Pixies of the Forest
When was the last time you trekked through the forest in the hope of coming across a pixie? Probably never. That's because pixies exist only in the fantasy world of online slots like IGT's Pixies of the Forest. The good news is that the pixies in this game are not up to mischief. Instead, they want to help you win.
Bonus: Tumbling Reels
About Pixies of the Forest
Pixies of the Forest is themed around mythical creatures whose origins date back centuries, a rare online slots theme. These particular pixies are represented as females with silver wings. Behind them is a forest backdrop with a glowing sky of blue and purple hues. Surrounding the 5 x 3-reel set is a gold border that works very well with the overall theme.
This game is a 5-reel game with 99 fixed paylines. Wagering is based on a 3-for-1 principle, meaning that one coin covers three lines. You can bet on all 99 paylines with 33 coins. To determine your wager, use the + and – buttons found in the control panel underneath the reels. Your wager will be multiplied by 33 to account for the 3-for-1 betting.
Gameplay and Symbol
Gameplay in Pixies of the Forest is just what you would expect from an IGT title. Set your wager by determining your coin value, then spin either manually or automatically. The 'Auto Spin' button is the blue button at the right of the control panel. The yellow 'Spin' button at the centre is for manual spinning.
The lower paying symbols in this game are playing card symbols from 10-Ace. Higher-paying symbols are the three pixies and the game logo. You can tell the pixies apart by their hair: there is one blonde, one brunette, and one with purple hair.
Special symbols include both Wild and Bonus symbols; you will recognise them when they appear. Note that Wild symbols can substitute for all others except the Bonus symbol. Also note that the Wild symbol only appears on the three centre reels during base play.
Special Features in Pixies of the Forest
Pixies and the Forest offers two special features for enhanced gameplay. The first is the very popular IGT feature known as Tumbling Reels. Here's how it works: every time a spin generates at least one winning combination, the symbols in that combination are evaluated, paid, and then taken away. The empty space left behind is filled with new symbols tumbling down from the top of the screen. Tumbling continues until no more winning combinations are achieved.
A Free Spins bonus game is the second special feature. It is triggered by landing three or more Bonus symbols a single payline. The bonus round begins by offering you a special group of symbols, one of which you will choose to determine the number free spins you will play with. Then you begin spinning with a reel set that includes an extra wild symbol on reel 1.
Now that you know all about the Pixies of the Forest, it is time for trekking. Enjoy.
