Witchcraft Academy is an online slot machine from Netent that was released in January 2018.
It is a so-called exclusive Netent slot machine, which means that the first months (usually six) can only be played at an online casino. In this case it is LeoVegas, which previously also had the exclusive Netent slot Vegas Party.
This Vegas Party is a real exclusive video slot, because you can only find it at the LeoVegas casino.
But what is Witchcraft Academy about? The Witchcraft Academy is the school of magic. A kind of Netent version of Hogwarts. If you want to learn how to conjure as the best, then register with the Witchcraft Academy. A nice starting point for a slot that you can use in many ways as a casino game maker.
Efora and Earthan are the two students this slot focuses on. It has to be said, that Earthan looks a bit better than Harry Potter. That again.
Visually a boring mistake
Unfortunately, Netent has not fully succeeded in taking full advantage of this opportunity. Witchcraft Academy is enormously disappointing graphically. It looks like a slot from 10 years ago. The animations are also considerably below par. Netent could have done so much with the theme: flying witches, magic spells, students who turn into frogs, you name it all. But none of that in this video slot.
The sounds are also limited to some dull wing sounds if you win a nice prize. It seems as if Netent consciously opted for a minimalist approach, but that seems to me to be a huge mistake for a slot machine with such a theme.
Fortunately there is also something positive to report about Witchcraft Academy. The free spins bonus is great fun and offers the player the chance to win all kinds of extra boosters. And we love that at SuperBigWin.nu.
How does the Witchcraft Academy slot machine work?
The game is played on 5 reels with 4 symbols per reel. There are 20 fixed paylines, which surprised us a bit. With so many symbols on a roll, we expected at least 40 paylines.
Winning combinations apply from left to right, right to left and on the middle reels. 3 chances for the price of 1, so.
In terms of payment percentage, this slot also disappoints us: 96.38%. We at Netent are used to that better. The variance is on the low side of medium.
Symbols and payouts
All symbols are stacked. The 4 premium symbols are Earthan (400 coins with the same 5), Efora (200 coins), the little dragon (100 coins) and the owl (80 coins). The low symbols consist of the card symbols hearts, spades, diamonds and clover and all pay out 40 coins with the same 5 on an active payline.
The "W" symbol is wild and replaces all other symbols with the exception of the scatter symbol.
The free spins bonus
The bonus round is activated with 3 or more scatter symbols. You do not automatically receive free spins, you must earn them. You do this by letting Ephora and Earthan sum elements that shoot vases and guards. Sometimes you only receive credits, but sometimes you win free spins or extra boosters. Those boosters consist of multipliers and extra wilds.
During the free spins you can earn extra free spins by spinning more scatters. From 2 scatter symbols you already have a prize: this gives you 5 extra free spins. More scatters deliver more free spins, up to 20 extra.
The bonus round of Witchcraft Academy is very nice and exciting. It is not a given at all that you drag in the free spins and that therefore always gives a kind of sigh of relief.
What do we think of Witchcraft Academy?
We are limping somewhat on this Netent slot machine. From a technical point of view it is all well put together and especially the free spins bonus is original and entertaining.
However, where Witchcraft Academy misses the mark is on the visual and sound technical level. Simply put, this video slot disappoints a lot.
And that's a shame too, with some flashier graphics and kicking sound effects, this slot would have been worth a big 4 stars.
Now it gets stuck at 3.5 stars.
