Witchcraft Academy is a NetEnt-powered video slot with a pretty popular theme of wizards, witches and magic. And if there is anything in this game, it’s magic. Starting with the abundance of features and bonuses it offers, to the outstanding graphics, seamless animations, an intriguing soundtrack and, finally, generous payouts it delivers, Witchcraft Academy provides an engaging and interesting gaming experience. The reels are set within a library, stacked with chances to deliver massive prizes in the Free Spins Feature, during the Element Bonus Game or with the help of Wild Substitutions.
The game is played at 20 fixed paylines placed on a 5x4 grid. The interface is easy to navigate, so press + or - to set the number of coins per line going from 1 to 10. The next thing you will need to do is to select the coin size which ranges from $0.01 to $1.00. Adjusting the bet level will directly affect your total bet, which can be from $0.20 to $200 per spin. Hit the Spin button to start the game, or enter the Autoplay menu to set the number of automatic spins, so that you can relax while the game continues to play. One of the great things about this game is that the symbols will deliver payouts when in succession starting anywhere on the payline.
Two main characters of the slot Earthan and Efora provide the most lucrative prizes of 400 and 200 coins respectively for 5 of a kind. Dragon and Owl symbols offer 100 and 80 coins correspondingly when 5 land on a payline. Low-value symbols are represented by playing card suits designed as potion vials, each awarding 40 coins if 5 appear on a payline. The game’s Wild lands on the reel 1, 2 4 and 5 contributing to winning combinations and replacing all symbols but Scatter and Bonus Spin symbol. Scatter appears on all the reels and when 3 of these hit, the Elements feature is activated.
Once the Elements feature starts, a new screen will take you down to a secret chamber where you should choose Earthan or Efora to cast a spell and provide you with various riches. There are no reels in this game, only 3 icons are present: Coin Win, Armour Guard and Scatter. Depending on which symbols are hit, you can benefit from a coin prize going up to 200x the bet level. The spell can also destroy a number of positions awarding prizes if it reaches the Armour Guard symbol. The most desirable scenario is for the spell to hit 3 Scatters and unlock 5 free spins during which different features will be in play. You can receive free spins with Wild covering the reel 1 or 5, 5 additional spins or a 2x multiplier that can help you reach the top prize of 160,000 coins. Each feature can be unlocked only once. What’s more, if Bonus Spin symbols appear during the round, up to 20 extra free spins will be awarded.
This action-packed video slot will certainly keep you involved and eager to trigger its bonuses which hide huge payouts, backed up by an RTP of 96.38%.
