The Illusions 2 slot is a perfect low betting game for when you are in the mood for something with a little razzle dazzle when playing mobile phone slots.
At first glance, Illusions 2 mobile slot by iSoftBet feels very similar to the 5 star rated Ninja Chef slot game. It has the choose one of three free spins feature. It has the expanded wild and the big multipliers.
Yet, this little odd duck didn’t hit all our buttons like it’s far superior cousin. We will mention the two reasons straight away, so if you don’t think these bother you, you can simply play what is a great middle variance slot. If, however, you agree with us on Illusions 2 slot game downside, then check out Ninja Chef slot as an alternative.
The theme didn’t thrill us that much. Magic themed slots are a dime a dozen, from the classic 5x Magic slot to the beautiful Magic Portals. And though we will admit that Illusions 2 video slot looks great, it’s a little bit… flat?
Your high card symbols are large and easily seen on screen, but other than the slightly sarcastic rabbit, from the magician to the lovely assistant to the bouquet of flowers felt as dated as your standard birthday party magician.
Then you have the fact that this is, without a doubt, far more suited as an Android phone slot. The sounds bring the whole thing together and the smaller screen makes you notice how these flat symbols actually makes it easier to see a winning line. However, as an iPad slot (and sometimes certain iPhones) the sound is lost and all you get is the generic turning of the wheels. Only an issue if you are going to play with the sound on.
And last, but not least, the betting limit. You can play anything from 1 to 10 coins a line, which you’d think would give you a huge betting range. But your coin size is limited to 0.01 and 0.02, making the minimum and maximum bet really very small.
That said, the mechanics of this mobile slot game are really superb and lots of fun to play. You’ll have to be a little careful with your budget on this one as it does have a tendency to eat your coins in between the wins.
This is because Illusions 2 slot game has a few tricks up its sleeve that still manages to impress. Namely wilds in the base game that offer anything from 1x to 5x multipliers which are added together, and a tricky free spin round.
We say tricky as you have a choice of three options, opting for either more free spins but a smaller multiplier or low number of spins but a higher multiplier (up to 6x). Either way you’ll get sticky wilds that cover the whole reel and remain for the whole time the free spins are playing. Get two or three of these on your screen and you’ll be more than glad you’ve chosen this iSoftBet slot as your means to pass an afternoon.
All in all, if you can live with the few cosmetic flaws we mentioned above, this is a great, really fun game.

Multiplier Wilds: The magical hands with a magical wand is the wild symbol and comes in four forms. These are multipliers, from 1x to 2x, 3x, and 5x. They are cumulative: meaning they add each other up to create big wins. Up to 10x your line bet if you get them to all lines up in a row.
They replace all symbols except scatter and the 'trick' symbol during the free spins.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3 scatter magician symbol anywhere on the five reels and you'll activate the cleverly titled Illusion bonus.
Here you'll pick from one of three options: Either 15 free spins with a 2x multiplier (the magical equivalent of a bunny out of the hat - safe and boring), 8 free spins with a 3x multiplier (putting swords through a box - a little more thrilling, but you know no blood will be shed), and 5 free spins with a 6x multiplier (for when we throw caution to the wind and throw ourselves into the water tank in chains!).
During any of the free spins you get an additional symbol called the 'trick' symbol. Whenever this symbol shows up, it expands to cover the whole reel as a wild and will remain there for however many free spins you have left.
Needless to say, this is the most exciting part of the game. Add a wild multiplier to this concotion and the wins here can be impressive - or not. We've walked away with 10x and 15x our bet a few times to know that it's not always guaranteed.
Thank-fully the free spins come often, which makes up for the fact that you don't always win big. You know, you hope, in your heart that the next time will see you amazed at your screen as the magician turns spins into gold.
Ultimately we don't think you can hope to win more than about 200 to 300 times your bet on a really, really, really good round - though it could easily go higher.
However, if you set your goal at a more realistic level and enjoy playing with a smaller budget but want a chance at getting some decent winnings, Illusions 2 mobile slot has plenty to offer the savvy mobile gambler.
