Presenting an unusual six reels and four rows, plus a whopping 4,000+ ways of winning, Wild Cauldron Slot from Swedish operator Quickspin has a fantastical witch theme.
Step inside a witch’s lair and take in some seriously cartoony graphics. This is a tumbling or cascading reels game, as floating symbols show up over her bubbly cauldron. In fact, it’s Quickspin’s second tumble game, the Ancient Egypt-themed Golden Glyph being the first.
The room is packed with books, telescopes, candles and globes, with the star-studded night sky visible in the background, complete with a huge full moon. (Not to mention a catchy soundtrack.)
Your aim is to get consecutive winning combos to enhance the number of ways to win while increasing the multiplier up to 7x where you have a Wild.
How to play
As ever, there’s a broad betting range in Wild Cauldron Slot, and you can get stuck in from 10p to up to £100 a pop, across all devices. Options include Autoplay and fast play modes.
The less lucrative symbols include low-value green swirls, pink eyes, blue moons, orange hazard signage, red pentagrams plus yellow bolts of lightning. All are set in blocks which appear to be fashioned from grey stone.
Wild Cauldron Slot also incorporates five monsters, of which the one with pink horns is the most rewarding, worth up to 35x for six.
Land a win when similar symbols display anywhere you like on neighbouring reels, beginning from Reel 1.
Wild Cauldron Slot special features
The W icon is the Wild, as ever replacing all icons except the bonus Scatter. (A potion bottle.) Every win which involves Wild ups the multiplier by a factor of one, up to a max 7x stake.
Activate this by landing at least four potion bottles anywhere on the reels. Bagging four, five or six Scatters rewards you with 8, 10 or a dozen freebies respectively.
While this perk is ongoing, land an extra couple of Scatters for an extra pair of free whirls – and this aspect of the bonus is unlimited.
Locking symbol tumble perk
This cascade system launches with every winning combination. Winning symbols become locked in place as they gather at the bottom of your reels. At the same time, all icons not involved in the win fall away so that new emblems can tumble into place.
As if all that wasn’t enough, every win additionally adds a further row to the grid. They just keep on coming, up to a 6×8 maximum.
Reels reset after each tumble sequence, and each one finishes once there are no more winning combos to be had.
Return to Player (RTP)
Be aware from the outset that this is a highly volatile game. So some patience may be needed to trigger the free spins. RTP or Return to Player is perhaps not the highest you’ll find anywhere, but it’s still respectable enough at 96.09%.
As we’ve all come to expect with Quickspin games, Wild Cauldron Slot really is a beautifully designed affair, offering plenty of light-hearted charm. The general vibe is warm and welcoming; there’s certainly no sinister black magic at work here!
It’s also beautifully simple, and the potion provided incorporates serious winning potential. You’ll like it in particular if you enjoy the mechanics of tumble slots.
