Spellcast slot from NetEnt

Spellcast slot from NetEnt
In 2011, NetEnt released the Spellcast slot machine with a timeless theme: Magic and sorcery. For centuries, sorcerers and their spells, prophecies, and alchemical/magical abilities have fascinated humankind and inspired many tales. Even the most skeptical and categorical atheist would like to be convinced that there is some truth in the power of the spells that are cast. For sure you would want to learn some good luck spells before you give this slot a try. Your wins will be celebrated by the sinister sorcerer’s haunting laugh. 

With medium volatility, an RTP of 96% and a maximum payout of 40 000 coins, this spine-chilling slot is surely worth a spin or two. Check the magic formula for free in the DEMO version here on our page. No registration required.

Review and recommendations by the testing team

  • This might be considered as a classic slot from NetEnt, but it didn’t stand the test of time. Maybe the sorcery theme is ageless, but technology has moved on through the years. The graphics and gameplay have really become outdated and the terrible sound effects only make the overall experience even worse. The sorcerers’ laugh might be amusing the first 5 times, but becomes old quickly. However, the good thing here is that the Scatters and Wilds are paid generously, which kept us hanging in there for some time.
  • In the base game, winning combinations are mostly low-paid, around 0.5x - 3x total bets. At the same time, it does have the potential for payouts of 30x-50x total bets, but it just doesn’t show that often.
  • The Free Spins are seldom triggered in series, and on average, the winnings from them are not that big (despite being tripled). During our long sessions, we had all kinds of results from the Free Spins. A few times we got measly winnings of 20x-40x the bets, while on other occasions we had better luck and scored some fair 100x results.

How to win at the Spellcast slot machine? (Conclusion)

  • What was, still is, and will always be our advice: be diligent and test the slot in DEMO mode, before depositing real money. 
  • The Spellcast slot is very suitable for games with bonus money, considering the frequency of Free Spins and the size of the payouts. It’s advisable to have a healthy reserve of bet balance at your disposal. It will allow you to survive until some combination of high-value symbols or the Free Spins is launched. Only with the bonus round, you might still have a chance to win back some of the money lost during the main game. 
  • We do not recommend this machine for playing with real money. If you decide to play here anyway, having a bet balance of 150x or more is advised, as the slot often goes to a long empty spins cycle. Observe the slot’s behaviour carefully, and if it doesn’t give out high-paid combinations in the base game and there are no significant payouts during the first Free Spins, better quit the session immediately.
