SpellCraft is a 5 reel, 27 payline slot from Playson. Available to play on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 27p to £81 per spin, it has 3 bonus features in total. With a spooky theme, you can benefit from a 6th reel (Ghost Reel) in the free spins feature, a pick me round and stacked wilds.
Featuring 3 witches who put a spell on you, it has a Halloween feel to it – it’s set in a spooky forest and has a superb soundtrack. On the reels, you will see playing cards which are all themed, amulets, potions, pumpkins, black cats, voodoo dolls and cauldrons. The highest value symbol is the spell book which rewards you with 600 times your line stake for 6 on a payline.
I did mention 6 on a payline – that’s because SpellCraft has a Ghost Reel feature which is played when 3 or more witch scatters appear anywhere on the reels. It’s a free spins game with 1 more reel added – 3 scatters give you 9 free spins with 4 giving you 12 free spins. If you’re lucky enough to get 5, you will receive 15 free spins. If you see 3 or more scatters during the feature, you will win additional free spins with up to 30 in total possible.
There’s also a Power of Three feature which is triggered when the wild, scatter and bonus symbols appear on the reels simultaneously – basically, wilds expand on the reels they appear on. In the base game, wilds only appear on the middle 3 reels whilst during the Ghost Reel feature, they appear on the first 4 reels.
Finally, there’s a Bonus Game feature which is played when you get 3 or more blonde witch symbols – it’s a pick me game with 4 rounds in which you need to pick 1 of the 5 objects. You can reveal coins which give you cash prizes of up to 4 times your stake, 2x multipliers, ingredients which fills the Felicitous potion to win 30 times your stake and disclosure – this opens all objects in the round to give you all prizes on offer.
I really like SpellCraft as it looks and sounds fantastic – as for the features, my biggest wins have come in the Ghost Reel feature due to the possibility of getting 6 of a kind winning combinations as well as wilds on 4 reels. I found it to be a medium variance game and one I recommend playing at Halloween. However, I do prefer Dracula’s Family (by Playson) which is higher variance.
