Fairytales are often developers' inspiration in the creation of their slots. NetEnt has a Riding Hood inspired slot called Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood, but there are many others you could also explore. However, Beauty and the Beast is one of those stories that remain in our hearts until we die. It is a powerful one, which tells you how cruel life can be if love, patience and acceptance are not present in it.
Yggdrasil introduces you to Beauty and the Beast by walking you through the dark, scary-looking castle where the Beast lives. The reels are set against the castle’s wall. You will soon meet the Butler, the Maid, the Chef, the Prince, and Bella as the most important symbols, as well as the enchanted, Magic Rose. You will see six different coloured gems for the lowest-paying symbols.
One of the Servants will appear at random each spin during the base game of Beauty and the Beast and do something in your favour. The Butler will nudge one reel down or up one position at a time to give you the best possible winning combo. The Chef will synchronize the three middle reels. The Maid will place 2, 3 or 4 Wilds in random positions on the reel.
Three or more Magic Rose symbols will trigger 10 Free Spins. If you trigger the Free Spins mode with 4 Magic Roses, you will additionally get 1,000 coins, if you trigger them with 5, you’ll get 5,000 coins. There is a Mirror Wild symbol in Beauty and the Beast, as well, which substitutes for all symbols except for the Magic Rose symbol.
During the Free Spins, you get the chance to choose one Servant to help you out, but once you’ve had all three of them help you, you cannot retrigger Free Spins bonus game.
Another bonus feature you get in Beauty and the Beast is the Golden Bet. You can deactivate and activate it as it suits you, but know that this Golden Bet will activate extra features for you. The Boost costs 5 coins and during the Free Spins, it will give you 2 features instead of a one. The Nudge costs 15 coins, and every time a Magic Rose lands just outside the game area, it nudges it in to give you Free Spins. The Boost & Nudge costs 30 coins but will give you the best possible winning opportunities in Beauty and the Beast.
Beauty and the Beast offers 20 fixed paylines. You can determine your bet by selecting the coin value and multiplying it with the number of paylines. The lowest coin value is 0.01 credit, so your minimum bet is $0.20. However, the coin value can go up to 5 credits which for 20 paylines make the maximum bet 100 credits.
The Beauty and the Beast symbols are the highest-paying ones, giving you 250 coins for a 5-of-a-kind winning combo. However, with all the help you can get from the Servants and the Magic Rose, you can get to a maximum payout potential of 100,000 credits for real money bets in Beauty and the Beast. Yggdrasil has set the RTP for this big win video slot from 96.3% to 97.1%, depending on the decisions you make regarding your Free Spins selection and bets.
