The Witchcraft Academy slot, available at Net Entertainment online casinos, is based on the premise of a wizard-to-be and a witch-to-be who are at a school of magic. The graphics in this game use a very high-quality 2D approach, and the gameplay centers around multiple features that use the magic school theme very well. The volatility is in the low-to-medium range with a pretty serious hit-rate, so there's plenty of action to be had also. While there are plenty of titles in the industry as a whole that use magic types of themes, this is one that stands out.
The layout of this game is designed to offer plenty of screen real estate for features without having so many ways to win that it's difficult to keep up with them all. To achieve this, they went with five reels, three horizontal rows and 20 paylines, which is admittedly a pretty uncommon format. You normally see at least 40 lines with a 5x4 layout, but it works out well here. For the betting, you can choose coins that go from $0.01 to $1 each with up to 10 coins per line for a minimum wager of $0.20 and a maximum of $200 per spin.
School of Magic Wild Symbol
The wild symbol for this slot is a logo in the style of the school of magic that has a large, red W on it over a golden background with a red trim around the outside and a decorative ribbon. This wild makes an appearance on the first, second, fourth and fifth reels only, which is every reel but the middle one. Along these lines, it doesn't give players their own winning combinations. With that having been said, it will substitute for everything but the scatter and bonus symbols, which means you're getting plenty of extra wins with it over the course of your sessions.
Elements Bonus Round
The bonus feature has the word "bonus" in gold on a dark gray background with golden trim. Three or more of this scatter anywhere on the game board will take you to the Elements Bonus Round. In this round, you'll pick between Earthan the wizard and Efora the witch, and you'll see columns of different sizes in front of you. You'll shoot a magical bolt at them, and it will bounce around to give you chances to get free spins feature. You can unlock each feature once in this round.
Free Spins Bonus Feature
The Elements Bonus Round has different scatter symbols on it that say "Bonus Spin" in the same style as the original bonus symbol that got you there in the first place. Three or more activate the feature, and two or more during the free spins will add more free spins to your total. You'll always get five free spins to start with while using the different features that were unlocked during the Elements Bonus Round. You can get five, 10, 15 or 20 extra free spins with two, three, four or five bonus spin symbols during the free spins mode, respectively.
Important Symbols and Payouts
The wizard is the main symbol for the payouts. He's wearing a dark red uniform with gold trim and is standing in front of a lighter red background with a golden square around him. Five of a kind of this wizard earns you a 400x payout. The witch is wearing purple and white, and she's on a light purple background. She also grants players 200x payouts for five on a payline. Five of the dragon or owl also give you strong wins of 100x or 80x, respectively.
Four suit symbols from the typical deck of cards are dressed up and look amazing for the bottom tier of symbols. The red heart, purple spade, violet club and blue diamond all get you 40x when you line up five of them on a line.
What you'll find with the Witchcraft Academy slot by Net Entertainment is a game that gives players a look into a wonderful school of magic. The pay schedule centers around a low to medium volatility pay table with a two-stage feature that gives you free spins with magical features. The idea of exploring the school as the wizard and witch is an interesting idea that follows in the footsteps of popular franchises like Harry Potter, but it's clear that this game is not centered around the themes of those franchises in the sense of being a blatant copy.
