Secrets of the Sorcerer Slot Review (iSoftBet)

Take on the Role of a Slot Alchemist in the Retro-Themed Secrets of the Sorcerer Slot!

Mr Vegas Casino and Videoslots are preparing to mix up a storm with the Secrets of the Sorceror slot release from iSofBet, with a scheduled release due for the 18th of August 2021.

A full iSoftbet portfolio of games is playable at both casinos, including fantastic recent releases such as Wild Hammer Megaways and the wacky Royale with Cheese Megaways.

Secrets of the Sorcerer is a completely different release from iSofBet, a stripped-back classic 8-bit retro gaming theme, both visually and in terms of in-game sound effects and music, which can become quite annoying after extended exposure!

Secrets of the Sorcerer Slot - Retro Loading Screen

Gameplay-wise, you have a mix of styles that reminded us of the classic retro Flame Busters slot from Thunderkick and gameplay mechanics similar to Where’s the Gold (Aristocrat), which iSoftbet has emulated previously in their hugely underplayed Fishin for Gold slot.

However, there are a few new features here worth looking into, with a Bonus Chance Feature that collects scatters from the base game, giving you a Gamble option for a Bonus Trigger, and a unique Secrets Uncovered randomly activated feature that can produce a big base game win or trigger the bonus round!

Multiplier wilds also feature on this slot. Its big win potential seems reliant on being awarded these Multiplier WIlds during the bonus round. More on that later with our 1000 Spins playtest!

Secrets of the Sorcerer Slot – Base Gameplay

Secrets of the Sorcerer Slot - Bonus Trigger

In Secrets of the Sorceror, you have a fairly standard 5×3 reel layout with 25 fixed paylines. It is definitely worth looking through the paytable, as some of the paylines are unusual in that they cover the same positions on the earlier reels (Paylines, 1, 22 and 23).

For example, landing a 3 of a kind on what looks to be payline 1 will pay out on these paylines too, so if you are scratching your head whilst playing, why do some paylines seem to pay more? This is why!

With no wilds appearing in the base game, you are looking to trigger the bonus feature as quickly as possible with 3 Potion Scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. Also, keep an eye out for the randomly activated Secrets Uncovered feature, which can produce a big base game win or instantly trigger the bonus feature.

Landing 2 scatters and nearly triggering the bonus feature isn’t wasted on this slot either. The unique Bonus Chance will collect these and offer you a gamble at triggering a bonus feature. The more 2 Scatters you collect, the higher your chances of winning when this option is used (1% each time).

This Bonus Chance feature accounts for 2.89% of this slots RTP, so think of it almost as a bonus feature grind, unless you like to gamble earlier into the collection process.

Free Spins and Bonus Features

Golden Wild Symbols

Wild Symbols

The Wild symbols only appear during Free Spins, there are no base wilds on this slot. Once the bonus round is triggered you have a small auto-picking feature where the Wilds are selected for you, dependant on which potion you selected as your free games option.

These Wild symbols will appear as Golden symbols during the bonus round and if lucky can have a win multiplier attached to them of either 2x, 3x or 5x.

The multipliers are multiplicative of each other, but for this to occur they need to be different values, so in essence, you need at least 2 multiplier wilds for this to occur!

From the Game Rules,

Note: If more than one multiplier Wild of the same kind appears on the same win line, they will not be multiplicative of each other (i.e x5 Wild and x5 Wild will still only multiply the win by x5).

Free Spins Bonus Round

The free spins round is triggered by landing 3 Bonus Potion symbols on Reels 2,3 and 4.  A simple potion picking round is then played out which determines the starting number of free spins.

Any symbols contained in the potion brew are converted into Golden Wild symbols. and can also have multipliers assigned to them too.

During the free spins, the Wizard can pass by the reels to guarantee a Big Win.

Collecting 3 additional Potion symbols during Free Spins will award +2 extra Free Spins.

Secrets Uncovered Feature

Secrets of the Sorcerer Slot - Secrets Uncovered Feature

On any base game spin, you can trigger Secrets Uncovered awarding either a big win in the base game or triggering the Free Spins bonus round. This is a randomly activated base game feature.

Bonus Chance Feature

Every time you land 2 of the Bonus Potion symbols these will get collected in the Bonus Chance Meter. The more you collect the higher your chance of a winning bonus trigger from this feature, with a 1% increase for each double scatter collected.

If you completely fill the wheel you are guaranteed a Bonus trigger, this requires 100 collections!

Note – Scatters/Bonus symbols are no longer collected when the wheel is full and the game RTP will be lower, once it’s filled up completely use it immediately!

Paytable

The paytable displayed below shows the premium win symbol payouts based on a €5 stake size, factor in that no multipliers are being applied to these amounts in the paytable.

The highest paying symbol pays 20 x stake for 5 of a kind, but this can be Multiplied during the free spins by 2x, 3x, 5x, and even multiplicative multipliers too!
