Witch Pickings from NextGen Gaming

Witch Pickings is a fun cartoon style online and mobile video slot from NextGen Gaming. The game offers five reels and twenty five paylines, as well as a number of bonus features for players to enjoy. This is a fun slot, aimed at all levels of slot players and all budgets.

The game plays as nicely on a smaller screen as on a bigger one such as a tablet.

Witchy Fantasy Theme

The theme of Witch Pickings is a sweet fantasy with three cartoon style rather scantily clad witches. It is colourful, bright, and easy on the eyes. The Witches themselves look like they may come from a kid’s novel, all long hair, colourful clothes and beaming smiles.

The background to the reels is a slightly nondescript landscape scene, with green trees and rolling meadows. Presumably this is where the witches live. The reels themselves are clear, so you can always catch a glimpse of the pretty background. The graphics are crisp, and well designed in 3D, and still look good on a smaller screen such as a smart phone.

Witchy Symbols

The symbols in Witch Pickings start with the basic deck of cards, which will pay out 150 times your wager for finding five identical ones in a row. The rest of the symbols are things from the witches’ lives, such as a cauldron, pink potion, a castle and a cat. The symbols are all done in cartoon style, so as to be more fun than realistic. In fact the whole game has the feel of a child’s animated movie.

Witchy Special Features

There are many special features in Witch Pickings, from different kinds of wilds to multipliers to free spins. The first is the Witches Bonus Feature, which comes into play when you find three or more scatter symbols across the reels. The scatter is the three witches together, and can be found on any active payline. This will award you with five free spins. When this happens you get to choose three features for the Free Games feature. To do this you have to pick one from each pot. Each pot contains three options.

Pot one is all about symbols. You have the choice of stacked, same, or prize symbols. If you choose stacked, one symbol in the game is chosen randomly to become a stacked symbol. Same means that again a symbol is chosen at random, and all the other symbols become the selected symbol. Symbol prizes means that after a symbol is chosen at random, every time it appears you will be awarded a cash prize.

Pot two is all about wilds; expanding wilds, extra wilds, or wild multipliers. Choosing the expanding wilds means that the purple magic ball wild will expand to cover all three position on that reel. Extra wilds simply add extra wild symbols to your reels. Wild Multiplier randomly awards any win containing a wild with a multiplier of between 2x and 10x.

Pot three contains an all wins multiplier, pays both ways, and extra 5 free games. The multiplier multiplies all wins by a random number up to five and includes symbol prizes. The Pays Both Ways feature means that paylines run left to right and right to left. Extra 5 free games is just that, you get an extra five free spins with retriggers available.
