This Magic Mirror Deluxe 2 slot online is a cheap copy. But even cheap copies have their charm.
This Merkur Gaming slot is a obvious rip-off of the more famous Book of Ra Deluxe game by Novomatic.
They are not even being that subtle about it.
Though technically no one owns the right to ‘deluxe’, any gambler worth their salt knows that when they see the deluxe brand, it means Novomatic.
But you know what? That’s not even the reason why this Magic Mirror Deluxe II slot game doesn’t get as many stars as Book of Ra.
After all, we gave 4 stars to the Book of Dead game by Play’n GO, and that was also a fairly obvious ‘homage’ to the more famous Egyptian game.
No, the reason why this Magic Mirror slot didn’t tick all our boxes is because it looks awful.
If you are going to do a fantasy slot machine theme pay your artists. The Dragon slot look like something out of a genuine D&D game.
Magic Mirror Deluxe 2 looks like the artist barely knew how to draw human anatomy.
It’s not awful, but it’s pretty uninspiring.
Where Merkur lacks in imagination, they more than make up with mathematics, having created a brilliantly simple Book of Ra slot copy.
For one, the wild acts like a scatter, and it feels like you can trigger the 10 free spins easier.
For two, you still get those expanding scatter symbols, giving you potentially a whole screen full of 5 of a kind wins.
We’ve even re-triggered the feature, and collected 2 expanding symbols, giving us a total of over 150 times our bet win.
The Magic Mirror Deluxe II slot machine might not be very pretty, but she’s got a great personality if you have the patience to get to know her.

Wild Symbol: The Magic Mirror with a lion on it is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols in the game.
It also acts, and pays, like a scatter.
Wild Scatters and Free Spins: As mentioned, the magic mirror is also the scatter and if you get 3 or more on screen, you'll trigger 10 free spins.
One random symbol will then be chosen which will act like a scatter when it shows up on screen, and expands across the reels.
Meaning you'll get wins when any 2 or 3 symbols appear on screen.
If you re-trigger the free spins, another symbol will be chosen to act in much the same way.
Gamble Feature: You have two gamble features, which do much the same thing.
In one you guess the colour of a card (black or white) in the other you press a button to see if your prize is doubled or not.
The nice thing is that you can bank some of your 'gambled' winnings after each turn, so if you manage to have a good streak of luck, you can keep a little to the side just in case.
The gamble feature shows up after any win on this Magic Mirror Deluxe II slot machine, where you can literally 'gamble' that win with a 50/50 bet.
If you are a fan of landbase brick and mortar casinos, you'll probably more easily forgive the fairly unimaginative theme.
Mostly because you'll know that if you look past the ugly, you can catch some blazing good wins during the Magic Mirror Deluxe 2 free spin bonus games.
This is basically perfect for those who can't play Novomatic slots in their own countries, like in Canadian casinos or Australian gambling sites.
But, if we are honest, if you can, why play the copy when the original has it all and more? Or, even better, try the Book of Ra 6 Deluxe slot, which has 6 rather than 5 reels.
Because, sometimes, bigger really is better.
