Winning Wizards is a slot machine by Microgaming that has five reels and five pay lines (click here for the entire collection). The theme of the game is wizards, such as those from Dungeons & Dragons or Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. In addition to K, Q, J and 10 poker symbols, the symbol set includes a wizard, a mage’s staff, a spell book, a pouch and a magic bracelet.
Gameplay in Winning Wizards is rather straightforward. The coin size options are 0.25, 0.50, 1, 2 and 5, and you can cycle through those amounts using the plus and minus buttons at the bottom of the screen. The game allows just one coin per line, and clicking the Bet One button allows you to cycle through one to five active pay lines. Then click Spin to begin. A Bet Max button is also available for convenience.
Winning Wizards is one in a series of video slot machines that are intended to provide the speed and simplicity of a classic slot machine in a video format. In other words, it does not have any special features at all, including those we often take for granted, such as a wild symbol. Note that most of these games are available in a Golden Goose edition that adds a bonus game and other special features at the cost of a slightly lowered jackpot and less straightforward gameplay.
Graphics & Audio
The symbol set used for this game is fantastic. The mage’s staff is particularly impressive because the top of the staff is a taloned claw that is clutching a pulsating gemstone that actually pulsates. The rest of the graphics are rather plain and seem a bit long in the tooth by current standards. The audio is a bit obnoxious to say the least and feels more appropriate to 2001: A Space Odyssey than a fantasy theme. Nevertheless, there is a mute button.
The wizard is the jackpot symbol, and five on an active pay line results in a jackpot of 10,000 coins. That jackpot, which is only 8,000 coins in the Golden Goose edition, is worth $50,000 at the max bet. Additionally, since it is possible to hit the five-wizard combo on all active pay lines, the per-spin maximum jackpot is $250,000.
We really enjoy Microgaming’s streamlined video slot machines, and Winning Wizards is no exception. To get a good sense of the differences, try both the standard edition and the Golden Goose edition, both of which are available for play in a no-risk demo mode that uses dummy credits.
