Alchymedes Slot Review – New from Yggdrasil
Rizk Casino continues to add further Yggdrasil online slots to their casino with the latest unusual offering titled Alchymedes, which uses a 5×4 reel layout with 30 fixed paylines that pay in both directions so 60 in total.
It’s worth noting though that currently the Alchymedes slot isn’t on offer for players from the UK or Germany.
If you are quick to check this slot out then Rizk Casino is running a special promotion from the 25th Jan 2017 with €2300 real cash prizes and loads of free spins up for grabs too.
Alchymedes Slot Base Gameplay
The Alchymedes slot is set in a dark themed alchemy lab, you get to play a crazed Alchemist mixing up potions in your lab, with a mix of wild spreading patterns and rising multipliers values that are displayed either side of the reels, as you progress through the levels of this slot you get to choose just how to mix your potions, with more spreading wilds or faster-growing multiplier values on offer.
The main focus of this slot is to fill up the coloured tiles on the reels by scoring wins in the game, one a win has been recorded the tile on the reel is marked golden also tracked with the potion meter on the left-hand side. Once all tiles have
Once all tiles have been marked you complete the level, awarded a multiplier win to the final winning combination and then move to weighing scale selection screen where you can alter the amount of spreading wild symbols on the reels or boost the final multiplier value on each level completion.
The objectives will be fairly easy to understand for players that are familiar with slots such as Gemix and Cloud Quest, with a similar mechanic on offer in this release, the main difference here is that there are no main bonus round features, although there are a few special additional bonuses that can be awarded between rounds to increase the potency of this slot.

Alchymedes Slot – Special Features
There is no main bonus for the Alchymedes Slot, on completing levels the player gets to choose how to mix their potions to create larger spreading wild patterns when the wild symbol lands on the reels, or to increase the rate at which the special multiplier value rises which is awarded on the final completion spin of the level.
- Spreading Wilds – A pattern is displayed showing how the wild symbols will spread over the reels (the red highlight indicates where the wilds will spread out from).
- Level Completion Multiplier – Can rise in value from 1x to 5x per spin, with a maximum final multiplier value of x100 applied to the final spin of the level.
Along with these 2 main slot features, there is also a randomly awarded bonus feature which can add further extras including a multiplier value that rises with each spin.
- 1-2 extra wilds added to the pattern
- x2-x3 starting multiplier values
- 100-2000 coins on level completion
- Multiplier value increases every spin
Alchymedes Slot Review
Alchymedes is certainly an interesting slot release from Yggdrasil, graphically it’s highly polished as we have come to expect and has some novel features with the potion mixing creating a wealth of different options for players to experiment with.
The main negative to this slot is that is no main bonus round to aim for, so there really isn’t a big objective to aim for, the level completion becomes slightly irrelevant with just further potion mixing options on offer and the chance of the extra random feature appearing.
That said it’s a slick highly polished medium variance slot, and if you are fan of titles such as Gemix and Cloud Quest then this certainly might appeal to you.
