Venture deep into the wild jungle on the slot from Play’n GO for an encounter with exotic creatures. Rainforest Magic will take you on reel journey through what we call the planet’s green lungs with random mystery symbols in the base game and a free spins round with guaranteed mystery reels that can lead to wins of up to 5,000 times your bet (win cap).
Rainforest Magic is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 25 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Delve into the lush greenery on desktop, mobile or tablet from 0.25 to 100 credits per spin. The game is highly volatile (10/10) with a default RTP of 96.54%. Some operators might offer the game at a lower setting of 94.50%, always check the help file to find out which version you will be playing.
Expect the usual high standard for graphics and visuals as we have become accustomed to on games from Play’n GO. A dreamy scene with lush rainforest vegetation can be seen in the background of the translucent game window that is ornamented with a stone frame. A range of colourful rainforest creatures dominate the reels.
Open the game to find beautifully crafted card suits – green clubs, orange diamonds, red hearts and blue spades – at the low end of the paytable, awarding 1.2x to 2.2x your stake for a single five of a kind. They are followed by frogs, snakes, toucans, parrots and monkeys. Hit five of a kind to win 5x to 20x your bet.
A jaguar is the wild and top-paying symbol, substituting for all regular pay symbols and awarding 40x your stake when five land on a line. The wild doubles as scatter while an intricate tile with a question mark is the mystery symbol.
Central to the action and scoring big wins on this game is the Mystery symbol. It can land randomly on any spin in the base game and all in view will transform into a common symbol including wilds. A full screen of wild symbols will pay the maximum win in a single spin of 1,000 times your bet.
Land three or more wild symbols on a spin, either naturally or via the Mystery symbol transformation, to trigger the Free Spins feature. Three to 15 wild symbols in view will award 6 to 30 free spins, which cannot be retriggered. Before the start of the bonus round, you will be presented with four flowers. You can pick one to determine if 1, 2, 3 or 4 Mystery Reels will be active for the entire feature. The position of the Mystery Reels will change on each spin. They contain only mystery symbols, which behave in the same way as the base game by transforming into matching symbols of any kind, including wilds.
While the game looks refreshing and inviting, the gameplay is rather tame, very different from what we usually expect from the wild creatures that roam the rain forests. The slot feels more like the usual design crew was on their well-deserved summer holiday and they left the keys to a group of interns.
While the release isn’t due until 10th October 2019, we don’t expect any changes to the math model. The maximum win cap of 5,000 times the bet looks far-fetched (chance is less than 1:100 million spins) but I expect it to be good for regular wins in the 100x to 500x bet range.
