Meet Myrtle, your friendly neighbourhood witch. Unlike some other, less reputable, members of her trade, she's not inclined to black magic, voodoo or hexes, only occasional mischief. As you can see, the hidden world of magic and sorcery is the theme of this fun, carefree and exciting slot by Red Rake Gaming. The presentation is really very well done, with charming cartoonish graphics and frisky musical score. More importantly, Myrtle's bag of charms is hiding plenty interesting and profitable bonus features. When all those separate aspects combine, the result will be nothing less than magical.
Myrtle the Witch is a medium variance slot with 5 reels, 3 rows and 30 paylines. The number of paylines is fixed and cannot be changed. However, before you start rummaging through all the curiosities of Myrtle's magical loft, you can choose the adequate bet size. It ranges from 60 to 195 coins.
So, what kind of curious and magical symbols are hiding in Myrtle's enchanting loft? There are 8 regular symbols in the game. Low paying icons consist of various potions, brews, concoctions and vials. High-value symbols include different nocturnal animals that are usually connected with witches and witchcraft in the popular imagination. They are a wise owl, mean looking raven and mandatory black cat.
Besides those, there are also a couple of special symbols. First of all, a cauldron which is bubbling with some weird green liquid is the Wild symbol. It is the highest paying symbol in the game and can substitute all regular icons, except the Scatter
Scatter is represented as a rather ominous blood moon. Unlike most Scatters, its role isn't to trigger Free Spins mode or some other special feature. Instead, it awards a different number of multipliers. Three Scatters will give you 1x, four 5x and all five 20x multipliers.
Myrtle herself, with her crystal ball and the magical wand, is the bonus symbol of this slot. It actually has a dual role, because it triggers not only the Free Spins mode but also bonus mini-game.
This feature is activated by landing at least three Myrtle bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. Of course, the more symbols you manage to land, the more Free Spins you'll get. Three will award 8, four 10 and five 12 Free Spins.
Also, during Free Spins mode, you'll be able to reap the benefits of another feature. Myrtle may show up and make your life easier by changing some of the regular icons with Wild spellbook symbols. They act as regular Wilds but appear exclusively during the Free Spins.
These crystal ball symbols may land anywhere on the reels. When that happens, they will randomly change into some other symbol. They always come at least in pairs and transform into matching symbols, so you can expect some nice combos with this feature.
In this original mini-game, you'll get the opportunity to personally acquaint yourself with the contents of a real witch's pantry. You'll pick various items from Myrtle's shelves, which can award you cash, Free Spins, multipliers for Free Spins and additional picks. This bonus feature is activated same as Free Spins, by landing Myrtle bonus symbols. Depending on Myrtle bonus symbols you manage to land, you can get up to 5 picks for this game.
Myrtle the Witch is a slot with many positive traits. It boasts lovely and cartoonist graphics, that will allow you to familiarise yourself in the best possible way with the world of magic and witchcraft. Its atmosphere is perfectly balanced, with just the right amount of mystery, excitement and fun. That's why all those who play Myrtle the Witch can expect a truly bewitching experience.
Another important thing is gameplay, and Myrtle certainly has lots to offer in that department too. This slot is simply teeming with various fun and profitable magic-related features. To sum it up, if you're fond of mysteries, tales of witches, their spells and mischiefs this is just the slot for you.
