Unicorn Legend Slot
Unicorn Legend is a 5-reel, max 25-pay line online slot from NextGen Gaming. This is NextGen's entry into the ever-growing collection of fairy-tale based online slots. The game is centred upon that most fantastic and mystical of creatures, the unicorn. No one knows where the idea of the unicorn came from, as it is a creature that has never existed. Even the ancient Greeks were enchanted by the idea of unicorns, although for most people, why sticking a horn on a horse turns them into an enchanting, mystical animal is hard to understand. Stick a horn onto the head of a baby rabbit or a kitten and most people would be freaked out. Stick a horn on a horse and they fall in love. People, huh?
Anyhow, the legendary unicorns in this game exist in a stunning, technicolour fairy tale land, complete with Disney-esque castles, magical flowers, a wise-looking owl and a flaxen-haired princess. There are also playing card values nine through to ace. This slot has twenty-five lines, and all are selectable. You can also choose your coin size – anything from 0.01 to 2.00. Your final total bet per spin is the number of lines you have selected multiplied by the size of your coin. You can only ever gamble one coin per spin. When you're ready to go unicorn hunting, hit that spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The least magical winning payout in this game is for three nines or tens on an active pay line. This will win you four times your bet-per-line. The most magical symbol is that fairy-tale princess. Five of her will win you the jackpot of two thousand coins.
The unicorn is the 'substitute' symbol in this game. It only appears on the central three reels, but it substitutes for all other symbols aside from the 'emblem' scatter symbol.
Speaking of the 'emblem' scatter symbol, you only need to land two anywhere on the reels to win a prize. If you land three, then you win a number of free games. How you wish to play the free spins is up to you, and you have three choices:
- 20 free games with 'Unicorn' x2, x3 or x4
- 15 free games with 'Unicorn' x4, x5 or x6
- 10 free games with 'Unicorn' x6, x8 or x12
During free spins the 'Unicorn' multiplier is randomly chosen depending upon your selection. Any win during your free games that contains a unicorn symbol is multiplied by the chosen multiplier. You can also re-trigger free spins during your freebies.
All wins can be gambled. You can choose to wager your stake on the colour or suit of a concealed card. If you go suit and get it right, then you win four times your wager. If you go colour and are correct, then your win is doubled. Guess wrong and your stake is lost. You may gamble up to five times in succession.
Unicorns are perhaps not as popular as they used to be, and neither is this slot, which is a slight shame really as it's a bit of a slots classic. We always like slots that allow for a bit of user input, so it's pretty cool that you get to select how you want to play your free spins. Sadly though, online slots have moved on since this slot was released, so you'd best catch it now before it follows the unicorn into the realms of the fabled.
