Forget everything you think you know about witchcraft, because Pragmatic Play are about to change it all. Gone are the hags and crones that we associate with witches and instead replaced by beautiful and wily creatures, that are all about spell casting. In Wild Spells you will be treated to stunning graphics, great features and there’s even a trio of jackpots on offer too.
Wild Spells is a 5-reel, 25 fixed pay line slot offering a mystical RTP of 96.4%, for those who dare enter the witch’s realm. Set against a mountainous backdrop, the reels look like they are framed in silver with the three jackpots at the top. There is a nice mix of symbols including the usual card icons, magical emblems and of course the witches themselves. Higher value symbols are the three witches, spell book, potion and candle, with the A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 making up the lower values.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Wild Spells begins at 25p per spin and can be adjusted up to £125 per spin. Amending the bet amount is easy enough, click on the plus or minus sign on either side of the spin button. An expanded screen will float up and give you the options of changing the coin level or the coin value, until you reach your desired bet amount.
Wild Symbol – Your wild symbol is a black cat in Wild Spells, and she will substitute for all others except the scatter. It will appear stacked on the reels and when forming part of a win comes to life with a little animation, which is cool.
Scatter Symbol – A crystal ball is your scatter symbol in Wild Spells. Landing three or more of these anywhere on the reels will trigger the bonus feature.
Progressive Jackpots – To bag yourself one of the three available progressive jackpots, you need to land 3 or more full stacks of witches. They can be the same or different, but there needs to be at least three full stacks and they need to be on adjacent reels to qualify. If you are lucky enough to land them in the right order, then the jackpots are won as shown below:
- 3 full stacks of any witch symbols awards the minor jackpot,
- 4 full stacks of any witch symbols awards the major jackpot,
- 5 full stacks of any witch symbols awards the grand jackpot.
The jackpots cannot be won within the bonus feature, only during the main game.
Bonus Spins Feature – Three or more crystal ball scatter symbols are needed in order to trigger the bonus spins round. Once you have done this you will be given the choice of the following three for your bonus spins;
- 1st choice – 20 bonus spins plus the green witch turns wild on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5,
- 2nd choice – 10 bonus spins plus the green and blue witches turn wild on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5,
- 3rd choice – 5 bonus spins plus the green, blue and orange witches all turn wild on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.
Bonus spins can be retriggered, but in this round you would need to land the three or more required scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5. But in doing so once your current round ends you will be given another chance to pick the round you want and enter the spins again. There is no limit to the amount of times the bonus spins can be retriggered.
What’s not to love about witches offering you multiple ways of winning. Wild Spells is simple to play, plus it’s easy on the eyes and ears too, with its stunning design and beautiful backing music. Add to that a bonus spins feature that has more to it than your normal spins. The extra wilds choice is always going to be a hard one, but we stuck with the 20 spins the few times we did get into the feature. It served us well and we even managed to retrigger the bonus once or twice.
