Magic Castle takes us to the Middle Ages, where we meet Leonora, a sorceress that has the role of the main character in this IGT slot machine. The game relies on this idea of magic and the medieval setting, and in the end it proves to be an interesting title because of this mix.
In Magic Castle, the player will encounter 40 paylines, to be used on the regular 5 reels that will spin for you. You get big multipliers, up to 150 free spins, scatters and wilds, so overall it’s a feature packed slot machine. The prize is worth at most 1,000 coins to you, or up to $50,000.
Betting and Prizes
For the full range of the bets that you can place in Magic Castle, you have 40 active lines to cover, but the line bet can vary a lot. The minimum seems to be set to just $0.01, while the maximum could get to $50. The overall range of your bets in Magic Castle will be $0.40 to $2,000, which should please both penny slot players and high rollers.
As for the rewards, they are good enough to bring you an average Return to Player of 96.08%, which is what you’d expect from such a slot anyway. The biggest prize, of 1,000 coins, could have a value of as much as $50,000. You can take this further through the multipliers of up to 10x which are applied to all wins when wilds are present, so you could in theory even get up to $500,000.
Magic Castle Slot Features
I think that you will find very important one symbol in particular, the one showing you the witch, Leonora. The symbol is considered a wild, but in addition to acting as a replacement it can also form combinations by itself, in which case you can take home one of those prizes of 1,000 coins. It’s not just any regular wild though, the symbol occupying two positions at a time. It works by acting as a replacement for missing symbols, as long as they’re not scatters.
An impressive side of the wild feature is that whenever Leonora makes an appearance anywhere on the reels, the player will get a feature called Crystal Ball Multiplier. Depending on the number of reels that have wilds, there will be multipliers selected to use on all the wins of that round. It’s going to be a 2x to 10x multiplier for one reel with a wild on it, 3x to 10x for two reels and so on, with the maximum range of 6x to 10x offered when all five reels get wilds.
You get free spins as well, so that’s another very popular feature that is present besides the wild. Scatters sporting the images of Moonlit Castles will show up on the middle three columns and together they will trigger 15 free spins. The multiplier of up to 10x can apply to the number of free spins if it’s offered that round, so you could get up to 150 free spins instead. The wins from the free spins benefit from their own 2x to 10x multipliers, chosen at random each round.
Theme & Design
A slot machine that sports a magic and medieval theme is not very difficult to come by, so in that regard Magic Castle is not offering anything unique. You will encounter the image of Leonora, along with moonlit castles, black cats, wolves, spell books, jewelry boxes, lockets, red roses and goblets.
Magic Castle will sport medieval style graphics that are appealing, but the real strength of this latest slot machine comes from the excellent features that were included in it.
