Arctic Magic Slot Review (Microgaming)
Microgaming is a renowned developer and with each new video game release, we are always on the lookout to see what they have in store for us. Most of their slot games come with excellent features not to forget the good payout potential that is common with the developer. Their latest slot is called Artic Magic; I had the opportunity to play this slot and below is my review:
Arctic Magic comes on the usual 5-reel and it uses 3 symbols for every column. The slot has just 9 fixed pay lines. However, the payout is quite encouraging as it can go to as much as 3,333xs.
For the feature, it is a mix of the common things we see like the wilds, scatters and the free spins (3x multipliers).
Betting and Prizes
Considering that Artic has 59 fixed lines, the bet amount starts from $0.09 to $45 per spin. The game’s RTP is at 9.10% which is within the industry’s range.
However, the game is quite generous and you can get payouts of up to 1,111xs in the base game while the free spins boost your win potential to as high as to 3,333xs. This translates to $50,000 for the paid spins and $150,000 for the free spins for this highly volatile slot.
Arctic Magic Slot Features
The wild symbol comes in the form of a mountain and the game’s logo. Obviously, this is the symbol you use as a substitute for the regular symbols. It also comes with a 2x multiplier.
To create winning combinations with the wild symbol, you will need to place it at least five times on a betting line. This way, you will also get to enjoy the slot’s bigger prices.
The other significant symbol is the scatter symbol. If you manage to land it at three times, it will award you with 15 free spins in addition to a round of 500xs stake prize.
While in the free spin mode, all wins are tripled in value and there is a chance of retriggering the free spins with an additional 3+ scatters.
Theme & Design
The slot’s theme is a combination of the Arctic region together with its wildlife. There is also a touch of Northern Lights, which is a common trend in slots of this type.
The wildlife is what Microgaming uses for higher value symbols. These symbols include the wolf, polar bear, fox, and a rabbit as well as a reindeer that appears on the reels. Lower value symbols are represented by the Royals.
Arctic Magic may look pleasing with its high-quality graphics and excellent design. However, I must admit that being a slot game from a prominent developer like Microgaming, it does not really create any thrill, and especially to players who love action-packed slots.
