True Illusions Slot
True Illusions came around as one of Betsoft's assaults on the world of online slots. It's a 5-reel, max 30-pay line '3D' slot with a distinctly magical theme. All the action takes place on stage as a cunning prestidigitator holds his audience spell bound with an impressive array of magical illusions. The only trick you hope he is going to play is to magic a load of coins into your casino cashier account. The symbols in the game all have a magical appeal – the conjuror's spellbindingly beautiful assistant, a rather bemused looking dove, plus top hats, playing cards, a crystal ball and a treasure chest.
You start each spin by choosing your bet-per-line from 0.02 to 0.50, and the number of lines you want in play, from one to thirty. You can also select your bet-per-line from one to five coins. The more you bet, the more you will win if you land three identical symbols in sequence from the left-hand reel on one of you active pay lines.
Payout & bonus rounds
You need three symbols in sequence to secure a prize, and the lowest winner is the 'what's under the hankie' trick that wins x25 your stake-per-line. The big winner is the appealing assistant at 2,500x.
The 'Wild' symbol substitutes for all other symbols. If you land three stacked Wild symbols on the central reel the reel will lock for a certain number of spins – up to a maximum of seven – greatly increasing your chances of more wins.
Free Spins Mode is triggered when you land three 'magician' symbols anywhere on the reels. During free spins mode the cascading reels feature comes into play – any winning symbols with vanish as if by magic and new symbols will tumble down to replace them, potentially triggering more wins.
If you land three 'Pick A Card' symbols anywhere on the reels you enter the 'Pick A Card' bonus feature. The magician will allow you to choose from one of three cards he will offer – choose well and a tasty prize will be yours.
Despite these neat bonus games, you can tell the True Illusions is one of the older games from Betsoft's portfolio, as newer games with richer features have happened along since to relegated True Illusions down the list of Betsoft's most popular offerings. It's still worth popping a few credits into, and it makes sense to play it now before – like the magician's assistant – it disappears!
