Novomatic certainly like their classic slots style games. They have a whole host of slot games that use fruit as the dominant symbols just like they were back in the past. Here’s another of their games that pay homage to those slots and it includes some modern-day features to give us ‘Magic 81 Lines’ and it gives its players a great number, well 81 to be exact, chances to get cash-out some good wins.
So, why is it called ‘Magic 81 Lines’ I hear you asking. Well, the simple response is that this game, which can either be played on your PC or iPhone and other mobile devices, has a total of 81 winning combinations. That’s not bad for a slot that has four reels, three rows of symbols and ten-win lines. That number is a fixed amount but it is required to work out how much you wish to stake on each spin of the reels. The minimum cost of playing ’81 Magic Lines’ is 0.40 which is useful if you have a low-limit and the most that can be wagered on one spin is 100. Think again about responsible gambling and bet an amount that you can safely afford to wager.
The Magic 81 Lines video slot uses the All Pay method and that’s how we get all those different ways to win. Wins are paid when there are matching symbols but not necessarily on a win line. The graphics in ‘Magic 81 Lines’ are bit basic but that’s to be expected in a game that pays tribute to the old one arm bandit games.
Before you can play this game, you need to fill in the Reality Check Interval which is a useful tool to ensure responsible gambling. All that is required is to set a time after which the game is suspended and the player is shown just how you’ve been getting on playing the game. Take heed of the information received and decide whether to continue playing or stop and try again another day.
As for the symbols, they are full of the usual suspects with plums, lemons, oranges, grapes, watermelons, and cherries. It’s a bit like looking at what you’d take to a relative who’s ill in hospital. We also get the BAR symbol and the red 7 which is the best paying symbol with 16,000 coins for four matching symbols.
There’s a few new touches in this game, though no sign of a free spins or pick ‘em bonus games. It’s the wild symbol you will want to be seeing the most of. It can substitute for other symbols to help get winning combinations. Even better one wild symbol helps create sees that win doubled. If two wilds come along to get you a win then it’s quadrupled and the brilliant news is three wilds creating a win sees an 8x multiplier attached to that win.
All that even comes close to a bonus round is the gamble feature. This appears once a winning combination has been formed and you need to take a second or two before deciding whether to play it. If it’s a big win that you have just had, then under no circumstances try out the gamble feature, it’s just too dodgy. Small wins can be gambled but perhaps once or twice as your luck might run out sooner or later. Again, it’s the playing card game with your sole task being to correctly guess the colour of the next playing card. A correct decision doubles your win with four more chances available, however a wrong guess costs you all your special win so be careful.
This isn’t the most complicated of online slots and ideal for those of you who are new to slot games. It’s still a good idea to have a look through the paytable and find out all the rules to the game. It also has information about how much each of the winning combinations pay. For example, four watermelons pay out 6000 coins and four grapes 4000 so keep an eye out for those. Also, have some free ‘Magic 81 Lines’ slot games to see all that happens when the reels start spinning.
If you want to play similar slot games that then are a fair few to choose from. For example, you can test out your luck on another Novomatic game, ‘Sizzling Hot Deluxe’ which also has fruit as its most popular symbols. It also has a gamble feature that you can try to double wins with. There are other four-reel games you can play such as ‘Wild Thing’ which is also from Novomatic and has ten pay-lines, both wild and scatter symbols and a gamble feature.
Another of the retro style games that Novomatic love releasing. Like many of the others it’s a straightforward slot that can be played at online casinos and ideal for newcomers to the world of slot games. It’s all bit basic but there are some good wins to be had in ‘Magic 81 Lines’ but be careful with the gamble feature and don’t throw good wins away.
