Take a trip to ancient Arabia and try and unlock the treasures hidden in the Magic Book. Powered by Bally Wulff, this 5 reel, 5 payline slot comes with a bonus feature that offers up to 20 free spins as well as magic symbol which can expand to fill multiple reels. Play from between 5p and £10 per spin.
A minaret filled skyline forms the backdrop to Magic Book and the reels maintain that Arabian feel. Joining the Arabic styled playing cards are a magic carpet, scimitar, masked lady and sultan – land 5 of the latter for an impressive payout of 1,000 times your total stake.
The jewel encrusted book is the other symbol on show here – it serves 2 purposes, acting as both the wild and scatter. It substitutes for all other symbols but is also instrumental in triggering the game’s only bonus feature.
Land 3 or more books anywhere on the reels and you can look forward to the Free Games feature – you will get 10 free spins, complete with the magic symbol extra. Before the free spins start, 1 symbol will be selected at random. Whenever 2 or more of this symbol land during the feature, they will expand to fill the whole of the reel in which they appear.
This can lead to some impressive combinations and offers payouts to match, especially if you manage to hook a high value symbol as the special expander. Hope to see the trio of books too as they’ll get you another set of 10 free spins.
On the variance scale, Magic Book is on the high side. There will be plenty of lean spells when the coins will ebb pretty quickly. There are decent opportunities in the bonus round though, especially if you manage to re-trigger having secured the woman or sultan as the special symbol.
The visuals in Magic Book are better than in many Bally Wulff slots, conjuring up a warm feeling of Arabia. This slot isn’t overloaded with features but the free spins round is a good one. If you like plenty of variety in your games, then this probably isn’t one for you.
If on the other hand, you just want a simple game that’s easy to play then this Arabian adventure should fit the bill. Get lucky in the bonus round and you could be flying off with a magic carpet full of coins. If you like the theme, Playtech’s Sultan’s Gold is highly recommended.
