Wild Witches is one of the several ‘Wild’ themed video slots from NetEnt. It features 5 reels and 20 adjustable paylines. While the title might evoke horror and terrifying creatures, in reality the main characters are represented by 6 scantily-clad exotic witches, and some other hardly menacing animals and objects. It’s a mixture of ghostly and fairy.
As we’ve come to expect from one of the world’s leading suppliers, graphics, animations and sound effects are top notch. Set against the backdrop of a spectral landscape, the reels are enclosed with gnarled wood while the payline digits on the sides are superimposed on potion bottles of different colours. An eerie track breezes quietly in the background, accompanied by sighs and owls hooting. Suspenseful music plays during wins, while snaky, cackling witch sounds set the atmosphere in the Free Spins round.
Adjustable paylines make this an affordable choice for low stakes players but also suitable for mid rollers, given a maximum bet of $/€/£80 per spin. Though the slot doesn’t have a progressive jackpot and has no bonus round that opens on a new screen, the highest payout in the base game is quite remarkable. Other game symbols give out some decent rewards, but players will relish the chance to win the top prize of 1,500 times the amount of their initial bet.
This game features 2 wild symbols, the Witches Spell Book and the phenomenal Witchy Wild. Each can replace all game symbols except for the scatter and can complete winning combinations. The former can appear anywhere on the reels and will double payouts, while the latter will appear on the middle reel and offer quadruple payouts for winning combinations. The Scatter, represented by a cauldron, awards instant wins when 2 or more appear on the reels, with up to 500 times the total bet with 5 scatters. Three or more scatters will take players directly to the free spins round.
The highest payout during the base game is a quite hefty 10,000 coins, which is awarded when 5 Witches Spell Book symbols appear on a payline. Despite the lack of a progressive jackpot, players can still win up to 120,000 coins in the slot’s free spin round.
The bonus feature in this slot is represented by the Free Spins round, which is triggered when 3 or more scatters appear on the reels in a single spin. Players will be awarded between 10 and 30 free spins depending on the number of scatters (2-5), and in this round all payouts are tripled. Should three scatters appear also during a free spin, the round is retriggered and chances to collect bigger cash prizes increased (although payouts are not trebled in a ‘retriggered’ free spins round).
