The name Amazing Alchemist refers to a wonderful man who deals with alchemy—a medieval era chemistry-cum-philosophy field that aimed at converting specific metals into gemstones. Four of the Amazing Alchemist symbols (“Wild” illusion, Alchemist’s hand, spell book, and philosopher’s stone) require three, four, or five winning combinations; while four symbols (A, K, Q, and J) require three, four, or five winning combinations.
Amazing Alchemist Game Characteristics
Amazing Alchemist has a 5X4 grid, wherein the bottom row (called a “feature zone”) does not always spin. Thus, the regular spins use a 5X3 grid.

The background of the grid is shroud in a blue-and-purple magic effect, and the grid is hemmed in by a flowery silver frame. Amazing Alchemist has thirty fixed pay lines. There are ten symbols, win multipliers, eleven bet sizes, and the fixed odds range from X5 to X1000.
