A magical enchanted forest sets the backdrop for Elven Magic; a feature-heavy, fantasy themed slot from Red Tiger Gaming. Elven Magic has a five reel, twenty payline game engine and it comes with a quartet of randomly triggered main game extras.
The woodland location for the reel-spinning action is adorned with decorative branches twisting around the symbols and combined with a genteel soundtrack to supplement the gameplay.
The high-value symbols in Elven Magic include a gold ring, the blonde elf, some golden arrows and a jewelled brooch. The lower-value icons are the playing card symbols in green, purple, blue and red.
The golden shield symbol is the game's wild, and it will replace for all others to help form winning combinations except for the archer's target icon that is the game's scatter symbol.
Bonus Features of Elven Magic
The Archery Bonus is activated when players land at least three of the archer's target scatter symbols anywhere along the paylines; Players must select one of the three quivers available and then shoot those arrows towards the target to earn themselves the respective multiplier values.
The Elf Queen will then also aim at the archery target. Depending on where her arrow lands, a prize is granted to the player.
The outer ring grant prizes worth one, two, five or six times the player's total stake. The second ring pays six, eight, ten or twelve times their bet with the third and final ring paying eighteen, twenty, twenty-eight or a thirty times multiplier. Players who land a bullseye will pocket the highest bonus within the game, winning a walloping 500 times their total bet stake.
After players have fired all of their arrows, the combined values are totalled together and applied to their entire stake per spin. Players could win prizes of up to 1,000 times their bet!
Elven features are randomly activated in the main game, and an elf will shoot arrows towards the reels with the following outcomes:
Arrow of Wild feature – the Elf Queen shoots her arrow at the reels, making a random selection of symbols to spin, thus creating a brand-new winning combination.
Arrow of Nature feature – the Queen’s arrows generate a random selection of icons to become wild. A fresh payout is made with the new wilds in position.
Arrow of Ice feature – a selection of icons is locked in position. A re-spin then begins.
The Progressive Jackpot is activated from the main game by landing three of the jackpot icons that will either award the Mega or Mini prizes displayed to the left of the reels. Plus, there is a Daily Jackpot that has to pay out before the time elapses.
For fans of progressive jackpots, then Elven Magic should be right up their street. Throw in various reel modifiers and archery-themed features then this game is enough to draw in punters. Despite the lack of free spins, the bright design is exquisitely done, backed by fantastical audios. The four arrow features land frequently, and the Archery Bonus round offers some tremendous potential wins.
