The Great Gambini’s Night Magic is powered by Novomatic and can be played on all devices from 20p to £100 a spin. With a magic theme, it comes with 4 randomly triggered bonus features in the base game – there’s also a Free Spins feature where you’ll benefit from special symbols that are stacked and spread on up to all reels.
Visually, I must say The Great Gambini’s Night Magic is the best to date from Novomatic – set on a street at night, you will see Gambini to the side of the reels. With an enticing soundtrack, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q and J playing cards as well as potion bottles, pocket watches, magic trick books, crystal balls and treasure chests. There’s also a top hat wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter – it’s also the most rewarding giving you 25 times your stake for 5 across a payline.
After a losing spin in the base game, the magic powers of the illustrious Gambini can be revealed with 4 randomly triggered modifiers/features – here’s what you can expect:
- Guillotine feature – the guillotine will drop and reveal a winning combination. This can happen various times. It can also trigger the Free Spins feature if you’re lucky.
- Levitation feature – symbols will levitate off the screen with the Great Gambini adding new symbols to give you a winning combination.
- Reel Magic feature – reels will swap around to reveal a winning combination. This can happen various times.
- Quick Change feature – 1 or more symbols will shift in any direction to guarantee you a winning combination.
Now, The Great Gambini’s Night Magic also comes with a Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3 or more Free Spins scatters anywhere on the reels – 3, 4 or 5 scatters will give you 5, 10 or 15 free spins respectively. During the feature a special bonus symbol is awarded on each free spin.
Reel 3 (the middle one) is the magic reel – if your special symbol appears on reel 4, it becomes stacked to cover over the entire reel. It will also be copied over to reels 1 and 2. Now, the magic reel can even spread to reels 4 and 5 which will remain in place for the remainder of the feature – this means you’ll get the same symbol across all 5 reels. Finally, the great Gambini can appear on your last free spin to bestow additional free spins on you.
The Great Gambini’s Night Magic is visually brilliant and has lots of bonus features – it’s all about the Free Spins feature where plenty of free spins can be won. I like the magic reel as you can see the same symbol on all 5 reels if you’re lucky.
This makes it a lot easier to win the maximum 1,000 times your stake prize on each free spin (if you fill the reels with wilds). Medium variance, this is 1 of Novomatic’s better efforts in recent times and well worth playing. If you like the magic theme, Street Magic by Play ‘N Go is recommended as you can win 5,000 times your stake on each spin.
