WitchyPoppins Slot Review 2024

Head deep into the cursed forest where malevolent witches guide you through mysterious lands and magical new features in AvatarUX’s latest release, WitchyPoppins!

Witness with your own eyes AvatarUX’s latest Nudge Feature that can manipulate the reels by nudging up or down in search of winning combinations and Bonus Scatters. 

The enchanting experience continues in Free Spins, where a single High-paying Witch symbol will become your Pay Anywhere symbol, forming wins just by being present on the reels. 

The magic carries on when Wild symbols show up, empowering the witches and offering even greater potential. With all these features mixed into one glorious concoction, we’re in for a truly magical time, but don’t let the spooky vibes and haunted lights put you off!

Each time a winning combination forms, all winning symbols will be removed from the reels which are then replaced by 2 new symbols, increasing the reel height. 

This continues until there are no more winning combinations present on the reels. In the base game, reels can expand up to 5×6 symbols high.

Nudge Feature

During gameplay, Nudges can randomly occur that bump the reels up or down to improve a win. Below is an example of the possible nudges that can occur. 

  • Nudge of a Bonus Scatter in order to trigger Free Spins in the base game, or additional Free Spins in the Bonus round. 
  • Nudge of a symbol to trigger a higher reel height. 
  • Nudge of a Pay Anywhere symbol. 
  • Nudge of a Wild symbol.

WitchyPoppins Free Spins

Landing 3, 4, or 5 Bonus Scatters in the base game triggers the Free Spins round. 

Depending on the number of triggering Scatters, you will be awarded a random number of Free Spins as follows. 

  • 3 Scatters – Awards between 5 and 7 Free Spins and 4 reel heights active.
  • 4 Scatters – Awards between 6 and 8 Free Spins and 5 reel heights active.
  • 5 Scatters – Awards between 7 and 9 Free Spins and 6 reel heights active.

During Free Spins, when wins occur, the reels can increase to a maximum of 8 symbols high. When this happens, an additional +2 Free Spins are awarded. 

The Free Spins round also has an active Global Win Multiplier that increases by +x1 with each pop that occurs. The Global Win Multiplier is applied to all future wins during this time.

If a Multiplicative symbol lands on the same spin as a winning combination, it will multiply the Global Win Multiplier between x2 and x11. However, landing an additive Multiplier symbol with a win will add between +5 and +50 to the Multiplier. 

Pay Anywhere Symbols

At the start of Free Spins, you will be awarded a random High-paying symbol from the paytable that will become your Pay Anywhere symbol for the entire round. 

The chosen Pay Anywhere symbol does not have to be adjacent to others in order for it to pay out, but 3 or more of these symbols are required on separate reels to class as a win. 

  • Less than 5 Pay Anywhere symbols – Does not pay.
  • 5-6 Pay Anywhere symbols – Valued at 250.
  • 7-8 Pay Anywhere symbols – Valued at 500.
  • 9-10 Pay Anywhere symbols – Valued at 1,000.
  • 11-15 Pay Anywhere symbols – Valued at 2,000.
  • 16-20 Pay Anywhere symbols – Valued at 2,500.
  • 21-25 Pay Anywhere symbols – Valued at 4,000.
  • 26-30 Pay Anywhere symbols – Valued at 8,000.
  • 31-35 Pay Anywhere symbols – Valued at 10,000.

WitchyPoppins: Our Verdict

WitchyPoppins is a spooktacular slot that fits in nicely with the upcoming festivities, yet keeps much-loved gameplay and features alive from a series of games from the legends that are AvatarUX. 

AvatarUX’s latest release, DonKey & the Goats left us bewildered by the fact that it wasn’t a PopWins special. We’ve all become accustomed to AvatarUX’s PopWins and MultiPop mechanics, so much so, that we wouldn’t expect anything less in a new release. 

DonKey & the Goats seemed to be the exception, yet it didn’t take long for AvatarUX to jump back on the PopWins wagon in WitchyPoppins. 

However, AvatarUX has switched things up a little by introducing a Nudge Feature that aids in forming wins and triggering Free Spins. Not the most flavourable feature that comes to mind, yet it’s one that AvatarUX fans will certainly approve of given what it’s capable of.

On a good day, WitchyPoppins can deliver max wins of up to 20,000x. This figure matches PixiePOP, but it’s a far cry from the 50,000x max win cap seen in HipHopPop
