Lucky Witch Slots Game from Microgaming
The designers at Microgaming didn’t go in a stereotypical direction when creating the Lucky Witch video slots game; instead of a warty old crone, their witch is a busty, sexy redhead wearing a daring corset. The game features the bright, colourful graphics, insistent theme music and attention-grabbing special FX that have become Microgaming’s hallmarks.
Lucky Witch plays on five reels, each displaying three symbols, and a total of 15 bet lines, all 15 of which must be played on every spin. Players can choose from a range of bets-per-line options, starting at 0.15 and going as high as 4.00. As usual, a win requires three-of-a-kind or more, in sequence, beginning on the first reel. The object is to achieve bonus rounds that allow players to uncover the witch’s secret spells.
Spooky Lucky Witch Symbols
As Microgaming does with many of their slots games, Lucky Witch dispenses with the poker symbols completely; all the symbols on the Lucky Witch reels are theme-related. There’s a Halloween pumpkin, a black cat, a stone gargoyle, a spell-reading owl, a dragon-like lizard, exotic gemstones, a bubbling cauldron, a potion being prepared, a scroll of spells, and the Lucky Witch herself.
The Lucky Witch game logo is the icon that performs the wild function, but unlike most wilds, in Lucky Witch it does not substitute for any symbol. The wild can only complete winning bet lines that contain the lizard, owl, cat or the Lucky Witch herself. It does double all wins that the wild is part of, however, and the games numerous bonus features help ensure that the limited application of the wild doesn’t affect the player’s chances to make big wins.
Several Attractive Bonuses
Lucky Witch presents players with a number of bonus options. There is a blue potion symbol: at least three potion symbols in any position trigger a bonus of 13 free spins. All five potion symbols on a bet line win a total of 60,000 coins. Three more potion bottles during free spins will trigger another 13 free spins. The scatter symbol is a bubbling cauldron inscribed with the words “mystery bonus”; if this icon appears on reels one, three and five simultaneously, it triggers one of four bonus options:
– The Magic Potion Bonus Game; the Lucky Witch appears in an archway, with a variety of potions on the shelves behind her. Players must choose potions, avoiding the green skull and crossbones, to rack up wins.
– The Secret Vault Bonus Game; the players again has to choose from a range of symbols, trying to find the one that will unlock a treasure vault.
– The Pumpkin Bonus Game; players must choose three out of five pumpkins, hoping to take bonus wins before the end of the bonus game is triggered by the “wrong” pumpkin.
– The Spell Book Bonus Game; this time, the player chooses one of three books. The right book will score a multiplier of 52X the line bet.
The wide variety of bonus features in Lucky Witch, between them, offer opportunities for wins as high as 12,000X the line bet.
