What we love most about NetEnt games is the thought and design that goes into them. They may not always be the most feature packed slots, but they are certainly eye catching and interesting to play. Magic Portals is a wizarding slot full of potions, spells and portals, and is already a firm favourite with players across the board. Let’s check out why and see if we can’t magic up some wins whilst we are there.
Magic Portals is a 5-reel, 25 pay line slot offering up a potion packed 96.6% RTP for witches and wizards alike to take advantage of. Looking like it is set inside some kind of magical book, the reels are packed full of mystical imagery. This includes wizards, witches, wolves, owls, orbs and what appears to be a dragon! Even the soundtrack playing along in the background lends an almost eerie feel to the game, building on the suspense as you play.
Bet Amounts – Betting at Magic Portals begins at just 25p per spin and can be increased up to £50 per spin if you choose. Amending your bets is really simple, because to the left you have the coin level and to the right the coin value. Simply adjust the sliding scale on each to reach your desired bet amount and the hit spin.
Wild Symbol – An almost wacky looking word depicts your wild symbol on Magic Portals. Each letter of the word wild has been twisted about and is fiery in design looking like it’s just spun out of a portal itself. It will substitute for all other symbols except the scatter.
Scatter Symbol – Your scatter symbol is depicted by the words ‘free spins’, again all twisted up and looking like they are spinning out of control. In order to trigger the bonus spins on Magic Portals, you need to land this symbol in the portals on reels 1 and 5.
Wild Portal Feature – Not content with giving you a great bonus spins feature which you will read about below. NetEnt went one step further and added a magic portal onto reel 1 and reel 5. Now, land yourself a matching symbol in both of these portals and you will magically turn all other matching symbols into wilds! This can be very fruitful if you land the right symbols and even on the lower pay outs it still a win isn’t it?
Bonus Spins Feature – To activate the bonus spins you do need to land a scatter symbol in both portals on reel 1 and reel 5! This can be difficult to achieve, but not impossible and when it does you will be rewarded with 10 bonus spins to play through. As the bonus round begins you will notice that all spaces on reel 5 have now become portals as well. Meaning if the symbol on reel 1 matches any or all of the symbols on reel 5, you have got some potentially big wins to be made. Luckily for you the bonus spins can be retriggered on numerous occasions and with the addition of the extra portals, you may be in with a bigger chance of this occurring.
Absolutely stunning in design and gameplay, NetEnt always manage to pull it out of the bag and Magic Portals is no different. We just didn’t tire of watching the reels spin, the wins land and those portals activate. Speaking of wins, main game wins usually erred on the lower side, but they came quick enough that we didn’t really mind. When the bonus game hit however, that really changed things up and it made waiting around for those scatters to land in just the right place worth it.
