Our Verdict:

Hansel and Gretel Treasure Trail is a very playable slot game by 2by2 Gaming.  The slot comes with some nice graphics, including the background showing the path in the forest leading to the gingerbread house.  The reel design is also very unusual and has allowed the game to have stacked symbols on the reels.  As you spin, there is a slightly ominous soundtrack which adds to the adventure and works nicely with the gameplay.   On Hansel and Gretel Treasure Trail there is also two pretty good additions, a free spins round, which can award up to fifty free spins, and a progressive jackpot where astonishing prizes can be won.

Wild Symbol:

Every slot game which has the addition of a wild symbol makes for exciting gameplay.  This is because the wild symbol, in this case, the gingerbread house, is able to complete winning combinations of other symbols.  It can do this by substituting for all other symbols on the game, except the path bonus symbol, in order to complete the combinations.  It can substitute, and therefore complete combinations involving the playing card symbols of 10 – A.  It also can complete combinations involving the theme symbols of Hansel, Gretel, the wicked witch, a bag of jewellery, an axe and a swan.

Stacked Symbols:

On Hansel and Gretel Treasure Trail the unique reel structure allows for stacked symbols.  The higher value theme symbols can be stacked up to six rows high on reels 1 and 2, and three rows high on the remaining reels.

Free Spins:

The main bonus feature on Hansel and Gretel Treasure Trail is the free spins bonus.  To trigger this feature, players will need to land three, four, five, six, seven or even eight of the bonus path symbol on a single spin.  Once triggered players will earn a minimum of eight free spins if three symbols triggered the bonus, and additional four for every additional path up to six paths.  For seven paths it jumps ten to thirty free spins, and for the full house of eight path symbols, it is a massive fifty free spins. During the spins, there is a 2x multiplier doubling any wins.

Progressive Jackpot:

At any random time, the progressive jackpot game can be triggered. This game is a picking game where players will select drawers and must match three to win one of the prizes on offer.  The amounts for each prize, Diamond, Ruby, Gold, and Silver, are shown to the left of the reels.
