The Great Casini Slots

The-Great-CasiniThe Great Casini is Amaya’s magic themed slot machine. Using a magician named Casini as its entertainer, this slot takes the player to one of the seats in front of the stage. You get to see from there the reels and the various magical tricks that appear on them. Magic and the unknown in general have been fascinating topics and sources of entertainment for many people, and it’s true of this game as well.

A 5 reel game, The Great Casini holds on them up to 15 active paylines. Using multiple types of scatters, bonus games, free spins and a wild symbol, it’s already an attractive proposition, but they’ve added a $25,000 prize on top, for good measure.

Features of The Great Casini

This game doesn’t neglect the features, a good thing since many people that are interested in magic want to be entertained, not just to spin reels. The biggest part of this section is based on the various types of scatters, four of them total and doing three different things for the player.

If you see a pair of hands that aren’t connected to a body, and which are asking you to pick a card, you’ve just found the most valuable symbol of the slot, the wild. In its capacity as a wild, it will take the role of regular symbols, as long as its position in the game and the neighboring symbols allow it to take part in a combination. It gives away the slot’s big prize as well, the 10,000x multiplier applied to the line bet, for which you need an entire payline with wilds on it. A wild is not capable of substituting for Bonus, Free Spin or Scatter symbols, not in this game at least.

The Bonus, with an image of a top hat on it, will trigger the bonus feature. You will get a bonus game out of it, but you need the three Bonus symbols to be present and scattered on the first three reels (1, 2 and 3). Once inside the bonus game, you will get to advance through the three levels and earn prizes along the way.

Quite a few titles from Amaya will offer two different types of scatters that can give you prizes either by combing up to five mixed scatters, or by using five matching ones if they are available. The matching option is the most profitable, since it can give you up to 50 times the wager you’ve made. With mixed scatters, the prize only goes to 15 times the wager. Both symbols show you the two hands and different magic tricks, with the word Scatter at the bottom.

Free Games Feature

The main character in this slot, Casini, will appear on the Free Spin symbol. It is reserved for the first and the last reel, and you need it on both of them and during the same round, if you want the 3 free games that it offers. It might not sound like much, but those free spins have a x3 multiplier in place, so they have a decent potential.

Retriggering the free spins is not possible, even if you get the two symbols at the same time. You also can’t get the bonus game, if you’re in the free spins at the time.

Betting options and jackpots

A $37.50 maximum bet is possible in The Great Casini, a game that has 15 lines and allows for a maximum of 10 coins to be used for each one. Add to that a range for the coin denomination that goes from $0.01 to $0.25, and you get the bet of up to $37.50 that I mentioned. The possibility to customize the different parts of the bet is there, so you can wager as little as $0.01 if you want to.

You will find a 100,000 coins payout that tries to make this slot extra appealing, the value being anywhere between $1,000 and $25,000, depending on the denomination.

Design and symbols

The stage, a place where the magician does his shows and manages to amaze the viewers, acts as the background for the game and the reels. The reels themselves seem to be placed on some kind of red leather scroll, with images that are half playing cards, half magic props. There is a lot of red in the game, both in the curtains of the background image, on the reels and in the individual symbols. It works well in this case, and the game manages to provide a decent experience.

Symbols: Hands With Cards (wild, 10,000x), Casini (scatter), Magic Hat (scatter), Hand with Handkerchief/Red Ball (scatters), Cannon (1,000x), Bird Cage (1,000x), Locked Chest (500x), Cups Game (500x), Ace or King (150x), Queen or Jack (75x).


Is It Worth Playing?

The Great Casini seems to have everything you could want from a game, from lots of features to an enjoyable design. The top jackpot could be a lot higher, but then again it could be much lower as well.

The Great Casini can be found at any Amaya casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
