Net Entertainment’s Magic Maid Cafe Video Slot Review

Victorious MAX: Demo

Tuck into some tasty looking cakes in Magic Maid Café, a rather strange 5 reel, 20 payline video slot from NetEnt. Played using Avalanche reels, successive wins bring multipliers into play. These range from 1x up to 5x in the base game, rising to 3x to 15x if you trigger the feature which offers up to 20 free spins. Take your seat from between 20p and £50 per spin.

Manga design

The visuals in Magic Maid Café are done manga style and are a little strange. The setting is the Magic Maid Café which is an explosion of pink. On the reels are an assortment of cakes, puddings and ice creams as well as 3 higher paying waitresses. The most lucrative is the pink-haired waitress. Land 3, 4 or 5 of here on a payline and you’ll win a payout of 2.5, 10 or 40 times your bet. There’s also a wild which performs the usual replacing duties.

Avalanche reels with multipliers

Magic Maid Café uses the Avalanche Multipliers feature. After a winning combination lands, the successful symbols are removed from play and new symbols drop in from above and replace them. Each successive avalanche increases the multiplier:

  • Initial avalanche = 1x
  • 2nd avalanche = 2x
  • 3rd avalanche = 3x
  • 4th or more avalanches = 5x

If an avalanche doesn’t result in a win, then the multiplier goes back to 1x.

20 free spins with mutlipliers up to 15x

The golden key is the scatter. Land 3 of these on successive reels, starting from reel 1, and you’ll unlock the Free Falls feature. On offer here are 10 free spins. The avalanche multipliers are even bigger during the feature than in the base game.

  • Initial avalanche = 3x
  • 2nd avalanche = 6x
  • 3rd avalanche = 9x
  • 4th or more avalanches = 15x

Re-triggers are possible here too which will get you another round of 10 free spins.

Rather weird theme

With its stocking-clad waitress and pink colour scheme, the theme in Magic Maid Café is really, rather strange. If we were walking down a High Street and fancied tea and cake, we wouldn’t be stopping here. Saying that, the gameplay is superb – and for good reason.

The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that the avalanche reels, free spins and multipliers can also be found in the classic Gonzo’s Quest slot (by NetEnt of course). The gameplay here is identical, offering medium to high variance action. If given the choice we’d still opt for the Spanish conquistador over the cake shop.

Get on a roll with the multipliers and the Magic Maid Café can deliver some tasty enough treats. There’s up 2,500 times your bet to be won from each spin – add in the 15x multiplier and you could win 37,500 times your bet on every free spin! The weird café sounds a lot more appealing now right?
