Ozwin's Jackpot Slot Review

Man – I wish there had been a Hogwarts Academy in real life when I was growing up. Being bullied? Turn him into a snail! Got Acne? Abracadabra it's gone!
Ozwin's Jackpots is a fantastical Progressive Jackpot video slot that transports players to a Harry Potter style world of wizards. So, To all you guys named Ozwin out there – this game is for the 9 of you worldwide!
I suppose with a software developer named Yggdrasil we should be grateful they went for a vaguely normal sounding name for this slot – it could have been “Bytwrs's Jackpot”.

Right from the start, Ozwin's Jackpot immerses players in a world of magic and mystery. The last time I felt like this was when reading J.K Rowling's novels. (On the subject of J.K Rowling – isn't that an incredible lady? How is there not a movie made about her life and more importantly – is she single? J.K – if you're reading this review, feel free to get in touch with me – you're beautiful, funny intelligent and a billionaire – the four qualities I look for in a woman).

Gameplay

Ozwin's jackpots is a medium volatility slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines. The standard symbols are the apprentice, owl, compass (or something like it), bottle and card suits shown as jewels.

There's a slew of special symbols which I'll chat about later in detail:

  • Free Spin Orb

  • Jackpot Orbs

  • Free Spin Crystals

  • X3 multiplier sign

  • Spellbook.

I loved the design of the control panel – etched in a combination of rock and emerald. Up top are your Progressive Jackpot displays while below is a plus expander that reveals Info, Game Settings and Rules.
Further down are Lines, Coin Value, Cash Bet, Max Bet, Spin, Autoplay, Win and Balance.
A superb feature in your game settings is that the spin speed is variable and can be set precisely to how fast or slow you enjoy it best.

Features

  • 3 Free Spin Orbs = 10 Free Spins.

  • 4 Free Spin Orbs = 10 Free Spins + 1000 coins.

  • 5 Free Spin orbs = 10 Free Spins + 10 000 coins.

There's another way to get Free Spins and that's by “collecting” Free Spins crystals in the base game. Once you've accumulated 5 of them in the base game, you get 10 Free Spins and one Jackpot Orb.
During all Free Spins, every payline win is multiplied by 3!
Also during Free Spins, is you are lucky enough to collect 5 Identical Jackpot Orbs, you win the corresponding Progressive Jackpot displayed! (Actually you only need to collect a further 4, because they then change to be the same as your free Orb!)

Unique Features

Land 3 Spellbook symbols in regular play to trigger the Bonus game (landing 4 will additionally win you a 1000 coins while 5 garners you 10 000).
During the Bonus Game, 18 Spellbooks are shown on screen, each hiding either a differing win amount or crystal. But beware! A few also contain an evil spell that will bring this feature to an end.

Gameplay

The graphics are crisp, vibrant and thematically perfect. Aesthetically this game is just gorgeous. The music is a rousing classical score while the sound effects keep the thrills going.
Performance wise, despite the complexity of features, this game shone through with zero issues.

Conclusion

Oswin's Jackpots is a visually stunning game jam-packed with innovative features and a tremendous chance at winning one of 5 Progressive Jackpots.
Whether you're a fan of the genre or not, you will find this slot to be sheer magic!
