Theme, graphics & soundtrack
If you know Fun Ta Gaming for Asian-inspired slots such as Tai Chi Panda, you will appreciate that this Harry Potter-inspired slot is a bit of a new direction. Fans will appreciate the fabulous cartoon-style graphics that give a new twist to familiar elements; what’s more, there is a soundalike soundtrack to keep you immersed.
The graphic elements really are worth checking out, from the superbly animated potions bonus game to the paytable symbols and the magical library background. There is a Dumbledore-esque figure who appears stacked during the free spins alongside the star pupil, who in this slot is a cute girl.
Grumpy owls, magic hats and potions make up the rest of the high paytable symbols, and there are four symbols representing the suits of cards. With its well-styled animations and beautifully cohesive gameplay, this magic themed slots game really makes the most of its material.
