The recurring topic of witchcraft has appeared in games countless times. It seems that we are obsessed with the unknown or the inexplicable, as the spicy aura of such games attracts millions of players worldwide.
Playtech, one of the best game providers in the industry, is one of those who gazed down the magical well with its sensational 5-reel Legacy of the Wild slot. The result is amazing – heaps of free spins and bonuses are on offer for players who dare to enter the magical realm.
The Den of Magic
The game is set inside a magical workshop of some sorts. At the centre is a table filled with witchcraft paraphernalia that evokes the atmosphere typical for the Middle Ages. Books are scattered around the room, and there is even a skull on the bookshelf as well a cauldron in the corner. The odd vibe is amplified with the spooky, yet intriguing music, making the whole experience completely spellbinding.
The Legacy of the Wild Slot reels are filled with amulets and tiles representing magic-wielding characters. The five amulets have lower denominations, while the characters will pay out more. There is the witch, one apprentice, and two nasty-looking demons and warlocks. The wizard with the beard resembling Gandalf pays out the most.
The Wild is an expanding symbol which can substitute any title on the reels. When it appears, it triggers the special Book of Wilds feature, giving the players a chance to significantly boost their winnings.
As a sorcerer, your job is to defeat ghastly demons and goblins which appear on the reels. The Collapsing Reels feature enables the tiles involved in the winning combination to disappear and be replaced with new tiles falling from above. Once they fall into the freed positions, they can form another hit, and the round lasts until there are no more possible hits on the reel set. Here you’ll notice the meter on the left side. With each hit, the Wave-o-meter will rise for one step signalling that one wave of the tiles has passed.
The meter consists of 10 crystal balls which light up as you score winning combinations. After five consecutive wins or five consecutive lighted crystal balls, you will be able to unlock Free Spins. Depending on how far you get on the meter, in Legacy of the Wild Slot you will be awarded 8, 10, 15, 20, 30, and 50 spins, respectively. However, after the second wave, another feature can appear. The Book of Wilds features the Wild expanding on the tiles next to the original one.
With each wave, the number of tiles onto which it can expand grow for one tile, meaning that for example, in the fifth wave the wild will expand onto four more positions adjacent to the original tile. As the Free Games cannot be re-triggered, the best option is the expanding wild that can bring hefty prizes.
The Alluring Possibilities
The Legacy of the Wild slot doesn’t come with a high level of volatility – in fact, the volatility is medium. The bigger prizes can be obtained in the free rounds, but it will take a lot of patience to get there.
You can start playing with €0.40 per spin, but if you like to splurge a little bit, the maximum bet for all 40 lines is €120 per spin. Legacy of the Wild Slot is available on all devices, including mobile, desktop, and tablet.
