Our Verdict:

Hansel and Gretel Treasure Trail is the latest fairytale themed slot game, and is raised the bar in terms of gameplay.  The game is set out on the face of it as a five-reel slot, however, reels three, four and five will split and become two sets of three reels.  This turns the game into an eight-reel game, which is pretty cool.  The game is also very creative in terms of design, and the background featuring the forest, gingerbread house and the path is very creative. The free spins and progressive jackpot are also two great additions which can lead to great payouts.

Wild Symbol:

Hansel and Gretel Treasure Trail has the very welcome addition of a wild symbol.  On the game, the wild symbol is the gingerbread house symbol, and this symbol is going to help create more winning combinations for players.  It can do this by substituting for symbols on the reels when the gingerbread house symbol lands in place of symbol needed in combination. The gingerbread house will not substitute for the bonus path symbol but will substitute for all other symbols.

Stacked Symbol:

On this slot game the reel layout lends itself to stacked symbols.  The symbols which can be stacked are all the higher value theme symbols, such as Hansel, Gretel and the witch.  These symbols can be stacked up to six rows high on reels one and two and three high on reels three to eight.

Free Spins:

The main bonus feature is the free spins bonus.  To trigger this feature, players must land three or more of the bonus path symbol.  Players can land up to eight symbols to trigger the spins.  Depending on the number of symbols triggering the spins players will win 8, 12, 16, 20, 30 or 50 free spins. There is a 2x multiplier during the feature and it can be re-triggered by landing three or more of the path symbols.

Progressive Jackpot:

A lucrative prize can be won if the progressive jackpot is triggered. This can be triggered at any time during the game completely at random.  Players will then select drawers and will try to match three, which will win them one of the progressive jackpots.  There is a silver, gold, ruby and platinum jackpot, and the value of each jackpot is shown to the left of the reels.
