After the original Bubble Bubble online pokie became a big hit, RTG have released an even more entertaining sequel – Bubble Bubble 2. Winni the Witch is still involved. She is now joined by her sister, Wanda the Witch. Both are glamourous cartoon witches, which frequently get involved in the game play. New Halloween style symbols appear on the reels, though the design is similar to the first.
As well as a new witch, you get new bonus features. With 2 wild reels possible in the base game, plus three different free spins bonus variations, there is plenty to keep you entertained. Here are the pokie highlights:
In the original game, Winni the Witch appeared on reel 3. In this new version she has moved to reel 1. Her sister, Wanda the Witch, also appears – this time on reel 5.
Both witches start as single symbols. Whichever position they land in, they expand to cover the entire reel. You will see an animation involving a heart shaped smoke ring, and a 3x multiplier will apply to any wins created. The animations will kick in even if no wins are possible.
Wands are the scatter / bonus symbols for Bubble Bubble 2. You need 3+ anywhere in view to win a scatter prize and trigger the bonuses. Which bonus you get will depend on a picks game. You will be asked to select one of the wands to reveal one of the variations of free spins bonuses.
Here are the three games:
All these bonus games can be retriggered, and they come with a 10x your bet win-win guarantee.
Bubble Bubble 2 Pokies Base Game and Winning Symbols
50 win-lines mean that you have plenty of shots at taking advantage of the expanding wilds. There are some quirky options to go with your selection of win-lines and bet size. These include 3 speeds (a candle lights for each) plus auto-play.
You can’t win with the witches alone – though they do triple any wins (including scatter wins) when they are involved. The biggest prizes come from a black cat and bat, worth 1000 coins for 5 of a kind. Other winning symbols include an owl, witches’ hat, cheeky looking rat and the obligatory cauldron.
Overall the designs of both pokies in this series are similar, though number 2 has more detail, and more character overall. Behind the reels you’ll see a full moon, and the top of a witches’ house. The reels are dark, bringing the quirky animal symbols to life.
Both WInni and Wanda the witch are a little too glamourous to be evil. They look like cartoon versions of Halloween costumes. There are some entertaining animations, including those expanding reels and the ghost in the Greater Ghosts feature.
Edgy music plays while you spin to complete the mock-spooky effect.
Both Bubble Bubble pokies from RTG are well worth a spin. There are a lot of similarities. These include the designs and the bonus features. Bubble Bubble 2 goes further than the original, by adding another wild witch to the reels. When they combine forces in the Ultra Bewitched feature, you have the potential for a lot of wins from a single spin. These each get a 3x multiplier, enough to cast a spell on anyone’s bankroll.
