A Tale of Elves Slot (Microgaming)

A Tale of Elves Slot (Microgaming)As we wrap up the year 2020, Microgaming has been releasing slot after the other, and the latest to join their ever-growing list is a game titled, A Tale of Elves.

This game offers some pretty holiday-themed graphics, and with the right mindset, it is a title that you can successfully enjoy during the Christmas holidays.

After playing A Tale of Elves for almost one week, here is my review of the game:

Game Set-Up

A Tale of Elves uses the usual 5x3 reels design, with up to 243 ways to win.

For the features, Microgaming has included free spins and multipliers (up to 5x), scatters, random cash prizes, and wilds (Wreath).

Betting and Prizes

The slot requires a minimum of $0.30 to get the spins moving. The highest amount that you can use per spin is $12.

The slot has massive potential with a possibility of getting as much as 20,000x the stake.

It is a highly volatile slot and the RTP of 95.07% does not help things much. The slot’s RTP is relatively lower than what we see on other modern slots.

A Tale of Elves Slot Features

As usual, the wild symbols will be present, and they will assist in forming winning combinations. If wilds show up on all the available reels, they can be used to form their own wins.

The slot uses Santa scatters to trigger the free spins, and with them, you can get a fixed prize of up to 200x the stake, in addition to accessing the provided free spins.

There are 4 different versions of free spins that you can choose from, and this is how the variations look like:

Yellow Elf: this version offers up to 8 free spins and a 5x multiplier, which will be stacked.

Orange Elf: offers 10 free spins, with a 4x multiplier.

Green Elf: consists of 14 free spins and a 3x multiplier, in addition to 5-Green Elf symbols.

Blue Elf: Will give you a cool 18 free spins plus a 2x multiplier. This is in addition to a 6-symbol high stacked Blue Elf sign.

The best part is that you will be allowed to retrigger these free spins. For this to happen, you need to land another batch of at least 3 Santa symbols.

Theme & Design

A Tale of Elves has four toy makers as part of its major symbols. Of course, Santa is present, and it is the symbol that acts as a scatter, and the Wreath represents the wild.

Microgaming has used Royals to represent low-value symbols. The graphics are good, and so is the design.


Microgaming got it right with a majority of A Tale of Elves features. As a Christmas themed slot, its a perfect release for the upcoming holidays.

However, I’m a little disappointed with the slot’s low RTP low which may not be of much help when you are looking for profits.
