Long And Happy Life
Everyone expects the winter season with the festive magic of Christmas. Play’n GO has prepared for us a video slot which grants you more presents. They come in the form of stacked premium symbols, wild substitutions, high line pays and more.
Xmas Magic is due to release on November 21, 2019. The game is set on the outer brick wall of a house. It offers 4-symbols high premium symbols, stacks of wilds and up to 20 free spins. The slot has very high volatility which has an option to gamble each of your wins with a chance to double it.
Xmas Magic has 5 reels, 4 rows and up to 50 adjustable pay-lines. You will get paid for wins made of 2 to 5 matching symbols from left to right on any of the lines. The bet size ranges according to the number of pay-lines that you have activated: you can have from 1 to 50 at a time. We recommend using the largest number of lines to have the best chance for wins. It is better to have more pay-lines active than to bet more on each line.
The betting range starts from 0.01 credits when having only one pay-line. It can reach up to 0.50 -100 credits when you activate all 50 pay-lines. Xmas Magic has a very high level of volatility. Its RTP ranges from 94.59 to 96.50%. So, before starting to play check the help file to know which version of the game the online casino uses. The jackpot in the game is 1,000x stake per spin in the base game and 4,000 times your stake up to £400,000 during free spins. The slot offers a gamble feature too.
The graphics of the game are not very impressive or magical. You will see a town in the Arctic region during the winter with snow-covered hills. This is the background of the playing window. The reels are positioned on the dark brick wall of a house. On them, you will see the royal cards in different colours each. There are also some typical Christmas items for decorations and celebrating. Santa Claus will appear as the scatter.
On the top of the playing grid, there is a Chrismas decorated label of the game. Things change when you trigger the free spin. Then, you can relish in the spectacular Aurora Borealis which illuminates the screen. The layout is intuitive with all buttons of the main menu positioned on the bottom of the window. The graphics are not bad, but also not anything brilliant.
The symbols taking part in the slot are the card royals from 9 to A, which give you from 4 to 8 times your stake. Typical Christmas items are the higher-value icons. Such are cups of hot chocolate, snowy glass globes, Christmas stockings. There are candy canes and mistletoe. All these picture symbols can reward you with from 8 to 20 times your stake for 5 of a kind combinations.
The best player among all is the mistletoe which can land 4 symbols high stacked. When you hit 5 of it on a pay-line you will receive 20 times your stake. There is a wild symbol and this is the golden gift box. It can land on reels from 2 to 5 only playing its standard substituting role. The scatter is Santa Claus and it lands on reels 1 to 3 only.
Most other slots by Play’N GO are usually full of extra modifiers, multipliers, bonuses and random features. This one is an exception. You can hit the 4-positions high stacked mistletoe symbol. It will give you 1,000 times your stake for a full screen. Another extra in the game is the gamble feature. It lets you put at stake each of your line wins with a chance to double or risking to lose it. You can continue the gamble until you reach 2,500 coins.
The main focus of the game is the Free Spins. You win them by landing three scatters of Santa on reels 1 to 3 in one spin. You will then receive 10 free rounds, which you can re-trigger once only and get a total of 20 free spins. There are two modifiers active during these rounds. These can substantially enhance your winning chances.
The mistletoe which is active in the base game lands always as a 4-symbols high in the free spins. In addition to this, before the free rounds start a second premium symbol is selected at random. It will appear stacked 4-symbols high. This way you will have double chances for wins done from the two 4-symbols stacked symbols.
Moreover, on each of the free spins, two extra wilds are added to land on reels from 2 to 5. They appear stacked onto existing wilds increasing the wild stacks with each spin. These wild stacks increase your chances of scoring more and better winning combinations. On the 10th free spin, you will have an 11-symbol wild stack. To get huge wins you need to re-trigger the free spins. Land 3 more scatters during them and get another 10 rounds. This way you will have constantly growing stacks of wilds from the many free rounds. As a result, you can win the maximum achievable cash reward of 4,000 times your stake.
Xmas Magic is a video slot with very high volatility. This means that you will have many non-winning rounds. It is suitable for high rollers and players who can afford it. The features in it are a few and the boosting ones are concentrated mainly in the free spins. The stacked wilds and the other 2 premium symbols landing 4-symbols high are the keys to massive wins. The top prize for Christmas is 1,000 times your stake in the base game and 4,000 x stake in free spins.
