How to Play Pixies of the Forest II Slots

To win a payout you need to land at least three matching symbols from left to right along a payline starting at the leftmost reel. There are four high value symbols, the game’s logo, a pixie with purple hair, a pixie with brown hair, and a pixie with blonde hair. The lower value symbols are the playing cards J through to A. There is a blue ‘Wild’ symbol, it can land on reels 2, 3 and 4 and it will substitute for all of the other symbols, except for the bonus symbols, to help and form winning combinations. There are two bonus symbols, a pixie and a ‘Jackpot’ symbol.
Pixies of the Forest II Slots Bonus Round
The slot features tumbling reels. This means that every time you land a win the symbols in the combination will disappear allowing more to tumble down from above and hopefully this will form another win. This way, there is the chance of landing numerous wins from one spin.
With each successive tumble, the Spirit Meter is increased by one. If you fill the meter with three or more spirits then it triggers the Feature Wilds spins. One of three Feature Wilds will be chosen for the next spin, you will receive one Feature Wild spin for the first three spirits in the meter, and an additional spin for every additional spirit.
- Wild Reels – One or two of the second, third and fourth reels are turned completely wild for the spin and the wilds on the reels will not disappear if they form part of a win.
- Random Wilds – Three wilds are randomly placed on the second, third and fourth reels. After the reels have tumbled and there are no new wins an extra set of wilds may be randomly placed on the reels, and this can happen up to two more times.
- Countdown Sticky wilds – Three wilds are randomly placed on the second, third and fourth reels and remain locked in place for three tumbles.
At the start of any Feature Wilds spin, the wilds can be turned into bonus symbols and trigger the Pixie Queen’s Free Spin Bonus. The spins can also be triggered when three of the bonus symbols land on reels one, two and three. You need to choose from one of the bonus symbols to reveal how many spins you have won. During the spins the wilds can land on reels 1, 2, 3 and 4 to help you land more wins. Better yet, during the free spins special multiplier symbols can land on the reels to increase your payouts.
During the free spins the Pixie Queen can also appear and award one of three random extra bonuses. The first two extras will help to trigger the Feature Wild spins. The Spirit Boost adds two spirits to the Spirit Meter. Symbols Elimination will see all occurrences of one to four symbols removed to allow for a new tumble, and increase the Spirit Meter by one spirit. The third bonus, the Extra Free Spins, sees the Pixie Queen awards an extra free spin up to a maximum of 180.
At the start of the Feature Wilds spins, it is also possible for the wilds to turn into Jackpot symbols and trigger the Pixie Progressive Picker. The feature is also triggered by landing the Jackpot symbol on reels three, four and five simultaneously. You are given the choice of sixteen pixies and need to pick them to reveal which of the three jackpots they represent. You win the corresponding jackpot once you find four matching pixies. The Bronze and Silver jackpots are fixed at 9x and 27x respectively, while the Gold jackpot is a progressive jackpot that can grow to be huge.
