Ozwin’s Jackpots is an Yggdrasil Gaming progressive jackpot slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines that can be played from 20p to £40 per spin across all devices (including smartphones and tablets). With a sorcery theme, it offers you 5 different jackpots, Jackpot Free Spins and a Spellbook Bonus Game feature where you win cash prizes.
With an enchanting and mysterious feel to it, Ozwin’s Jackpots looks fantastic – first thing you will notice is the soundtrack which could easily be used in a Disney feature film. With cartoon style graphics, symbols on the reels include hearts, diamonds, clubs and spades, potion bottles, owls, compasses and Ozwin himself. The owl is the most valuable symbol giving you 200 times your stake for 5 on a payline.
Ozwin’s Jackpots comes with a Spellbook Bonus Game feature which is played when you get 3 or more Spellbook Bonus symbols in the base game. If you get 4 or 5 to activate it, you will get 50 or 500 times your stake respectively on top of access.
In the feature, you are presented with 18 Spellbooks which contain hidden prizes – you then need to choose Spellbooks which will give you cash prizes or crystals. If you uncover a hidden evil spell though, the feature ends. You can win cash prizes up to 50 times your stake (on each pick), blue, green, purple, red or brown crystals.
The main attraction is the Jackpot Free Spins feature – this can be trigger in 2 ways. You can access if it you collect 5 crystals of the same colour (from the Spellbook Bonus Game feature) or by getting 3 or more free spin symbols simultaneously on a base game spin.
If you collected by getting 3 or more free spin symbols on a base game spin, you will get 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier – 4 or 5 will give you 50 or 500 times your stake as a bonus on top of the 10 free spins. Now, if you gained access to the feature by collecting crystals, the 5 crystals of a particular colour will transform into the 1st orb for the Jackpot collection. You will also get 10 free spins with all wins trebled.
Basically, you can win 1 of 5 jackpots – these are won by completing its corresponding orb collection. There are 5 different coloured orbs (blue, green, purple, red or brown) – if you collect 5 of 1 of them, you will win that jackpot. In order of value, you have the Archmage (red), Wizard (purple), Mystic (blue), Apprentice (green) and Novice (brown) progressive jackpots.
Ozwin’s Jackpots may seem a little complicated but it’s rather simple once you start spinning those reels – the Spellbook Bonus Game feature basically gives you cash prizes or crystals which can then be used in the Jackpot Free Spins feature.
The latter is where the real value is as you get 10 free spins with all wins trebled and you have the chance to win 1 of 5 progressive jackpots by collecting orbs. In terms of the non-jackpot wins, there’s a cool 1,200 times your stake to be won on each spin which is decent.
Overall, Ozwin’s Jackpots is another superb slot from Yggdrasil Gaming that ticks the boxes in terms of design, theme, bonus features and potential for big wins. I recommend you try some of their other slots such as Vikings Go Berzerk and Valley of the Gods which are brilliant in their own right.
