Fans of the original magic shows will be happy to see the latest slot to go live at Microgaming casinos, The Great Albini. It’s a slot which was created by a Microgaming partner, called Foxium, and it’s got a lot of pros to its name, ranging from great graphics, to high RTP and excellent top payouts.
The original game will feature 5x4 reels and 25 lines, but the slot will have a side with 5x6 reels and 50 lines as well, and obviously the free spins are the ones offering the richer game area. In addition to an RTP of 96.6%, the slot also mentions top payouts of $200,000 (4,000x the stake), while for its features there will be wilds, re-spins, free spins, stacked wilds and multipliers in play.
Betting and Prizes
It’s a simple betting system, which lets you select the total amount going into each spin. There are 9 possible values listed, between $0.25 and $50, which means that the line bet will be $0.01 to $2.
The ultimate reward which this game can promise is worth 4,000x the amount you’ve put into it, so at its maximum bet it can pay $200,000 in one free spin. It’s only 1,000x for a regular paid spin. They’ve announced an RTP of 96.6% for The Great Albini, which is another area where the game does very well.
While the game has good potential, and it can be very rewarding under the right circumstances, it’s also highly volatile and your results may vary greatly with it.
The simplest feature involved in The Great Albini is the Wild, which is even coming in a simple form, with just its own logo to represent it on the reels. The reels 2 through 5 can get it, and the symbol may be used as a replacement for other icons, but not for the feature icons.
Stacked Mystery Box symbols are available in the game, and should they cover the entire 3rd reel, they will trigger their own special feature. It will involve 3 respins, during which Mystery Box icons are locked wherever they appear. You can get additional respins this way as well. Once the respins are over, the Mystery Boxes will finally transform and give you a lot of matching symbols on the reels.
12 free spins will also be available, but these will activate only if you get their triggering symbols on all three middle reels. The thing that makes them fun is that they have 5x6 reels and 50 lines, plus they can give you the Lily feature.
Lily feature will require the Lily symbol on one of the middle three columns, where it should cover it completely. 2X multipliers will apply to the wins which the wild helps form. Respins are also mentioned, as part of the abilities of the Lily wild.
The possibility to purchase access to the free spins is there as well, and you use the Bonus Box option to get it. You do have to pay 100x to 150x the wager, in order to get 8 to 12 free spins.
Theme & Design
It’s a classic magic themed game, with a retro vibe, which appears to come from the first half of the 20th century. It’s beautifully designed, showing off images of the magician, his assistant, a few other magic related objects and plenty of Royals.
The Great Albini can be plenty of fun for a regular player, and it’s a slot machine which excels through its payouts and features most of all.
