Voodoo Reels slot review
We are certainly impressed by the uncanny atmosphere and the audiovisual presentation StakeLogic has cooked together here. Voodoo Reels is packed with spooky characters, creepy dolls and magic symbolism, and it also comes with a well-balanced set of features. With the Super Stake turned on (2x your stake), you will benefit from the Voodoo Dolls Pick’em game on a regular basis.
The big attraction here however, is the Unlimited Free Spins feature, and it follows in the wake of the regular bonus round. This gives you an indefinite number of extra spins, as the feature only ends when you’ve collected enough voodoo dolls. This is not something you see too often, and it was certainly enough to make us curious. How we fared in our 200 spins test session can be seen in the highlights video further down in the review.

Voodoo Reels Features
The voodoo doll wild steps in for all regular symbols, per usual, but it also pays up to 500x your stake for 5 on a payline. You can decide to switch on the Super Stake feature if you wish, but it will cost you twice as much per spin. The upside is that you will trigger the Pick & Click Bonus Game at random times on losing spins.
You can land Yarn ball symbols on any given spin, and these are collected in a meter up on the left-hand side. When you have collected 6 yarn balls, you trigger the Voodoo Bonus Game. You will then get to place a pin in 1 of 3 voodoo dolls, and this will give you 1 of 3 bonus features:
- Wild Mixer Respins - gives you 3 respins where 2 to 6 wilds are randomly added to the reels per spin.
- Sticky Voodoo Respins - also gives you 3 respins, and you will benefit from random sticky symbols per spin. For each sticky symbol that lands, the remaining reel positions respin until you don’t land any new sticky symbols or wilds. Your winnings are then summed up, before a new random symbol is chosen to be sticky for the next spin.
- Free Spins - gives you 6 free spins with 3x3 colossal symbols and the Unlimited free spins feature following right after.
You can trigger the bonus round in the traditional way also. You will be rewarded with 6, 8 or 10 free spins when you land 3, 4 or 5 voodoo doll scatters, respectively. Before the bonus round plays out however, you will first get a scatter win of either 0.2x, 2x or 20x your stake, depending on how many scatters you triggered the feature with.
When the regular free spins have played out, you move on to the Unlimited Free Spins feature automatically. You will now benefit from 3x3 colossal symbols that fill up reels 2 to 4, and the Unlimited feature goes on until 3 voodoo doll symbols have been collected. The voodoo doll symbols can only land on reels 1 and 5, and the good news is that each collected voodoo doll is replaced by a wild.
Finally, you can choose to gamble all winnings in a classic double or nothing card game feature. Picking the correct card color gives you a 2x boost, while picking the correct suit gives you a 4x win. You can gamble each win up to several times.
The 200 Spins Voodoo Reels Experience
We certainly had a good time testing this game, and 200 spins gives you a pretty good impression of what a game is about. We have put together a neat little highlights video you can check out below. We always edit out most of the base game grind, and try to keep the focus only on the fun stuff.
StakeLogic has made a very atmospheric game with Voodoo Reels, and the audiovisual experience is pretty awesome. There are 2 ways to get to the Unlimited Free Spins feature, which is the big attraction here. The Super Stake gives you more of the Pick & Click game, which helps break up the base game grind.
It might be worthwhile since it can trigger the Unlimited free spins, and the 2 wild features will usually also lead to decent payouts. The math model is pretty solid too, as you can win up to 5,000x your stake. Being a medium volatile game, you cannot really complain about that potential. Overall, you’ll get your moments of voodoo thrills here for sure, but Voodoo Reels is not in the same league as ELK’s Voodoo Gold.
- Super Stake for more frequent Pick & Click Bonus Game
- 2 different wild features from the bonus game
- Unlimited Free Spins after the regular free spins are done
- Medium volatility and 5,000x max win potential
- Customizable RTP ranges (96.49 % version and 94.49 % version)
If you appreciate Voodoo Reels you should also try:
Voodoo Gold - is one of the best games in ELK’s series about the mysterious Kane. You will benefit from an expanding reel set and win ways up to 262,144, as well as mega symbols that can create wilds below. The reel set does not reset in the bonus round, where you can win up to 5,000x your stake.
Voodoo - is another atmospheric voodoo slot, and this one is from the competent guys over at Endorphina. All winning symbols will expand to cover the full reels during the bonus round, and you can win up to 1,000x your stake per spin here.
Voodoo Magic - is powered by Pragmatic Play, and it comes with 5 reels and 40 win ways. You can look forward to symbols removal and extra wilds, and the bonus round comes in 3 different versions. Each version includes mystery symbols however, and a solid 50x win guarantee.
