With stacks of symbols and dynamic multipliers, this Magical Stacks mobile slot is a fun, easy playing affair that can pack a punch.
Years of watching cartoons have taught us one thing: never underestimate the power of big-eyed manga girls with magical wands.
This is pure kawaii inspired, from the little Japanese phrases on wins, to the little cat creatures that trigger free spins, it’s cute, cheerful, and looks a little old fashioned.
Like you’re playing this in an arcade somewhere rather than as an iPhone or Android slot – it reminded us very much of Realistic Gaming Super Graphics Upside Down in fact.
No surprise there, considering the title, but just because a title says there will be stacks of symbols, doesn’t always mean it’s particularly effective (looking at you Neon Staxx slot).
The base game can go a fair while without getting the Magical Stacks slot symbols, which miraculously change into a multitude of options to create wins, but when they do, it gets you at least 5x to 20x your bet.
It’s not huge, but it keeps you going, especially when the betting range can be pretty unforgiving; it jumps from 0.20 to 1, to 2, to 5, to 10, to 20 per spin, with no options in between.
The theme keeps the base game lively, but it’s the free spins that makes this Magical Stacks slot machine worth playing.
Reasons being, not only do you get magical stacks more often, but you also get ‘dynamic multipliers’ meaning these can move up or down, from 2x to 5x, throughout the free spins.
We’ve won over 600 times our bet playing this little Playtech video slot, so like we said; don’t underestimate the potential here.
That said, there’s no doubt that Magical Stacks is a fairly easy playing machine; you don’t lose much, but it’s hard work winning much either.
For those days when you need brightening with a cheerful Japanese slot that isn’t risky, but still gives you a chance at big wins.

Wild Symbol: The cute pink hair girl is the wild symbol during the base game, and her hair turns white in the free spins.
She will replace all other symbols on the five reels except scatter and multiplier.
Stacked Mystery Symbol: The red box with a '?' on it is the mystery symbols and comes stacked across all reels. This symbol will then change into any other symbol on the reels, including wilds, for potential wins.
They cannot turn into a scatter or a multiplier symbol.
Super Magical Free Games: 3 or more little white cat scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger 10 free spins.
You'll start with a random multiplier of 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x, and every time you spin, the multiplier will go down unless you find a lucky coin symbol on reel 5.
The multiplier cannot exceed 5x, or drop below 2x, and sometimes the lucky coin is always there, keeping that multiplier between 4x and 5x at all times, and sometimes, you play 10 spins at 2x multiplier the whole way.
The important factor here is that the free spins are packed full of mystery symbols, many of which are happy to turn into wild symbols and provide a multitude of wins.
Playtech have created a bright, cheerful game that with stacked symbols and frequent wins, makes this Magical Stacks mobile slot a decent addition to their portfolio.
It's not as thrilling as the likes of NetEnt Koi Princess, but it's also a little friendlier. And the wins are there if you get lucky enough to get big multipliers and big stacks over 20 paylines.
