Slot tester's review: Martin Anastasov

Dust off your favourite grimoire and try casting a magical spell that makes the reels of the Wizard Shop come back with a bang. It only took me a few spins to get into the game and a few minutes to get a load of the pretty graphics. In my opinion, this is an underrated Push Gaming production and I hope that my modest wizardry is going to shed some light on the game's potential.

Players are going to find a layout of five reels and six rows, which is pretty uncommon in the world of online slots, which gives me an even better reason for having played the game a number of times. That and the 50 paylines makes for interesting gameplay with a medium to high variance math model.

In other words, what appears to be a cute Wizard Shop is also an ivory tower owned by a master alchemist who can replicate his mirror-image in multiple locations for a chance to trigger bigger payouts. I like this feature because you never know how many wizards can post on the reels, but it isn't the only feature and that makes the game more amusing.

In addition to the extra features, the other key detail that grabbed my attention was the theoretical return to player (RTP) which is a whole, round 97% - another rarity that can make Wizard Shop stand apart from the plethora of slots with a layout of 3x5.

Theme and Graphics

The title says it all. The game takes the 'magic' and 'wizard' theme and runs with it to create an immersive gaming experience. Part of the gameplay is a coin-collecting feature that enables the player to shop around for boosters during the free spins bonus. That adds the interactive element which most slot games are missing and it looks pretty on the screen, as the game is taking place inside a wizard’s shop.

I have played few similarly-themed slots, especially iSoftBet's Merlin series, and I am impressed with the graphics of this particular game. I can't precisely say why. Perhaps it's the way they've drawn and coloured-in the wizard, maybe it's the dynamic visual effects that come with a number of events on the reels, but my overall impression is that the Wizard Shop is pretty unique.

As you play the game you can't avoid noticing the sound score which is paired with a fitting melody. Close-calls, winning outcomes and bonus events unleash a flurry of sound effects that are spot-on with the game's dynamic. If I have to compare this game to other Push Gaming productions, I can safely say it stands on its own.

Push Gaming has several games that have their twin siblings, such as Tiki Tumble and Blaze of Ra and Power Force Heroes and Power Force Villains, but this game is fully unique in many respects - unique graphics, unique math model and an RTP that is definitely higher than your average slot.

Extra Features

  • The wizard is a cheeky geezer, as you may find out soon enough because his symbol appears in two variants - yellow and purple. The latter is a standard paying symbol that can turn into an expanding wild symbol if it lands on the reels in a full-stack.
  • In the event, the game triggers the Wizard Wild feature, as the old alchemist assumes his yellow-robed guise, which causes all of his blue symbols to turn into wilds.
  • Wizard Shop tends to dole out multiple blue wizard symbols on the reels and more often than not these appear in stacks of three, four or more symbols. Each time there's been a full stack of wizards in my experience with the game, the result has been a pretty payout thanks to the added sets of wilds across the reel set.
  • The second wild is a standard one. It doesn't create stacks and only appears during the free spins bonus. Both the standard and the Wizard Wild can pay 0.2x, 1x, 4x and 15x your bet for two, three, four and five matching symbols.
  • I've found the base game to be quite exciting and the bonus feature even more so. This is thanks to the Wizard Shop feature that precedes the bonus. When you land three scatters you are invited to shop around for boosters during the free rounds, so all of the gold and silver coins that have randomly accumulated during the base game can be put to good use at that moment.
  • You can purchase three different boosters and add multiple levels of each or you can save your coins for the next bonus feature if you think you can earn a bigger coin and spend it towards a greater effect.
  • The Wizard Shop offers you to add up to 50 wild symbols for each level so that the game can allocate that many symbols across the free spins.
  • The Wizard Wild Multiplier does exactly that. Each level (per 100 gold coins) adds a 2x multiplier to the eventual winning outcomes. The final level is 10x your win, which is a rather solid boost but will set you back (or ease you forward) 500 gold coins.
  • The last item in the shoppe is the Scatter Prize symbol. This is basically a win multiplier that boosts your winning outcome by multiplying the amount by your full bet, whenever there is a treasure chest symbol in sight along with the win.

Bets and Payouts

I mentioned at the start that Wizard Shop is interactive and quite successful at that. The gold coins can come along with any of the standard symbols and over time they will accumulate, so when you are at the shop you can mix and match the boosters that you’d like to have during your free spins rounds.

In terms of the symbols' values, the wilds are definitely king. Both in the base game and bonus feature, players can land at least two wilds and gain a payout.

A notable detail about the paytable structure is that there are three symbol tiers with three kinds of symbols in each. As I expected, neither of these returns your bet for three matching symbols on a payline. That makes sense, as there are 50 paylines and multiple chances to land crisscrossing payouts along these.

The low and medium-paying symbols can pay between 0.2x and 0.6x for three of a kind, 0.4x and 1.6x for four of a kind and 1x and 5x your bet for wins consisting of five matching symbols. The hourglass, the grimoire and the wizard's symbols pay between 0.20x and 8x your bet.

Conclusion

Wizard Shop was released in 2017 and plays like a slot that'd be released in 2020. The range of wagers is between $0.25 and $100.00 and there are all of the accoutrements of a solid game, including autoplay option and turbo mode in the settings menu.

I've enjoyed the gameplay and I think it's one of the better games out there that's outside the 3x5 frame and pays across paylines instead of 'ways to win'.

I think the main reason why I stayed with the game comes down to the variance level. Medium to high plays across this layout and the set of feature that can materialize on it quite well.

Had the variance level been set too high only, the payouts would have been slimmer and medium-sized wins less frequent. But the opposite is at work here and I think that's worth exploring.

Overall rating:

4.3

I see life as a chance occurrence, like a one in a gazillion probability that there is a planet within the Goldilocks zone that can support life. Isn't this kind of a jackpot for humankind? Besides science and a good laugh, I like games of chance. I've played on more than 150 slots in the past three years and learned what they do and how they work. I may write a review now and then about some of the slots I come across on my igaming journey. Hopefully, some of the players out there are going to find my opinion useful. Keep it chancy, and best of luck!
