Voodoo Online Pokie Game Review
Voodoo is an online pokie machine from Endorphina that we can’t get enough of. Endorphina makes pokie machines that always meet two conditions: they are beautifully designed and they have a high variance. This casino games maker focuses on the more serious gambler who loves excitement and is not afraid to take some risk. The Voodoo pokie machine has 10 paylines and an exciting free spins bonus with expanding symbols. Let yourself be enchanted by the dark powers of Voodoo and with a bit of luck you’ll get a big payout.
Game Explanation Vodoo
The Voodoo theme is really beautifully worked out. Green and dark colours are used and the symbols look really fantastic. We meet a dead Voodoo priest, cobwebs, Voodoo dolls and crows and snakes.
A wonderfully dark atmosphere is created, which is enhanced by scary music and sound effects, which could have come out of a horror movie in no time at all.
Determine your own number of winning lines
You play between 1 and 10 lines. We always play with the maximum number of winning lines, but that is of course a personal choice. The betting range at Voodoo is between $0.01 per turn and $100 per turn.
Symbols and Payments
This is a high variance pokie machine. Therefore, you do not often have a winning combination of the same 5 on an active payline. But if it falls, then it’s also a good price. For example, 5 of the ladies on an active payline pay out a huge amount of money: 10,000 x your bet per line. Even 5 snakes still account for 5,000 times your bet per line. The priest in the top hat looks rather scary, but is your biggest friend in this game. He functions as a scatter symbol as well as a wild symbol.
Unique in Endorphina: Doubling without Risk
Pokie machines from Endorphina have a unique doubling option. After each winning combination you can activate the gambling function. You get to see 1 open card and 4 closed cards. If you decide to gamble, you choose one of the four open cards. This is turned over and if it is higher than your card, your winnings are doubled. If the two cards are equal in value, it is a tie and a new card is drawn. Now you might think: so what? This feature has so many pokies, right? Wrong. Because at Endorphina, you always get to see your card before you decide if you want to take the gamble. If you are not satisfied with your card, you can always go back to the game, without consequences.
Tip: after each winning combination, check what the starting card is. In other words: Is there a 2 as a starting card? Then you have a free chance to double. Is there another card? Then you can just go back to the game, if you don’t like your chance. Also in case of a tie (suppose you start with a 2 and the closed card you choose is also a 2), you can always return to the game. Watch out! Never use the gambling function if you are still playing with bonus money – this can violate the bonus conditions and lose all winnings.
Voodoo’s Free Spins Bonus & Expanding Scatter Symbols
If 3 or more scatters (the Voodoo priest) appear on the screen, you have won the free spins bonus. You always start this bonus with 10 free spins. However, these are not normal free spins. If you make a winning scatter combination, the symbols expand and extend over the entire roll. The scatters have to fall from left to right on consecutive reels. It often happens that you rotate a full screen with symbols. For example, a screen full of ladies with all 10 winning lines active results in a payout of 10 winning lines x 10,000 = 100,000 x your bet per line. Wow. It is possible to retrieve the free spins. 3 or more scatters during the free spins bonus will result in another 10 extra free spins.
Once in a while you come across a pokie machine with which you just fall in love. The design of Voodoo is absolutely gorgeous and is just perfect. The colour scheme, the symbols, the dark atmosphere and the great potential in the bonus rounds – this pokie machine is right down to the last detail. The risk-free doubling function can also be very lucrative: We have already doubled a nice amount of money won several times without any risk because a 2 has been played as a starting card. The pokie machines of Endorphina are not yet very well known to the general public and as far as we’re concerned that’s completely unjustified.
