Ozwin’s Jackpot from Yggdrasil is a slot based on the theme of magic, which features Crystal Collections, Jackpot Free Spins, the Spellbook Bonus and five progressive jackpots. Reassemble the crystal shards to restore the orb of power and break the ancient curse to reap the rewards!
Ozwin’s Jackpot Enchanting Atmosphere
This five reel and twenty fixed paylines slot use darker colours, which adds to the mysterious and more serious tone of the slot. The symbols include the cursed wizard Ozwin, who is doomed to live out his days as an owl, his young apprentice, a compass and blue flask. Those were the higher-value symbols, and the four poker-suit symbols make up the lower-value end. The orchestral-style music, heavy on stringed instruments, helps to reinforce an enchanting atmosphere.
Jackpot Free Spins Feature
The 10 Jackpot Free Spins, with 3x multipliers, are activated any time 3 or more scatter symbols appear on the reels. You also get to collect 1,000 or 10,000 coins if you land 4 or 5 scatter symbols. It is also possible to win the 10 Jackpot Free Spins, with 3x multipliers, by collecting five identically-coloured crystals during either the Spellbook Bonus or the base game. The five crystals form an orb, and by collecting four more orbs of that same colour, you can unlock the progressive jackpot.
This slot game from Yggdrasil is no longer available to South African players.
There are five different-sized jackpots which correspond to a rank: Novice, Apprentice, Mystic, Wizard and Archmage. During play, we found that we could trigger the free spins on several occasions and that the 3x multiplier helped us collect larger prizes. As you would expect, unlocking the progressive jackpots was a much more difficult task.
Spellbook Bonus Game
The Spellbook Bonus Game is randomly triggered with the appearance of 3 or more bonus symbols. Should 4 or 5 of these symbols appear on a spin; then you can collect 1,000 or 10,000 coins respectively.
The feature invites you to select from amongst 18 spellbooks to reveal coin wins and shards which count towards the free spins feature. The feature ends when the page opens up onto an evil spell. We did manage to trigger this feature several times along the way.
Break the ancient curse and win!
Ozwin’s Jackpot slot comes with a return to player (RTP) of 96.7% that is supported on mobile, tablet or pc. If you’re out and about, with wifi access, you can connect using your Android, iOS or Windows Phone device. The variance is probably about a medium so you may need a higher bankroll if you want to play for long enough to unlock a higher prize.
Though, when you think of jackpots, you often think of the ones that make the news such as Mega Moolah or Mega Moolah Isis from Microgaming or Mega Fortune from Netent, this one has reached some pretty impressive sizes in the past.
