Get the Owl in a Spin
When you’re ready to play, you’ll need to familiarize yourself with the game option before you hit the start button to make sure you’re betting at the level you want. Magic Owl has five generously sized reels and a total of 50 paylines so there’s a lot of chances for you to win. These paylines can be adjusted but only incrementally so you can’t decide in minute details how many you want in action. The coin value per line can be set from 10 to 100, giving lots of scope for both low and high rollers. In return for this, you’ll find that there are a total of eight symbols that you could land and you’ll need a match of three or more to get a prize. The top value prize is the owl giving a win of 2,500 when five are lined up.
The RTP hasn’t been released but with such a large number of paylines and relatively few symbols, it’s much easier to get a match than in some of the other slots. It’s therefore classified as a slot with low to medium volatility.
As well as using the regular symbols to match up a line, there’s some extras on the reels which could really help. The exotic-looking woman is the wild and can substitute for regular symbols so you should find it easier to get a winning combination. There’s scatters as well and if you land three or more, you’ll win free spins. These three symbols can be anywhere on the board; unlike other symbols there’s no need for them to be on sequential reels from left to right.
The game rules refer to a bonus round but this is a very loose description as the so-called bonus is nothing more than the free spins. While this is a great extra freebie to play for, it’s not a true bonus and it’s slightly misleading for players. During play, there’s the option to use the Auto Spin facility if you want to sit back and relax. This starts the reels automatically but won’t affect your chances of a win. Auto Spin can be turned on or off at any times using the large button on the main screen.
Dare to Play
If you were attracted to Magic Owl because of the prospect of winning a big prize, you might be interested in the Gamble function. Available every time there’s a regular win on the reels, the Gamble feature gives you the chance to double your prize – but it comes at a risk. If you guess incorrectly, you’ll lose everything you’ve just won so it’s not an option for the faint of heart. If you really want to up the ante, you could even scoop x4 your prize – but the chances of a win are even slimmer.
Regular slot players will be familiar with the Gamble as it’s the same card game that’s included on many other slots. As well as having to guess the colour of the next card to be turned over, players could also decide to bet on the suit. This is how they could win x4 of their prize.
The only slightly disappointment is that the Gamble hasn’t been customized or designed to fit in with the rest of the Owl Magic game. The screen is very generic and could form part of any slot, unlike the rest of Owl Magic which has beautiful and atmospheric 2D graphics.
