Magic Crystals is a jewel-themed slot powered by Pragmatic Play. Bonus gems on offer in this 5 reel, 243 ways to win game include double wild payouts as well as a bonus feature that awards between potentially unlimited free spins with all payouts subject to a multiplier up to 6x. Stakes range from between 30p and £150 per spin.

A dark cave is the setting for the action in Magic Crystals – there are no playing card symbols on view, all of the imagery matches the theme. The 4 uncut precious stones form the lower value symbols. Their cut and polished equivalents make up the higher value quartet.

The most lucrative is the shiny emerald which awards 250 coins if you land 5 in combination. It’s worth remembering here that with the 243 ways to win game engine, winning combinations are formed when the same symbol lands on adjacent reels from left to right.

The dark obsidian stone is the game’s wild – it replaces all other symbols apart from the scatter. Whenever the obsidian wild forms part of a winning combination, that payout is boosted by a 2x multiplier and doubled.

The gold symbol is the scatter – land 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature and be awarded 15, 20 or 25 free spins. All winning combinations created during the feature will benefit from a 3x multiplier and are trebled.

Better still is if the winner includes a wild as the 2x and 3x multipliers are combined to potentially very impressive effect (i.e. a 6x multiplier). You can also win more free spins if you get 3 or more gold symbol scatters during the feature – there is no limit to how many extra free spins you can win!

Pragmatic Play like to keep things simple in their slots and Magic Crystals is no exception. The design is solid as always with the futuristic sounding backing track a nice complement. The features are as sturdy as we’ve come to expect too. The doubling wilds help things tick along nicely in the base game. The trebling multiplier offers even better potential in the feature. The feature isn’t the easiest to trigger but can offer some sparkling rewards when it does.

Get lucky with those obsidian wilds in the free spins feature and Magic Crystals can turn into an absolute gem of a slot. If gems are your thing, I highly recommend NetEnt’s Starburst which is a must for slots players.
