Since Microgaming's Lord Of The Rings, heroic fantasy has proven itself to be ever more popular. It is now RTG who exploits the genre with Witches and Wizards, a new slot machine available exclusively on the online casino Bodog. Its atmosphere could disapoint some gamblers with its old-style graphics. Personally, I really like this artistic choice which makes me quite nostalgic. Its graphics remind us of the classic Dungeons and Dragons by WagerWorks, which is sadly not available in most countries still. As for the soundtrack, we are offered pleasant tunes and eighties-style MIDI sound effects.
The Witches and Wizards video slot machine offers 5 reels and 25 payment lines. It also offers a multiplier Wild and a Scatter symbol. On top of that, during the game, you can randomly win a progressive jackpot. Witches and Wizards also offer some truly magical free spins. After each free spin, a spell is cast randomly and changes the game in different ways.
Range of bets
During a game of Witches and Wizards, you can only play one single coin per payment line. On the other hand, these coins can be worth 0,01, 0,02, 0,05, 0,10, 0,25, 0,50, 1 r 5 €/$/£. The range of available bets is quite wide since the smallest bet available is of as little as €/$/£ 0,01 and the maximum bet of €/$/£ 125.
A cauldron as Wild
The multiplier Wild symbol is a cauldron. It can substitute itself to any other symbol, except for the Scatter, in order to form winning combinations. When it is used in a winning combination, the amount you win is doubled. On top of that, if you manage to get 3, 4 or 5 Wild on a single activated payment line, you will win respectively 500, 2.000 or 4.000 coins.
A wizard's wand as Scatter
The Scatter symbol is a wizard's wand. If you get it 2, 3, 4 or 5 times anywhere on screen, you win respectively 2, 5, 10 or 50 coins. On top of this, with at least 3 Scaatters on the reels, you also win some free spins.
10 re-triggerable magical free spins
As son as you get 3 Scatter symbols anywhere on screen, you get 10 free spins. These free spins are quite original since, after each spin, a spell is cast on the ongoing game. There are 4 different magic spells.
Wild-Explosion, one item is chosen at random and becomes Wild. All its appearances are affected.
Wild-Growth, the cauldron item becomes an Expandable Wild. They get bigger and occupy all the spots on the reel they appear on.
Metamorpha-Wild, up to 15 items are turned Wild, but his time not all their appearances are concerned.
Win-Multiplication, the amount you win is multiplied by a random number comprised between 2 and 10.
During a free spin, you can win 10 more if you get 3 Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. They are re-triggerable.
You might have guessed, behing its old-fashioned but pleasant looks, Witches and Wizards is quite an original and resolutely modern game with its random progressive jackpot and its eventful free spins. Its free spins and their special features remind us a bit of the great Thunderstruck 2.
