Powered by Betsoft, True Illusions has five reels and three rows and up to thirty paylines; where the gameplay is set on the grandest of all stages, the performance of the theatre.
Red curtains and gold sashes frame the display screen with the dapper of all magicians taking centre stage - players will find the greatest showman standing to the screen's left-hand side, occasionally displaying a bunch of flowers as "if from magic."
The gameplay itself is particularly compelling because it conveys the mysterious and magical connotations that the audience feel like when children attending their first magic show.
How to play True Illusions
Before players begin to show off their repertoire of magical skills they should consider adjusting their game settings first.
Pressing “Choose Coin” will determine the coin value ranges.
Clicking on the “Select Lines” button will amend the number of paylines that players wish to play within their said game.
Pressing on “Bet Per Line” decides the number of coins to bet per active paylines.
Hitting “Spin” starts the game and will begin to spin the reels in action.
Players who prefer high-rolling games can click the “Max Bet Spin” button and this automatically set's the reels to the highest wager possible.
Symbols in True Illusions
The original game icons in True Illusions consist of a locked chest, the magician’s assistant, a guillotine, a dove, a gold coin, a dove, a top hat and a crystal ball.
The wild symbol in True Illusions is a blue and gold ‘Wild’ icon, and it replaces all other symbols in the game except the bonus icons – which are the playing cards and the magician’s face. It is these symbols that will trigger the separate bonus features listed below.
Bonus features of True Illusions
The Free Spins in True Illusions are activated by landing three or more of the magician scatter icons anywhere on enabled active paylines. The Free Spins begin automatically, and during the bonus round feature any winning combinations will disappear after they have paid out. What happens next is that free space has been left and more symbols from above land in their place, generating more winning combinations and this process continues.
The Wild Reel feature is where players can land wild symbols on all positions on the middle reel, thus triggering this bonus. Players once again receive more free spins, and the reel is locked simultaneously.
Pick A Card Bonus
The Pick A Card Bonus is activated when players land three or more of the scatter icons, represented by the playing cards anywhere on active paylines. Players must merely choose one of the cards to receive a cash prize.
True Illusions is a high-quality slot and genuine fun to play; players will love the magnified free spins round with the cascading icons, and all three bonuses trigger quite commonly.
True Illusions is a magician-themed video slot game for the amateur magician or illusionist. Whatever players feel towards the mystery of magic, this game undoubtedly brings out the childishness in people as its graphics and visualisations awe users.
