Path of the Wizard is a five-reel video slot running on the well-known Microgaming software platform that will transport players to the world of wizards, fairies and dragons.
Path of the Wizard is a well-designed video slot with a dark magical theme that can surprise players with huge wins. Path of the Wizard has been designed to serve up an entertaining fantasy magic theme that is centred around the powers of wizardry and witchcraft.
The symbols include a black knight, a mystical fairy, a horned Balrog-like troll and a cloaked sorcerer. Other than those character symbols, the reels are filled up with a series of generic playing cards icons like Nine, Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace.
Playing Path of the Wizard
Before you step into this world of witchcraft, you will have to set your bet.
Pressing “Coins”, a player can select the number of coins they want to wager.
Clicking on the “+/-” will modify the coin value ranges.
There are twenty-five paylines, and players can pick how many they want to activate with the “Lines” button.
“Spin” starts the reels spinning.
If a player wishes to spin on the highest possible wager press “Max Bet” and the game will begin.
To spin the reels multiple times uninterrupted, players should press the “Auto Play” button.
The game contains a wild mystery chest icon, that is the wild icon that helps players to create winning combinations by substituting all symbols except for the scatter. Any winnings earned with the help of a wild symbol are going to be doubled.
The Path of the Wizard logo symbol is the scatter symbol, and whenever at least two of these appear anywhere spread across the reels and lines of the game, players will earn scattered prizes.
Landing three or more scatter bonus icons will start the Path of the Wizard free spin feature where players will select an orb and reveal several picks to use in the next round.
Then select objects until a player reaches the number from their previous selection to reveal the number of free spins and multipliers a player will receive. This exciting feature can also be re-triggered.
As far as video slots games go, Path of the Wizard by Genesis Gaming is a fairly standard affair and nowhere near as enjoyable as other games by the developer. Path of the Wizard does feel like it could do more to unleash the full potential of its theme with better animations.
