Golden Elixir is a medium volatility pokie that plays out in the highly volatile environment of a wizard’s laboratory, a most suitable setting for casino games. The action starts by placing a bet, with options available ranging from 0.20 credits to a maximum of 100 credits per spin. That means there are options available for all kinds of players, according to their budgets, recreational players and moderate high rollers alike. Golden Elixir and other Spin Casino games may be played in demo mode to allow for some practice, although no cash rewards can be won in this format.
Once you've selected your stake, you can fully join in the mysterious activities in the bizarre stone chamber with its 5x3 grid. Simply press the spin button to get going. Wizarding artefacts abound: spell books, skulls and atmospheric candles, with a giant cauldron seething away behind the reels. Your role is to activate each of the magic potions (if you can!) to access the rewards that may await. Combining three or more matching symbols across the reels from the left onwards is where your success begins. The biggest prize out of 243 possible winning opportunities is valued at 2,400x your stake.
What starts out fairly calmly with the lower value card royal symbol values of 10, J, Q, K and A steadily increases in intrigue with the higher value blue, green, red and golden elixirs positively glowing with eerie potential. The wild symbol in this game is represented by the letter W (for Wizard?), able to take the place of any regular symbol. Should the wild land on 2, 3 or 4, they're stacked three high. “Free Spins” are scatter symbols, revealing the volume of free spins awarded (2, 3 or 5). Getting the hang of Golden Elixir doesn't take long, so you can rapidly get promoted from being sorcerer's apprentice at Spin Casino.
The pace picks up as you go along in Golden Elixir as soon as the special features are ignited. With Enchanted Wild Stacks, one of the middle reels will start to glow to show that there's magic afoot and something incredible is about to take place. The reel will be filled with a stack of three wilds to combine with potions on the reels on either side. Enchanted Wild Stacks activates randomly during the base game, but they are triggered during every free spin. This makes the free spins bonus round an important feature of the game. To get there, land three scatter symbols for six to 15 spins. It’s good to know that this feature recurs quite frequently in Golden Elixir.
