Rival Gaming announces a brand new 5 reel, twenty payline on – line slot game, CANDY COTTAGE. Rival decided to focus on the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale in this game – which goes to show how astute this software developer is. Hansel and Gretel is one of the most beloved of all of Brothers Grimm’s stories so there’s instant recognition on a global scale.
In the game’s opening clip, Hansel and Gretel stroll through the forest till they come across the yummy – looking, yet oddly non life sustaining Candy Cottage, where they come face to face with the evil witch, a woman with an – er – very specific goal that does not include dieting.
The game symbols are flawlessly designed with the Hansel and Gretel / candy motif. Players will find bright and sharply drawn Bread Baskets, Ducks, Chocolates, Sweets, Candy, Jelly Beans and of course the smart, exercise – shunning Hansel and Gretel and that famished Witch. As well, let’s not forget this tale’s timeless set piece, the Furnace, that here in this online slot operates as this online slot’s expanding wild symbol.
Some other symbols include the Candy Cottage icon which triggers 10 free spins which a 3 times multiplier. As well, the Cage symbol triggers a bonus game in the event you land three or more. You will be whisked away to a second screen to find that the empty calorie – promoting witch with cannibalistic tendencies wants nothing more than to add a few pounds to Hansel midsection. She jubilantly tosses sweets high up in the air, and it is your task to maneuver Hansel in order that he gets as many of the pieces of candy in his mouth as possible. The sweets eaten by Hansel are eventually converted into bonus points.
One awesome factor that sets this game apart from others is due to its fantastic animation – the luscious bars of deep, rich chocolate gets bitten, jelly beans squirm and the furnace not only expands but also lights up like the Vegas Strip after dark. You can wager as much as ten coins per pay – line (two hundred coins maximum each spin), and coin range can be anywhere from one puny cent to a quarter. The highest payout of twenty five hundred coins can potentially convert to a very sweet $6250.
We really enjoyed all of the little features this game had to offer. It was one of the most fun games we have come across in a long time and the basic storyline of the game works very well to entertain the players. If you want to have a little fun you should really give it a try. It gets a big old thumbs up from us, for sure…
