Winning Wizards Slots

Winning-WizardsA game which deals with magic and wizards, Winning Wizards is a slot machine offered by Microgaming, with a design that feels a bit too old unfortunately, with only a couple of paylines despite the 5 reel layout. There are a few things that seem to recommend this slot machine to players that generally go with titles that are considered classics. The limited number of lines would be one reason, while the lack of features would be another.

This is a game that doesn’t try to offer too much. On the same 5 reels that other games use to offer up to 100 lines, Winning Wizards only has 5 lines. There are no major features, with the prizes going up to $50,000, which is not too bad actually.

Features of Winning Wizards

The game doesn’t seem to have any kind of features to offer their players. There are no wilds or scatters mentioned by the paytable, and I didn’t find any other bonus features while I was playing it. It seems that the developers tried to create a modern slot machine that is as close to the classic experience as possible. A low number of lines, 5 in this case, means that you will not get paid too often, but at least the top prizes are on the high side when they do trigger.

There is one thing about the way the game plays that is better than in other slots though. While most games will need the symbols to be arranged on paylines starting from the leftmost reel, in Winning Wizards this can happen starting from the rightmost reel as well. This improves the number of combinations which can form on the small number of lines, but not enough to make it an exciting choice.

Betting options and jackpots

The betting range in Winning Wizards is between $0.25 and $25. The minimum amount is the smaller line bet, while the biggest one uses five coins of $5 each one. Each payline accepts only one coin, so if you reduce the number of coins, you also have fewer lines.

The game offers good rewards, which is understandable since it doesn’t have features of any kind. You can win 10,000 coins, their maximum total value being $50,000.

Design and symbols

The theme is quite clear, related to magic just like the title of the slot mentions. The symbols are part poker cards which use letters that look like they were taken from handwritten books, part objects which are related to magic and to the wizard. You will find potion images, a magic staff, spell books and the wizard himself. It’s not the most exciting game you will ever see, but it’s good enough for a 5 line slot machine.


Symbols: Wizard (10,000 coins), Magic Staff (5,000 coins), Spell Book (2,500 coins), Potion (1,500 coins), Bracelet (1,000 coins), King (500 coins), Queen (400 coins), Jack (200 coins) and 10 (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

The game is worth pursuing if you’re looking for big rewards, and you don’t care about graphics, having lots of paylines or features to keep you busy.

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