Play ‘N Go’s Rainforest Magic Video Slot Review

Venture deep into the virtual jungle in Rainforest Magic, a super volatile 5 reel, 25 payline video slot from Play ’N Go. Look out for special mystery symbols that all transform into the same one. There’s also a bonus round that awards between 6 and 30 free spins where between 1 and 4 reels will be filled with mystery symbols on each of them. Stakes range from between 25p and £100 per spin.

With the lush vegetation of the forest in the background, you’ll see primitive looking playing card suits symbols alongside frogs, snakes, toucans and parrots. The top standard symbol is the baby monkey which pays 500 times your bet if you land 5 on a payline. Better still is the wild which can appear on all 5 reels and replace all the standard symbols. This offers awards of up to 1,000 times your bet per line.

The ? is the mystery symbol. All instances of these that appear on the same spin transform into the same matching symbol with the Mystery Symbols feature. A payout calculation then follows with the new symbols in position. The mystery symbols can morph into anything including the wild.

Rather unusually, it’s wilds rather than scatter that trigger the Free Spins feature. Land 3 or more wilds on the same spin and you can look forward to some free spins. The more wilds, the more free spins awarded:

  • x3 Wilds = 6 Free Spins
  • x4 Wilds = 8 Free Spins
  • x5 Wilds = 10 Free Spins
  • x6 Wilds = 12 Free Spins
  • x7 Wilds = 14 Free Spins
  • x8 Wilds = 16 Free Spins
  • x9 Wilds = 18 Free Spins
  • x10 Wilds = 20 Free Spins
  • x11 Wilds = 22 Free Spins
  • x12 Wilds = 24 Free Spins
  • x13 Wilds = 26 Free Spins
  • x14 Wilds = 28 Free Spins
  • x15 Wilds = 30 Free Spins

Before the start, you’ll be offered the pick of 4 flowers. Pick one to determine how many Mystery Reels will be in play during the free spins – this is called the Mystery Reels feature. This can be anything from 1 through to 4. These Mystery Reels are full of Mystery Symbols which all transform into the same symbol. The Mystery Reels shifts position with each free spin.

This ticks all the usual boxes for a Play ’N Go video slot. The design is nicely done, the gameplay is relatively simple and variance it stratospherically high. If you like volatile action, then you won’t be disappointed here. In reality, you could win 25,000 times your bet if you fill all 5 reels with wilds but the maximum win is capped at 5,000 times your bet per spin or free spin.

We liked this jungle trek. Fans of the high risk, high reward video slots from Play ’N Go can expect more of the same in the straightforward but potentially explosive Rainforest Magic. If you want big rainforest wins, Legend of the Jaguar from Playtech delivers.
