A Tale of Elves Slot Free Play
How To Play It
With 30 coins, the game allows you to spend anywhere from $0.30 to $12, for each spin.
A Tale of Elves features 5×3 reels, and has 243 ways to win active for its game area. When forming new combinations, you need 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols appearing on as many reels, left to right.
A wild symbol, which will have the image of a Wreath on it, serves as substitute on all reels. It pays quite well directly when possible (16.66x the stake), and it lands stacked, so there are decent odds of prizes coming from many ways to win at the same time. As a replacement, it does this for all regular symbols.
Looking at the game’s scatters, the ones with Santa, these show up on all reels, and can deliver a prize of up to 200x the stake, in exchange for 3 to 5 symbols. If you only get two Santa scatters, then you receive a random cash prize.
In exchange for the same 3 or more scatters, there is also a free spins feature to trigger, where four different options are shown. The volatility changes, as the multiplier goes up, the lower the number of free spins. With another set of scatters, you can retrigger the feature.
Yellow Elf: 8 free spins, with 5x win multiplier, stacked symbols come in groups of three Yellow Elves.
Orange Elf: 10 free spins, with 4x win multiplier, where Orange Elves are stacked 4-high.
Green Elf: 14 free spins, with 3x win multiplier, where Green Elves are stacked 5-high.
Blue Elf: 18 free spins, with 2x win multiplier, and Blue Elves are stacked 6-high.
If you only look at the base game, you might not love it, as a prize of up to 16.66x the stake is the highest that a single combo can pay. However, add 5x win multipliers from the free spins, and take the 243 ways to win into account, and you will quickly see how the slot is capable of paying 20,000x the stake in a single spin.
Naturally, this comes at the expense of the game’s volatility, which is high. Another downside for A Tale of Elves, is the 95.07% RTP, which is low enough that many will not even consider it.
A Tale of Elves provides you with a traditional design, pretty much what you want to see for a winter title. With multipliers helping you get close to up to 20,000x jackpots, it looks good at first, but a below average RTP is likely to ruin it for most.
