Magic Shoppe 3D video slots developed by Betsoft has 25 paylines, 5 reels and pays a top non-progressive jackpot of 513,000 coins. The symbol that pays the top prize is the wild, 5 of them on an active line at the maximum bet pays 12,000 coins.
The graphics are darn good plus it offers a boatload of exciting features that players can sink their teeth into. The slots can be played on mobile phones such as Androids, iPhones, iPads, or tablets for free or for real cash.
“We are pleased to add MAGIC SHOPPE to our Slots3™ collection. The art style brings you into the mysterious mood in the Shoppe, featuring glyphs and other arcane symbolism to enhance the theme. We love the free spins round that guarantees a win or feature trigger, every time. We are confident that players will enjoy this game and its unique functionality.” Mark McKeown, Betsoft’s V.P Sales and Marketing.
The average payout return percentage to the player (RTP) is 96.4% making it a potential big money spinner on every spin! The theme of the slots brings the arcane to life.
Paying symbols that appear on the reels are celestial boxes, cards from 10 to A, knives, skulls with incantations on them, silver coins, and the magician’s hat. There’s a bunch of in-play bonus features such as a Free Spins feature with multiplier wins, substituting wilds and scatters.
The soundtrack of Magic Shoppe has an eerie ring to it but it complements the theme of the slots well.
In terms of playability the coin range is 0.02 up to 1, a Max Bet button is there for high-staked players an Auto Play and Gamble feature (Double Up). The latter option allows you to double all your wins but it’s a 50/50 chance. Pick the right one (‘Heads’ or ‘Tails’) you’ll win, pick the wrong one you lose.
To find out more about the slots click on the ‘?’ in the bottom right hand corner of your screen. It tells you which icons pays the biggest cash prizes and how the free spins bonus mode is activated.
The wild symbol is the Magic Shoppe there’s more to it than what meets the eye. It turns the Moon Box, Sun Box and Magic Wand into wilds boosting wins by a hefty margin. It replaces all the other symbols except the Magic Wand, Moon Boxes and scatters.
There’s only one bonus round and it is the free spins feature. The free spins mode is played when 3 or more Sun Box or Moon Box symbols appear any position on the reels.
The free spins are awarded as follow:
- 3x Sun Boxes award 3 free spins.
- 4x awards 6 free spins.
- 5x Sun Boxes awards 12 free spins.
In the Moon Box free spins you’ll get the following:
- 3x Moon Boxes gives 3 free spins.
- 4x Moon Boxes gives 6 free spins.
- 5x Moon Boxes awards 12 free spins.
The nice thing about the free spins feature is that if you don’t receive a cash prize on a free spin you’ll trigger a feature. Either way it’s a win-win which is great to be honest. At the lower bet levels it will take around 80+ spins to trigger the free spins.
It gets better! Should another 3 scatters (Sun Box or Moon Box) pitch during the free spins another bunch of free spins will be awarded and the Magic Wand and Celestial Boxes are transformed into wilds. In other words, it is a re-triggerable free spins feature that really pays well. It takes a few money spins to trigger it since it’s a low to medium variance slots. The higher the coin range the more volatile the game becomes.
Betsoft’s Magic Shoppe is a cracking slot that can really pay well, I find that it pays a pretty penny at higher coin ranges. Although it can be played by low rollers I think it’s one of those games where you get what you put in. That said, caution is still advised though because the free spins feature is not triggered easily.
