Potion Factory Slots

Potion-FactoryMicrogaming gives us in Potion Factory an interesting wizard themed slot machine, with three weird looking characters on its reels, which show only the eyes, being covered by hats and clothes otherwise. These wizards create potions in the game, and the game has them in different variants, many times with poker card labels used for them. The idea that it’s a factory where the potions are made is visible, with various pipes and pieces of equipment being shown around the reels and in the background.

In Potion Factory, besides the cute design, you will discover 5 reels and a total of 40 bet lines on them. There are free spins, bonus games, scatters and wilds to take advantage of. The top prize only goes up to $250 though.

Features of Potion Factory

Among the features that you should be paying special attention to there is the nudge, wild symbols and a bonus icon which triggers its own set of features and free spins.

If you want The Nudge to be active, you will have to activate it and wager an additional amount just for it. This will make the 2nd and the 4th reels help you from time to time, by nudging into place symbols that can be part of combinations. It’s a good feature to have on your side, as it gives you the best combo possible, or the reels don’t move at all.

The wild symbol is the kind that will expand and cover an entire reel. Being a wild, it can obviously substitute for another symbol if it’s in the right place and the right time, but it doesn’t take the place of bonus icons.

Multigame and Multilevel Bonus Game

This particular feature requires that three bonus symbols are present, on the three reels where they can make that appearance. Those reels are the 1st, 3rd and 5th.


When this happens, you are taken to a new screen, where a wheel of fortune of sorts is shown. You can win an instant cash prize, free spins, or access to the X Formula feature.

Free Games Feature

The free spins you win can bring you between 5 and 8 rounds that you don’t have to pay for to play.

Wild symbols become sticky for the duration of the free spins, and they will stay in place until the feature is over. They also award payouts of up to 500x when they create combinations.

Additional levels exist in the free spins, which can give you even more rounds. While level 1 has 5 to 8 spins, level 2 has 8 to 11 and level 3 brings you 12 to 15 rounds.

X Formula Feature

You get a closer look at the X Formula feature if you trigger it in the bonus game, and once inside you get a chance to win prizes of up to 25x the total bet. You use the potion factory to get to that kind of payout.


You are asked to pick ingredients that will be used in the X Formula, and if you get it right you increase the prize. With the wrong ingredients, the value of the prize goes down.

Betting options and jackpots

The game has two parts that you can use, one obligatory, the other optional. The regular bet has 40 paylines with wagers of $0.50 or less on each one. That’s a $20 total bet. If you also activate The Nudge section, you double the total to $40.

The slot’s top payouts give you 500 times the line bet, but that’s only $250 at best. It’s probably the part about this game that disappoints the most.

Design and symbols

It’s a very cartoon like design that you’re getting in Potion Factory, but the theme isn’t exactly about wizards and spells either. It’s more about the three weird creatures that have a potion factory and which try to find the perfect formula. The symbols give you the three wizard creatures and the potions which they create. It’s an attractive game, but quite different from your usual slot machine with a wizard theme.


Symbols: Wild Potion (wild, 500 coins), Wooden House (bonus), PF Logo (500 coins), Yellow Wizard (300 coins), Green Wizard (200 coins), Blue Wizard (150 coins), Red Potion (100 coins), Green Potion (80 coins), Orange Potion (75 coins), Blue Potion (75 coins), Purple Potion (50 coins) and Yellow Potion (50 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

The game’s design and its features are strong enough reasons to play it, but when it comes to prizes, it’s as bad as it gets.

This Potion Factory slot is offered by all online casinos with Microgaming software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
