The Great Albini Slot Machine
Try Microgaming Slots
Microgaming has a new slot release, developed by Foxium, the game studio that develops content exclusively for the leading software developer. The inspiration was found in magic, dedicated to the Polish-born, legendary magician called Herbert Albini. The slot is called The Great Albini, showing respect to the great magician directly. It is a very interesting game, one that would appeal to many, mainly due to the maximum payout potential.
The first feature that you will come across in The Great Albini is the standard Wild. It will appear on all reels, except for the first one, and will replace for all regular symbols when it appears next to them. The Wild will, however, not trigger other features.
There is a feature called a Mystery Box Respin. It gets activated when you land a Stacked Mystery Box symbol on the 3rd reel. All the Mystery Symbols get locked and you receive 3 Respins. In case you land additional Mystery Symbols during the Respins, they will reset to 3 once again. Afterwards, the Mystery Boxes will unlock and you will hopefully get many winning combos and grab some huge payouts.
But, you will also find the regular Free Spins feature here, which you will have to trigger with 3 Scatter symbols appearing on the three middle reels. During the Free Spins, you may get the chance to trigger the Lily feature. The Lily Wilds will help you with this, provided you land Lily Wilds on the middle reels. You will get 2x the stake wins, plus some Respins.
And finally, you also have the Bonus Box feature, which you can purchase in order to get quicker access to 8, 10 or 12 Free Spins, which are worth from 100x to 150x the stake.
Theme & Design
The Great Albini is, as mentioned, a slot inspired by a magician that used to perform during the Golden Era of magic. He was a stage magician, so you will see that the reels are set on the stage. You will see the Great Albini, his assistant Lily, knives, a canary, lucky cups and for the lowest-paying symbols, the playing card Royals.
The magic show was really though out amazingly. You will see many elements of a real magic show such as locked subjects that get unlocked by magic. Foxium and Microgaming did a great job with its design and gameplay.
Wagering & Paylines
The wagering in The Great Albini will start from $0.01 and will go up to $2.00 per line. Considering that there are 25 paylines, the minimum bet is $0.25 while the maximum is $50.00.
The slot features a little above average RTP of 96.60% and has a maximum payout potential of 4,000x the stake. For the max bet, that would mean that the highest payout you could get from this slot is $200,000.00. This is definitely a payout that both low and high players would appreciate.
We can honestly say that we are impressed by this slot. We loved the gameplay and we are amazed by the Albini-inspired theme. The guy was a legend. But what’s most impressive here is that the gameplay matches the theme and there’s a lot of magic stuff going on on the reels. The RTP and payouts are great, too, so we can say with no doubt that Foxium and Microgaming really nailed it with this slot.
