Join a wizard owl and his trusty apprentice in Ozwin’s Jackpots, a magical, fantasy-themed video slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. This 5 reel, 20 payline game comes with superb sound and visuals, free spins with 3x multipliers, a pick me round and a chance to win 1 of 5 progressive jackpots. Wave your wand from between 20p and £40 per spin.
Yggdrasil Gaming are one of the market leaders when it comes to the look and sound of their video slots and Ozwin’s Jackpot maintains their lofty standards. The design here is absolutely terrific and has a genuinely fantastical feel. Joining the hearts, diamond, suit and spade symbols are a bottle of potion, a compass, the wizard’s assistant and Ozwin the Owl.
The owl is the most lucrative symbol, awarding 70, 250 or 4,000 coins if you land 3, 4 or 5 in combination. There are 2 bonus features on offer in Ozwin’s Jackpots which are described below:
- Spellbook Bonus Game feature – this is triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 spellbook scatters. Prizes of 50 or 500 times your stake are awarded if you trigger the feature for 4 or 5 scatters. You’ll then be whisked off to a new screen and offered a choice of spellbooks. Behind each one lurks a prize of up to 50 times your stake, a crystal to add to your base game collection or an evil spell. The round continues until you uncover the evil spell.
- Jackpot Free Spins feature – land 3, 4 or 5 of the blue orb and you’ll receive 10 free spins (plus 50 or 500 times your stake if you land 4 or 5 orbs). You can also trigger the 10 free spins by collecting matching pieces of the same coloured crystal in the Spellbook Bonus Game feature. Either way, all payouts during the feature benefit from a 3x multiplier and are tripled.
Special coloured orbs are added to the reels during the free spins. Each time they hit, they are collected in a meter above the reel. If you manage to light up all 5 spaces on a particular meter, you’ll pocket the associated Novice, Apprentice, Mystic, Wizard or Archmage jackpot.
Yggdrasil Gaming has packed a lot into this game – good design is a given in games from this developer but they’ve exceeded even those lofty expectations here. The imagery is fantastic and the sweeping, orchestral score is a perfect match. The features offer a nice variety too. Expect to land both at regular intervals too. We’d put the variance in the medium range.
Easy on the eyes and ears and offering some enjoyable features, Ozwin’s Jackpots is a very playable all round. Get lucky with those extras and this wise old Owl can conjure up some sparkling action. I also suggest you try some of their other superb offerings with Rainbow Ryan and Chibeasties 2 recommended.
