Simsalabim is a magic-themed slot game, brought to us by NetEnt. It has five reels and 25 paylines with bets starting from just 1p per line. The magician has got plenty of tricks up his sleeve, and inside his hat, too! Amongst card tricks and intriguing chests, the hypnotising magician and his magic hat are the stepping-stones into the bonus features of the Simsalabim slot.
What is Simsalabim, you ask? It’s the German version of ‘Abracadabra!’ Magicians will exclaim this word before they reveal their mesmerising tricks and spells, so it is very fitting in this game, which is all about the illusions.
Perfect Your Spells
It would be daft to walk out on stage without knowing exactly what you’re doing, so make sure you take a little time to prepare your bet. Know exactly how much you are betting and what it covers, then you can don your magician’s hat and make those reels spin.
You have 25 paylines to play on in the Simsalabim slot, and you can either play all of them with each spin, or a select number. If you want to change the number of paylines to keep active during your game, use the green buttons either side of the ‘lines’ meter to adjust them.
Next, you can decide on a coin value. The minimum bet is 1p per payline and the maximum is £1. Bear in mind that your coin value will be multiplied by the number of paylines in play to create your coin bet.
Want to add some extra thrills to your magic show? An increase in the bet level will stake additional coins on each payline. Whilst it is automatically set to one, it can be increased up to 10, but this value will be multiplied by your coin bet, too.
If you want to keep track of what your total bet looks like, it will be displayed just below the spin button. So, once you’re happy with it, hit spin and make some magic!
To win with the Simsalabim slot machine, you will need to match three or more identical symbols along an active payline, starting from the furthest left reel.
The highest-value symbols are the magician’s belongings. His hat with a blue spell sparkling out of it is worth the most. Top prizes for a five-hat match across a payline could be up to 1000 times your line bet.
You could be looking at a payout of 500 times your line bet amount if you can land five of the blue chain-fastened chests across an active payline.
The rather confused-looking bird in a golden cage is worth up to 300 times your line bet value, and the five-card hand could pay up to 200 times the line bet for matching five of a kind.
We’ve got the usual suspects as low-value symbols here, the card values. From Jack through to Ace, top payouts could reach between 100 and 150 times your line bet.
The magician has conjured up three great bonus features, to help you create your own kind of magic in your game.
The Scatter symbol in Simsalabim resembles a dice, featuring something different on each face. This magical cube has two benefits.
Landing two or more of them anywhere on the reels can award you a prize which is multiplied by your total bet, up to 200 times!
If you land three or more, you can also trigger the free spins round, during which all wins are trebled.
You will see the magician swinging his hypnotic watch. This is the wild symbol; it can substitute for any of the standard symbols, to help create and extend winning combinations across active paylines.
Landing two or more wilds on a winning line will also reward you separately, up to a maximum of 7500 times your line bet for a full wild payline.
Pulling a rabbit out of a hat is one of the oldest tricks in the book so, of course, it had to be included in the Simsalabim slot.
Matching three or more bonus bunnies from left to right on the reels can activate the bonus feature.
Click on the hats to reveal the prizes inside them. Keep clicking until you find a hat with no bunny inside, the feature will then end, and you can return to the standard game.
The prize values inside the hats will be on an equivalent level to the value of your bet.
A Spellbinding Slot
We have been treated to a fantastic production from NetEnt with the Simsalabim slot game. From the visuals to the sound effects and the joyful chimes which accompany each win, this is a magical slot in a league of its own.
It’s funny (the characters are comical) and the bonus features are fantastic. It’s great to see that the bonus features have been given some extra substance and excitement with multipliers, as well as the usual free spins and wilds. The ‘pick & click’ game is a great addition, too.
Return to Player (RTP) in the Simsalabim slot is 97.5%.
