Black Magic Slots

Black-MagicBlack Magic is a game offered by Wager Gaming, a relatively well known developer, though not one of the big names of the industry. They’ve chosen a rather dark topic for this game, but it seems that they put enough work into it, all the symbols being related to the dark arts in some way. They didn’t pull out the playing cards, so all the symbols give you things like skulls, owls, snakes, spiders or gravestones, things you would expect in a slot machine that witches have something to do with.

While playing on the 25 lines of Black Magic, you’re going to get wild symbols and scatters, with their appearance triggering a bonus game or prizes of up to $60,000. This is a 5 reel slot from Wager Gaming.

Features of Black Magic

Black Magic doesn’t have the free spins or the multipliers that are common in many Wager Gaming slots, but you still have access to a bonus game, to scatters and to wilds, so hopefully you will not feel their loss that hard.

First of all, we have the one that is responsible for all this black magic being performed, the witch. Showing us a woman with green and purple hair, this symbol has two powers that I think make it the best feature of the game. First of all, and most importantly, it triggers the slot’s top jackpot of 6,000 coins, by forming combinations of up to five icons. Second, it acts as a wild feature, meaning that you can expect it to replace another symbol in a newly formed combination, as long as it’s a regular one. It can’t replace a Moon scatter symbol though.


The one other major symbol that Black Magic prides itself with would be the scatter, a symbol that is capable of forming its own combinations without aligning the symbols on certain paylines. Instead, it only needs to be in 2 to 5 locations, random ones at that, and that will give you a cash prize and with 3+ symbols it can also trigger a bonus game. Cash payouts are offered starting from two scatters, where they offer 2x the wager, and they go up to 100x the wager, for five scatters.

Black Magic Bonus Game

The scatter symbol would normally trigger free spins, but in this game it triggers a bonus feature. 3+ scatter symbols are needed for that to happen. The bonus game that comes next asks you to pick crystals, a total of six being placed on the screen. Each one gets you a cash prize, which is a multiple of the total wager.

Betting options and jackpots

When you’re looking to start playing this game, you first have to decide how many lines you want activated. You have to use one coin in each case, but you can pick the value, in the $0.01 to $10 range. You end up with wagers that go up to $250, using 25 coins at their maximum level.

The slot’s biggest reward consists in 6,000 coins and that turns into $60,000 cash.

Design and symbols

The design does seem to be black magic inspired, at least if you take a look at all the objects and scary rituals that are described on the reels. I enjoyed that the immersion factor was not disturbed by the presence of symbols with playing cards on them. The slot actually looks a bit disturbing, a perfect choice for a black magic and witch inspired title.

Symbols: Witch (6,000 coins, wild), Moon (scatter, 100x the bet), Constelation (1,000 coins), Skull (500 coins), Owl (250 coins), Snake (250 coins), Spider (150 coins), White Bat (150 coins), Candle (125 coins), Ceramic Vessel (125 coins), Witch Hat (100 coins) and Gravestone (100 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s a decent slot considering the theme it’s been handed, but it’s not as scary or as dark as I would’ve expected it to be. It doesn’t look bad though, and it has good prizes and features, so it should be worth at least a closer look.

You will find Black Magic at any online casino which chooses to use software from Wager Gaming, playable either for free or for real money.
