Alchymedes Slot Review Slot Review

Bill Nye the Science Guy will be thrilled with this chemistry inspired slot. Follow the green fumes deep into the woods where a little cabin is nestled next to a stream. This is not the serial killer type cabin but one that is bubbling with potions and experiments that turn liquids into wilds and multipliers. If only I was that good in chemistry at school, I wouldn’t have chosen a career that my parents see only as a hobby.

Gameplay

Alchymedes is a 5x4 reel, 30 (both ways) payline video slot powered by Yggdrasil software. Symbols include (in order of increasing pay value) Card Suits Spades, Hearts, Clubs and Diamonds, there are also 4 different coloured potions namely Green, Blue, Orange and Purple. The only special symbol is the Wild but works in a unique way, there is also a Multiplier Feature and Random Bonus Feature. The game also has different levels attached to it. More detail will be given in the features section.

The game controls at the bottom of the screen from left to right are: a Plus Icon that expands to the Information button with the Pay Table, Game Settings button, Game History button, Game Rules button and Sound button. Next is the Ways Window, adjustable Coin Value window, Cash Bet window, Max Bet button, Spin button, Autoplay button, Win window and Balance Window.

Features

Like most Yggdrasil games there are loads of features that take a minute to wrap your head around. Alchymedes has the following features: Game Levels, Spreading Wild Patterns, Level Completion Multipliers, The Alchemist’s Scales and Random Bonus Feature. All of the above mentioned are unique in their own way so continue to read below in the Unique Features Section.

Unique Features

The game starts at level 1, each symbol position needs to be won in order to move to the next level. Each time there is a line win landed, the background of the symbol positions in the line win are marked in gold and remain so until the end of the level has been reached. Remember the line wins are both ways so this happens faster than you might think.

You will notice that on each side of the reels window there are chemistry apparatuses set up, one with green liquid and the other in red. We will start with the green one on the left first. This is the Spreading Wild apparatus with a specific pattern on the top glass jar. When landing a Spreading Wild, it will begin to spread over other symbol positions according to the pattern indicated on the jar. There are more than 15000 different patterns in the game.

Now moving on the the red apparatus on the right, this is the Level Completion Multiplier apparatus. It goes without saying that each level starts with a 1x multiplier but this multiplier can increase 1-5 times during each spin at random. You are only awarded the multiplier value at the end of the level with the total multiplier accumulated during the level and is added to the winning combination that completes the level.

The Alchemist’s Scales appear before the start of a new level. Here you can choose between adding more of the green potion to increase the Spreading Wild potential or adding more of the red potion to increase the multiplier potential in the next level.

Last but not least, or should I say finally, we have the Random Bonus feature. This bonus is triggered at random before the start of a level after having chosen your potion in the Alchemist’s Scales feature. 1 of the following 6 random features can be awarded:
100-2000 coins paid once the level is completed (this prize is not multiplied by the multiplier at the end of the level)
2x Multiplier
3xMultiplier
1 extra Spreading Wild pattern position
2 extra Spreading Wild pattern positions
Rapid Multiplier Growth guarantees a multiplier increase after every sin during the level

Performance

Alchymedes may be far too complicated for some but avid gamers will be spellbound by it. Incredible graphics, innovation and animations with creative and fun features that, as you have read above, seem like they can go on forever. Brilliant game play that one has come to expect from Yggdrasil. The RTP is 96.1% with medium volatility.

Max Win

The max coin win is 300000

Conclusion

And here I thought chemistry was boring but man this game is spectacular. The amount of innovative thought gone into the game is admirable and extremely well received. Alchymedes is a glimpse of what the future holds for online gaming. Absolutely splendid. Time to haul out my chemistry set from when I was a kid and concoct a potion that will change my life choices and make me a coin producing professor living in the woods.
