Free Voodoo Magic slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Voodoo Magic slot by Pragmatic Play takes us into the world of traditional black magic, as many games have in the past. Elk Studios' Voodoo Gold is one of the best previously released of this theme, far better than Netent's now-discontinued Voodoo Vibes slot and in my view Esqueleto Explosivo 2 slot by Thunderkick. Here we have spooky music, background of a darkened room full of sinister specimens and the appropriate symbols of evil on the reels. Can our bankroll survive these spells or will it end up crushed like these bones?
On the reels...
There are 5 reels of 4 rows each with stacked symbols and 40 pay lines on Voodoo Magic slot. The Wilds can appear stacked on all reels and pay 12.5x for 5-of-a-kind, Witch 10x, Dragon 5x, Snake or Ram's Skull 3.75x with six card values paying 2.5 down to 1x for each full line. Scatters in the form of Vials appear on the centre 3 reels and we get Cards as the Mystery symbols but these don't appear unless in a feature. Speaking of which..
If you get just the 2 scatters on reels 2 and 3, you will get either of these two modifiers:
Mystery Curses - a random number of Wilds is added to the grid and any wins then paid.
Fortune Hex - all bonus and card value symbols are removed and medium to high symbols tumble down on to the grid until it is full, then any wins are paid.
We need 3 scatter on the centre reels to get in all cases 5 free spins. These all have a bonus guarantee amount and you will get one of 3 options:
Voodoo Spins - Mystery symbols are added to the reels and can transform into any symbol including Wilds. If you don't make 10x bet, it retriggers until you do.
Super Voodoo Spins - same as above, but you are guaranteed 25x bet minimum in the same way.
Mega Voodoo Spin - mystery symbols can only be medium or high, no card values. If you don't make 50x, then retriggers until you do.
Voodoo Magic slot has a good 96.50% RTP but the maximum pay is capped at 1000x bet! This is odd, as Pragmatic rate this game on the volatile side. The game graphics, sounds and animations are average at best and you do get regular medium wins in the base game via the stacked Wilds. The features are pretty dreary though, the modifiers for 2 scatters may pay alright on occasion, but the free spins you wait a while for are pretty poor. It simply leaves you hoping that you pick the 'Mega' Voodoo spins for a guarantee of 50x play, which in itself is hardly spectacular. There may be voodoo here, but there certainly ain't any magic...
