Golden Elixir Review
It's time to mix and stir potions over a cauldron for a special concoction in Half Pixel Studios' Golden Elixir. In collaboration with Microgaming and for their third release, Golden Elixir is a magic slot inspired by spellbooks and potions.
Playing on 5-reels with 243 ways to win, this medium volatility slot features stacked wilds and free spins determined by the numbers on the symbols. Players looking for a magical slot will need not look further.
As the slot opens up, it looks like this game is set in a medieval laboratory with cobbled flooring and open bricks in the walls. There are also shelves of books and potions in the distance surrounded by candlelight.
Closer to the screen is where you'll find the reels containing different spooky potions on the reels. Underneath the reels, there are creepy looking candles with skulls as well as special scrolls highlighting different potions.
The music and sound in this slot are conventional with a piano score mixed with bells to create something whimsical and magical on the reels.
Like most online slots, this game features up to 243 ways to win and only contains free spins. There is also the wild stack feature in this slot which works well with the free spins round.
At the bottom of the screen, you'll find the balance with the current bet. Further to the right is where you'll find the spin button and the bet level.
The win potential in this slot actually matches the rest of the game as it's nothing too special. The RTP is decent at 96.19% and there is a medium volatility level in this slot leading to a mixture of low and high volatility gameplay.
As for the maximum win, it's mediocre with a maximum win of 2,400x your stake which is ridiculous. This can be achieved through free spins with the stacked wilds.
Golden Elixir had the potential to be an amazing slot - but sadly just falls in the good section. The premise is interesting and not a hugely popular theme at the moment meaning that the developers had the chance to do something original.
Sadly, the low maximum win and the lack of features are holding the slot back from its true potential. The free spins round with the wild stacks in entertaining enough but we'd hope for something a little bigger or extra such as multipliers to make the mode worth it.
Despite this, Golden Elixir does have some fun moments with the feature. We recommend trying this slot out if you love magic slots - but be aware of the maximum win beforehand.
