Pixies of the Forest Online Slots
Pixies of the Forest, a digital slots game from developer IGT, has the distinction of offering players 99 bet lines for a 33-coin wager. Pixies of the Forest displays 3 rows and 5 reels against a leafy forest backdrop, and the fact that the game uses only 7 icons in regular play, combined with the large number of pay lines and the Tumbling Reels feature, leads to more regular wins.
On every spin of Pixies of the Forest, the Tumbling Reels feature will dissolve any icons featured in wins, allowing other symbols to drop into place and perhaps create more winning lines on the spin. Only when a screen contains no winning combinations, will the next spin resume. The icons in Pixies of the Forest are rendered in fine detail and glowing colours, with all symbols transforming into impressive animations when featured in a winning combination. The music is ethereal and unobtrusive, blossoming into harp riffs to celebrate wins, intermingled from time to time with the laughter of the pixies.
Pixies of the Forest’s 7 Standard Icons
Pixies of the Forest uses the poker symbols Q, K and A as its low-value icons, with the potential to win from just 1 coin for 3 Qs, to 40 coins for 5 As. Three pretty Forest Pixies, with backdrops glowing in green, red and purple, are the medium-value icons, with prizes ranging from 5 coins for 3 Green Pixies to 1,000 coins for 5 Purple Pixies.
The Pixies of the Forest logo is the highest-scoring symbol in regular play, winning 20, 40 or 2,000 coins for 3, 4 or 5 of a kind. The Wild, a leafy wreath emblazoned with the word “Wild”, has no value in combinations with itself, but it will substitute for any symbols except the Bonus.
Free Spins Bonus Feature
The Pixies in the Forest Bonus symbol is also simple: the word “Bonus” in a similar leafy circle. If a player scores 3 Bonus icons on a pay line, the Free Spins Bonus is triggered. Players must choose from a selection of “Choose” icons to determine the number of free spins awarded. All winning combinations during this round must include at least 1 non-Wild symbol, and the Free Spins Bonus cannot be retriggered during the course of the free spins round. However, in normal play the Wild can only appear on Reels 2, 3 and 4.
In the Free Spins Bonus round, it is also possible for the Wild to appear on Reel 1. So it is possible to score 4 Wilds on one pay line, and as long as the final symbol on that line on Reel 5 is not the Bonus icon, the combination counts as 5 of a kind of whatever icon appears on the 5th Reel. Combined with the Tumbling Reels feature, the addition of an extra possible Wild during Free Spins Bonus rounds make this the section of Pixies of the Forest that has the highest winning potential.
