The Magical Wold of the Alchemists Lab
The Alchemists Lab looks like what one would expect to find in Merlin’s hollow – a plethora of magic potions, spell books and other instruments of alchemy. Except that the fictitious wizard in this case is based on the physician and hermetic philosopher, Dr Henricus Khunrath, who was also thought to possess the secret to alchemy. The contents of the Alchemists Lab make up the symbols for the reels and also include a gold coin and a magical gold ring.
The Alchemists Lab Bonus Feature Game
Although there is no traditional wild symbol in the Alchemists Lab, there is a scatter symbol in the form of a book of spells, which can present lucrative opportunities to the player.
Unlike scatters in other games, the spell book in Alchemists Lab has no coin value of its own. However, landing three of more book symbols on the reels activates the Alchemists Lab bonus feature game, which has an automatic bonus prize. Players must then select three of the liquid-filled flasks in the Alchemists Lab to create a potion that will hopefully turn to gold, although other liquid metals also payout.
The higher the player’s wager, the greater the prize value will be and Alchemists Lab bonus game wins are added to the win total.
