Pixies of the Forest
Pixies of the Forest Slot Machine
You might just recognize this game, even if the theme and graphics are new to you. IGT has taken their popular freefall symbols concept, and given it a brand new coat of paint. What happens is that when you hit a winning combination, the symbols explode – allowing new symbols to fall from above. This can create new wins, which in turn can lead to more explosions and hopefully even more wins. The same idea can be seen in action on several slots including Masques of San Marco and the Da Vinci Diamonds slot.
Pixies of the Forest has very nice graphics, with different woodland and fairy tale symbols. There are 3 different pixies, and a cheery forest backdrop. The sound effects are varied nicely. Music ebbs and flows, along with galloping horse noises and laughter. There is a bright ‘dringgg’ sound when you spin, and the symbols seem to fall into place rather than spin on reels in any traditional sense.
Other than the freefall symbols, the main attraction is a free spins bonus round. You have a simple pick-em and then a different backdrop to the reels. The more lively music for the bonus jolts you out of the relaxed play from the main game while you rack up some wins.
