Microgaming's Witch Dr Video Slot Review

October 25, 2012

 

Microgaming is well-known in the online casino industry for using anything and everything as inspiration for making games. This has led to situations before where some pretty crazy ideas have been used for video slots at Microgaming, and the Witch Dr video slot could be considered an example of this. With a dark, scary jungle theme, the Witch Dr video slot offers players a chance to be thrilled while they take a shot at some of the nice jackpots that this game has to offer. This game definitely has an adult slant to it since you'll see cartoony severed heads and other symbols on the reels.

Witch Dr has a five-reel layout just like all of the other popular video slots. There are 20 paylines in this video slot, and this gives you up to 20 different chances to win on each and every spin. You can bet up to 20 coins on each payline, and each coin can be set to be worth from $0.01 to $0.50. The maximum bet in this game is $200, but small stakes player will also be able to play for pennies. The wide range of bet sizes available makes this game a good choice no matter how much you'll want to bet on each spin.

The Witch Dr symbol is the wild symbol in this game. Five of this wild symbol on the same payline is the key to the 5,000x line bet payout, the largest normal line payout in the game. There are also good payouts for getting four of a wild symbol, five of the Chicken scatter symbol, five Severed heads or five Shields. A number of medium payouts are also available, and these help to round out the paytable so that it's not so heavily weighted towards the largest or smallest payouts.

If you get three or more of the Chicken scatter symbol, then you're given a shot at a very nice free spins bonus round. In this round, you'll get a set of 15 free spins. All of your wins during this bonus round will be multiplied by a factor of three, and they will all be based on the bet size you had when you won the free spins in the first place. It's worth noting that unlike many video slots, you can re-trigger the free spins in Witch Dr. This means that you won't miss out if you happen to get three or more of the Chicken scatter symbol once again during your free spins.
