Warlock’s Spell Slots

Warlock's-SpellWarlock’s Spell, a title offered by RTG, comes with a focus on warlocks and magic. A warlock is considered to be the male equivalent of a witch, so it’s not exactly a positive term (a wizard would be the good guy, I’m guessing). The warlock mentioned here bears a striking resemblance to Gandalf from Lord of the Rings, but I’m sure that it’s just a coincidence. The game is full of all kinds of esoteric symbols, spell books and it tries to send across the message that it’s all about magic.

The 5 reels of Warlock’s Spell have 20 win lines on them, plus a long list of features that can get activated as you play the game. You will find that wilds will help you get more payouts, that scatters will reward you with free spins and cash prizes, and that multipliers will help improve the prizes you’re getting. Speaking of the prizes, the big one offered here can be worth $50,000, more than enough to change someone’s life if they’re handled properly. The random progressive jackpot that is offered as an alternative will not be given directly by the game.

Features of Warlock’s Spell

With two types of wild symbols, scatters and all the other features and bonus rounds included, Warlock’s Spell manages to leave a nice impression on its players. The mystical theme helps as well in that regard, but for now let’s see what the wilds can do for you.

There are two wild symbols, each one using certain reels with only one common for both. The Warlock can appear on reels 3, 4 and 5. The Witch wild is reserved for the reels 1, 2 and 3. You can mix and match the two wilds on the same line, and you will still get paid. The largest prize that the game offers is at 10,000 coins, requiring five wild symbols of any kind on an active line. Since they are wilds, they can substitute for regular symbols and take their place in new winning combinations. Neither can substitute for the scatter spell book.

The Spell Book, a scatter symbol that will give you rewards just for having at least three of them in any position, is also responsible for the free spins feature. To get back to the cash payouts, the scatter will give you 2x to 100x the bet in prizes, as long as you have the right number of Spell Books on the reels (3 to 5).


Potion Prize Feature

You need the same number of Spell Books to get this bonus game started as you need to get paid (3+). During the picking game that follows, you have to choose the ingredients for a potion, in order to counter the spell of the warlock. Choose correctly, and you will get a green potion and the prize that is indicated on the screen. If you choose incorrectly multiple times, the total value of the prize will decrease each time.

You get up to 6 guesses, and the more it takes you to find the right one, the fewer free spins you win. A correct first guess will get you 100 spins for free, the second one 25, then for choices 3 to 6 you get 20, 15, 10 or 8 spins for free. The free spins all have a x3 multiplier tripling their prizes.

Betting options and jackpots

The betting range is big enough to allow all kinds of players to try out this slot. It starts with $0.01 coins and you can use 1 to 20 of them to place the bet. If you want to use better wagers (and get better payouts), you can increase the denomination of the coin up to $5, but the total bet will get to $100.

The 10,000 coins offered through the top jackpot is a good reason to play the game, but considering that you get 3x multipliers during the free spins, the top payout will vary between $50,000 (base game) and $150,000 (free spins jackpot). You also get the usual random progressive jackpot in this game, issued to a player at the end of a spin.

Design and symbols

Even though the game is mostly about witchcraft, you get a feeling that it’s mystical and a bit focused on the zodiac. That’s mostly the effect of using too many stars around the playing cards, which tend to dominate the reels since there are quite a few of them. The few symbols that are related directly to the theme look pretty good though, drawn in great detail and colored properly.

Symbols: Warlock and Witch (wilds, 10,000x), Spell Book (scatter, 100x the triggering wager), Black Cat (5,000x), Gold Broach (1,000x), Green Potion (500x), Ingredient (500x), Ace/King (250x), Queen/Jack (200x), 10 or 9 (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

The warlock/witch theme is not as attractive to me as something focusing on wizards, but it has a more mystical aspect that some might be able to relate to. Payout wise it’s also doing well, plus you get as many as 100 free spins with 3x multipliers. There aren’t that many reasons to say no to this RTG slot.

The Warlock’s Spell slot machine is offered through the RTG platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
