Magic Mushroom is quite possibly the best video slot to drop this 2019 Holiday season. Developed by Realtime Gaming (RTG), this video slot is available on Springbok Casino, Slotastic, and other brands that are powered by the developer. While it is also fantasy-themed, this title shouldn’t be confused with Yggdrasil Gaming’s Magic Mushrooms video slot. This video slot has a lot of features that make it standout from the similarly named title in addition to taking a completely different direction when it comes to its visuals and background music. In terms of availability, players should have no issues wagering on this title on numerous platforms. Aside from desktops/laptops running on Mac and Windows, the title is also available on mobile platforms. It should be noted though that the title is still pretty much a Springbok Casino exclusive as of this writing.
Magic Mushroom Review
Magic Mushroom is a 3 reel and 3 row slot that features 27 betting lines. Though it follows a different reel layout, the video slot still is much like other titles in that its betting lines pay from left to right. To trigger a win, a spin needs to result in the appearance of at least one of the same/matching symbol on each of the reels. As with a lot of RTG titles, the video slot allows players to configure their bets per spin by clicking on the ‘-’ and ‘+’ buttons on the Total Bet section of the slot. This allows players to set bets as low as R0.20 per spin to as much as R100. In addition to this, the slot also has a button that players can use to change the speed with which the reels spin. RTG has classified the slot as having low volatility. This means that players can expect low to medium-sized wins with this video slot. As for its exact RTP, Springbok Casino and RTG’s press releases has yet to disclose the percentage.
In terms of gameplay, Magic Mushroom has a Mushroom Wild symbol that substitutes for all other symbols and only appears on the middle reel. Aesthetics-wise, the video slot’s symbols are all beautifully rendered and feature images of fairies as well as items associated with fantasy/fantasy stories. These symbols include lutes, a golden spool of thread, fairies, and of course, the titular magic mushroom. When it comes to audio, the video slot has its background music muted by default. Of course, this shouldn’t mean that its audio is in any way bad. More than anything, the audio (when enabled) has a whimsical and fantastical air to it that helps make the video slot more immersive.
Special Features & Conclusion
Aside from the regular features and aesthetics, Magic Mushroom also has a special feature that’s sure to impress players. If a spin results in all rows of the middle reel showing Wilds then this will activate the video slot’s Respin Feature. Once activated, the Wilds will remain stacked in the middle reel and reels 1 and 3 will respin with a blank symbol as well as a randomly selected symbol each. With this, players could end up getting the slot’s maximum win which tops out at 540 times the total activating bet.
Players looking for a new video slot to wager on this holiday season will undoubtedly love Magic Mushroom. Aside from its visuals and audio, the title’s features make it relatively easy to understand and play. The fact that the title has low volatility also makes it great for players who enjoy longer play sessions and employ a more deliberate style of wagering. Perhaps the only knock on the video slot is the fact that it doesn’t have a jackpot and/or additional features that can further increase players’ chances of winning big. Despite this, the Magic Mushroom video slot is still worth checking out. Other than Springbok and Slotastic, online casinos that currently feature the video slot include Planet 7 Casino, Aussie Play Casino, Casino Max, and Dreams Casino (just to name a few).
