Potion Commotion is an online slot game by software developer NextGen Gaming, and this offering is all about different colored liquids in oddly shaped bottles. There are green potions, yellow potions, red and blue potions, and even pink ones. You have potions with the four playing card suits floating around in them, too. The graphics aren’t too fancy in this game, although they’re still pretty decent, but if you’re expecting flashy 3D visuals with cool animated features you’d best look elsewhere. The backdrop in Potion Commotion displays what appears to be an alchemist’s basement. There are stacks of old books standing on the shelves and candles add extra light where the lamps don’t reach – and of course there are even more potions everywhere you look.
Now as for the game’s layout, it features the common 5 reels and 3 rows, and this grid comes with a total number of 20 paylines. The paylines are not fixed which means you are free to play with a lesser number of paylines if you’d prefer, and in fact, the game will allow you to lower the number to just a single payline. This makes for a very comfortable betting range suitable for both penny players and high rollers alike. The minimum bet is only 1p per spin, whereas the maximum amount you can stake is £200 per single spin.
Where to Play
The Wild symbol is the game’s most lucrative symbol, with the help of the Wild you can potentially cash in up to a whopping 5,000 coins. It can land on any of the five reels in any position, and when it does, it will be able to replace any of the other symbols on the reels to help complete winning combos. Of course, this does not apply to the game’s Scatter icon, which the Wild cannot substitute for.
The Scatter is nowhere near as high in value as the Wild, but the Scatter will also be able to appear in any position on the reels. In addition to that, it will be responsible for triggering this title’s single bonus game – the Freespins Feature. More precisely, you will have to land at least 3 Scatter symbols at the same time in order to activate this feature. Once activated, you will receive a number of free spins depending on the number of triggering Scatters.
So, 3 Scatter icons will award you the minimum of 10 free spins; if you land 4 of these symbols then you will get a total of 15 free spins; finally, 5 Scatter icons will grant you the maximum number of 20 free spins. What’s more, all of the prizes you win during this bonus round will be subject to a 3x multiplier, and if that weren’t enough you can even benefit from more free spins by retriggering the feature. Thus, you can potentially gain up to 40 free spins by landing another 3 or more Scatters simultaneously.
Potion Commotion is very simple, yet fairly entertaining nonetheless. There’s nothing special about the visuals and there’s certainly nothing unique about gameplay; however, that multiplier during the Freespins can make for some fairly attractive wins.
