If you're one for horror and think Halloween is the best day - I mean night- of the year, then the Spellcraft slot is the game for you. Behind this magic packed slot are the experienced game developers from Playson. The game is very well executed and filled with everything witchy. In this five reel slot, you will be able to meet three young witches and their cat. The game contains scatters, wilds, an additional ghost reel (once triggered) and 27 fixed pay lines, offering great wins to the lucky winners.
The game's overall look is fantastic, and the purple color scheme really brings the magical and spooky night alive. The game is well suited for everyone, no matter what size their gaming budget is. The bet can be adjusted between a line bet of 0.01 (total bet 0.27) and 4.00 (making the total bet 108.00).
An eerie voice can be heard in the background and the hum of gentle cool breeze takes over as the reels spin. The slot is packed with many icons fitting a witch-themed game. These high-quality icons are well made, very colorful, and the dark background really makes them pop. On the five reels, you will be able to spot three beautiful witches, that also work as the game's special symbols.
The scatter is a beautiful brunette, who will trigger the unique Ghost Reel feature. The ginger is the game's wild and she can substitute all other symbols except the scatter and bonus symbols. The blond witch is the game's bonus symbol, that activates a separate bonus game from the main game.
Winning lines are activated by getting a minimum of three symbols onto adjacent reels from left to right. The symbols that can activate a pay line are a spell book, a voodoo doll, a bubbling cauldron, a scarecrow and a black cat. For smaller wins, you have a green potion, a red pendant, and the familiar symbols from a deck of cards A, K, Q and J.
In addition to activating the Ghost Reel feature, the Scatter will also allow you to spin the reels for free. With three, four or five scatter symbols you unlock 9, 12 or 15 free spins respectively.
By getting three or more bonus symbols (the blond witch) onto the reels, you activate a separate bonus game from the main game. During the start, you are guaranteed a win, which size depends on the number of symbols that triggered the game. Three symbols reward you with 2x your total bet, four symbols 5x your total bet and with five symbols you get a reward worth 10x your total bet.
The bonus game has four rounds in it, during which you are to pick one out of the five objects presented. Behind each object you can find coins (that pay 2, 3 or 4 total bets), a multiplier (that can increase the current win by 2), a hidden ingredient that helps you fill a tube of potion (once the tube is filled, you win 30x your bet), and lastly the disclosure that will open up all the objects so you can gather all the hidden bonuses for yourself. The bonus game ends once all four rounds are done, or the potion is finished.
The Ghost Reel is activated with three or more Scatters. During this feature, you'll have free spins and an additional 6th reel for your disposal. The pay lines are activated starting from either the first (ghost) or the second reel.
The Power of Three is a fun feature that is activated when one scatter, one wild and one bonus symbol are present on the five reels in the main game simultaneously. During this feature, the wild will expand and cover the reel it is stationed on, which in turn offers a chance to win big. In the main game the wild can appear only on reels 2, 3 and 4, while during the Ghost Reel feature, it can appear on the reels 3, 4, 5 and 6.
Play Spellcraft and let the magic flow through your veins! The overall feel and ambiance of the game are well executed. The three girls are happy to help you create potions and cast spells on people, but being witches, there's always a catch. You will have to be able to pay the girls, in order for them to help. With the volatility being more or less set at a medium, the pays can be big, but scarce.
The three unique features make the game enjoyable, and the various bonuses the game has to offer makes it also very lucrative, granted you get lucky. If you want to enjoy a night in the woods and learn yourself a spell or two, you should definitely check out the Spellcraft slot.
