Magical Grove Slots

Magical-GroveFeaturing fairies, elves, unicorns and wizard frogs, Magical Grove seems to be indeed inspired by the legends and stories that we are used to telling our children. The magical part applies to the design of the game, with which Amaya did a pretty good job. A huge full moon is up in the night sky in the background, offering enough light for us to see the beautiful nature view from the background. The fantasy aspect is strong in this game, but that’s the way it should be for a title like this.

Magical Grove is an Amaya slot that has 5 reels plus 15 paylines. The game’s top jackpot is worth about $25,000, in the best case scenario where the maximum wager was used. The game’s list of features should insure that the attraction doesn’t come from the theme alone, with wild symbols, bonus games, scatters and free spins all contributing to it.

Features of Magical Grove

Half of the paytable area in Magical Grove is occupied by the various features that the game presents to you, including multiple types of scatters that do different things, plus wild symbols and some multipliers.

The wild symbol, with an image of a unicorn on it, will both act as a substitute and award the slot’s big prize. The wild power of the unicorn allows it to take the role of another symbol, as long as the position where it is needed is exactly where the unicorn is located. It only substitutes for symbols if it’s in the correct position to do anything about it, plus they can’t be scatters.

The first of the scatter symbols is the one that offers prizes. There are actually two different scatter symbols that do this, and they can do their job either with identical symbols or with mixed ones. One of these scatters gets an image with two small fairies next to the word Scatter, while the other has the same word imposed over four leaves. With just identical symbols contributing, the scatters can get you prizes of 50x the triggering bet, while a mix between the two types of scatters gives you up to 15x the bet. Either way, you need 3 to 5 scatter symbols to get a prize.

The mushroom with the Bonus word in front will give you the bonus game of Magical Grove. This is an icon that is offered on three reels out of five (1st, 2nd and 3rd). You need it to appear on all three, in order to get the bonus game and the three levels that you can go through.

Free Games Feature

A simple symbol, with the words “Free Spin” on it, this scatter can trigger the free games round for you. You need it to be on both the 1st and 5th reels during the same round, and those are the only reels that get it. If the requirements are met, the round of 3 free games that follows also has a 3x multiplier tripling all prizes. You can’t retrigger this feature, unfortunately.

Betting options and jackpots

Coin denominations in Magical Grove will go only up to $0.25, the starting point being at $0.01. Use a maximum of 10 coins for the paylines you want active, and you will end up with bets of up to 150 coins, their value going up to $37.50.

As for the top prize of this game, the one that gets people’s attention to it, it’s a 100,000 coins potential payout, its value going as high as $25,000.

Design and symbols

The fantasy theme is quite obvious here, even if you don’t look at the symbols and what they represent. The full moon, the magical night, the fairies appearing from behind stones and the decorative plants rising up from the ground, these all contribute to a perfect fantasy themed slot.

Symbols: Unicorn (wild, 10,000x), Toadstool (scatter), Free Spin (scatter, Fairies Scatter/Leaves Scatter (scatter, 50x the bet), Fairy (1,000x), Frog (1,000x), Elf (500x), Flower (500x), Ace (150x), King (150x), Queen (75x) and Jack (75x).
