Slot Magic: Written & Video iPad App Review
If you’re like us—which if so, God help you—then you like a bit of poky play. That is to say, you have a soft spot for everyone’s favorite casino racket, the slot machines. However, you also like having money, which makes indulging in that primary habit quite hard. What’s the solution? Finding a good slots app on the iPad, of course! Our best suggestion? Well, it’s actually Slot Magic by developer Prestige Gaming. This iPad game app makes it simple and easy for us to indulge every aspect of slot machine gaming that we love so much, and without spending all our savings! For our full review, you need only to look below beyond the break.
Concept and Gameplay
It sort of goes without saying, of course, that Slot Magic is, you know, a slot machine application. This means you’ll be staring at a set of reels, which you’re then allowed to bet on—as par for the course. And for the most part, Slot Magic sticks to this tried and true formula. It offers a mountain of different machines to unlock, each arriving with its own unique set of rules and functions. You’re also allowed to change the number of lines and bets that you can cast with each machine, which is appreciated.
However, Slot Magic does its best to liven up the intense yet repetitive activity. For instance, playing will unlock new levels, which unlocks new machines. Each new level up also allows you a go with a magic wand, which changes the odds in your favor. This is really quite a unique concept, and we haven’t seen it anywhere else. Furthermore, the app has copious amounts of bonus rounds to take you away from the leather seat occasionally.
Design and Interface
We hate complicated slots. We really do, and with good reason: They’re irritatingly hard to follow. Thankfully, Slot Magic still offers complex machines—which offer good results—but with the security of a slick and easy-to-master interface. Press a few buttons, and you’re rolling! It could not be simpler, and Slot Magic even includes an auto spin function which helps us spend money more quickly, and rake in the rewards post-haste. All in all, the game also looks gorgeous on both the iPad and iPhone, though we preferred the larger screen real-estate of the iPad.
At the end of the day, Slot Magic is a fantastic slots game for the iPad and iPhone, and if you’re in need of a free option to scratch that itch, we’d hardly recommend anything else over it. It’s got all the twists and turns that you need, as well as copious amounts of reasons to continue to play it. Just promise not to get too addicted, okay Cowboy?
Slot Magic requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review, as well as a video production fee.
