Are you superstitious? Do you have your fingers crossed all the time (not recommended while typing) and look at your horoscope every day of the week? Well if you do, then this slot from Novomatic is going to be right up your street. Perhaps you knew that already, it’s amazing what the tea leaves can tell you. Well no need to be crossing your fingers (besides it’s harder to spin the reels that way) or avoid walking under some ladders, simply start playing this game and wait for the winning combinations to start flowing.
13 means so many things to so many people. For many it might just be their lucky number, for others it’s the exact opposite. Take Australia for example, why is 87 so unlucky for them? Simple, it’s 13 less than a hundred, though no idea why they don’t complain about 113. Anyway, this game is full of voodoo and magic and if you don’t like cats then you’re in big trouble.
Novomatic probably missed a trick when they decided this five-reel game would have 10 pay-lines, why not give us 13? The ten that we do have are a fixed amount so will be in play for every spin of the reels. At least that means you don’t have the constant job of having to work out how many of the pay-lines to activate on each spin. You do have to decide what your stake will be and ensure that it’s one that you can afford to lose. The minimum cost of playing with all the pay-lines activated is 0.40 and the maximum 10000.
The symbols in this game pay out in amounts ranging from 10x your bet to 10,000x. We get to see a crystal ball, tarot cards, a voodoo doll, a door that has the number 13 on it, a supposedly magic mirror and then they run out of ideas and give us the nine to Ace playing card symbols.
The wild symbol here is the young witch and she can certainly work her magic to your advantage. This symbol can substitute for others in the game to help get you some winning combinations you might not otherwise have had. The scatter bonus symbol is a black cat and we all know how lucky they can be. It won’t hurt your account balance seeing this symbol because just by appearing it wins you a prize.
It’s an easy game to operate with the key control buttons situated underneath the reels, they make it easy to set your stake, spin those reels and start an autoplay feature. Take a look through the paytable to find out more information about this game. That has lots of information about ‘13’ including the various winning combinations available. There are also details about the bonus games that this slot has to offer. Have some free games before pumping some real cash in. That will allow you to see how all the features work and fully prepare you for playing ’13.’
To trigger the free spins bonus round, you need three or more of those black cat scatter symbols to appear anywhere on the reels. Once that has been achieved, you rather unsurprisingly win a total of 13 free spins. But will they bring you good or bad luck? They don’t cost you anything so it’s going well so far. The bet you were using for that triggering spin is used during the 13 free spins. There’s no multiplier on any winning combinations but you can re-trigger the free spins if those scatters appear in triplicate again.
This is another of the Novomatic games that includes a gamble feature. This crops up after you get a winning combination and it’s not compulsory to play it. If you do, then your task is to guess whether the next playing card is going to be red or black. A correct choice doubles your win but get it wrong and you lose that win you’ve just had. It’s best to be careful with this and never gamble big wins.
If the gameplay in this slot appeals to you, then try these similar games. Try another Novomatic game, ‘Hoffmeister’ which also has ten pay-lines, almost the same RTP and a free spins round but with 11 rather than 13 free spins. Also, try the Novomatic slot game ‘Flamenco Roses’ which features sticky wilds and a free spins round on its ten pay-lines.
A good theme and one that is well adhered to. The free spins round can be fairly lucrative if you can keep retriggering the 13 that are given to you. It’s an attractive looking game and the soundtrack is totally acceptable. Be careful with that gamble feature though as it can cost you some good wins. It’s definitely worth giving a go.
