Spellcast Pokie Game
Pokie players love a bit of magic on the reels and while that could apply to a massive win, NetEnt’s Spellcast takes things literally with wizards, wands and plenty more populating this particular board. It’s one of the more established games from the developer but still sees plenty of online play to this day so you know that you’re in for an interesting experience. Also, while the features aren’t quite as innovative as some of the most recent NetEnt releases, there is no question that this is a solid way to enjoy your gaming time as you’ll discover in our full review, or playing the game itself above.
Game Type: Video Pokie
Win Lines: 20
Special Features: Wilds, scatters, free spins and Casket Bonus
Top Prize: 10,000 coins
Players can ease themselves into the action as nobody that has every played a poker machine before will have any difficulty at all with the twenty win lines offered by this game. The pay table is on hand at all times to demonstrate exactly how your different bet levels and coin bets are having an impact on the symbols and players are given the choice between manual spins or their automatic counterparts. The latter is useful if you’re looking to go particularly casual and you don’t need to worry about missing out on any of the great features as the game will pause whenever one is triggered.
Speaking of the features, they’re not going to take your breath away as we alluded to earlier but they certainly achieve the goal of keeping things interesting. The first of the extras that you’re likely to encounter is the wizard wild card and while it is, to all intents and purposes, a basic wild, it manages to stand out through the red glow in his eyes whenever he joins in on a winning combination. It’s purely aesthetic but certainly helps to enhance the magical atmosphere that Spellcast is all about.
As far as fully fledged bonus features are concerned, there is only one and it is made up of free spins. Three or more crystal balls won’t tell you too much about the future but they will announce that you’re the lucky recipient of an instant cash prize and fifteen free spins. This might be rather basic by NetEnt standards but the round itself is improved greatly by the inclusion of a three times multiplier on all free spin prizes.
Game Culture’s Opinion
Spellcast relies on atmosphere and immersion more than innovative bonus features and that’s by no means a bad thing. It allows the game to be downright fun to play rather than attempting to reinvent the wheel and it deserves credit on that basis alone.
