The Potion Factory mobile slot is a bright an colourful game that will ‘nudge’ you in the right direction, and provide some interesting concoctions.
We have to say, we prefer playing on Leander slots online. On mobile, the graphics just lack a little sharpness and edge to them, which makes them feel dated – even though their online slots, look fresh and new.
We mention it because it’s even clearer with this Potion Factory slot, which is such a bright and beautiful affair normally, but looks a little drab on iPads and Android tablets. A little less so on mobile phones, granted.
Still, there no denying that this, with it’s funny little magicians minions, and colourful bottles, provides a refreshing take on the old Magic slots.
The Potion Factory slot game is a pretty high variance machine. Meaning, if you’re not careful, your money can quickly get sunk in the base game as you wait for the hard hitting bonus features.
That said, it’s helped a little bit by the ‘nudge’ feature, which will make it so reel 2 and 4 nudge by 1 to 3 spaces to create winning combinations if possible.
It’s great fun, keeps the base game lively, and with expanded wilds, certainly lets you play longer.
But, it basically costs twice your bet. So the already pretty high 0.40 a bet, turns to 0.80 – which may be more than you want to play.
That’s ok though, if you want to experience all that Leander has to offer, we’d then recommend you play on Dragon Slot instead.
The real stars of the show are no doubt the bonus features.
One is a simple but amusing click me bonus, which upon picking potions, you turn your minion into strange shapes, until he becomes a super minion and you win a multiplier.
But the free spins are no doubt where the real fun is at, namely thanks to the sticky wild that stays on screen until the end of the round, and where we’ve gotten over 100 times our bet on more than one occasion.
The fact that you get potentially 3 levels of bonus rounds, through a ‘bonus wheel’, and that it hits often, makes us forgive the so-so graphics and (frankly) vaguely annoying sounds.
The Potion Factory slot game is a fun, colourful, affair that, if you have the budget, has both the wins and action to keep you in this lab, concocting a whole combination of wins over 40 paylines.

Expanded Wild: The multi-coloured potion is wild, and when on any reel, will expand to cover all 4 rows of symbols.
Auto-nudge Feature: For the cost of 40 times your line bet, you can make it so reel 2 and 4 will 'auto-nudge'. Basically, if there is a possible winning combination to be made by nudging the symbols by 1 to 3 spaces, it will nudge the reels.
The Multi-Level Potion Factory Bonus: Find 3 or more of the bonus symbols on reel 1, 3 and 5, and you'll be sent to the Potion Factory bonus games wheel.
Here, there are three options you can randomly fall on; the free spins, the 'x formula' click me feature, or instant cash wins.
Underneath each of the options will also say 'end feature' or 'next level'. There are a total of 3 levels - each level you could, potentially win free spins. Or instant cash, or the click me feature, or any combination.
But if you click on 'end feature', you get your win (or bonus game), and then the feature ends.
Free Spins with Sticky Wins: If you land on this feature, the wilds will not expand as they do in the base game, but instead stay sticky till the end. We've hit 4 or 5 wilds often enough to know it's a nice feature to get.
The X formula click me bonus: You basically start with a big pot of multipliers on your bet. You then click on potion to try and create a 'x' formula and turn the little minion into a super minion.
The more wrong choices you make, the lower the multiplier becomes. On average expect around 20 times your bet here.
Though if you trigger this on level 3, you do tend to get more.
The Potion Factory mobile slot has lots going for it; and we were almost tempted to give it 4 stars, had this been a slot review about the online game only.
As it stands, on mobile, it lacks the sharpness of graphics and sounds that we've gotten use to.
That said, there's some great gameplay here, especially if you can afford the nudge feature, as you get lots of wins, and with the bonus features, really big wins.
More action packed than the Ali Baba slot, but with equally great wins. What's not to love?
Or you can play Potion Factory at one of these mobile casinos:
