There's been a few slots about magicians and magic over the years and it remains a rich seam to be mined when it comes to slot games. The take on these games tends to stretch from the darker, more strange elements of magic, to the more entertaining, simple form that you'd get watching a TV show.

The Magic Wilds slot from Red Rake Gaming certainly tends towards the former rather than the latter given its moody atmospherics and dark setting for the slot. The Magician himself is stacked four high on the reel and when landed in part on a reel turns those symbols wild. Land him in full on a single reel and the Astral Projection bonus will trigger offering you a chance at some sizeable wins.

This is an interesting and unusual 5-reel slot which can be played from just 0.10 per spin up to 50.00 per spin. There are 32 pay lines in the standard base game but this increase up to 100 in the Free Spins round when additional symbols are added to each of the reels (up to eight per reel).

So is the Magic Wilds slot something worth playing, or is this a trick that you have seen plenty of times before? Let's take a closer look and find out.

Presentation

The presentation of the Magic Wilds slot is simple but effective. The backdrop is the Magicians somewhat spooky mansion which is dark and atmospheric and this is echoed by the rather creepy and unusual music that accompanies the game. This is not your average Paul Daniels magician, but something a little bit more creepy. That said, the presentation is very effective and it creates a very enjoyable atmosphere for the slot to be played in.

What's on the reels?

There are a total of 12 standard symbols on the reels and they start with the four magic symbols and these offer wins ranging from 1/5 of your bet up to 1x your bet if you land five across the reels, however it is possible to land wins on multiple lines with these symbols and using Wilds, which does increase their value somewhat.

The mid-low value symbols are the three gemstones, the ruby, sapphire and emeralds and these offer slightly higher wins of between 0.3x your bet and 1.5x your bet. The magic spell book and the pendant are the mid-value symbols offering wins of between 0.4x and 3x your bet.

The higher value symbols are the three golem creatures, blue, pink and green and these offer wins from 0.5x your bet up to 5x your bet.

Alongside these symbols there are a couple of other symbols on the reels, a Stacked Magician symbol which is four symbols high, a Wild and a Scatter bonus symbol, each of which is key to the main bonus features of the slot as we shall explore below.

Wild features

The pentagram is the standard Wild symbol and this serves two functions in the game. First it can substitute for any of the other standard symbols on the reels to help land a bigger bonus but you can also trigger the biggest value win in the game by landing consecutive Wilds across the reels, up to the jackpot prize of 750 coins on a single line.

In addition to these single Wild triggers, you can also land additional Wilds on the reels when you land one, two or three of the four symbol high Magician symbols anywhere on the reels. Whatever proportion of the big symbol you land on the reels, will turn Wild for that spin and this can lead to some sizeable wins in the base game, especially if you can land multiple of these symbols across the reels.

These are not the only Wild-linked feature on the slot as the Astral Projection Bonus, which we look at below, also uses Wild symbols to offer the players a chance of a sizeable win.

Free Spins features

The Free Spins bonus is triggered when you land three of the Bonus Scatters across the first, third and fifth reels. In the bonus game you start with 12 Free Spins and you will notice that the reel set shrinks in size when the bonus begins. That is because with each Free Spin in the number of symbols on each reel can increase in size up to a maximum of 8 symbols on each reel. As the number of symbols increases, so does the number of winning lines across the reels (up to a maximum of 100 when you have all eight symbols on the reels). You can still land the Wild and Astral Projection bonuses in the Free Spins round.

Another bonus that only occurs in Free Spins is the Hocus Pocus Scatters bonus. The fifth reel contains a Scatter +1 symbol and if you can land one or more of these on a spin, then you will receive one additional Free Spin per Hocus Pocus Scatter landed on that fifth reel. This can be triggered several times during the bonus round to give you additional free spins.

Other bonus features

The other main bonus feature of the slot is the Astral Projection bonus. This is triggered when you land the full Magician symbol on one of the reels in the base game or free spins. The Magician symbol is four symbols high and when it covers a real, he will Astral Project his body into one or more of the other reels. This will then turn those reels Wild. This can produce a mixed bag of wins, some smaller value, some much higher, some huge and some don't trigger a win, but the more Astral Projections he performs and the more reels turned Wild, then the better your chances of a big win, especially if he covers one or more of the first three reels.

Best feature of the Magic Wilds slot

There are two big features on the Magic Wilds slot and it is hard to pick between them as to what is the best feature. The Free Spins bonus with the expanding reel size (and up to 100 ways to win on a spin) is a really clever way to introduced added chances to win on each of your bonus spins, but I think the Astral Projection bonus when you land the full four-symbol high Magician symbol and he replicates himself on other reels and then turns into Wilds, is the best bonus as this can lead to some huge wins in the base game and Free Spins.

What does the Magic Wilds slot lack?

In truth, I don't think the Magic Wilds slot lacks anything within the game itself, its presentation or the key bonuses. Everything has been designed very well on the slot and it all fits together like a completed jigsaw with no missing parts. This is one of those very rare slots where I would not make any changes to how the slot is structured and organised and that is high praise indeed as I can usually find something to grumble about on most slots.

Conclusion

The Magic Wilds slot is a fantastic example of how to take a traditional slot game, give it a twist and make it something special and very playable. The game has some standard features, but has done enough with them to make it stand out and look fresh and innovative. The base game is fun to play, very nicely presented and has a nice mix of rewards available and the Free Spins bonus and Astral Projection bonuses are really where the bigger wins tend to be found, but both seem accessible even on shorter sessions. This is a fantastic slot game and certainly easy to see why it is such a popular slot with Red Rake Gaming customers.

Ratings

  • Presentation: 17 / 20 - The way that Red Rake Gaming have set up the Magic Wilds slot is quite different to how some people portray magicians. The company has gone for a darker element with this slot and with its dark, creepy backdrop and somewhat ominous sound, the slot looks and sounds quite intense. This does give the slot a somewhat more unusual edge and the fact that you can then get the increasing reels in the Free Spins bonus does give the game an added edge. This is a very well done slot indeed.
  • Game-play: 16 / 20 - One of the key aspects of any successful slot is how the game play balances during a typical session and Magic Wilds certainly seems to hit all the right buttons. The base game is good fun to play with the 5x4 reels and 30 pay lines offering a mix of wins, mostly small, but the fact you hit Wilds and Stacked Wilds regularly does help land you some bigger value wins. Free Spins also don't seem too difficult to hit and this certainly adds a huge amount to the game play.
  • Bonus Features: 17 / 20 - Magic Wilds is a great example of how you don't have to have a slot with a myriad of bonus features, if the features that they have are innovative, work well and offer the player a genuine chance of reward. There's only really Wild and Free Spins bonuses on the slot but both are unique and very well done. The stacked Magician symbol turning Wild is a huge boost in the base game and Free Spins and the fact you get increasing reel sizes in the Free Spins bonus is another great addition to the game.
  • Entertainment Factor: 18 / 20 - It is easy to see why Magic Wilds is one of the most popular Red Rake Gaming slots every month. This is a beautifully constructed game and it offers a nice mix of risk and reward. Players of all bankroll sizes can play, it has some fantastic bonus features that will be popular with all players and offers players a good range of wins. This is certainly a slot you will keep coming back to play time and time again.
  • Play Value: 14 / 20 - As a low to medium variance slot, this is a game that so long as you play for a sensible wager for your bankroll, should not take too big a bite out of your finances. In addition, the fact that you can win some sizeable sums, especially when the main bonus features trigger such as Free Spins or the Astral Projection bonus, means that you always feel you are in with a chance of a decent sized win and that is what really makes this game appeal.
  • Overall 82 / 100 - Magic Wilds is an absolutely fantastic slot game from Red Rake Gaming and it is easy to see why it is one of the company's most popular slot games every month. The bonuses are well thought out, follow the theme of the game superbly well and offer the player a great mix of risk and reward. Free Spins is innovative with expanding reels and the Astral Projection bonus can be hugely rewarding. It can be volatile, especially when playing for higher amounts, but generally this is a slot that offers lower to medium variance and is a hugely entertaining game to play.

Good Luck!
