We are all here once again to talk about yet another online video slot machine created by Playtech, one of the most popular and professional developer companies in the online gambling industry.
With almost 17 years of experience, Playtech’s best efforts can be spotted in the vast portfolio the company has. They have specialized over the time in meeting every player’s expectations, since they count with a huge range of games that go from the most conventional 5 x 3 grids to the most original and rare reels, inspire in many trademarked themes such as movies, comics, sport personalities, Hollywood celebrities and many more.
Magical Stacks theme was inspired in the Japanese culture. The graphic design of the game gave it an anime-like three dimensional air that kind of reminds me of Final Fantasy videogames. The original video slot machine features a traditional 5 x 3 reel that is set up with 20 different pay-lines to help you come across the best of the combinations available.
Many Vegas traditional symbols decorate the grid, such as the bar icon, the triple Sevens, the cherries, and the watermelon. There are also some original symbols, like the scatters and the wilds that are represented with a white cat, a pink haired girl and another white haired girl. All of the symbols that decorate the reel are bright, colorful and beautifully crafted. Even the traditional J, Q, K and A poker cards are made with a Japanese touch that make them look like Japanese characters.
What We Love
Just as it is most of the times expected from Playtech, this game’s visual design is amazing and spotless. Everything has been designed to make the game look like an actual land-based solid slot machine.
The first two features we should be talking about are the most traditional ones: The wilds and the scatters. The wilds, represented with the girl with the pink hair and the other one with the white hair, will work as your “joker” symbols, since these replace any other regular symbol on the grid to help you make even more combinations across the 20 different pay-lines.
On the other hand, the scatters, not only will reward you with 10 free spin rounds and the capability to be retriggered, but will also activate a Super Magical Free Spin Bonus which will bring you a Dynamic Multiplier that increases from 2x to 5x every time you get a win, or decreases down to 2x every time you don’t.
Last but certainly not least, the Mystery Boxes, the best special feature in this new game. Whenever you manage to get one or more Mystery Boxes (the ones with the interrogation sign), these will all turn into the same regular symbol, meaning you will be able to hit huge combinations and the greatest of winnings. This last feature is meant to boosts Magical Stacks’ profitability incredibly.
What We Do Not Like
I certainly could not say for a fact anything I did not like about this video slot machine, however, there might be a few things that, in my opinion, could have improved the game’s playability. For example, a little bit more of the player’s interaction with the game could have lured more audience to the game. Something like a pick feature to make the game more interesting.
Worth Playing It?
Of course! The fact that the game had the potential to be even more entertaining does not rule out the fact that is actually really fun. The Mystery Box and the Dynamic Multiplier during the Free Spin Rounds certainly boost the game’s playability and profitability. Do not hesitate, I believe this game is worth trying out.
