Have you ever wondered what it might be like to be a wizard? We’re not talking about Harry Potter or the 1970s glam rock band. We’re talking about the real arcane arts. Forget silly potions, wand waving and incantations, Wizard’s Ring is the real deal when it comes to magic, presenting a maestro wizard character of ancient times and his enchanted ring of bonus power.
The game’s reels contain some of the simple props that any keen student of magic requires. There are scrolls filled with secrets of the sorcery and a set of candles to read them by – after all, being a master of magic is more about knowing your stuff than simply waving a wand around like a wazzock!
Aesthetically, Wizard’s Ring isn’t as spellbinding as some slot machines online. In fact, the game is a little bit bare when it comes to captivating imagery and bewitching animations. The reels are set over a basic black background and all of the images are presented in traditional two-dimensional illustrations. If punters really want to indulge in some spellbinding spins with 3D animations then they should check out the likes of Alkemor’s Tower by BetSoft or Fantisini Master of Mystery by NetEnt software.
Wizard’s Ring has 40 paylines available for punters to line their winning sequences upon. However, there is an option for spinners to potentially limit their losses by activating fewer paylines down to the minimum of 1 single payline. No matter how many lines are active, players will always have the chance to win line bet multiplier prizes worth up to 1,000x.
While having a smaller number of paylines in play will make for a smaller total bet, it will mean that line wins will become harder to find in this medium volatility slot machine. What’s more, the highest base game win in the slot is 300x a total bet multiplier – awarded whenever five ring symbols appear scattered on the reels. So, it actually makes sense to play with all 40 paylines in order to keep the total bet high for some big potential wins with the scattered ring.
With the maximum number of paylines active, the largest possible bet is a whopping 100.00. The smallest possible wager is 0.40.
Progressive Jackpot Bounty
What magic tricks has this slot machine got in store? Well, not a lot in actual fact, at least when compared to some other new slot machines online. As far as the bonus action goes, punters will be limited to the conventional wild symbol (depicted by the wizard) and a free spin triggering scatter icon (depicted by the ring). You will find these bonus features available on most video slots, although this game does give punters the chance to win some very big jackpots when the two features combine…
That is because players who trigger the free spins round of Wizard’s Ring will be able to win a progressive jackpot bounty thanks to some sticky expanding wild icons. Basically, three or more scatters will activate a series of 15 free spins, during which all wild wizards will expand and remain in place for one extra spin. Should all five reels be filled with the wise old wizard at the same time, the progressive jackpot kitty will be won. The size of the ever-growing bonus prize is correspondent to the size of the overall bet.
Worth a Spin?
Wizard’s Ring is a progressive jackpot slot machine by Novomatic software that offers up some simple spellbinding spins. Admittedly, players will be able to find more visually thrilling magic-themed slots online but, then again, the chance to win a progressive jackpot prize presents plenty of exciting spins in itself.
