Elixir Slot from Everi Gaming / Multimedia Games
The theme of this detailed and colorful live casino slot is Alchemy – the ancient art of turning base metals into gold.
While this feat was never achieved in real life, on the reels of this 5-reel slot special features will regularly spread gold over the reels.
In addition to excellent graphics and smooth Everi powered game play, you’ll get a free spins round, stacked wilds and a separate quick pick game on the reels.
How to Win on the Elixir Slot
Like most Multimedia slot machine games, there are a full 50 win-lines crossing the 5 reels and 4 rows of symbols. This makes wins fairly frequent, though most of them will naturally be on the smaller side. To get the best wins you need to see some wilds connecting the different symbols and enabling several win lines to pay at once. Fortunately, these symbols are stacked on the reels. This makes it possible to cover all 4 rows at once. If you are lucky enough to get more than one reel covered in this way, then it is possible to trigger all 50 win lines at once.
As well as enabling more wins, those wilds (which are red and fiery, with the word ‘wild’ across them) are the biggest paying symbol. Five on a line will get you a generous 1000 coins, with 200 for 4 and 50 for just 3. Gold comes next on the list at 400 coins for 5, with silver and copper not too far behind at 300 and 250 respectively. Lead and iron complete the metals, and the playing card signs complete the winning symbols.
There are 3 more symbols you’ll find on the reels, all of these are connected to the different bonus games.
Turn Metal into Gold with the Elixir Bonus Games
There are bright bonus symbols with what could be an ornately decorated flask underneath which provide instant wins. If you get 3 of these on the reels, the game will pause and the symbols will grow. You are invited to pick one by tapping it. This will reveal either a cash prize (up to 10x your total bet) or it will get you to the free spins game.
That free spins game can also be triggered by hitting 3 of the free spin symbols. You’ll see a small explosion of gold, and the reels will melt away to reveal a stunning graphic of a dark castle. A sign now appears announcing that you win 5 free spins with a special wild locked 5th reel. You then zoom in through a window of the castle and see the alchemist’s elixirs – before the reels appear with a purple jewel on the final reel.
This has a very special effect after every spin. All of the base metals which land on the reels are turned one-by-one into gold. If you are lucky enough to hit a couple of wild symbols (or even a completely wild reel) in a spin with a lot of metal symbols, you can easily find yourself with multiple gold wins each spin. The graphic where a wisp of smoke turns the metals to gold is very good.
Design and Setup of Elixir
I can only describe the overall design as superb. While you are playing the main game there is a silhouette of a dark castle behind the reels which comes into view when you spin. During the free spins game, this view changes to the colored potions of the alchemist’s lab. The symbols on the reels are detailed and beautifully drawn, even the playing card symbols have a lot of small touches – though the metals and larger ‘Elixir’ wild symbol are best of all. Animations on the reels are good, with the sequence between the main and bonus game almost worth playing for alone!
This slot machine uses the regular 50 lines that Everi favor. You can bet from 1c per line, with 250 credits the maximum bet.
Without a doubt one of the better slots in the Everi live casino range. The graphics and animations are a real level above most slots, and the game play is smooth and solid. I like the balance in the game play – this is not an overly fancy slot, but has enough going on to keep you engaged while you enjoy the overall spectacle. The highlight is certainly the free spins bonus game – where all of the regular metal symbols turn to gold.
