The Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters movie inspired the online slot machine game of the same name. In the game the main characters are adults and are on a quest to rescue children who have been taken by Muriel the evil witch, and her group of minion witches.
Players act as Hansel & Gretel and are tasked with killing them. The more powerful the witch is the more money players get for taking them out. The witch worth the most money is Muriel.
The wild symbol in the game is a sympathetic troll named Edward. He becomes an expanding wild when he lands in the middle of the reels. Crossbows are the game’s scatter symbol and reward lucky players with instant wins. When players get at least three crossbows on the reels after a single spin they get 15 free spins and multiple expanding wilds that are transformed into sticky wilds for the duration of the free spins round.
This dark and spooky game is not for the faint of heart but is popular among adults who grew up hearing the story of Hansel & Gretel. The animation and graphics used in the game add to its macabre nature.
