Design and Gameplay
Fugaso’s Magic Destiny makes you feel as though you just entered the fortuneteller’s tent, which is hidden deep in the forbidden forest. As you sit on a table riddled with enchanted objects the mysterious cloaked man takes you for a risk taker and presents you with an opportunity that a few have had the chance to be a part of. He magically summons a slot game and bids you good luck.
It utilizes a 5 x 4 reels matrix with 40 paylines. The fixed paylines are locked as decided by the fortuneteller who has seen in your future nothing but golden horizons. The imagery is very mystic, and achieves a feeling of having your destiny told. The high paying symbols are well fitted with the tone of the game and are expertly drawn. As for the graphics, in all honesty, there’s nothing special about them except for some cool little details, like the flickering candle flame and the essence of crystal. Nevertheless the immersion does not change because of the quality of the graphics. The immersive element is further boosted by the captivating music and sound effects. It has a specific sound that reminded us of the Harry Potter series, and for that feeling we give it praise.
Fugaso has included a peculiar bonus feature that we can’t say we’ve seen anywhere else. Aside from the Free Spins, this is the only feature.
Called Super Destiny this feature is a stack of symbols that appear on the reels. The symbol is randomly selected and appears in stacks in the beginning of each new spin. For every new spin, all five reels’ number of adjacent positions are randomly replaced with one symbol from the paytable. All symbols, except the scatter one.
Speaking of the scatter, land on 3 or more and activate the Free Spins option. Three scatters activate 10 free spins. Four scatters give you 15 free spins, while five scatter grant you 20 free spins.
Last but not least is the Wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols, save for the scatter.
There is a peculiarity about Magic Destiny, and we’re not sure if that is necessarily a good thing. With a great idea for a theme, it is delivered humbly save for the fantastic ambient music. What sets this slots title from others is the rather confusing bonus feature that is likely to turn some players away from Magic Destiny. However, let us not forget that fortune favors the bold.
