The Great Gambini’s Night Magic slot Review
The Great Gambini’s Night Magic is another Green Tube by Novomatic video slot game with some unique features not found in many magic-themed games. It would be worth the effort to find out more about these features when deciding on a video slot to entertain and stupefy players with some great payouts.
Magicians might not have the same air of mystique and wonder as it once had, and the ability to do magic tricks is not as sexy as one might believe, However, with The Great Gambini’s Night Magic, it is precisely what one wants in a video slot game!
The Great Gambini’s Night Magic stars the titular Great Gambini as he performs feats of illusion to a wondering audience of one in a background of dark streets. With 5×3 reels spin to land winning combinations on 20 paylines, the slot displays visually exciting graphics and animations as it pays out up to 1000x the line wager to its players. With a minimum bet of £0.20, it is a cheap thrill indeed. Add to that the prospect of winning a jackpot, and players can look forward to extended play.
The bet range for this game is £0.20 to £100, or line bets from £0.01 to £5. Given this very acceptable risk for a high variance game, the thrill is in the payouts.
For the base game, the object is to get five in a payline from left to right for any the symbols, which include the J, Q, K, and A playing card symbols, which are the low paying ones, or the magician’s book, pocket watch, potion, crystal ball, or magic chest, which are high-paying symbols. In the best case scenario, you want the upturned magician hat wild symbol, which is the one with the highest value.
Landing five J or Q symbols on a payline multiplies a line wager by 50, while landing five K or A symbols on a payline multiplies a line wager by 100. Landing five magician’s book or pocket watch symbols on a payline multiplies a line wager by 200, while landing five potion or crystal ball symbols on a payline multiplies a line wager by 300. When it comes to the magic chest, landing just two on a payline multiplies a line wager by 2, and landing five magic chests multiplies that by 400.
The magician’s hat wild, as with most video slots, substitute for all symbols except for the Free Spins Cube scatter to help players make winning combos. Additionally, landing two top hat wilds multiplies the line wager by 2, and 5 wilds multiplies the line wager by 500.
The Great Gambini’s Night Magic has fairly common features such as the free spin and multipliers for matching symbols, but a few are unique to this game.
Three or more Free Spin Cube scatter symbols in a spin triggers the free spin feature, which is fairly standard for Novomatic games. Three, four, and five scatters give the player 5, 10, and 15 free spins, respectively.
However, trigging the free spins feature also transforms the middle reel into a magic one so that when the player chooses a bonus symbol that land on that reel during the free spins, the special symbol expands to the middle reel, and may spread to the fourth and fifth reel as well.
While this is certainly a new thing for video slots, The Great Gambini is not yet done. The game features reel modifiers which triggers randomly during the base game after losing spins. These are:
- The Guillotine
This might come out after a losing spin in which the Guillotine will appear and show a winning combination. This modifier can happen repeatedly, increasing the chances of winning combinations, and collecting even more free spins.
Levitation might activate also after a losing spin in which some symbols on the reels ascend and the Great Gambini will then replace them with new symbols for a win.
- Reel Magic
A losing spin might also trigger Reel Magic in which the reels swap to get a winning combo. This can also happen many times at random.
- Quick Change
A Quick Change activates after a losing spin in which one or more symbols shift in positions to to give a player a winning combination.
Reel modifiers are unique features that all players can appreciate, but especially ones suffering from a long run of bad luck with their spins.
The Great Gambini’s Night Magic Review Verdict
The Great Gambini’s Night Magic video slot game has certainly given a new approach to improving a player’s chance of wins other than going for the luck of the Irish. This is particularly fitting for a high variance game to even the odds a little bit. It is a refreshing take on an old theme, and likely to catch the attention of many video slot enthusiasts.
Overall, The Great Gambini’s Night Magic is a nice game for those wanting to have some fun with the slots. It focuses more on prolonging the entertainment rather than giving out large payouts, and for many people, the fun factor is what counts.
