Relax Gaming partner, Fantasma Games are casting quite the spell in their latest magikal release, Magikspell!
Fantasma are one of our favourite Relax Gaming partners due to their sheer brilliance in the Innovation department.
When you’re playing a Fantasma slot you can usually always expect something different, and while it may not be a masterpiece the likes of which we’ve never seen, its always entertaining, and there’s always a lot of thought behind it.
Will Magikspell continue Fantasma’s streak of interesting concepts? Let’s find out
Magikspell has a limited selection of betting options for players to choose from. For those who prefer a lower stake, the minimum bet available here is £/€0.20 per spin. For those who prefer a higher stake, the maximum bet available is £/€50 per spin, with a handful of options in between the two.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol in Magikspell is the Wizard, followed by the Spell Book, Goblet, Diamond and Potion. Low paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten.
Wild symbols will only appear during the Magikspell Wilds feature and substitutes the longest possible winning combination on a bet line.
Magikspell is a 5 reel slot with 20 fixed paylines. In order to form a winning combination, you will need to connect 3 or more of the same symbol types from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
Fantasma Games are not usually one to disappoint when it comes to Features, and so it’s no surprise that Magikspell has not one but two for players to enjoy. More on these below.
During gameplay, you will come across special Purple and Gold Gems, these are a key part of the Magikspell Wild Feature.
When a Purple Gem symbol lands, its presence is marked with a Magik Ring. These Magik Ring positions will remain fixed on the reels, with the possibility of landing more with each base game spin. At any time, the Purple Gem symbol can transform into a Golden Gem symbol, marking it’s position with a Gold Ring.
The position with a Gold Ring will then transfrom all regular Magik Ring positions into Wilds, as long as they are connected either Horizontally or Vertically. This feature will happen on the next paid spin after the Gold Ring has appeared.
Magik and Gold Rings do not disappear from the reels until they are transformed into Wilds or if Magikspell Free Spins are triggered.
Just a side note, all inactive Magik and Gold Rings along with the Magik Meter progression is stored per bet, so you rest easy knowing all your hard work is secure.
Sat atop the reel set is two statues holding a progressive meter, this is known as the Magik Meter. There are a total of 3 Milestones to be reached.
Each time a Purple Gem symbol lands in view, +1 Point is added to the Magik Meter.
Once you reach the 3rd Milestone, the Magik Meter is then reset back to 0. If you manage to overfill the Magik Meter, the Free Spins Multiplier will be upgraded and the excess is added to the meter once it is reset to 0.
At the conclusion of Magikspell Free Spins, the awarded Multiplier will be reset back to x1.
Landing 3 Scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4, triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 3 Free Spins.
Once the Free Spins round is active, all positions marked with Magik and Gold Rings that did not transform into Wilds will be carried over to the Magikspell Free Spins round, as Prize Gem symbols. Prize Gem symbols are locked in a fixed position, each revealing a Cash Prize between 0.5x and 50x your current bet. The remaining empty positions will spin with the possibility of landing more Prize Gem symbols.
Each time a new Prize Gem symbol lands, they will also lock into the fixed positions and the number of Free Spins will be reset back to 3. When an entire reel is made up of Prize Gem symbols, the Cash Prizes are collected and the reel is cleared, making room for more Prize Gem symbols.
When Free Spins end, all your total winnings will be Multiplied by the awarded Free Spins Multiplier. In addition to this, all Magik and Gold Rings are subsequently reset after the Free Spins round.
Magikspell can put out some magical moments, providing you stick around long enough to see them come to fruition.
Granted, Magikspell can be a little bit of a grind, which could put some off, but the concept of a long journey for potentially big rewards could excite others. It wouldn’t exactly be the first time we’ve seen a slot where a lot of commitment is required, but the question is…is Magikspell good enough to warrant such dedication?
The question is of course always simple, but the answer is always a difficult one. Every single slot is bad until it’s good, or good until it’s bad, or amazing until it isn’t. There’s no definitive answer and the experience is all personal at the end of the day…but what we can say is that we believe Magikspell has all of the right stuff to be a popular Fantasma title.
The concept of the big x250 multiplier is an alluring one, and the maximum win potential of 20,000x is even more attractive. Should you reach this multiplier, then we’re in no doubt that Magikspell will win you over.
Overall, Magikspell caters to a certain kind of player in a way. You need to be patient, dedicated and confident, and you really need to understand what it could do in order to fuel that journey all the way to the end.
