Street Magic is the trashy cousin of the magic world, often giving us scumbags who try to do a cheap trick or two for a chance of a passerby dropping a bit of change in their bucket. Don't believe me? Then head on over to Las Vegas or any major tourist destination that's prominent outside and see for yourself. It's seriously lame. Play'n Go is dishing out some of this lameness to us with their Street Magic slot, which sees you having to tolerate an emo-magician for a chance of earning some cash.
Street Magic is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that's got a smoky alley covered with graffiti where this grifter apparently does his work. The game mixes in standard slot symbols (clubs, spades, hearts, diamonds) along with a bunch of standard magic symbols such as locks, pocket watches, handcuffs, swords through cards, rings, and gold cards. The magician himself also pops up from time to time, and he acts as both a scatter and a wild symbol, and can expand to take over an entire reel.
The game's features are pretty basic and include growing symbols, wilds, scatters, free spins, and transporting symbols. You can trigger expanding or random wilds when you land two or more scatter symbols. Spin up three scatters and you will be taken to a free spins round that will be familiar to any of you that have played NetEnt's wildly popular Dead or Alive slot machine. Yes indeed, wild symbols are sticky during the free spins round on Street Magic. And just like Dead or Alive if you manage to get a wild symbol in any position on all of the five reels, you will get an extra set of free spins to rack up the massive wins with the wilds held in place.
The game does have built in mobile compatibility, but this slot just doesn't look all that great, especially when you compare it to a lot of the other recent releases from Play'n Go. There just isn't that much that makes this slot pop. That being said, there will be people that enjoy this game based on the magic theme and the bonus round's similarity to Dead or Alive. If you're one of these people, then more power to you. I hope you enjoy your time with this magician and pray that he doesn't grift you out of too much spare change.
