This game revolves around a mysterious enchantress known as Leonora. She invites players to her mystical palace that is hidden deep within an unknown location.

So get ready to sharpen up your finest wand and see if you can take Leonora under your spell!

Magic Castle is a 5 reel slot game with 40 paylines and it includes Free Spins as well as a Familiar Upgrade and Wild Feature.

Special Features

The first thing to highlight is the Wild symbol. This is represented by an image of Leonora holding a golden orb. Like most Wild symbols, it substitutes for all other symbols except the Free Spins symbol to help form winning combinations. This symbol is highly significant in the game as it is it the highest paying symbol, land 5 of these symbols and you’ll be treated to a maximum payout of 1,000X! The symbol is also stacked two symbols high and if the Wild symbol is part of a winning combination then a random multiplier value as high as 10X will be applied to your win. For example, if you manage to have 5 reels with a wild in each reel then you will be awarded a Crystal Ball multiplier ranging between 6X and 10X.

The Familiar Upgrade feature is all about Leonora’s 2 familiars who aid the Enchantress in casting her spells. If a Wild Cat symbol appears on reel 5 then any Cat symbol that appears on the other reels will magically transform into a Wild Cat symbol. Similarly, the same thing happens when the Wild Wolf symbol appears on reel 5, it will turn all Wolf symbols into Wild Wolf symbols. In essence, this benefits players a lot as it gives you 2 extra Wild symbols to keep an eye out for.

The standout attraction of the game is the Free Spins feature. This is triggered when you land 3 Free Spins symbols simultaneously on reels 2, 3, and 4. The Free Spins symbol is illustrated by the Magic Castle with a full moon in the background. Once activated, you’ll receive 15 Free Spins. However, if you manage to trigger this feature while landing a Wild symbol on the reels then your Free Spins will be multiplied by the Crystal Ball multiplier. So if you are lucky enough to get a 10X multiplier then you will get a massive 150 Free Spins! During Free Spins, a random multiplier ranging between 2X and 10X is awarded on every win which helps boost payouts by a considerable margin. Land 3 more Free Spins symbols on reels 2, 3, and 4 during this feature and you’ll receive an additional 15 Free Spins. Amazingly, up to a whopping 300 Free Spins can be retriggered in total!

Theme, Graphics and Sound

The graphics are wonderfully rendered on screen and feature lots of bright vivid colours. The game is set inside the eponymous Magic Castle and the reels are displayed against a purple wall complete with dimly lit torches. Symbols are comprised of a range of Leonora’s trinkets such as roses, candles, goblets, books, magical lockets, and of course her two familiars. The animations are a nice visual treat as symbols enlarge and sparkle whenever you form a win along the reels.

The music is quite playful with just a hint of mystery about it. It complements the magical theme of the game really well.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 40 paylines, an RTP ranging between 92.17% - 96.08%, and a maximum payout worth 1,000X your original bet.

Our Verdict on Magic Castle

IGT produced this slot and it's a really impressive game to play. The presentation is excellent and the bonus features of the game will provide players with countless hours of entertainment. The opportunity to win multipliers as high as 10X in the main game can be highly profitable and the fact that you can retrigger up to 300 Free Spins is a great incentive to check this slot out. I found this game to be of Medium variance which means that wins will occur on a regular basis but don't expect them to be too big.
