Whether it is stage magic, wizards and witches or even the occasional alchemist, we have always been fond of the magic theme on the reels, even when the actual quality of the resulting games has always been something of a mixed bag. As passionate about mobile video slots as Play’n Go clearly is, they are also prone to indulging in some classic slots action now and again too and, as it turns out, the theme is pretty inconsequential on 5x Magic as three reels of action is precisely what they have gone for. The good news is that while some developers like Microgaming still stick with classic fruit machines in their most typical style, Play’n Go generally throws something a little more interesting into the mix and we fully expect that to be the case here, so let’s see what it’s all about.
What to Expect
Play’n Go may not specifically be known for the quality of the graphics on their games, but they rarely let the side down in this regard. Combine this with their passion for the fruity style of slots action and it was pleasing to see that every bit as much effort has gone in to the design and creation of this game as any video slot. Sure, they have taken a bit of a shortcut, with the magician and his hat being joined by the traditional single, double and triple bars, but we can admit that we do not actually mind this nod towards tradition all that much.
The game itself plays out much like players would expect from something like this. There are five win lines, which is a decent number for any classic slot game, and there are plenty of different coin bets in play to suit just about all tastes. We noted that Play’n Go can often be relied upon to modernise their classic slots somewhat and they have done just that here in a couple of different ways, starting with the scatter. The rabbit in the hat is the symbol in question and he, like all good scatters, can pay out prizes even if the symbol combination does not land along one of the various win lines.
Joining the rabbit in the hat is the 5x symbol from which the game gets its name. The symbol itself is a wild card and, as the icon itself might suggest, wins that make use of it are multiplied five times over. These wilds are capable of joining each other too, as if two of them form part of a winning combination, the resulting prize will be boosted by 25 times, which can make a massive difference. Finally, three in a row not only mean that they are no longer technically wild, but multipliers are out the window too as players will straight up win the top prize on offer on this game, that being a 5,000-coin jackpot.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
For a classic, fruit machine style slot, 5x Magic is very good indeed and we are almost tempted to say that you do not even have to necessarily be a fan of this kind of action in order to get involved – although it helps. Proper pub fruit machines are still few and far between online and on mobile devices and this might well be the closest that players can come. It takes a certain kind of player to miss out on free spins and other video slot features, but if that is what you are in to, this game is sure to deliver.
