Pixies of the Forest is the latest Tumbling Reels powered slot machine from IGT. It’s one of a number of growing slots that offers you a fixed number of pay-lines for a fixed price. This is one of the most economical of the type, giving you ninety nine lines for just thirty three coins.
This is all contained within a standard slot machine set up where you’ve got five reels with three stop spaces per reel. We’re not sure if this is the first of many IGT slots that are going to be offering a 3 for 1 coin deal, but as the machine is branded with a special logo denoting this fact, we feel it might be the first of many.
Sonics and Graphics
The visuals on Pixies of the Forest are out of this world. IGT have really pushed the magic boat out with this one, drawing on classic themes. All the reel art is immaculate and of picture quality, especially when you look at the fairies. Each of these is very well drawn, with near photo realism and when you hit the wins, they animate beautifully. The reel animation is deliberately clunky, giving you the impression of individual blocks falling into the board as opposed to reels stopping in place. This works very well with the Tumbling Reels feature. Finally, the background immerses you in a beautiful Summer’s forest, where you can imagine the pixies joyfully flying through the air.
The sound on this slot machine is also excellent. If you stop playing the game to answer an email or a Facebook message then the sound dies down. Then when you start playing again the sonics come to life making the game vibrate with an ethereal harmony that’s simply delightful. Expect giggling fairies and the laughter of the little forest folk to outline your slot machine experience.

Expanding Wilds and Bonus Round
There are two different bonuses available on Pixies of the Forest. The first is the ‘Expanding Wild’ feature. Here, if you stop one of the special Fairy wilds on one of the three middle reels it will expand to cover all the stop spaces. This is a great way at maximising your board wins and can make what seems to be a good win into a truly massive cash prize.
The bonus round on Pixies of the Forest is a fairly standard free spin game. It’s activated by stopping in three of the ‘Bonus’ symbols on the reels. Pick one of these to reveal how many free spins you’ll be taking into the feature. This bonus takes place on a special second set of enhanced reels which are packed with even more wilds and scatters than the normal game set. Here you can sit back as the game plays through your free spins, watching the wins chalk up. As with many similar bonuses you’ve played in the past, you can hit another three scatters to reactivate the bonus giving you an additional ten free spins. Finally, if you’re lucky enough to hit a win on this round with a Fairy wild then you prizes for that spin will be tripled.
Pixies of the Forest has a low spin cost and a high fun factor. The reel game is well balanced and is constantly paying out prizes!
