Welcome to Witchcraft Academy – a mysterious school of magic filled with owls, dragons and charms. Oh, and a 5 reel and 20 pay line slot. This NetEnt development has a very ‘Harry Potter-style’ feel to it; set within the old library of the academy and looming with dark secrets. Add some dramatic and mysterious music and the scene is well and truly set. Efora the Witch and Earthan the Wizard are students at Witchcraft Academy, and they have ventured into the library in the hope of unearthing some secrets and hints deep within the books and scrolls.
Within the library is an ancient door that leads to the mystery dungeon where the treasure awaits: Free Spins. Read on to find out how to uncover the free spins treasure.
The reels feature the stars of the slot: Earthan and Efora, who are the highest value symbols. Joining them are the dragon and the owl, followed by some colourful potions which make up the lower value symbols.
On reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 you might see a Wild symbol; this appears both in the main game and free spins and substitutes all symbols but the scatter. The scatter is your key to accessing the treasure: land 3 or more of these to activate the Elements Bonus.
When Elements Bonus begins, you must choose either Earthan or Efora to shoot at a range of symbols. If 3 or more scatters are hit, 5 Free Spins are activated. If one of the shots hits an armour guard, the guard will explode and hit all adjacent symbols. You may also hit some of the other symbols such as multipliers or Overlay Wilds – both welcome additions to the free spins feature.
If you are lucky enough to trigger the free spins, you can grab additional free spins by landing the Bonus Spin symbol. Doing this could result in huge wins, especially if you have some extra bonus features to start with during free spins.
Witchcraft Academy looks fantastic and features a captivating theme, all while boasting excellent gameplay with phenomenal bonus features and free spins. It’s thrilling and has the potential to pay out well; which is just what we’ve come to expect from a typical NetEnt game. Highly recommended.
