Enter the alchemist’s laboratory and play this Match-3 game for the chance to win a jackpot worth $100,000. Smash the test tubes on the 3x3 play grid to uncover nine microbe symbols – match three of them and you win a prize. You can find a step-by-step guide to playing The Alchemist below.
Just repeat these steps to keep playing. You can adjust your bet amount between games and your balance will automatically update every time you place a bet or win a prize.
The Auto Bet feature allows you to play a set number of games automatically. You can set Auto Bet to run for between 5 and 50 rounds, or you can set it up to stop when specific conditions are met. To use it, select the Auto Bet symbol (the gear icon next to the Buy Ticket button), set how many rounds you want it to run for, and then press play.
If you want to refine the Auto Bet settings further, select the plus symbol and adjust the following settings:
Auto Bet will stop when all of the rounds have elapsed, when you run out of funds, or when one of the conditions above has been met. You can pause Auto Bet at any time by selecting the pause button, or you can stop it by selecting the X icon in the Auto Bet box.
Winning The Alchemist is simple: just smash the test tubes and reveal three identical microbe symbols. The order in which you reveal the symbols and their placement on the 3x3 play grid does not matter. You win if any three of the nine symbols are the same.
Each microbe is associated with its own prize multiplier and there are 11 different ones in total. Bet $10 and hit the x10,000 multiplier to win the huge $10,000 jackpot.
When you win, the three matching symbols will be highlighted in the play grid and a message will appear on screen telling you how much you have won – the prize amount will also be shown in the Win box. You’ll also see that the alchemist’s experiment has been a success and his lab will come to life. If you don’t win anything, a ‘Try Again’ message will pop up and you’ll see the alchemist suffer a bit of a mishap.
There are 11 different prize levels in The Alchemist and each has its own prize multiplier. Your win amount is equal to your bet multiplied by the relevant value. The table below shows all the prize levels, the multipliers for each, and how much you would win with the maximum $10 bet. You can access the payout table in the game by selecting the goblet icon from the menu or the arrow above the alchemist’s head.
