Fairy games are rather popular in the online slots circuit. Goldwyn’s Fairies was developed by ‘Just for the Win’, but are brought to us via the Microgaming online casino platform. The 5 reel, 20 fixed payline reels hold much enchantment in store with great base game wins, as well as a variety of WILD symbol fun, free spins, and re-spins to boot.

Review of Goldwyn's Fairies

Set on a golden frame beneath a thick tree canopy, we join the sprites and fairies on their adventures of magical enchantment. The luck produced from being privy to their magic may rub off on you and bring you great wins along the way.

This fantasy themed cartoon styled slot is beautifully rendered with pretty graphics, alluring sound effects and musical interludes. Based on the climatic seasons, you can be assured that this slot will make you feel all four moods of the year before you are done. From hot flashes of joy, to cold chills of regret, no matter the outcome, one thing I can guarantee is that you will have fun along the way.

The thematic symbols bring our story to life. The high paying symbols involve four fairy sisters, each representative of one of the four seasons of the year, i.e. summer, winter, fall/autumn, and spring. Smaller paying icons include enchanting gems of various shapes and colours, from orange to purple to green and the red, each partners with a specific fairy and her season.

There are 3 different WILD symbols in this adventure, including:

  • Standard Wild – This one substitutes for all symbols except the other WILDS to produce combination wins.
  • Triggering Wild – This is the game logo, and is a catalyst for triggering the free spins bonus feature round, when found in threes.
  • Respin Wild – Represented by the Queen of the Fairies, she invokes multiple respins during base game play and brings multitudes of increase to your bankroll.

Gameplay is quite straight forward, and the mechanical features offer a full array of options. These can all be found on the right-hand panel, aside the reels. These include:

  • Manual Spin – The big full circle looking arrow spins the reels once. Make use of this if you want to remain in control of the pace of each spin.
  • Auto-play – Two half circle arrows with a “play” symbol in between. You can set how many times the machine should automatically spin for you. This is very handy if you need to leave the screen for a while to attend to something else in your home and want gameplay to carry on without you.
  • Bet Adjuster – This looks like a casino chip with an arrow pointing up and down. Click on the icon and adjust your bet up and down to suit your pocket.
  • Max Bet – This is an icon with a ‘$’ sign on it. Here you can play max bet at the click of a button so that you do not have to permanently set the stake that high.
  • All other settings and options can be found by clicking on the ‘…’ symbol. Other settings can include things like volume control, switching off music, the spin speed etc.

Special Features

When scouting games and reading reviews, the first place that I look when choosing a game to play, is the ‘Special Features’ list. And by chatting to fellow gamers, I am not alone in this. Fortunately, this game has 3 noteworthy special features worth mentioning:

Returning Wild

When a re-spin WILD or Free Spin WILD appears to trigger a feature (or join a feature), that position is marked with a ‘Returning Wild’ until the last spin of either feature. On the final spin, the marked positions will turn wild to boost the final win and increase the chance of multiple winning combinations.

During gameplay, if another WILD lands on the ‘returning wild’ marker, another position on the reels will be randomly chosen as a ‘returning wild’ instead.

Respin Wild Feature

Should you land the queen fairy symbol on the middle reel, she will re-spin the reels, with a good chance of appearing again in subsequent spins, marking ‘returning wilds’ each time she appears. The moment she stops appearing, the reels will spin one last time with all marked ‘returning wilds’ becoming true wilds. This will boost the chance of huge combo wins.

Free Spin Bonus Round

Free spins are always a treat, especially when packed with a lot of ‘enchanting’ punch. Should you roll 3 game logo WILDS on reels 1, 3, and 5 you will trigger 9 free spins, with a tenth spin activated for the ‘returning wild’ feature. Unfortunately, you are not able to re-trigger this round.

Payouts and Maximum Winnings

This game has a return to player percentage (RTP%) of around 96%, leaving the house with an edge of about 4%. Combine this with the medium variance nature of this machine and you can expect some decent wins. The frequency of the wins may be a little slower than some machines, but they offer great bang for your buck.

Some of the higher payouts are as follows:

  • Maximum Win is 158,250 coins
  • 5x Wilds will win you a jackpot of 25x
  • 5x High symbol (summer fairy) will see you win 12,5x
  • Average Big wins in base game = 10x – 20x
  • Free Spins can pay out 200x and more

For the best wins, you need to hold out for the free spins and respins rounds, though the base game need not leave you empty handed and can boost your bankroll quite sufficiently too.

Final Verdict

If it’s a colourful collaboration of cute, cartoony graphics and powerful, punchy bonus features you are after, then this game is for you. It produces noteworthy winnings that will change the shape of your bankroll considerably.

With the medium volatility of the game, you are ensured moments of splendour, and then spates of nothingness, but patience and keen experience in juggling your wager could prove fruitful for you in this offering.

Embark upon a mystic fantasy adventure by spinning with Microgaming right now! For more enchantment along a similar vein, be sure to try Microgaming’s Mystique Grove slot and IGT’s Pixies of the Forest, which both render Fairy filled fun on the reels.
