The Great Casini comes to us from Amaya Gaming and is set in the early years of the 19th Century, when there was a famous magician of the same name. This game is full of tricks as you navigate this 5-reel game with 15 fixed paylines. You’ll find yourself knife throwing when playing the mini Bonus game and racking up lots of wins triggering multiple Free Spin rounds.
This is a vividly coloured game that takes place at the top of a scroll lying across a theatre in the background. At the bottom of your screen are two rows of sets in grey, with long curtains in red velvet taking up most of the background. The symbols are drawn in a somewhat dark style and are reminiscent of magic tricks you may have seen in childhood. The symbols with the lowest values are from a magician’s deck of cards, with the Jack, Queen, King and Ace drawn to resemble an antique board game.
The symbols with higher values include a box with a padlock, a set of silver cups, a birdcage draped in cloth and a sparkling bright cannon. The Wild symbol is a couple of gloved hands dealing cards and the Free Spins symbol features The Great Casini himself.
Features are Magical
Like most magicians, The Great Casini relishes appearing before a crowd, so it’s not surprising that he shows up on his Free Spins icon quite often. You will see him pop up on reels 1 and 5 only, however if he appears on both simultaneously, you win 3 free spins. These happen quickly and anything you win gets you a 3X multiplier.
The Scatter symbols are the Magic Egg and the Magic Handkerchief and if 3 pop up on a single spin, you can possibly fill up winning paylines, which wouldn’t otherwise count.
Bonus associated with The Great Casini
The Knife Throwing Bonus is a mini-game feature that you can play when the Top Hat Bonus symbol pops up on a winning payline, appearing on reels 1, 2 and 3. The screen will then switch over to one showing a beautiful woman stuck to the centre of a wooden wheel.
When you click on the “Throw” button you will be tossing two knives towards the wheel. If your knives land on two prizes, you will be awarded the amount shown to end the game. If you hit The Great Casini, you move on to round two, which has bigger prizes. If your luck holds out and you hit him again, you move to the 3rd level and an opportunity to win the prizes with the highest value.
Review of The Great Casini
The Great Casini is designed for players who are more prone to placing smaller bets. This is still a fun game, with a very interesting theme conjuring up thoughts of childish fun. If you like magical slot games you might want to try Merlin’s Millions, another game from Amaya Gaming. This one offers an entirely different experience, one we think you’ll enjoy.
