Potion Commotion by NextGen Gaming
Potion Commotion is a simple mobile slot with quite a few little extra details. The object of this game is to mix a whole bunch of different potions, and hopefully turn them into gold. This in medieval times was called alchemy, and has fascinated people ever since. No one has ever gotten it right in real life though, but maybe in this slot you can. Potion Commotion plays out over five reels and up to twenty five paylines.
The slot has been beautifully rendered for mobile devices, and looks as good on your smart phone as it does on your tablet. This is a medium variance slot, and can be played by all sorts of players wishing to make gold. There are nine staking option from 0.01 coins all the way up to 2 coins per line, which means a minimum bet of 0.01 coins and a maximum bet of 40 coins. The free spins happen often, but remember the more you wager the more likely you are to hit them.
The slot is set in a dusty and dark alchemist’s workshop. There are many little potion vials to be seen, all beautiful and ornate. The graphics in Potion Commotion are very nicely done, very modern and sharp.
Should you be using an HD screen, they really do pop against the black background. The soundtrack isn’t anything mind blowing, but it does fade into the background without driving you insane which is a good thing. Balance, Total Bet and Win are at the top of your screen above the reels, with a little text line below the reels to keep you informed of what is happening on them. The Spin button is a large green one just next to the text line with a Play sign on it.
Alchemical Potion Symbols
The base symbols in Potion Commotion are not what you would expect. These are the plain potion vials, simply with coloured liquid inside them. Three yellow or green potions will win you five times your stake, whist five will win you 100 times your stake. Blue and Orange are next up with 150 times your stake for five of them, and pink and red can go up to 200 times your stake.
The higher paying symbols are the suites from a deck of cards, but really nicely done to suit the theme. They are little potion vials too, but with a different coloured liquid inside and the suites sign; Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs or Spades; floating around in the liquid. Interesting that NextGen has switched this around. Clubs and Spades are the lowest of these with up to 400 times your stake, then Diamonds at 700 times, and lastly Hearts with a pretty decent 1500 times your stake.
Potion Commotion Special Features
Potion Commotion is all about the free spins. Scatter symbols will trigger this, with three of them giving you 10 free games, four of them 15 free games, and five of them 20 free games. They will also award you with a scatter bonus of between 2 and 100 times your stake depending on how many of them you have found. The free spins in Potion Commotion happen often, and are retriggered often, leading to some exciting times. There are also wild symbols that take the place of all other symbols on the reels except for the scatters.
