Probably the biggest surprise is the great variety of gaming options this slot has to offer, and some are the basic symbols plus wilds, scatter and several themed bonus features as well as free spins with some specific terms. Players can make winning combinations when they land three, four or five of the same symbols, but these must be situated on the cell of the neighbouring reels, from left to right with multiple combinations being available when the reels spin.
The pay outs in Presto are decided by the bet and coin value which is then multiplied by a determined formed combination that ranges from x5 up to x200. All credits won in the round are all added together at the end. There is no gambling feature so to speak and all the symbols relate to the overall theme and include cards in the illusionist’s hand, a magic chest, a rabbit, white pigeons, the beautiful assistance and the familiar playing cards Jack to Ace.
The wild is represented by the wild sign and this falls out of all the reels to form its own win combinations and can also replace all other symbols apart from the scatter. The scatter is represented by a crystal sphere and this will only be seen in the basic spins. It is paid out in accordance with the place it lands on the screen with the wins calculated by the total bet. Landing three or more scatters activates the free spin feature.
Presto the slot provides players with a variety of prize features that are referred to as illusions. Situated above the reels are between five and twenty feathers and one feather takes flight with every spin.
Once all the feathers have taken flight the illusionist performs a trick, and he decides which trick to show from the following:
The crystal ball illusion – this bonus has the advantage over all the others and if two scatters drop from the reels and any symbol on the fifth reel could morph into the crystal sphere and activate the free spins.
The throwing cards illusion – with this the player will see between two and six cards fly across the screen and turn into wilds.
The synced reels illusion – with this illusion the player will see between two and five reels lock and stacks of the same symbols will appear on these locked reels.
The expanding wild illusion – sees all the images of the female assistant loaded onto the reels and become expanding wilds.
The magic hat re-spin illusion – sees all the illusionist’s hat appear at the reels and can be duplicated onto the neighbouring reels with each symbol providing a re-spin and all of the hats changing into the same symbols.
Finally, there is the free games, where the player will be given twelve free spins and the bet amount remains the same, there are only three different illusions that can be triggered in the free spins, these being the expanding wilds, synched reels and throwing cards, this feature cannot be re-activated or extending any further.
