Secrets of the Sorcerer Features

The main feature in Secrets of the Sorcerer has to be the free spins round which can be triggered by landing 3 bonus potion symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. As soon as this starts, you decide on which potion you would like to choose for a bonus during the free spins round.

All the symbols revealed through the free spins bonus will be displayed as gold and act as a wild in the slot. If you manage to roll an additional 3 potions during free spins, then you'll win 2 extra free spins.

Aside from the free spins, you have the wilds which can replace any symbols except the bonus potion. During the free spins round, you can have wilds with multipliers attached starting at x2 and climbing up to x5.

At any time during base game spins, you can trigger the Secrets Uncovered feature which gives a big win or the free games bonus.

For non-UK players, you will be able to experience the Bonus Chance which adds up by landing 2 bonus symbols. You can trigger this feature and the wheel at any time to trigger the bonus but it costs x1 for each spin.

Wilds

These aren't your average wilds as they not only substitute all other symbols (except the potion scatter) but during free spins, they can have a multiplier ranging from x2 to x5.

Secrets of the Sorcerer Review

Once upon a time, there was a powerful alchemist that was the strongest in the land. He could often face anything that came his way - that was until he noticed a ferocious dragon hanging around his castle. That's where you come in to try and help him slay the dragon and protect his lair - he'll reward you handsomely for helping him out.

Developed by iSoftBet, this magic and retro hybrid slot plays on 5-reels with 25 paylines and features 8-bit graphics to simulate an old videogame. Featuring free spins and multipliers, Secrets of the Sorcerer has the magic to help you overcome the dragon and be rewarded for it.

Design

The background of the slot is a medieval castle that is obviously the alchemist's lair and is styled in an 8-bit fashion. The sprites of the symbols on the reels are designed in an 8-bit style as well which immediately draws similarities to older videogames such as the original Final Fantasy or Chrono Trigger. These include the alchemist himself along with the dragon and a few items from the alchemist which fit in well with the 8-bit style.

Thankfully, the music is as expected with an electronic track that feels like the end boss music in an RPG as it builds up suspense. The electric synth tune sounds familiar to Dragon Quest and Ys Books I & II. Let's just say, that if you love old fashioned videogames, then you'll enjoy this slot.

Gameplay

Despite having a retro style, Secrets of the Sorcerer is actually pretty modern when it comes to features with free spins and multipliers. The overall gameplay is uncomplicated and easy to follow with only 25 paylines to follow.

In terms of the menus, you can find everything around the slot with the spin button, bet level and autospin being available to the right of the screen. If you jump to the left, you'll find further menus such as sound and paylines.

Win Potential

Secrets of the Sorcerer is a high volatility slot with a mediocre RTP of 95.96%. Whilst this RTP is just below the average, it's unacceptable for a modern online slot unless there's a jackpot attached - which there is not. As for the maximum payout, you can expect wins of 5,000x your stake - which is incredibly disappointing for a high volatility slot especially with a maximum bet of 25.00.

Our Verdict

On the surface, Secrets of the Sorcerer is excellent with its graphics and decent features that manage to deliver just what you want. The big problem comes with the win potential with the meagre RTP and low maximum payout.

This is definitely a visual slot with fun mechanics, but ultimately the payout just isn't there. If you want to experience the retro videogame feeling, then definitely give this slot a spin. For those of you wanting a better and bigger payout, try out Pixel Samurai instead for a 50,000x your stake.
