Magic Forest Slot Review
An enchanted woodland setting is the backdrop to Magic Forest, a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot from Playson. This luck-themed slot comes with scatters, wilds, a free spins feature and jackpots of up to 5,000 times your line stake. You can play from 20p up to £100 per spin.
Magic Forest celebrates all things fortune related with four-leaf clovers, golden coins and horseshoes among the symbols spinning on the reels. The unicorn and eagle are the biggest paying symbols, offering payouts of 1,000 times your line stake if you manage to hit a 5 symbol combination.
The elfin beauty is the Wild symbol and substitutes for every other symbol apart from the scatter. The wild offers the biggest payouts with 5,000 times your payline bet on offer if you find 5 in a line. Four gives 1,000 times your line bet with three giving 200.
Unlike many slots from Payson, Magic Forest comes with a Free Spins Bonus feature which is triggered when 3 or more Leprechaun scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. Once this feature is activated you’ll be awarded 15 free spins. All wins during the round are subject to a 3x multiplier which means that all winning paylines are trebled. It’s possible to re-trigger 15 more free spins so keep an eye out for those lucky leprechauns.
Magic Forest also comes with a standard Gamble feature. You can double your win by correctly guessing the colour of a playing card. Guess the suit and you can quadruple your win. The visuals in Magic Forest are more impressive than some slots from the Playson stable. The symbols are nicely done and are set against a misty, woodland setting. The soundtrack also has a magical feel.
The play is extremely fast as is the norm with Playson offerings. The variance is on the high side so you’ll have spells where very little happens. You can win big though, especially when you manage to trigger the free spins feature. Playson slots don’t often come with bags of features so the free spins feature on offer here is a welcome addition.
The action is typically frantic and if you manage to find the elfin wild the payouts can be magic. If you like magical-themed slots, Pixies of the Forest by IGT is very popular and so is The Wish Master by NetEnt. However, I’d recommend Alice in Wonderslots (also by Playson) which is both enchanting and highly volatile.
