Magical Stacks SlotMagical Stacks is an unusual offering by software supplier Playtech which resembles a Japanese arcade game. This is a five-reel slot which features 20 adjustable paylines, bold neon lights, and plenty of useful functionalities. The software developers at Playtech have used classic slot symbols styled to resemble Japanese letters as well as the traditional lucky sevens, bells, bars, cherries, and watermelons.

The game also offers a number of special features, including wilds, scatters, free spins rounds, and the stacked symbols it borrows its name from. These so-called “mystery” stacks appear on the reels at random in both the main game and the bonus round of free spins, creating more winning combinations for players.

The game’s betting range is wide enough for all spinners to afford, with coin denominations starting at just $0.01. The minimum you can stake on a single spin is $0.20 while the maximum reaches $2,000 when all 20 paylines are active.

Special Symbols

Magical Stacks is filled with special symbols to increase your chances of generating profits. The game features an interesting wild, consisting of a pink-haired Japanese girl, which can replace all other symbols with the exception of the scatter and the mystery stacked symbol. The cute pink-haired girl is also the best payer in Magical Stacks. Players who match five pink-haired girls on a payline will get 500 times their line bet. The girl’s hair in the main game is pink but turns white during the round of free spins.

The scatter in the game is a cute little white cat which pays 50 times the line bet for five matches. Three or more scatters also activate the Super Magical Free Games feature. One of the unique traits of this Playtech slot is the mystery stacked symbol, represented by a red cube with a question mark in the middle. It appears randomly and can turn into any other symbol with the exception of the special ones. There is also a coin symbol whose function is to increase the multiplier you get during the rounds of free spins.

Bonus Games and Features

Spinners will benefit from the Super Magical Free Games feature that gets triggered by three or more white cat scatters. Players initially receive 10 free spins, with multipliers that start at 2x. Each time the coin symbol appears on the fifth reel during free spins, the multiplier increases by 1x until it finally reaches 6x.

Bear in mind that every time the coin symbol fails to make an appearance on the fifth reel during the bonus feature, your multiplier will drop by 1x until it eventually diminishes to the initial 2x. The great thing about the Super Magical Free Games feature is that there is no limit to the free spins one can re-trigger. These bonus spins can be re-triggered an indefinite number of times by three or more scatter cats.

The Mystery Stacks feature adds an interesting twist to this Playtech offering. The red cube with the question mark is an interesting symbol in that it covers an entire reel, significantly increasing your chances of a win. When appearing, this mystery symbol can turn into any other regular symbol in the game. Normally, the entire stack will change into one and the same regular symbol. The only two icons it cannot transform into are the cat wilds and the coin symbols which increase the multipliers. Players may notice that the mystery symbols tend to appear more frequently during the Super Magical Free Games feature.


Magical Stacks will greatly appeal to all manga fans who like to occasionally set the reels in motion. This is a rather dynamic game that offers plenty of action and stands out with an original design, bold colors, and great gameplay. The audio effects the developers have chosen are quite catchy and loud, which emphasizes the frantic pace of this dynamic slot.

The Playtech developers have included a sufficient number of extra features to keep players interested in the game. The Super Magical Free Games feature is certainly very rewarding not to mention the bonus spins can be re-triggered indefinitely and this certainly works to the advantage of this vibrant, action-packed slot. We do wish the theoretical percentage of the game was a bit higher than 95.03%, but overall, Magical Stacks is a low-to-medium volatility game that will hardly burn a hole in players’ pockets, regardless of whether their bankrolls are big or small.
