There is no tale left untold by the writers of slot games. We’ve cracked mysteries with Sherlock Holmes, explored mythical horoscopes with Lucky Zodiac and travelled to Mexico with Taco Bros. This time, we’re visiting the icy mountains to meet the Spin Sorceress. Legend has it that she has many magic spells up her sleeve; the sort of magic that adds multipliers to our slot reels! She also possesses a silver talisman that awards lots of free spins. No matter how clichéd or reused these slot themes are, you’ll never tire of discovering new features.

Spin Sorceress has 5 reels and 243 ways to win. It is great that there are so many paylines, but it also means that the game becomes quite expensive per spin. The game is playable from £1.25 to £250 per spin. There aren't any minimum bets of 50p or less in this game.
Spin Sorceress features SuperBet math model. If you add an additional wager to each spin, you’ll increase the magic multipliers that are applied to your wins. In other words, the richer you are, the more you stand to win. The more you dare to risk, the more you stand to win. This math model reflects the harsh realities of life quite well, doesn’t it?
|Bet Level||Additional wager per spin||Multiplier applied to your Wild Wins||RTP|
|SuperBet Level 1||50 coins||2x, 3x or 5x||95.08%|
|SuperBet Level 2||125 coins||5x, 8x or 12x||95.64%|
|SuperBet Level 3||200 coins||10x, 15x or 20x||96.06%|
|SuperBet Level 4||300 coins||15x, 20x or 25x||96.58%|
|SuperBet Level 5||500 coins||20x, 30x or 50x||97.14%|
You can trigger the SuperBet feature by clicking the button next to the Spin button. Each SuperBet level is a “spell”. If you can afford it, you’ll then cast this “spell” onto your reels and wait for multipliers to appear. I personally chose Level 2 or 3, as I could not stomach risking more than £10 per spin! The increased RTP percentages do look very tempting though.

You can choose to gamble your winnings on a Gamble round. This option is presented to you after you score a winning combination. You have to make two selections – red/black and one of the four playing card suits. It’s a tad more complicated that gamble features in other slot games. Usually, you only have to choose one of two options. In Spin Sorceress, you place larger bets and you pocket larger wins.
There’s the usual Wild symbol, which is the symbol with the blue-haired Sorceress herself. She appears on any of the three central reels (reel 2, 3 or 4), and substitutes for any other symbol to complete winning combinations. There’s a separate feature called the Sorceress Wild reels. The Sorceress appears on random to enchant an entire reel. This guarantees at least one Wild symbol to appear on that reel for the spin.
Finally, there’s a Sorceress Free Games feature. Score three or more scatter symbols (grey stones) on the reels and you’ll be rewarded with 10 free spins. During the free games feature, you’re guaranteed to get up to three Wild symbols on the reels.
The fantasy theme of the slot is well fleshed out. The developers have composed their very own cinematic soundtrack, an impressive one that wouldn’t look out of place in a Hollywood film! The background of the slot is a detailed drawing of a snowy mountain landscape. The symbols on the reels look very professionally drawn, quite unlike the cartoony feel displayed by many other slots today. Just look at that magnificent husky, or the magical sapphire wand! Even the alphabets look especially regal.
Another winner from NextGen
It is good to see large developers like NextGen put forward slots like this one – there is a unique value proposition and meticulous graphics as well. There are many times where they sacrifice quality for quantity, just so that they can churn out new slots and claim a spot on the “New games” section of the casino. When this happens, we players must endure overused graphics and standard features. Although there are more than 200 games on the NextGen Gaming portfolio, each one of them are worthy of playing.
Very frankly speaking, this is quite an expensive slot to play. The minimum bet costs £1.25! Plus, the Gamble and the SuperBet features incur an additional risk (and cost) to your gameplay. I’d go even further to say that these features are ploys to make you spend even more. It takes many, many spins before you recover the cost of your investment, let alone make a profit. That being said, should you have pockets deep enough to play with, Slot Sorceress is the game for you. There aren’t many slots out there where you can toggle the payouts and multipliers simply by wagering more so it's definitely a unique experience!
