Alkemor’s Tower is a witch and wizardry themed video slot, and it’s a colourful one at that. Like all BetSoft Gaming slots, this one features animation and 3D graphics. There are a number of magic themed slots on the net, so BetSoft Gaming really needed to up the ante with this one in order to beat off the competition. To be perfectly honest, they have done a reasonable job with that.
BetSoft Gaming broke new ground with Alkemor’s Tower. This was one of their first slot machines to feature the famous and much-loved 243 ways to win payline structure. Naturally, you won’t be able to adjust any of those lines, or wager on a bet-per-line basis. Stakes can be costly in this slot, with a minimum wager costing you at least 60p a pop. If you wish to push the boat out, you can wager as much as £150 per spin on this game.
Prizes are actually rather petite in Alkemor’s Tower. You are still looking at a non-progressive prize which is capped at 1,720 coins, and that isn’t bad. It is hardly as good as some of the prizes in order BetSoft Gaming titles, though. You can win this prize by landing 5 wizard symbols on any payline. Given the number of paylines in the slot, it is hardly surprising that the jackpot isn’t quite what we’d expect.
Ignoring the gamble feature – which let’s face it, it is a complete waste of time – there is one very delightful bonus worth looking at in this game. It is known as the Elemental Spells bonus. There are four Elemental Spell symbols on the reels, and you can trigger them by combining spell books on the first and second reels, with a elemental symbol on the third reel. Land spell books on the fourth and fifth reels to boost the power of the spell.
The Water Elemental Spell is capable of turning the second, third, fourth and/or fifth reels wild. All spellbooks on the first reel will turn into random payable symbols. The Earth Elemental Spell can offer you the same kind of deal, but with cascading symbols a feature of this bonus. The Air Elemental Spell can see you bag the same wild deal, with additional symbols appearing randomly on the reels. The final bonus (Fire Elemental Spell) can offer you the usual wild reels, as well as extra wilds, and random spell book payable symbols on the first reel.
Free spins bonus
Land two spell books and a vine-wrapped spell book on consecutive reels and you can win 10, 12 or 15 free spins on the Nature Floor. During this free games feature, all vines appearing on the third reel will devour their neighbouring symbols and offer rewards. Combine two spell books and a star encrusted spell book on consecutive reels to win 10, 12 or 15 free games with a black hole feature. This feature can see black holes appearing on the second or fourth reels, replace other neighbouring symbols and offer rewards.
Alkemor’s Tower is jam-packed with features and that is its charm. There are no basic wilds in the base game (which is frustrating) but with so many other ways to trigger features, we’re willing to put that complaint to the side and move on.
