Path of the Wizard Slot

General Overview

Path of the Wizard is a Genesis Gaming powered 25-line and 5-reel video slot. The game’s themed on magic – dark magic. This means dragons, “dark” fairies, some sort of knights and the wizard himself is part of the game. The game certainly looks interesting and with its higher variance there’s a lot to look forward to. The game was launched some time ago with two other slots – Taboo Spell and Gothic – and is available to try at Microgaming’s Quickfire platform. Let’s see how flexible the game is when it comes to coinage.

Features and Bets

Visually Path of the Wizard uses lots of bloody red colour and dramatic music to create the right atmosphere. The user-interface should be familiar to many and it allows for lots of adjustments. For instance, lines can be switched off one by one, whereas each one of them accepts up to 10 coins. They in turn can be valued from .01 up to .10 credits each for the maximum bet of 25 credits per spin.

Auto Play, QuickSpin, Display Options and other useful settings are readily available too.

Symbols and Bonuses

The highest paying symbol among the base icons is the Wizard that pays up to 2,500 coins for 5 in view, which isn’t bad, especially with what you’re about to find out next. For instance, Wilds are also part of Path of the Wizard and they double all wins that they complete.

But the most special of them all is probably the Scatter in the form of the game Logo. With three on the screen (on reels 1, 3 and 5) you trigger Path of the Wizard Free Spins. But before you get to them there’s one additional round that you have to complete. It all starts with 3 Orbs that you choose from to reveal your picks. Maximum should be somewhere around 6 picks.

The next screen takes you to the pick’n win feature where you get to choose among the crests to reveal your number of spins and multiplier that will be added to the default 3 spins and multiplier of 2.

The bonus seems to trigger relatively often but you can easily end up winning practically nothing from it, so this sort of balances it off a bit. Because of that winning potential is also big. Practice play showed that 100x stake wins are possible and happen every once in a while.

Summary

Path of the Wizard is a magical 25-line video slot from Genesis Gaming that’s readily available at Microgaming’s Quickfire platform at many select online casinos. Enjoy the game’s frequent Free Spins bonus with multipliers that you get to choose blindly.
