Watch the greatest magician of online slots work his magic in Fantasini: Master of Mystery. This online slot was released in February of 2016 and offers an RTP of 96,6% with the chance to win up to £135,000 on a single spin. The slot design is simple yet effective with a Linked Reels Bonus Feature and 1 special Wild symbol.
Prepare to be Amazed
This 3-row, 5-reel online video slot offers 243 ways to win along adjacent reels. Beams from stage lights shine against a dark, flat background. The symbols are framed in gold. An animated gold linked chain surrounds 2-5 reels each spin with the activation of the Linked Reels Bonus Feature. Winning symbols expand and contract. The music is both mysterious and urgent working to build suspense during gameplay. Overall the visual quality and animations fall short of graphically stunning 3D slots such as Betsoft’s The Tipsy Tourist.
Fantasini: Master of Mystery lists Bets, Total Balance and Wins in coin values at the bottom of the slot screen. They are also listed in cash in a narrow black box located below the more prominent coin values. To select a Coin Bet ranging from 25-250 coins, choose a Bet Level (1-10). To select a Cash Bet ranging from 25p-£125, choose both a Bet Level and a Coin Value (0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.50) at Vera&John. For example, a Coin Value selection of 0.01 with Bet Level 1 results in a Bet selection of 25 coins / 25p. Paytable values are listed in coin values and remain fixed despite changes in Bet selection.
Fantasini: Master of Mystery has 12 symbols most of which reflect the old fashioned magic show theme. This online slot only features 1 special symbol – a Magician Wild. The Wild replaces any other symbol and only shows on reels 2-5. Fantasini: Master of Mystery’s 11 regular symbols include 5 higher paying symbols and 6 lower paying symbols. The higher value symbols, listed from highest to lowest pays, include a Magician’s Assistant, Magic Chest, Crystal Ball, Gold Chains and Throwing Knife. The lower value symbols include Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10 and 9. The highest value Fantasini: Master of Mystery symbol is the Magician’s Assistant which pays (1.000, 250, 50) for Bet Level 1.
This online slot pays left to right with 243 ways to win across adjacent reels. Essentially, 3+ matching symbols can be anywhere across 3+ reels to form a winning combo. Additionally, different matching symbol combos can be added together for an even larger total win. For a single matching combo profit, get 3+ Magician’s Assistant or Magic Chest symbols, get 4+ of any higher paying symbol, or 5+ of any Fantasini: Master of Mystery symbol. This online slot boasts the potential to award up to 270,000 coins on a single spin!
Autoplay allows players to select from 8 options ranging from 10-1,000 spins. Advanced settings allow the reels to auto-stop: on any win, when a win exceeds a set amount or when the cash balance increases or decreases by a set amount.
Click Spin again once the reels are in play to stop them quickly for faster gameplay.
Fantasini: Master of Mystery Game Options allow players to set the spacebar to spin, switch music & sound effects on/off and set the graphics quality to high, medium, or low.
Fantasini: Master of Mystery Bonus Features
This online slot only has 1 Bonus Feature, making it one of the most simply designed slots created by Net Entertainment. In fact, it is very similar in design to NetEnt’s very popular Twin Spin online video slot released in 2014. Like Twin Spin, Fantasini: Master of Mystery has 1 Feature which activates every spin and matches adjacent reel symbols.
Linked Reels Feature: Though the Linked Reels Feature is Fantasini: Master of Mystery’s only Bonus Feature, it activates on EVERY single spin and works to increase both the frequency and quantity of wins. At least 2 reels can be linked together each spin and at most 5. When surrounded by gold chain links, all symbols match across the reels. In other words, the reels will appear identical to each other. The appearance of the gold links is completely random and alternates along the 5 reels during gameplay.

While it is true that Fantasini: Master of Mystery’s Linked Reels Feature is effective, it is rather disappointing that it copies Twin Spin’s Twin Reel Feature exactly. Essentially both these slots share the same game design with the same type of Feature, Wild, a potential coin prize of 270,000 and 243 ways to win. There really is no difference between the two other than theme. That said, fans of Twin Spin will really enjoy Fantasini: Master of Mystery, and perhaps, that is what NetEnt intended.
While testing the demo for Fantasini: Master of Mystery, we won around 2.5 every 10 spins or so. A third of our total wins were Linked Reel Wins of 3+ reels. Our biggest win was a 4 Linked Reel, 500 coin win which amounted to around 20x the Bet.
