Cauldrons are historically where witches would create their potions using bizarre ingredients and one of those vessels is the theme of this fantasy-themed online slot from Quickspin; it’s called Wild Cauldron and it promises players tumbling reels and free spins.
Wild Cauldron is a six reel slot with four rows initially and 4096 ways to win – this means that there are no paylines and winning combos can be formed as long as there are matching symbols in adjacent reels starting from the left hand side. All the action takes place inside a candlelit lab which looks out onto the bright night sky.
The five higher value symbols are the little creatures in red, pink, orange, green and blue who could be the ingredients of this potion; six small engraved stones make up the lower values.
The wild is a golden ‘Wild’ which will replace all standard symbols to help form winning combinations; the green potion is the scatter symbol.
Tumbling & Locking Symbols
This is probably the most interesting feature and it sees symbols in winning combinations drop to the bottom of the reels while all others disappear to allow more to fall in from above. With each successful tumble an extra row (up to a maximum of eight in total) will be added to the top for a potential 262,144 paylines.
Any wild symbols landing during this sequence will increase the win multiplier by 1x.
Landing four, five or six of the green potion scatter symbols anywhere in view will award 8, 10 or 12 free spins respectively; two more scatters during this round will award two more spins and any expanded reels and win multipliers will remain active until the feature ends.
We always like a bit of innovation in a slot machine and Wild Cauldron gives us the Tumbling and Locking feature which adds some welcome action to the gameplay; the free spins are the tasty froth on top of the witches potion.
