5. HOW TO PLAY
After the game has finished loading, chose the Witch you want to accompany you during the game and then select the coin value you want to play on. You can see the coin value on the bottom left corner of the screen, and you can change it at any time by clicking it. The selectable coin values are 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.5 and 1 in Euros. The chosen Witch will be highlighted and will battle the other Witch when Scatter symbols appear.
The chosen Witch can be changed from inside the game as well, by opening the Paytable (button above the coin value), navigating to the Select witch page and clicking the desired Witch.
To change the number of active lines to play on, click the LINES button. To change the amount bet, click the LINE BET button. The BET MAX button automatically spins the slots one time with all lines active and maximum number of coins.
Click the LINES button to select the number of active lines from 1, 5, 10 and 15. To select the active lines one by one, use the Up Arrow / Down Arrow keyboard keys.
Click the ‘SPIN’ button to spin the reels one time.
You can stop the reels faster by clicking the ‘STOP’ button – or you can wait for the reels to stop by themselves.
If you want to continue the game play with the previously played lines, coins and coin value, click the ‘Spin’ button.
If you do not have enough money to play a game, the bet (coin value*coins*lines) can be set to the minimum selectable amount through a dialog window informing about this.
To play Double, get at least a winning combination at the end of a game and click the Gamble button. Double is played with the previous amount won as a wager.
Double cannot be used when the game is in autoplay mode. If the player wishes to play DOUBLE using an amount won while playing in autoplay mode, the Autospin must first be stopped the before the next spin starts.
Before choosing a card, you can forfeit the Double round and collect the amount won until then.
In Double, you must guess if the middle card is Red Heart or Black Spade. You can double a maximum of five times per DOUBLE round.
- If guessed correctly, the amount wagered is doubled. You can collect after any correct guess.
- If guessed incorrectly, the amount wagered is lost and the DOUBLE round ends.
The bottom strip shows the previous cards; the latest card is the first card on the left of the cards strip.
Note: The Double option is not available for winnings from free spins, the bonus round or the scatter symbols.
- Wild symbol – replaces any symbols except Scatter and Bonus

7.1. Special Bewitched Feature
Free Spins – can be won during Scatter wins and Bonus round.
During the Free Spins, line winnings are doubled (except the Scatter winnings, the Bonus wins and Progressive jackpot).
The coin value, number of active lines and amount bet per line cannot be changed during the free spins and remain the same as the spin that awarded them (Bonus Round or Scatter Win).
Free Spins can be won during Free Spins. Retriggered Free Spins will be played after the original Free Spins are completed; just as the original free spins, the retriggered free spins gains will be doubled.
There is no limit to the amount of free spins that can be retriggered.
The winning combinations and gains for 1 coin bet per line are shown below:
|Symbol||Symbol X1||Symbol X2||Symbol X3||Symbol X4||Symbol X5|
All winning lines pay from left to right.
Wins on different selected lines are all added.
The wins from Bonus round, Jackpot and Free Spins are added to the balance.
The paytable lists the prizes for winning combinations; only the highest winning combination on each selected line is paid.
All prizes shown in the paytable are in coins.
The amount bet in Euros is displayed in the Bet meter and is the number of coins bet multiplied by the coin value multiplied by the number of lines selected.
The amount won in Euros is displayed in the Winnings meter and is the number of coins won multiplied by the coin value.
A mini Paytable is available for each symbol, accessible by clicking it.
9. BONUS (MERLIN)
Three or more Bonus symbols anywhere on the screen during Base game and Free Spins start the bonus round.
The player has to combine three Vials, and once the three vials are chosen, one of the following will be won:
- Euros: a random number between 15 and 300 (in Euros), times the total amount bet during the spin that awarded the Bonus. The maximum amount that can be won is 45000 Euros – 300 Euros, times the bet of 150 Euros (1 coin value, maximum number of lines and maximum number of coins per line).
- The Progressive Jackpot.
- Free spins: a random number of free spins between 15 and 60.
o During the Free Spins, line winnings are doubled (except the Scatter winnings, the Bonus wins and Progressive jackpot).
o The coin value, number of active lines and amount bet per line cannot be changed during the free spins and remain the same as the spin that awarded them (Bonus Round or Scatter Win).
o Free Spins can be won during Free Spins. Retriggered Free Spins will be played after the original Free Spins are completed; just as the original free spins, the retriggered free spins gains will be doubled.
o There is no limit to the amount of free spins that can be retriggered.
10. PROGRESSIVE JACKPOT
An individual Progressive Jackpot is available for each selectable coin value.
With every bet, the base progressive jackpot value (the progressive pool) is increased with 0.5% of that bet.
Note: The base progressive value (progressive pool) is a value stored in Euros and it is associated to a coin value of 10 Euros (which may not be available for you to select in the game): 500,000.00 seed + any 0.5% increments from all bets.
The Progressive Jackpot counters display the progressive jackpot value for the currently selected coin value. The displayed jackpot value is proportional to the selected coin value and is a portion of the progressive pool, calculated depending on the currently selected coin value.
Note: The maximum available progressive is paid when playing with the maximum available coin value.
|Jackpot Seed Value in Euros||500||1000||2500||5000||10000||25000||50000|
The Jackpot value is refreshed once every 3 seconds. Depending on the clients’ internet service provider as well as their hardware, server-to-client delays will vary from player to player and from message to message.
Between two successive refreshes of the Progressive Jackpot counter, it is possible for two or more players to win the jackpot in close succession. In this case, the first player that wins the Jackpot is awarded the Progressive Jackpot amount in full, while the subsequent winner is awarded the minimum guaranteed Progressive Jackpot, as well as 0.5% of the bets placed between the two successive Jackpot wins.
Click the AUTO SPIN button to start the autoplay feature with the previously used coins and previously selected coin value.
Click the STOP xx/25 button to stop the autoplay feature at any time.
On the STOP xx/25 button, 25 represents the total number of autoplay spins and xx represents the number of autoplay spins remaining.
The autoplay feature does not automatically play the Bonus, or starts the Free Spins – player confirmation is required.
