Entering the Slot Wars ring are two popular Pragmatic Play games – Mysterious Egypt and Voodoo Magic. Both released in January 2021, the games have been doing very well in the online casinos, ranking among the most sought-after slots. However, when faced with each other directly, which one will take the title of the winner.
Let the Slot War begins!
Round 1: Winning Potential And RTP
Things that are of great interest to most casino streamers and regular players are the max possible payout and the RTP value. When it comes to these 2 games, the RTP is set on 96.5% so there is no winner in that regard. However, the winning potential values differ significantly!
Those spinning the reels on Mysterious Egypt can get as much as 5,533x the stake while the winnings on Voodoo Magic are limited to 1,000x the stake. So, if you’re hoping for some more lucrative wins, the first slot is definitely packing more power.
Round 2: Bonus Features
Players who decide to travel to the mighty Nile river have a Mystery Symbol on every spin during the base game. It’s chosen on random and if enough of them land in a single spin, they expand to cover the whole reel. And what’s even more important, they don’t need to be adjacent to each other to payout. This means players’ balance will get significant balance boosts relatively regularly.
The slot also features Free Spins that start with a special twist – not 1 but 2 special symbols are chosen at random. They behave in the same way as a Mystery symbol in the base game, providing players with some hefty rewards.
And those who are more interested in Voodoo Magic, are treated to the Random Spin feature activated when 2 Bonus symbols land on reels 2 and 3. When this happens, they get to choose between 2 potions – one is bringing Mystery Curses aka more Wilds to the grid while the other activates Fortune Hax which removes all the Bonus and low-paying symbols and replaces them with high-paying ones.
And before the bonus round starts, the players have 3 tarot cards to choose from. Each one of these 3 hides one variation:
- Mega Voodoo Free Spins – the minimum win of 50x the bet is guaranteed
- Super Voodoo Free Spins – the minimum win of 25x the bet is guaranteed
- Voodoo Free Spins – the minimum win of 10x the bet is guaranteed
Round 3: Visual and Audio Effects
Ancient Egypt is probably the most common slot theme in the online betting market. However, the players apparently find it far from boring and the old African culture is like the inexhaustible source of inspiration for developers in the online gambling industry. Aside from a popular theme, Pragmatic also ensured graphics are sharp, colors vibrant, and animations smooth so players can enjoy immersive gameplay.
The Voodoo Magic is a bit on the darker side when it comes to color palette, adding that creepy and mystifying vibe to the gameplay. The background is done by the highest industry standards and provides players with a fun and engrossing gaming experience.
And The Winner Is…
Although both releases bring dynamic, feature-rich gameplay, the winning title goes to Mysterious Egypt. The expanding mystery symbol in the base game, large winning potential, and 2 mystery symbols during Free Spins are just some of the reasons why this slot is exiting the fight victoriously.
Voodoo Magic is far from bad but it lacks power in a couple of crucial segments, the max possible payout being one of them. And even though the magical theme is fun and appealing, it can not compete with the always-alluring and enigmatic world of Ancient Egypt.
