The new Mirror Mirror pokie from NetEnt is the third instalment of their popular Fairytale Legends series. First, there was Red Riding Hood, then Hansel and Gretel, and now we have Snow White taking over the reels in an exciting rendition of the popular classic.
As you would expect from the developer, Mirror Mirror looks similar to its predecessors, with incredibly realistic 3D animation, colourful backdrops and designer objects scattered throughout the game.
In terms of the setup, the pokies game retains the same basic structure as the others in the franchise, and has 5 reels and 243 Ways To Win. As per usual, you can set the coin value from 0.1 up to 1.00 per spin.
There are also 10 bet levels available from a total bet of 10 up to 100 (10x10). On the reels, the highest paying symbol is the game logo, followed by the Snow White, the Queen, a gemstone and a lantern. The lower paying symbols include high cards from 9 to Ace.
Packed Full of Bonuses
Aside from the stunning visuals, the most engaging part of Mirror Mirror is the bonus features, of which there are many. While there is no Wild symbol as such, there is a Mirror re-spin feature where a mirror can appear on the reels. When it does, it can transform into the queen or Snow White and trigger a re-spin.
In this game, there are 3 bonus features that can be triggered and 3 features that are triggered randomly. The main set of bonuses are triggered by landing the golden box on reels 1, 3 and 5 on an active payline. This triggers one of three bonuses. The first is a mining bonus, the second, a free spins bonus and the third is a coin win bonus. The mining bonus is a simple click and pick where you click on gems to reveal a bonus win amount. Free spins are self-explanatory with 10 free spins and the coin bonus pays out 15x your total bet stake.
A Worthy Addition to the Series
Keeping things interesting, NetEnt have included a set of randomly triggered features that can seriously improve your bankroll. The first is the Fairy Magic Spin which can insert a cluster of up to 7 high paying symbols over the reels. The second feature is the Fairy Surprise which is randomly triggered after any non-winning spin. Here one symbol is picked and replaced on the reels until a win is achieved. The final feature is the Fairy Mirror feature which simply places a mirror symbol on reel 3 triggering a re-spin.
With Mirror Mirror, NetEnt have upped their game, bringing in more bonus features, engaging content, random wins, high quality graphics. There is no doubt, this will be a worthy addition to the series and a positive projection for things to come.
