Witch Pickings Slot Review

The fairytale comes to life through this beautifully made slot from NextGen Gaming. Travel through the magical world of the witches and try to find all the bonuses you can. Choose the witch you like most and let her enchant the reels for even bigger wins.

The visuals rekindle memories of the Wizard of Oz world as the background consists of a magical land decorated with fields of flowers and colorful trees. In the distance, you’ll see a pink and white castle that shines bright like a diamond under the clear blue sky. The reels are surrounded by a slim gold trim which is interrupted at the top by the game’s logo written in a vivid pink font.

Moving on to the mechanics, the reels start spinning altogether and stop individually in consecutive order. Winning symbols become briefly animated and trigger a quick audio effect.

If you like magic-themed slots then you might enjoy NetEnt’s “Magic Portals”. For now, though, let’s see how you can play Witch Pickings.

How to Play Witch Pickings

The game has 3 rows and 5 reels with 25 fixed paylines. Most of the controls can be found at the bottom of the screen giving you the ability to adjust the bet size, enable the max bet option, or enter the in-game menu for further customization. The only thing that has its own unique space on the interface is the spin button located near the reels’ right side.

Bets start at $0.40 and are capped at $16.

Witch Pickings is a medium to high volatility slot with a fairly large hit frequency of around 35%. The highest payout is 1,000 coins which are awarded for getting a payline full of wilds.

The game consists of 6 low paying and 4 high paying symbols. The first are represented by card values 9-A while the latter come in the form of a black cat pendant, a potion bottle, a cauldron, and a castle.

The slot’s special symbols are:

  • Wild – The slot’s wild symbol is a purple crystal ball. It can appear in any line and can substitute for all symbols except for the scatter.
  • Scatter – The slot’s scatter symbol is the three witches. Getting 3 scatter symbols will activate the Witches Bonus. Scatter wins can pay any way of the selected paylines.

Witch Pickings Features

You may be surprised at first but Witch Pickings is a slot with only one single bonus mode. Things aren’t as simple as they sound though. Let’s check out the Witches Bonus.

Witches Bonus

Getting 3 or more scatter symbols will activate the feature and award 5 free games. Before the free games start though, the player will be presented with a screen where one of three active bonuses must be picked from each witch. These are:

All the Blue Witch bonuses initially work by randomly selecting one of the 4 high paying symbols. Based on which bonus you pick, during the free games:

  • Symbols the same – All 4 high paying symbols will become the selected symbol.
  • Symbols stacked – The selected symbol appears stacked.
  • Symbol prizes – For each selected symbol that appears a prize between 25-500 coins is awarded and multiplied by the bet.

Next up is the Red Witch. Her bonuses are:

  • Expanding wilds – Any wilds that appear expand to fill all 3 positions on the reel.
  • Extra wilds – Extra wilds are added to the reels.
  • Wild multiplier – Any win including a wild symbol is multiplied by 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10.

Last but not least, is the Green Witch. The bonuses she can award are:

  • All wins multiplier – All wins from the feature are multiplied by 2, 3, 4, or 5 including the symbol prizes that are displayed already multiplied by 2, 3, 4, or 5.
  • Pays both ways – All wins can pay both ways but only the highest win from either left to right or right to left payline pays. Scatter wins pays any.
  • Extra 5 free games – 5 additional free games are added to the feature and any retriggers.

The Witches Bonus can be retriggered during the feature and all free games are played using the originally selected bonuses.
