Software great, Quickspin, has concocted another magical online pokies release, perfect for New Zealand’s players, Wild Cauldron. The light-hearted and colourful creation is filled with little monsters, potions and loads of magical payouts, thanks to the game’s unique Tumble mechanics and thrilling features, which include Expanding Ways, Locking Symbol Tumbles, Free Spins and Win Multipliers. One thing’s for sure, this game brews a lot of excitement.
Since Wild Cauldron is a ways-to-win game, there are no paylines to select when getting started. The game kicks off with a 4-row, 6-reel grid, offering a massive 4,096 bet ways. But what makes this game truly remarkable is that its layout can expand into an 8-row, 6-reel one too, packed with a gigantic 262,144 bet ways.
Like magic, more rows can appear on the reels of Wild Cauldron. How does it work? Each winning symbol combo tumble will increase the amount of winning ways by adding another row of symbols to the grid. With 4 rows, you’ll enjoy 4,096 ways, while 5 rows equal 15,625 ways, and 6 rows, an impressive 46,656 ways. When 7 rows appear, you can look forward to 117,649 ways and when all 8 rows are visible, the ways to win can increase up to an impressive 262,144.
Online pokies players in New Zealand, who enjoy Free Spins can rest assured that the game offers its fair share. When 4 Bonus Scatters appear, 8 Free Spins are awarded. In turn, when 5 or 6 Bonus Scatters show up, 10 or 12 Free Spins will respectively be awarded. What’s more, if 2 Bonus Scatters appear during Free Spins, 2 extra Free Spins will be awarded.
As one can see, there are ample winning ways on the reels and rows of Wild Cauldron. Also noticeable is that way symbols drop down from above and vanish at the bottom, rather than reels spinning. And the symbol collection? It’s composed of low value rune symbols, along with differently coloured small little monster symbols. Finding between 3 and 6 matching symbols in a winning format, pockets a payout. Also keep an eye out for the W symbols, which acts as the game’s Wild and substitutes for other symbols. Each time it helps to create a winning symbol combination, the Win Multiplier increases by 1, and can go as high as 7. Plus, look out for the green potion symbol, which acts as the Bonus Scatter.
Wild Cauldron certainly qualifies as a modern video pokies machine with an impressive way-wins feature and tumbling symbols instead of spinning reels. This new take online pokies is popular in New Zealand as well as many other regions – not just because it’s visually entertaining, but also rather rewarding. Players who are keen to give it a go, should be able to find it in the pokies line-up at most reputable online and mobile casinos, using software from Quickspin.
