Secret Spell Slots

Sorcerers, enchantresses and magical staffs, uncover the mysteries of Secret Spell, a 5-reel slot machine by Merkur Gaming. The theme is based on mythology and the occult, meaning that every spin promises to throw up some bewitching spinning action, culminating in the slot machine's mystery “Secret Feature”, which you will learn all about in due time.

As for the base game, players can line up wins in both directions upon 10 permanently fixed paylines for a maximum jackpot potential of 4,000 credits.

Enchanting spins

Secret Spell by Merkur Gaming boasts a simple yet well achieved theme, taking after the popular genre of witches and wizards to present a game with plenty of enchanting charm.

The video slot doesn't draw out any concrete narrative, but it does make allusions to all of the staple props and characters from a classic epic of fantasy fiction. There is an ancient shield, for example, which glows with some sort of mysterious ancient power whenever it aligns to form a winning sequence. Then there are a couple of characters too, including a young and beautiful elf princess and her wise old wizard mentor, complete with the customary white locks and magnificent beard. Obviously the wizards of far-far-away-land have never quite mastered the art of shaving their facial hair!

The most beguiling and powerful symbol of all, however, is an intricately designed bronze staff. Not only does this icon act as a standard wild symbol which substitutes for all other game icons to complete payline sequences, but it will also trigger a mysterious bonus feature when two appear simultaneously on reels 1 and 5.

Unlock the secret bonus

Bonus features are usually intriguing enough without having names such as “Secret Feature”, but that is exactly what is offered on the reels of this Merkur Gaming slot machine. In order to activate the bonus round, players simply have to wait for the reels to align in such a way so that there is a bronze staff on the first and fifth reels at the same time.

Whenever that happens, players can expect some fireworks. That is because the two magical wands will shoot flashes of light across the reels. Should these two flashes of spellbinding light meet each other in the middle of the reels, then new symbol will appear to reveal more winning opportunities.

Both ways pay

Secret Spell is advertised as having just 10 paylines, which would put it firmly towards the lower end on the scale of payout frequency. However, in effect, the game actually offers double the amount of winning chances since those 10 paylines will award wins for rows on matching symbols going in both directions, from left to right and from right to left.

That means that spinners essentially get 2 paylines for the price of one, with line bet options that range from as low as 0.01 to as high as 2.00 credits. Players should note, however, that all 10 paylines are fixed, meaning that these bet per line values will be multiplied by 10x to calculate the total bet per spin.

All wins are triggered whenever three or more matching images align on a payline from the first reel going rightwards or from the last reel going leftwards. If that happens, a line bet multiplier will be applied to the wager per line value, as you can see in the following paytable:

Four on a payline
Five on a payline

Go for the gamble

As you can see, the biggest base game win in Secret Spell will work out as 4,000x credits if five wizard icons line up with a 2.00 credit line bet. However, players will find many much smaller wins over the course of the game before they hit those jackpot highs. If you do get a smaller win which is less than 140 credits in value, then you can give it a bit of a bonus boost by going for a gamble.

There are two gamble side games available. The first is a straight up 50/50 gamble which offers double or nothing outcomes – all you have to do is guess the colour of a face down playing card. Simple. The other gamble is a little bit more interesting, because it presents a ladder of increasingly more valuable prizes, giving punters a chance to boost their wins with each upward step. If players fall down the ladder then they will still have a chance to climb back up, unless they fall all the down to the lowest step.

A secret worth spinning?

In all honest, Secret Spell is a fairly basic and straightforward video slot. The design is conventional with no particularly mind-blowing animations or effects. Plus, the gameplay is more or less straightforward with no overly complicated side games or big bonus multipliers.

There is, however a chance to win prizes in both directions and benefit from a mystery bonus feature. Therefore, this slot machine is perfect for spinners who are after some magical action with some simple spins and minimal bonus action.
