The online slot Alchymedes from Yggdrasil is an interesting game that uses medieval alchemy as a theme. This setting of the game is an alchemy lab where you can find symbols showing different flasks with potions. The music is somewhat dreamy and supports the theme nicely. What makes the game really interesting are the two features with the wild patterns and the multipliers and the levelling system that gives you some influence over how the game works. Another interesting fact is that the game is played with 30 pay-lines and winning combinations are possible in both directions.
The variance of the game is low, and you will get winning combinations regularly. However, these will be normally smaller in size, but you can get the occasional bigger win as well, especially at the end of the level when the level multiplier is applied to the last winning combination. The game lets you decide how it is played (to an extent), so it is a game that is worth being played for a while, as you can make decisions once you level up. The theoretical return to player is 96.1%, which is average for a slot machine.
You can also play Alchymedes mobile on different devices, as the slot is optimised for mobile casinos.

Levelling up, wild patterns and multipliers
You complete a level once you managed to make all 20 positions of the screen part of a winning combination. Once they are part of a win-line they will be marked gold.
Each new level gets a new wild pattern, which is shown on the left side. Once you get a wild symbol it will spread across the reels in the pattern, with the golden wild being the original wild on the screen. The wild can then substitute for all other symbols.
The multiplier is shown on the right-hand side and is applied to the last win of the level. It randomly increases throughout the game and resets with a new level.
Once you complete the level you will see the alchemist's scale which allows you to choose whether you want a stronger wild pattern with more wilds or a multiplier that increases faster. The changes are then applied to the next level.
You can also trigger the random bonus feature at the start of a new level and get either a better starting multiplier, a faster increasing multiplier, a coin win or a larger wild pattern.

How to play
The Alchymedes slot has 5 reels with 4 rows and 30 pay-lines that are counted in each direction. You can play the game with coin values from between 0.01 up to 2 £/$/€, which means that the minimum you have two spend in one round is 0.30 £/$/€ and the maximum is 60 £/$/€. You can also choose automatic play options, but once you level up you will need to make a decision. Remember, that this game is not suitable for just a spin here or there, to make the most of it you should play it for a while, at least until you level up.
