The Abracardabra slot game by Betdigital and NYX Interactive offers you a unique playing experience by combining elements of online slots with video poker, and a modest infusion of fruit machine styling. Instead of using paytable symbols, the slot features playing cards on its five reels, which are turned over as the game progresses. By drawing and holding cards as you would in a typical video poker game, and through other special features, you can create sets of matching cards to win cash prizes. The slot offers a fast-paced and fun way to play for prizes of up to 250,000 coins with bets of 2p up to £25. Although the game doesn’t use a wild symbol or scatter symbol, it boasts a Bonus Card feature which can grant you win multipliers and extra winning opportunities. Plus, there’s a Magic Hat Bonus which can change the playing cards currently showing on the reels to potentially create new wins.
As soon as you launch the Abracardabra slot by NYX Interactive, it becomes apparent that this is no ordinary game. The logo runs across the top of the screen, and across the five reels, you’ll see blue face-down playing cards. In the main game, there’s just one row of cards. Rather than awarding prizes for creating wins from left-to-right or right-to-left, the game pays out whenever you get three, four or five matching cards showing on the reels. It’s quite easy to do this as the cards don’t feature numbers or playing card suits. Instead, each card can contain one of eight fruit machine-themed symbols such as the cherry, lemon, watermelon, orange, grape, plum, 7 or bar. The values for each symbol type are displayed at all times along the bottom of the game screen. To make it more likely that you’ll score a win uses two video poker-style features – Hold and Deal. You start the game by clicking Deal, then Hold any cards you wish to keep before drawing replacement cards.
The slot has no wild symbol but it has some incredible bonus features.
It also does not have a scatter symbol, but this slot isn’t like others and it’s bonuses make up for it.
The two bonus features are where the Abracardabra slot comes into its own, bringing with them increase chances of winning.
Firstly, there’s the Abracardabra Bonus, which is triggered when three, four or five Bonus card symbols are displayed on the reels. You get a win multiplier of x1, x2 or x10 for three, four or five Bonus cards respectively. Once your multiplier has been awarded, all cards are removed from the playing area. Next, five new cards are added to the five reel positions and a further twelve new cards are placed in the area underneath. If a new win is created, you’re credited with your prize before a new set of cards are dealt. The bonus ends when no more new wins are possible.
Secondly, there’s the Magic Hat Bonus which is awarded at random. The magician’s hat ejects new cards which take the place of the ones that are currently displayed in the playing area, and with a bit of luck, a new winning combination will form.
