Magnetz is a new online video slot game that was created by the developers at Relax Gaming. Other slot games that you might recognise from Relax Gaming include titles such as Star Clusters, Atlantis Megaways, Book of Gods, and Yummy Wilds. Their latest game, Magnetz, has a genuinely unique grid layout that brings something fresh to the online slot category. Instead of repackaging an old game with new graphics, this game delivers something entirely new. It’s great to see someone pushing the boundaries.
Bets start from as little as £0.10 per spin, reaching a maximum of £50 per spin for those wanting to risk more for higher returns. The game is filled with exciting features like multiplier free spins, wild symbols, cluster wins, re-spins, and a special bonus feature called magnetic merge. On top of all of these features, the maximum jackpot in the game, which is available in the bonus round, is 2000x your stake!
Graphics and Theme
The look and feel of the game is inspired by science fiction. The backdrop to the reels looks like it could be a set in either the Matrix or Star Wars movies. The reels appear to be sitting inside the atrium of a futuristic spaceship. Blue light beams down from the skylights, which gives the game a slightly mysterious feeling. The reels themselves are colourful because of the design of the symbols. The colour helps you focus your attention on where the action is taking place.
The soundtrack continues the sci-fi theme and features a gentle repetitive trance track that makes you feel like you’re on a journey in outer space. When you hit spin, the reels make a loud rumbling noise as the symbols disappear. When the symbols reappear, they land on the reels with a quick flickering noise. If you’re lucky enough to land a winning combination, the game will let you know with a simple win noise.
Before we get into the details of the game, it’s important to note that Magnetz works off a cluster payout system. You’ll need to land five or more of the same symbols on adjacent reel positions to trigger a payout. Also, the game is split into four, 4×3 sections, each with a corresponding centre magnet.
There are six regular symbols in the game, all of which have their own colour and feature shape on them. The three low paying symbols include a blue circle, a purple crescent, and a golden triangle. They will pay a maximum of £750 for a cluster of 20. The high paying symbols include an orange diamond, a pink hexagon, and a red star. The red star is the most valuable piece and pays out £10,000 for a cluster of 20.
There are five wild symbols with various multipliers attached to them. One wild has no multiplier and the others have a 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x multiplier associated with them. They can be used to substitute any of the symbols in the game.
Flux re-spin feature
Four central magnets sit next to the four blocks of symbols. On every spin, the centre magnets will transform into one of the six symbols. When you land five or more symbols in one of the 4×3 blocks that match the adjacent centre magnet, you will trigger a re-spin. This can keep rolling until you no longer land five matching symbols.
Magnetic merge feature
If two or more of the centre magnets reveal the same symbol, they will merge and combine the two 4×3 blocks of symbols. This increases your chance of triggering the re-spin feature and allows you to create larger cluster wins.
You will notice the word BONUS written across the middle of the reels. To trigger the free spins round, you will need to light up the whole word which is achieved by landing the corresponding letters anywhere on the reels. You will need to land every letter to unlock five free spins. During the free spins round, the upper and lower grids merge so that you will play on two large 9×3 grids. This gives you more opportunity to trigger the re-spin feature, which remains active in the free spins round.
Game How to Play
Although there are a lot of moving parts to this top-rated online slot, it follows a similar, easy-to-follow gameplay that you will recognise from other slot games. The first thing you need to do is select your betting range, which starts from £0.10 per spin and goes up to a maximum of £50 per spin. Then, you need to hit spin or use the auto spin feature and wait for clusters of five or more symbols to land anywhere on the four, 4×3 grids of symbols.
