BetSoft is pretty good about creating their characters with back stories instead of just relying on existing brands. Alkemor’s Tower is a good example of this concept as you follow the wizard Alkemor through a bit of a miniature adventure in his tower.
This game has a high hit-rate and a lot of great 3D graphics with the inside of a tower in the background. It’s a very high-quality game that shows off the quality of graphics that BetSoft can pull off.
The Alkemor’s Tower slot has a Return to Player payout percentage of 94.96%, well below average in our opinion.
Alkemor’s Tower format and layout
Alkemor’s Tower uses a 243-ways format across five reels with three rows. Bet sizes are based on sets of 30 coins.
The minimum coin value is €/$ 0.02, so when you’re playing with 30 coins, you’ll get in on the action at €0.60 per spin. You can run the coins up to €/$1 a piece, and with the ability to bet as many as 150 coins per spin, you’re getting a betting range that runs up to €/$ 150 for each turn.
The most basic symbols are Alkemor himself, who pays 350x for five in a row. You’ll get 200x for five crystals or 150x for five of the golden medallions. The golden ring with a blue gem gets you a 100x payout, and a bag of gems earns 75x.
The mushroom in a pot gets you a 50x win, and the scroll pays 30x. You can also pick up 25x for five of the scale. These pay left-to-right only.
There are spell books that show up on the first two reels, and these are the keys to all of the features in this game. Two spellbooks and an elemental symbol of fire, water, wind or earth will get you a feature based on casting a spell of that particular elemental. You can earn wilds, re-spins, cascading wins and rearranged symbols for big payouts.
Extra Levels with Alkemor’s Tower
Two spell books with a special spell book on the third reel will take you to one of the two extra levels. If the special spell book is the nature book, you’ll be taken to the extra floor. Extra symbols are added to the reels for enhanced payouts, and you’ll get up to 15 free spins on this floor.
The same sort of thing happens for the celestial book that takes you to the celestial floor with extra features as well. Overall, these extra levels are a pretty cool addition to the game, and they provide a really good amount of value that players will love.
What we think of Alkemor’s Tower
Alkemor’s Tower was released in 2015 and is part of a collection of older Betsoft slots. Although the RTP is below average the overall gameplay is fun. There’s a lucrative free spins bonus which can bank you a maximum payout of 1.500x your wager.
The 243 win ways makes it relatively easy to score a winning combination. The game looks stunning and Betsoft have converted the game from flash to HTML5 so it’s also accessible with a mobile device. Other slots of interest might be Astro Magic and Scrolls of Ra, both developed by iSoftBet.
