Can the stars align for a big jackpot? That’s what you’ll be hoping for in Astro Magic, an astrology-themed slot powered by iSoftBet. Available on all devices, this 5 reel, 9 payline game comes with multipliers, free spins and special pick me bonus prizes of up to 550 times your stake. Play from between 9p and £90 per spin on all devices.
The design in Astro Magic has a space age feel – with the earth and stars in the background, you’ll see 12 symbols based on the signs of the zodiac and their constellation. The best of these is Pisces the fish which awards 25, 50, 200 or 1,000 coins if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on the same payline.
There’s also a wild that can appear on all 5 reels and substitute for everything apart from the scatter. You’re guaranteed a payout every time a wild lands – awards of 1, 10, 100, 500 and 1,000 coins are on offer courtesy of the wild.
Look out too for the scatter which awards 2, 5, 25 or 200 times your stake if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels on the same spin. The scatter doesn’t award a feature though. For that, you’ll need to hit the sun or crescent moon symbols.
Land 3, 4 or 5 of the sun instant bonus symbol and you’ll trigger the Instant Bonus feature. Click on the triggering symbols to reveal the number of free spins or a multiplier. Any multipliers are applied to your total stake, not to your wins in the free spins though.
Hitting 3, 4 or 5 of the moon awards the Galaxy Bonus feature – you’ll be taken to a new screen where you get to pick constellations and in the process win coin prizes. Pick well here and you could pocket a bonus of up to 550 times your total stake. You can trigger this feature in both the base game and the free spins round.
When we think of astrology we think of a manic Russell Grant or women of a certain age hoping to meet their elusive Mr Right, so our hopes weren’t especially high when we fired up Astro Magic. We were pleasantly surprised though. The visuals are very tastefully done and really rather good. As is the futuristic soundtrack.
The features stack up pretty well too. They’re not especially innovative but the combination of a potentially big paying picks round and free spins is decent enough. We still won’t be checking our horoscope when we pick up a paper this morning – we’d give Astro Magic a second look though. I also suggest you try some of iSoftBet’s other games with the pirate themed Skulls of Legend 1 of my favourites.
