Join a master illusionist for a classic magic show in The Great Albini, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Foxium. Highlights of this performance include Mystery Box Respins where the boxes all transform into the same symbol. There’s also a bonus round that awards 12 free spins on 50 payline reels with stacked wilds, respins and 2x multipliers. Play on all devices from between 25p and £50 per spin.
There’s a vintage feel to the design here. A classic theatre stage forms the backdrop to the action. On the reels you’ll see circus style A to 10 symbols plus lucky cups, knives and a target, a canary and Albini’s assistant Lily. The bearded magician himself is the top payer. Land 3, 4 or 5 of Albini on 1 of the game’s 25 paylines and you’ll pocket an award of 2, 8 or 40 times your stake.
There’s also a wild which can land on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 only. As usual, the wild replaces all of the standard symbols. The Great Albini comes with a pair of special features.
Mystery Box Respin feature – this is triggered by landing a full stack of the Mystery Box symbol on the middle reel. Those Mystery Boxes lock in place. You’ll then receive 3 respins. Each time a Mystery Box symbol lands, it’s held and the number of respins resets to 3.
The feature continues until you’re out of respins or you’ve filled the screen with Mystery Boxes. With a wave of his wand Albini turns all the Mystery Boxes into the same matching symbol and a new payout calculation is made. If you get Albini, you could pocket 1,000 times your stake in total.
Free Spins feature - land the free spins scatter on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin and you’ll be awarded 12 free spins. These are played out on an expanded 6 row machine which offers 50 paylines rather than the standard 25. If a Lily symbol hits on the middle 3 reels, it expands and turns into a stacked wild. It also awards respins and a 2x multiplier boost if it forms part of a winning combination. This is known as the Lily feature.
If you don’t want to wait, you’ll have the option to buy the free spins via the Bonus Box feature, complete with the Lily wild extras. Just click on the Bonus Box to activate – 8, 10 or 12 free spins will cost you 100, 125 or 150 times your total stake.
A glut of magic-themed slots have hit the online shelves recently – such as Street Magic from Play ‘N Go. The Great Albini is one of the better ones. The visuals aren’t quite as good as some similarly themed releases but the features more than make up.
The Free Spins feature especially has the potential to be a dazzler when you land the expanding Lily wilds. Get on a good run with the respins and doubling multiplier and you can quickly conjure up a decent haul of coins – there’s up to 4,000 times your stake to be won on each spin with a 2x multiplier! The Great Albini puts on a good show here. If you enjoy the magic theme, then this performance is well worth seeing.
