About the Game
Behind the transparent reels in Witch Pickings is a lush and detailed backdrop, with a tree festooned with mushrooms to the left, and a charming cobblestone road leading to a pretty pink and white castle in the distance (presumably the home of the three friendly witches). The symbols on the reels are beautifully-illustrated and intricate, and all fit perfectly with the magical theme. There are pink glass bottles with emerald stoppers, glistening pink and purple cats, bubbling cauldrons, and fairy tale castles, amongst ornate 10, J, Q, K and A symbols bordered with gold.
Bonus features include:
- WILDS – the Crystal Ball WILD symbol substitutes for any other symbol apart from SCATTERS.
- SCATTERS – 3 or more SCATTER symbols (featuring the 3 witches all gathered together) awards the Witches Bonus.
- Witches Bonus – this presents the player with an array of options or ‘ingredients’ to cast their own spell over the reels. You can choose 3 different features from a total of 9, amongst which are ‘Symbols the Same’ (one symbol from Castle, Cauldron, Potion, Bottle or Pendant is chosen at random, and all other symbols transform to match it), ‘Expanding Wilds’ (WILDS expand to fill the reel), and ‘Extra 5 Free Games’ (self-explanatory).
- Trophies –select the Trophies feature to view your in-game achievements. Trophies are awarded, for example, for triggering certain features a set number of times.
- Gamble – gamble your wins by selecting a card colour or suit, to double the win with a correct colour, or quadruple it with a correct suit. Winnings can be gambled up to 5 times, which is great for those who like their stakes high.
The soundtrack is as enchanting as the game’s artwork, providing a happy fairy tale atmosphere as you spin the reels. An easy-to-use Autoplay feature also lets you set up to 100 Autospins, taking the effort out of playing entirely.
This game is sure to cast a positive spell over any player! The basic ingredients of this potion are beautiful artwork, solid bonus features, and a vibrant theme, though extra touches, such as the vast array of possibilities in the Witches Bonus, make it a powerful piece of slots content.
