A stone road, flanked by pillars and trees for the backdrop to the action in Magic of Pandora. The reels are made up of heart, diamond, club and spade symbols as well as a clay vase, an eagle, a flaming torch, a dove and a hunky looking male. Pandora herself is the top payer. Land 3, 4 or 5 of her in combination and you’ll receive a payout of 1.6, 5 or 40 times your total stake.
The Magic of Pandora logo is the wild. This can land on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 only and substitute for all of the standard symbols. On any base game spin, you could benefit from 1 of the following modifier extras:
- Wild Reel feature – a snake can slither onto the screen and turn 1 or 2 of the middle 3 reels wild.
- Extra Wild feature – Pandora’s Box will open and drop an assortment of extra wilds onto the reels.
- Additional Paylines feature – look out for the spider which can increase the number of paylines up to 50.
- Mystery feature – this is a stack of mystery symbols that all transform into the same matching symbol.
Magic of Pandora also comes with a Free Spins feature – landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters on the same spin and you’ll receive an award of 1, 4 or 20 times your stake as well as 8, 12 or 16 free spins. You’ll then be awarded on of the Wild Reel, Extra Wild or Additional Paylines modifiers. Alternatively, you can pick and choose how long each modifier will be in play throughout the free spins. Pandora’s Box can open to award a re-trigger and 4 more free spins.
This ancient Greek tale is a very playable one. There’s a classy look to the visuals which are clear and crisp. There’s a good range of extras on offer too. The modifiers pep up the base game and the Free Spins feature offers plenty of opportunities.
There’s up to 1,000 times your stake to be won from each spin/free spin. If you play with 50 paylines, you could win 2,000 times your stake on each free spin! In the legend, opening the box proved to be a curse. Get lucky with the extras and Magic of Pandora can be anything but. If you like slots based on Greek mythology, Playtech’s Age of the Gods cannot be ignored.
