Ozwin’s Jackpots Slot Reviewed: With 20 paylines and 5 reels, Ozwin’s Jackpots is an Yggdrasil powered progressive jackpot video slot. The theme of the game is centred around a sorcerer, the reels can be spun from 20 pence up to £40 on mobile phones and PC desktops at our Yggdrasil Casinos. The graphics are sharp and fresh on the eye, come to think of it we didn’t expect anything less from Yggdrasil.
As you collect crystals during the Spellbook Bonus feature they’re responsible for initiating the free spins feature that awards 10 free spins with multiplier wins of 3x. Players can collect 1 to 5 different coloured orbs-each one has its own progressive jackpot. All in all it’s another superb release from Yggdrasil.
If you’re into fantasy themed slots, Ozwin’s Jackpots gets you off to a good start – it’s zingy, fun and the payouts are spectacular. The audio of the game reminds us of those epic Disney films of yesteryear. The symbols that appear om the reels are owls, compasses, Ozwin, bottles with potions and cards (spades, diamonds, clubs, hearts). The symbol that pays the top payout is the owl, at the maximum wager 5 of them pays 200x your stake. The RTP or theoretical return to player percentage of Ozwin’s Jackpots is 95.4%.
If you’re out to win the grand prize (progressive jackpot) you’ll need a budget of at least £1,000. It gives you ample opportunity to trigger the free spins feature or the Spellbook Bonus game that’s played during the main game. Keep in mind your average bet per spin must be in line with your bankroll, unless you go in guns a blazing by betting the maximum bet per spin (25 spins x £40=£1,000). Other than that there’s the usual customization options such as Max Bet, Auto Play, Audio (mute/un mute), Paytable (i) and different coin levels.
The Spellbook Bonus is triggered when 3 or more Spellbook Bonus symbols pitch during the main game. If you landed 4 or 5 the payout you’ll get will be anything from 50 to 500x your stake. Once the feature is triggered a new screen opens up showcasing 18 Spellbooks, you must click on them to reveal a hidden prize. The features comes to an abrupt end if you pick the hidden evil spell, As you pick crystals of various colour (red, blue, green, purple and green) you can win cash prizes to the tune of around 50x your stake.
Jackpot Free Spins
The free spins feature can be triggered in two ways. The first way to trigger it is to collect 5 crystals of the same colour and the second is to land 3 or more scatter free spins symbols any position on the reels. Hit 3 or more free spin symbols you’ll pocket 10 free spins with multiplier wins of 3x.
Hit 4 or 5 of them you’ll receive a bonus payout of between 50 to 500x your line bet. If you initiated the free spins by collecting 5 crystals, the 5 crystals will turned into the first orb awarding you 10 free spins with tripled wins. The 5 jackpots in sequence that can be won are the Archmage (red), Mystic (blue), Wizard (purple), Apprentice (green) and the Novice (brown).
Our initial take on Ozwin’s Jackpots is that appears somewhat complicated but once you start getting the hang of it it’s straightforward. Keep an eye out for the Spellbook Bonus since it awards you crystals that can be used to trigger the free spins.
Once the free spins feature is played not only can you win cash prizes on every spin but you can win any of the 5 progressive jackpots. Non-jackpot payouts can be as high as 1,200 your stake. The entertainment and payout value the slots offers deserves a resounding 8! Another slots from Yggdrasil with a similar theme is Vikings Go Bezerk.
