There are plenty of wizards doing the rounds in the online slots world but not so many of their female counterparts. iSoftBet has tried to remedy that with the creation of The Best Witch. It’s a 5 reel, 15 payline slot that comes with a pick me feature, up to 30 free spins and a shot at a progressive jackpot. Try and cook up a spell from between 15p and £15 per spin.

This is an iSoftBet powered slot so impressive imagery is a given – the symbols on the reels have a magical feel. Look out for bottles of potions, magic rings, books of spells, bubbling cauldrons, voodoo dolls and mystical gemstones. The shimmering crystal ball is the game’s wild, substituting for everything bar the bonus and scatter symbols.

Land 3 or more of the Bonus symbol to trigger the Bonus feature – here you’ll be taken to a new screen and presented with 24 different cards. Pick 5 of them to reveal cash prizes. If you’re lucky, you’ll find extra picks hidden amongst them too. Find 4 of the black card and you’ll trigger the progressive jackpot.

The Best Witch also comes with a Free Spins feature which is triggered by hitting 2 or more of the scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. First choose either the red or the blue witch before they go into battle. The result of this scrap will determine the number of free spins you’re awarded.

If you pick the loser, you’ll receive 5, 10, 15 or 20 free spins depending on how many scatters triggered the feature. Pick the winning witch though and this increases to 15, 20, 25 or 30 free spins. The winning witch will also turn the triggering scatters into wilds which will remain frozen in place for the free spins.

The Witches Jackpot free spins are a little tricky to get your head round at first but become clear after you’ve hit them a couple of times. It’s a neat little feature which can deliver some hefty rewards if you win the battle and get the frozen wilds in good places. The pick me round comes much more regularly – the rewards on offer aren’t as big but there’s always the carrot of the progressive jackpot dangling!

Calling a slot game The Best Witch (or The Best anything for that matter) is something of a hostage to fortune. The moniker is deserved in this case. Matching quality features with superb design, iSoftBet have delivered a cracking little slot here. Get lucky with those features and these witches can bubble up a tempting haul of treasure. If you like the witch theme, I highly recommend Playtech’s Halloween Fortune.
