Spellcast is an online slot production from casino software developer Net Entertainment. The game includes 5 reels and 20 pay lines in a standard slot format that has been brought to life by a ghoulish and magical theme full of witches, wizards and magic spells.
This slot offers both scatter and wild symbols, as well as scatter pays and a free spins feature in which players will receive 15 free spins and tripled wins thanks to a 3x multiplier.
Game Play and Graphics
Spellcast is, as the name describes, based on themes of magic and wizardry, and the game’s graphics have been designed in a way as Canadian keno is designed in. The game is set against a dramatic lightning-streaked blue and purple sky, with a fearsome looking witch to the left of the reels and an equally formidable wizard to the right, who is seen casting a spell over the reels as they spin. The pay table has been kept simple and easy to navigate, and the game’s graphics have a simplistic and cartoonish style to them in keeping with the magical theme.
Any reel symbols that are involved in a winning combination also play their own unique themed sound effects, and when the wizard wild symbol is involved in a win, his eyes will glow red, adding an immersive element to the gameplay. A spooky soundtrack also accompanies the game.
The reel symbols in Spellcast are all related to the theme and feature symbols of magic and enchantment, including a shining spell book, a glowing yellow vial of magic potion, a menacing witch stirring a flaming cauldron, a moonlit castle and a gleaming magic wand. Also included as the game’s lower value symbols are playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, all of which are golden have been styled in a Gothic font.
Spellcast’s wild symbol is the wizard icon. This symbol will substitute for all other symbols on the reels, with the exception of the scatter symbol. The wizard wild symbol is also the game’s jackpot payout symbol, and landing 5 of these wilds on an active pay line will award players the game’s top jackpot of 10,000 coins.
Additionally, all winning combinations involving the wizard wild symbol will be doubled if this symbol acts as a substitute symbol.
The crystal ball serves as the game’s scatter symbol. If 3 or more of these symbols lands anywhere on the reels during the base game, the free spins feature will be activated. 2 or more of these symbols landing on the reels will also award scatter pays, and the scatter does not need to appear on an activated pay line in order to win or activate the free spins feature. If a regular winning combination and a scatter combination appear on the same spin, both combinations will be paid out.
Free Spins Bonus Feature
Once the free spins bonus feature has been activated, players will be awarded 15 free spins with which to play. Any wins won while playing the free spins bonus game will also be subject to a 3x win multiplier.
