Journey through the forest with Red Riding Hood and her 3 guardian fairies to gather sticky wilds, cluster symbols, respins and free spins.

And with impressive wins and an RTP of 96.3%, this online pokie is definitely one for the books!


As part of Netent’s 2 part Fairytale Legends series, they’ve come up with a Red Riding Hood themed 5×3 reel, 20 payline slot that’ll make you howl with delight. The graphics and audio are lovely and very ‘princess’ like, but the wins are much more princely. In the base game, you get help from 3 guardian fairies who randomly sprinkle their magic over the reels: The Fairy Magic spin overlays a cluster of 5-9 matching high value symbols on the reels for one spin. The Fairy Surprise randomly turns low value symbols into one high value symbols until a win is scored. Fairy Wild spins spreads 3 or 4 wilds symbols on the centre reels and then grants an additional sticky wild respin.

There are also 10 base symbols that, from highest paying to lowest, include the Fairytale Legends initials, which pays out from 2-5 symbols and up to 400 coins, a crown, a key and lock, a rose, a story book and 5 playing card icons. Plus, Red Riding Hood herself is the wild and grants a sticky wild respin whenever 2 or more appear on reels 2,3 or 4.

Special Features

But what really makes this fairytale fantastic is the sensational bonus feature. When 3 Bonus symbols appear on reels 1,3 and 5, the bonus feature is activated. You get to choose from one of three mystery chests to see which one you get: a coin win that awards you x5 your bet, Beware the Wolf Bonus or 10 free spins. The coin win and free spins are pretty self-explanatory, but the wolf bonus is more exciting.

The Beware the Wolf Bonus sends you to a board game where you have to spin the whirlgig to progress down the path through the woods. On the path there are 5 different kinds of locations that you can land on: coin wins, double, arrow, jackpot coin win and collect. As long as you don’t hit a ‘collect’, the bonus game will keep on going and you’ll just keep on collecting wins.


Full brownie points for this online video slot: the theme might be trite, but Netent’s made the most of it with 4 different base game features and a triple treat bonus game with video game leanings. Well worth a play!
