A lot of thought and effort has clearly gone into the design and theme of this slot machine as the reels looks as though they have been placed in the heart of a forest with green shrubbery for as far as the eye can reach. Wooden sticks separate the reels and different coloured bubbles highlight the twenty paylines that make up this slot game. Symbols that add the various colours to the reels are; lucky leprechaun, golden penny, wild mushrooms, ladybirds, four-leaf clover, silver horseshoe, pots of gold and card values 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
Beneath the reels is where the control panel lays with five buttons making it easy to place your bets. The message bar will highlight the total wins and display messages on the betting limits and line options. Either side of the message panel are boxes displaying your balance and current bet.
Magic Forest has 5 reels and 20 paylines which can be altered to suit your budget. Minimum bets are just 20 coins whilst maximum bets are set at 100 coins. The more you bet per spin, the more valuable the symbols on the reels become.
Maximum non-progressive jackpot that can be won is 37,500 coins – this is awarded when five leprechaun symbols fall onto an active payline. Five of a kind of the pot of gold symbols award a 10,000 coin sum with the wild mushroom and ladybird both offering 3,750 coins for five on your payline.
The scatter symbol (pot of gold) will award a multiplier cash sum to your balance when at least two symbols fall anywhere on your reels. Three or more and you will trigger the free spins bonus.
Ten free spins are awarded when you spin in at least three scatter symbols. Any wins that you accumulate during the free spins mode will be tripled – thanks to the 3x multiplier. Free spins can be triggered again whilst playing out your free spins.
Look out for the lucky leprechaun as not only does he trigger the non-progressive jackpot, but he is a wild and will transform into other symbols on the reels (bar scatter) to help form winning paylines.
If you are feeling extremely lucky, the gamble feature allows you to at least double your original line win. Click the gamble button that will be flashing after any win and play the simple 50/50 game of chance to win. If you predict the colour of the suit correctly, you will double your money. Keep going until you either want to cashout or lose.
Is It Really That Lucky?
Magic Forest is a medium variance slot machine that doesn’t only offer a brilliant design and theme. Thanks to the many wilds that fall on the reels, you can win some big cash – especially by triggering the free spins bonus.
The gamble option requires no skill and can easily wipe out any decent win that you may have originally won, so our opinion would be to use this at your peril. For a maximum bet of just 100 coins, the returns of up to 37,500 are superb and well worth a try.
