MAGIC CASTLE SLOT FEATURES
- Wild symbol. Leonora herself is the Wild symbol, serving to replace any other symbols on the reels except for the Scatter. She takes up two symbols’ places and she’ll give you some nice rewards if you land her on an active payline.
- Scatter symbol. This slot’s Scatter is represented by a moonlit castle. It cannot be replaced by the Wild and will trigger the Free Spins feature, depending on the number of such symbols you manage to land.
- Free Spins feature. As mentioned above, the Scatter symbol will trigger this feature. If you manage to land three Scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4, you’ll get 15 free spins. And if you trigger this feature while Leonora rests on the reels, you’ll get a number of free spins equal to 15 times the number she reveals on her crystal globe.
- Crystal Ball Multiplier feature. As soon as Leonora appears anywhere on the reels, she will award you with a random multiplier that she will reveal on her crystal ball. You can calculate the multiplier value based on the number of reels that have Wild symbols on them.
- Familiar Upgrade feature. As any reputable witch, Leonora also has two familiars in the shape of a Wild Wolf and a Wild Cat. When the Wild Cat shows up on reel 5, any other cat symbols present will turn into Wilds. If you get the Wild Wolf on reel 5, all the wolf symbols will turn into Wilds.
- Autoplay feature. Sometimes, all the spells and spinning might do a number on you. So when you get tired, you can always use the Autoplay feature. Simply set a certain number of automatic spins and watch the game play itself for you while you replenish your mana.
We hope you’re just as excited about this slot as we are. After all, both the theme and the features will make it worth your while and the possible wins should seal the deal.
