Ninja Magic is a Microgaming-powered slot with 5 reels and 40 paylines. Available to play on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, you can spin away from 40p to £50 per spin. It has a classic Chinese feel as it focuses on martial arts. You aim is to unleash the magical power within the ninjas to defeat your enemies.

Symbols on the reels include both a female and male ninja as well as spiders and wasps – Microgaming has produced better looking slots but the gameplay definitely stands out (more on that below). Look out for the Ninja Magic symbol which is the wild and doubles your win when part of a winning combination.

In terms of bonus features, it’s all about the Ninja Magic Bonus feature which is played when you get 3 or more temple scatters anywhere on the reels. 3 scatters will give you 1 free spins with a 1x multiplier whilst 4 scatters rewards with 2 free spins with a 2x multiplier. If you get 5 scatters, you will receive 3 free spins with a 3x multiplier.

However, you are then taken to a new screen in order to vanquish the mystical giant bugs where you can increase your free spins tally and multiplier value. You are then prompted to pick bugs from the 18 possible choices – you carry on making picks until the ‘Start Free Spins’ option is selected.

There’s a whopping 40 free spins to be won and a multiplier up to 8x so you need to get lucky with your big picks – I’ve managed to get 20 free spins with a 6x multiplier which resulted in a 545 times stake win. Most of the time, expect about 10 free spins with a multiplier ranging up to 4x.

I consider Ninja Magic to be a medium variance slot game with good wins available in the base game – the bigger amounts will almost definitely come in the free spins feature due to the possibility of the 8x multiplier. You can win 300 times your stake on every single spin so the feature can be quite lucrative.

Ninja Magic isn’t the best slot Microgaming has produced but definitely a good addition to their ever-growing portfolio – I would recommend you play some of their better titles such as the blockbuster-themed Jurassic Park or their cult classic Immortal Romance.
