Graphics and Themes
The game has a whimsical appeal reminiscent of a fairy-tale world of magic, and its design reflects this topic. The Winning Wizards base game is simplistic in design, and the reels dominate the screen. The reel symbols are lively, and feature a variety of magical objects that one might find in a wizard’s chambers, including his spell book, his staff topped with a glowing orb and the wizard himself, dressed in a star-spangled robe and matching pointed wizard’s hat.
On the reels of the base game are a golden ruby ring, the wizard’s staff, an open spell book, a small blue potion bottle and the wizard, who is the highest paying symbol in the game and will award 10,000x players’ stakes when 5 of his symbol appear on an active payline. Also included are playing card symbols 10, J, Q and K in a swirling golden script.
