Wizards And Witches In Microgaming Online Slots

Right from children’s fairy tales to Harry Potter, wizards and witches have been held in fascination. These magical creatures are popular on online slots as well. This article looks at two somewhat unusual video slots from Microgaming with this theme. They can be played at online casinos like All Slots, Jackpot City and Platinum Play.

You will not get a video slot that is simpler in construction than Winning Wizards. It is in the standard 5 reels and 3 rows format, but has only 5 paylines. One of the compensatory factors for the few paylines is that winning combinations pay from left to right and from right to left. The other compensatory factor is that two of the symbols award very high payouts. Five wizard symbols on an active payline pay 10,000 times the line bet. Five wizard’s staff symbols award a payout of 5,000 times the line bet. The other symbols on the reels are spell book, potion, amulet and ornately crafted playing card icons from A to 10. All these symbols pay comparatively very low amounts imparting very high volatility to the slot game. All symbols are bold, bright and visually appealing. There is no wild or scatter symbol and no bonus feature. You can wager 1 coin per payline with the coin size varying from $0.25 to $10.00.

Witches Wealth has a more contemporary structure. It is in the 5x3 format with 20 selectable paylines. The bespectacled witch is the wild symbol and it also awards the top line payout of 6,000 coins. The owl awards a payout of 2,000 times the line bet for a winning combination of five symbols. All the symbols are thematic and include spell books, potions, chalice, eyeballs and spook. The bat awards scatter payouts. Mr Twinkle the cat is the bonus symbol. Three or four of them scattered on the reels triggers the Spinning Wand feature. You have to spin the wand and you win the bonus prize indicated. The spinning wand can lead you to the higher level bonus game called Flying Rescue. You can directly activate this level by getting five Mr Twinkle symbols on the reels. You have to dodge falling objects on the second screen in order to try and rescue Mr Twinkle collecting bonuses along the way. If you manage to rescue Mr Twinkle, then the bonuses collected will be doubled. If you reach home safely after the rescue then the bonuses will be tripled.
