Playtech Just Launched Magical Stacks Slot Machine
Playtech has been announcing and launching a whole new bunch of games since the year just started. Everybody has been really excited about it (me including) since Playtech is one of the best and most professional developer companies in the online gambling business.
All of their new game have been promised to keep the players entertained and amused while gaining an incredible amount of profits. I will not lie to you, I would not expect less from Playtech since they have always kept their promises. Speak for the facts, many of their games have been placed at the top of the market many times.
The company has almost 17 years of experience building a huge portfolio with a vast range of games that have meet all of the player’s tastes, requirements and expectations. From the most traditional 5 x 3 grids with the most traditional features to many games inspired by movies, music, comics, sport personalities, showbiz celebrities and so on.
The theme of Magical Stacks seems to be inspired by the Japanese youthful culture, since the design has an air of a three dimensional game like Final Fantasy or something of the same sort. Besides having a 3D visual design, the layout has a background behind the grid that makes it look like an actual slot machine with an actual casino in the back.
The grid is colorful and bright, fully decorated with many of the Vegas traditional symbols like the watermelons, the cherries, the bar symbol and the triple sevens, as well as the traditional J, Q, K, and A poker cards.
Magical Stacks is based on a 5 x 3 traditional reel set upon 20 different and unique pay-lines to help you make the most out of the game coming across as many as the combinations possible.
What We Love
First, we will have to talk about the most traditional features in the game, the wilds and the scatters. The wild symbols will be represented with two pretty girls, one with pink hair, and another one with white hair. These symbols will work as your “jokers” as they are able to replace any of the symbols on the grid (except for the scatters) to help you make better and bigger combinations.
On the other hand, the scatters, represented with a cute white cat, will reward you with 10 free spins and a Dynamic Multiplier every time you manage to get three or more of them on the grid.
The Dynamic Multiplier will increase each time you get a winning during the free spins and decrease every time you don’t. The multiplier goes from 2x to 5x.
Last but not least, and definitely the most important feature in this game: The Mystery Boxes. These boxes could show up anywhere on the reels. Whenever you manage to get one or more of theme, these will all turn into the same symbol. This feature will allow you to make huge combinations to incredibly boost your profits.
What We Did Not Like
I could not say I did not like something for a fact out of this game, but there might be little things that I personally would have improved in it.
For instance, the soundtrack, it is decent, but not as good; the user’s interaction, maybe a pick feature or something like that would make the game unpredictable and more entertaining; finally, a better maximum payout. 250 times the bet just doesn’t cut it for me.
Worth Playing It?
Even though the game does not have the most amazing payout, it features a rather high RTP of 96.23%, which will grant you frequent winnings.
Besides that, the game has the features you need to keep you entertained for quite a bit while earning some money. Nevertheless, the Mystery Boxes are something I would totally look for in further games. Go ahead and take this one out for a spin. You might actually like it.
