Nextgen Just Launched Witch Pickings Pokie
Witch Pickings is a new pokie from NextGen Gaming. For those of you who don’t know, NextGen Gaming are one of the biggest pokie developers on God’s green Earth.
They have released over 600 titles, since 1999 when the company was founded. Witch Pickings is themed around three colourful witches. We see witches as evil woman, with boils on the ends of their noses. These witches are young and attractive practisers of magic challenging the stereotype.
What we like
We like the overall theme and design of this game. It is an exceptionally designed pokie with crisp graphics. NextGen are in knowhow about designing a pretty game. The background image is very well made and creates a world of fantasy, for the reels.
It is set at the end of an enchanted forest, which is clearing to a grass field, littered with the occasional flower or mushroom. A cobblestone path meanders up the rolling green hill towards, a pointed castle. Even the Spin Button is inside a mushroom, this is a thorough theme.
NextGen Gaming is a little bit renowned for their love of the twenty five-payline pokie, and we are fine with it, because they draw a generous line between win frequency and symbol value. In this game, you win often and above the wager, which keeps your bankroll steady. This game has great base gameplay. There are high value symbols; the highest win is given for five in a row with the wild, which rewards £2000, but even the small wins will exceed the wager.
There is a free spins feature, which gets a little more intimate with the three witches. You trigger it by landing three of the Witch Scatter Symbols. Then in a cloud of purple smoke, the witches appear and wave their hands around, to magic in the free spins. In the next screen, you select a bonus feature from each of the witches, and take three symbols into the free spins game.
They are generic features, and we could list them all but the information is available in the Paytable. The free spins are paid at the value of the bet, which unlocked them, and you are given five free spins, but there is a feature pick, to get that up to ten. Now that the formalities are over we need to tell you that this is a great free spins game. You can get strategic about it and mix and match feature for the best possible wins. It is an extremely lucrative game mode, which we won quite a bit of money playing.
There is a gamble feature, which we have a love hate relationship with. Gamble features make a game interesting but they do so, at the expense of your feeling of self-worth. We are unable just to take a win, and we lose more than we win to these features. However, it is there is you are feeling lucky.
What we do not like
There is not much bad we can say about this game. NextGen Gaming has done a great job. Is we were to really pick at it. It would be nice to have more than just a free spins feature, but it is a nice free spins feature.
Is this game worth playing?
This game is very worth playing. NextGen have done well to make a title of such quality. This game looks great, with its colourful design, exceptional graphics, and animations. It is more than just a pretty face.
There is a lucrative free spin feature and great winning potential, tied up in a maximum payout of £50,000. We recommend this game to all pokie players, who like nice things.
