Caught in the Widow’s Web

Caught in The Widow’s Web is an online slot game with a unique mystery crime theme. Developed by High 5 Games, this five-reel, three-line slot game has sixty paylines and revolves around the poisonous allure of a seductive widow — whose dark beauty draws in hapless suitors. While her attraction can become fatal for some players, the game’s many features, including scatter captures, wilds and free spins, mean there are many chances to take home the big money prizes.

How to Play

Caught In the Widow’s Web online slots are playable on both desktop and mobile devices with BetVictor, but you’ll need to create an account if you want to try your luck against this femme fatale.

Game Rules

If players are brave enough to face the widow, they’ll find plenty of interesting game features.


The game’s wild is the red and gold web symbol. When it drops onto any of the five playreels, the wild replaces all standard symbols and helps to form winning combinations.

Scatter Capture

This is the game’s biggest draw. The scatter capture positions are in the centre of reels one and five, and in the spirit of the game’s theme, are signified by golden webs which wrap around the boxes.

If two matching high paying symbols (the web, widow, green, blue and purple gentleman) land in the scatter capture positions, then all visible symbols of the same type on the payreels award a scatter payout.

Additionally, the wild symbol, which is a red and gold web, substitutes for any of the four high paying symbols and activates the lucrative scatter capture feature.

Free Spins 

Free spins are awarded if three cash boxes land on reels two, three or four. This rewards seven, nine or 11 free spins, respectively. Players can’t generate more free spins during the bonus round, although the lucrative scatter capture, as explained above, is still in play.
