As online slot fans we’re well used to journeying into a fantasy-themed land where mystical creatures do their bets to line up and make us a bit of cash; Acorn Pixie is one more to add to this genre, it’s developed by Bally Technologies and it comes with a free spins round and an optional extra bet.
Acorn Pixie is a five reel slot with three rows and thirty fixed paylines (in the base game); there’s a hazy, golden, forested feel to the backdrop and two pretty fairies watching over proceedings from either side of the reels.
All the symbols are related to the reels and include four fairies in various states of contemplative repose, colourful toadstools, ladybirds, dragonflies. purple boots and a couple of woodland plants.
The wild symbol is the kneeling fairy and she will replace all others to help form winning combos except for the floating fairy bonus icon.
This is triggered by landing three of the floating fairy bonus symbols anywhere on reels two, three and four; you’ll only receive seven free spins but this is on a different set of reels with six rows instead of four.
On the first spin the position at the bottom of reel three will become wild and remain that way for the rest of the spins; on subsequent spins any positions connected to that wild may become wild also, marked by an acorn.Those positions will gradually reveal a picture in the background.
It’s not possible to trigger any more spins as there are no bonus symbols during this round.
This can occur randomly in the base game and you wills see a 2×2 wild symbol added to the reels to help out with some wins.
Buy A Bonus
This is a symbol way to trigger the bonus by simply buying it; click the button in the top left hand corner and choose from 12, 8 or 6 free spins for £100, £40 or £20 respectively. The spins will then play out in the normal way and the game advises that the £100 option is the optimal choice.
Allowing the player to pay to enter the bonus round is an interesting, but rare, feature and it works well here – each time we tried it it paid out more than it cost but of course that won’t always happen. Aside from that Acorn Pixie is a good-looking slot with lots to enjoy and an RTP of 92.00% – 96.00% (base game to £100 bonus purchase).
