About Magicious Slots

Thunderkick can always be relied upon to deliver visually beautiful games. Magicious is no exception, even though it borrows heavily from fan-favourite Starburst where the features are concerned. Nevertheless, Magicious has its very own charm and thus manages to hold its own against the more famous contender. When you enter the magical world of this Thunderkick slot, you’ll even find that it pays more often than the slot it seems to pay homage to.

Game in Action

Magicious doesn’t look anything like Starburst, of course. That falls to Thunderkick’s slot Flux, which is also quite nice. Magicious instead brings us two magicians, one male and one female. We particularly like that the female magician is indeed not just a skimpily-clad assistant, but a magician in her own right, including the wand.

The symbols of colourful stars and decorative boxes float on the screen and whenever a winning combination hits, the magicians give it their best when waving those wants to conjure the wins. It’s surprisingly delightful, especially since the magicians look quite adorable in their efforts.

The background music is also quite suitable and comes with a drumroll whenever the payout is big. On the whole this is a low variance slot, however, which means you’ll win often, but small amounts.


Bonuses

The main reason why wins are frequent is the fact that the slot pays both ways. That is, of course, why the comparison with Starburst is an obvious one.

But just like Starburst, this slot also offers expanding Wilds and Re-spins. The Wilds will land only on reels 2, 3 and 4. When they do land, they will expand and stick around for a free re-spin. Should another Wild land, it will expand as well and both Wilds will stick around for a second re-spin. In total you can get three Wilds and three Re-spins, which occurs even when you spin all three Wilds onto the reels at once.

That’s where the biggest payouts are waiting. And whilst you will rarely get three Wilds, it’s not at all uncommon to get two Wilds at once.

Summary

Magicious is quite magical in look and feel and its charm means you’ll be playing it for quite some time. There’s not even an issue with the fact that Thunderkick borrowed so heavily from NetEnt. They aren’t the first ones to do so and they have done a better job than most. Magicious has even the advantage that it pays more frequently and has the higher RTP than Starburst. On the other hand, its highest payout is smaller than that of the competition, which is just about our only gripe.

Everyone who likes Starburst should definitely give Magicious a spin as well. It’s simple in approach and gameplay and still manages to stand up to comparisons with the long-standing favourite of many. It’s a slot for budget-conscious people, who want a bit of fun and don’t mind that the features are not as original as in other Thunderkick slots.
