Pragmatic Play – Voodoo Magic – Free Slot Game

Voodoo Magic is both atmospheric and full of interesting features, but for some reason Pragmatic has decided to mess with the mathematical model in this game. Maybe it’s some kind of voodoo curse, we don’t know, but it’s definitely effective. The usual “over-the-top” Pragmatic game potential is long gone here, as they have completely swung to the other extreme.

The wide-eyed voodoo priestess, Mambo, on the right, pretty much embodies the expression we had on our face when we learned the facts about this game. You’ll find plenty of entertaining features here, but without the win guarantee, you’d barely win anything from the bonus round most of the time. Getting the math model “right” should be the easy part, so it’s sad to see an otherwise interesting title wasted due to “faulty stats”.

Voodoo Magic Slot Features

The wild is the highest value symbol in this game, and it pays 12.5 times your bet for 5 on a payline. It is also used for all regular pay symbols, as is usually the case with Wilds. Apart from that, you will benefit from 3 variations of the bonus round here, as well as 2 reel modifiers.

Whenever you land a scatter that didn’t trigger the bonus round, and more specifically 2 scatters on reels 2 and / or 3, you will trigger a random feature. You will choose from 2 potions to determine which reel modifier you will receive. These are as follows:

  • Mystery Curses – Gives you a random number of Wilds and a new win calculation.
  • Fortune Hex – Removes all low value symbols and scatters, and new high value symbols are blanked out to fill in the gaps. This also gives you a new win calculation.

If you land 3 bonus scatters on the 3 middle reels on the same spin, you trigger the free spins bonus round. You will then receive 3 playing cards and choose 1 to determine what type of bonus round you will receive. All 3 options come with 5 free spins, but there is a win guarantee that varies as follows:

  • Voodoo Free Spins – Win 10 times your bet guarantee.
  • Super Voodoo Free Spins – Win a guarantee of 25x your bet.
  • Mega Voodoo Free Spins – Win a guarantee of 50x your bet.

You will benefit from additional Mystery Symbols in each free spin. In the Voodoo and Super Voodoo feature, the Mystery Symbols become any matching symbol. However, in the Mega Voodoo feature at the highest level, the Mystery Symbols will only become one of the four top level Premium Symbols.

If you do not reach the minimum win limit for your given bonus round, you will receive 5 additional spins until then. Finally, players outside the UK can purchase the free spins via the bonus buy option, which will give you back 80 times your bet.

The 200 Spins Voodoo Magic Slot Experience

After playing the base game for a while, we gave in and decided to pay the bonus round. You can see us trigger it around 0:40 in the video, and before that we have some smaller regular wins. However, we won’t reveal how the bonus round plays out and how much we won in advance. Smash that play button and see for yourself!


It’s a real shame that such a neat looking game was ruined by pure “voodoo craziness” in the math model. The point of a win guarantee is that it hardly ever needs to be triggered. It is a fail-safe mechanism, not a “cool feature”. However, this is not the case when you play Voodoo Magic, as you are pretty much dependent on it to get you somewhere most of the time.

Due to the low symbol value, 5 free spins are only enough if you get really lucky with the mystery symbols. It’s almost ridiculous if you have to trigger the win guarantee multiple times to escape the rather anticlimactic feature. The limited 1000x potential is also a joke for a very volatile game like this, but hey, at least you’ll never go completely empty handed with a bonus round here.
