Pragmatic Play has also released their first new slot game of the year and it’s called Magician’s Secrets.
This new slot game comes with 6 reels, each 4 symbols high and uses 1024 ways.
As the title might suggest, it features a magician theme with cauldrons, potions and standard card symbols. It also features scatter symbols on all reels and wild symbols on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.
During normal spins, when a wild symbols appears on the reels, there’s a chance that it might expand to cover the entire reel. When this happens it will also feature a multiplier between x2 and x10.
Free Spins Features
Magician’s Secrets comes with two different free spins features.
When you get 3 or more scatter symbols you trigger the bonus and you get to pick which feature you want to play.
- Expanding Wilds
This feature will award 10 free spins.
During free spins when a wild symbol lands on reels 3 and/or 4, the wild symbol will expand and you will trigger a re-spin feature. The expanded wild symbol will stay on the reel and all other reels spin again. As long as you keep getting a winning combination with the expanded wild symbol you will get another re-spin. After each re-spin the multiplier on the wild symbol will increase by +1.
Three or more scatter symbols during this feature will add 10 more free spins.
- Sticky Wilds
This feature will award 8 free spins.
Before free spins start one random symbol is picked to act as an additional wild symbol.
All wild symbols, including the extra wild symbol, that appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 will become sticky wild symbols and will stay on the reels until the end of the bonus.
When you fill a complete reel with wilds, you will trigger 3 more free spins.
Some casinos offering this slot game will also have the option to buy the bonus. At a cost of 100 times your bet.
I really like Magician’s Secrets. Although the theme isn’t anything special and done before a lot. I love the gameplay.
Slot games with ways are always a big plus for me. But especially the bonuses make this game a lot of fun. The expanding wilds during normal spins are a nice addition, but the free spins are even better.
I like that you are able to pick between two different free spins features. And both are valid picks. The one with the sticky wilds is a lot more volatile, the other one is a bit safer. So something for all. And these free spins bonuses can really give you some nice big wins from time to time.
I think Pragmatic Play made a great new first release this year with Magician’s Secrets. Let’s hope they keep it up for the rest of the year as well.
