Once Upon A Time is a BetSoft online slots game with 30 paylines and 5 reels. Its has a common storybook theme from medieval times involving Gremlins and brave soldiers. The Gremlins might remind some players of Greedy Gremlins, which is another well-designed slot from Betsoft, but here they are featured in a different light and have many bonus features. 

The main game provides additional payouts with wilds, but the most impressive part is activating additional winnings with its 5 bonus features. These features are triggered by their own symbols, meaning most combinations on the reels can trigger additional opportunities. Players can also enjoy this game on the go with various smartphones.

Once Upon A Time astounds with its range of rewards with combinations during bonuses. Wild symbols kick off features as the dragon who appears on reel 3 to replicate others and trigger additional combinations. Moreover, these wild dragons expand to cover the reel its exposed on, to turn all symbols into wilds for additional combination opportunities.

Free spins are granted with 3 or more treehouse symbols on a line from left to right. The game initially rewards 5 free games, which can be increased with each treehouse symbols shown anywhere throughout the feature. Instant winnings are rewarded during the start game and free spins when the knight and princess appear adjacent to each other. A random reward will be granted and multiplied with the wager selected.

Greedy Goblins refers to a feature that is triggered with 3 or more bags of gold in any positions. Choose as many bags of gold for instant winnings, but choose carefully as some will end the feature with a collect sign. Saving the princess will require 3 knight symbols on any pay-line. In the feature, players need to defeat the dragon with a selection of weapons. Choosing the right weapon and completing the task faster will reward higher payouts.

Our personal favourite game is Goblin’s treasure. The feature is initiated by 3 Goblin symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. Players get to accompany the Gremlins into a room filled with valuables. Choose 3 of the most valuable to receive rewards. The select makes a major difference as rewards depend on the items selected.

Once Upon A Time is a dream slot for those who enjoy bonus games. During each feature, a massive range of winnings are available along with interactive activities and high-quality graphics. We found the standard game to provide regular combinations, but lower payouts. This is possibly due to the fact that bonus features offer major rewards. Our rating: 97/100
