May 1 is celebrated in many countries of the world for various reasons. One of them is as Mother Goose Day. The term Mother Goose dates back to the 17th century as the apocryphal narrator of nursery rhymes and fairy tales. Mother Goose Day was started in 1987 when Gloria T. Delamar published her book Mother Goose; From Nursery to Literature. The objective was to encourage parents and grandparents to read nursery rhymes and fairy tales to their children and grandchildren, so as to acquaint the younger generation with their literary heritage. Adults have another way of celebrating Mother Goose Day. They can wager on the several slot machines at online casinos that are based on the fantastic nursery rhymes and fairy tales. This article picks out and recommends some of the best.

Hansel and Gretel is a popular fairy tale. The iconic image from that story is the cottage of chocolate that lures the children to the wicked witch. The software provider Rival Gaming offers a video slot titled Candy Cottage based on this tale. The introductory clip provides a refresher for those who have forgotten the story. The witch, Hansel, Gretel, bread, chocolate, sweets, candy and jelly beans are the symbols on the reels. The furnace is an expanding wild. The candy cottage triggers 10 free spins at tripled payouts. The cage triggers the bonus game in which the witch fattens Hansel by offering him candies. Candy Cottage is live at all Rival Gaming online casinos like Ruby Royal and Sloto’ Cash.

Jack and the Beanstalk is the fairy tale chosen by the software provider Cryptologic for its video slot titled Enchanted Beans. Players will recognize the boy as Jack, the golden axe, the enchanted beans, the ogre’s castle, the magic harp and the gold coins from the story. The boy triggers the re-spins feature. First the boy wild symbol expands on reels 2 and 4 to awards payouts again. Then free spins are continuously awarded to the player till such time as the golden axe symbol appears on reel 3. Enchanted Beans can be played at Cryptologic online casinos such as InterCasino and VIP Casino.

Rapunzel was a princess imprisoned in a tall tower. She used her long tresses to allow a prince to climb up and help her escape. The software provider Realtime Gaming depicts this fairy tale in two different video slots titled Roberta’s Castle and Hairway to Heaven. Hairway to Heaven is the later and the more popular of the two. The princess is the wild symbol and expands to cover the entire reel. In the animation she appropriately lets down her hair and the prince climbs up. The other thematic symbols include the prince, the tower, the guard, the coat of arms, the mirror and the key to the tower. The high value card symbols are crafted in Gothic style commonly used in fairy tale books. The prince symbol triggers one of three lucrative free spins bonus games. Hairway to Heaven is live at all Realtime Gaming online casinos such as Club World, Win Palace and Slots Jungle.

Players at Microgaming online casinos like All Slots and Platinum Play can enjoy the nursery rhymes. Microgaming offers a series called Rhyming Reels which has two titles – Queen of Hearts and Old King Cole. Since online gaming is adult entertainment a bit of bawdiness has been introduced in these online slots. Players can see sexy waitresses serving the tarts in the first slot game and three female guitarists instead of the fiddlers in the second one.
