The theme of the game is based on stage magic and features an assortment of images all relating to master magicians and their props. In this game players will encounter images such as magic top hats, playing cards, dice, wands, canaries and padlocks.

5 Reel Magician Slot
Behind the magical exterior of the game, Magic Wand is based on the traditional slot setup of 5 spinning reels with a total of 25 paylines. Before each spin, players can select the number of paylines they want to play as well as the number of coins bet per payline. In this game, the more coins bet per payline, the higher the payouts for any winning combinations.
On the reels, each symbol is designed to represent a type of prop used in a magic act. The list of high paying non-bonus symbols include the magician himself conjuring a spell, the magician’s assistant, a padlock, a magic wand and a canary in a cage. The lower paying symbols are also themed and include a magic box, a pair of dice, a magic scarf, and a playing card.
Wild Substitute Symbol
The Magic Wand online slot also includes a range of bonus features that can lead to some big payouts. The bonus features include a Wild symbol, a Feature/Scatter symbol and a free spins bonus round. The wild symbol in this slot is the game logo itself. As a Wild symbol, the game logo can be used to substitute for all the other reel symbols to form a winning combination. The only symbol that the Wild cannot substitute for is the top hat Scatter symbol.
The Wild symbol in Magic Wand is also the highest paying symbol of the game. If players manage to land all five symbols across the reels with a maximum bet in place, this will result in the slot jackpot payout of 7500 coins. The Scatter/Feature symbol in this game is the image of the top hat. The only role of the Feature symbol is to trigger the free spins bonus round. To activate the bonus round, players must land 3 or more top hat Feature symbols anywhere on the reels.
Free Spins with Wild Reels
In this game, the more Feature symbols that trigger the bonus round, the more free spins are awarded. Landing three Feature symbols across the reels will result in 5 free spins. Four Feature symbols across the reels will reward players with 7 free spins and finding all five Feature symbols across the reels will result in the maximum of 20 free spins. During the free spins bonus round, at least two reels will randomly turn wild with each spin. This gives players a better chance of creating winning combinations.
