Well of Wonders
The Well of Wonders lives up to its name as a mysterious slot that offers unconventional play.
I love slots that have a magical element and are a bit different. If you think that ordinary life can only be improved with a sprinkle of fairy dust, then welcome to Thunderkick’s Well of Wonders slot!
Well of Wonders is an online slot game from Thunderkick with 35 Ways to Win. This is a Medium to High volatility slot with a Return to Player of 96.1% and a max win of 2,280x.
The game is quite unusual with 7 symbols dropping into the play area per spin. Features include 3D graphics, Multipliesr, Random Wilds, Respins and Standard Wilds. The game launched in March 2017
The game’s graphics are super crisp and reminded me of Fruit Warp. Layer on the chilled music and I was quickly away with the fairies. I was tempted to break out my yoga mat!
The reels are set in a woodland, with a rune covered magical well, and numbered stones indicating the multiplier levels lying on the ground around it.
There are no reels or rows – it’s a very refreshing, “outside of the box” design.
Well of Wonders Slot Game Play
7 fairy jewels gently float above the Well of Wonders and each time you hit spin a new selection of sparklers pop out of the well and rotate forming patterns. This is a real departure from more traditional games like Bar Bar Black Sheep – it makes a change!
Each of the different coloured gems has a different value, depending how many of them you can lure out of the well. If you get 3 of the same gems then you have a win on your hands.
There is a Wild symbol, (a glowing rune stone), which substitutes for all other symbols. And look out for the most important symbol of all: the Fairy. This special creature appears in the game, and she’s one to keep look out for.
A quick word on those multipliers, – there is a multiplier of up to x32 so keep your eyes on the multiplier number stones!
Getting me Spinning!
What’s great about the Well of Wonders slot is the re-spins. When you get your 3 of a kind out of that well, then you get a re-spin- which means the winning gems change again to produce more new combos.
Each time you re-spin, the multiplier goes up. A great little mechanic that reminds us of Starburst.
Pros and Cons
That fairy bringing welcome gifts!
Very cool graphics that look even better on a mobile- typical Thunderkick
The multiplier trail goes all the way up to 32x
Fairy Feature Fun
That special little fairy can turn up at random, and when she does, she makes some serious changes to the rules of the game. She’ll show up on a losing spin and brings gifts with her, including bigger multipliers, more re-spins, and she even takes out single symbols to give you new ones- she’s a welcome little helper!
The Well of Wonders slot has creative game play compared to more standard games like Top Trumps Celebs and the Gladiator slot.
The game looks fantastic and those musical fairy vibes are strangely relaxing. This game is a winner for anyone who likes the a mystical world theme and enjoys an alternative slot. The graphics make it an enjoyable game, whether you believe in fairies or not!

How many reels and rows are there in Well of Wonders?
It’s a pretty unusual set up. 7 magical rune stones float onto the reels on each spin. To score a win, you need 3 of the same. You could say that it is a 7×1 layout, but it doesn’t look like it!
What is the highest paying symbol?
The red jewel is the top payer netting you 50 times your stake if you land seven at the same time.
What happens when you score a win?
When you land a winning combination, the winning symbols disappear and are replaced by new symbols. With another win, there’s a 2x multiplier applied and each consecutive win doubles the multiplier to 4x then 8x, then 16x and finally 32x. You can see the increasing multiplier in the “Well of Wonders”. This is a similar kind of mechanic to Avalanche Wins on Gonzo’s Quest.
