Ever After Slot
- A relatively basic theme with some interesting characters
- Only 2 features with the main focus on free spins
- Not the most engaging slot, but able to provide some decent payouts
Ever After slot from NextGen is a magical new game that bares some resemblance to other slots that we’ve reviewed such as Fairytale Legends Mirror Mirror slot in the way it’s designed, but it’s fair to say that the gameplay is really quite special. The main focus here is on free spins and the enhanced symbols that are available throughout the bonus, as these increase your chance of multiple Wilds each spin and with an unlimited number of free spins available, you could really see a big payout here.
But before we come onto the features and exactly how they work, let’s talk more about the design of the game. It’s quite clear from the title and general appearance of the slot that this is something akin to a fairy tale but a darker one, although I’m not quite sure I understand some of the symbols. I think Nextgen had a great opportunity here to form some kind of story like we’ve seen in some other slots, but instead, it’s all just a bit random. That being said, it doesn’t look too bad and despite not having amazing graphics or fancy animations I think it works quite well. You have a standard 5×3 reel layout and your job is to get a winning combination from left to right in order to get a cash reward or, hopefully, a bonus. These base symbols are listed as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Spades, Clubs, Diamonds of Hearts (lowest value)
- Girl (highest value)
Ever After Slot Bonuses and Features
Mirror Magnificent Feature. Whenever Faye, the fairy godmother appears randomly, up to 3 symbols on reel 1 will become enchanted. The enchanted symbols have special properties such that every symbol of the ones that have been chosen on becomes upgraded intro respective Wild symbols, substituting for all other symbols apart from the Bonus symbol. The Wild symbol will become a Super Charged Wild symbol so that it fills the entire reel.
Free Games Bonus. If you manage to land 3, 4 or 5 Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels, then you will be awarded with either 6, 12 or 30 free games, respectively. If the Bonus symbol has been enhanced through the Mirror Magnificent Feature, then 2, 3, 4 or 5 Enhanced Bonus symbols will give you 6, 12, 30 or 60 free spins, respectively. During the free spins, the Mirror Magnificent Feature will be triggered on every spin, so if you’re fortunate enough to trigger the bonus through the enhanced bonus symbols and get up to 60 free spins, you could see some serious payouts. Additionally, the free spins can be retriggered during the Free Games Bonus, so even if you only start with a handful of free spins, you could see yourself getting a lot more after. The Bonus symbol also pays out in a winning combination of 2 or more and is, in fact, the highest value symbol in the game.
Ever After slot by NextGen Gaming certainly has some interesting features and most importantly of all, a way to earn some serious money through the Free Games Bonus. This is quite clearly the main attraction of the slot and for good reason. For a start, you can theoretically win an infinite number of free spins, but just as importantly is the fact that the Mirror Magnificent Feature is active on every spin, meaning payouts can be significantly better, or rather the likelihood of getting a payout is significantly better. If you manage to get 50+ free spins which isn’t that unreasonable, you could expect some very big payouts by the end of it, with up to 4,860x your bet available on every single spin! All in all, the potential for such big rewards makes this slot very desirable, and even though I’m not such a big fan of the look of the game, I do think Ever After slot is a solid game that is worth checking out.
