Spin and Spell is a 5-reel video slot with 20 pay lines which was released by BGaming in 2019. Carrying a medium to high variance and an RTP of 95.8%, this video slot is available to desktop and mobile players and comes packed with special bonus features such as expanding wilds, scatter symbols, free spins, and a gamble round.
Themed around Halloween, you will be tasked with making symbol combinations using various spooky symbols such as witches, bats, pumpkins, black cats, and potions. For the best wins, however, the free spins round and expanding wilds should be your ultimate goal.
Players can wager as little as 0.20 per spin or as much as 50.00 per spin. Each of the 20 pay lines will be covered by the spin bet. To establish how much you have wagered on each pay line, divide the ‘Total Bet’ by 20.
Desktop players: To set your bets using a desktop or laptop devices, simply click ‘Total Bet’ and select a bet amount or scroll through them using the arrow buttons.
Mobile players: To change these bet settings using mobile devices, players will have to first go into the menu where they will find the controls for adjusting bet sizes.
Once you have set your bets, all you have to do is hit the ‘Spin’ button. There is also an ‘Autoplay’ feature that can be configured to set some automatic spins.
BGaming has done a solid job with the HD graphics which are perfectly optimised to run on various devices such as computers, tablets, and smartphones. The symbols have been drawn in a cartoon-style while the background is that of a creepy-looking graveyard. A theme-related soundtrack also plays as you spin the reels and this sets the tone of Spin and Spell perfectly.
The music and the sound effects can be disabled or adjusted in the menu while players have the ability to enjoy this slot in full-screen mode at mBit Casino.
In total, there are 13 symbols on the reels of the Spin and Spell video slot. One of these is a ‘Haunted House’ scatter symbol that will pay out when landed 3, 4, or 5 times anywhere on the reels. All other symbols will pay out when landed in 3x, 4x, and 5x symbol combinations starting from the leftmost reel.
The ‘Vamp’ wild symbol offers the best reward with it being worth 1,000x the bet per line when landed in a 5-symbol combination. Other symbols include three different witches, a bat, black cat, witches hat, pumpkin, and four different potions.
Click into the menu to view the paytable which will show you the rewards that can be earned by completing winning combinations.
How to Read the Paytable
The values next each symbol combination are multiples of the line bet that you win. An example would be if you bet 20.00 per spin. This number divided by the 20 pay lines is 1.00. Therefore, if the paytable says 500 as a reward, this actually means that you will win 500x that line bet of 1.00, which is 500.00.
The only exception is the scatter symbol that pays out as a multiple of your ‘Total Bet’. So, land 4 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and as per the paytable, you will win 10x your total spin bet.
Free Spins: Players that land the scatter symbol at least 3 times anywhere in view will be given 10 free spins. These free spins can be retriggered from within the game while the wild symbols will all become expanding wilds during the round.
Bonus Gamble Game: The bonus gamble game can be used optionally after each win from the reels. During this game, you can double your winnings by picking one of the eyeballs in the cauldron. If the eyeball does not burst, you win.
The ‘Vamp’ symbol is the wild symbol on the Spin and Spell video slot. It will substitute for all symbols apart from the scatter symbol. During the free spins round, it becomes an expanding wild which will grow to take up the entire reel that it lands on.
