Bewitched Spin

AC Coin & Slot

This new game applies the theme of the 1960s sitcom Bewitched-first used several years ago in a game in AC Coin’s “Slotto” bonus-ball series-to the company’s “Slotto Spin” series, a group of games placing the Slotto sphere inside a wheel display with spots granting various numbers of bonus balls and multiplier amounts.

The base game is the newest version of the IGT three-reel classic “Triple Stars.” The pay schedule is the traditional Triple Stars table, with four different “7” combinations and the Triple Stars wild symbol, which triples jackpots in winning combinations and multiplies the prize by nine if two wild symbols land in a win. “Bewitched Spin” places this base game in three-reel multi-line formats-it is available in five-line or nine-line versions, with a maximum wager of 75 credits or 135 credits, respectively.

When three “Bewitched” symbols land on an active payline, a button on the panel begins to flash. When the player touches the button, lights begin to flash around the circular game board, lighting each bonus space until stopping on one to award either a number of bonus balls or a multiplier award. If the flashing stops on a multiplier-there are 2X and 5X spots-the number applies to the first bonus ball selected in the bonus round, and the flashing continues until landing one, two or three bonus balls.

The Slotto sphere then does its thing, circulating the balls on air until the balls awarded drop into a chute. There are 11 bonus balls in the chamber, 10 with pay values and one 2X ball that multiplies the total award. After all is said and done, the entire accumulated bonus amount is multiplied by the line bet.

At max-coin, the top possible bonus award is 37,500 credits.
