Award-winning slots studio AvatarUX is gearing up for the spookiest time of year in its latest launch, Witchy Poppins.
The title sees the return of the hugely popular, award-winning PopWins mechanic. The 5×3, pays both way slot sees a coven of witches fill the reels, with all successful combinations removed from the reels, and ‘popped’ to increase the reel height by one. This is repeated until no more wins are possible, with the matrix able to grow up to six reels high.
On any spin, a Nudge can occur, which will bump the reel either up or down one spot, to boost win potential or even trigger the Free Spins mode.
Three or more Bonus pumpkins are required to launch the Free Spins, where both additive and multiplicative multipliers can land, swiftly boosting the total multiplier up to huge amounts as players chase the max win of 20,000x.
Before the Free Spins start, a random symbol is selected to be a ‘pay anywhere’ icon. For the duration of the bonus if three or more of this land anywhere on screen, then it will count as a win, regardless of if they are present on adjacent reels or not.
Witchy Poppins features four Buy Bonus options in certain jurisdictions, with higher levels ensuring more spins and a higher starting amount of payways active.
It’s the latest product in AvatarUX’s growing offering, following the boxing-themed Donkey & the GOATS.
The game is initially available exclusively to AvatarUX’s partners with direct integrations and will be rolled out globally later.
Nicola Longmuir, CEO at AvatarUX, said: “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 rollout a new type of game, jam-packed with features and win potential, that showcases the innovation and diversity that AvatarUX can offer.”
