Step inside the deep magical forest and meet Alchymedes, the powerful sorcerer and alchemist that turns metal into gold and makes a potion for eternal winnings. Alchymedes slot is a superb creation coming from Yggdrasil that has really mastered the skill of producing premium quality slots. Visually stunning this 5 reel 60 payline slot can be played on desktop, mobile or tablet. The players will find themselves inside the alchemist’s cabin which looks more of a scientific laboratory with all the boiling potions and bottles all around.
There are four kinds of potions in his lab: purple, golden, blue and green. Wonderfully crafted potion vials will store these precious liquids and act as top-paying symbols, paying 500, 400, 300 or 200 coins for five of a kind, respectively. The rest of the images appearing will present card suit icons designed completely in style with the theme.
Crisp and colourful 5x4 reel set houses 60 reels – 30 from left to right and 30 vice versa. This means that the winning combinations are calculated both ways.
What makes this video slot unique is that it does not offer Free Spins, as most slots do. It is devised in a completely different way than what we are used to seeing in other 5-reel spinners. Actually, it has a video game feel to it, as the players go through six levels while they spin. What happens is this: whenever a winning combination is scored the tiles will turn into gold. The aim is to turn all 20 tiles golden and then the level is passed. Each level starts with 1x multiplier which can increase randomly up to 5x and it applies to the last win of the level.
The pot boiling with green elixir represents the Wild that acts as a substitute for any symbol in the game. The Wild appears in patterns, which means that the pot will spill the elixir and turn adjacent symbols into Wilds to help players complete the level faster. Once the level is complete the players get to choose to enhance the multiplier feature or wild pattern feature. This is a nice addition that gives the players some level of control.
When it comes to Bonus features, Alchymedes does include one, but it is triggered randomly at the end of the level. It holds several prizes: an instant cash prize between 100 and 2,000 coins, 2x or 3x starting multiplier, the Rapid Multiplier Growth feature that means that the multiplier increases with every spin and finally the players could benefit from one or two added Wild Pattern positions.
This interesting set-up of the game is playable from $0.30 to $60 and it can bring the jackpot prize of 300,000 coins, while the RTP is 96.1%. Though it might seem complicated, it is as simple as any other slot. We can say that it is a medium variance game as it lands winning combos quite frequently.
