The Alchemist`s Spell is a really nice looking video slot game from Playtech. This slot is played on 5 reels and it offers 243 ways to win. I played this game only once and even my session was quite long I could not trigger any feature. During the base game I had some good wins and for that reason I played this game for so long, otherwise I usually quit after around 300 spins.

The game takes action in a gloomy lab where you can see dusty books and jars on the shelves. The game has only one feature and that is the free spins round. The red crystal is the scatter symbol in this game and if you land 3, 4 or 5 on the reels you will get 10, 15 or 20 free spins. This feature is a bit different than the free spins in some other games, and for that reason I played the game longer to see its potential. There are 3 wilds in this slot, and they are the gold, the silver and the bronze bars. So during the free spins if these symbols contribute a winning combination they will add a multiplier to the win. The gold wilds appear only on the fourth reel and multiply the win x 5, the silver wilds appear on the third reel only and multiply the win with x 3 and the bronze wild appears on the second reel and multiplies the win with x 2. In case there are more wilds in the winning combination than those wilds will be multiplied. I really wanted to see this but better luck to me next time. The maximum multiplier can be x 30.
When I played The Alchemist`s Spell I found that it is really difficult to activate the free spins, and I do not know if this is a fact, or it was just my luck but I did not find anything in this game that will make me come back for more.

The Alchemist's Spell is one of the two Playtech video slot games that come with 243 pay-lines. The theme in this game is alchemy and I would say the game has a solid graphics, but nothing extra.

From features here you have wild symbol feature and free spins feature. Interestingly enough, they have three different wild symbols that change all other symbols including the scatter symbol. Bronze wild symbol appears on the second reel and in the free spins bonus comes with a 2 x multiplier. Silver wild symbol appears only on the third reel and in the free spins come with a 3x multiplier. At the end on the fourth reel also appears Golden Wild symbol that will come in free spins with a 5x multiplier when replaces some of the other symbols. Otherwise, different combinations of these wild symbols on a pay-line will pay more than one wild. For example, combination of all three these symbols on a pay-line gives even 30x multiplier. Otherwise for 3 scatter symbols you get 10 free spins. Free spins can be retriggered and it often happens.

I can say that from the experience that I have gained by playing this game in the last month. So, recently I often had the opportunity to play The Alchemist's Spell at 3 Playtech casinos where I only here play lately, when it comes to Playtech casinos. Sometimes wins from the free spins can be disappointingly small. Let's say, I just at maybe on the 10th or 11th free spins bonus that I got here had wins greater than 20 x bet. But, my biggest wins in this game was more than 300 x bet. Otherwise, I played with a minimum bet of 0.3 euros per spin. Similar to the games with 243 pay-lines of other software providers, here too the number of pay-lines is fixed and can’t be changed.

For The Alchemist's Spell I give 8 out of 10 possible stars.

I don’t know how other gamblers think about it but personally with a name like this I would expect some mystic atmosphere at this game which I definitely don’t get. I’m not saying the graphics wouldn’t be OK because it is though we can’t see any pictorial elements which would really excels or the symbols (books, potions, alchemist, crystal, bullions) wouldn’t be drawn by solid technique but they’re not too interesting and we can’t play here with any real unique or captivating emblems and I always feel that something would miss at this game something that would make me really interested in this appearance or really catch my attention. For me, it’s very obvious this kind of illustration hasn’t got the ability to be real enjoyable or create an unexampled atmosphere and it seems just another average, everyday interface.

From the appearance I would have never thought that this is a 243-ways-to-win type slot which fact in itself raises the expectation but unfortunately in my opinion this product simple can’t live up to them and even I dare to say this slot is not a good overall products. We can’t consider it a feature rich slot as we can get only free spins as secondary games and even if that session is not bad and hides some potential in itself mainly because of the used Wilds and their qualities but somehow the base game doesn’t looks like a 243 game at all.

Unfortunately, the normal game mode is very average in best case and doesn’t pay too well but it’s no wonder as we get used to at this kind of games that the symbols paying can’t be similar as 20 or 25 payline slots but we’re always compensated in other ways by features or others special game rules but at The Alchemist’s Spell we can’t find any of them. The Wilds only replace other icons in winning combination but they don’t multiply wins nor have the power to pay by own and they only can appear on the three inner reels on the other hand at least we have 3 Wilds at this slot (Gold, Silver and Bronze Wild) which can substitute even for the Scatter. The Scatter is really there just for activating free spins and even though it has paying ability but it can reward us with just 50 times of bet amount.

I think this is not the features and qualities what we want to see at a multi-level game like this and I don’t really like all of these kinds of restrictions. Definitely the Wilds should have more power to reward us or the game should pay using the ‘both way’ method or something like this because with these very simple and rudimentary paying ability the base game simple can’t work and that’s why it can’t be considered a good game.

The only acceptable part of the game is the Free Spin feature where the Wilds finally get some win multiplier numbers. After collecting 3 or more Crystal pictogram during base game 10, 15 or 20 extra spins are awarded when Bronze Bullion can double the wins, Silver triples them while a win with Gold Wild on the line multiplies it by x5. The great things come along if not just one Wild is a member of the same winning combination because two or more different kind of Wilds bring their own multiplying ability and it is possible to have a winning combination that is multiplied by x30. This feature would be really a great and excitement extra if it is triggered more frequently because I could play about 25 mins last time when I visited this slot without getting any entry there and also noticed that contrary to other games where the winning combinations are more frequently coming during free games, I’ve never experienced such thing here and sometimes exactly the opposite trend was recognizable and it seemed that they didn’t want to show themselves at all.

Personally, this game turned for me into a massive disappointment and I safely can say I expected much more from this game and it is applied for every game segment. If a slot game hasn’t got an impressive or attractive interface is just one thing because it’s a subjective judgment and otherwise the game could be a real good product if it has a good working game section but if I also don’t like what I see there, well, that’s a big problem for me. This is the situation at this slot where I can’t find too much things that I would like (except the free spins) because the appearance of the game is barely reach that level what I consider ‘playable’ but the game functions and rules are not good but my real problem with the game is its paying ability at normal mode. I think it’s almost horrible and useless which really ruins the entire playing experience. The slot sadly also doesn’t possess that ability to entertain me or make me feel that I’m in a great environment so my final verdict of this game: It’s a bad game and maybe the creators should remove it from its repertoire.
Out of all of the new games that i have played on Bet365, this one is definitely the worst. It looks awesome and the sound effects are cool, but the game play is very bad, well for me anyways.

This is a 243 line game and the minimum bet is €0.30, I have tried it on different bets and nothing works. Just to make it clear, this is not coming from playing this game once, but rather from my many attempts. For instance on one of my recent visits to Bet365, I deposited €50 and started playing. As usual I would go trough my favorite games first, then look for something else to play. Fortunately I was lucky to double my cash with my favorite games, so I withdrew 50 and started playing this game with the remaining cash. I started on the small bets, seeing that nothing happens I raised it to see if it might help. I kept on playing, my money kept on going down and no big wins or feature was coming out. After some time it was too late for me to quit, and I did not want to win big anymore, I just wanted to win my money back. I had around €15 left so I raised the bet to €0.90. That €15 finished within 2 minutes ( or even less) and I was really upset. Every time I play this game it ends bad, I still have not seen the feature in this game and I wasted over €100 on it. I think that this game has some personal issues with me, and is never going to return my money.

Over all the game looks good, but looks can be deceiving. I would not recommend this game to anyone, and if I was to rate it i would give it 4 out of 10. The 4 points that I am giving it is just for the graphics and sound effects, and little bit theme.

Hope you enjoyed my review and have a nice day:)
