A magical, festive slot with fast gameplay and big winning potential, from Novomatic.
Magic Jester™, from Novomatic, is a richly coloured video slot themed around a magic court jester. Blue, red, and green, and all-red jester hats adorn many of the symbols, and the colours of the game give it a very festive, almost Christmas-like feel. The background fades from sparkly green to sparkly blue/purple, and the reels shine with bright stars, making it instantly attractive.
With five reels and three rows, Magic Jester™ is a relatively simple game, with just a few illustrated symbols and a Wild, that substitutes all the others. The Wild is, appropriately enough, a picture of the Magic Jester himself, and the other symbols are a cracked bell, a red hat-wearing ‘7’, melon and cherries.
Keeping things simple and rewarding, with a liberal sprinkling of magic.
Though Magic Jester™ is not exactly overflowing with special features, symbols can double or triple up for huge wins due to the Magic Reels feature – on each spin, one or more reels become a magic reel, and the higher value symbols (jester, 7, bell, cherry and melon), turn into doubles or triples. This means that you could actually get the equivalent of a 15-symbol combo - if you got 15 of the most rewarding symbol, you would win 800 times your stake!
Though there is not really much in the way of animation in the game, when you get a big win you are treated to a bit of a light show and moving hats. Another appealing feature of Magic Jester™ is the very low minimum bet per line of just 0.02 (with a maximum of 4.00 per line), making it very accessible for players on any budget.
As already mentioned, the colours are the most striking thing about Magic Jester™, and give the whole game a distinctly festive feel. There are very few pictures, with just the jester, bell, melon and cherry – but the lower scoring letters and number symbols are nicely themed and a look very regal. The reels themselves are trimmed with metal and purple bunting, adding to the positive feel. The soundtrack can seem a little odd at first, but seems to be referencing medieval royal court sounds, but with a bit a magic dust thrown in for good measure.
All in all, Magic Jester™ is the perfect game for a quick casual spin here and there, when time is short and you just feel like cheering yourself up. Despite being technically relatively simple, in true Novomatic style, it has lots of character and charm, which explains why it has been popular at EnergyCasino ever since it was added.
The theoretical return to player for this game is 95.07%.
