In a dark forest stands an enchanted castle in which an evil beast lives…
This is how the fairy tale of the Beautiful and the Beast begins. Yggdrasil has released the slot machine “Beauty and the Beast” and was obviously inspired by the new movie with Emma Watson. In the fairy tale, a snooty prince who rejects a beggar turns into a beast. Because the beggaress is actually a sorceress. As a punishment the prince has to live like this and with him the domestic workers, who have also been transformed. The sorceress gives the beast a rose that indicates his remaining lifetime. If the rose withers before he finds true love, he dies. One day the beautiful Belle appears in the castle and is held captive by the beast. First Belle despises the beast, but finally they fall in love and the spell can be broken. A classic fairy tale, let’s take a look at what Yggdrasil made of it.
The slot machine “Beauty and the Beast” has five reels and 20 paylines. As soon as you open the slot machine, an intro starts, in which the equally enchanted butler opens the door to the dark mansion for the players. The castle is completely covered in snow and stands alone on a hill. Finally, the background of the reels is a large double staircase leading to the other parts of the house. Yggdrasil also took great care in designing the background. To the right of the rollers there are colourfully glazed gothic windows and to the left we see the three house spirits: Butler, cook and maid. The symbols on the rollers all come from the fairy tale and apparently from the beast’s treasure chest, because there are many precious stones among them: a heart-shaped sapphire, a drop-shaped citrine, a round rose quartz, an angular ruby, a pentagonal amethyst, a triangular emerald. And of course Belle, the Beast and the Rose, which here represents the Free Spin symbol. The wild symbol is a frame with a wild lettering in it. Depending on the winning combination, the beast roars loudly or the gems sparkle for a bet. For players who have become quite nostalgic and want to watch the Disney movie again, this can be done naturally and still win. As with any slot machine, there is also the autoplay function. The stake starts at 0,20€ and can be increased up to 100€.
bonuses and winnings
The chances of winning at Beauty and the Beast are not so bad! The game surprises with very cool features and symbols that give the player several advantages. The three servants mentioned above, for example, are very helpful in free play mode. Then the player can choose between them and choose one. The butler pushes a roll one position up or down to get a better result. The cook synchronizes the middle three reels and the maid places two to four wild symbols on random positions. A Wild symbol replaces all other symbols except the Free Spin symbol.
The low-rated symbols in the slot machine are the gems, the higher-rated symbols are Belle and the Beast. An additional feature is the “Golden Bet”, which gives players more features (for a fee). It can be activated and deactivated at any time. The boost function costs five coins and gives the player more winnings in free play mode. The Nudge function costs fifteen coins and gives the player more free spins. The last option is to combine both functions. The BoostNudge feature costs 30 coins and combines both.
Not only for romantic Disney fans, but also for players who want to make the most of their chances. Beauty and the Beast by Yggdrasil is a great slot machine with really good graphics!
