Wisps is a hypnotic, gentle looking, space themed slot powered by iSoftBet. Set against a deep interstellar backdrop, this nicely designed 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot comes with win both ways technology as well as a bonus feature that delivers 15 free spins with bouncing or spiral wilds. Play from between 50p and £25 per spin.
Set against a lush, purple backdrop, the symbols on show in Wisps are bright and bold. Joining the lower value symbols from A to 9 are a quintet of swirling wisps. We’re imaging they’re modelled on some kind of celestial event such as a supernova (or maybe they’re just pretty to look at!). Whatever they are, they’re very nicely done. The shimmering orb is the top payer of the standard symbols. Land 5 for a payout of 40 times your total stake.
The yellow and red yin and yang style wisp is the wild – this substitutes for everything apart from the scatter and the transformer. Winning combinations can be formed via the traditional left to right mode or using win both ways technology. There is also left to right transformer mode and is decided at random.
The transformer is the worm hole style symbol – when it lands on the middle reel in left to right transformer mode, all the low value playing card symbols will transform into the same symbol with a new payout following.
The shining butterfly style wisp is the scatter – land 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels for a payout of 5, 10 or 15 times your total stake. You’ll also trigger the Free Spins feature and be given 15 free spins. Before the free spins play out, you’ll have the pick of 2 added extras. Opt for bouncing wilds and between 1 and 5 random symbols will turn wild on that spin. Choose spiral wilds and 1, 2 or 3 reels will become totally wild on each spin.
Wisps has a dreamy, ambient feel, helped by the soothing soundtrack that backs the on screen action. Don’t mistake laid back with boring though. The 243 ways to win game engine offers plenty of winning opportunities. Likewise, the free spins where the 2 wilds extras can get things moving quickly.
The feature isn’t the easiest to trigger though. iSoftbet is best known for it’s glossy, branded content. In Wisps they’ve shown they can do something a little more innovative. If you like simple, hypnotic action then Wisps is a slot to consider. It reminds me a little of NetEnt’s Starburst which isn’t a bad thing.
