It’s not too common thing that a 3-rel, classic slot having a theme and this is not just manifested in the main symbol but the whole game is built around it. 5X Magic is such game and got an illusionist, magic art subject. It has a decent background image with a stage and curtains and all of the traditional (bars) and specific (magician hat, conjurer) symbols looks great enriched with little, funny animations like the rabbit in the cylinder or the flying white doves at winnings. It was really a pleasant surprise for me how this game’s view is compact and wisely designed.
For the 3 reels, 5-payline is attached and other little features separate it from the real traditional slots. 5X is the main symbol and can pay for a good line 2500-5000 coins depending what winning line completed. For example the center line is worth 2500 credits but if 3 such figures land on the 5th line (starting from left bottom to right upper) mean the Jackpot of the game. 5X’s other function is to substitute other symbols and if one of them complete a winning combination gives 5 times more for the prize and 2 of them multiply the win with x25 value. Magician Hat figure is the Scatter and can pay if just 2 Hats arrive on a payline (x2) but a full line of it award 25 times of total bet. From the ‘normal’ emblems Magician presents the most with paying out x50 of line bet.
Some of the unexpected extras really can give a plus to the gaming experience and the bankroll too. Though as I’m used to other such machines, here also have some longer stretches without any worth mentioning winnings but there are successful which bring back more than an everyday slot machine would do. I usually play with it at €0.10 coin value per line either with 1 coin or 2 coins but so far I haven’t had success to get three 5X on a line (by the way if it occurred it would be at least €250[€500] or max. €500[€1000] which really would make my day) but several times the double 5X could cause me some very nice return especially counting it’s a 3-reel slot.
Overall, 5X Magic is a very good little game with surprisingly great payout potentials and basically good payout habits. I just hope it will hold something bigger for me in the near future and I haven’t seen yet what it’s capable of. A recommended game at least to try out.
