Can a pair of sorceresses help you conjure up a magic hat full of coins? That’s the goal in Bewitched, a 5 reel, 15 payline slot from iSoftBet. It comes with a bonus feature where you can win up to 60 free spins with all payouts doubled. You can also win big courtesy of the progressive jackpot. Hop on your metaphorical broom from 15p to £150 per spin.
The first choice you have to make is whether to let the blue or red sorceress guide you through the game – there’s little to choose between them and you can change at any time during the game. The wise old owl is the wild – as well as substituting for all other symbols apart from the bonus and scatter it can award payouts of 10, 25, 100, 1,000 or 2,000 coins.
The key to unlocking the big prizes comes from the Bonus symbol (the bearded wizard who looks like Merlin). Land 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels to trigger the Bonus feature – you’ll be taken to Merlin’s lab where you have to choose from a selection of potions which will reveal cash prizes, free spins or the progressive jackpot.
You can also earn some free spins via the scatter symbol – land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels and you’ll be awarded 2, 3, 4 or 5 free spins and prizes of 2, 50, 100 or 200 times your stake. If you’ve chosen the right sorceress though, these can increase to 6, 9, 12 or 15 free spins as well as a cash prize of 10, 250, 500 or 1,000 times your total stake. All wins are subject to a 2x multiplier with the feature available to be retriggered meaning there’s up to 60 free spins possible.
There are decent jackpots on offer from the standard symbols too – payouts of 500, 750 and 1,000 coins are on offer if you land 5 of the frog, sorceress and castle symbols respectively. Lower value symbols include a grinning moon, pixie boots, a quill and ink and a crystal ball alongside the standard playing card symbols. The cartoon-style graphics are very well designed and feature flurries of fantastical stars on each spin.
The neat design and range of features make this a very playable slot. If the sorceresses work their magic, the payouts on offer in this fantasy-themed slot can certainly leave you feeling Bewitched. If you like witches, Playtech’s Halloween Fortune is a must.
