Spellcast Online Video Slot by NetEnt
One of Net Entertainment’s most popular sought-after to the popular magic genre in online video slots is called Spellcast. Set in an evil wizard’s spooky cave, Spellcast is a darkly themed slot with simple animations and minimal sounds aside from the occasional malicious cackle of the wizard or the constant dripping of water from the roof of the cave.
Spellcast is a 20-payline five-reel slot with theme-appropriate symbols including a creepy castle, a glowing magic potion, a crystal ball, a magic wand, a witch stirring her cauldron, the maniacal magic man himself, and golden letters representing the A-K playing cards.
The Spellcast paylines are adjustable and players can activate them by selecting and wagering between one and four coins on each of their chosen lines. Coin values in Spellcast start at 0.02 and go up to 0.50 for a maximum bet per spin of 40.00 credits.
Players risk their precious coins on the Spellcast reels for a shot at the game’s 10 000 credit jackpot.
The Wicked Wizard is Wild
The wild symbol in Spellcast is the evil white-bearded wizard. The Spellcast wizard wild symbol can substitute any regular symbol to complete winning payline combinations. The only symbol that the wizard wild cannot replace is the special Spellcast scatter. All winning combinations completed with the use of a wild substitute also receive a 2x multiplier, which doubles players’ payouts.
What’s more, the Spellcast wizard wild is also the game’s most directly valuable as five wizards on a single active payline will award the jackpot of 10 000 credits.
Scatter Symbols in the Crystal Ball
Players who land two or more crystal ball scatter symbols anywhere on the Spellcast reels – active payline or no – will receive payouts of between two and 500 times their wagers.
In addition, the Spellcast scatter symbol is the key to unlocking the game’s Free Spins Bonus Round. All players need do is land three or more crystal ball scatters anywhere on the reels.
Spellcast Free Spins Bonus Round
As mentioned, the Spellcast Free Spins Bonus Round is triggered whenever three or more crystal ball scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. Players will then receive 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier on all wins acquired during free spins.
If three Spellcast scatters are landed during one of these free spins, 15 more free spins are awarded. This will go on indefinitely until the free spins run out and before further scatters appear.
Note that all control buttons, including the payline selectors, are disabled during Spellcast free spins.
Autoplay and Skill Stop Features
Spellcast is one of a growing number of online video slots that offers both the autoplay and skill stop features.
The Spellcast autoplay feature allows players to leave the reels to spin on their own once they have selected their preferred paylines and set their betting limits and coin values. This feature can be programmed to stop automatically at some predetermined point, such as after any win, the activation of free spins, or after a set amount has been lost or won.
The Spellcast skill stop feature, meanwhile, allows players to get more involved by stopping the spinning reels manually by clicking the “spin” button.
