The first unusual number in Witchcraft Academy slot game is a four, in the five-by-four reel setup. Across those reels there are 20 pay lines, delivering a huge top prize of 160,000 coins. The game is a medium-to-high variance game, which means fewer but bigger prizes, and a theoretical return to player of 96.38% that’s fairly average in current market conditions.
Betting is from 0.2 coins to 200 coins, usually 20p to £200 in UK casino sites, but check the pay-out limits, coin values and prize limits in the site you’re using.
As you’d expect from NetEnt and this theme this game delivers a really smooth look that owes a little to the Shrek family of films.
With a slick animated fairy tale feel and great symbols against a library backdrop, this game is true to its theming and true to NetEnt’s continued high-quality work.
Played in very much the same way as most NetEnt games you’ll soon have the operation of this video slot down pat.
It’s when you hit the two bonuses that the big wins are likely to come. The base game has wilds and scatters, and the scatter triggers an Element Shots round that randomly puts high-value symbols on a set of pillars, with cash prizes and lots of extra wilds, multipliers and free spins up for grabs.
Free spins are awarded, in sets of five up to a maximum of 20, by further scatters from within the first, Element Shots, bonus round. Free spins are considered unlocked by winning the round, so you can trigger more with more scatters on the reels.
The top of the pay table is our two heroes. They pay 15, 50, and 200-times stake for, Efora the Witch, and 30, 80, and 400 for her student mate (a warlock?), Earthan.
Pay-outs open with card symbols paying 5, 10, and 40-times stake.
The Final Verdict
Is there a better-looking game than this anywhere on the market? We’re not sure if we’ve seen it if there is.
Fantastic looks, plus real depth to gameplay courtesy of a bonus round that delivers some real adrenaline shots and a touch of magic if you hit those big free spins.
It’s a shame you can’t trigger free spins from directly within the base game, but, that aside, Witchcraft Academy slot deserves to finish top of its class for looks, feel, player experience and that magical something extra! Check it out at your favourite online slots site now.
