Brew Big Wins in Potion Spells Slot
Alchemy was a medieval precursor to chemistry that was primarily focused on converting elements like iron or tin into precious metals like gold. Needless to say, they never managed it. Well, it’s time to revive the ancient practice and turn your balance into riches with BGaming’s new Potion Spells slot.
Are you ready to brew a potion?
The slot’s gameplay revolves around cascading wins that replace symbols involved in winning combinations with new symbols. This gives you multiple chances to win from a single spin.
One of the most notable base game features is the Big Symbol feature which is triggered when four of the same symbols appear in a 2×2 configuration. The four symbols will transform into a single large symbol and will receive a 2x multiplier that will be applied to any winning combination the symbol is involved in.
Then there are backlit symbols that will appear on the reels with every spin. If these symbols are involved in a winning combination, the symbols will disappear and be replaced by two wild symbols. The slot also has a second chance symbol that will turn a random number of symbols on the reels into wilds. The feature is triggered randomly on any non-winning spin.
The main bonus feature, however, is the progress bar. Every symbol that is involved in a winning combination will add one point to the progress bar. Each tube on the progress bar requires 25 points to fill. Once one is filled, progress on the next tube will begin. The progress bar is reset at the beginning of each spin. If you manage to fill one to four of the tubes, they will be tipped into the cauldron following the conclusion of the spin and randomly activate one of four bonus features.
- Detonation – three to six symbols are turned into wild symbols and each of them destroys four symbols around it without payment.
- Promotion – a randomly chosen symbol turns itself and its copies into a higher-paying symbol.
- Separation – a wild symbol appears in the center of the slot and all symbols along the diagonal of that wild are turned into the same randomly chosen symbol.
- Reduction – all low-paying symbols are destroyed without payment.
When you manage to fill all four tubes and then some, you’ll trigger the pot feature that will throw large pot symbols on the reels to supercharge your winnings.
If you’re not keen on waiting for your potion to boil, you can select to buy a round of the slot’s bonus feature.
Is Potion Spells slot magic or meh?
Potion Spells slot isn’t going to knock your socks off with its theme or graphics as both are basic will little attention to detail. However, thanks to some impressive gameplay and bonus feature design, the team at BGaming has managed to transform what might have been a dull slot into one that’s surprisingly fun to play.
The slot is stuck with very high volatility meaning that you’ll have to get through significant stretches of time between wins. This is slightly helped by the 12,000x max multiplier which gives you a chance to bet at the €0.20 minimum and still expect some impressive wins. However, that volatility will be noticeable in the gameplay. The slot has an RTP rating of 96.25%.
