Developed by Quickspin, Fairy Gate is a five reel slot with three rows and up to twenty fixed paylines. The reels themselves turn on a delicate carved wooden framework that floats in front of a forested environment; on the right-hand side is a magical tree that awards one of the bonus features.
How to play Fairy Gate
Before players ask the fairies for some magical fairy dust to unlock the gate, they should adjust their game settings first.
Clicking on the "Total Bet" button, players can determine the coin's denomination range.
Hitting "Spin" will begin to set the reels in motions for players to start playing once their bet has been placed.
Pressing the "Autoplay" button will automatically spin the reels without interruption for a select number of times.
The four fairy characters represent the higher-value icons, and they are differentiated by colour – red, pink, green and blue; a decorative Jack, Queen, King and Ace represent the game's lower values.
The wild symbols are an ornate golden ‘Wild’, and it will replace all other symbols on the reels and help form winning combinations except for the delicate blue bonus icon.
Bonus Features of Fairy Gate
Fairy Wild Respins occurs randomly in the main game, and players will notice two additional reels appear where the tree is positioned on the screen's right-hand side; should any orbs appear on these two reels, players will be bestowed up to five free spins per orb, and as other wilds are placed on the reels.
Fairy Wild Free Spins are triggered by landing at least three of the blue bonus symbols anywhere in player's view for which they will receive ten free spins.
The two additional reels are active whilst the spins are underway, but here the orbs will not award any further free spins, only extra wild symbols. It’s not possible for players to trigger any more spins from within this round.
If it does gets triggered then two further reels will be activated containing Fairy Orb Symbols. Should players land one or more of the Fairy Orb Symbols land on the extra reel, players will be granted some Random Wilds and a respin. Random Wilds range from two to five per Fairy Orb.
Fairy Gate is clearly enchanting, but players should sadly expect not to trigger the Fairy Wild Free Spins feature too often – it takes a while to trigger this valuable feature. The key is to obtain the Fairy Orbs on the two additional reels that can give players up to five wilds each! Overall however, another superb offering from Quickspin
