Novomatic Sorceress Slot Review and Free Play

Sorceress: Demo

Myth and magic are the themes on offer in Sorceress, a super high variance video slot from Novomatic. Played using a 5 reel, 50 payline game engine, this fantasy-themed game comes with a bonus round that awards 10 free spins complete with special expanding symbols that fill the whole reel whenever they hit. Wave your magic wand from between 50p and £50 per spin.

It might not be up there with the best around but the sound and visuals on show in Sorceress aren’t bad, especially for a Novomatic-powered title. The plain black reels include Celtic-style A to 9 playing cards alongside a range of people and objects associated with the sorcery theme.

You’ll see scrolls of spells and bottle of potions which pay up to 300 coins per payline, a phoenix style amulet which pays up to 500 coins and a red dragon which awards up to 2,500 coins. The best symbol is the sorceress – land 3, 4 or 5 of the mystery magician and you’ll pocket 100, 1,000 or 5,000 coins.

Joining the standard symbols is the green crystals symbol. This is the game’s wild and scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of them and you’ll receive a payout of 2, 20 or 200 times your total stake. You’ll also trigger the Free Games feature – here you can look forward to 10 free spins, complete with a special expanding symbol that will fill the whole reel whenever it lands.

Which symbols is the special expander is chosen via the Switching Spell feature. The game’s symbols will appear 1 at a time in a random order. If you like what you see, accept. If you hope for something potentially more rewarding then you can switch. You’ll be awarded 5, 6 or 7 switches depending on whether you triggered the feature with 3, 4 or 5 crystal scatters.

Like many Novomatic video slots, the design here is simple and there’s a free spins round with a neat little extra. What makes their games so playable is the high variance and this is as volatile as you’ll find anywhere. Expect plenty of lean spells when the Sorceress’s magic will make your bankroll disappear. Get lucky with the expanding symbols and she can conjure up some terrific action though. If you like volatile offerings, Novomatic has plenty to offer.
