At one stage, the Beatles ruled the world of music and for a lot of people they still do Liverpool regularly won the league, soaps were only on once a week and fruit was the King of Slot Games. How times change but with this slot game from Novomatic, the fruit machine is being paid tribute to and it’s great to see that happening. However, there are a few touches to the game and ‘Zreczny Magik’ has a very different look to it.
Thankfully, the ‘Zreczny Magik’ video slot is easier to play than it is to spell its title. It’s Polish and a rough translation into English is Magical Magician, who’d ever have guessed a magician could be magical, oh well. A lot of the games you play these days have five reels but in ‘Zreczny Magik’ there are two sets of reels on show hence the different look to this slot with software by Novomatic.
That one pay-line on each of the two reels runs horizontally through the middle row of the reels. You can’t change the number of pay-lines you play on the bottom reel but it is required to set a stake. The minimum cost of playing is 0.40 and the maximum 20 so not a game a high roller would be queuing up to play.
Whereas some of the retro style games mix the old gameplay with some of the new features, it’s not quite like that here with no free spins or pick ‘em games. Don’t let that put you off though as it’s still a great game to play with some top wins available. It’s ideal for those fairly new to playing slot games before trying the more complex ones.
The symbols in this game go down the classic fruit machine route. There’s the oranges, grapes, lemons, and cherries and then the traditional crowns, bells, and stars. There’s also a bar which in a way works as wild symbol. Two matching symbols on reels one and two can produce a win if a bar arrives on the third reel.
The minimum win in this online slot is four coins but the most you can win from one winning combination is a total of 200 so keep an eye out for that. To earn that 200 coins cash-out you need to see three of the star symbols on the pay-line, so here’s hoping. Other notable wins are a 20x multiplier for three grapes or bells and if you are lucky enough to get three watermelons then prepare yourself to cash-out 100 coins. So, onto the big question and the answer to just why there are two sets of reels in this game.
When you get a winning combination, you can transfer the funds to the Supermeter. If you decide to do that then this is when that top set of reels finally sees some action. That top set of reels actually has five pay-lines and in Top Spin mode there’s some additional symbols in the form of a strawberry and the red 7, both traditional symbols. When the reels spin there are higher payouts than seen on the bottom reel.
A feature that was always popular back in the day was the hold button. Many times, players would hold one or two of the reels hoping the next spin would see the one remaining reel match the other two that have been held and produce a win. Well, the hold button is back for ‘Zreczny Magik’ and it can help get you some winning combinations if your luck is in. All we need now is the nudge button back.
You can play ‘Zreczny Magik’ on your mobile devices which is great news. This isn’t that complicated a game but a bit of prior knowledge before playing with real cash won’t do you any harm. Simply have some free ‘Zreczny Magik’ slot machine games to get a free look at how the game runs in particular the hold button and the Supermeter. Also have a look at the paytable to see the rules and how much all those winning combinations will payout.
If you like playing casino slot machines that have four reels then there are others out there that you can test out. For example, you could test out another Novomatic release, ‘Simply Wild’ which also has the two sets of reels with fruity symbols and the profitable Supermeter feature. It has more pay-lines though and as you might guess from the title, a wild symbol. Also try your luck on ‘Random Runner AWP’ another Novomatic slot that has the two-reel format and has the same number of pay-lines as this slot with the chance to win more real cash in the Supermeter.
Another interesting take by Novomatic on the classic slots game. The lack of free spins might disappoint some but at least we have the hold button that brings back plenty of memories and can provide good wins. The Supermeter is where the big wins can come along so this is a game players should definitely try out.
