The noble profession of amateur magician often gets a bad rap in pop culture – well, in adverts for online dating applications, anyway – but in their stylish new slot, The Great Gambini’s Night Magic, Novomatic are doing everything in their power to make sleight of hand sexy again!
As the name would suggest, The Great Gambini’s Night Magic is a game focused on the ancient art of illusion and gives a starring role to its titular protagonist. The action takes place to a backdrop of darkened streets, while none other than the Great Gambini stands to the side of the reels ready and waiting to conjure up big wins to the startled gasps of his captivated audience.
Featuring five reels and 20 paylines, The Great Gambini’s Night Magic can be enjoyed from as little as £0.20 per spin, with the maximum bet stretching all the way up to £100 for those with more than just substitute rabbits in their pockets. For their investment, players will get to enjoy a visually stunning slot that offers base game payouts of up to 1,000x their stake, with further razzle-dazzle added to the proceedings by four randomly-triggered features and a main bonus round.
As you’d fully expect from a slot in this genre, the symbols to feature on the reels are as magical as they are unique. Sure, the omnipresent ace, king, queen and jack playing card icons make a slightly unwelcome return, but alongside them players will discover potion bottles, pocket watches, crystal balls, books of tricks, treasure chests and assorted magician’s paraphernalia that add to the theme.
In terms of feature symbols, there’s not an awful lot to talk about in The Great Gambini’s Night Magic. The unique icon that you’ll most commonly interact with is the top hat, which is a substitute wild that can replace any regular symbol to form winning combos and is also capable of awarding the game’s top payout.
In addition to that, there’s also a free spins scatter symbol that can appear on any of the reels during a base game spin. Landing three or more of these icons can award between 5 and 15 free spins in the main feature, with the highest number on that list reserved for players lucky enough to land five in one spin.
The only other thing to note about symbols in The Great Gambini’s Night Magic is that during free spins, one regular icon will be chosen as a bonus symbol. Although not a feature symbol per se, should players’ chosen symbol appear on the central reel – the “magic reel” – it will become stacked and can potentially spread across all other reels at random to create huge winning combinations.
Bonuses and Jackpots
In addition to the aforementioned free spins, The Great Gambini’s Night Magic also boasts four additional features that can be triggered at random after any non-winning spin. All based on famous tricks, these include The Guillotine, Levitation, Reel Magic and Quick Change – and all can award guaranteed wins.
Dealing with them in order, The Guillotine can drop over the reels to reveal a winning combination and even trigger the free spins feature if you’re lucky. Levitation, meanwhile, will see selected symbol rise off the reels to be replaced with new ones that will also guarantee players at least one winning payline.
Reel Magic will see the Great Gambini perform one of his famous shuffles as reels are moved from one place to another, with this process continuing so long as further wins are possible. Finally, the Quick Change bonus is effectively a nudge feature that sees one or more selected symbols shunted one place in any direction to ensure at least one guaranteed winning combination is created.
