The inventive casino game designer, NYX Interactive has managed to come up with something deliciously different with its Abracardabra slot game. The game is a slots-video poker hybrid that’s utterly different to anything you’ve ever seen before. With five reels and just one payline, it boasts a unique appearance and playing style. Like a video poker game, it allows you to Hold and Draw cards with each round, but like an online slot, it awards prizes for matching symbols.
Another thing that’s unusual about the slot is its dual themes. The background makes you feel as if you’re sat in the audience of a live magic show, while the fruit-themed symbols that appear on the reels also give it the appearance of a classic slot. So, if you’re curious to find out more about this innovative NYX Interactive title, get ready to place your bets for the chance to conjure up prizes worth as much as 250,000 coins!
When the Abracardabra slot first loads, it displays a mini-version of the rules as well as a brief introduction that explains it’s a poker-style slot game which uses fruit symbols on playing cards. You can continue reading the full rules by clicking the left and right arrows, and when you’re ready to begin, click the “X” icon.
Stage lights flood the stage area which is concealed by a red curtain featuring moons and stars as the music starts to play. Where you’d normally expect to see five reels with three or four rows of symbols, you have one horizontal line made up of five face-down playing cards.
The slot’s paytable can be viewed at all times across the bottom of the screen. There are also two icons at the bottom-left which let you turn the music and sound effects on and off.
Once you’ve chosen your preferred stake size using the up and down arrows at the bottom-right, you need to click the green “Deal” button to begin. When all five cards have been turned over, you get the option to either “Hold” single or multiple cards or “Draw”. Selecting “Draw” removes any unheld cards and deals further cards until five are displayed across the screen.
When three, four or five of the same card appear, you win the associated prize shown on the pay table.
This slot does not have any wild symbol present.
The Abracardabra slot game uses a “Bonus” card, and when three, four or five appear on the screen, you receive a x1, x2 or x10 multiplier respectively. The playing area is then cleared, and seventeen cards are dealt, which fill up the top five card positions as well as the twelve smaller card positions underneath. Wins are subsequently awarded, and the winning cards are removed. The cards are then shuffled and new ones dealt, and when no more wins are possible, the bonus ends.
The slot game also comes with a randomly-triggered Magic Hat Bonus. When the Magician’s Hat is displayed, new cards appear from the hat to replace the ones already shown on the screen which have the potential to create a winning combination.
