Everyone’s looking for that fairytale ending when we play slots, so what better theme to hang your mad hat on than fairytale slots?

And there’s no better place to start your fairy tale than with these 10 magical slot machines.

What are fairytale or fairy story slots?

A fairy tale is a story full of magic, that stimulates the imagination, and usually has a happy ending for the hero. In this case, that’s you! Here’s how your average fairy tale goes. Hero goes on a quest. Hero meets characters along the way that help her overcome the final boss. Hero dances off into the sunset with the treasure or they .

Just like fairy tales, fairytale slots rely on the imagination of their creator, and game providers like Red Tiger have plenty of imagination. Most fairytale slots are based on a famous fairy tale or character like Sleeping Beauty or Red Riding Hood.

Some themed slots like Wish Upon A Jackpot involve characters from every fairytale! And like the fairy tales they’re based on, these slots are a quest that involve magic, villains, challenges and hopefully, some gold at the end of the rainbow.

There’s obviously no copywrite for centuries-old fairy tales, so you’ll get to meet classic characters like Cinderella, Jack, Puss in Boots, the Mad Hatter, the Big Bad Wolf when you play fair tale slots online.

Most fairy tales are centuries old, so that’s where the parallels with online slots end. But some of these popular fairy tale slots have been around for a lifetime too (in online gaming terms), and they will never lose their charm.

Top 10 Fairytale Slots

1. Wish Upon A Jackpot

Wish Upon A Jackpot

If there’s a game provider that knows how to bring magic into an online slot, it’s Blueprint Gaming. Wish Upon A Jackpot is the ultimate fairytale slot, with a cast of characters from different stories plus 9 bonus features.

As with all of Blueprint’s slots, the features are the reel heroes of the story, and here we have 5 bonuses with different reel modifiers that can be triggered by the fairy godmother, plus another 4 bonuses including 3 Little Pigs Free Spins, a Jack and the Beanstalk prize trail and a Rumpelstiltskin’s Deal Maker Bonus.

Wish Upon A Jackpot is the Peter Pan of the slots world. It was released way back in 2013 but it never seems to age. You can tell when a slot is a big hit, because a Megaways version comes along, and then Wish Upon A Leprechaun, and then Wish Upon A Leprechaun Megaways, and then Wish Upon A Jackpot!

2. Puss’n Boots

Puss’n Boots

Puss In Boots was a 16th century fable about a wily fairy, disguised as a cat, who helped his owner make his fortune. Puss was reinvented as a character in Shrek before getting a film of his own voiced by Antonio Banderas. Red Tiger’s version is one of their earliest fairytale slots and though it may lack the same star power of the movies, it has 4 special reel modifier bonuses including Mega Reels with just high paying symbols, plus a Free Spins feature that always uses one of the reel modifiers.

With features this good, this slot will have you purring. You’ll be the cat that the cream. You could get the a fairy tail ending. Are you feline lucky? And, we’re done.

3. Jack and the Beanstalk

Jack and the Beanstalk

Jack and the Beanstalk is an 18th century tale of a boy who swaps his cow for some magic beans, grows a beanstalk into the clouds, reclaims treasure from a giant and chops the beanstalk down so the giant falls to his death. What a kindly boy!

NetEnt’s Jack and the Beanstalk uses many of the items from the story to create a slightly magical and very rural slot that, like most online slots, comes alive in the bonus rounds. Every wild triggers a respin during which any wilds become walking wilds, and all wins are tripled. Other features stay true to the story with stacked wild golden hen symbols and expanding wild golden harps.

4. Big Bad Wolf

Big Bad Wolf

Quickspin’s Big Bad Wolf slot is based on the Three Little Pigs fairy tale, and uses the house of straw as its location for the game. The symbol drop animation is hypnotic, more so thanks to a cascading reels mechanic they call ‘Swooping Reels’.

The Pigs Turn Wild feature is one you’ll see most often, but the Blowing Down The House bonus is the most fun. If we’re judging fairy tale slots by how well they use the source material, this slot is a contender for sure. If you like this one, you’ll be as happy as a pig in muck when you try Quickspin’s Bid Bad Wold Megaways and Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special.

5. Megaways Jack

Megaways Jack

Iron Dog Studio’s own take on Jack and the Beanstalk has a couple more paylines than NetEnt’s slot (up to 117,649 to be very precise), and a slightly different style, as you can see from the symbols. The game revolves around the beanstalk on the right and the golden harp on the left.

Climb the leaves of the beanstalk with each cascading win to trigger the Free Spins feature. The higher you climb, the more spins and multipliers you get. As for the harp, a random twang will award one of four bonuses including reel modifiers and extra beanstalk progression.

6. Book of Oz

Book of Oz

Games Global’s Oz slots series kicked off in 2018 with Book of Oz and was followed by Sisters of Oz and Legacy of Oz. While not exactly a fairy tale, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a children’s book written in 1900 that has been made into musicals, movies and many online slots. Games Global’s Triple Edge Studios went for a more grown up vibe with their first ‘Oz slot, which has an usual Respin feature, a Free Spins bonus with expanding symbols, and a healthy 96.31% RTP.

7. Wild Hatter

Wild Hatter

Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland is another children’s book written over a century ago that has inspired many online slots and even a Live Casino game show. The Wild Hatter slot is a 2020 release from Red Tiger, with a bizarre 3,333x max win.

Beautifully crafted like all of their slots, The Wild Hatter is a 30-line high variance slot with detailed symbols and a living background. It’s both magical, surreal and disturbing (check out the cat and Mad Hatter symbols), and with features like wilds which always trigger a respin with locked symbols and multipliers, big wins are certainly not a fantasy.

8. Wonderland Wilds

Wonderland Wilds

The Wild Hatter was a bit short on characters from the classic novel, but Stakelogic have made use of the White Rabbit, Mad Hatter, Queen of Hearts and Alice herself as high paying symbols in this 2021 title.

Otherwise, things look fairly similar until you go through the looking glass into a Free Spins feature we have never seen before. Depending on how many scatters you spin to trigger the Free Spins, you’ll get between 3 and 5 random picks from 18 different reel modifier bonuses that will be in play during your Free spins. These include extra spins, multipliers, stacked symbols, guaranteed wilds and sticky wilds. In the endless quest for a slot that’s a bit different, Wonderland Wilds is a winner!

9. Pixies of the Forest

Pixies of the Forest

Pixies are a staple of many a good fairy story and with its folksy design, 99 lines and classic feel, IGT’s Pixies of the Forest series has certainly sprinkled plenty of pixie dust since it was launched in 2012. It was one of the earliest slot to use the avalanche or cascading reels feature (or tumbling reels, as IGT calls it). The other key feature is the Free Spins bonus, which starts with a big reveal of the number of spins you’ll get. Although Pixies of the Forest is a low-medium variance slot, it reportedly has a max win of over 150,000x.

10. Cinderella’s Ball

Cinderella’s Ball

Red Tiger clearly love their fairytale online slots because Cinderella’s Ball is their third slot in our Top 10. This uncomplicated 20-line slot from 2017 has 6 features triggered by special symbols or the Dreamy Cinderella symbol, and each of which pays homage to elements of the original tale of Cinderella.

To go with a straight forward Free Spins feature, there’s a Ballroom Bonus picker game with 25x, 75x, 200x and 500x prizes, and with up to 12 picks, you could win up to 800x. There’s also a Slipper Trail which leaves a trail of wilds, a fairy godmother who replaces low paying symbols with high paying symbols, and a Clock Strike which nudges reels to the nearest win. Watch out for the Evil Stepmother, who blocks you from winning on the next spin!
