Permainan Magician’s Secrets – pragmatic play

The mention of the word ‘magician’ brings to mind the image of an illusionist wandering the stage with a dedicated but silent assistant for a few minutes, hyping tricks that end up lasting about 10 seconds. However, the trick of the stage was not in the mind of Pragmatic Play slot games when they designed their Witch’s Secret online slot. This one delves into the more mysterious elements of the craft, turning reality into fantasy as they say. Completing this shift in reality will require exploiting one, or both, of its two free spin features where sticky or expanding wild multipliers emerge as if from ether.

Located in what was supposed to be a room in a witch’s residence, it seemed like a conducive place to explore the mystical side of life. The large game box takes up a lot of space, but around the edges plenty of books can be made, while the neat glass dome roof allows the overcast night sky to peek through. In addition, when you see rooms stacked on the ceiling with books like this, do you ever wonder how many of them have actually been read? Perhaps all, perhaps no one, could say, however, the mass of books helped create the hang-out effect of a 19th-century male scholar.

Moving on to the technical aspects, and Witch’s Secret is played in a 6 reel, 4 row game panel, providing 4,096 ways to win. This is a highly volatile slot, where the base game can feel like patiently stirring the cauldron before a drink can be released during free spins. Playable on any device, the stakes range from 10 p/c to £/€100, while the variable RTP has the most optimal setting of 96.5%.

Clicking on the paytable info reveals ten regular, wild and scatter pay symbols. Payouts start with four tiles of a suit (diamonds, sticks, hearts, spades), orange gems and potions which are worth 0.8 to 4 times the stake for a winning combination of six symbols. These are replaced by premium swords, trophies, shields and book symbols that pay 6 to 100 times your stake for six of a kind wins. The magician is featured on the wild symbol, appearing on all but the first and last reels to replace any other symbol except the scatter. The wilderness is also at the center of each of the three features discussed next. Magician’s Secrets : Magician’s Secrets Slot

As mentioned, the wild is a key ingredient in the Witch’s Secret broth, evolving randomly in the base game while having two special powers in the free spins bonus round.

Expanding Wilds
When wilds land in the base game, it’s possible they expand to cover all positions on their respective reels. Also, the wild will add a random multiplier x2 to x10 to the total win if it expands.

Dime Free Spins
The scatter symbol appears on all reels, and landing 3 or more of them at once triggers the free spins. Additionally, when 4, 5, or 6 scatters are seen, players collect a payout worth 20x, 200x, or 2,000x their bet. Once the free spins are triggered, players can choose one of two options:

Expanding Wilds – Selecting this option grants 10 free spins. In this bonus round, the respin is triggered when the wild symbol hits reel 3 or 4 and expands. For each respin, a x1 multiplier is added to the growing wild and applied to each win. Landing 3 or more scatters during a spin grants an additional 10 free spins.
Sticky Wilds – Selecting this bonus round gives 8 free spins. At the start of the feature, one symbol is chosen at random, and if it lands on reels 2, 3, 4, or 5, it turns into a wild symbol. Not only that, but these symbols also remain on the screen for the rest of the feature. When the entire reel is full of wild symbols, +3 additional free spins are awarded.
Buy Bonus
If Witch’s Secret comes with this option in your jurisdiction, players can purchase free spins at any time of the base game at a cost of 100x their total bet.

Magician’s Secrets : Slot conclusion
So, have you found out what the magician’s secret is now No, neither do we, though we didn’t have an unpleasant time trying to figure it out. As usual from Pragmatic Play, Magician’s Secrets has the glossy sheen we hoped for, bold visuals, with effects as subtle as you’d like. The studio doesn’t go into town on a theme, preferring to see the surface rather than actually digging and getting into the skin. Regardless, Magician’s Secrets is an interesting game, with a reliable stats list, typical of Pragmatic Play slots – provided you play the version that offers the most generous RTP.

Features follow the same pattern as the rest of the game in that they work well without being overly inventive. Players benefit from expanding wilds and random multipliers in the base game, although it feels like Witch’s Secret was built with the bonus buyer, aka the streamer crew, in mind, and having the choice of two free spins rounds is always welcome. Each bonus round has its advantages, so it’s the player’s choice whether they prefer a longer and less stable (probably) growing wild option or a shorter and sharper one. Both are limited in how much magic they create, with 5,000x the bet win limit placed on them. Hit the limit, and any bonus rounds you participate in will expire.

In the end, Magician’s Secrets emerged as a viable option for some magical games. It’s capable of doing what it does, throwing the size of a player’s choice into the bargain, though a lack of imagination means the game fails to make much of a lasting impression. All told, Magician’s Secret felt more like a middle-class illusionist who enjoyed performing tricks rather than a student of arcanum tearing the fabric of existence to extract its mysteries.
