The wombat says: We’ve not really been fans of witches ever since this Wombat saw the Wizard of Oz as a nipper (that green witch gives us the heebie jeebies), so when we saw that Microgaming (of Immortal Romance fame) had based their Witches Wealth slot game around a sorceress we weren’t looking forward to testing it out.
But fear not Wombat Fans, this witch is as friendly as they come! Meet Serena and her cat Mr Twinkles who are guaranteed to pull some chunky wins out of their cauldron for you. ‘Eye of newt and toe of frog…’
Witches Wealth Game Play
Witches Wealth is your standard Microgaming release with 5 reels, 3 rows and 9 paylines. All of the symbols on the reels are related to magic and include a glass full of eyeballs, a bejewelled goblet, a whole bunch of magic potions, a book of alchemy, and what looks like a shrivelled-up parsnip with a big nose. Use her to try and build up some of those shiny coins that you’ll see on the Sterling Silver slot machine.
The Bat is the Scatter symbol in the game, so land 3x of them anywhere on the reels with scoop you a win, while Serena the Witch is the Wild symbol in this slot. She can bewitch any symbol and turn it into a frog. Not really, she’ll just substitute for all other symbols on the reels to help you make winning combinations. Sadly, her witchy tricks have no effect on Mr. Twinkles…
There are 2 bonus games than can be triggered in Witches Wealth slot with the help of that Mr. Twinkles, Serena’s cute blue cat who looks like she also hangs out in the Creepy Castle slot machine.
Landing 3x or 4x of the Mr. Twinkles symbols on a payline will activate the Magic Wand feature. Here you’ll be whisked off to a second screen where a wheel of fortune will appear before your very eyes with magic wand on it. Spin the wand to receive an instant cash prize, or to win entry into the Flying Rescue bonus.
In this second screen little story, you must help Serena to rescue her beloved kitty which has been teleported to the other side of the city. The cat gives you a random prize and then teleports off somewhere. You have to fly to him while avoiding the falling objects (like fridges and horses, you know, the normal stuff that’s in the sky) and if you do, you’ll double your prize. If you manage to get back home in one piece as well, with Mr. Twinkles on your broomstick, your wins will be tripled, with the maximum payout being 16500 coins!
This bewitching little bonus can also be triggered off if you manage to land 5x of the Mr. Twinkles symbols in a row on the reels.
The Witched Wealth slot has cast a spell on us! OK, so the graphics are a bit dodgy, but the bets start at 0.01 credits and up 180 per spin which means it will appeal to the high rollers and low rollers amongst you. And then there’s the Flying Rescue bonus – 16500 credits just cannot be sniffed at! A fun theme with some good payouts.
