Review and recommendations by our testing team
- The functionality of Magellan slot provides 50 pay lines, with the issuance of wild symbols and 7 free spins. It has this slot and a “clone” among the EGT products called 50 Horses, with a difference in the number of free spins.
- Due to the low cost of combinations, the most of the winnings vary only from less than the nominal bet to just a few bets, with occasional larger combinations reaching 10x – 15x total bets, and very few winnings reaching 25x – 40x bets. Despite 50 lines, this machine makes a series of empty spins. The potential for giving out an expensive combination in the usual spins is minimal and, accordingly, you can expect its realization during free spins, but even there the slot is disappointing.
- Free spins are triggered when three scatter symbols fall on the reels, which are issued only on reels 2, 3 and 4 reels, that’s why the free spins feature is not often triggered and is happening statistically on every 60 – 80 spins, with periodic series of features with a longer distance between them. Plus, here you can expect the free spins feature from the beginning of your session.
- In free spins there are additional reels, with an increased number of related wild symbols, you can expect quite large wins, but due to unpopularity (Magellan occupies one of the lowest positions among EGT slot machines), the slot rare realizes its potential. So, the average win is 20x – 30x, with sometimes less than 10x bets and rarer winnings within 50x – 60x total bets. The maximum winning during testing was only 114x, and this is when there is a re-trigger, which you can get here often. The maximum win recorded by the developer was only 208x bets.
- Information about the risk game can be found here. Also, information about the JackPot game here.
Magellan slot is not recommended playing with bonus money, because due to the low cost of the most of the combinations, the slot almost does not keep the balance, and the often small winnings from the free spins are also helping for it. While playing with real money, I would recommend excluding the use of progressive betting strategies, and also, considering the low potential of the slot, only short sessions of no more than 50 spins (or until the first bonus feature).
