Slot tester's review Trystan Michielsen

Slot tested

The Great Albini is a slot that centres around a successful magician as he performs a series of tricks for the audience. To keep the players interested as well, the game also includes wilds, free spins and re-spins.

The game was released in 2019 by relative newcomer Foxium who are hard at work establishing a name for themselves. This slot included a collection of interesting features, a number of animations and a nice style to set itself apart. Players will spend most of their time on the main 5-reel, 3-reel playing field. If they manage to activate the free spins mode, they’ll instead play on a 5-reel, 6-row playing field.

When it comes to its presentation, the game really hammers home the idea that you’re watching a magician’s show. The Great Albini himself is present during the entire game, standing to the side and occasionally performing a magic trick that influences the gameplay. There is the usual divide between low- and high-paying symbols, with card letters for the low-paying ones and original symbols for the ones that are worth more.

The game comes with quite a number of animations. Although the graphics are 3D and I don’t think they are ageing well, they do show a lot of detail. I also liked that the magician and his assistant are animated whenever they are on the screen. It makes the slot feel more alive and it is almost like we’re actually watching a show.

Symbols

The Great Albini offers a number of original symbols and simple card letters to fill out the assortment. There are a total of 25 paylines active during the base game which is increased to 50 if the free spins mode is triggered. While the high-paying symbols are all unique and make sense in the show, the card letters aren’t as inspired even though they do come with original designs. It’s odd that they didn’t put the card letters on actual cards, since those would actually fit the idea of a magic show quite well.

With average payouts, a reasonable opportunity at getting wins and an average number of symbols, it’s no surprise the game is listed as Medium Volatility. Players will likely see a regular but spaced out number of wins as they play but keeping big wins to a minimum. To change the speed at which they go through their funds or to adjust the size of their wins, players can choose to augment their bets. There is the possibility to pick a bet between £0.25 and £30 per spin.

When it comes to winning, the game isn’t too gratuitous but it did happen occasionally in my experience. Players will also have a shot at the max. win of 4,000x your bet. This is quite high considering the volatility but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to reach.

The symbols that are included in the game are:

  • Wilds: Wilds substitute all regular symbols in the game.
  • Mystery Box: Triggers the re-spin feature when Mystery Boxes fill the middle reel.
  • Free Spins: The Free Spins feature is activated when free spin symbols appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. Players will receive 12 free spins.
  • Albini: Max. 80x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Lily: Max. 40x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Canary: Max. 24x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Knives: Max. 16x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Lucky Cups: Max. 8x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Ace: Max. 6.4x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • King: Max. 4.8x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Queen: Max. 4x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Jack: Max. 4x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • 10: Max. 4x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.

Features

The Great Albini has a number of features that I would call an average amount. There aren’t a lot of them but the game isn’t barren with features either. Players will be regularly surprised by any of the features appearing, although the free spins mode was by far the rarest.

When it comes to an overview, you can expect the following features to make an appearance:

  • Wilds: Wilds will substitute all regular symbols in the game, except the Mystery Box and Free Spins symbols.
  • Sticky Re-Spin: Whenever the Mystery Box appears to fill reel 3, the Sticky Re-Spins feature is enabled. Players receive 3 re-spins to add additional Mystery Boxes to the screen. If that happens, the re-spins counter is reset. Once 3 re-spins are spun without adding extra Boxes, the re-spins feature ends and all Mystery Boxes are turned into a random high-paying symbol.
  • Free Spins: With 3 Free Spins symbols on the screen the Free Spins feature is enabled. Players will receive 12 free spins to play with.
  • Expanding Reels: The Free Spins mode plays out on a 5-reel, 6-row playing field. This will also double the number of paylines.
  • Sticky Multipliers: During the Free Spins mode, Lily the assistant can appear as a Sticky Stacked Wild on the playing field, applying a 2x multiplier to every win its part of.

Players should be familiar with all these features individually, and the game does a good job explaining their functionality visually if they don’t. I don’t think it will take even new players long to figure out the way the features work and can begin to enjoy the gameplay.

In Conclusion

The Great Albini is a good effort by the studio at showing what they’re capable of. The 3D graphics are already starting to look somewhat outdated and the animations aren’t the smoothest but I appreciate the effort and can look at other studios that don’t put in the time.

When it comes to the gameplay, I found the slot to be rather engaging although it can be punishing. When I increased my bets I found that I went through my funds in only a few spins. I would strongly recommend players start with lower bets to get a feel for the gameplay before they consider increasing their bets.

All in all, the slot is a great game for players that enjoy the classic video slot experience with some nice features included to spice up the gameplay. It will reward you with smaller wins throughout your time playing, but bigger wins are rather far and few between.

3.3
