Every fairytale has its magical features, and this game is no different. As we said, the image of the beautiful Red Riding Hood is its first speciality. She provides the game’s wild symbol and as such, she substitutes for all other icons on the reels, except for the two scatter offerings. The wild can also give you huge pay outs as well. For example, if you manage to spin five of them on to a winning pay line, you have the chance to receive a maximum pay out of $100,000.
Scatter icons exist in two forms within Forest Tale. The first of these is the basket of goods that Red is taking to her grandmother. Scatters offer up pay outs wherever they show up on the reels, but this one can provide up to 60,000 coins whenever five come in to view. Not only that, but three or more of them can also trigger the forest house feature. But that’s not the only symbol which is able to activate this round.
The icon of the forest house is also a scatter icon and triggers the previously noted bonus game as well. This is done when three of the symbols show up in any location on reels three, four and five. Regardless of which way you trigger the Forest House Feature, this round sees you receive between seven and 20 freespins of the reels. Furthermore, you also get a multiplier of between times one and times five alongside.
As is quite commonplace in EGT’s range of games, the Forest Tale offering also has a gamble round. This comes into play at the end of any winning combination that you form in the base game. Once you select the option to gamble, you’ll see several face down playing cards. Your only job here is to guess whether the next card you turn over will be red or black. Guessing correctly will see you receive a double multiplier to your winnings. Unfortunately, an incorrect guess sees you lose them all.
Finally, another staple of this developer’s games is the ‘Jackpot Cards’ round. This can come into play at random while you’re spinning. It’s a four-level mystery jackpot round, and you can see the values on offer a the top of the reels. Each one has its own playing card suit representative. The clubs are the lowest level, diamonds are next in line. The hearts suit is the third level, while the spades provide the highest offering. Any of these levels can be won during the game, which sees you turn over cards from a set of 12. Matching three of the same suit will provide you with that corresponding jackpot!
