Witches Charm Slot by EGT Review
The Witches Charm slot machine invites you to collect bonuses and form winning combinations on five reels and 15 lines. EGT has prepared free spins for collecting the Scatter symbols, a double win feature for combinations with the Wild symbol and a chance to risk winnings in the double-or-nothing game.
Since the Witches Charm slot is available in the demo version, the special in-game currency, credits, is used in the game. They are available in your account as the slot loads and they are updated when the page is reloaded. The largest payout of 200,000 credits is awarded for five Wild symbols, when playing with the maximum bet.
Rules of the game
Before starting the Witches Charm game, select the active lines and set the bet. The slot offers five game options:
- 1 line
- 5 lines
- 7 lines
- 10 lines
- 15 lines
You can switch between lines by clicking the numerical icons on both sides of the reels. Also, the number of actually activated lines is displayed.
Click the buttons at the bottom of the screen to select the bet per line. You can place from 1 to 300 credits per line. Keep in mind that once the bet is selected, the reels start spinning immediately. Therefore, it is better to adjust the active lines first. The number of lines and the bet form the total bet per spin. This exact amount will be deducted from your account when you click the Bet button.
The combinations are counted from left to right. Identical symbols have to be on the neighbouring reels of one active line. The exception is the Scatter symbols that earn you rewards, regardless of what reels or lines they landed.
The win is calculated, based on the bet per line. If you open the pay table (the 'i' icon), you can see what payout is awarded for each combination. Note that the size of the win is displayed in credits. When the tab with the pay table is open, you can switch between bets and the number of lines to see how the payout increases or decreases. The Scatter symbols have a special formula for calculating the reward: the total bet is multiplied by the factor of the symbols. The more active lines there are and the higher the bet per line is, the bigger the win for a combination with the Scatter symbol.
You can start the reelspin in two modes — manually and automatically. You launch one spin of the reels by clicking the bet button. If you use the Autoplay feature (an icon with two arrows and a triangle in the centre), the reels will be activated automatically with the selected bet and the number of lines.
Symbols and payouts of the Witches Charm slot
The Witches Charm slot machine has two special symbols that earn you not only payouts in credits but also bonuses. You can find out their brief description in the pay table and the more detailed information is in the Help menu.
The Wild symbol is an image of the magic ball, which can replace one or more regular symbols when it lands on the reels. This lets you form more combinations or increase the number of symbols in the already lined up combinations. Each combination with the Wild symbol earns you a double payout. If the Wild symbol lands on the first and the second reels and if there is no a higher-paying combination on the same line with it, it earns you its own reward. However, it is not doubled.
The Scatter symbol, featuring the house in the forest, earns you the reward in credits and bonuses. You can get a payout for two symbols which land anywhere on the reels. Free spins and a double win feature become available when at least three symbols land. The double win earned for the Wild symbol is not applied to winning combinations with the Scatter symbol.
According to the factors and the visual design, the regular symbols are subdivided into two groups — playing card pictures and magic attributes. 9, 10, Jack and Queen earn you the minimum win. Even with the double win earned for the Wild symbol, you have to form combinations of four symbols. Otherwise, you should wait until several winning combinations line up. The magic attributes: a cat, an owl, a pot, a white-haired witch and a purple-haired witch pay you enough credits even in minimal combinations.
Risk game and free spins
As bonus rounds, the Witches Charm slot machine offers you free spins and a chance to play the risk game. If three or more Scatter symbols land on the reels, 15 free spins and the multiplier of x3 are awarded. Free spins are played automatically with the bet and the number of lines, configured for the latest spin in the main game. If three Scatters appear again, an additional 15 free spins are awarded but the multiplier will remain x3.
The risk game is available when any winning combination is formed. By clicking the Gamble button, you can try to double the entire win for the spin. Your task is to guess right the colour of the face down playing card — black or red. The right guess will double the win, if it is wrong, the win is lost and you return to the main game. When playing with the maximum bet, you can risk any win of less than 10,500 credits.
Mystery Jackpot Cards Bonus
Mystery Jackpot Cards Bonus can be activated at any spin. You cannot do anything with it. When the jackpot round is activated, a new window with 12 face down cards opens. Your goal is to collect three identical images. The jackpot will be awarded depending on the type of pictures.
The counters that show the size of each of the four jackpots are found above the reels.
