The design in Ever After is solid enough. On the reels you’ll see lower value playing card suit symbols alongside a magical cat, a wise old owl and a pair of male and female characters. The woman is the best payer, awarding 4 times your stake if you land 5 on adjacent reels. Better still is the wild which awards up to 20 times your stake.
Look out for the magical harlequin fairy Faye who can appear on the reels at random on any spin and trigger the Magnificent Mirror feature which can award plenty of potential rewards by transforming up to 3 symbols with the following extras:
- Expanding Wilds - if she waves her magic wand and enchants a wild potion bottle, it will expand and fill that reel.
- Symbol Upgrades - character symbols transform into wilds while lower value playing card suits morph into higher paying character symbols.
- Boosted Bonus Symbols - more free spin triggering scatters are added to play. They offer bigger rewards if you land enough to trigger the Free Games feature.
That main bonus is the Free Games feature. Land 3, 4 or 5 of the window scatter on the same spin and you can look forward to 6, 12 or 30 free spins. Better still is if Faye has worked her magic to create enchanted Bonus symbols. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these and your reward is 6, 12, 30 or 60 free spins.
The Mirror Magnificent feature triggers on every free spin so you can expect plenty of symbol upgrades and expanding wilds which can further enhance your winning chances. It’s possible to re-trigger more free spins indefinitely too.
There are quite a few extras on offer here so a few spins in demo mode are recommended. The undoubted highlight is the Free Games feature where the free spins can combine with the Mirror Magnificent extras to impressive effect. You can win up to 4,860 times your stake on each spin!
The sound and visuals are perfectly fine and the features deliver plenty of play. We’re not usually big fans of this theme but Ever After works rather nicely and is certainly worth a look if you fancy some magical adventure. If you’re after a similar them, Wicked Tales: Dark Red from Microgaming is recommended.
