Secrets of Alchemy from EGT: Slot Review - conjure up something fabulous with this game!

Dare to enter the Alchemist's lair and find that magical potion that turns everything into gold?

If you have a penchant for magic, chemistry and alchemy then this slot is tailor-made just for you. Alchemists were known to work tirelessly on creating formulas that would perfect objects. A popular form of alchemy involves transmutating a base metal into gold.

Play this slot and you can turn this gold into a big cash payout.

The game has 5 reels, 25 paylines, and has some interesting features such as stacked wilds, toppling reels, free spins, progressive jackpots and a gamble option.

Special Features

The first thing I encountered while playing this game was the Wild symbol which is denoted by an old man image. As usual, the Wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter symbol which is denoted by a floating island. An interesting thing about the Wild symbol is that it is stacked and only appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.
If you land 3 or more Scatter symbols anywhere on reels 1, 2, and 3 then you will trigger the Free Spins mode. This feature awards you with 7 free spins and thankfully free spins can be retriggered when you land more Scatter symbols.

This slot features toppling reels. This means when you land a winning combination and all prizes are paid out, the winning symbols will then disappear. These gaps on the reels are then filled with the symbols above them. It is quite original and really fun to watch when you form a win on the reels.

There is also a Gamble option. This is triggered when you land a winning combination on the reels and it involves guessing the colours of some random playing cards. If you guess the colour correctly then your win is doubled but tread carefully as if you guess incorrectly then you will lose your current winnings and be taken back to the main game.

There are also 4 progressive jackpots to try and win and they are displayed on the top of the screen. These jackpots can be won at any moment, regardless of what is happening on the reels.

Theme and Graphics

The game’s theme is nicely illustrated throughout this slot. The background is covered with wonderful green and yellow ornate designs. The symbols are intricately detailed and move nicely along the reels as they spin.

There is no real music to mention apart from the sound effects and they include snappy thuds, bangs, and a cool swoosh sound when you form a winning combination on the reels. I did encounter some orchestral type music when I triggered the Free Spins mode so make sure to keep an eye out for that!

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 25 paylines, a fine RTP of 96.10% and a four-level progressive jackpot.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the line bet when you spin the reels.

  • Scatter Floating Island Symbol: 5 for 3X
