Pixies of the Forest is easily one of the most liked IGT slots ever developed. It can be found at many leading casinos, and it is so popular than many players are surprised that a sequel has taken as long as it has to be released.
The latest magical game to be released by IGT at casinos is such a sequel. Pixies of the Forest II (as the game is called) pops into gaming portals this week, and it is far grander, far cheaper and far richer than players could have ever imagined.
A Magical Reinvention of a Much-Loved Slot
Pixies of the Forest II reinvents the gameplay which made the original so popular. There is always a risk that by changing a game too much, the developers may kill everything that players liked about the original. That hasn’t happened with this sequel.
The new game features 5 reels and 99 paylines, with bets costing as little as 33p a game, and no more than £99 a turn. On top of that, the slot contains progressive jackpot cash prizes, paid out when players land 3 of the jackpot symbols on the third, fourth and fifth reels of the base game.
Some of Pixies’ Perks
There’s no shortage of top features in the Pixies of the Forest II slot. The game features the Tumbling Reels engine, which sees winning icons removed and replaced by new ones. Every successive re-spin win will ramp up a Spirit Meter, and that can dish out wild reels, random wilds, or sticky wilds. A randomly triggered bonus can also turn icons into bonus symbols, giving players a better chance of triggering the main bonus feature.
That feature is a free spin bonus. This Pixie Queen Bonus can also be triggered when bonus icons appear on the first, second and third reels. Clicking on one of the symbols will dish out a random number of spins. Wild symbols (which only appeared on the first, second and third reels in the base game) now appear on the fourth reels, too. Moreover, whenever a pixie appears in a win, those prizes are doubled. Pixies only pop up on the first reel. Lastly, another randomly triggered feature in the free spin bonus can see some of the Spirit Meter triggered goodies dished out.
IGT’s Epic New Slot Debuts This Week
The casino software providers have surely hit gold with this sequel. The original game was much-loved, but Pixies of the Forest II is seemingly better in every way. It debuts at all top IGT casinos at the end of February.
