About Magic Mushrooms Slots

Yggdrasil Gaming brought us another unusual slot with Magic Mushrooms. It seems this slot developer doesn’t do anything the way everyone else does it. Magic Mushrooms certainly looks as if someone consumed those ‘shrooms, but the slot also features magical mushrooms in the form of wilds. The rest of the creatures will explain why this slot is indeed a trippy experience. Yet it’s also quite volatile, with big wins possible during the free spins. But only if those wilds come into play.

Game in Action

Graphically speaking Magic Mushrooms is enchantingly beautiful. Set in a mystical forest, the little critters on the reels belong to no species you’ve ever encountered. They pay pretty well, too, especially if you get five of them in a payline, of which you get 40 that pay both ways. The low-paying symbols look like different coloured amber with insects trapped inside them.

So, yeah, the theme is unusual and can only have been cooked up by someone on a trip after consuming some mind-altering substances. The background music is strangely haunting, too. It’s a lovely tune, accompanied by quiet forest noises, but it’s also melancholy and if you’re on the sensitive side, it makes you feel just a little sad.

That doesn’t mean this slot isn’t totally playable and intriguingly enjoyable as well, though. You may just have to prepare for the fact that this slot won’t leave you cold. It also has a more interesting layout with the reels covering 3x4x5x4x3 symbols and spinning from the outside in, which means that reel 3 is the last one stopping.


Bonuses

Apart from paying both ways, which is a feature in and of itself, the slot also comes with wilds and free spins. There are three different types of wilds and they all show up on different reels. The straightforward purple mushroom is a wild without anything special and it only appears on reels 1 and 5.

The blue mushroom comes with a multiplier from 2x to 10x your line bet. Each blue mushroom may have a different multiplier attached to it.

Finally, the pink mushroom on the middle reel is a spreading mushroom. Whenever it shows up on reel 3, it will extend a sort of tentacle and turn up to four symbols wild. Which wild they will turn into depends on the location of the symbol being turned. It’s even possible to get another wild on reel 3, which then also turns other symbols.

A combination of all three wilds plus high multipliers will bring the highest payouts in this slot.

And yes, there’s even a free spin feature. Collect at least three pink snail shells and you’ll get 10 free spins. Four scatters will give you 20 free spins and if you miraculously end up with five of them, you could get 75 free spins. Two additional scatters during the free spin feature will give you two additional free spins.

Summary

Magic Mushrooms feels quite magical indeed and the slot is a delight to play, even if you never hit the free spins, which we didn’t. We must have been particularly unlucky, but after spinning the reels nearly 500 times, we kind of grew tired of trying. That was probably unusual, because we’ve not heard anywhere else that the free spins are super hard to come by. Still, we found the slot enjoyable and those wilds helped a lot here.

It’s a pretty volatile slot, which is also owed to the fact that it pays both ways. Most wins won’t be large, unless you can get wilds and multipliers in a good combination on the reels. And then it’s a joy to play. Be mindful of your budget, otherwise this could become a trip you wouldn’t want to go on.
