Where to play?
Magic Portals is a 5 reel, 25 payline video slots that’s powered by Net Entertainment. I must warn you that the game has been labelled by many players as ‘highly addictive‘! The slots is teeming with all things magical; the graphics are well-thought out with loads of fire and ice symbols meandering across your screen. However, as a fan of fantasy themed slots I don’t think the game will be everyone’s cup of tea. Wins are boosted by random wilds and a free spins feature that’s unique to NetEnt only.
The graphics appear sharp on the latest mobile phones such as iPads, Androids and tablets. If the game starts stalling on your mobile device reduce the graphic settings. Desktop players on the other hand won’t experience this problem but then again it also depends on the size of your graphics card. The house edge of the game is 3.4% or a 96.6% (RTP) return to player, and offers a maximum non-progressive jackpot payout of 64,000 coins.
If you have a close eye on your budget the reels can be spun from 25 cents up to 250 credits, making the game suitable to high-staked players as well. Now and again wins can be pretty darn good during the main game where you can win as much as 60 times your stake, don’t bank on it often but it makes the game even more entertaining and exiting to play. Just a friendly heads up, if you’re 30% up on your bankroll, cash out 70% or walk away. One thing I’ve noted is that the slots doles out wins like Father Christmas during the festive season but clams up after successive wins.
Once again NetEnt pushed the boundary with Magic Portals in the form of its wilds and scatters.
Magic Portals Wilds
Decent wins occur when 2 of the same icons land on the middle reel transforming the corresponding symbols into wilds.
Unlike most of the NetEnt slots the free spins mode is not triggered by a scatter symbol, instead it’s triggered by the free spins symbol (smart move, eh?). You’ll receive 10 free spins when the symbol pitches on reels 1 and 2 and if they land within the magic portal. Regrettably there are no multiplier wins attached to the free spins. But, instead of multipliers there are 4 portals which translates into meaner and bigger wins. The free spins mode can be re-triggered, however, it’s not easy to catch the free spins icon in the first place-patience is needed.
Before I played Magic Portals I had my reservations about the slots but once I started playing it I really warmed to it. NetEnt tried a new concept with its substituting wilds, it’s fun and lives up to the hype. As if by magic the RTP of the slots (96.6%) will keep the bankroll ticking over, hopefully you’ll trigger the free spins and land even bigger wins!
