Everywhere you look to play slot games, you may find Ninja games. Ninja this, Ninja that, Ninja everything. So now, we are getting something new from Microgaming, entitled Ninja Magic. What? You think Microgaming is going to let others make money with their Ninja games but not them? Hmm! For a new game, the graphics, sounds and animations are nothing to shout about. There's nothing new in it either, nothing innovative or creative at all, except for being just another clone. Yeah, just as expected from Microgaming!
Ninja Magic is the Wild symbol, 5 of which pays 300x the total bet. Does it doubles wins? Nope. Does it come Stacked or Expanded? Nope. Is it a dumb Wild? Yep, a true blue dumb Wild! The Pot is the Scatter symbol, 5 of which pays 100x the total bet. Does it award a Free Spins game? Nope. Does it award any special feature? Nope. Hmm, yet another dumb Scatter? Yep! If you want a Free Spins game, then you need to get 3 or more dumb House (or is that a dumb temple?) symbols. You'll get the free spins but you won't get any payout for the symbols. Yep, yet another dumb symbol by Microgaming! The Lady Warrior pays 50x the total bet for 5 of her, the Ninja 37.5x, whilst all others from 25x down to 2.5x the total bet amount. So, what do you think of this paytable then? Yeah, right, low!
3 Free Spins Scatter symbol, which is the House or Temple, awards 1 free spin with a 1x multiplier. 4 Scatters award 2 free spins with a 2x multiplier, and 5 Scatters award 3 free spins with a 3x multiplier. But don't faint just yet. More is yet to come. In the next screen, you get to kill spiders (poor innocent spiders!) to win more free spins and multipliers. The maximum possible is 40 free spins with a 8x multiplier, which I think, could probably be achieved only by getting 5 Scatters. 3 Scatters could only get 38 free spins with a 6x multiplier max, as counted by all the exposed awards. More free spins cannot be retriggered. Hmm, I guess they had killed all the remaining spiders when we weren't looking.
Now let's see how good this Lady Warrior is against that evil Ninja. In my many plays on this game, I had managed to get the maximum of 38 free spins with a 6x multiplier, which finally paid me a nice 96x my total bet. Nice, but not even enough to satisfy my desire! 38 free spins, at a 6x multiplier, should pay nothing less than 150x my total bet! That 38 free spins were probably the best out of the other Free Spins games that I had gotten, yet it couldn't even exceed 100x my total bet amount. That is not good at all! All the other Free Spins games paid 0x up to 44x. Yes, zero times one time, less than 1x a couple of times, so that again tells you the kind of payouts this Ninja Magic can give you! A lot of hype and bull! My credits finally went bust after 400 spins of nothingness, so I left the game behind for good. Ninja Magic is no magic at all!
As typically of most Microgaming new games, this Ninja Magic proved to be yet another hyped up new release, promising new excitement, fun and entertainment, but delivering faded and withered goods instead. See if you like it, because I certainly don't!
