Now a Wombat’s got to get its kicks when it can and a bit of magic to try and boost my wallet meant Foxium’s Great Albini slot had my fur quivering. I couldn’t wait to clap my eyes on a card trick and a dove or too! Did I mention the 4,000 x your wager win potential? Now’s that’s magic.
Picture yourself among the guests at a classic Victorian magic show. The graphics are a long way from a simple game like the Rainbow 3×3 slot, so get comfortable and wait for the show too begin!
Here, the magic is all about trying to making you some cash, if you’re lucky! And with a bonus round where you play to win.
Look and Feel
The magic slot action takes place in a swanky theatre with grand curtains and lights. The great maestro, Albini, is standing on the left of the reels. This dude mutters spells as you play and occasionally swishes his wand. The game’s graphics are on the deluxe side and the game comes with some clever animation, the cherry on top, if you like. It reminds me of the Sunset slot from Fugaso in many ways- the mechanics of the reels I mean.
There’s some great jangly and atmospheric old show-style tunes to keep everything on the intriguing and up tempo side.
The great conjuring tricks take place over 4 rows, 5 reels and 25 pay-lines- so 5 more than games like the Pharoah slot machine from Inspired Gaming. To win, you just need some magic in your fingers to land three matching symbols across the reels.
The crew of this magnificent magic show are the high value icons on the reels including the Great Albini. The main gut, Albini, is a moustachioed gent with a swanky look. He’s worth a big 1,000 coins if you can conjurer up five of him on an active pay-line. Not only this, but the main man Albini lands on the reels stacked. What a decent bloke!
His sidekick, a cheeky looking top-hat totting assistant, Lily, is up there in the value stakes too. The magician’s bag of tricks are the high value icons including a canary, a knife throwing kit and trick cups.
An Ace through 10 of the card deck are the lower value icons, each with a pack of cards displayed behind them.
The game’s Wild icon is a sparkling gold framed “Wild” which substitutes for all the icons except for a duo of Scatters. The show-biz Wild only turns up on reels 2 to 5.
The Scatters are a dramatic Mystery Box and the Free Spins Bonus. Be sure to keep your eyes open for the special Lily Wild icon.
Mystery Box Re-spin This man of magic and mystery has a trick or two up his clever sleeves which will could make you a buck or two.
When Albini clicks his magical fingers, or you get lucky, a trio of Mystery Box icons will land on the middle reel and lock in place. Now the Mystery Box Re-spin drama begins with three re-spins. If further Mystery Box icons land, then further spins will be triggered, pushing the re-spins total back up to three. Any further boxes that land will be locked in place until new boxes stop landing. Kerching!
After all this spinning stops, the symbols in the Mystery Boxes are now revealed, and can be any icon except the Free Spins Scatter or Wild.
Lily Feature If you land a glamorous Lily Wild land she will expand on the middle three reels. This icon acts like a Wild and happily doubles the value of any wins you make while Lily’s on the reels. Better still, she’ll give you a free re-spin, until your winning streak comes to an end. She’s a generous Sheila, that’s for sure!
Lily is one heck of a side kick as this cash happy feature is active in the free spins games too.
Free Spins This game packs a brilliant winning punch during the free spins mode when the reels expand, upping the pay-lines to a mega 50! Now that’s worth having a hat of rabbits for.
Wave your wand and land three Free Spins Scatters on the middle three reels and enter your own free spins bonanza. Generously, this game kicks off with 12 spins. And don’t forget Lily’s special Wild feature is active in this mode.
Bonus Box feature There’s also a short cut to making a mint on this little slot stunner. If you’re prepared to pay a price, you can get 8, 10 or 12 free spins but watch out, this can be pricey.
The Great Albini slot packs a punch and has enough atmosphere and sheer showmanship to have me coming back for more. Roll up for the lucrative Mystery Box Re-spin and that surprisingly good Lily feature and prepare for a highly entertaining show.
