With a bit of a retro feel to the visuals of the Spellcast slot, it’s a little different to the modern, flashy video slots such as Gonzo’s Quest or Vikings. Instead, it gives us an element of mystery. Suspense, even. What spell will be cast next onto the game? There’s one way to find out, and that is to have a spin.
Create Your Bet
There are a few components of your bet which you can adjust, to tailor it to the way in which you want to play.
In the Spellcast slot, there are a total of 20 paylines. By clicking on the bet lines button below the reels, you can select how many of these paylines you want to keep active while you play.
The coin value starts at a minimum of 2p per payline and can be increased up to a maximum of 50p. Whichever coin value you choose, this will be multiplied by the number of paylines you have chosen to have in play.
If you want to add a little extra magic to your stake, you also have the option to increase the bet level. This is usually automatically set to 1, meaning that there is one coin on each payline. It can be increased up to four per payline, if you wish. This will, of course, be multiplied by the coin bet, creating your total bet.
Your total bet will be displayed just below the spin button, so you can make sure you’ve set your amount your way before you get this magical spooktacular game underway.
The highest payouts will come when you manage to land five identical symbols along an active payline, but you can also win by landing three, or even two, matching symbols from left to right. Let us explain.
The highest value symbol in the Spellcast slot is the haunted house with the witch soaring past the moon. Top prizes for five of a kind can be up to 750 times the line bet, but you can also be awarded for matching just two or more on a payline.
Next up is the scary-looking character stirring a fiery cauldron. Dare to land five of these on a payline and you could be awarded 500 times your line bet, with smaller prizes for matching two or more from the left-hand side toward the right.
The glowing yellow potion will award you for landing three or more across a payline. This magic substance is worth 500 times the line bet for landing five of them across the reels.
To make a potion, you need a spell-book and a wand. These two items are the last of the high-value symbols, offering top prize payouts of 250 times the line bet for landing five identical symbols on an active line.
Lower-value symbols in the Spellcast slot are the card values, of which, top prizes range from 100 to 200 times the line bet.
We’ve got two classic features with a freaky twist which can be activated by some lucky landings.
The Wizard wearing the black hat is the wild symbol. Wilds can substitute for any of the standard symbols to help build and extend winning lines, and in turn, boost your winnings.
Plus, any wins containing a wizarding wild are doubled. Even better!
There is also another way to win with the wild. If you land two or more of them on a payline, just as you would with the standard symbols, you can be awarded for that, too. Top payouts for the maximum of five wilds across an active payline is 10,000 times the line bet!
If you are wild about wilds, then you may also enjoy a spin with Wild Bazaar.
Crystal Ball Scatter
A glowing crystal ball at the hands of a medium is the Spellcast slot’s scatter symbol. Land three or more of these symbols anywhere on the reels in a single spin to be awarded 15 free spins.
Any wins you land during your free spins will be tripled! There is also potential to re-trigger extra spins if you have another lucky landing during the feature.
As well as free spins, you can also trigger wins by collecting two or more scatter symbols. Scatter wins pay the total bet times the multiplier, not just the bet line. If you land five crystal balls in one spin, you could be looking at 500 times your total bet in return.
One of NetEnt’s older games, there is a unique look and feel to the Spellcast slot and it suits the theme of the game. With spellbinding prizes up for grabs as well as the two special features to be triggered, there is lots on offer in this game.
The retro feel of this game tied in with the eerie drips of water and echoes that soundtrack the slot, it’s a great magical game.
RTP of the Spellcast slot is 95.98% and it has a low to medium variance.
