Where to play?
Players looking for a perfect low betting game with a decent sized non-progressive jackpot of 36,000 coins will enjoy iSoftBet’s Illusions 2 video slot. It features 30 paylines, 5 reels, expanding wilds, a free spins feature with 3 options where 15 free spins can be won with multiplier wins of up to 6x.
My initial impression of the theme is that’s it’s been flogged to death like old Wild Bill Hickok’s horse Chestnut. The slots has a magic theme where a willy magician runs the show. Symbols that appear on the reels is the magician’s beautiful assistant, flowers and card symbols so large it could be spotted a mile away. Since the graphics are a tad sharp, the slots is more suitable to mobile devices such as Androids and tablets while desktop play is a breeze.
The return to player (RTP) is 96.3%, based on my playing experience it’s a low to medium variance game that pays out often. When it comes to triggering the free spins feature you might spend a sizeable portion of your bankroll, so keep the bets to a minimum if you have a small bankroll. If you don’t your bankroll will be as paranoid as a mouse in a barn full of cats. During the main game it’s the wilds responsible for all the action so keep a close eye on them.
The slots has one of the lowest coin ranges I’ve seen. It starts of with a low 0.01 to 0.02 and up to 10 coins per line can be wagered. Low rollers can place their bets from £0.20 per spin while medium and high staked players can wager £4 per spin.
As mentioned previously, the wild (magical hands with wand) offer the biggest wins during the base game since they come with multiplier wins from 1x,2x, 3x to 5x. They become sticky offering you a re-spin but they’re not just ordinary wilds because they can become progressive with each win. In other words you can win as much as 10x your line bet if all of them appear on a row. When the wild completes a winning line it replaces all the other symbols except the ‘trick’ icon and the scatter.
Scatter And Free Spins
When 3 magician icons pitch regardless of position on the reels, the free spins feature is activated. However, it’s not your standard free spins mode since you’re given one of three choices. The first free spins feature offers you 15 free spins with multiplier wins of 2x (cough, cough…dull and dreary to be honest). The second one offers you 8 free spins with 3x multipliers (bit meh to my liking but getting better) and the third free spins feature gives you 5 with decent multipliers of 6x.
I think it’s safe to say that the third one is the best of the lot-it’s all about those multipliers. iSoftBet added a nice innovative streak to the free spins in the form of a ‘Trick’s symbol. The moment it appears, it expands covering the entire reel as a wild-it sticks to the reels like a tick to a wool blanket for the remainder of the free spins. This can be the most exciting part of the free spins since it really takes wins up a couple of notches. Suffice it to say you can win anything from 10x to 15x your stake.
Just so that we’re clear. Triggering the free spins is easy, yes you heard me loud and clear. Wins aren’t that big though but it gives you enough cash to keep on spinning those reels and have oodles of fun at the same time.
Despite its low betting range this is one little slots that packs a mean punch. A player that goes by the username of ‘Badwinner’ won 42.705 BTC at BitStarz Casino. As you can see it has the potential to pay out a decent cash prize despite its low betting range. For what it’s worth smart players can really ‘milk’ this slots.
