Reels Turn Magic with Magic Jester Slot from Novomatic
The established Austrian software developer Novomatic has just released a brand new title inspired by medieval royal courts and jesters who used to entertain noblemen.
You will be entertained too while playing the 5-reel 10-payline Magic Jester slot providing you with innovative and rewarding bonus features and if you are into the stories from the Middle Ages you will enjoy its aesthetics too.
It may strike you as a bit awkward that high value symbols are depicted as icons typically seen in classic slot machines, but the overall appearance of the game is quite decent.
Besides playing card symbols delivering low value awards, you are to collect as many sevens, bells, watermelons and cherries as you can as they stand for high paying symbols.
What We Love
We love the retro appeal of the game not only because of its theme, but classic slot symbols are truly nostalgic. We also love an easy to use interface with all controls easily accessible. The jester standing for Wild substitutes for all other symbols and helps you create more winning combinations.
What we like the most about Magic Jester are its Magic Reels, a bonus feature which turns your high value symbols into double or triple whenever one of your reels goes magic.
The Magic Reels feature is active on each spin and you can get from one up to five Magic Reels, meaning that you can hit up to 15 identical symbols on a winning line. Double or triple Wild can be highly useful if you are lucky enough to hit them as you can create multiple winning combinations at once.
What We Do Not Like
Although the game offers an innovative bonus feature, we have to mention its drawbacks starting from only 10 paying lines which is quite limiting when it comes to creating winning combinations.
Besides, to hit a jackpot you need 15 identical symbols instead of five of a kind, so you need five Magic Reels in a single spin to win the maximum payout. It has never been easy to win a jackpot, but with Magic Jester the top prize seems impossible. The game does not offer the free spin feature either.
If you are into innovative bonus features, you might find Magic Jester interesting because of its Magic Reels, especially if you manage to hit multiple winning combinations at once.
However, the lack of a bonus game and free spins and low payouts standing at only 80 coins or so for a standard five of a kind combination make this game quite unattractive.
It is available both in online and mobile casinos, so you can give it a try and you may hit some nice awards if you are not bothered by its disadvantages.
