Rumpel Wildspins Slot
Rumpel Wildspins is a 5-reel, max 20-pay line online slots game from Novomatic. This game is based on the famous old fairy tale, Rumpelstiltskin. In it, a miller's daughter is captured by the king as there are rumours on Twitter that she can spin straw into gold. Naturally, she's unable to perform this particular magical feat, but fortunately a mischievous, nameless imp performs and completes the task for her, on the proviso that she gives the imp her firstborn child.
The king and the miller's daughter eventually tie the knot and have a baby, but they decline to abandon their babe to the imp, who hasn't even been DBS-checked. The imp threatens to baby-snatch, but says he will abandon his claim if the miller's daughter can guess his name within three days. Happily, the miller's daughter happens upon the imp in a local wood whom – somewhat fortuitously, is singing a song filled with spoilers, including his name, 'Rumpelstilitskin'. When he comes to the palace to claim his prize his name is revealed, and he is so angry he literally tears himself in two. That's certainly one way to split the scene.
In this slot Mr Stiltskin is joined on the reels by playing card values ten through to ace, plus gold bars, a golden ring, a golden tiara and the miller's daughter herself. You can choose as many of the lines as you want in play for each spin, plus the size of your coin from 0.01 to 5.00. When you're ready to get spinning, hit the 'spin' button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The minimum winning payout in this game is 10x your bet-per-line for three identical tens, jacks or queens. The jackpot of 1,000x is won by landing five Rumpelstiltskin symbols on an active pay line.
Rumpelstiltskin also acts as the wild symbol in this game. He substitutes for all other symbols aside from the scatter symbol.
A rather weird-looking frog acts as the scatter symbol here. If you land at least three of him anywhere on the reels you win fifteen free games with acccumulating wilds. During your free games any wilds that you land will remain in place until the end of your free spins.
All wins (except those during autoplay) can be gambled. You get to choose whether a hidden card will be red or black when turned over. Guess right and you double your stake, but guess wrong and you lose everything. You can gamble until you reach 10,000 coins.
That's about it for 'Rumpel Wildspins'. If you're looking for an advanced slot with lots of bonus games and features, then this is not likely to be a fairy tale for you. It's just your standard five reel slot with wilds, scatter and free spins. The graphics are great, but other than that there's not much else exciting about this Novomatic slot.
