”Welcome to the witchcraft academy, the most ancient and mysterious school of magic, full of secrets and charms! Join our friendly duo Efora and Earthan on their quest to find the magic treasures of the free spins hidden in the deep caverns.”

The symbol that pays the top cash prize is Earthan, 5 of them on a payline at the maximum wager pays 20x your stake. Witchcraft Academy has an average return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.38% or a house advantage of 3.62%.
Before you play decide on a bankroll and your average bet per spin. There are 10 bet levels (1 to 10) with the coin value being 0.01 to 1.00. Players who play the game in the free mode receive £5,000 free credits.
If you plan on playing it for free keep it in line with your bankroll. Let’s say you have £150 don’t bet £10 per spin because you’ll only have 15 spins to unlock a bonus feature, instead bet at least £1 per spin because it gives you ample opportunity to unlock one. And, it keeps things real!
The symbol with the ‘US’ on it is the wild, it completes winning combinations when it substitutes symbols on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 except the scatter. The ‘Bonus’ symbol is the scatter and responsible for initiating the free spins feature, more on it in a bit.
When 3 or more scatter ‘Bonus’ symbols appear any position on the reels it triggers the Elemental Bonus. Once triggered you have a choice between Efora (witch) and Earthan (wizard) to cast an elemental shot at a random column. When an Armour Guard symbols is hit by an Elemental Shot, the Armour Guard explodes hitting symbols adjacent to it horizontally or vertically.
Now, when an Elemental Shot hits a scatter symbol, the Free Spins feature the symbol represents is played. Each free spins feature can be unlocked only once. Earthan’s element is the dragon and Efora’s is the owl, when an Element hits, the closest symbol is cleared in the column.
The Elemental Shots are proportionate to the bonus symbols, i.e for 5 scatters there are 5 Elemental symbols. Three or more scatters collected in the Elemental Bonus gives 5 free spins with the unlocked Free Spins features:
- 2 Bonus symbols award 5 free spins
- 3 Bonus symbols award 10 free spins
- 4 Bonus symbols award 15 free spins
- 5 Bonus symbols award 20 free spins
If it’s an Overlay Wild reel, the top cash prize that can be won during the free spins on a single spin is 8,000x your stake this includes multiplier wins of 2x!
NetEnt’s Witchcraft Academy is a well-rounded slots with interesting bonus features. The Elemental Bonus pays up to 5 coins which equals 1,000x your wager which we’ll take any day. Then there’s the free spins with its Overlay Wild Reel, extra free spins that can be won and 2x multipliers that takes payouts to the next level. Wins during the base game are good making it the ideal slots for low rollers like us.
