Magic Idol has a tropical theme running throughout, from the slot machine design to the symbols that feature upon the reels. Green is the colour behind the reels with an African safari style logo sitting to the top of the screen. Paylines are situated either side of the screen and allow you to view the 10 different win lines that are featured with this slot game.
Like all Amatic slot titles, the control panel is situated beneath the reels with various buttons allowing for easier playing. Symbols that add splashes of colours to an otherwise bold and bland screen are; golden tribal mask, piranha, drum, sunny island, tribal boy, tribal girl, parrot and a stone-age hammer.
You will find 5 reels and 10 different paylines to this slot machine. Paylines are not fixed which means players can adjust accordingly to suit their style of play – remember that the more paylines in play, the more chance you have of winning. Coin value allows you to play from 20 coins right up to 500 coins.
The non-progressive jackpot is awarded when five of the sunny island symbols fall on your payline, this awards a maximum of 250,000 coins, whilst four offers 50,000 coins. The second highest value symbol is the golden tribal mask which offers 25,000 coins for 5 of a kind.
Slot Bonus Features
There are just two features offered with Magic Idol slot machine; free spins and a gamble feature. Firstly, three or more of the golden tribal mask symbols will award free spins – these symbols appear on reels 3, 4 and 5. You will be awarded 15 free spins initially but whilst you are playing your free spins, you can trigger more and more if you are lucky enough to spin in more of the golden tribal masks. All wins accumulated during free spins are awarded with a 3x multiplier.
Last but not least is the gamble feature. No matter how small or big your win on the reels, you have the ability to gamble for more. When you hit a winning combination, the gamble button will flash on the control panel, hit this if you wish to take advantage of this feature. Your screen will change to a table game with a shuffling deck of card to the centre and a history of coloured suits to the top right.
Analyse the draw history to try and determine the next colour suit of card to be drawn. Should you guess correctly, your new winning balance will be sitting to the top of the red deck of cards with the amount you could win next guess to the top of the black cards. You can collect at any stage because this 50/50 game of chance is exactly like tossing a coin – there’s no skill and you will end up losing everything on one incorrect guess.
Our Thoughts on the Slot
Almost every spin of the reels would bring a win – this is what we would expect from a low to medium slot machine such as this. Whilst big wins are few and far between, there are many smaller wins on the reels to keep your bankroll topped up and you playing longer. Free spins allow you to win big cash, especially combined with the 3x multiplier on all wins.
The big wins will fall during the free spins – not unless you can trigger five of a kind on the reels. We found Magic Idol to be a fun slot game with brilliant sounds and features.
