Playtech’s Forest Prince Video Slot Review

Take a trek to a virtual woodland in Forest Prince. This 6 reel, 50 payline video slot has been created by Playtech and comes with a cracking bonus round where you can win up to 200 free spins complete with sticky wilds. Play from between 10p and £500 per spin.

Head to a dense woodland

You won’t find any teddy bears having a picnic. What you will see is a dense woodland packed full of plants and trees. On the reels are heart, diamond, club and spade symbols as well as frogs, foxes, woodpeckers, owls and badgers. The fox is the best standard symbol. Land 6 of these in combination for a payout of 3.2 times your bet. The same awards are on offer from the stag’s antlers symbol which is the wild.

I like Big Bucks

There’s only 1 bonus round in Forest Prince. It can be a real cracker though. To trigger the Big Bucks Free Games feature, you’ll need to land 5 or more of the stag scatter on adjacent reels, starting from reel 1. You’ll receive 5 free spins for 5 scatters. Each subsequent scatter adds another 5 free spins to that total. The maximum number of free spins is 100.

Sticky Wilds

You’ll notice that there are 2 types of scatters – 1 with a daytime background and 1 backed by a night scene. Any night backed scatters from the triggering spin turn into sticky wilds and remain locked in position for the duration of the round. Re-triggers are possible here too with up to 200 free spins up for grabs.

Stampede feature

On any base game spin, you could benefit from the Stampede feature. A herd of deer stampede across the screen, leaving plenty of extras scatters on the reels for the spin that follows. That makes it much more likely that you’ll trigger the Big Bucks Free Games feature.

Simple but playable

There’s nothing complicated about Forest Prince. The design and gameplay are simply done. This remains a playable video slot thanks to the Big Bucks Free Games feature which can award a large number of free spins. Combine that with a good fall of sticky wilds and Forest Prince should be a great video slot.

However, the low value payouts can lead to a top win of just 160 times your bet on each free spin – Playtech offer many video slots with much bigger top wins like Age of the Gods or Giant Grizzly.
