Fans of the IP will also find familiar icons such as the Golden Snitch and the Quaffle - they'll have to look out for Bludger hazards as well. If they're lucky, they might even encounter the new Felix Felicis Potion to double the value of certain gems. The Golden Snitch mini-game, on the other hand, rewards players with points when they tap the Snitch as much as they can.
