Bewitched by iSoftbet
Bewitched is a pretty online slot with a magical theme and cartoon style graphics. The game has the regular five reels, and an optional set of fifteen paylines. A player can choose to play 1, 5, 10, or all fifteen of these paylines. Coin value and range can be chosen by the player, and is wide enough to suit most budgets. Bewitched is a progressive slot, which means that along with a standing jackpot it offers a progressive jackpot too. This progressive jackpot is linked to other versions of the game, and grows as players from around the world play it. It is reset if it is won.
The theme to Bewitched is obvious from the get go, not just because of the title of the game but also the opening screen. As the game begins, the player has to choose between two witches, either a red clothed, black haired witch or a blue clothed red haired witch. The black haired witch looks decidedly more evil than the redhead. From there the game centres on the two witches and their various paraphernalia. The graphics are good, although very cartoony. The background to the reels is a dark purple sky scene with twinkling stars, that also rain down on the reels whenever a winning combination is formed. The symbols themselves are intricate and full of bright colours.
The game will pay out if a player lands three matching symbols from left to right on an active payline. The more paylines you have in play the bigger your chances of this happening. The base symbols in the game come from a deck of cards, but have beautiful golden scroll work added to them to help them to blend in to the theme. Next in line are the crystal ball, the spell book, the red boots and the hat and moon. The highest paying symbols in the game are the castle, the frog and the witch with the green hat. These will pay out up to 1000 coins for five castles in a row, the green lady is worth 750 and the frog 500. Interestingly these top three symbols will reward you with a payout for only two of them in a row. The game also has a wild symbol that replaces any other symbol in the game except for the scatters and the bonus symbol.
Bewitched comes with two bonus games. The first is launched by finding the Wizard bonus symbol three or more times anywhere on your reels. When this happens you will be taken to a second screen where you will find said wizard surrounded by books and potions. This is a pretty simple pick me game, where you will have the chance to choose potions which may contain free spins, multipliers or even the progressive jackpot.
The second game hinges on your choice in the beginning of the game between the two witches. The blue hatted witch acts as a scatter, and launches an epic battle between herself and the red witch. If your chosen witch wins this battle then your free spins and other prizes are greatly increased. The wrong witch will only reward you with one free spin, while the correct one can give you a multiplier of up to 200x your original bet as well as trebling the number of free spins.
