Magicious is an online slot game by software provider Thunderkick. It boasts the traditional Thunderkick superb quality graphics and unique atmosphere. The game will transport you to an old fashioned magic show, with a magician and his long-legged female assistant. Both are on stage standing on either side of the reels, magic wands in hand, and whenever you land a winning combination, those wands are going to zap it with a blue stream of energy. The graphics have a nice 3D feel to them, by the way, despite being slightly cartoonish, and there’s a matching soundtrack to go along with them and accompany gameplay.
But onto the technical aspects of this title, let’s first have a look at the layout. It features the most common grid in the world of online slot games, namely one with 5 reels and 3 rows. These come with a total of 10 active paylines and you won’t be able to regulate these or change their number. Then again, stakes start comfortably low, so you probably won’t really need to either. In fact, the minimum bet is a very agreeable 10p per single spin and the maximum possible amount you will be able to wager on these reels is £100 per spin.
Where to Play
The Wild is the real star of the show in Magicious. It depicts a giant purple orb and is the only special symbol you will encounter in the game. As such, it will be able to replace any and all of the other icons when trying to form winning combinations. There are no exceptions to this, as there are no other special icons.
Furthermore, the Wild can appear in stacks, so you can see several at a time on the reels, or even entire reels covered in Wilds. However, the Wild can only land on the middle reels 2, 3 and 4. On top of all of that, the Wilds can also expand. In other words, whenever you land a Wild on the reels they can expand to fill the whole reel.
Better yet, when that Wild expands, it will remain in place whilst triggering a Re-spin. The more Wilds you land, the more Re-spins you get to benefit from. Hence, if you landed 2 or 3 Wild symbols, this will trigger 2 or 3 consecutive spins, respectively. So you can potentially scrape up some nice wins as a result.
Magicious is a really nice offering, with great visuals and a compelling theme. It lacks any of the traditional bonus features such as free spins or pick me games, and that might be a turn-off for many players. But in reality, the Wild and its Re-spin feature alone provide plenty of entertainment and winning opportunities. As a matter of fact, due to the game’s relatively low variance, you will get to trigger the special feature pretty often.
