Wild Cauldron Theme/Symbols

Wild Cauldron has a fantasy feel as you step into a witch’s lair – with cartoon style graphics, you will see the floating symbols appear above the witch’s bubbling cauldron. Beautifully designed, low value symbols include blue moons, green swirls, pink eyes, red pentagrams, orange hazard signs and yellow lightning bolts – all upon grey stone blocks.

Then there are 5 monsters – the pinkish horned monster is the most rewarding symbol giving you 0.6, 1.5, 2.5 or 3.5 times your stake for 3, 4, 5 or 6 in combination. Being a 4,096 ways to win slot game, you can form wins when matching symbols appear anywhere on adjacent reels starting from reel 1.

Win Multiplier feature

You’ll also a see a ‘W’ symbol which is the wild and replaces all symbols bar the bonus scatter – when part of a winning combination, the win multiplier increases by 1. Known as the Win Multiplier feature, the multiplier value can reach up to 7x.

Locking Symbol Tumble feature

When you get a winning combination, the Locking Symbol Tumble feature is triggered. The winning symbols are locked as they accumulate at the bottom of the reels – then all non-winning symbols are removed to allow for new symbols to be added to the reels.

Expanding Ways feature

After every win, the Expanding Ways feature comes into play – the number of ways to win increases as 1 additional row of symbols is added. With up to 8 rows possible, here’s the number of ways to win for each of the row options:

  • 4 rows – 4,096 ways to win (4x4x4x4x4x4)
  • 5 rows – 15,625 ways to win (5x5x5x5x5x5)
  • 6 rows – 46,656 ways to win (6x6x6x6x6x6)
  • 7 rows – 117,649 ways to win (7x7x7x7x7x7)
  • 8 rows – 262,144 ways to win (8x8x8x8x8x8)

If you get a non-winning tumble, the reels revert back to 6x4 in size with 4,096 ways to win.

Free Spins feature

Wild Cauldron also comes with a Free Spins feature – this is played when 4 or more potion bottle bonus scatters appear on the reels. 4, 5 or 6 scatters will reward you with 8, 10 or 12 free spins respectively. During the feature, 2 scatters will give you an additional 2 free spins each time – with no limits.

Both the Locking Symbol Tumble and Expanding Ways features apply meaning consecutive wins/tumbles will lead to 262,144 ways to win. Furthermore, each win involving the wild symbol will increase the win multiplier by 1 – the multiplier can reach as high as 20x for a single free spin.

Wild Cauldron thoughts

The Wild Cauldron slot is well designed and quite simple really – a tumble/cascading reels game, it’s all about getting consecutive winning combinations which increases the number of ways to win and increases the multiplier, up to 7x, when a wild is involved.

Highly volatile, the max payout is 21,199.5 x stake on each free spin – this is more likely to happen when you have an increased win multiplier in the free spins which can reach 20x. With an RTP of 96.09%, you may be waiting a while to trigger the Free Spins feature (1 in 298.75 spins on average) so you need patience.

Overall, a high variance slot with serious win potential – if you like big wins and tumble mechanics, Quickspin’s Golden Glyph offers this as well as plenty of features and multipliers up to 99x in the free spins.
