Voodoo Magic Introduction 

Also known as vodoun or vodou, among many different spellings, voodoo is an Afro-Caribbean religion that originated in Haiti, before being spread across a number of other countries. These include Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Brazil and the United States, most famously in the state of Louisiana. Often sensationalised by popular culture, voodoo combines a whole range of cultural elements, including an elaborate system of folk medical practices and a system of ethics told across generations consisting of proverbs, stories, songs and folklore. Followers of voodoo believe in many spirits known as loa, who govern specific domains in life, as well as a universal energy and a soul that cam leave the body during dreams and spirit possession. 

Pragmatic Play takes a perhaps more stylised view of this tradition as it brings Voodoo Magic, a 5-reel, 4-row slot set in the mysterious hut of a voodoo priestess. The tone employed here is both creepy and comical, as the reels are inhabited by grinning skulls, alligators and glowing potion bottles. These potions are probably the most important symbol on the reels, as these are the scatters. Land 3 for a round of free spins, and 2 for a random feature. Which one will you get? And, more importantly, what do they even entail? Well, read on to find out, of course!

Voodoo Magic Game Features 

Voodoo Magic is a slot with 5 reels, 4 rows and a total of 40 paylines formed by landing 3 or more matching symbols on adjacent reels. Paylines always start from reel 1, moving from left to right. There are 10 paying symbols on the reels, with 4 high and 6 low pays. The high-paying symbols consist of the priestess, alligator, zombie skull and ram's skull, while the traditional A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 card royals make the low-paying symbols. The demonic wild can substitute for all symbols in a payline except the potion bottle scatter. Found on reels 2, 3 and 4, the scatter triggers the free spins if you land all 3.

Voodoo Magic Free Spins and Bonuses 

Landing the 3 scatters on the reels brings about the free spins, but before these start you first get to choose one of 3 cards. This will randomly earn you one of the 3 different free spins rounds listed below: 

  • Mega Voodoo Free Spins: 5 free spins with Mystery symbols added to the reels. These randomly transform into either one of the high pays or wilds. This round promises a minimum payout reaching 50x the bet, and if you do not manage to reach this payout total by its end you will get 5 more free spins until you either reach or exceed it. 
  • Super Voodoo Free Spins: 5 free spins with mystery symbols on the reels. The mystery symbols will transform into either any of the paying symbols or a wild. The minimum guaranteed win for this round is 25x the stake, and if you do not reach it by the end you get 5 more free spins until you do. 
  • Vodoo Free Spins: 5 free spins with mystery symbols able to transform into either any of the paying symbols or a wild. The minimum payout guaranteed for this round is 10x the stake, and in the case you do not reach it you get 5 more free spins. 

The free spins take place on special reels and can only be retriggered by the minimum guaranteed payout. Pragmatic Play adds the maximum payout during the free spins can reach up to 1,000x the bet, and in the case it is reached the round ends immediately and all remaining free spins are forfeited. 

In addition, land the scatters on reels 2 and 3 (without one on reel 4) to get a choice between 2 potion bottles. Selecting one triggers one of two random features. One is Mystery Curses, where after the spin ends a random number of symbols on the reels is turned into wilds. After the transformation all winning combinations are paid. The other feature is Fortune Hex. This removes all low-paying card royals and bonus symbols from the reels, leaving only the high pays. The removed symbols also trigger a cascade, with new symbols tumbling in their place, and this process continues until the reels are only carrying high pays. 

Voodoo Magic Payouts 

The priestess is the most valuable of the regular symbols on the reels, with a full payout being worth 10x the stake. The alligator follows at up to 5x, while the two skulls are worth up to 3.75x the bet. Moving on to the low pays, the A and K can earn you up to 2.5x the bet, the Q and J 2x and the 10 and 9 1x. The biggest payout actually comes from the wilds, as 5 on the reels will earn you 12.5x the bet.

Voodoo Magic Graphics and Sound 

Voodoo Magic presents a scene that is equal part comical and grotesque, with its dark hut setting lit only by the light piercing through the window on the left-hand side and the sinister glowing cauldron on the right! By this you will spot the animated voodoo priestess carefully tending whatever ritual this involves! Other little details abound, such as the swinging voodoo doll and the serpent lurking in a jar in the foreground! The reels themselves are crafted out of wood, and hold big, detailed symbols, with the high pays being the best looking of the lot. 

Voodoo Magic Conclusion 

Pragmatic Play expertly combines the sinister and entertaining in Voodoo Magic, bringing about a fun slot that is well worth playing. The main draw here, aside from the visuals and sound, is the selection of free spins rounds on offer. Will you manage to get the Mega Voodoo Free Spins? You need to spin the reels to find out, of course, so do so here at Videoslots Casino today!
