I am a huge fan of manga, as I love the style that Japanese artists draw with, and the stories have many times have brought me in and not let me go. Stories like Dragonball, Akira, and Pokemon have all held my attention for years, and they're some of my favorite stories. Playtech is playing off of manga fans like me with their Magical Stacks slot, which pits players at a slot with several features based on the entertainment medium.
Magical Stacks is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that features a combination of classic slot symbols (made to look like Japanese letters) as well as cherries, watermelons, bars, bells, 7s, cats, a boy and a girl, and a mystery block (think Super Mario Bros.). The game's features include wild symbols, scatter symbols, free spins, and stacked symbols. The free spins mode is actually pretty cool, as they can re-triggered infinitely. Playtech also claims that the game has a posted Return to Player (RTP) percentage of 95%, which is about average for a slot.
I have played the game quite extensively, and can say that while the game isn't my favorite of all time, it is a more than serviceable option for players. The game looks sharp and makes you think that you're in a land casino sitting at a video station, and you'll also find that the music is awesome. I had a lot of fun playing this game, and I think that I'd probably come back to it at some point if I were looking for additional games to play. I really enjoyed that free spins round, as I re-triggered the free spins four different times during my session, which led to me racking up some huge wins.
If you're an anime or manga fan, then this is the slot for you.
