Beauty & the Beast (BAB), themed on the legendary French fairy tale, is the newest addition to Yggdrasil’s repertoire of fantastic games. This slot boasts lavish visuals and an enchanting soundscape. BAB features random wilds, nudge reels and synced reels. The crown jewel of this tragically romantic slot is the Golden Bet feature, which increases the player’s chance to land Free Spins and/or increases the win potential in Free Spin mode.
The player can activate and deactivate Golden Bet at any time during the base game. Activating the Golden bet gives the player extra features but costs between 5 and 30 coins.
The 3 types of Golden Bet available are:
Boost (+5 coins)
Free Spins start with 2 feature picks instead of 1
Nudge (+15 coins)
When you land 2 to 4 Free Spin symbols and one more
landed just outside the game area, it will be nudge in to trigger Free Spins and/or award the
extra coin win
Boost & Nudge (+30 coins)
Combine Boost and Nudge to give the best possible Free Spin mode opportunity!
Each time a Free Spin mode is triggered, players get to choose one feature (represented by a servant) to help them get a better win.
The Butler nudges one reel up or down one position to give the best possible outcome.
The Chef synchronizes the middle three reels.
The Maid places 2-4 Wild symbols in random positions.
Free Spins can be retriggered in Free Spin mode. Retriggering Free Spin mode, resets the amount of Free Spins to 10 and awards an extra Free Spin Servant.
Once the player has all three servants in Free Spin mode, Free Spins cannot be retriggered.
This is a medium to low variance game depending on whether the player activates the Golden Bet or not.
Welcome to Beauty and the Beast Video Slot with Golden bets and a Free Spin mode where you can select one of three features.
Beauty and the Beast is a Video Slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines oriented from left to right. The game has eight regular symbols that win if three or more are lined up in sequence on a payline, beginning from the leftmost position. The 2 high pay symbols are represented by the Beauty and the Beast in the base game and by the Princess and the Prince in Free Spin mode. The 6 low pay symbols are represented by crystals of different colors and shapes.
The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the Free Spin symbol. The Wild symbol is represented by a mirror in Free Spin mode and by a broken mirror in the base game.
FREE SPIN MODE
Three or more Free Spin symbols landing anywhere trigger the Free Spin mode. Before the Free Spins start, players choose 1 or 2 (if Boost Golden Bet is activated) extra features. Free spins are played with the same lines and bet as the triggering spin.
If you get three or more Free Spin symbols in the Free Spin mode, the number of spins left is reset to 10 and you get to choose another feature. The re-triggered Free Spin mode will have both the original and the new feature.
Should you get three or more Free Spin symbols again, the number of spins left is reset to 10 and you play with all three features activated. At this point, no more Free Spin symbols will appear on the reels (Free Spins can’t be retriggered again).
The Free Spin symbol is represented by a faded rose in the base game and a blooming rose in Free Spin mode.
If 4 Free Spin symbols land anywhere on the reels, 1000 coins are awarded in addition to triggering or re-triggering the Free Spin mode.
If 5 Free Spin symbols land anywhere on the reels, 5000 coins are awarded in addition to triggering or re-triggering the Free Spin mode.
The three features are triggered by 3 servant characters: The Chef, the Butler and the Maid.
The Chef – the three middle reels spin synchronized and the three reels will always show the same combination of three symbols. For example, if the second reel shows a red crystal, a blue crystal and a yellow crystal, then both the third and fourth reel will also show red crystals, blue crystals and yellow crystals.
The Butler – after the reels have stopped, one of the reels will be nudged one spot up or down if the win can be improved. If the Free Spins mode can be triggered, the best nudge which triggers the Free Spin mode is chosen. If the Chef is active together with the Butler, all synced reels nudge as one reel.
The Maid – every spin, 2-4 wilds are added to random positions. The wilds can not be added on top of wilds or Free Spin symbols.
Any spin in the base game can trigger one of the features (randomly chosen).
You can activate and deactivate the Golden Bet at any time during the base game. Activating the Golden bet gives you extra features at a cost of 5-30 coins per spin.
There are 3 Golden Bets to choose from:
