Voodoo Vibes Slot from NetEnt
This NetEnt designed game takes a different approach, with black magic and Voodoo being the central theme. On the reels you’ll find a series of ‘dark’ symbols including a skull candle, a voodoo priest and priestess, a chicken, a red potion and a snake, while a pin cushion style dolls play a major role both on and off the reels as part of the bonus feature. A free spins round is the highlight, where a 3x multiplier is applied to every win.
How to Win on Voodoo Vibes
You’ll quickly realize that the Voodoo priest is one of the most sought after symbols. This s by far the highest paying symbol, worth 7,500 coins for the maximum five in a row, while even four in a row offers the second highest payout of the real money casino game at 2,000 coins. This symbol also acts as the wild, meaning it will substitute for any other symbol (apart from the bonus and the scatter), ensuring that the priest’s black magic will ensure many additional wins.
The skull candle, the priestess, the chicken and the red potion have top payouts of 500, 250, 250 and 125 coins respectively. The standard symbols are completed by purple, orange, green and red patterns which pay between 100 and 75 coins.
Pin-Sticking Voodoo Vibes Bonus Features
The bonus symbol is the pin cushion doll and will activate the bonus game when you land three of these in a row on a win line from left to right. You’ll now enter a second screen game where you’ll see a wooden cabinet holding three rows of four pin cushion dolls. You’ll now choose which of these dolls to stick a pin into in turn. Your aim is to pick the dolls that award immediate prizes and you’ll continue racking up the wins until you eventually pick a doll that doesn’t award a prize, at which point the round will end and you’ll be paid out the accumulated wins.
A green snake acts as the scatter symbol and you’ll earn an immediate win when 2 or more appear across any of the reels, with a max payout of 100x your total stake for the maximum five. However, land three or more of these scatters and you’ll also enter the free spins bonus round. You’ll be awarded 10 free spins in total and any wins in each of these spins will be the subject of a 3x multiplier – this would be a very good time to land those 5 wilds in a row! Land another 3 or more scatters during the feature and an additional 10 free spins will be added to your total.
Dark Magic Design
As you might expect from a Voodoo inspired slot, the setting is a dark, nighttime scene. Two wooden torches stand either side of a hut and above the wooden door you’ll find a skull. Next to the green title of the slot you’ll also find a skull, while skulls are also found throughout the perimeter of the slot. All of the symbols are drawn in a cartoon style, adding both character and color to the reels, while the accompanying sound is fittingly eerie, especially when the Voodoo Priest wild symbol lets out a haunting laugh.
You can play any number of lines between 1 and 25, with the maximum 25 set as the default. Your total stake is a combination of the number of lines, the bet level (between 1 and 10) and the coin value (between 1c and 50c). Auto play is offered as a NetEnt standard.
Voodoo Vibes has a nicely produced original theme and is highly playable too. The features aren’t the most unique you’ll find online, although a free spins round with a 3x multiplier and a pick round where the payouts can be extremely large are both worth landing. The sound and graphics are appealing too, so if you want to play a game that is ‘darker’ than the rest, this is well worth a spin or two.
