Common characters in magic slots
The theme wouldn’t be as popular if it wasn’t for the witches, wizards and sorcerers that appear in so many slots. Whilst they all use their magical powers, it is the wizard that is the most common, due to the belief that he will use his magic for the powers of good, such as helping you win an impressive prize. Slots like Alchymedes, The Wiz, Lucky Wizard and Pig Wizard all include a main wizard character who will help you on your quest to bring a large balance home with you. Whilst not featured quite as much as wizards, witches do still appear, in slots such as Witches Brew and Charms and Witches.
There are hundreds of magical creatures out there which feature in legends and folklore from many different countries. Arguably the most recognisable creature found in slots is the leprechaun. Usually found sitting at the end of a rainbow guarding a pot o gold, the Irish man in green may grant you wishes to help you win. The inclusion of a leprechaun usually means that the slot you have chosen will be fun to play, and often a little comical, as he bounds around the screen helping you, or on occasion, preventing you from finding the riches. You can find the leprechaun in slots such as Finn and the Swirly Spin, Wish upon a Leprechaun and Under the Rainbow.
Included in the magic theme are whimsical elements, usually in the form of fairies, pixies and unicorns. These characters are kind and loving, and it usually means that beautiful graphics depicting forest, meadow or stream settings are included. With their woodland hideout keeping them safe from the outside world, players can rely on these characters to help, with slots such as Pixies of the Forest, Twinkle and Enchanted Fairy guaranteed to make you feel magical.
Based on other stories
The magic theme includes a wide number of slots that are based on other tales, particularly fairytales. You can expect to see characters from a number of children’s stories on the reels with Big Bad Wolf, Cinderella, Fairytale Legends Hansel and Gretel, Pinocchio and Snow White and the 7 Features amongst the many slots lifted straight from the pages of books, albeit with several alterations.
There are also other slots that you may find familiar due to their theme’s inclusion on TV or film. The most common are the slots with links to The Wizard of Oz, with World of Oz, Yellow Brick Reels, Book of Oz and Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers being just a handful.
