An American apartment block is the somewhat ordinary setting for Magic Building, a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot from Leander Games. This is no ordinary block of flats though as it offers up a free spins bonus where an extra stacked reel is added. Play from between 25p and £50 per spin.

Magic Building has a light-hearted feel – the visuals are cartoon style with a group of family members dominating the reels. The daughter, father, mother and son pay out between 250 and 500 times your line bet if you find a 5 symbol combination. They’re joined by playing card symbols from A to 9.
The family dog is the scatter – find 5 Fidos and you’ll win 150 times your total stake. Rounding out the main symbols is the lift attendant who is the biggest payer. He is the wild, substituting for all other symbols apart from the scatter and bonus. Five will net you an impressive payout of 1,000 coins.

The lift doors are the bonus symbol and the key to opening up the Crazy Elevator Free Spins Bonus feature – 3 bonus symbols will get you 10 free spins, four offer 15 with 30 free spins triggered if you find 5 bonus symbols.

The free spins game is played on a new set of reels where you’ll notice an elevator positioned to the left of the reels. After each spin has been paid, the elevator doors will open up to reveal a stacked symbol which will form the first part of a 6-reel combination. A second payout consideration will take place.

The lift attendant can appear in the elevator as a stacked wild which can certainly help your winning chances. Unfortunately, no extra free spins can be triggered during the round.

The graphics and animations in Magic Building are nicely done but the backing track may have you reaching for the mute button. There’s not a huge amount on offer in the features department – the Crazy Elevator in the free spins round can certainly help improve your winning chances.

Don’t expect to break the bank here though wit the variance is on the low side of medium. Magic Building is a perfectly serviceable offering, just don’t expect too much in the way of features. Solid and sturdy this building may be, just don’t expect anything particularly flashy. Leander Games has produced better slots in my opinion with Khepri and Octopus Kingdom recommended.
