The Alchemist Spell


A game that will offer you 243 ways to win instead of paylines, The Alchemist’s Spell offers its symbols on a total of 5 reels. The game is basic and focused on alchemy and those that use it. The retro design places the entire action inside of a lab of some kind, though it’s only visible at the top and only a small portion of it. The game’s focus on alchemy might prove fun for plenty of people, but the way they’ve designed it doesn’t make it a huge success. The features of the slot include a wild, a scatter symbol, free spins and a multiplier.


Graphics & Theme

The theme of the slot has to do with alchemy, the process through which alchemists tried to obtain gold and other precious metals, by starting from a metal like iron. We still don’t know how to do it, even hundreds of years after the medieval alchemists tried it, but it remains a fascinating topic for many. The game focuses on the lab of the alchemists and the various items you might find inside, from the books with recipes, to scrolls, lab equipment, the alchemist and some red crystals. The rest of the symbols are of the kind that doesn’t have a connection with the theme, playing cards and special feature icons.

Special Effects


The game’s scatter symbol is the one that has a red crystal on it. As a scatter symbol, it will be able to kick off a round of free spins as long as there are a minimum of three symbols of this type anywhere on the screen. Depending on the number of scatters, the player gets either 10, 15 or 20 spins for free.

The wild symbols will appear during the free spins and they are designed to look like bars of gold, silver or bronze. Each type of wild shows up on a different reel and it has a different multiplier that contributes to a combination.

The gold bar wild shows up on the 4th reel and has a 5x multiplier. The silver bar wild is reserved for the game’s 3rd reel, giving the player multipliers of 3x. Finally, the bronze bar wild shows up on the 2nd reel and it has a 2x multiplier. Multiple types of wilds can contribute to the same combo of symbols, the result being a higher multiplier, as much as 30x (5x multiplied by 3x and the result by 2x).


The game doesn’t have that much to offer its players, despite the ways to win system and the interesting way the free spins are designed. The wilds and the multipliers are not offered during the base game and the graphics are not modern enough.
