Our quick take

“Play a few spins and it’s easy to see why this game is one of IGT’s most successful slots ever”

Is Pixies of the Forest a good fit for you?

Launched in 2012, this Pixies of the Forest slot game is an online adaption of Secrets of the Forest, one of the most successful IGT land-based slots ever. In this Pixies of the Forest slot review, I’ll give you the guided tour of its many special features plus the numbers that really matter.

The first thing to remember is that the Pixies of the Forest slot machine is fairly low variance, so it’s more about the journey than reaching a life-changing destination. That doesn’t mean there aren’t decent wins to be had, and you’ll scoop 2000 coins if you land 5 Pixies of the Forest symbols.

But that’s only the half of the story, as the Tumbling Reels feature and Free Spins features can produce sequences of wins that add up to much bigger slice of pie.

The graphics and gameplay may not look much in 2023, but in 2012, they were among some of the best design out there. IGT left nothing to chance when it came to the Pixies of the Forest slots game theme, going all out for the Midsummer Night’s Dream style enchanted world inhabited by pixies, filled with magic and treasure.

Think playful characters, pixie dust, sparkly magic and a little dash of Celtic mysticism. The game is set in a bright, cheerful woodland wonderland where pixies bestow magical gifts (they don’t like to call it cold, hard cash) on those who venture in.

Game features

Tumbling Reels

Much like the cascading reels or Avalanche feature found with slots like Gonzo s Quest, Tumbling Reels destroy each symbol in a winning combination so that the symbols above them can tumble down, with more wins during the same spin. Tumbles continue until no more winning combos can be made.


Wild symbols can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4, and when they do, they substitute for all symbols except the Bonus scatter.

Free Spins Bonus

Land 3 bonus symbols on reels 1, 2 and 3 (and on a winning payline too) and you’ll be awarded some Free Spins.

Whether it’s a wheel or some other method, it’s always fun to be awarded a random number of Free Spins, and here we have a picker mini game. Pick a bonus symbol and you’ll reveal how many Free Spins you’re getting from 5 up to 11.

The Free Spins themselves happen on super-rich reels packed with more Wilds, including Wilds that can now appear on reel 1.

My verdict

What works in a casino doesn’t always work online but IGT have done their superstar game proud. With some real innovation, a fairy tale feature set and an ever-young theme, Pixies of the Forest is a dream slot that could only be improved by the addition of, let’s say, jackpots?

What is the Pixies of the Forest slot RTP?

The Pixies of the Forest slot RTP is around 93%, so effectively a 7% house edge. Now despite an awesome combination of features behind that Pixies of the Forest RTP figure, that number is no world beater.

RTPs in games like Starburst and Ted run in the 96% ballpark these days. But 93% is not too far off and the bonus features more than make up for the modest edge, and don’t forget, you get all that real-time cashback OJO gives you on every spin. Real cash, yours to use. No small print.

With little to distract you from the action on the vibrant reels and standout Spin button, Pixies of the Forest mobile slot keeps you entertained longer than most phone casino games.

What symbols are used in Pixies of the Forest UK slot game?

Pixies of the Forest online slot has just 7 base game symbols, of which, unusually, there are just 3 low value playing card symbols; Ace, King and Queen.

They employ the kind of sweet, ornate design you might find in a Disney movie but make no mistake, this magical slot is for grown-ups only. The next 3 symbols are 3 different pixie characters, with the game’s logo taking top spot as the most valuable symbol.

The Free Spins Bonus is central to this slot’s gameplay so you best be on the lookout for the Bonus scatter, a ruby gemstone surrounded by leaves and handily inscribed with the word Bonus. The mystic purple Wild symbol is also unmistakable.

How does betting work in the Pixies of the Forest online slot?

Once you’ve funded your account and fired up Pixies of the Forest slot online, it’s time to choose a bet size. Pixies of the Forest has a fixed 33-coin bet, though your stake per coin is applied to all 99 paylines.

You can bet just 1p per coin for a 33p total bet, or almost anything up to £30 per coin, which makes for a somewhat punchy £990 bet per spin.

Don’t see many of those! Whatever you choose to bet, make sure you can afford. Sensible staking is a huge part of responsible gaming, and only by managing your gaming can it be fun.

How does IGT’s Connected Lines work?

This is IGT’s way of givin’ you more for less, and it certainly gives you a ton of ways to win. In most traditional slots, you get 1 payline per coin. Simple.

The Pixies of the Forest game gives you 3 paylines for every coin bet. Unlike other high-payline slots whose paylines are a confusing tangle of routes from the first reel to the last, the Connecting Lines of Pixies of the Forest slot are based on a simple concept; winning combinations can be made using symbols that connect to the same row, 1 line above or 1 line below.
