- Quickspin releases teaser video for its latest online slot title, Fairy Gate
- New game, due for launch on September 12 includes the developer’s Achievements Engine
Developer Quickspin has been busy beavering away on its latest online slot and judging by the preview teaser video it has just released, it looks set to be enchanting. Fairy Gate is the name of the game and the setting for the 5-reel slot is a magical woodland that’s home to fairies of course and other sprites.
Players will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on Quickspin’s gleaming new game though; it’s not scheduled for release until September 12. Although technically a 5-reel slot, the game expands to cover 7 reels, marking Fairy Gate down as being much more than just a rapidly assembled clone. The mobile-compatible slot has 20 paylines and can be played with a line bet of as little as 0.01.
Magic fortune awaits
There’s a lot of sparkles in this game, just as you’d expect, with everything liberally coated with a thick application of fairy dust. “Magic fortune awaits, beyond the fairy gate” beams the promotional video. That gate is an ancient tree of the forest, one which has the potential to open on any spin, thrusting you into a magical new world within a world.
While the action commences on a standard 5×3 board, there are two glowing orbs to the right of the reels, where the fairy gate stands. These guard the gateway to the realm that lies beyond.
Although the playing card values that Quicksin has designed as symbols look fairly standard, the fairies themselves are a more beguiling proposition, including a redhead and a blue-haired pixie with more than a touch of Tinkerbell to her. Keep an eye on the orbs to the right of the reels, for these have the power to award random wilds and respins by dispatching butterflies across the board to alight on certain reels.
Fairy Gate uses Quickspin’s Achievements Engine, which generates tasks within the game for players to complete. In return, they’ll be awarded tokens that they can cash in or exchange for game features. Impressive as the technical specification of the slot is, it’s the gorgeous graphics that will hook most players.
Three bonus symbols in view are enough to trigger 10 free spins, whereupon the fairy gate opens and remains open for the duration of the spins. This means orbs aplenty descending and sending butterflies fluttering onto the main board to turn multiple symbols wild. Expect to be seeing a lot of Fairy Gate at online casinos when this game finally launches. Quickspin have officially just raised the bar for fairy-themed slots.
Quickspin’s Achievements Engine is an innovative feature that is bringing its games to life. Making use of six unique game events it makes the developer’s slots more immersive and exciting for the player by letting them track progress and claim bonuses among other things. In terms of trends, it’s bang on. There is a great deal of talk about immersive gameplay and user experience at the moment, and for good reason – with the online casino market becoming increasingly busy and a new generation of players demanding more from their casino experience, developers are working hard at giving them the best gaming they can get. When it comes to this particular release, admittedly fairies may not be for everyone. However, for the Achievements Engine alone it maybe worth a spin.
