Magic Portals is a mystical slot, developed by NetEnt. It has 5 reels and 25 paylines, with bets starting from 25p a spin. With warlocks, wizards and ominous animals amongst the reels, the main excitement comes from the actual powerful portals. These portals are the gateway to the special features and are in action with every spin, so a bonus could strike at any point in this Magic Portals slot game.
This slot is another quality production from NetEnt. Characters which look like they have been pulled from a video game, 3D symbols and a glowing frame around the magic portals make for a visually stunning game. Up to 64,000 coins can be won in this game, and free spins can be re-triggered if you have a lucky landing during the feature. Let’s see how the best wins can be made from this cinematic slot game.
Prepare for the Portals
All 25 paylines are fixed in the Magic Portals slot, so they will be in play with every spin.
Bets start at a coin value of 1p per payline, which is multiplied by all active paylines, creating a minimum bet of 25p per spin. Use the green buttons to either side of the coin value box to adjust the value, up to a maximum of £1 per payline, or £25 per spin.
In addition to the coin bet, you can choose to boost the level of the bet. In short, this is equivalent to adding extra coins to each line. Increasing the bet level will increase your stake, but should you win, these wins will be multiplied by your bet level, too. It should be automatically set to 1 but goes up to a maximum level of 10.
Once you have decided on your total bet, make sure you double check you are happy with the value, which is shown just beneath the spin button.
If it’s all good, get spinning and jump into those magic portals.
The Portal’s Prizes
Paylines are played from left to right, so your winning symbol matches will need to start from the leftmost reel. Match three or more of the same symbols on one of the 25 paylines and you will win; match five of a kind for the top payouts.
The most valuable symbols in Magic Portals are the characters.
A red-headed female with the fiery orange eyes can pay out up to 500 times your coin bet if you land five of the mystical women on a payline.
A very serious looking man with green glowing eyes in a green frame can award up to 300 times your line bet if you can match five along a payline.
Five of the blue-haired females along the reels can award you 200 times your coin bet.
Next in the pecking order are the animals. We’ve got a roaring dragon, what looks like an owl coming for you with its claws and a wolf with a silver pattern on its head.
Top payouts for these creatures range from 125 to 175 times the line bet for landing five-of-a-kind.
The Magic Portals lower value symbols look like a variety of crystal balls. Filled with fire, plasma and ice, perhaps, these powerful balls can award between 50 and 100 times your coin bet as top payouts.
A combination of three special features works together perfectly to bring you many opportunities to boost your prize fund. Let’s take a look, shall we?
Before we get stuck into the bonus features, let’s be sure you know where the magic portals are. The glowing rings in the middle of reels 1 and 5 are said portals, so let’s see what they can do.
If two matching symbols stop in both of the magic portals at the same time, you will experience the Wild Transformation. The magic portals will then transform both of those symbols, as well as any other matching symbols on the reels, into wilds.
Remember, wilds can substitute for any standard symbols in order to create and extend winning paylines.
There is potential for big wins here, if you can land a handful of wilds!
Your free spins symbol is pretty easy to spot, as it’s got it written on.
If you can manage to land these symbols in each of the magic portals at the same time, you will trigger 10 free spins.
During these free spins, there is potential for you to trigger more if you have another lucky landing.
The Portal to Excitement
All points considered, the Magic Portals slot is the perfect balance of classic and modern. The features themselves are traditional to slots, but the way in which they are activated and executed are unique.
The theme of the game is great, too, mirroring something from a video game which is likely to entice those who are seasoned gamers. Graphics are fantastic throughout the game, giving us almost movie-like visuals, which of course, are fantastic.
Return to Player (RTP) value of this slot is 96.64% and it has a low to medium variance.
NetEnt have a whole host of fantastic slots, particularly their video slot collection. Have a read up on Jumanji, Gonzo’s Quest or The Invisible Man to see what else they are capable of.
