Hope a demonic witch doctor can conjure up a spell in Shaman Spins, a 5 reel, 40 payline slot from Red Tiger Gaming. The highlight of this voodoo-themed game is the Free Spins Bonus feature where you’ll start with 5 free spins. Pick from the rune stones to add more free spins, sticky wilds and multipliers. Play on all devices from between 40p and £200 per spin.
Shaman Spins is played using a 3x4x4x4x3 reel set. Those reels are set against a dense jungle backdrop and flanked by a pair of stone totems. You’ll see A to 10 royal values spinning around the reels. They’re joined by higher value symbols that match the primitive theme. They include bottles of potion, daggers and white birds.
The mysterious big cat is the best of the standard symbols, paying up to 5 times your stake per payline. Helping you to create those winners is the shaman symbol which is the wild – this replaces everything apart from the free spins scatter and offers payouts of up to 25 times your stake per payline.
That free spins scatter can land on reels 1, 3 and 5 only. Land 3 of them on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Free Spins Bonus feature which is where things can get much more interesting. For starters you’ll be awarded 5 free spins. Before they begin, you’ll be offered a selection of rune stones to pick from.
Behind the stones lurk up to 12 extra free spins, a massive sticky wild, 8 standard sized sticky wilds and multipliers that can boost payouts by up to 5x. You’ll then go on and play your free spins with any extra goodies you accumulated from the rune stone picks.
Look out too for the Wild Shower Bonus feature which can trigger at random on any spin. Here a waterfall covers the middle 3 reels and can potentially deliver extra stacked wilds.
The design in Shaman Spins is impressively done and has a decidedly creepy feel. The best action comes from the pair of feature rounds, both of which offer some decent potential. The free spins aren’t the easiest to trigger but land a good stack of rune stone extras and Shaman Spins can conjure up a pretty enticing spell. If you like the theme, Playtech’s Maji Wilds is worth playing.
