Whats not so hot?
We are big fans of fantasy themed slots, Novomatic’s Wizard’s Ring progressive jackpot slots delivers the goods in terms of bonus rounds, payouts and overall playability.
With 40 paylines, 5 reels, a free spins feature where 30 free spins can be won along with expanding wild wizard symbols, it’s as good as any we’ve seen. The graphics are old school, then again who cares especially if you have a shot at winning that progressive jackpot!
Wizard’s Ring offers players an average return to player percentage (RTP) of 95.8% and can be played from £$0.40 per spin on mobile phones and PC desktops at all Novomatic Casinos. Paying symbols that appear on the reels are cards from 9 to Ace, a quill and candles, wizards, magical rings, apprentices and princesses. The symbol that pays the biggest cash prize is the magical ring, 5 of them at the maximum bet pays 1,000 coins.
Players who play it for real cash can start spinning the reels from £.40 up to £80 per spin. Customization options makes the slots more convenient to play. High rollers can use the Auto Play button that spins the reels for a certain amount of times automatically, there’s a Max Bet button, coin denomination and audio setting.
The Wizard symbol is the wild which substitutes the other symbols on the reels to complete a winning combination except the scatter (magical ring).
Central to Wizard’s Ring is its free spins feature, it’s triggered when 3 or more magical ring scatters appear any position on the reels. Once the feature is played you’ll receive 15 free spins.
An extra 30 free spins can be won should another 3 scatters appear. If you fill all reels with the wizard you’ll win the progressive jackpot. Hit 4 scatters and you’ll win 30x your bet while 5 of them pays a hefty 12,000 coins or 300x your line bet!
During the free spins the Wizard symbol becomes sticky on the reels for 1 free spin-it replaces the other symbols and becomes an expanded symbol by covering an entire reel. The nice thing about the free spins mode is that the progressive jackpot can be won here when all 5 reels are covered with 5 expanded wizards (20 in total). It’s best to play the game at the maximum stake per spin to win the top cash prize.
Novomatic’s Wizard’s Ring is medium to high variance progressive jackpot slots where the biggest cash prizes are won during the free spins bonus feature. The free spins feature can be re-triggered offering 30 free spins in total. When the Wizard wild sticks to the reels payouts can be huge especially when the reels become laden with wizards (progressive jackpot is won).
