Witches are hardly a new addition to slot game fare. Some are more helpful than others, true, and some hail from a more mystical realm. So, will we have a cartoon witch in the self-titled game from Booongo or will it be something more dramatic? At first glance, it would seem to be the latter. When we load the game ready to play, we can see a woodland setting. The detail in this game is impressive, with gnarled tree trunks and vines winding their way around the set of five reels. There are 30 lines included – fixed in this case – and you can expect to see some strange frogs and other characters on the reels too.
The Witch slot game does include a scatter, which has helpfully been labeled. The witch herself can appear as an expanding wild, making quite an impression when she does so. She is good for appearances on all the reels and will substitute for everything except the scatter. Furthermore, if the wild covers any of the five reels in the game, any princesses appearing elsewhere will also change into wilds. That’s a neat feature and one that is worth looking for.
As you might expect, three scatters are required to unlock some free spins. The scatter also becomes part of a respin mode whenever it appears. This means there is a better chance of getting enough of them to unlock the free games. You will win five, 10, or 15 of them for three, four, or five of the scattered icons. Throw in a respin every time you win something, and The Witch turns into a captivating and magical game.
