How to play Secret Elixir™Click here for a print friendly version
Quasar Gaming has something of a fascination with alchemy when it comes to slot games. They are well known for their other game, The Alchemist, and fans of that one and new players alike will be pleased to see that the same overriding quality and attention to detail has been applied to Secret Elixir, which is also a great slot game in its own right. The action comes as thick and fast as any player could hope for, with stunningly detailed symbols matched only by the attention to detail that makes for a true Quasar Gaming gaming experience. If you’ve played before then you’re all set to get up and running in style as the online version of the game is the same as the land based one that you may well have played before. If not, and even if you simply need a bit of refreshment on how the game plays and what to expect, we’ve got all of that and more in the full feature below.
When you first load up Secret Elixir for play, you’ll almost certainly notice that the fifth reel is a little out of the ordinary, although we’ll come on to that in a moment. First up, things remain slightly more traditional as the basic concept on the slot is the same as always, with five reels and a choice of different win line combinations. The game was designed with ten lines in mind, and your line bet is then applied to each win line, with both numbers together representing your total stake. The reason for choosing a bet for each line is that this number is used to decide what the various symbols are worth, and you can take a look for yourself by heading into the pay table.A great touch of detail on the slot is the fact that even the playing card icons, which appear on virtually every Quasar Gaming slot, have been designed with the theme in mind and take on the form of alchemy apparatus.
They’re only the start of the action though, with themed symbols including all manner of gems, statues and more and you’ll want to see them as often as possible as they pay out the largest amounts during basic gameplay. The alchemist fills in gaps as a wild card and will fill in for any other symbol except the scatter.Now, the core element of basic gameplay is the fifth reel, and you’ll quickly notice that rather than standard symbols, it instead displays a range of multipliers. As with any slot, the only time the fifth reel becomes important is when there are four of a kind before it. Spin in such a combination and whichever multiplier amount takes up the fifth reel on the win line will be applied to the total prize amount. It adds an element of randomness to proceedings, where you never know quite how much five of a kind will be worth and is sure to keep players entertained.
A great base game is complemented on Secret Elixir by an equally great bonus round and three scatters, represented by the Philosopher’s Stone, are required for access. Spin in that combination and you’ll scoop twelve free spins. That’s not all, as you’ll soon see that the multipliers on the fifth reel are even bigger, ensuring that the bonus game takes its rightful position as the most potentially valuable part of the game overall.
Rounding off the action on Secret Elixir is the gamble round, which comes into play when a winning combination appears on the reels. No matter the multiplier, if one is applied at all, you can take a shot at doubling the cash prize total on a fifty-fifty game of chance.
