Amazing Alchemist is one of the games that are available via Leander Games, and it’s a slot machine where the developer chose to base the story on magic and on the alchemy of the Middle Ages. The game uses the usual spellbook and magic inspired design that you see in plenty of releases available today.
As for the way that you play the game, you’re looking at a layout that involves 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols, with a total of 30 active lines set up for them. There are plenty of features to be found inside, and in fact each reel has its own to offer along with a feature zone that triggers it under the right conditions. Wild symbols, free spins, scatters and bonus games are all included. Payout wise, you can go for a top prize of $10,000 and in the long run the RTP is going to average out at 95%.
Betting and Prizes
You get to choose the amount that goes into each active line. You pick a denomination for the coin basically, which varies from $0.01 to $10. It’s the way that you can adjust the total bet, since the 30 lines are going to be a fixed component. You have a large range to work with, the total varying between $0.30 and $300.
Moving on to the payouts that are available, the slot can give you rewards of 1,000 coins, so that translates into $10,000 cash. It wouldn’t be a problem if the RTP was on the high side, but it’s not, and you get only 95% on average from it.
Amazing Alchemist Slot Features
You get some features that are unique to this slot, but there are plenty that feel common as well. The wild would clearly be among the latter, a symbol that you can have in any winning combination, if the position it lands on is the correct one. It also pays well enough through its own combinations, giving you the 1,000 coins jackpot this way.
If the scatters are the ones that interest you more, then expect to find those on reels 1, 3 and 5 for the free spins triggers, and on reels 2, 3 and 4 for the ones giving you a bonus game.
Spell Book Free spins will deliver 3 rounds to you, where the Alchemist will appear and will offer you a Spell Book. By opening it, you will get from it a certain type of feature for the free spins. All options include instant prizes, but then you can also get wilds, wilds with multipliers, wilds and wild reels, wild reels and wilds with multipliers, or all three at the same time.
As for the Alchemist’s Chamber, that’s the bonus game and it’s going to require that you pick from the six available ingredients. Your choices will determine the payouts that you get.
The more unusual side of the game is the fact that it has a different feature assigned for each reel. This is the Elemental Royals feature, which triggers when the corresponding symbol appears in the feature zone of a reel. The playing cards and the wild are the ones that get to trigger these extra features, usually adding extra wilds or cash prizes.
Theme & Design
The Alchemist theme is an old one, and it’s no wonder since it’s all about turning ordinary metal into gold, something that fits with the slot machine industry’s approach to wealth. It’s a decent looking slot, which has a pretty standard mix of playing cards and alchemy related symbols.
Amazing Alchemist is a good choice mostly because of the features that it implements, and even the graphics could be a plus for it. I’m not a fan of the 95% RTP though.
