Magic Shoppe Slots is a visual masterpiece from the geniuses of Betsoft, that offers players the delight of staring at a perfectly animated background, enriched with the smoothest high frame rate animations imaginable. The background of the reels represents a magician’s laboratory and contains books, shelved on top of each other, a house of cards supporting a shiny canister, posters made of parchment on the walls, stuffed rubber-like frog toys with big staring eyes, a chest with multiple locks, a skull, a covered with a blanket cage and plenty of other wizard-like accessories needed to perform magic. All of that is beautifully illuminated by the stunningly animated windows and the light protruding from them. And as fascinating as the looks of Magic Shoppe may be, the gameplay is even more spectacular. The game features 5 reels with 3 rows and 25 paylines on which the neatly designed symbols with their own personal subtle animations will be appearing. Coin sizes start at 2 cents and can go as high as 1 dollar. The maximum number of bet coins is 5, which makes the maximum possible bet 125 dollars and the smallest possible – 25. Fully worthy of mentioning is the ambient music of the slot that is extremely moody, stylish and enigmatic in the very best of ways. The game’s title sign is hovering alongside a magical Egyptian-style eye in the top right part of the main screen.
Magic Wand Paytable
The Wild symbol of the game is a magical circle with the word “WILD” in it. Just like any other symbol in the game it has 3 winning combinations from 3 to 5 matching symbols. The wild pays 800 coins for 3 symbols, 1200 coins for 4 symbols and 2400 coins for 5 symbols. The skull symbol delivers 300, 500 and 1000 coins for 3, 4 and 5 matching symbols. The bronze, shiny handcuffs provide players with 200, 400 and 800 coins. The pair of daggers, one facing up, the other down, grant 125 coins, 250 coins and 500 coins. The silver coin with the dagger, engraved on it gives 100, 200 and 400 coins. The Magician’s Hat offers 50, 100 and 200 coins. The rest of the symbols are the usual card symbols. The Ace pays 40, 75 and 150 coins, The King – 25, 60 and 100 coins, The Queen – 20, 50 and 80 coins, the Jack – 10, 25 and 75 coins and the 10 – 5, 25 and 50 coins.
Symbol Effects and Features
The payable Wild symbol of the game is capable of replacing the rest of the symbols in Magic Shoppe in order to complete potential winning combinations. The symbols that can’t be replaced are the free spins giving symbols, which are the Sun Boxes and the Moon Boxes, as well as the Magic Wand symbols. There are two types of free spins in the game, which are otherwise identical and the only difference is their name and looks. These are the Sun Free Spin and the Moon Free Spins, activated via the Sun Box symbol and the Moon Box symbol respectively. They are boxes, encased in a lock-the Sun one is red and the Moon one is blue. The number of boxes gives the same number of spins in both their cases. 3 boxes grant 3 free spins, 4 boxes grant 6 free spins, 5 boxes deliver 12 free spins. The special Magic Wand symbol has the ability to create additional wild symbols. When at least 3 Wands show up on the reels, every Magic Wand, Sun Box or Moon Box symbol on the reels will be turned into a wild symbol. The transformed wilds will take from the image of the transformed symbols: the Sun Box wild is an opened Sun Box with the word “WILD” on it, the Moon Box has the same design and the Magic Wand Wild shows a white gloved hand, pressing the tip of the wand against the magical wild symbol ring. Another useful and generous feature in Magic Shoppe is the Double Up Game. The player can bet the entire earning or just half of it and then play an electronic version of Heads or Tails. If you guess correctly, the earning will be multiplied by 2.
Betsoft's team has once again outdone itself with Magic Shoppe-a gorgeously looking slot game with exceptional symbols, highly profitable features and entertaining gameplay.
