Taboo Spell Slots

Taboo-SpellTaboo Spell isn’t just any game about witchcraft, it’s a slot machine which is themed around the art of Voodoo, a topic that slot developers have approached a number of times in the past. The appropriate dark design that Voodoo deserves is in use in this game, which has among its symbols alligators, dolls with pins in them and other images that suggest either the Voodoo connection or the one with the New Orleans region.

The layout of Taboo Spell is a modern one, which has 5 reels and up to 25 bet lines. You also get from it free games, scatter symbols and wilds. The slot’s best prize will reward you with $6,000.

Features of Taboo Spell

The symbols will give you wilds and scatters, but the free spins will be triggered at random, instead of having the latter as triggers.


The Voodoo Doll is easy to recognize, having about a dozen needles going through its body. It’s one of the easiest to recognize images of the Voodoo religion, so naturally it gets an important role in Taboo Spell. The symbol is used as a substitute most of the time, when it appears alone at least. However, it can do even more good as a symbol which forms combinations, in which case it will offer 2x to 1,000x as a prize for two to five symbols arranged from left to right on a payline.

There is also the Taboo Spell Logo to worry about, which would be the scatter symbol of the game. Its only role here seems to be that of a trigger for cash prize, starting at 2x the bet and going as high as 50x. They pay from any random position they happen to be in, as long as enough of them are present.

Witch Doctor Free Games Feature

The Witch Doctor Free Spins get started at random, so you don’t need a certain symbol to get them activated, a role that normally the scatter would have. If it does trigger, you are given 6 spins for free, where the symbols with Skulls, Crocodiles or Tiki Masks all become Witch Doctor icons. If you happen to get the free spins retriggered, it’s done the same way, at random, and it adds an extra 6 free spins to the queue.


Betting options and jackpots

The game uses a lot of coins, requiring up to 750 of them for the 25 lines. Each line gets up to 30 coins, denominations going up to $0.20. You can place bets of up to $6, with the total for 25 lines being $150.

The Voodoo Doll pays up to 1,000x back, so 30,000 coins or $6,000 in the best case scenario.

Design and symbols

The surrounding graphics of Taboo Spell show you the marsh like environment from New Orleans, the place where the Voodoo religion is probably most common in the United States. It doesn’t look like the most welcoming place to be in, with its trees, fog and waters where snakes and alligators abound.


Symbols: Taboo Spell Logo (scatter, 50x total bet), Voodoo Doll (wild, 1,000x), Voodoo Priest (1,000x), Tiki Mask (750x), Crocodile (750x), Skull (500x), Ace (250x), King (150x), Queen (150x), Jack (150x), 10 (100x) and 9 (100x).

Is It Worth Playing?

I’m personally not a fan of this kind of dark topic, with Voodoo as the main theme, but the game covers it well enough, to make it worth looking into if it sounds attractive to you.
