The world of wizards and magic is often a good fit with the fantasy elements of online casino gaming, and well-known games developer Eyecon has produced another example of the best of the genre, with an update of their original wizard-themed title, White Wizard Deluxe.
White Wizard Deluxe is another successful online slots game from the impressive Eyecon stable. This games developer began as a small company focused primarily on video games, back in the late 1990s, but they soon moved their attention to the online casino gaming world, and they haven’t looked back. Based in Australia and the Channel Islands, Eyecon games have proven to be popular with slots fans in many countries and the company now has a global reach.
This game takes many of the features that made White Wizard such a success and builds on them by giving players more ways to win. There is an impressive total of 100 paylines on this slot game, which weighs in at the higher end of the scale when it comes to payline numbers. The game is played on a five-reel layout, and it features a host of bonuses and options, although it has a relatively high minimum stake of $/€/£1 and a maximum of $/€/£50.
Eyecon has stuck with the design that proved so popular in the first game. The layout looks similar, down to the bright, attractive colours. This version uses card values down to 9 rather than J, and there is also a number of higher value symbols, including a new blue orb tile that pays out a prize of five times your stake. You will also find a unicorn and an ice lantern appearing on the reels, both of which offer bigger payouts and the ultimate prize symbol, the bubbling cauldron. Land five of these high-value symbols and you can win a payout of x30.
As with the original game, the White Wizard represents the Wild. Whenever the wizard symbol appears on the odd-numbered reels, his tile will expand to fill the entire wheel, and all successful reel combinations that include a Wild will get a x3 boost.
There is also a handy blue dragon representing the Scatter, and if you can bring up 3, 4 or 5 of these symbols, you will register a payout of 5, 15 or 300 times your stake. The blue dragon symbol will also trigger a user-friendly Free Games feature, which gives the player up to 25 Free Spins, with the potential to win 400 Free Spins if you land more dragons during the Free Games phase.
Eyecon has clearly decided that what wasn’t broke, didn’t need fixing, but there are some useful tweaks in this edition of the game that make it even more attractive, including the increased paylines. Above all, the RTP of 95.5% is a significant improvement on the last game’s sub-95 figure and helps to make this an interesting and worthwhile reboot of a popular slots title.
