Super heroes are a big deal in any form of media, and you can see the influence in MGA's Mr. Magnifico slot. This game is based around a super hero with powers from another world, and he'll help you to get lots of winnings. The graphical style is appropriate with a comic book-style approach, and you'll find different characters on the screen and in the background that make up the fictional universe that this character is located inside of.
A very old layout is used for the basis of this game, and that is three reels with just a single payline. Many of the very first slots ever were used with this layout, and it's known by most players for generating very boring games. That's not the case here, and it's definitely one of the most feature-packed games we've ever seen in the classic slot space.
Betting is set up in a way that makes it really easy to figure out exactly how much you're betting per spin. Because there is just one payline to worry about, you'll choose a single coin size that will also double as your total bet size. This makes it about as easy as it can get to choose how much you want to wager on each spin. With that having been said, you should always bet five coins per spin to get the best RTP.
Mini-Game Bonus Feature Options
There are four mini-games in this slot that you can access for what amount to mostly instant-win style bonus features. You can get three of the capsule symbol for a game based on Mr. Magnifico's powers in his hands, or you can line up three of the bag symbol to access a mini-game where you chase after some burglars. Three of the ring symbol takes you to a dressing room game where you can get some solid wins for picking an outfit, and the fourth and final mini-game requires three of the car symbol, and this takes you to a feature based completely around competing in a race.
Nudges and Holds
You have two random options that happen that can give you better chances of hitting extra winning combinations. The first is the nudge feature. You'll have up to four nudges on a single spin, and they allow you to move a reel one time in the downward direction. You cannot nudge reels upward with this feature. The other is the hold option, and that gives you the ability to hold one or two reels in place for the next spin to give you better chances to hit higher combinations.
The basic strategy with the nudge feature is to look at the paytable and use that to decide which combination of nudges will give you the best possible payout. There's a little bit of skill in this, but it's not difficult once you get the hang of it. For the hold feature, you essentially want to hold any two matching symbols on the payline. If you don't have two matching symbols, then pick the one highest-paying symbol instead.
Up Your Reward Feature
We mentioned above that this is a feature-packed slot in spite of having just one reel, and this is yet another way to get extra payouts. You'll always get the Up Your Reward Feature on a winning spin, and it guarantees that the very next spin will give you an even bigger payout. The net effect is giving you an instant win based on a prize that's larger than your current win, and that's something we think all players can get behind.
Symbol Set and Payouts
Despite the interesting characters that this game has to offer, the symbol set is extremely generic. When you're betting five coins, you'll get 1,000x for three of a kind of the blue diamond symbol, the best-paying symbol in the game. The red and green diamonds give you 300x and 50x, respectively. Any combination of three mismatched diamonds is worth 2x.
Fruit symbols make up the remainder of what's available for payouts. Three of the bells or three of the strawberries pay out 15x and 12x, respectively, and you can make it 9x for three of the lemon symbol. The plums are worth 6x for three, and you'll earn a 3x win for three of the orange symbol.
Mr. Magnifico is a classic slot with a lot more action than you'd expect to see from a one-payline game, and MGA has done a good job with packing as many features into this game as they possibly could. While the characters and theme of the game are pretty good, and the gameplay is solid as well, we feel like the symbol set is super out-of-place and completely mismatched with everything else this slot has to offer. If that doesn't bother you, then you won't mind, but if it does, it'll make it hard to enjoy this particular game.
