Spin Sorceress is a new title from NYX Gaming, developed by their NextGen Gaming games studio. It has a magical fantasy theme, which will take you into a world of make believe and snow. The symbols are influenced by all things fantasy, spell books, fortune telling orbs and magical crystals. There are 243 paylines in this one, our favourite number. And it has more features than you will know what to do with.
What We Like
Spin Sorceress, is all about features and options. The game has a Multiplying Wild feature. But the Wilds do not multiply unless the player places a Super Bet. There is an options menu, to the right of the reel, with which the player can up their bet, in the hope of landing a Wild.
With the Super bet function on all Wilds multiply the value of the pay line. The multiplier is determined by the bet which the player placed, and the amount of Wilds in the paylines. The highest Super Bet of €1000 can win a potential €50,000.
There is a gamble feature, which allows a player to gamble their winnings, after every win. It is quite common to online pokies. The old guess the suit or colour, of a face down card. Correctly guessing the colour of the card rewards you 2x the win.
And correctly guessing the suit of the card, rewards you 4x win. You can gamble as many times as you would like, or until you lose. We like gamble features, they are a great way to double your winnings, or hate yourself. They teach life lessons.
The Spin Sorceress will randomly appear during a spin and enchant a reel. The enchanted reel is guaranteed to land a wild. In a game with such gigantic Wild Multipliers this feature can really work to your advantage.
The Free Spins feature is triggered by landing three Scatter Symbols. The player is awarded ten free spins, paid at the value of the bet, when unlocked.
Free Spin wins, are paid in accordance with the bet that unlocked them. If you are lucky enough to have placed a Super Bet on the spin, which unlocked the Free Spins you are going to win big. There are more Wilds in the Free Spins game, a lot more and all of these wins will all be multiplied.
What we don’t like
We like that the Super Bet feature mixes up the game play, but we have a love hate relationship with it, because it feels like a bit of a con. The highest Super Bet, is €1000 and the most you can win from it is €50,000. That is only 50x stake, paying that much money for a chance at 50x stake is nuts.
The only way to get that 50 is by landing three Wilds. The symbol values in this game are dismal. All of the lower value symbols are less than bet, unless you pull of some four and five in a row wins. It pressures and frustrates you into using the Super Bet feature and then your bank roll is gone.
Maybe we are just unlucky. But when testing games, we put a medium value bet on auto spin. We come back in an hours and see what’s what. This game emptied our bankroll, four out of the five times we did this.
Is this game worth playing?
Mixed feelings. It has a lot of features, and there are highs and lows. But the graphics are mediocre, the symbols have low values and this game demolished our bankroll.
The Super Bet feature, is a blatant rip off. All it really has going for it is the Free Spins game mode can be unlocked with a ridiculous bet on and for ten spins you don’t have to place the ridiculous bet. No we would not rush out to play this one.
