If it’s Halloween and you’re yearning for some seasonally themed online slot action then we may have something to suit – Witch Pickings is a cute and entertaining game based on this creepy time of year and it’s developed by NextGen Gaming. It includes a customisable free spins round and you can read all about it below.
Witch Pickings is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty five fixed paylines; those reels are translucent but through and round them there’s a fantasy landscape vision with a turreted castle just about visible.
There are four high value symbols including that castle, a cauldron of green stuff, a red potion bottle and a black cat pendant; 9, 10, J, Q, K and A are the lower values.
The wild is a glowing purple crystal ball and it replaces all other symbols except the scatter – that’s a pic of the three witches and it’s the key to the main feature.
Witches Bonus Free Spins
This is triggered by landing three of more of the witch scatter symbols anywhere in view for which you will receive an initial five free spins. First you must pick one extra feature from each witch:
- Symbols the Same – one of the high value symbols is randomly selected; all others transform into that symbol.
- Stacked Symbols – one of the high value symbols becomes stacked for the spins.
- Symbol Prizes – one of the high value symbols will award a prize multiplier each time it lands.
- Expanding Wilds – an wilds expand to fill the entire reel.
- Extra Wilds – extra wilds are added to all reels.
- Wild Multiplier – any win containing a wild is multiplied by up to 10x.
- All Wins Multiplier – all wins are multiplied by up to 5x.
- Pays Both Ways – paylines can start from right to left as well as left to right.
- Extra Spins – awards 5 more free spins.
The spins can be retriggered with the same witches bonuses selected.
N.B. If you can’t be bothered to make your own selection just use the Autopick option.
Any win can be gambled by clicking the hearts/spades button which appears next to the ‘Spin’ button following a win. You can now try and double/quadruple that win by guessing the correct colour/suit of the next card drawn.
Witch Pickings is an enjoyable slot which we would recommend playing at Halloween or any other time; the customisable free spins are a nice touch and you can also collect trophies for each achievement you manage. The RTP range is 95.79% to 95.94%.
