The witching hour is close at hand and all those who want to share in the riches need to beware. For try as they may the Microgaming team can’t protect you all from those wanting to keep the spoils to themselves. If, however you are feeling brave enough to whip the witch’ treasure from right under their noses, then you’re certainly ready to play Lucky Witch.
Lucky Witch is a 5-reel, 15 pay line slot with a magical RTP of 96.5% for players. The way it is laid out and its graphics, give the game a retro feel. But weirdly considering the theme and the age of the game it works better than you would imagine. There is an owl hooting away in the background along with other nightly chirrups, lending an almost creepy feel to it. Symbols are all witchcraft themed in nature and include potion bottles, a gargoyle, pumpkins, a lizard, crystals, and of course the witch’s familiars an owl and a black cat.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Lucky Witch begins at 1p per line in play and can be increased to 20p per line in play. You can also adjust the coins per line meaning if you have one line in play at 1p but coin level set at 2, then your stake will be 2p. With all these ways to vary your bet, this means that spins can cost anywhere from just 1p up to the maximum of £300 per spin.
Wild Symbol – The Lucky Witch logo is the wild symbol and it will only substitute for the witch symbol, the cat, the owl and the lizard. This is a relatively odd substitution range, but in fairness you do get x2 your win when the wild substitutes and creates a win. Not only that your wild symbols are also stacked on the reels meaning more potential win chances.
Scatter Symbol – Your scatter symbol is depicted by a bottle of poison. Land 2 or more scatters to bag a scatter win on top of your line wins, but land 3 or more to trigger the bonus feature. The scatter wins are;
- 2 scatter symbols will award x15 coin win,
- 3 scatter symbols will award x45 coin win,
- 4 scatter symbols will award x750 coin win,
- 5 scatter symbols will award x3000 coin win.
Bonus Symbol – A bubbling cauldron of green goo is your mystery bonus symbol on Lucky Witch. Land 3 of these anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5 to trigger the mystery feature and a chance to win big. Once into the bonus feature you will be awarded one of four possible games to play.
Bonus Spins Feature – Three or more of the poisonous potion scatter will trigger this feature for you. You will be allocated 13 bonus spins regardless of whether you landed 3, 4 or 5 scatters. Most people deem 13 an unlucky number, but not these witches and hopefully not you either! During the bonus spins the witch symbol becomes a wild and has a x2 multiplier attached to it. It will only substitute for the owl, the cat and the lizard in the bonus spins, but it will double any wins it helps to complete. Bonus spins can be retriggered from within the round on Lucky Witch and the mystery feature can also be triggered from here too!
Mystery Bonus Feature – Land three bubbling cauldron symbols to trigger this feature and you will be allocated with one of four potential bonus games.
- Magic Potion Bonus – there will be 12 potion bottles on show, pick a bottle to reveal a prize. The round ends when you pick the poison symbol, or you find the reveal all symbol. The poison symbol will end the round and send you back to the main game, the win all will allocate all available prizes to your balance.
- Pumpkin Cauldron Bonus – five pumpkins will hover above the cauldron, pick a pumpkin to reveal a prize. You will get the chance to take the prize or pick again, but you only get two more picks so be careful with your choices. When you are happy with your choice click the yes button to claim it.
- Secret Vault Bonus – you will be given the task of picking 3 symbols out of 12 on the vault door. The remaining symbols will reveal the prizes that the held behind them, with your chosen three remaining hidden. You will now have to choose one of the three symbols as your prize, choose wisely.
- Spell Book Bonus – choose one of the three books on screen to win a prize multiplier. Occasionally a naughty imp will appear and cast a spell which can increase your chosen spell book prize up to a x52 multiplier!
Well, well, well, who would have thought that after all those years of bad reputations witches are actually kind of alright! Lucky Witches is a superfast and engaging slot with lots of extras and chances to win bigger and better prizes. Wins happen fast and furious whether in the main or the bonus spins. The mystery feature is a bit slower, but it made the game play a lot more fun.
