The game offers only one bonus feature, a complex and rewarding free spins round.
Before we get to free spins, let’s talk about the book scatter. When this symbol lands on the reels, it opens to award up to 3 stars and a +1 multiplier which will be randomly allocated to one of the game’s symbols on the award board. The bonus round will activate when one of the symbols’ star meters is filled up.
You will get 5 free spins where extra book scatters will appear, and the triggering symbol is removed from play for the duration of the feature. Any other symbols whose star meters get filled while the feature is active will be “knocked out” as well, giving you an extra 2 free spins each time. Each symbol’s multiplier will only be applied once during free spins.
Magical reels slot is an enchanting experience, but does only having a single feature make it a one-trick pony? This is a great-looking slot with charming visuals and animations that add enjoyment to the gameplay.
Free spins is the only bonus feature, but the fact that you get to build up your potential for the bonus round in the base game adds something special to the whole experience. I enjoyed this more than Northern Lights’ 5 Star Knockout, which follows a similar format. I found this title to be more rewarding and entertaining. I wouldn’t rank this as a spectacular game, but it’s good for a good time, although including just one more bonus feature would have made a big difference.
