AvatarUX casts a symbol-popping spell to claim Slot of the Week

AvatarUX has bewitched the rest of the competition to claim SlotBeats’ latest Slot of the Week award with Witchy Poppins, a PopWins title filled with frightening features such as explosive multipliers and pay-anywhere symbols. 

Implementing its flagship mechanic into a 5×3 reel grid, Witchy Poppins offers up to 32,768-ways to win while players can grab prizes of up to x20,000 their stake. This witchcraft-fuelled title uses an RTP of 96 per cent.

Nicola Longmuir, CEO at AvatarUX, stated: “Halloween is always a wonderful time to create fantastic games with a theme that really appeals to players with its seasonality.

“Powered by our PopWins mechanic, Witchy Poppins is another engaging, exciting title in our portfolio that we’re certain will resonate with our fans across the world.

“With the success of our PopWins mechanic, we are now excited to roll out a new type of game, jam-packed with features and win potential, that showcases the innovation and diversity that AvatarUX can offer.”

With AvatarUX’s PopWins mechanic, each winning combination of symbols that is formed will pop and disappear. These symbols will then be replaced by two extra symbols that drop in to increase the win potential. 

This feature allows the reel set to increase to a maximum size of 5×6, while any symbols that pop while the reels are this size will only be replaced by one symbol. 

To provide thrills in the base game, nudge features can randomly occur, causing the reels to nudge either upwards or downwards to enhance the spin. This can cause winning symbols, bonus scatters and wild symbols to be placed on the board to increase the win potential. 

As the free spins feature begins, one random paytable symbol is chosen to be enhanced throughout the game mode. These symbols will become ‘pay anywhere’ symbols, allowing them to form winning combinations anywhere across the board, as long as five or more individual symbols appear across the reels. 

Landing between five and 35 ‘pay anywhere’ symbols across the reel set can provide wins between x12.5 and x500 the player’s preferred bet. 

Additionally, a win multiplier sits above the reel set throughout the game mode. Starting with a value of x1, this multiplier can be enhanced by both additive and multiplicative enhancement symbols that can appear throughout the feature. 

Multiplicative symbols can range from x2 to x11 – depending on how the player activated the free spins feature – and additive multipliers can range from +5 to +50. 

These multipliers will then cause any win that is formed during the free spins game mode to be multiplied by their values that are displayed above the board. 

Hannah Farrugia, Head of Product & Product Strategy at AvatarUX, added: “Witchy Poppins invites you to a spellbinding journey where the timeless PopWins mechanic meets the enchanting world of witches. You’ll experience reel nudges for better wins and explosive multipliers that multiply or increase your bonus multiplier even further. 

“One of our gorgeous witches also randomly transforms into a pay anywhere symbol – the witch’s magic can land a x10,000 paytable win if 31 or more of these symbols land on the board. Witchy Poppins is a magical brew full of features that keeps you on your toes.”
