Fairy Queen Slot Review
The Fairy Queen slot is possibly one of the most overlooked Novomatic slots
when it comes to land-based play. I have come across it on several Gaminator machines at several casinos yet I never see anyone playing it - they always seem to be transfixed by games like Book Of Ra
, Sizzling Hot Deluxe
or Lucky Ladys Charm
. Which is a shame as Fairy Queen is a good slot.
There is possibly an element of confusion between the land based version and the online version. What you see here in the online version is called "Fairy Queen" but it is really the "Fairy Queen II" that you might have seen in land casinos. Quite why Novomatic re-dubbed it I'm not sure but they did.
So in the online version you get the same feature as in Fairy Queen II - 10 free spins where every spin is a guaranteed win. To be honest, and possibly why this slot perhpas doesn't have as wide an audience as it should, a lot of the guaranteed wins are 2 symbol wins which can be frustrating and although I have played this game a lot, I can't ever remeber seeing a 5-symbol win in the free spin feature.
OK, so it's a high variance (ie: very volatile!) slot like most Novomatic games but even then, it is a game that Novomatic perhaps haven't quite managed to get the balance between winning and entertainment quite right on.
It's a shame in a way: like Indian Spirit
and the Katana slot
, Fairy Queen is a very good game that just didn't quite capture the audience of other popular Novomatic games
but if you have never played it, at least give it a shot. I like it.
