How to play Secrets of AlchemyClick here for a print friendly version
You might not realize it, but every time you get busy with your favorite online slots, you’re attempting your own kind of alchemy. Though instead of turning other metals into gold, you’re doing your best to turn on-screen symbols into cash payouts! Perhaps not exactly the same thing, but similar…if you get the idea!
As such, trying your hand with Secrets of Alchemy for a few spins at least really is a no-brainer. A supremely popular release from Bulgarian based software developer Euro Games Technology, Secrets of Alchemy is all about turning nothing into something special. So while it may look somewhat simple and unimpressive at first glance, there’s much more to this superb slot that meets the eye!
As usual from Euro Games Technology, Secrets of Alchemy features five reels, three rows and a total of 25 paylines to play for. As all 25 paylines remain in play at all times, spins are available from 25 coins and up to a maximum of 500 for bigger spenders. Decide how much you want to put on the line and hit the start button to see whether there could be gold in your future!
In-play symbols include a book of alchemy formulas, bars of gold, golden roses and a somewhat conspicuous looking woman and man. Their presence in the game is never fully explained by EGT, so feel free to make up your own story for both of them! The old man carrying a vial of liquid serves as the wild card, while the floating island is the scatter you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for.
One of the most interesting features of Secrets of Alchemy is an optional ‘gamble’ feature, which you can only use if your winning combination is worth less than 875 coins. If you do, hit the button to decide whether you think the next card will be red or black – get it right and your prize will be doubled in an instant!
Line up three scatter symbols in any positions on the same spin and Secrets of Alchemy will reward you with a generous seven free spins to play with. Even during the free spins bonus round, the same optional gamble feature applies – if the winning combination is worth less than 875 coins. And if you’re really lucky, you might make your way over to the Secrets of Alchemy jackpot bonus round, where you’ll pick three cards from a deck of 12 to win the corresponding jackpot. There are four progressive jackpots to be won and this outstanding special feature can be triggered at any time, both during the base game and the free spins bonus round!
With an RTP of 96.10% and a relatively low volatility level, Secrets of Alchemy makes for a genuinely enjoyable experience. After all, who can resist the thought of just one more spin being sufficient to access one of those FOUR incredible progressive jackpots?
We certainly can’t…we’re not sure anyone else could, either!
