Witch Doctor Wild is a 5x4 reel 40 win line ‘reactor’ slot!
Please note that this game is connected to the CORE JACKPOT BONUS (CJB). This game has 7% RTP allocated to the CJB.
Each press of PLAY will action each reel to spin to a random position. Wins are paid for matching some 2 of-a-kind and all 3, 4 or 5 of-a-kind symbols.
The player can choose their stake by pressing the “+” and “-” buttons on the left of the screen. The stake will be shown in the Total Stake meter.
Pressing the rotating arrow icon, above the ‘PLAY’ arrow button, will open a dialogue panel from which the player can access the autoplay options.
Pressing the ‘menu’ button icon, on the right-hand side above the ‘Autoplay’ button, will open the information from which the player can access the paytable information. The player can press the arrows back and forth to access all other game information. Pressing the ‘X’ button will exit the information and return the player to the main game interface.
Accessing the ‘cog’ button will allow the player access to toggle the sounds on/off and, on compatible devices, the player can also turn on/off the vibrate function. On launch of the game, the default setting will be ON for both of these options.
“+” and “-” buttons on ‘Total Stake’ adjust the player's total stake on each spin.
All wins are paid left to right. All line win symbols must appear on a played line and on consecutive reels, beginning with the far left.
Any symbols of the same kind creating a win will 'shatter' and disappear. New symbols to replace the vacant areas left by those shattered symbols, drop vertically (cascade) into place. Any further symbols creating winlines will also shatter and disappear creating further cascades.
All wins shown on different winlines will be shown and paid to the player.
The Wild symbol can substitute for ALL other symbols EXCEPT scatter symbols to help create a line win. Using a Wild symbol to complete a line does not incur any extra multiplier, other than the win for the symbol(s) it substitutes. Only the highest paying win on each line will be counted. Wilds will only be available via the action of the ‘Witch Doctor Cascade Trail’.
Witch Doctor Cascade Trail: Wild symbols will NOT be present during a normal spin. However, Wilds will be summoned on to the reels by the ‘Witch Doctor’ after each winning cascade. The cascade trail is presented as stone blocks with the Witch Doctor sitting on top of the stacked stone column.
After every cascade, the trail will increment up to the Witch Doctor, who will add a number of Wilds to the reels (see table below). Wilds can be applied to any symbol, whether it came from the original spin or from a cascade.
If the player gets 6 consecutive cascades, then the trail end is reached. The Witch Doctor will activate and award a Colossal Wild in a position that guarantees a win. This is the end-point of the trail feature. Wins achieved after the award of the Colossal symbol will not shatter and don’t create another cascade. The trail is reset before the next game.
If the player gets a losing result from a cascade, the current game is over and the trail is reset before the next game.
If 3 bonus scatter symbols land on reels 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5, this triggers the 10 Free Spins feature. For each extra scatter symbol 5 more Free Spins are given as follows:
3 scatter symbols = 10 initial Free Spins
4 scatter symbols = 15 initial Free Spins
5 scatter symbols = 20 initial Free Spins
Once activated, the Witch Doctor will animate showing a new costume for the Free Spins feature. The background will change to a night scene and the Witch Doctor will now hold a new staff.
Free Spins feature: As in the base game, winning combinations will be paid to the player and also shatter away, creating spaces for the symbol above to cascade down into the empty space. This cascade may create further wins and more cascades
The player will get an initial amount of Free Spins from bonus symbols. However, during the Free Spins feature, there will be bonus scatter symbols landing on all reels. Then there is a retrigger and extra Free Spins are awarded.
2 Bonus trigger symbols in Free Spins retrigger - 5 extra Free Spins.
3 Bonus trigger symbols in Free Spins retrigger - 10 extra Free Spins.
4 Bonus trigger symbols in Free Spins retrigger - 15 extra Free Spins.
5 Bonus trigger symbols in Free Spins retrigger - 20 extra Free Spins.
Cascade Multiplier Trail: Any winning combination is paid at the current multiplier level. Winning symbols then ‘pop’, create a cascade and increment the Cascade Multiplier by one step, to the values in the table below:
Once all cascades have stopped, the Cascade Multiplier is reset to first value, ready for the next free spin.
Witch Doctor: During Free Spins, if the player has a single losing spin, then the Witch Doctor will activate the “Free Spins Wild Modifier”.
Free Spins Wild Modifier: The Witch Doctor will summon 1, 2 or 3 “Flaming Wilds” onto the reels. These Wilds stick on the reels between Free Spins, have a lifetime of 3 winning cascade shatters and will drop with a cascade just like other symbols. Each Wild loses a life when it would normally shatter. Once all lives are lost, (on the 3rd win), the Wild will shatter and disappear like a normal symbol. During the Free Spins feature, the modifier may activate several times, adding additional ‘Flaming Wilds’ to the reels.
All wins will be relative to current total bet and the base game paytable.

During any spin on the game, a firework rocket may shoot up from the Party Pots area, located at the bottom of the screen. If this explodes, then the Party Pots feature has been activated.

CASH - a cash value that gets added to your Total Win.
JACKPOT - win the current progressive amount for the Party in play.
COLLECT - ends the Party event.
TICKET - gain 3 VIP tickets to be upgraded to the next Party.
It is possible to be upgraded through all 7 Parties. The Party event is only over if the player finds ‘COLLECT’.
A progressive pot is only available to be won during the correlating Party ‘pick me’ level.

Only the highest win per bet line is paid.
Line wins will pay from left to right only.
Adjustment of the stake will dynamically alter the awards in the paytable.
In the event of a game in real play being interrupted,, (i.e. started but not completed due to connectivity issues or accidentally closing the browser, etc.), depending on the previous state of the game, it will either resume from the point of the last spin or display the outcome of the game already in play. The current multiplier on that stake will also be displayed.
Any winnings will be correctly credited to the player account and will be exact according to the result prior to the game being interrupted.
