Spin, Fairy Surprise, Fairy Mirror, Mirror Mirror Free Spins Bonus Round, Coin Win Bonus, and the Mining Bonus Feature.
Although the game is one of the few that doesn’t include a dedicated Wild symbol, the game features list demonstrates that there’s clearly enough to pass that fact by. In total, there are 11 different symbols that can appear on the board – all of varying value and importance.
As the Mirror Mirror slot game was developed by NetEnt in HTML5, that means gamers will have no problem switching up play time between desktop and mobile devices.
You can enjoy all the same features on your smaller screens these days with little to no issue, while there’s even the choice to play in portrait mode too – if you prefer. Now, let’s take you through all those Mirror Mirror slot features, shall we?
If you’ve never played a 243 ways to win NetEnt slot before then don’t be intimidated – it’s a pretty simple concept to understand. You’ll have probably come across bet lines before, which are are pre-determined patterns which symbols need to land in for a win to be granted. However, similarly to NetEnt’s Cluster Pays slots, 243 ways to win does away with this formula.
To land a winning spin on Mirror Mirror, you need to see the same symbol appear on at least the first three reels (or just the first two, in the case of the game logo symbol), starting from the left. Exactly how much that winning spin is worth is determined by the chosen symbol’s value, plus how many of them there are, so it’s relatively easy to spot a successful round when one occurs.
Now to the game's standout moments, starting with the Mirror Re-Spin.
During the main game, you may see the Mirror symbol appear on the third reel only, activating this feature. Alternatively in the Free Spins Bonus Round, the Mirror symbol can land on the first three reels.
The icon will transform into either the Princess or Queen symbol while a Re-Spin takes place. The symbols of the same type will remain in place during this Re-Spin to try and grant you a combination.
As the reels turn in the main game of Mirror Mirror, you may occasionally see a few random features burst onto the screen. These include:
A random number of between 5 – 7 medium-value symbols (except the game logo) will be distributed across the board, appearing as an overlay, for one spin.
If a particular turn has yielded no win, you may encounter a Fairy Surprise. When you do, a random medium symbol will be selected from the landing icons, converting other low-win symbols into it. This will continue until a win is granted.
If a Mirror symbol fails to land on the third reel, the Fairy Mirror Feature may take matters into its own hands by placing one there itself. This, of course, results in the above Mirror Re-Spin beginning.
It won’t be long until you notice gold boxes appearing in reel spaces either. When one appears on the first, third and fifth reels, you’ll be given the choice of three gold boxes to open. Hiding inside will be one of the following:
Crack open the mining bonus to be taken to a different gaming area, with valuable crystals attached to the wall. In essence, it’s one of NetEnt’s classic pick and click games, and you’ll earn a random coin win for every crystal you smash from the wall with your pickaxe.
You’re not made privy to the exact number of swings you’ll have, nor are the crystal values consistent. Therefore, whether the Mining Bonus is merely a nice little add-on or a considerable victory depends on each event.
Although packaged within one of the Bonus Rounds, we’re glad to confirm that Mirror Mirror has a Free Spins Bonus Round. When you pluck this treat from one of the gold boxes, you’ll be given ten turns on a special set of Free Spins Mirror Mirror reels.
Also, you’re able to prolong this round with Mirror Re-Spins if one or more of the triggering symbol appears – leading to a lot of potential.
The final Bonus feature is a classic coin win. The exact amount will be your current chosen bet multiplied by 15, ensuring a useful addition is a given.
One aspect that 243 ways to win doesn’t change is how to place your wager. NetEnt’s Mirror Mirror slot offers you 10 bet levels, plus coin values ranging from 0.01 – 1. Simply adjust these settings until your desired total is reached, with a minimum bet of €0.10 possible compared with a maximum bet of €100.
The maximum Mirror Mirror win on a single bet way is €1,500 or 1,500 coins. However, this total can, in theory, be eclipsed if additional features present themselves within a spin.
