Special Features

The first feature to highlight is the game features 2 Wild symbols. The first Wild symbol is illustrated by the word ‘Wild’ in a magical light blue font. Similar to most Wild symbols, the main function of this symbol is to substitute for all other symbols except the Scroll and Chest symbols to help form winning combinations on the reels. The second Wild symbol is represented by an image of the Wizard and also substitutes for the Scroll and Chest symbols. If you happen to land a full reel of Wizard Wild symbols then you will activate the Wizard Wilds feature where all standard Wizard symbols on the reels transform into Wilds to really boost your chances of landing a big payout on the reels. Keep a very close eye on both Wilds symbols as they are the highest paying symbols in the game. If you are lucky enough to land 5 of these symbols on an active payline then you will be waving your magic wand up and down with a nice payout worth 15X your bet.

As you play the game, look out for special gold and silver coins symbols which are randomly added to the reels and are collected in a special Bonus Bank. The coins are displayed in a meter to the left of the reels. These coins are extremely important as they are used to buy special extras in the Wizard Shop feature.

To trigger the Wizard Shop feature, you need to land 3 Scatter symbols anywhere on reels 1, 3, and 5. The Scatter symbol is denoted by an image of 3 scrolls wrapped together and only appears on reels 1, 3, and 5 in the main game. In the Wizard Shop feature, you will be awarded 10 Free Spins plus 120 bonus coins and whatever bonus coins you have accumulated so far. The bonus coins can be used to purchase upgrades to enhance the reels during Free Spins. For example, you can add between 50 to 250 added Wilds to the reels which will cost you 100 gold coins for 50 Wilds. You can also opt for highly lucrative Wild Multipliers ranging from 2X all the way up to 10X as well as Scatter Prizes which range from 1X to 5X the total bet for each Treasure Chest symbol that appears on the reels. The only downside to this fantastic feature is that the Wizard Shop feature cannot be won during Free Spins.

Theme and Graphics

The game features exquisite graphics and is superbly designed as it takes place inside of a wizard’s shop that’s full of rune stones, potions, books, as well as a sleeping owl! The symbols in the game are nicely detailed and consist of the Wizard, a Book, an Hourglass, some colourful potions, and an assortment of different coloured rune stones. The animations are stylish as symbols move up and down the reels smoothly and pop nicely when part of a winning combination. I especially liked how the Wizard symbol expands and transforms the Wizard from purple to gold when the Wizard Wilds feature triggers. It's a nice visual touch.

The music is upbeat with a playful hint of mystery. It complements the magic theme of the game perfectly.

The game has 50 paylines, an excellent RTP of 97%, and a maximum payout of 7,500X your original bet.

Our Verdict on Wizard Shop

Push Gaming produced this charming slot and it’s one shop that we really enjoyed dropping in on! The game is expertly designed, really fun to play, and contains a nice range of bonus features to keep players entertained for countless hours. The magic theme has been explored many times before but it feels fresh and unique in this game thanks to the highly innovative Wizard Shop feature. Speaking of this feature, you can land some huge cash payouts here especially when you collect lots of bonus coins before entering the Wizard Shop. It’s actually possible to win a mammoth 7,500X your stake on each Free Spin when you have the 10X Multiplier attached! I found this slot to be of medium to high variance so it might take you a few spins before you eventually land a good enough payout on the reels. For slots with a similar magic theme, check out Magic Castle and Ozwin’s Jackpots.
