Microgaming’s Arctic Magic Slot Review

The Arctic Magic slot from Microgaming is a 5 reel, 9 payline game that can be played from 9p to £45 per spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. High variance, it comes with a high value wild and double wild wins. There’s a Free Spins feature where you’ll play with up to 30 free spins with a trebling multiplier.

Arctic Magic Slot Theme/Symbols

The Arctic Magic slot game is rather beautiful as the reels bask under the Northern Lights. With a snowy mountain in the background and a gentle soundtrack, you will see glowing A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royal symbols on the reels. You’ll also see glowing animals which include foxes, foxes, deer, wolves and polar bears.

The polar bear is the highest value symbol giving you 0.33, 2,78, 11.11 and 83.33 times your stake for 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

Multiplier Wilds feature

The Arctic Magic logo symbol is the wild and replaces all symbols except the scatter – 2, 3, 4 or 5 in combination will give you 1.11, 22.22, 222.22 or 1,111.11 x stake! If the wild is part of a winning combination with other symbols, your payout will be doubled – this is known as the Multiplier Wilds feature.

Free Spins feature

Arctic Magic comes with a Free Spins feature – this is played when you get 3, 4 or 5 snowflake scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. A payout of 2, 5, 20 or 500 times your stake will be awarded with 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatters. Once in, you will receive 15 free spins.

All wins are subject to a 3x multiplier meaning wins are trebled – you can also retrigger the feature to give you a total of 30 free spins.

Arctic Magic slot verdict

The Arctic Magic game is undoubtedly beautiful to look at – no question about that. High variance, this supernatural adventure comes with an RTP of 96.1% which is good and a hit frequency of 31.37% (so a win in just under 3 spins).

In theory, filling the reels with wilds would result in a 10,000 x stake win – add in the 3x multiplier in the Free Spins feature and you could be walking away with 30,000 x stake for a screen full of wilds. However, the max win is capped at 3,333 x stake for each spin or free spin – that’s rather disappointing considering the high value of the wild symbol.

When it comes to gameplay, Arctic Magic doesn’t offer anything unique – the only thing worth mentioning is that it looks great. If you want a slot with more bite, Microgaming’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here slot is based on the TV series and offers 20,250 x stake payouts.
