This game might just cast a lucrative spell on you. Winning Wizards is a magic-themed, 5 pay line, 5 reel game from Microgaming with a fairy tale-like motif that will take you back to your more carefree childhood days. So, throw on your giant, pointy hat and roll up your huge wizard cloak sleeves as you sit down and try your luck at this fun slot.
There have been lots of wizard-themed characters out there in various channels of pop culture. Some are evil, others are good; some are young, others are old; some dabble in the dark arts, others practice magic that is inherently good. It is difficult to tell in which of these categories the white-bearded fellow with the starry cap this wizard belongs to. Nevertheless, all you should be worried about with this game is whether his sorcery can make you rich!
In a twist of irony, Winning Wizards could actually use a bit of magic to give it some spice or the update that it needs. The game has an inviting feel to it with attractive, old-school animation. Also somewhat rarely for a slot machine, it pays winning paylines both left to right and right to left. Apart from that it has no bonus features to speak of – a dubious rarity for 5 reel slot – and the background music is a dull, shrill sound that tires very quickly.
Start your bout of wizardry off by figuring out how much it is that you are willing to ante. Adjust the pay lines and number of coins per spin to set the bet at anywhere between $.25 and $25. Spin the reels by clicking the ‘spin’ button and enjoy the odd sounds that are played as they spin.
The single biggest prize that you can win in Winning Wizards is 10,000 credits. This occurs when you have five wizard icons come up on a pay line that is in play. The next highest grossing combinations are five wands and five spell books which win you 5,000 and 2,500 credits, respectively.
