There are magical themes in all kinds of different media, and there are plenty of different variations on those themes. The Lines of Magic slot by Felix Gaming focuses on a "high fantasy" style of magic, and you'll see all kinds of symbols reflecting that in the background and on the reels. There's somewhat of a slant towards the alchemy side of things, and all of this is depicted with a very solid style of graphics that borders between hand-drawn and computer-generated in a lot of ways.
Format and Layout
On the surface, there's a pretty standardized format used in this slot with five reels, three rows and 20 paylines. Every aspect of this game's betting can be adjusted, and you can play with as many paylines as you want as a result. We recommend keeping it at 20 paylines, which is the maximum, and adjusting the other betting options exclusively. You can bet up to 10 coins on each of the 20 paylines, and coins range from $0.01 to $0.05 each. As a result of all of these betting options, you have a ton of control over how much you wager.
An important part of this game is collecting the green potions. They show up on every reel, and whenever you pick one up, it adds to the green meter that you see on the side of the reels. A total of 35 of these are needed to trigger the bonus feature, but the counter resets whenever you stop the game or whenever you change bet sizes. If you go back to your previous settings, the amount of green potion you had collected is remembered, but we recommend that players find a bet size that they are comfortable with and stick to it to maximize the value from the bonus feature.
Scatters and Free Spins
The golden, six-pointed star with a blue background is the scatter in this game, and it appears on every one of the five reels. Five of a kind earns 20x, four gets you 5x, and three pays out 2x. You can earn 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier if you pick up at least three of these anywhere on the reels, and that gives you a pretty good value. We're a fan of this game having multiple bonus features, and it fits the higher volatility reflected by the overall pay table.
Wild Spellbook Symbols
The spellbook is wild in this game, which makes sense with it being a magic-centric slot. In Lines of Magic, you'll get 250x for five of the wild spellbook. The wins in this game are multiplied by your total bet size, so that's comparable to a 5,000x jackpot in games that use the line bet convention, so it's a pretty solid payouts. You'll get 37.50x for four of a kind, 10x for three and 0.50x for two of a kind in this wild symbol.
The two of a kind payout for wilds is important because it acts as a minimum for three of a kind wins. If you get two wilds with a third symbol that would normally pay 0.25x, for example, then you'll be paid 0.50x instead since that's the highest available win for that particular payline. We think it's important to understand how the value works with this particular payout because it's a smart way to increase the wins players get on the bottom end of the pay scale.
Other Important Payouts
There's a wizard holding a scroll and a potion that pays 37.50x for five of a kind. You can also pick up 20x for five of the lucky seven symbol. The bag of gems pays 12.50x for five of a kind, and that rounds out the top end of the pay table.
On the bottom end, you can earn 6.25x for five of the red A, yellow K or blue Q. Five of the green J, purple 10 or red 9 pay 5x for the lowest pays in the game.
This is a slot that has pretty solid graphics and a high-volatility style of gameplay. It doesn't have the most diverse arrangement of features, but the fact that they are triggered in different ways that both reflect the overall magical theme is a solid way of immersing the player. Overall, we think this game as a whole is above-average, but Lines of Magic doesn't quite hold up against the best that the industry has to offer. With that having been said, there is no shame in being well above-average in the competitive arena that is the online slots world, and Felix Gaming has done a solid job with this particular title.
