Follow Efora and Earthan on their adventures in the new NetEnt online casino slot Witchcraft Academy.
Let’s be very honest here. Finn and the Swirly Spin and Planet of the Apes both showed great promise and looked amazing, but they fell flat after players realized it was all just a smoke screen. We can’t even think of a really good slot released by NetEnt since Jungle Spirit came out, and that feels like a long time ago now. That’s why we really hold our thumbs for Witchcraft Academy.
But new NetEnt games are always of great interest because we all know they have the capacity to make great slots and we feel convinced it will just be a matter of time before something great hits the market. To NetEnt’s defence, it has to be said that they aim to offer a broad range of slots, from medium to high volatile and thus they cater to a wider range of players.[table “24” not found /]
Story & Theme
Efora and Earthan, two adventurous students of the Witchcraft Academy, are on a mission to reveal the secrets in the ancient and mysterious school of magic. To reveal its biggest mystery, Efora and Earthan sneak into the library in hope to find some hints from the many scrolls and books that lie within.
An ancient door leads to the mystery dungeon. Efora and Earthan will need to muster their courage and use their best charms, the Element Shots, to pass all the trials and enter the deep caverns where the magic treasures of Free Spins await.
Witchcraft Academy is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot featuring Wild substitutions, Elements Bonus and Free Spins. It has 20 fixed paylines and the bet size range from 0.20€ to 200€. There are 4 premium symbols: Earthan (red), Efora (pink), Dragon (purple) and Owl (blue). The 4 low value symbols are made out of various gems.
There is also a Wild symbol, which can appear anywhere on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 in both main game and Free Spins, as well as a Scatter symbol. Landing 3 or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will activate the Elements Bonus
3 or more Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels in the main game activate the Elements Bonus. The Elements Bonus is a 5-column, 4-row Bonus Game with Coin Win symbols, Armour Guard symbols, and Scatter symbols representing Free Spins Features: x2 Multiplier, +5 Free Spins, Overlay Wild Reel 1 and Overlay Wild Reel 5.
Choose Efora the witch or Earthan the wizard to cast an Element Shot at a random column. The number of Element Shots awarded is equal to the number of Scatter symbols that activated the Elements Bonus. An Element Shot will be randomly made with 1 to 4 Elements. Efora’s Element is Owl, and Earthan’s Element is Dragon. Each Element will hit and clear the closest symbol in the column.
When an Element Shot hits a Coin Win symbol, a random coin win of between 10 and 200 times the bet level is awarded. When an Element Shot hits an Armour Guard symbol, the Armour Guard explodes hitting all symbols adjacent to it horizontally or vertically.
The maximum win in coins in the Elements Bonus is 20000. When an Element Shot hits a Scatter symbol, the Free Spins Feature the symbol represents is unlocked. Each Free Spins Feature can only be unlocked once. In the Elements Bonus, Scatter symbols appear on row 4 only and represent the Free Spins Features in the following order, from leftmost to right: Overlay Wild Reel 1, +5 Free Spins, x2 Multiplier, +5 Free Spins, Overlay Wild Reel 5.
If 3 or more Scatter symbols are hit during the Elements Bonus, Free Spins are activated with the unlocked Free Spins Features. If all symbols in the Elements Bonus are cleared, while Element Shots remain, the Elements Bonus will end and Free Spins are activated with the unlocked Free Spins Features.
Unless Free Spins are activated, at the end of the Elements Bonus the game returns to the round that activated the Elements Bonus. At the end of the Elements Bonus, the total win from the Elements Bonus is added to any wins from the round that activated the Elements Bonus.
3 or more Scatter symbols collected in the Elements Bonus activate 5 Free Spins with the unlocked Free Spins Features.
2 or more Bonus Spin symbols appearing anywhere on the reels in the Free Spins award additional Free Spins:
- 2 Bonus Spin symbols = 5 Free Spins
- 3 Bonus Spin symbols = 10 Free Spins
- 4 Bonus Spin symbols = 15 Free Spins
- 5 Bonus Spin symbols = 20 Free Spins
Free Spins are played at the same bet level and coin value as the round that activated Free Spins. At the end of Free Spins, the total win from Free Spins is added to any wins from the round that activated the Elements Bonus. At the end of Free Spins, the game returns to the round that activated the Elements Bonus.[table “24” not found /]
