You don’t need to be a wise old wizard to enjoy Alkemor’s Tower, and that is fortunate as there is plenty of magic to be cast in this outstanding addition to the Betsoft slots list.
With 243 ways in which to win, you won’t need to dust off your magic wand in an attempt to cast a winning spell over your reels, and the groovy soundtrack and clever animations, which feature the eponymous grand wizard Alkemor, all add to the fun.
Alkemor’s Tower features a whole host of mystical symbols to unveil, and remember that matching three or more of these on a payline, starting from reel 1 on the left, will earn you a prize.
There are eight main game symbols for players to match on their reels:
And then finally, you might be lucky enough to welcome Alkemor onto your reels. Match three of this bearded wizard and you will earn 375 coins, four pays 875 and five a substantial 1,750 coins.
And that’s the real beauty of Alkemor’s Tower: even the main game pays out some fantastic prizes to players who can spin three or more matching symbols.
The icons that look like little pots of potion in Alkemor’s Tower are the Elemental symbols, and these help to trigger the Elemental Spells which are inherent to unlocking some huge prizes. Match two Spell Book symbols on reels 1 and 2, and any of the Elemental symbols on reel 3, to create a spell. A further Spell Book symbol on reel 4 and/or 5 will increase the power of the magic.
The Water Elemental Spell is triggered by spinning the Water Element symbol on reel 3. This creates a huge wave of water that is summoned by Alkemor, which washes across your gameboard. All of the Element and Spell Book symbols on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 will become wild, whilst the Spell Book in reel 1 will transform into a paying symbol. All wins are then recalculated and the payout is multiplied by the number of special symbols that triggered the spell.
This process is repeated for the other Elemental symbols: match the sequence outlined above with the Earth Element and a shower of meteors will crash into the reels (that Alkemor is a real showman), destroying the symbols on your gameboard and causing a new selection to fall into place. Any subsequent wins are added to your prize pot.
Pick up the Air Elemental symbol on reel 3 and Alkemor will summon a huge tornado that blows all of your basic symbols off the board, before they fall calmly back into place in new positions on your reels. Should this mighty gust create any new winning combos then you will pocket the prize money accordingly.
Finally there is the Fire Elemental symbol, and – yep, you guessed it – Alkemor causes a right old blaze when this is spun on reel 3 in conjunction with Spell Books on reels 1 and 2. All of your Elemental and Spell Book symbols will burn wild, with extra wilds added to your reels for good measure.
Alkemor’s Tower features not one but two Free Spin floors too: the Nature Floor and the Celestial Floor. Combine the three designated symbols as outlined in the paytable to be taken to an enchanting new environment, where plenty of additional prizes await you.
You will earn 10, 12 or 15 free spins depending on the number of Elemental symbols spun, and your reels will feature some new symbols which don’t crop up in the main game that relate to the specific floor you find yourself on. If you’re lucky you might even spin the Vine (Nature Floor) or Black Hole (Celestial Floor) symbols, which gobble up their neighbouring reels to create some fantastic wins.
Alkemor’s Tower also includes its own gamble feature, which this time is a toss of a coin rather than the usual turning of a card. Guess heads or tails to double up your winnings.
