This is quite a simple slot game from Novomatic but it does have a jackpot which you can win! It’s a very typical-style video slot from this developer. There are 5 reels and 4 rows, so 20 positions overall. There are 40 paylines in total in Wizard’s Ring but you don’t have to bet on all of them if you don’t want to. You can choose how many you want to activate, the minimum number being 1 and the minimum bet per line is 0.01. Wizards have captivated the imaginations of people for generations. Some of the most famous wizards in history are: the Wizard of Oz, Gandalf, Harry Potter, Merlin and Gargamel! In this game, the Novomatic wizard is most powerful of all and he will help you win the jackpot. This wizard is obviously not a modern one, as you can tell by the symbols in the slot. There are candles along with a feather quill, ink and parchment. The reels are blocking the view to the wizard’s secret study. It’s perhaps nestled deep within the walls of a medieval castle. The only downside to Wizard’s Ring is the RTP of 94%. This doesn’t really matter if you win the jackpot, however there are some higher paying slot games from Novomatic. Several other games from Novomatic are quite similar to this magical game. See also: Wizard, Alchemist’s Secret, Win Wizard and Elven Princess.
Of course, playing this game at the Novomatic casino the wizard does show up on the reels in the form of a symbol. However, he isn’t the only symbol on these magical reels! He’s joined by a whole host of other symbols. Some of them are characters, some are objects and the rest are high-value cards. 9, 10, Jack and Queen give the smallest payouts. The King and the Ace give bigger payouts. Then, in ascending order of value, there’s also: the candelabra; the quill, ink and parchment; the medieval man; the medieval maiden, the wizard and the wizard’s ring. These last two symbols are extra special but the rest of the symbols are rather ordinary! They wouldn’t make it into wizard school but they payout when it counts! The card symbols, the candelabra and the quill, ink and parchment are a class of their own. To get a win from these symbols, you need at least three of a kind to land on a payline. For the people (the maiden, the man and the wizard), you can get a win with two of a kind (or more). The paylines in Wizard’s Ring pay one way only, which means payouts will be awarded for matching combinations that land from the left (reel 1) and consecutively thereon.
The Wizard can pay like an ordinary symbol but he can also use his powers to help you! When you spin some matching symbols but they are missing one, the wizard will be able to step in and help you get the win! If he’s in the right place, he can act as a replacement for any symbol. His powers only limit him so that he can’t fill in for the Scatter symbol. The Scatter symbol at the Wizards’s Ring is the wizard’s ring and this is an absolute gem! 3, 4 or 5 of these Scatter symbols will start 15 Free Games if they land in a single spin. They also give out bigger wins than any other symbol in the game. When you’re playing the Free Games, you will have the chance to win the jackpot! You can win the whole jackpot when you play on maximum bet. When you are playing the game with a smaller bet, you’ll win a percentage of the jackpot relative to your bet. The wizard will be back to use his powers to help you get wins and get the jackpot. His powers get even stronger during these free games. When he lands, not only does he substitute if he can, but he also expands to fill the whole reel he lands on. Even better, he stays there for the remainder of the free games! If you’re lucky enough to land a wizard on every reel during the free games and he expands to cover all 20 positions (all 5 reels) – the jackpot will be all yours! How’s that for a bit of Novomatic magic?
