The overall theme is carried across with delightful Harry Potter-style music paying in the background.
Win Both Ways on 5 Reels
The slot setup in Magic Mushrooms is quite unique if we compare to the setup of a lot of slots available these days for you. The game has a total of five reels with the outermost reels containing just three symbols. Reels 2 and four contain four symbols and the middle reel contains five symbols. This translates to a total of 40 paylines where the slot machine pays from right to left and left to right. On each spin, players can set the coin value from 0.01 coins up to 0.5 coins. In this game, the more coins bet per line, the higher the payouts. The game also offers up a good list of bonus features in the form of a Wild symbol, free spins, spreading Wild and multiplying Wild symbols.
On the Reels, players will find a strange assortment of magical forest creatures. The highest paying symbol in Magic Mushrooms is the pink monkey paying out a total of 1000 coins for all five symbols across the reels on a standard bet. After the monkey, the next highest paying symbol is the winged anteater looking creature followed by the spotted winged frog and the multi-eyed gecko. The four lower paying symbols are all type of magical insects held inside a glowing crystal gem.
Three Types of Wild Symbols
The Wild symbol in Magic Mushrooms is the pink and white spotted mushroom. This symbol only appears on reels one and five and can be used to substitute for any of the other standard symbols to form a winning combination. To add to this, the game also includes two other types of Wild symbols. The next type of Wild is the Multiplier Wild appearing on reels 2 and 4. Every time this symbol appears it adds a multiplier up to 10x. The third Wild is the spreading Wild appearing on reel 3. This symbol can turn adjacent symbols Wild when it appears.
The Free Spins Bonus Round
The main bonus feature in Magic Mushrooms is the free spins bonus round. The snail shell symbol is the key to triggering the free spins round. Landing 2 or more snail shell symbols anywhere on the reels will start the free spins. The more snails that trigger the round, the more free spins are awarded. Just 2 snails will award 2 free spins while 3 snails increases the number to 10. The maximum number of free spins is triggered by landing all five snails across the reels. This will award a total of 75 free spins. To add to this, the free spins round can be re-triggered by landing 2 or more snails across the reels during the bonus round.
