Balthazar’s Wild Emporium
OpenBet may not be the biggest developer of online slot machine games, but their Balthazar’s Wild Emporium slot machine has attracted a lot of heat. This casino game has become one of their most played titles, and it contains a mystical and spellbinding theme. Balthazar’s Wild Emporium (as its name suggests) is not short on features, either. The slot offers up 20 paylines over its 5 reels, although players kind of get a 2-for-1 deal with paylines, with the slot costing just 10p per spin at its cheapest, and £500 per spin at its costliest. Unfortunately, the non-progressive jackpot is a little on the light side, at just 25x your total stake. RTP rates range from a very low 88.19% up to a more modest 94.02%.
You won’t be able to miss the wild symbol in this slot. It appears as a purple orb with “wild” written inside it. This symbol can replace all other icons in the game, save for other coloured bonus symbols.
A total of 5 randomly triggered features can appear in the base game. These include added wilds or colossal wilds, a symbol shuffle feature, a guaranteed win via the Dr Burns feature, a free re-spin with a guaranteed win, and the chance for the reels to rewind unveiling a new potion bonus.
Potion symbols come in yellow, blue or purple colours, and landing at least two matching colour potion symbols on the first and second reels will offer players a bonus.
Once they’ve landed two identical symbols on the first and second reels, players will be able to take the free spin offer which appears to them or gamble in hope of landing something better. In total, it may be possible to land as many as 1,000 spins via these different coloured potions.
Balthazar’s Wild Emporium certainly has enough quality to be entertaining for most players. This slot announces OpenBet’s arrival into the big-time, and if you’re a lover of wilds and random bonuses, there’s plenty to be pleased about here.
