Following NetEnt’s release of its Red Riding Hood and Hansel And Gretel slots in the Swedish studio’s Fairytale legends slots series, gamers were eager to find out and happy to speculate on which fairytale would provide the inspiration for the next instalment. Enter Mirror Mirror, a mobile slot game that, no doubt for legal reasons, refrains from labeling itself anything to do with Snow White. The Fairy Godmother who introduces us to the other slots in the series returns as our chaperon here, waving her wand to give us a run down of the various and multiple bonus features on offer.
As with the other games in the Fairytale legends series, a 3D sprite accompanies our game play. Snow White (for it must be her!) eyes the reels with enthusiasm as they spin, as eager as we are to score winning combinations. She is also one of our top-paying game symbols, along with the Queen and the Mirror Mirror game logo. A Gem and Lantern pay out medium values while 9s through Aces offer up lower payouts. All game symbols can appear stacked, too.
The absence of a Wild feature means we need something extra to look forward to, and we have it in the shape of the Fairy godmother. She delivers three random bonus features with a flick of her glittering wand.
The Mirror Re-Spin feature activates when we land a Mirror symbol on reel 3 during the base game. The Mirror reveals a medium-paying symbol, continuing to spin the reels with all matching symbols held in place until no more appear.
The game’s main dedicated bonus round triggers when we land three Box Scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5. We now choose a box, behind which is hiding one of three bonus features.
As usual, NetEnt’s artwork and game design in its Mirror Mirror mobile slot game is sumptuous. The floating specks of magical dust that were present in the first two releases return, as does the always welcome gift-bestowing Fairy Godmother. There is enough to link the slots in the series thematically and yet plenty to set them apart. The sheer scope of bonus features is spellbinding, though the real praise must go to the execution of the features themselves. They are as creatively mesmerising as they are lucrative, and are surely the key to our success in this particular mobile slots fairytale.
