- Uses hyperclusters to provide wins for adjacent symbols
- Lots of features which are given after a number of wins
- Free spins offer more wilds and enhance features
Alchemy Fortunes is a cluster pays slot from All41 Studios and Microgaming which offers a bunch of features, not at random like most games but after a certain number of wins so you can see roughly when you’ll get a new feature. I like that idea and it will be an attractive feature for many. To get a win you just need at least 5 matching symbols horizontally or vertically as opposed to on certain paylines. These base symbols are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Blue or Purple Gem
- Green or Amber Gem
- Blue Potion
- Purple Potion
- Green Potion
- Amber Potion
Those are just the base symbols, but there’s also a wild symbol that substitutes for all of the above symbols in a winning combination. They count as individual symbols when part of multiple hyper clusters. In the base game, 3-6 of these wild symbols can be added randomly on a non-winning spin.

Rolling Reels. This is basically a tumble of avalanche feature, removing all winning symbols from the screen to allow new ones to fill the gaps.
Magic Potion Meter. You’ll notice a meter as well as the reels on the screen, and this activates on every winning spin. Each symbol that’s part of the win will add to the meter, increasing it by 1. There are 5 levels to the meter, each one giving you a different feature as follows:
- Level 1 with 20 winning symbols. This activates a potion swap, whereby all potion bottle symbols are swapped with a randomly selected potion bottle.
- Level 2 with 40 winning symbols. This activates summon wilds, where 3-6 wild symbols are randomly added to the reels.
- Level 3 with 60 winning symbols. This activates gem crush, removing all gem symbols on the screen and replacing them with new, random symbols.
- Level 4 with 80 winning symbols. This triggers alchemy of wilds, whereby all marked wild symbol positions turn such symbols into wilds.
- Level 5 with 100 winning symbols. This triggers the free spins bonus.
Free Spins Bonus. This changes the features that occur at set wins, improving them. You have 5 free spins. Level 1 now turns all potion bottle symbols into the highest paying symbol. Level 2 adds 5 wild symbols randomly. Level 3 and 4 remain the same, and level 5 will retrigger the free spins. Furthermore, 5 wild symbols are added at the start of every spin.
Alchemy Fortunes slot from All41 Studios uses hyper clusters which is a trademarked feature that groups symbols together when adjacent horizontally or vertically with a minimum of 5 needed. I like how you can predict roughly when a feature will trigger based on the meter. I think all of the features are quite good, and they’re only enhanced during the free spins bonus. As the free spins give you lots more wilds, you can work your way back up the meter more quickly and get some enhanced features too. It’s a shame the maximum payout is only 1100x your stake as this will put some players off, but the RTP is impressive and I think it will still appeal to some.
