We Check What’s Cooking in Quickspin’s Latest Slot Wild Cauldron!
Casumo Casino has just added Quickspin’s forthcoming new slot release Wild Cauldron to their casino as an exclusive release, the official release date for this slot is actualy the 11th of February 2020 making Casumo your casino of choice if you want to check out this release early!
The Wild Cauldron slot is an unusual mix, featuring a fresh new locking tumble mechanics, locking symbols, expanding reels, rising multipliers and of course a free spins bonus round.
If you are a fan of the grid style slots then Wild Cauldron should definitely appeal, the locking re-spin mechanic is certainly new but displayed very well in the game making it quite obvious when wins have been created.
The game starts as a 6×4 reel slot giving 4096 ways, but successive wins will increase the rows of the slot increasing the winning ways up to a maximum of 262,144 ways and a chance of wins up to 21,000 x your stake!
The main bonus round is triggered by landing 4 or more of the green potion scatter symbols, with a maximum 6 scatters awarding 12 starting free spins, and the ability to re-trigger multiple times with just 2 scatters in the bonus round.
The bonus round is where the real potential of this slot can be found as landing any wild symbols during the free spins will raise the multiplier value by 1x each time. Whilst the pays for this slot aren’t large when you consider the number of winning ways and a multiplier that can easily reach over 10x and grant re-triggers then you start to see how capable this slot can be.

Any wins formed will trigger the Locking Symbol Tumble feature, all the winning combinations are locked with all non-winning symbols removed from the reels with new symbols tumbling in.
Each win will increase the number of ways also up to the maximum of 262,144.
The free spins are triggered by landing 4 or more Scatter symbols in the base game, the maximum 6 scatter trigger awards 12 free spins.
During the free spins, however, 2 Scatter symbols award 2 more Free Spins. The expanded ways and win multiplier are active for the duration of the bonus round.

Wild Cauldron Slot
The Wild Cauldron Slot from Quickspin is an interesting release, the mechanics are new and while it does take a while to understand how the Locking Symbol Tumbles work but thankfully this doesn’t take long to recognise. Whilst the pays are quite low this is offset quite well thanks to the rising multipliers that are found during the bonus feature and base game along with quite regular bonus re-triggers too.
Our playtests of the bonus round resulted in wins from 20x stake up to 100x stake with our best bonus round being well over 500x stake thanks to a 6 scatter trigger and several 2 scatter re-triggers.
Wild Cauldron should definitely appeal to players who enjoy the grid style slots, the gameplay is similar here and the expanding ways and rising multipliers give this slot some decent potential too!
