The theme of the witch is something that is not used nearly enough as it should be in slots gaming. Growing up in school, the legend of witches (mainly thanks in my case to Roald Dahl literature!) was really prevalent and it’s always been a fascinating topic.
Which Witch Will Win?
The slots developer iSoftBet has decided to do something about a lack of witch-themed slots by releasing this 5 reel, 15 payline visual beauty that focuses on the moral battle between two witches who are fighting to become The Best Witch.
Symbols present on the reels are all witchcraft-related including potions, mystical jewellery, spellbooks, cauldrons, voodoo dolls, and magic spells. There are also the regular Jack-through-to-Ace symbols.
Win Big with the Wild
The Wild symbol is represented by a Wild logo set against a purple orb surrounded by a golden ring. This spectacular-looking Wild can substitute for all other symbols on the reels, except for the Scatters and Bonus symbols, to complete any winning combinations that appear on a single spin.
Pick Your Witch
There are two main bonus features that can be triggered on this slot. The first is the Witches Battle. This is triggered by hitting two or more Scatters, represented by the blue witch and the green witch symbol, on the reels. When you start the game, you will be asked to choose a witch to align with. This is the witch you will be backing in this battle. Now pay attention, this is where it gets a bit complicated.
Lose and You Earn up to 20 Free Spins
If your witch loses then you will only be able to earn up to 20 free spins. This will depend on how many Scatters you triggered the Witches Battle with. If you triggered with two Scatters then you will earn just 5 free spins. This increases to 10 free spins with three Scatters, 15 free spins with four Scatters, and 20 free spins with five Scatters.
Win and You Earn up to 30 Free Spins with Sticky Wilds
However, if your witch wins then the number of free spins you are awarded increases. Instead, you will win 15 free spins for two Scatters, 20 free spins for three Scatters, 25 free spins for four Scatters, and 30 free spins for five Scatters. In addition, the winning witch will transform every Scatter that triggered the Witches Battle into a Sticky Wild giving you more opportunities to win big during the free spins. The Sticky Wilds will remain in place for a random number of the free spins.
Match the Coloured Cards for Prizes
If that isn’t enough for you then you’ll be pleased to hear that there is also a Bonus Round. This is triggered by landing three or more of the Bonus symbols across the reels. This is a simple match-up bonus feature where you must select cards from a choice of 24 cards. Players must match coloured cards to win prizes. Players will initially be awarded 5 picks but can earn more picks with certain cards chosen.
The Best Witch is one of the best-looking witch-themed slots I’ve played. It also has the fantastic game play to match. The Witches Battle is a bit complex to begin with but once you get to grips with it you will love it. The inclusion of the Bonus Round as well is the cherry on top. When you compare this slot to other witch-themed slots such as Microgaming’s Lucky Witch and the Wild Witches slot from NetEnt, it is far superior in the graphics department and at least equals their game play. I seriously recommend this.
