Symbols and multipliers
Symbols of Magic Owl include both regular and bonus pictures. The former ones produce winning combinations. The latter symbols perform some extra functions.
- 3, 4 and 5 symbols of an owl pay 25, 100 and 250 times your total bet
- A droplet — 20, 50 and 150
- A candle and a glass — 15, 30 and 100
- Playing cards A and K — 10, 20 and 75
- Q and J —5, 10 and 50
To calculate your win for the combination you need to multiply its appropriate factor by your line bet.
A winning combination has to land from left to right along a payline. If several winning combinations come up on the reels, all of your rewards will be added up.
Special symbols of Magic Owl include:
- The Wild symbol represented as the picture of a witch that replaces other symbols, except for the Scatter. This is how this symbol can complete winning combinations. For 3, 4 and 5 Wilds you will get 50, 200 and 500 times your line bet
- The Scatter symbol is a crystal ball that launches free spins. Three Scatters can land anywhere on the reels
Three or more scatter symbols of the Red Crystal Ball landing on the reels will trigger a series of 5 free spins. Characteristics of the bonus round:
- The picture of an owl and the Wild symbol will merge into one picture
- You cannot change your bet size or the number of paylines. Your winnings are paid according to the bets that you had set before the round of free spins were triggered
- Three or more Scatters landed on the reels will relaunch the round of free spins
- All your credits will remain in your balance
Once you land any winning combo after a regular spin, you will get a chance to boost your winnings in the risk game. Click the Gamble button to activate this round. In the risk game you will be asked to:
- Guess the colour of a card (either red or black) to double your previous win
- Guess the suit of the card (spades, clubs, hearts or diamonds) and quadruple your reward
By guessing the colour or the suit not only will you increase your win, but you will also get a chance to continue playing this round.
The wrong answer will wipe out your winnings for the round and for the previous spin and the risk game will come to an end. You can also use the Half button to risk only a half of your winnings that you earned in the previous spin.
