Magic Lines Slots

Magic-LinesMagic Lines is one of the BetSoft classic series, where games have a reduced number of reels and as few features as possible. The graphics have to suffer as well when it’s a classic, something few slot machines try to improve on. The game does have something special going on though, and that would be the features that it includes. All paying combinations pay the same amount, so you rely mostly on the features to keep you entertained and on the edge of your seat.

The 3 reels of Magic Lines give you a maximum of 5 paylines. The game’s top jackpot is worth 800, while the features are a bit different, one called the Repeater, the other being a skill test.

Features of Magic Lines

As I’ve mentioned above, the two features offered in this game are not the ones you might be used to. You get a skill test whenever one combo of three symbols is formed, and you can take it from there.

The arrow area that you see at the top is the one where this skill test will take place. You have to click on the slot’s Start/Stop button when the Stop sign is illuminated. If you manage to click on it at just the right time, you get access to the other section from the upper half of the screen, called Repeater. It has ten sections total, one of them marked Repeater. The sections will light up fairly quickly and moving through the ten stops. When you click on Stop, the light train will begin to slow down. If one of the sections it stops on is the Repeater button, you get a free respin that gets you the exact same symbols and the same payout as the original three symbol combo. The Repeater section will keep repeating itself until you hit Stop at the wrong time.

Betting options and jackpots

Magic Lines can get expensive quickly, at least if you insist on taking the coin denomination to its maximum value. Though it starts at $0.02, it can easily go to $20 in value, which means a $200 wager when you consider all 5 paylines available inside and the Double Stake option (2 coins per line).

All the prizes offered in this game will give you a 20x multiple of the line bet, so up to 40 coins or $800 can be won from each winning combination.

Design and symbols

The theme is a classic, but it has some elements of arcade games in it as well, an impression you get mostly because of the two mini games that are present at the top. These are skill games, where you have to click a button at the right time, in order to make sure the lights stop on the right symbol.

Symbols: Golden Bell (20x), Blueberry (20x), Strawberry (20x), Cherries (20x), Pear (20x), Lemon (20x) and Orange (20x).

Is It Worth Playing?

It’s not often that you see a slot machine that has a skill based bonus round to offer you, but this one does. It’s also an unusual classic because of the fixed payout that you can get from any of its symbols. Overall, I’d say it’s going to be a fun little game for those sick of the same old classic machines.

This Magic Lines slot is offered by all online casinos with BetSoft software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
