Wisps – What You Need to Know

An Overview of the Rules and Features
The theme of the game (taken from will O’ the wisps) is surprisingly current for a medieval legend. In addition to being integral to the plot in Brave, they are even mentioned in The Sound of Music’s ‘How Do You Solve a Problem like Maria?’ (we admit ‘current’ may be a generous term here). Said to lead people to treasure or doom, these fickle creatures in different forms make up some of our payout symbols, the highest earning you a massive 10,000 coins for five. Our other symbols are the classic playing cards Ace to Nine. Featuring five reels and three rows, iSoftBet have also programmed in 243 ways to win! Scatter symbols trigger 15 free spins and multipliers of up to 25x. At the beginning of the free spins you will face a choice between bouncing or spiral wilds; we found spiral more lucrative (and more fun to look at). Bouncing wilds will turn up to five random symbols on the reels wild for that spin and spiral wilds will turn up to three whole reels wild for that spin. Three randomly triggered modes of play will keep you on your toes, including Left to Right, Both Ways and Left to Right Transformer mode where a transformer symbol can appear in the middle reel to transform all six lower paying symbols into the same symbol.

Conclusion – Modern Medieval
This slot has a very cool and refreshing theme, taking on medieval folklore in a slot game proves iSoftBet is casting the net far and wide for fresh material and we appreciate the effort. Legend has it that Wisps are known for luring walkers off safe paths and into a bog where they might drown, so you might struggle to associate this game with winning, but we strongly suggest you persevere. We think they look a little like jellyfish although, as all we have to go on is a Disney film and the knowledge that they are actually caused by methane spontaneously combusting over swamps, we are in no position to complain. While we enjoyed the design of this slot, other reviewers can be forgiven for assuming it is about space due to the background and symbols all seeming to convey this theme. Overall, the game may be a little confused in its identity, but we embrace it as one of our favourites from the developers; a little bit of lines paying both ways gets us very excited.
