The Potion Commotion slot is full of little details that make playing it far more exciting than we thought, especially with those frequent free spins making all that commotion.
When we first started to play Potion Commotion mobile slot we were prepared to be unimpressed. Imagine our surprise when what we thought would be a lazy theme (different coloured bottles spinning down into place) ended up, in our opinion, being genuinely fitting for mobile screens.
Sure on tablets it still doesn’t quite fit, but which of the NextGen slots games does? The bright, sharp, simple graphics pop from your smartphone and HD tablets. And sure the sounds are nothing original, but it still has a little something extra to give from time to time, that makes you think Potion Commotion is more than just a pretty face.
For example, the way that when you get two scatters on screen, the lights suddenly dim, the drums roll and the reel where you could get the third scatter sparkles with magic at the anticipation of the free spins… oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!
And for once, we are happy to say that this is no empty thrill, when those sparkles come, you have an incredibly good chance to hit free spins. The first time we hit them, we were fairly unimpressed – ok 20x our bet. Yeah ok. Sure. But wait… more free spins! Ok, nice 25x our bet, nice, now to keep spinning… what more free spins??? And we’ve retriggered them? 30 free spins? 3x time multiplier… retriggered… 40 free spins…. and there we were staring at 100x our bet.
What just happened?
What just happened was that NextGen Gaming have decided that Potion Commotion is a mobile slot with one aim in mind, keep pushing those free spins front and centre. We couldn’t go for less than 50 spins without hitting them. As for re-triggering them, we did it three or four times in our half hour game play.
We are not saying this mobile slot will make you rich. This is low risk and low volatility all the way, and the wins come fast and sharp, but not very huge. Yet the jackpot amount is hopeful enough to make you think you could win big, whilst playing a slot that takes the concept of free rounds to a whole new level. It certainly created quite a commotion in our heads of what we thought we liked in a slot.

Wilds: The Wild Potion is the, euh, wild symbol. It replaces all symbols except scatter and gives you the jackpot amount of 5000x your bet per line.
Scatter and Free Spins: Oh free spins... oh we love thee.... let us count the ways... No, really, let us count how many free spins we got during our gaming session. Or let's not, we would certainly quickly lose count.
The Scatter is the Potion Commotion logo and pays when they show up anywhere on the reels and multiplies your total bet. Get 3, 4 or 5 scatters and get 10, 15 or 20 free spins. These are far easier to re-trigger than you would think, and we've hit 30 free spins more than a couple of times.
All wins are tripled, giving you, on average about 20x to 30x your bet, but every once in a while you'll hit a doozy of win and you'll have to double check this is really a NextGen low volatility slot.
Potion Commotion mobile slot by NextGen is made for those who love their free spins fast and frequent. It has no other features, no dancing elephants or jazz bands to keep you entertained. Just the absolute certainly that those free spins are just coming around the corner any time now to give your bank roll a nice little top up.
This is the kind of mobile video slot we would give to newcomers who want to know why slots are so great. It's low risk, good payouts, lots of free rounds to give you value for money and simple gameplay.
But even us seasoned players left this slot with a huge grin on our face, and it wasn't only because we were up. This is a genuinely good fun video slot that doesn't require a big dance number to impress, just some frequent wins.
Our first five star NextGen Slot. How about that.
