A magical forest is the setting for Elven Princess, a 5 reel, 40 payline, mystical themed video slot powered by Novomatic. This extremely volatile game comes with a bonus feature that awards up to 30 free spins with all payouts trebled as well as offering a shot at a megabucks win via the progressive jackpot. Play from between 40p and £40 per spin.

The cartoon style imagery on show in Elven Princess has a fantasy feel – joining the lower value A to 9 playing cards are leaves, toadstools, an eagle and a fox. The most lucrative of the standard symbols is the white unicorn – land 5 of these on a payline for a payout of 10 times your total stake.

The pointy eared Elven Princess is even more rewarding, offering payouts of 50 times your stake if you land 5 on a payline – she is also the game’s wild, replacing all other symbols apart from the scatter.

The crystal ball is the that scatter – landing 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels will get you a payout of 1, 10 or 100 times your total stake. You’ll also trigger the Free Games feature and be awarded 15 free spins. All payouts during the feature are boosted by a 3x multiplier and tripled. You can re-trigger more free spins by hitting 3 or more scatters giving you up to 30 free spins.

Elven Princess also comes with a progressive jackpot element – this is triggered by filling the reels with 20 Elven Princess wild symbols on the same spin. Do this in the base game to win the standard jackpot. Manage it in the free spins round and you’ll pocket the even larger Bonus Feature Jackpot. You can win the jackpot playing at any stakes. A proportionate payout is made if you’re playing lower than the maximum.

The imagery may have a cutesy feel but Elven Princess is a volatile slot so expect plenty of lean spells. You can of course win big on a single spin. This isn’t a video slot for the faint of heart. If you have deep enough pockets to cope with the big swings, there’s enjoyment to be had in Elven Princess.

If you’re after simple, volatile action with a fantasy theme, then Elven Princess ticks all those boxes. I also recommend you try Yggdrasil Gaming’s Double Dragons and Microgaming’s Avalon II.
