Microgaming has released Lucky Witch just in time for Halloween. Boasting 5 reels 15 paylines Lucky Witch offers high quality laminating graphics along with spooky sound effects as the reels spin and the perfect ingredients needed for the witch to stir up the lucky concoction.
Lucky Witch provides fun, yet spooky music, along with suitably eerie sound effects and animations to add to the amusement factor. Meanwhile, the symbols used in this 5-reel, 15-payline slot include black cats, stone gargoyles, pumpkins, and of course, the stunning witch herself.
Symbols in the game
While the lower-value symbols are cobweb-covered playing card icons, you will collect higher prizes when a crystal ball, broomstick, black cat and a few other witch-themed images appear. Landing her hat in enough places triggers a richer free spins round. Spin the reels of the Lucky Witch video slot and you could claim prizes of up to 27,000 times the amount staked on each payline, magically transforming your bankroll.
Stakes and Rewards
Play with stakes as low as 0.10 per spin. The gothic-inspired symbols all appear on reels set against a suitably creepy backdrop, where a bare tree with bats flying around it stands out against a full moon. The smaller, but as a result, usually more frequently-occurring wins come from the playing card symbols. The number 9 pays out twice the line stake when it stops on reels one and two, while full runs of five are worth 100x. The 10, J and Q icons are worth the same, but will need to be seen on at least three reels, while the K and A are the top card symbols, returning prizes of up to 125x.
A crystal ball and the cauldron pay high limits of 250x the per line stake, and you claim up to 400x when the broomstick lands across a payline. The most valuable standard symbols are the black cat and the castle. This cute pet and creepy house are each worth twice the line bet when seen on reels one and two, then 25x, 50x and 750x when also seen on reels three, four and five.
Wild and Scatter Symbol
The witch is wild, meaning that she’s able to act as any standard symbol if she lands in the right places to bridge gaps in a run of matching icons. If you have three or four of the same symbol across the game and the witch is seen on the right-side reels, then Hey Presto! she will extend the line and you get paid a higher prize. Whatever magic she works, the base value of any line completed by the witch is doubled.
She’s also worth a huge 9,000x the line bet when she appears right across a payline without substituting for anything else. The only symbol that she can’t act as is the hat, so let’s see how this works.
Not only is the hat a scatter symbol that pays out in any positions, but it’s also worth up to 5,000x when any five or more are seen at once. You’ll need three on the reels to trigger a free spins bonus round, where 15 extra games play out without you needing to stake any of your own cash. What’s more, any wins during these bonus games will be tripled from their usual values.
It gives you the possibility of landing some frighteningly huge rewards and if our bewitching witch lands across a payline during the free spins, you claim a truly magical prize of 27,000x the line bet.
