Hansel & Gretel Candyhouse Review
Dare you nibble this witch’s house? I'm not sure exactly how the original premise went but this seems to be what Red Tiger Gaming are going for in their latest creation. Everything has a sweet sugary glaze and even the mushrooms look quite appealing. Time to take a trip down this saccharine-coated garden path and see what awaits.
Since when did Hansel have stubble? And why on Earth is Gretel about 16? There's something not quite right about this setup but I guess we’ll have to go with it for now. You can't argue with the quality of the graphics—even if the artistic integrity is a little questionable. There isn't much to speak of in the way of music except to say that a slightly eerie score appears each time you hit the spin button.
Making your way through the base game isn't as much fun as nibbling sweet treats from the side of a house, unfortunately. However, there is a chance that those siblings can work their magic and the rows might just line up in your favour. When this happens, you could be in for a big payout of maybe five-of-a-kind on each of the three rows. Obviously, the size of the payout depends on the symbol but with a few Wilds thrown in there, this could grow to produce something quite special.
Hope and pray for a big number of Scatter symbols when you finally reach the Free Spins Bonus as this will have a large and profound effect on your bankroll. If you can grab 5 of them to trigger the game, then those Sibling Reels will, once again, produce the goods. And the best thing is that you won't have to pay for any of those spins!
You could be looking at a fairly modest 6,962x top payout if everything goes your way while playing Hansel and Gretel Candyhouse—the Sibling Reels are going to be fairly influential in this outcome. The RTP is a little below the industry standard at 95.73% and you should expect extremely high volatility throughout your session.
I wasn't exactly sure how I felt about Hansel and Gretel Candyhouse when it first loaded up on my laptop screen. I sat slightly confused for a couple of minutes before finally getting into the house-munching swing of things. The Witch doesn't play much of a role and neither do the two main protagonists for that matter—they are symbolic, literally. The game doesn't lead anywhere but that's fine as it doesn't pretend to be something it's not. It is a straightforward base game and free spins around with a handy little modifier thrown in for good measure. If you like to keep slots simple and enjoy incredible cartoon-style graphics, then give this a go.
