The alchemist’s lab is certainly one of the most imaginative slots ever to grace the screens of online casinos. This one liner is a true gem and the reels are not designed to look like the reels of a machine but rather like cogs in a real lab. The button below each reel resembles an old fashioned pedal that when clicked actually depresses. Every single last detail has been designed to fit in with this super crazy laboratory. The point of the game is to make the most valuable gold coin possible. The potion book lies open above the reels and lists the winning combinations. On the left is a blue bottle, perched on a Bunsen burner, labeled with the winning amount and the green filled bottle on the right has your bet amount imprinted on it. The animations are as quirky as the game as a whole. For each win a magnifying glass encircles the relevant line on the paytable in the aging book.
A zany and quirky slot one can only imagine that the alchemist sitting behind the table is as crazy as he is smart. There is only one reel and one payline which is identified by the twin highly detailed spires coming from either side. You can bet either one, two or three coins on this payline by pressing one of the three compression pads just below each of the reels.
The coin size is fixed to 2c and betting all three coins leaves you with a max bet of 6c. This is a great game to have some fun with where your money will certainly last, possibly even long enough to get three gold coins in a row or a few shots at the bonus round.
The gold coin will pay a very decent jackpot of 10,000 coins. In comparison to a meager wager of just 3 coins this is certainly a very generous reward for being the best gold-smithing alchemist in town. Three matching symbols on the payline will pay out since there is no wild. To make up for that a single gold coin or even two gold coins will pay something just to keep your spirits high. The symbols include bottles with various colored potions and a blue test tube. As a gold smith it is no surprise that there are also valuable gold rings to be found in the book of potions.
The one symbol that has seemingly no value on the reels but plenty of value if found in threes, is the book. This is the symbol that unlocks the bonus round where you can start making gold coins and raking in some very good cash.
Once the three books appear on the centre payline at the same time you will be allowed to enter the alchemist’s secret lab. As you move your eye over the various potions in all sizes and colors you glance up to the cauldron bubbling away in the corner. Choose three out of the selection of bottles that will be added to the cauldron to make a gold coin. As you watch, the contents of the cauldron changes color and liquid gold filters down the pipe on its side into the coin mold. The coin is given a short time to set and it is weighed for value. The value of the coin is announced and added to your balance as you graciously return to the reels for another round of wagering to get you back into the lab.
This single line slot will keep you engaged and entranced at the images not just on the reels but in the background and especially in the bonus round. The more you play the more you notice. Download the casino software and get playing. This is one game that can spell gold.
