Microgaming has just released their latest video pokie game, Ninja Magic, which is available for play over their network in download, instant play and mobile mode. There wasn’t much info about this pokie and it seems it was quietly launched in the background. Instead another video pokie game with the same design and features, Electric Diva, received much more attention. Either way both of the games are the same so players have a choice which one to play.
Ninja Magic has the standard 5 reels and 3 rows, but has 40 active pay lines in total which is a bit unusual for a 3 row design. The bets can go from as low as $0.40 up to $200 per spin and players can use the Auto Play option for longer sessions. The variance is set at medium so you can expect medium to big wins on the reels.
What’s interesting about Ninja Magic is the bonus feature where players have the chance to win up to 40 free spins and a high x 8 multiplier attached.
These numbers and the fact that it’s a Microgaming video pokie game are sure to attract a lot of players to try Ninja Magic for real play across the Microgaming platform.
What We love
What every player is sure to love in Ninja Magic is the bonus feature and the big payouts it can produce. It’s strange to see how it is triggered and how the free spins and multipliers are won, but it’s an interesting concept that we like.
The standard scatters trigger the bonus round but 3, 4 or 5 scatters award only 1, 2, 3 free spins and a x1, x2 or x3 multiplier accordingly.
We like the fact that you play a separate pick bonus round, where you choose which bugs to slain and they award free spins and multipliers in return. This detail makes the entire feature more interesting and tempting.
What we Do not Like
We can say that we are not really happy with the symbol payouts in Ninja Magic. The regular symbols have small payouts attached so base play can be brutal for your balance.
Even the bonus round wont award any decent wins if you don’t get a big multiplier. The highest paying symbols are the wild and scatter awarding 300 and 100 x total bet payouts.
We think that the designers could have worked out the payouts to be a bit higher since the multiplier value in the free spins is not guaranteed.
Almost every Microgaming video pokie game is worth playing, especially the new releases. Ninja Magic has the potential to pay big, but you have to agree that a lot of details need to come in place and you need to be extremely lucky for that to happen.
You could get up to 2,400 x total bet in a single spin, for 5 wilds on a pay line with a x8 multiplier, but that seems like an impossible win. Still the big number of pay lines with the 3 row design does leave room for many winning combinations to land and decent wins to occur.
