Witches Cauldron Slot Machine

There are some nice touches in this slot which make it both entertaining and potentially profitable to play. The theme is an old style witch and the crazy Halloween type things which go along with that. I love the little frog on the top left of the reels, which jumps over the reels from time to time. There are two different bonus games, and wild symbols on the reels (in the form of the mandatory Black Cat). As with many Pragmatic Play titles, there is one win which is way bigger than the others – 5 cats gets you 10,000 coins.

When you first see the reels, they look busy. Once you play, the transparent background to the reels shows a room in a castle, which is where the witch makes her potions. One great audio touch in this game is the soft music and occasional cackling laugh from the witch. The symbols include what looks like a bird inside a bottle, the witch herself, an egg-timer, a snake and decorated playing card symbols. Some of the symbols are decorated enough that it is hard to recognize them. The ace in particular looks like a random blue shape. There are extra animations when you win, with the scraggy looking black cat a highlight.

Free spins is the standard setup for Pragmatic Play slots, you simply run through the normal game for free a certain number of times. I liked the unique cauldron bonus better; here you get to choose ingredients for the next potion.

Double Double Toil and Trouble

There are 20 win lines, which are flexible enough to let you select any number of. You can spin from just 1c per line up to $5, making the max bet per spin a huge $100 and perfect for all you high rollers out there. Auto-play and the ability to toggle the sounds or animations on and off area all available. I like the pop up list from the bottom right, which shows the wins on different lines after each win.

Wild symbols are the scraggy black cat, and this also has the single biggest prizes by a long way. 5 of these on a win-line get you 10,000 coins, with 2000 coins for 4, 200 for 3 and 20 for just 2. Wilds also substitute for the regular symbols (with the usual exception of the bonus and scatters). Who said black cats were unlucky?

Regular prizes are topped by a pestle and mortar, which is worth 4000 coins for 5. A purple snake over a pot comes next at 2000 for 5, and then the egg-timer at 5000. The next symbol appears to be a desert with eyeballs around the outside, and this will net you 400 for 5. The unfortunate bird in a bottle awards 300 – with the decorated playing card symbols making up the rest of the wins.

You’ll find 2 more symbols; the scatter symbol is the book. This triggers between 7 and 30 free spins depending on how many you land anywhere on the reels. 3 gets you 7 spins, 4 is for 15 and 5 gets you 30 free spins. The bonus symbol is the witch; you need these to land from the left hand reels to trigger the cauldron bonus. While the game is the same, the more witches you land to trigger this, the bigger the bonus will be – up to a maximum of 17600 ‘Bonus Points’ (coins).

Witches Cauldron – Bonus Games

Free spin games on Pragmatic Play slots all follow the same pattern. A large sized counter appears on top of the reels, which shows your remaining spins. Other than this the game is exactly the same, with no different symbols, different behaviour or different prizes. You can trigger the bonus again while playing (with 3+ books anywhere on the reels), which will simply cause your total spins to go up. Once you complete the round, a new screen appears to show you the total won – you click ok on this and return to the main game.

The Witches Cauldron bonus is a pick-em game, though a nicely done one. Here you go to a break-out screen with the witch stirring a giant cauldron. Around her on shelves are different classic ingredients such as unicorn blood and fire. You choose an ingredient, and it will get poured into the vat. Either a win amount appears in the steam, or a skull. After you hit 3 skulls, your bonus game is over and you get the summary screen showing what you won. The witch turns into a dragon at the end of the game – which is a comical twist the first time through at least.

This Game Will Cast a Spell on You

This might well be my favourite Pragmatic Play slot, the mix of light hearted graphics and sounds with the potential for a huge win is always a great combination. 2 bonus rounds keep you from getting bored with the game, and the small humorous animations and touches are the icing on the cake. I recommend this game as a great introduction to what Pragmatic Play is capable of producing.
