Low value symbols are represented by orange flower buds, blue berries and green leaves. If the right number of winning combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.05 and x0.4 the player’s bet.
Meanwhile, orange, blue and green potion bottles depict the medium value symbols, offering between x0.2 and x1 the player’s wager.
High value symbols come in the form of three wizarding students, with background colours of orange, blue and green. These symbols can offer between x0.37 and x5 the chosen stake, depending on the number of paying combinations that fall on one turn.
Additionally, a rare jackpot symbol can drop into play, offering payouts between x1.25 and x25 the player’s bet for payline wins.
Bonus text scatters are available, triggering seven, 12 or 20 free spins if three, four or five land on the same spin.
Special scroll symbols are also included on the fifth reel, being implemented to a counter beside the reel set. These scrolls are then implemented into the free spins feature once it has been triggered by scatters.
Finally, wild text symbols can appear on reels two, three and four, substituting for all symbols other than scrolls and bonus scatters.
Throughout the game, three multiplier meters sit above the reel set, each corresponding to the different colours of each level of symbols, orange, blue and green. While the orange, and blue meters start at x1, the green meter starts at x5.
When low value symbols form payline wins, these meters will slowly fill up. Once they get filled up to the top, their multiplier value will increase by a value of one, before the meter becomes empty again.
Once medium or high value symbols form paylines win, these payouts will be enhanced by the corresponding multiplier meter that matches their specific colour, increasing the payout potential massively.
After enhancing a payline win with its multiplier value, each multiplier meter, including the x5 green, will reset down to x1.
Furthermore, any wins that are formed with the jackpot symbols will be multiplied by the accumulated value of all multiplier meters.
During the free spins feature, the scrolls that are collected throughout the base game will be added to random multiplier meters to increase their starting values.
Each multiplier meter will start with a value of x2 for the free spins game mode, however each meter has the chance to increase by a value of one randomly on each free spin after the first.
