Design and Symbols
This five-reel, four-row video-slot, has a magic theme that instantly reminds us about this slightly popular “school of witchcraft and wizardry” themed fiction series brought to you both on the big screen and in books some 15 years ago. Everything from the fonts used, symbols and the background music takes us to this school.

When it comes to symbols and special features in Witchcraft Academy, you will find the normal wild symbol, a scatter symbol and a bonus game enabling anything from extra free spins to multipliers. The lower paying symbols include the heart, club, diamond and spade-shaped potion bottles. The higher paying symbols involve the owl, the dragon, Efora the witch and Earthan the Wizard. The wild is made up of an armour shield with a ‘W’ across it and the scatter is made up of a tile with the word Bonus across it.
The Scatter symbols can appear anywhere on the reels and if you get at least three, you will activate the Elements Bonus game. This is the only bonus round that Witchcraft Academy has; apart from this, you just spin your way until you either win big or you’re done playing.

You will be presented with a new game window, where you will notice two wizards Efora and Earthan, and a “board” with several cash-filled pots, armoured guards, multipliers and scatter symbols. To start off the bonus game, all you need to do is click on the wizard you would like to shoot, and wait for them to select a column at random. If you hit three or more scatter symbols during the Elements Bonus game, you will activate free spins with the extra unlocked Free Spins feature.

Armoured Guards help you more than block you in Witchcraft Academy. Whenever you hit one of them, the guards will explode all symbols next to them both horizontally and vertically. The Scatter symbols in the back can only be activated once, and when one of your wizards hit them, the feature the symbol represent will be active on the upcoming free spins. During your free spins rounds in Witchcraft Academy, additional spins can be won, whenever two or more “bonus spin” symbols appear during the spins:
- 2 Bonus Spin Symbols = 5 Free Spins
- 3 Bonus Spin Symbols = 10 Free Spins
- 4 Bonus Spin Symbols = 15 Free Spins
- 5 Bonus Spin Symbols = 20 Free Spins
Reviewers' thoughts on Witchcraft Academy
After a good 30 minutes trying out the spins in Witchcraft Academy, we have to say the slot itself is OK. The bonus game has great potential due to the possibility to get additional free spins during bonus spins. That said, the variance in this slot is not on top of the marked, but with a promised RTP of 96.38%, it’s sure to give you some bang for the buck.
