Rumpel Wildspins is an online slot machine developed by online gaming software company, Novomatic. The game is based on the German fairytale, Rumpelstiltskin, first recorded by the Brothers Grim in 1812. This fairy tale is centred around a king, a young girl and an imp-like creature, Rumpelstiltskin. The young girl is locked in the king’s tower overnight and told to spin straw into gold or she will be killed. The girl is unable to do this and has lost all hope before Rumpelstiltskin appears. He offers to spin the straw into gold for her in return for some pieces of jewelry. When the king sees that the girl can turn straw into gold he makes her do it again a second night and a third night.
The imp-like creature helps her every time but his demands grow greater. Rumpel Wildspins online Novomatic slot executes the theme of this fairy tale exceptionally well and just like in the fairy tale, you might be lucky enough that the spins turn your credits to gold. The 3D graphics and animations used in the game are very detailed and the symbols relate to the characters and objects prevalent in the fairy tale.

The betting amount ranges from between $0.01 and $5 per line and the maximum jackpot is $25,000.

Regular playing card symbols from 10 to Ace are used in Rumpel Wildspins online Novomatic slot, but there are also several symbols that relate directly to the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale. These include the ring and necklace that the young girls give to Rumpelstiltskin in return for him spinning the straw into gold. The young girl herself is a symbol, as is the gold bars. Rumpelstiltskin is the wild symbol. It is the highest paying symbol in the game as well as being able to substitute for the other symbols to complete a winning combination. The only symbol for which the wild does not substitute is the frog scatter symbol. To make it easily recognizable as the scatter symbol, the frog has the word ‘scatter’ underneath.
Bonus Features in Rumpel Wildspins Online Novomatic Slot
When 3 or more of the frog scatter symbol land anywhere on the reels, the player is rewarded with 15 free spins. During these free spins the accumulating wilds feature comes into play. This means that whenever a wild symbol lands on the reels during a spin, it will stay in that position on the reels until the free spins come to an end. This gives the player more chance of forming winning combinations because of the substitution characteristic of this symbol.
The second online casino bonus UK feature of the Rumpel Wildspins online Novomatic slot game is the gamble feature. Whenever you win an amount you will be given the option of gambling this win with the potential of doubling the prize.
