Wizard’s Ring is a 5 reel, 40 payline progressive jackpot slot which is powered by Novomatic. Playable on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 40p to £80 per spin, you are taken to a world where wizards and wise scholars show off their unlimited power.

Visually, Wizard’s Ring is what you’d expect from a Novomatic title – symbols on the reels include regular playing cards (A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9) as well as candles and quill, princesses, apprentices, hooded wizards and magical rings. The latter is the wild symbol and replaces all symbols except the scatter – it’s also the highest value symbol giving you 1,000 coins for 5 on a payline.

The magical ring is the scatter symbol with 3 or more anywhere in view triggering the Free Games feature – 3 will give you 3 times your stake whilst 4 will gives you 30 times your stake. If you manage to get 5, expect a payout of 300 times your stake (or 12,000 coins)!

Once you’ve triggered the feature, you will receive 15 free spins – if you get 3 or more scatters on a free spin, you will receive another 15 free spins taking your total to 30. Look out for the Wizard symbol as these will be held/sticky on their positions for the duration of 1 free spin – they will also expand to cover the entire reel and substitute for all symbols (except the scatter).

During the Free Games feature, you can also land the progressive jackpot – this is done by covering the entire reel set (all 5 reels) with wizards (it’s 20 wizards or 5 expanded big wizards). If playing at the maximum stake, you’ll win the full jackpot – if playing at lower stakes, the corresponding share will be awarded to you.

Wizard’s Ring is a standard Novomatic offering with simple graphics and a high value bonus feature. The key to winning big is obviously via the Free Games feature where you can get up to 30 free spins with sticky Wizard symbols – if you’re really lucky, you’ll fill the reels with wizards to award you the progressive jackpot.

Variance wise, Wizard’s Ring is medium to high variance and is another welcome addition to the ever-growing Novomatic portfolio – if you like wizards, WMS’ Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers is recommended.
