A creepy castle, a bloke dressed in robes and a cauldron, Great Book of Magic slot sounds like an average night down my local! With such a familiar setting and cast of characters, how could I not dip my toe into these uncanny waters? I have just come off the Faerie Nights slot and that’s hardly your standard walk down the high street, so I was well prepped for this game.
Wazdan are the brains behind this magic-themed game with an enhanced Free Spins game. Was this magical enterprise going to boost my wallet or leave me with one hell of a slot hangover? Let’s cast our eyes over this magic book and find out what was in store for us.
Look and Feel
This enchanting slot is set in a deserted castle room with an open window looking onto a dark night’s sky. Your game unfolds on fancy framed reels with a motley collection of this wizard’s pets and tools of the trade. It looks like the fella from the Balthazar’s Wild Carnival slot would have a field day on this one- that’s another game to try if you are a Hairy Potter type like me.
Great Book of Magic slot looks a million dollars. The creative types behind this game have pulled out all the stops to produce a game that looks glossy and pretty darn smart. So there’s a big tick for Wazdan on the graphics front but what does this easy on the eye treat offer to make us a buck or two?
There’s even perky music to give you the buzz and energy to crack on with making wins.
Great Book of Magic slot plays out over 3 rows, 5 reels and 20 pay-lines. Not as many as the 7 Chakras slot machine from Genii in other words, but around average we’d say.
Because new slots are smarter just like their players, you can make your own brand of magic across all your mobile devices- don’t feel confined to your desktop.
The top dogs in the icon stakes are the white-bearded wizard and the deserted castle where he performs his spells. The mid value icons are the wizard’s pets, or are they his ingredients? There’s an owl and a snake- let’s hope they’re not going into the cauldron- I make a stand on eating feathers!
The lower value icons are the standard Ace through 10 of the card deck in colourful form.
The game’s Scatter is the title’s Great Book of Magic, the leather-bound tome containing your destiny.
Land a three or more Scatter spell books on the reels and trigger the bonus Free Spins game and get your winning ways under sail with 10 freebie games. Not only can you get on a nice run here, you can also re-trigger your free spins by landing a further trio of Scatters. Eh, that’s magic that is.
Before you can get carried away with those nice free spins, you will see a standard icon, selected at random, that will become a special icon. When this newly chosen icon lands on the reels, it automatically expands to big up your chances of making line wins.
Great Book of Magic slot is a perfectly formed gem of a game in the looks department. But that said, I did find its single bonus game a touch limited. The simple enhanced special icon touch did grease the wheels and helped to boost wins… but this game feels like there’s more to give. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see this game return with some extras in the future, but that’s a guess, I’m having a day off from my crystal ball!
