Sequels can always raise a mix of expectation and anxiety amongst fans of a film. And so it is with slots too. Part of you feels the thrill of experiencing a continuation of the magic that drew you into the original with some fresh twists. Part of you fears that the sequel will be the proverbial pile of poo and taint your memory of the original forever. A feeling anyone who has ever sat through Speed 2: Cruise Control will well know. So news of IGT’s Pixies of the Forest II slot launching at Neon Jackpot created a nervous fizz in our office this week.
IF YOU GO DOWN TO THE WOODS TODAY…
The original Pixies of the Forest slot is a true legend in both the land-based and online slot world. Its fairytale theme and the cascade charms delivered by Tumbling Reels proved an irresistible combination, and still today it commands a huge, loyal following that keeps it as a permanent fixture in our list of Player Favourites. Messing with this recipe could have been sheer folly by IGT, but we’re happy to report that this sequel has the potential to carve out its own Pixie popularity.
IGT’s production team has wisely chosen to gently enhance the earlier game, making this sequel feel familiar from the first spin, yet with thrilling new ways to win elegantly woven into its fantasy, forest-folk fabric. There’s even a new Pixie in the Forest, the Pixie Queen, with royal powers for reel modification to court even more chain reactions out of the Tumbling Reels formula.
Not only has Pixies of the Forest II brought new, eye-catching ways to win to the original format. It also packs in a progressive jackpot punch for a knockout move. This adds the cherry to the top of a pretty much irresistible Pixie patisserie. So if you’re in the mood for experiencing a slot with plenty of fairy dust sprinkled on its reels we think you’ll know where to start looking on your next session with us.
