Pokies that promise that fairy tale ending
Ever wondered why fairy tales are so popular? Perhaps it is the nostalgia of being a child? Or could it ne the traditional happy ending that we all too often yearn for? Whatever it is, pokies seem to have carried through the fairy tale themes into adulthood, keeping us young at heart and hopeful. Pokie Place not only has an enormous list of pokies but they also have a generous selection of fairy tale games to offer maximum entertainment.
A huff and a puff and a…
Big Bad Wolf from Quickspin is a fun rendition of the 3 little pigs’ story, cleverly taking the player through the well-known tale as the Big Bad Wolf blows down the little artisan houses one at a time. This is in fact Pokie Place’s pokie with the highest return to player which sits at a little over 97%. Big Bad Wolf Christmas is based on all the same game play with the same 3 level feature, high RTP plus an extra dose of Christmas cheer.
The bad guy steals the show
The popular game maker, iSoftbet included Queen of Wonderland Megaways in their twisted tales series. This time the protagonist is not Alice, but instead the Queen of Hearts, the ‘bad guy’ we all secretly loved. The entertainment factor of this high variance game is top notch, with a higher than average hit rate and a great payout rate of 96%.
For those who prefer the original version, Alice Adventure, developed by the same game makers, features all the characters we know and love including the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat and of course the White Rabbit. Based on a slightly more traditional 3×5 grid, this pokie offers 30 paylines, a multiplier of up to 5 times and a bonus round awarding as many as 15 free spins.
Wishes that do come true
Aladdin and his lamp are always very popular themes for pokies. Not to mention the countless genies that steal the show now and again. In this 5 reel, 50 payline game from the masterminds at iGTech, Aladdin offers a 50 payline structure plus 50 free spins in the bonus round with all wins multiplied by 2.
Arabian Wishes puts the genie in centre stage and offers three fun features including a wild carpet that flies around the reels giving each symbol a cash value, all of which are tallied up and added to the balance at the bottom.
Steal a kiss
Who doesn’t remember the story of the frog prince who managed to steal a kiss from a spoiled princess? Quickspin has done a great job at rehashing the story making sure that YOU the player is on the winning end of this pokie. With 40 paylines and a free spins feature round, awarding 10 free spins plus additional multipliers, this frog is not the only one who is about to get lucky.
Our buddies over at Habanero Gaming seem to particularly enjoy adding a twist or some humour into their games. Based on the very same story, their version, Pucker up Prince is a fun 25 payline game filled with bonus elements where players can win up 12 free spins in the feature round.
Let the animals do the talking
Quickspin really seems to enjoy reviving fairy tales and it shows in another of their games, Tales of Dr Dolittle. Based on the movie of a vet who could speak to his patients, this 25 payline pokie has a traditional setup offering a free spins round as well as a respin feature.
The Pied Piper is another bedtime story, based in Hamelin almost 1,000 years ago, that Quickspin turned into an entertainment show stopper. 40 paylines on a traditional 5×3 grid plus 2 feature rounds will get the Pied Piper to play his little tune which could mean a win of almost $15,000!
Young at heart
For some, this is a favourite theme, awakening the child in us and at the same time, kick starting the jackpot hunting machine of adulthood. While many of the game makers have used these themes to recreate traditional bedtime stories, Quickspin seems to have more of a focus, offering not only great graphics but also fun features that offer the best in entertainment.
