The Magic Number Introduction 

Is there such a thing as a "magic number"? We can't tell, but we do know of a slot with that name - Slot Factory' The Magic Number, of course! Here we get a game set on 5 reels and 3 rows "infused with powerful magic," not to mention symbols that include sevens, bells and gems in different colours. Symbols of the same colour can be used to form any of the 9 paylines on offer, while landing 3 or more heart bonus symbols triggers the Magic Mini Reels feature. This replaces the game with a set of 3 mini slots, of which you choose one. What's the difference between these slots? The volatility, of course. Do you want more, smaller wins or potentially fewer wins with a bigger value? That's up to you, but in the meantime you can learn about what else The Magic Number has to offer by reading this review!

In mathematics, the "magic number" is 1729. Also known as Ramanujan's number, after an anecdote by mathematician G. H. Hardy recounted when he was visiting fellow scholar Srinivasa Ramanujan in the hospital. Hardy took his trip on a taxi numbered 1729, and remarked to Ramanujan the number was "a dull one." Ramanujan replied that no, that number was actually very interesting. How so? Turns out it's actually the smallest number that is the sum of 2 cubes in 2 different ways.

The Magic Number Game Features 

The Magic Number is a 5-reel, 3-row slot with a total of 9 paylines formed by landing 3 or more symbols of a matching colour on adjacent reels. Paylines always start from reel 1, moving from left to right. Symbols can be grouped in 3 colours, orange, green and purple. The orange symbols are a seven and a round gem, while the green symbols are an emerald and an oblong gem. On the purple side you will find a bell and a triangular gem. Joining these are 3 high pays, a star, a moon and a Magic Number logo. The wild can substitute for all symbols except the free spins scatter and bonus symbol. The free spins scatter activates the free spins if you land 3 or more anywhere on the reels, while landing 3 or more bonus symbols triggers the Magic Mini Reels round. 

The Magic Number Free Spins and Bonuses 

Landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters awards you with 5, 10 or 15 free spins respectively. The free spins take place using the same bet as the triggering spin and can be retriggered by, once again, landing 3 or more scatters. 

The bonus symbols, on the other hand, activate the Magic Mini Reels feature if you land 3 or more. This replaces the regular reels with 3 sets of reels, each featuring 3 reels and 3 rows. You get to select one of these, with the first offering the lowest chances for the best wins with 1 payline, the second mid chances for mid wins with 3 paylines and the third the best chances for the lowest wins with 5 paylines. These mini reels hold the same symbols, which are hearts in gold, silver and bronze and the K, Q and J card royals, as well as a wild. The reel sets' respective paylines are formed by landing 3 matching symbols, one on each reel. 

The Magic Number Payouts

During regular spins the Magic Number logo is the highest paying symbol, with a full payline being worth up to 250x the bet. The star and moon follow, being both worth up to 150x the bet. The seven, emerald and bell can bring up to 100x the bet and the orange, green and purple gem 50x. A mixed payline of symbols of the same colour can pay out 25x the bet. In addition, 5 wilds in a payline can bring 500x the stake. Moving on to the Magic Mini Reels round, the hearts and wilds are worth 25x the bet, the K 5x, the Q 3x and the J 1x. 

The Magic Number Graphics and Sound 

The Magic Number features a clean and simple design, with white reels set on top of a purple and blue background. On top of the reels are, of course, the symbols making the slot itself. These are big and colourful, with the gems featuring particularly shiny art making for one truly gleaming slot. On top of the reels is the game logo, while on the right-hand side is the semi-transparent spin button overlaid on top of the slot. This is one of Slot Factory's signature designs, and one that works surprisingly well. 

The Magic Number Conclusion 

A solid slot with not one, but two, bonus features, The Magic Number brings solid win potential together with its fun visual design. The Magic Mini Reels round brings an interesting dilemma, and should appeal to players of all kinds. So make sure to check out The Magic Number here at Videoslots Casino today!
