Witchcraft Academy is one of the slot machines that you’re going to find at NetEnt casinos. It’s one of the more attractive slot machines in their collection, which is saying a lot, and it is themed around a witchcraft academy obviously, with two main characters called Earthan and Efora, both present on the reels.
You have a 5x4 reels slot here, but with the usual 20 active lines employed on them. The game’s best features will pay up to $20,000. Speaking of features, those will give you access to free spins, multipliers, wilds, scatters and overlay wild reels.
Betting and Prizes
In the usual NetEnt way of doing things, the slot machine will include 20 fixed lines, where the level of the bet will be changed by the player as needed. A maximum number of 10 coins will be used for the wager, while the denomination for them will start at $0.01 and reach $1 if allowed. You can spend up to $10 for one line and up to $200 for all of them.
There are several good rewards that you could get in this game. One of them is through a regular combination, which will pay at most $4,000 in the base game. Get it during free spins, and it could have a value of $8,000 thanks to multipliers. The bonus feature can apparently offer up to $20,000 on its own. There is a 96.38% average RTP in this game, so it looks like it’s going to be a normal slot machine in this regard.
Witchcraft Academy Slot Features
Four out of five reels are allowed to host wild symbols, fairly easy to recognize when they pop up, since they use the W logo, in red against a gold background. The only reel that doesn’t get the wild symbol is the 3rd one. This is useful as a substitute only, meaning that it can replace a missing symbol, provided that it first landed in the position where that other symbol was needed. It will not be a replacement for a scatter.
The Elements Bonus is activated in the game through another symbol, one that has the image of a Bonus logo. At least three are going to have to appear in the game, before you can gain entry into this feature. This is a scatter, so only the total number of times it appears matters.
So far, the game has been fairly easy to forget, but things are about to change in the Elements Bonus. The bonus game gives you Coin Win symbols, Armour Guard symbols and scatters that will provide you with free spins, multipliers, and overlay wild reels.
First, you choose Efora or Earthan, the two main characters, to shoot an elemental spell at one of the columns. You get as many shots as there were triggering symbols for the feature. Each shot will give you 1 to 4 elements, at random.
If you get a coin win, then you receive 10x to 2,000x the line bet from each one. If an Armour Guard is hit, then the symbols next to it are going to explode with it. At most, the feature can give you payouts of up to $20,000.
You can also get free spins, multipliers and overlay wilds for the reels 1 and 5. The free spins can be retriggered.
Theme & Design
Witchcraft Academy is a beautifully designed game, which was created with two main characters, a wizard and a witch, both young and attending the academy together. The symbols also include card suits made out of diamonds, dragons and owls.
Witchcraft Academy delivers the usual high quality design that NetEnt puts out in almost all their slots, at least one of its features being just as interesting.
