The title of this slot may lead one down a path that ends in a trippy experience on psilocybin but fortunately, or unfortunately, that’s not the theme on the reels of this Magic Mushrooms slot by creative developers Yggdrasil. The game is centred round some rather bizarre forest creatures that spend their days in dark burrows lit up by their own internal magic. Definitely a more whimsical theme choice for this slot game, the graphics and layout also allow for a more encompassing atmosphere. All in all though, regardless how difficult the actual theme is to discern, the appearance of this slot during the game is rather mesmerising.
Behind all the whimsy and forest life there is also a slot game though. In this Magic Mushrooms slot players will find a rather unique set of 5 reels, with 3 rows on the outer reels and then progressively an additional one with the middle reels holding 5 rows of symbols. Add to this a peculiar set of 40 pay lines, with 20 running from left to right and 20 from right to left. There is a coin bet option available that allows players to pick, to a degree, their level of game. Definitely inclined toward the more mesmerising with the theme and setup, the bonus feature of this slot are the more traditional Wild and free spins, though there are 3 different Wilds which is quite interesting.
Understanding the Theme of Magic Mushrooms Slot
The nice thing with the theme of this online slot is that unlike themes of many slots available here for you, it doesn’t really attach its roots into any one place, and rather creates a slightly random but wholly interesting presence on the screen. The reels aren’t fixed in a table like structure, which adds a sense of freedom to the spinning, whilst the pay lines operate from both ends and make the identifying of wins a more consequential task. The backdrop is of a murky green blue, suggestive of deep forest or cavern, whilst the subtle sound effects make playing this game not on mute bearable. Overall the different potential thematic aspects in play in this Magic Mushrooms slot pull together quite nicely for delivery.
The symbols of this game from Yggdrasil are definitely highlight of the theme employed on the screen. These include various, unidentifiable creatures, based wholly in the planes of whimsy. Half of the symbols are of these critters whilst the other half seem to be cocoons or some other forms of gestation for the aforementioned critters.
Whimsical Bonus Features of Magic Mushrooms Slot
Magic Mushrooms slot has two main bonus features, the Wilds and the free spins feature. On the topic of Wilds, this online slot from Yggdrasil has 3 different Wild symbols available to the players. These include the purple mushroom which only appears on the outermost reels. The blue mushroom which only appears on reels 2 and 4 whilst triggering a multiplier of up to 10 times to any win formed with it. The final Wild is the red mushroom and can infect other symbols on the reels if it lands on the middle reel.
The free spins in this Magic Mushrooms slot is triggered through the strange glowing snail symbol on the reels when players land 3 or more of them anywhere. This awards between 10 and 75 free spins depending on how many triggering symbols there are.
