All of us would have listened to and read children’s fairy tales in our formative years. Therefore it is hardly surprising that all leading games suppliers to online casinos have created video pokies based on several of these stories. Realtime Gaming powers some of the best online casinos like Fair Go, Joe Fortune and Ignition Casino. It offers video pokies based on well-known stories like Pinocchio and Rapunzel. These are reviewed and recommended in this article.
Pinocchio was the naughty but loveable wooden puppet and the Realtime Gaming online pokie based on this story is titled Wooden Boy. The high paying symbols will easily be identified with the story. These include the cuckoo clock, Pinocchio’s mentor the blue fairy, Honest John the fox who tricks Pinocchio, Pinocchio’s schoolbooks and the whale that swallows Geppetto. Popular lines from the story are announced when these symbols appear in winning combinations. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons, but they have been chiselled from wood in keeping with the theme. Pinocchio takes the pride of place as an expanded wild symbol. In the win animation he is carved from a block of wood. The blue fairy is the scatter symbol. Three, four or five scatter symbols landing anywhere on the reels award 5, 10 or 15 free spins respectively. During the free spins Pinocchio also takes on a 3x multiplier property. Wooden Boy online pokie also includes the Realtime Gaming randomly triggered progressive jackpot.
The story of Rapunzel has been presented by Realtime Gaming as Roberta's Castle. The name is different but the story is the same. The reels are set in the background of the tower of the castle where Roberta is imprisoned with her long golden hair hanging down. The high paying symbols are brush, mirror, scissors and cat. The low paying symbols are playing card icons surrounded by the rampion plant. Players familiar with the story will recall that the girl’s parents were caught stealing rampion from the witch’s garden, which led to her imprisonment. The prince who rescues Roberta is the wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property. It also awards the highest line payout of 15,000 coins for a combination of five symbols. This indicates very high variance and will attract aggressive Australian online casino players. The castle window is the scatter symbol and it triggers 15 free spins at tripled payouts. Roberta’s Castle also has the Realtime Gaming randomly triggered progressive jackpot.
