Magnificent 8 Slot
Coming via Betdigital, Magnificent 8 is a very well crafted game, which has a Chinese theme that doesn’t end up looking like most slots from this category. The fun new graphics aside, there are some decent features to be found inside as well, and you can read all about those below.
Magnificent 8 has 5x3 reels, sports the usual 20 lines on them, and when all things line up, wins of up to 250x the stake become possible. Though payouts might not be at the highest level, the 96% RTP tells us that this is not a major issue, just something that turns the slot into something that casual players would prefer. It’s a game with Fortune Cookie Wilds, Bonus Symbols and a Bonus Game, so feature wise you’re getting the basics.
Betting and Prizes
Using the Up and Down arrows which are placed next to the Spin button, select a wager that you feel is appropriate, the range there being from $0.20 to $100.
It’s not the type of game to promise big rewards, which suggests a lower volatility and a type of experience that would be best for casual players. 250X the stake is the highest payout available here, and it could mean up to $25,000 cash paid out in a single round.
The slot still has the right RTP level, being expected to pay back 96% of what’s wagered inside.
Magnificent 8 Slot Features
You don’t get the most unique or interesting features in Magnificent 8, but the game does alright overall, and you do have the usual options around, so you’re not going to be missing them.
First, a Fortune Cookie Wild is available for you to use, but only on the reels 2 to 5. The 1st reel can’t get this symbol, which means that it is also not able to create winning combinations by itself. It is only available as a replacement symbol, but at the same time it will be used in that capacity even when it comes to triggering bonus games.
Land the Magnificent 8 symbol at least three times in consecutive order, and on the same line, and you will trigger the bonus feature. As mentioned above, wilds can substitute for bonus symbols, so their presence counts as well. For this bonus game, you will get the cash reel to spin and give you a prize. Should you land the Magnificent 8 symbol on it, then you get an additional round, with higher payouts.
That’s it for the list of features that Betdigital has implemented in Magnificent 8. You don’t get anything truly exciting, just the usual options, the twist being the wild’s ability to help trigger bonus games.
Theme & Design
Magnificent 8 is based on Chinese legends, and it follows the country’s culture and expected visuals. It’s got a fisherman boy as the main character, sitting next to the reels. On the reels, the symbols shown will include Gold Coins, a Chinese Man, Black Hand Fans, Tea Pots, Scrolls, Drums, Rice bowls, Paper Lanterns, a Magnificent 8 bonus symbol and a Fortune Cookie Wild. The graphics quality is excellent, and the style is different enough, so the slot doesn’t look like a typical Chinese slot.
Magnificent 8 doesn’t have the most exciting list of features, its payouts are on the low side, and overall it looks like a slot for more casual players. I did like the graphics though, they’re not the usual fare that you find in the Chinese category.
