Alchymedes : Pattern Oriented Spreading Wilds and Growing Multiplier Could Bring Big Wins!
Alchymedes online slot by Yggdrasil presents a different take on the Spreading Wild mechanism. Every Wild icon in view after a spin follows a specific pattern when spreading new Wilds to neighboring positions. The feature combines with a randomly growing multiplier that applies to the last winnings of a completed game level.
The Alchemy concept of turning metal into gold is depicted here as means of completing a game level. The progression of a particular stage is illustrated through the gradual conversion of the Green Wild Potion into Gold. Every position of a win line has potential to bring out a gold background, as the transformation occurs in conjunction with win events. Level completion is then attained when all 20 reel-positions (4 rows of tiles x 5 columns) have been highlighted in gold.
This unique online casino betting-entertainment offers 60 win lines in all. Thirty of which are for win diagrams that must be filled starting from the leftmost reels. The other 30 lines follow the same diagrams but in reverse order. Groupings of identical symbols, filling up any win diagram starting from the rightmost reel, are also evaluated as wins.
Alchymedes Online Slot: Spreading Wilds
Yggdrasil's Spreading Wilds feature is unique because the substitute icons extend to adjacent positions according to a given pattern of a game level. Every Wild Symbol, landing as outcome of a spin, reproduces four or more additional wild cards. However, not all additional Wilds may become visible, especially if the emerging and spreading substitute icon landed on positions near the borders.
Still, it is also possible for the reels to return after a spin with more than one Spreading Wild. Such an occurrence increases possibilities of landing multiple combinations that could speed up the completion of the current game level. After all, every symbol comprising a payline win is instrumental in turning a reel position into Gold.
The current Spreading Wild pattern is displayed via a Green Potion held by a laboratory contraption. The pattern changes in random order once a player advances to a higher game level.
Alchymedes Online Slot : Growing Multiplier
The Multiplier progression is shown via the lab device displayed on the right side of the slot screen. In each game level, the multiplier factor starts at x1. Random increases occur in increments of 1, or more but up to 5, with possibilities of raising the factor for that level to a maximum of x100.
The Multiplier though is not a regular Win-Multiplier as it takes effect only upon level completion. As it is, the Multiplier is applicable only to the last winnings earned from the recently concluded stage.
Alchymedes Online Slot: Game Level Completion
Prior to advancing to the next stage, Alchymedes slot players will be asked to select one of two potions presented via The Alchemist's Scale:
The Green Wild Potion, increases the effectiveness of the Spreading Wild in the game level to which an Alchymedes slot player is advancing.
The Red Multiplier Potion, increases the potential progressions of the multiplier factor in the game level to which an Alchymedes slot player is advancing.
Alchymedes Online Slot: Random Bonus Features
Completing a game level could also trigger at random, the activation of a Bonus Feature. Once activated, one of the following will be awarded arbitrarily:
• Coin Wins ranging from 100 up to 2000
• Starting Multiplier of 2x for the incoming game level.
• Starting Multiplier of 3x for the incoming game level.
• One (1) Extra position for the Spreading Wild Pattern of the incoming game level
• Two (2) Extra positions for the Spreading Wild Pattern of the incoming game level
• Rapid Growth of Multiplier in the incoming game level
Alchymedes online slot by Yggdrasil Gaming could prove to be a rewarding betting game, in light of its Spreading Wild feature that works well in a pay-both-ways scheme, and in combination with a level-completion Multiplier. The Spreading Wilds are pattern oriented as one or more that comes into view extends the additional substitute icons in accordance with a given diagram. As the game advances to higher levels, players are given the chance to increase the effectiveness of either the Spreading Wilds or the Multiplier via the Alchymedes Scale and by way of a random bonus feature.
