Magic Portals Slots

Magic-PortalsMagic Portals is a fantasy themed slot, the action revolving around magic, dragons, elf girls and sorcerers, to name only a few of the elements that have found their way onto the reels. The name is taken from one of the features available in the game, an interesting option that you will not find anywhere else, one extra reason to see how the game plays. The fantasy theme is not as special, but it’s tastefully done in this case, so I’m sure you will enjoy it anyway.

This modern game from Net Entertainment has the 5 reels you would expect from it, plus as many as 25 paylines. Its rewards will reach $5,000, while the list of features gives you access to free games, scatter symbols and wilds.

Features of Magic Portals

The Magic Portals feature and its wild is one part of the slot you will appreciate, but there is also a scatter and free spins are offered on top.

Magic Portals Wild is an option that is available both during the base game and during free spins. Whenever you get 2+ symbols that match on both the 1st and the 5th reels during the same round, and on the middle position where the Magic Portals are located, you will find that they become wilds. The Magic Portal graphics are easily recognizable, but they will only help you if you have two matching symbols in there. You can’t use Free Spins symbols in the portals and turn them into wilds, but all the regular symbols will do that for you. The portals will connect and will also turn other symbols into wilds.

The resulting wild is capable of substituting for most symbols, but not for the Free Spins scatter. You can get it in the Magic Portals through the transformation process that takes place there, and you can also get the Wild symbol on any of the other positions on the reels. It might not have multipliers attached, but it’s still a feature I would want to get as often as possible.


Free Games Feature

The free spins are activated with the Magic Portals helping out. You need the Free Spins scatter to appear in the two magic portal spots, on the 1st and 5th reels, at the same time. Only then will you be rewarded with the 10 free spins available in the game. Retriggering them is a possibility, as long as the initial requirement is met once again.


Betting options and jackpots

It’s one of the more expensive slots that Net Ent offers, while at the same time being stingy with its prizes. You can get away with bets of only $0.01 per line if you want to, but in order to get the most out of it you will have to use up to $10 per line, or $250 total. Line bets are composed of 1 to 10 coins, $0.01 to $1 being their denomination.

The Redheaded Elf awards up to 500x as the biggest prize the slot has to offer. The $5,000 maximum value which results from this is not enough as far as I’m concerned, not when you have to bet $250 to get it.

Design and symbols

The design is probably the best thing about this game. The fantasy theme is usually a good basis for a slot machine, with so many exotic creatures that can be incorporated, but Net Ent took it once again one step further. You will find it to be a great looking title, with all sorts of creatures and characters, from the white bearded sorcerer, to the elf girl with blue hair, the fire breathing dragon or the elemental crystal balls. If graphics are an important factor in your decisions, Magic Portals insures that it has your full attention.


Symbols: Redheaded Elf (500x), White Bearded Sorcerer (300x), Blue Elf (200x), Dragon (175x), Owl (150x), Wolf (125x), Fire Sphere (100x), Lighting Sphere (75x) and Ice Sphere (50x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s a great game to play, it has the right graphics and new features that you will not find anywhere else, but it also has disappointing prizes and high wagering requirements.

You will find Magic Portals at any online casino which chooses to use software from Net Entertainment, playable either for free or for real money.
