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!
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
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.
