This five reel slot echoes the look and feel of a sort of Harry Potter Hogwarts set up, but with computer generated characters.

What’s the headline? The 160,000 coins the slot boasts it can pay out.

The early signs are that this will carry an RTP of 96.38%, offering 20 paylines. Bet levels range from 0.20 coins up to 200.00 if you so wish.

What sets it apart?

This slot quest follows Efora the Witch and Earthan the Wizard as they look to gather treasures and magical items.

The feature players will really want to unlock is the Elements Bonus, triggered when three scatter symbols appear on any of the reels.

This takes you to a game grid bonus game where you get to chose to be Efora or Earthan to cast an Elemental Shot at a column. The bonus can offer an x2 multiplier, +5 free spins and overlaying reels.

The Elemental Shot could hit the Coin Win bonus, giving a player a random coin win of between 10 and 200 times the bet level. If the Armour Guard symbol is activated, it explodes, hitting symbols next to it and generating wins.

The maximum coin win in the Elements Bonus is 20,000.

More, and where to play

So if you’re looking for the big bucks, then maximising the potential in the free spins round can generate those really eye-watering wins.

But it needs to considered that his is a medium to high variance slot – meaning that wins may be infrequent, but when they come, expect fireworks. Players who prefer a ‘little and often’ slot should steer clear.

In terms of where to play, players are spoilt for choice as NetEnt supplies a huge range of casinos. However, it isn’t widely available yet, so look out for this at casinos offering NetEnt games, including Power Spins Casino, Casino Euro, ComeOn Casino and All British Casino.
