Goldwyn’s Fairies is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot from Microgaming that comes with superb, HD visuals and a couple of cracking extras. Look out for re-spins and free spins with special returning wilds. Playable on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, stakes start at 10p, rising to £250 per spin.

The bar is getting higher when it comes to design standards in video slots – Goldwyn’s Fairies is a case in point. This magical forest looks and sounds delightful. You’ll see lower value gemstones spinning around the reels alongside fairies who represent spring, summer, autumn and winter. There’s also a standard wild. This substitutes for all the standard symbols and offers awards of up to 25 times your stake per payline. There aren’t any scatters on offer here but there are a pair of extra wilds, both of which can deliver a feature round.

Re-Spin feature – land the re-spin wild on reel 3 and you’ll trigger the re-spins with returning wilds. The re-spins continue until there’s a spin without a wild or re-spin wild. Every position where a wild or re-spin wild lands is circled. On the last returning re-spin, wild symbols returned to the circled position. A new payout is made with all of the wilds in place.

Free Spins feature – this round is triggered by landing the free spins wild on the odd numbered reels on the same spin. Here you’ll receive 9 free spins, plus 1 returning wild free spin. A similar process to the returning wild re-spins then follows with each position where a wild lands being circled.

All the wilds return to their circle position on the final returning wild spin and the payout is made. Needless to say, landing a good haul of wilds can lead to some fine results on that final free spin.

The magical theme in Goldwyn’s Fairies may have a somewhat gentle feel. It’s a feistier video slot than you might expect though and the variance is in the medium range – it can pay up to 633 times your stake on each spin.

The design here is excellent, combining silky smooth animations, nicely drawn characters and a piano-heavy backing track. It comes together rather nicely – as do the features which offer a nice mix of regular hits and potentially decent payouts.
