Cindereela Novomatic Video Slot
We all know the fairy tale Cinderella, where an orphan girl finds happiness with a handsome prince. Novomatic has taken the famous name and created a play on words with the slot machine world to bring you a pretty little slot game with a fairy tale theme. Cindereela Novomatic Video Slot has five reels and ten optional paylines. There is not a huge amount of special features, and the slot is a pretty basic one that may appeal to beginners and players who want to just wind down with something a bit mindless. The minimum bet is four coins per line, which could make it a bit expensive. Luckily only having ten paylines negates that.
Novomatic have not fall over themselves to create mind boggling graphics for this slot. They are not bad by any means, just a bit average. Done to look like a little girls TV show, Cindereela Novomatic Video Slot has a non-descript green hilly background with a stereotypical fairy type castle in the distance. The overall feel to slot is calm and actually a bit boring. This is definitely not a game for adrenaline junkies. The reels themselves have what looks like wallpaper in the background, and the buttons at the bottom are neatly and predictably laid out. The sound track is not unique either, and is the standard Novomatic music, which may drive you bananas after a while. The game is not really animated either, with only one symbol doing any moving.
Fairy Tale Theme and Symbols
The theme to this slot is very familiar. It is based on the story of Cinderella and how she leaves her terrible life of slavery to marry a handsome prince. The symbols on the reels represent certain aspects of her life such as her pet dog, some mice, a pumpkin, the fairy godmother and some red glass slippers. The base symbols in the game are from a deck of cards, namely 10 to Ace. These have not had a whole lot done to them at all, aside from being in different colours.
Basic Special Features
Cindereela Novomatic Video Slot has very few special features. The only things really worth noting are the free spins and the wild symbol. Cindereela herself is the games wild, and is also the highest paying symbol in the game awarding you with 40 000 coins if you find her five times on an active payline. Being a low variance slot, this does not happen very often. She also replaces all other symbols except for the Fairy godmother to create winning combinations. The Fairy Godmother is the games scatter, and also the only symbol that animates. She offers scatter pays of up to 8000x the bet for five of her on an active payline in a row from right to left. Her second function is to grant you with free spins. When she does appear on screen she informs you that all wins are doubled during the free spins round, and proceeds to set a clock to a specific length of time which determines your amount of free spins.
The final feature in Cindereela Novomatic Video Slot is the gamble feature, where you have the option of doubling any win by guessing the colour of a card. This may be the most exciting part of the whole slot.
