Magic of the Ring Slot Review
You can’t help but notice that the theme of this slot is a clear spin-off of Lord of the Rings. You probably have already guessed that the allusive magic gold ring is the one you are after in this slot and you will soon be voluntarily whispering “My preeeecccciiiiooouussssss” at the screen before you know it. Join the animated version of Gandalf as you spin between dragons, axes and castles to grab the magic contained in the ring.
Magic of the Ring is a 5x3 reel, 20 payline video slot powered by Wazdansoftware. Symbols include Royal card suits (10-A), an axe and shield symbol, a dragon, a castle and a Wizard symbol. The only special symbol is the Magic Ring itself that acts as a wild, paid scatter and also triggers the Free Spins Feature with book-style bonus symbol. There is also a Gamble Feature. More detail will be given in the features section.
The game controls are located at the bottom of the screen. Starting from left to right is the number of lines window, the adjustable coin value window, cash bet window, autoplay button, spin button, max bet button, balance window, win window and fast play mode button. After a win you will notice a stacked coins x2 icon and a hand holding a coin icon appear on the spin button. These give you the option to either gamble your winnings to double it or to credit your win and continue to play.
Magic of the Ring consists of 3 features namely the Magic Ring symbol as a wild and scatter and the Gamble Feature.
Land the Magic Ring in a winning combination and it acts as a wild substituting for all symbols except for the bonus symbol during the Free Spins Feature.
As a scatter, the Magic Ring symbol’s pay is added to the winnings. Land between 3 and 5 scatters to be awarded with 10 Free Spins. Before the Free Spins Feature commences, you will be given a randomly selected bonus symbol. When your bonus symbol lands on the reels it will expand to improve your winnings, it is the typical book-style Free Spins mechanic used here.
As mentioned in the controls, when you win in the base game you have the option of gambling your win. If you choose to do so by clicking the stacked coins x2 icon that appears on the spin button after your win, you are taken to the Gamble Feature screen. Here you will have to stop the flashing card by selecting either black or red. If the card stops flashing with the colour that you selected you win double. If not, you will forfeit your win.
Unfortunately there are no unique features to this slot.
Magic of the Ring lacks in innovation in terms of features but has the ability to pay out big sums of cash. The graphics are nicely done with a 3D animated background. The RTP is at a respectful 96.47% with a low to medium volatility.
The max coin win is 50000
It’s no Lord of the Rings but a fair attempt at creating a theme that is relatable in terms of film culture. It’s a pity that the overused book-style mechanic has been used for the Free Spins Feature but at least you have the chance of landing more than a gold ring. Now allow me to go find my precious…as in the Magic Ring… no not that one… oh dear there’s nowhere out of this one.
