Magic Crystal slots is part of the five reel mechanical series of games from WMS Gaming. Built on the Bluebird platform, this game is similar to others including: Blue Diamonds slots, Power 7s slots,The Monkees slots, Awesome 8’s slots, Mystical Dragon slots, andWild Lightning slots among others.

X-Treme Reels

This slot machine offers the famous X-Treme Reels feature, made available by WMS Gaming. With the X-Treme feature, you start with three standard reels and two bonus reels. Although not mandatory, you can make two extra bets to activate the fourth and fifth reels. If you are lucky enough to win while this wager is in place, you can multiply your winnings by as much as 100x.

Yes, you do have to make a higher wager to activate the X-Treme Reels feature. By making a bet of five credits on all 10 paylines, the fourth reel is activated. Any win on the first three reels is multiplied by the fourth reel along with a multiplier of 2x, 3x, 5x, or 10x. If you want to go all out and make the X-Treme bet, 10 credits per line, both the fourth and fifth reels are activated. Now, payouts can be multiplied by as much as 100x. You can also get help on how to make an X-Treme bet, by clicking the video help button for more information.

Reel Symbols

The reel symbols used in this game include: three shades of 7, single bar, double bar, and triple bar. Along with this, the fourth and fifth reels show the multiplier.

Can’t Lose Bonus

When a Can’t Lose symbol lands on the center of any payline, the Can’t Lose bonus spin feature is activated. This is a free spin that guarantees a win. You don’t have to redeem this spin right away – you can hold onto it if you desire. When you the bet the maximum credits you can store up to 99 bonus spins at a time.

My Experience

Outside of the X-Treme Reels feature, another reason to play Magic Crystal slots is the variety of low betting denominations. Your options include: $.01, $.02, $.05, and $.10 per line. There are 10 lines in total.

Even though this game is similar to other WMS games, I never have much success. The same cannot be said for the guy sitting next to me last month at Caesars in Vegas. Out of the corner of my eye I saw him activate the 100x multiplier and win more than 5,000 credits. Even though I have been shut out by this game in the past, it is obvious that many other players are winning big. For that reason, I’m not quite ready to give up on this one.
