If you’re on the lookout for Aristocrat’s White Wizard slot, this isn’t it. In fact, chances are you will only find that version of White Wizard if you head out to a real life casino. Instead, what we’re looking at here is the Virtue Fusion version of White Wizard, which is a 25-pay-line five-reel slot you can indeed play online right now. Joining an ever-growing arsenal of online slots with a theme of magical, mystery and wizardry, White Wizard clearly has the likes of Merlin’s Millions in its sights…albeit with slightly less legendary jackpots!
In a visual sense, it’s right up there with the best of them. As you’d expect, it’s a tale of wall-to-wall unicorns, cauldrons, spells books and scepters, not to mention a liberal scattering of playing card values. And let’s not overlook the power of the pot-bellied blue dragon either – he’s one guy you’ll be hoping you see a lot of while hanging out with the whiz!
Once slight bug-bear as far as we were concerned, we really cannot work out why the folks behind White Wizard decided to go to such an overly complicated interface. It’s not like it’s difficult to work out, but it just looks, feels and is a bit more awkward than it needs to be. Placing your chosen wager is a slightly complicated affair which involves opening menus and the appearance of various popups, which although pretty are not in any way necessary. We prefer the simple point and click up and down arrows approach to things, but that’s just us!
Payout & bonus rounds
The cauldron represents both the highest paying symbol and also one of the lowest, which is slightly unusual though undoubtedly interesting. If you manage to land two cauldrons, spell books, unicorns or scepters on an active bet line, you’re in for a 2X payout. However, if you manage to cast a lucky spell over things and hit five cauldrons in a row, you’ll be taking home 3,000X your bet.
As for the White Wizard himself, make his acquaintance and he’ll serve as the wild symbol for you, substituting for every other symbol with the exception of the blue dragon. On the downside, he’s a little on the shy side…he’s confined to the first, third and fifth reels only. And then there’s the chubby dragon we mentioned earlier, who in White Wizard represents the scatter symbol. Land five and you’ll be rewarded with 25 free spins, four will net you 20 free spins and three is good for a generous 15 free spins.
Every time you win a prize, you will have the option to go for the ‘double or nothing’ gamble, which is quite painfully tempting. If you keep getting it right with your gambling, however, you can re-double your winnings up to a maximum five times over, or until your win hits 32,000 coins.
On the whole therefore, we reckon White Wizard is a solid online slot with both style and substance in equally heavy measures. Sure, it’s old and perhaps isn’t quite as polished as some of its newer rivals, but when it comes to the action on offer, it really doesn’t put a foot wrong.
