The Odd Forest
Remember when you were a kid and your belief system was way different to how it is today – fairies at the bottom of the garden, toys that came to life, magical worlds full of friendly monsters, those were the days! You could easily slip into your imagination and feel like you were in a completely different world.
Well, it’s time to step back in to that child-like imagination, and play a slot game in the Odd Forest. A magical and colourful woodland far away, with huts for the woodland creatures, mystical music, and quirky little monsters (the good kind).
About the Developer
Foxium is pretty new to the game – they were founded in 2015 and have been working their way up the ladder ever since, with high-quality, innovative games that tell a story. They’ve signed up with Microgaming and NYX Interactive for distribution, so you know they’re serious contenders. Their portfolio isn’t huge, but when you’ve got engaging games like they do, it doesn’t need to be. If you’re interested in other-worldly type slot games like The Odd Forest, then you’ll love their games The Lost Riches of the Amazon and Big Time Journey – transporting you to lots of different eras, and worlds.
About the Game
This is a five-reel, 50 payline slot game, set in a magical woodland surrounded by lit up huts, falling leaves, and played to some mystical music in the background. You’ve got free spins, wilds, random wilds, scatters and bonus rounds in this fast-paced creation, so you best believe you can definitely win some big bucks here.
The Wild – simple to spot, it just says ‘Wild’ on the symbol. It can appear at any time and on any reel, and will substitute for any of the normal symbols in view.
The Scatter – the tree is the scatter symbol, and will trigger one of four free spins rounds. Land 3 more scatter symbols in this round and you’ll get 2 more free spins, land 4 scatter symbols and you’ll get 3 more free spins, or land 5 scatter symbols and you’ll get 5 more free spins.
Free spins – you’ll get the choice of 4 different free spins features when you trigger the free spins, select an orb to select your choice, and you’ll either get:
- 14 free spins
- 7 free spins with a sticky wild
- 8 free spins with a sliding wild
- 6 free spins with an extra wild, and all wins doubled
Bonus round – the fairy symbol triggers the bonus round (the fairy feature), and there’s four stages you need to get through. The first stage is picking a stone for a credit amount, the second stage is picking an orb for a reward – multiplier or extra hearts, the third stage you must pick one of the mini spiders for a random reward or extra hearts. Watch out for the spider symbol though, as that ends the round. If you get through this stage then you get to the final stage: final fight.
In this stage you must fight the spider, and the symbols on the reels will help you do that – certain symbols will deliver hits to the spider, and others will deliver hits to the fairy. This is where the extra hearts come in handy – the fairy starts with 5, and the more you collect in this round before the final stage, the more likely you are to beat the spider. Every time you hit the spider, you get rewarded, and then at the end if you beat the spider you’ll get 50x your bet amount, as well as your total win plus total multipliers collected.
With some intricate, and well thought out bonus rounds, The Odd Forest provides an interesting gaming environment that steers away from standard (can we say boring?) slot games. It keeps it fresh and fast-paced, and gives players loads of opportunities to increase their winnings.
