Beauty and the Beast Slot Review
Beauty and the Beast is an enchanting slot game by software provider Yggdrasil. It’s obviously based on one of the most popular fairytales and provides a very compelling atmosphere for players. From the soundtrack, to the graphics and even to the intro of the game – everything is very magical and very tasteful. We should also compliment the developers on the very high quality of the graphics here. The backdrop depicts the enchanted castle, where the Beast lives. It’s a kind of winter fairytale, if you like. The reels have a very elaborate frame of stained glass and gothic ornaments. As for the symbols, the lower value ones picture six differently shaped and colored jewels. Following them are the four higher value character symbols. Two of them feature Belle, whereas as the other two are the prince in his human and beastly form.
The setup in Beauty and the Beast is fairly traditional, with 5 reels and 3 rows. The slot offers 20 paylines and you will not be able to change their number. As for your wager amounts, you will have a comfortable range of between 20p per spin and £100 per spin. Players will also be happy to know that this slot offers a high RTP of 97.1%.
Special Features in Beauty and the Beast slot machine
Beauty and the Beast has a Wild symbol, which will help you increase your winning chances by replacing any of the other symbols on the reels. However, the only symbol that it cannot replace is the Rose symbol, which is the game’s Scatter.
The Scatter symbol is responsible for triggering this slot’s main attraction – the freespins feature. In order to activate the feature, you will need to land at least 3 Scatters during a spin. 3 Scatter symbols will grant you a total of 10 freespins, just as 4 and 5 Scatters will. However, in the case of the latter two, you will also receive 1,000 and 5,000 coins, respectively. Furthermore, you are also able to retrigger the feature for an additional 10 freespins.
But that’s not all. Before you enter the bonus round, you will need to choose one of three servants to help you. The Butler will nudge a reel either up or down, to help you gain a more favorable combination. If you choose the Chef, he will synchronize the three middle reels. And lastly, the Maid will randomly place 2 to 4 Wilds anywhere on the reels. Any of these servants can also randomly appear during the base game, which makes for another pleasant treat.
Last but not least, you can also benefit from the Golden Bet feature. You can activate it any point in the game, so as to gain extra features. For example, choose the Boost feature, so as to enter the freespins with two servants, instead of one. The Nudge feature will ensure wins during the freespins more often, whereas the Nudge and Boost feature will offer a combination of the above two.
Beauty and the Beast is a fantastic, classy slot game, with much to offer. The high RTP and diverse bonus features make it especially appealing. We would lable it as a medium to low variance slot machine, but it depends on if you activate the “Golden Bet” or not. As with all games from Yggdrasil, the game play is really smooth and the graphics are very well made.
