Back again for another fun round, Enchanted Garden II Slots is a sequel to a popular faerie themed game bearing the same name, sans the number. It is a heart warming and well done experience that is well suited to people that are a fan of Disney tales, nature, and winning a bit of dough on the side. Although it takes few risks, it all came together in a very competent way. For that reason, it is a decent slot that some people will like, and some people will love.
With a number in the title, you know this one’s a sequel. Much like the first game, Enchanted Garden II Slots takes place in a magical forest, complete with faeries and woodland trappings as you go about your money winning ways. It is an odd fit for a slot given the nature of slots themselves, but for some reason, it manages to work pretty well, evidenced by the first game being popular enough that it got a sequel.
This is a great looking game. The presentation here is very well done, and we cannot find much to fault it for. The portraits are very well drawn, contain just enough expressiveness to keep them cute, and have you matching suits of cards alongside forest elves in a refreshingly relaxing setting. The backdrop is great, and everything glows vibrantly with wonderful colors. The play control panel along the bottom, however, leaves something to be desired, and does stand in stark contrast with the rest of the presentation. This is not uncommon in slots, however, so how much it irks you will depend on how many games you have played.
Keeping to a winning formula, Enchanted Garden II Slots takes the same path as its prequel, being a five reel slot with 25 play lines. The garden and Faerie symbols as you might expect both award players with bonus rounds to enjoy, and it can all begin with as little as a dollar. This makes the game very accessible and rewarding, even though the rest of it does not deviate very far from standard slots, nor the original game for that matter. If you are a fan of the original, you will certainly like this one, though they do not differ enough to make either one a clear winner here. They did change the Firefly Feature enough to stand out, however, awarding players with 7 free games and a triple prize.
Other standard features like autoplay are of course present, and the maximum number of free games you can get is a respectable 10.

Who is this Game For?
This game is suitable for players of all types. In particular, it should appeal to:
* Players new to digital slots and looking for something relatively accessible
* Moderate intensity players that have gotten their feet plenty wet in the online slots world and are looking for something a little more involved
* Jaded slot vets
* People that mostly want to win a bunch of money playing digital slot games
* Players looking for slot nostalgia for the similarities and differences this slot has to other games
* People more used to normal video games that are looking to get their feet wet in the world of online slots
Who is the Game NOT For?
Although we enjoy this slot, it is not for everybody. In particular, it may not be your cup of tea if this describes you in any fashion:
* Averse to winning money online
* Looking for something truly innovative in the genre
* You find the theme in any way offputting
Is it Buggy?
In the time we spent playing this game, we did not encounter any bugs, problems, or errors. The same cannot be said for all slots of this genre, so we commend the developers for a job well done on that. We also encountered no issues in processing winnings or payments, and everything ran very smooth just like you would expect across many varied devices in a variety of ecosystems and operating systems.
We are not sure why, but Faeries are really popular as of late, which Enchanted Garden II Slots stands as a testament too. The first game was popular enough to warrant a sequel, and the second is competent enough to warrant anyone taking a look. It must be said, however, that if you are not into the relaxing, magical theme that the game provides, you probably will not find a whole lot on offer here to keep you interested. It is a very decent game, but never manages to be an inventive one. We do not fault it for that because it is technically a sequel to a game people clearly liked to begin with, but it would have been nice if they would have jazzed it up a bit and differentiated it more from the first. This game receives our wholehearted recommendation, and we feel what is on offer is good enough that no one will regret giving it a spin will admiring the mystical forest backdrops and cute little pixie characters.
