Join fire, water and nature witches and try and conjure up a jackpot in the magically-themed Wild Spells slot. Created by Pragmatic Play, it’s a 5 reel, 25 payline game that comes with stacked wilds and free spins complete with a variety of added wild extras. Play from between 25p and £125 per spin.

Like most slots from Pragmatic Play, the design here is rather well done – set against a mountainous backdrop, the purple reels include lower value playing cards alongside candles, bottles of potions, a book of spells and the fire, water and nature witches. The best of these is the fire witch who awards up to 8 times your stake if you land 5 on a payline. Those numbers sound a little skinny but all of the witches can land fully stacked.

As can the black cat which is the game’s wild – it replaces all other symbols apart from the scatter. The crystal ball is that scatter. When that hits on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin, you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature – you’ll then be offered the pick of 3 free spin and wild combinations:

  • 20 free spins with the nature witch becoming wild on reels 2, 3 and 4
  • 10 free spins with the nature and water witches becoming wild on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5
  • 5 free spins with the nature, water and fire witches becoming wild on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5

Land 3 crystal ball scatters and the same round will be triggered again. For example, if you originally chose the 10 free spins with the nature and water witches wild, you’d receive the same allocation again.

Wild Spells also offers a chance to win 1 of 3 jackpot prizes. To trigger you’ll need to land stacked witch symbols on at least 3 successive reels. 3, 4 or 5 stacks will get you the Minor, Major or Grand jackpot. Their values are fixed to give you 50, 200 and 1,250 times your stake respectively.

Wild Spells is an enjoyable game. The sound and visuals have a real magical feel and are a nice match for the theme. The base game action is solid enough but the real potential comes from the added wilds in the bonus rounds. The free spins aren’t the easiest to trigger but they can serve up to impressive rewards.

I would always opt for the 5 free spins option as you get 3 wilds on 4 reels. If you’re after some volatile action, then these witches can certainly cook up some Wild Spells. If you like magic themed slots, Playtech’s Halloween Fortune II and Playson’s SpellCraft are recommended.
