Magic Spins slot REVIEW
Magic Spins ReviewWe appreciate that Wazdan is always trying to push innovation, as they experiment with new things in their ongoing Hold the Jackpot range. This is also the case with Magic Spins™. A quick glance at the highly unusual reel setup is enough to understand that you’re in for something special, and the 4 big corner positions, as well as the even larger mega position in the center, come with special symbols that are carried over into the Hold the Jackpot bonus.
Regular symbols pay anywhere, which is basically a scatter pay system, and wins up to 150x can be won also in the base game. The Hold the Jackpot round comes with innovative Collect to Infinity™ Collector symbols, as well as other special symbols, and filling the grid awards the 2,500x Grand Jackpot. The cosmic theme is neatly done, and it goes well together with the gemstones that fill the grid.

Magic Spins™ Slot Features
You win by landing 10 to 22+ matching symbols anywhere in view, and the premium symbols consist of ornamented gemstones that pay between 50 to 150 x your stake for 22+ in view. In addition, you can land wild symbols that step in for pay symbols to help create and/or improve wins.
The Hold the Jackpot Bonus Game is the main feature, and you need 6+ bonus symbols in view to trigger it. You can land special bonus symbols on the big and mega reel positions, and these become sticky for up to 10 respins. The countdown number is assigned randomly, and it’s visible on the relevant symbols. Special bonus symbols (see below) can start to do their thing also in the base game, but you need to trigger the Hold the Jackpot round to actually win anything from them.
The Hold the Jackpot Bonus plays out with 29 reel positions that spin individually, just like the base game. You start with 3 respins, and the triggering symbols are already sticky in their respective positions. Each new non-blank symbol resets the respin tally to 3 again, and filling the whole grid awards the 2,500x Grand Jackpot.
Regular cash symbols appear in the regular 1x1 reel positions, while Collector, Jackpot, Mystery and Increasing Value symbols can appear in the 4 big 2x2 corner positions. The central 3x3 Mega reel is reserved for Mega Collector, Magic Mystery and Mega Increasing Value Cash symbols. Here’s an overview:
Cash symbols - land with prizes between 1x-5x your stake.
Increasing Value Cash & Mega Increasing Value Cash symbols - land with prizes of 3x-7x (or 5x-10x for the Mega version), and their values increase by the bet size for up to a 10 spins countdown.
Mystery symbols - will turn into a random bonus symbol at the end of the feature.
Magic Mystery symbol - awards 1 of 4 jackpots, including the Magic Jackpot, or it turns into a Mega Collector.
Collector & Mega Collector - both are assigned a random countdown number up to 10, and they collect the values from adjacent regular cash symbols until the countdown reaches zero. If they land with the Collect to Infinity™ feature, the collection goes on as long as the bonus game lasts.
The Mini, Minor and Major Jackpot symbols - pay 20x, 50x and 150x your stake respectively, and the 500x Magic Jackpot is only available via the Magic Mystery symbol.
Finally, non-UK players, and anyone eligible, may purchase 4 different tiers of the Hold the Jackpot Bonus from the in-game menu. Here’s an overview:
Low volatility - pay 50x your stake for 6+ triggering Cash symbols, as well as 1 guaranteed Mystery symbol.
Standard volatility - pay 100x your stake for the same as above, plus 1 Collector symbol with countdown number 5.
High volatility - pay 250x your stake for the same as above, plus 2 Collector symbols with countdown number 10.
Extreme volatility - pay 500x your stake for 6+ triggering Cash symbols, 2 Collect to Infinity™ symbols, as well as 1 Mystery and 1 Magic Mystery symbol.
The 200 Spins Magic Spins™ Slot Experience
You get a decent taste of the base game, before we purchase the Extreme version of the Hold the Jackpot Bonus Game at 1:41. The feature plays out for the remainder of the 3:39-minute highlights video, and you can check it all out for yourself by hitting the play button below.
The unusual reel setup, combined with the pay anywhere system, may seem a bit confusing at first glance. However, the main thing to remember is that you can win up to 150x your stake from regular symbols.
We like that the special bonus symbols can start their “magic” already in the base game, giving you a head start if the bonus game triggers.
The visual presentation is pleasant and calming, with the symmetric grid set against the starry backdrop. The Hold the Jackpot Bonus Game comes with more than enough special symbols to keep things interesting, and the new Collect to Infinity™ feature is a highlight in that regard. Cracking the 2,500x potential is most likely done by filling the grid, but you can certainly close in on the hard-capped max win via the smaller jackpot symbols as well.
