Magic Lab Free Demo Play

Magic Lab is a magical slot machine from NetEnt. In what looks like a cathedral, you make magic potions that get an extra boost by heating them up. That setup is reminiscent of that other Scatter Pays slot Merlin’s Alchemy by Hacksaw Gaming. As such, it is not a sequel to Druid’s Magic.

Magic Lab - Slot Review

The magic potions come in 5 colors and corresponding increasing value. Unfortunately, the card symbols again take you out of the experience. The most magical aspect are the Scatters with their seemingly impossible shape.

Magic Lab has a theoretical payout percentage of 96.06%. The variance is high, while the volatility feels more medium. Now the question is whether this slot is better than reigning Scatter Pays like Sweet Bonanza or Jiggly Cash. You can read how Magic Lab comes out of the test in this slot review.

How to Play Magic Lab?

Magic Lab has a playing field with 6 reels that are each 5 rows high. Per spin, you choose to bet between $0.10 and $40. You determine this bet at the bottom of the playfield with the plus and minus buttons or by clicking on the value.

Between these 30 symbols you try to find the same symbol at least 8 times thanks to the Scatter Pays mechanism. A winning combination not only gives you a payout, but also triggers an Avalanche. The used symbols go up in smoke and the playfield is replenished from the top.

In total, there are 12 different symbols you will encounter in Magic Lab. You have card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A that give you 0.1 times the bet at 8 symbols. If you have 15 or more, they are worth 1 to 2.5 times the bet.

Next are the 5 colorful potions. The smaller three give you 0.5 times the bet at 8 symbols and up to 7 times the bet at 15 or more. For the big green and yellow potions, you get 1.2 or 1.4 times the bet up to 15 or 35 times your bet. And then there are a Wild and Scatter which we explain below.

Bonus features of Magic Lab

When it comes to the bonus features, Magic Lab is a pretty straightforward slot machine. You have the Wild symbols and you can trigger a Free Spins bonus. Exactly how these features work to potentially win up to 5,999 times your bet, we explain to you here.

Multiplier Wilds

Magic Lab’s candle-shaped Wilds replace all symbols except the Scatters. Plus after each Avalanche they get a +1 Multiplier. This applies to all wins you get after that. Say you have a x6 Multiplier with 8 times the K symbol, then you win 0.6 times your bet with this combination.

Free Spins Bonus

In addition to the golden yellow potion, you are especially hoping for Scatters in your play area. From 3 of them, you win the Free Spins bonus game. This gives you 5 Free Spins where each spin something special can happen.

  • On your first spin you get a guaranteed Sticky Multiplier Wild.
  • A random symbol disappears from your play area.
  • A second symbol disappears from your play area.

Did you have at least 4 Scatters, a third symbol now disappears from your play area.
If you had 5 Scatters, then your Multiplier Wild is doubled during the last spin.

PROs & CONs of Magic Lab


  • Beautiful graphics


  • Bonus game can remove good symbols
  • Not exciting
  • Uses card symbols

Buy Feature

Because sometimes it’s agonizingly long to wait for 3 Scatters, you can also buy the bonus game for 70 times your stake. During your next spin you are then guaranteed to get 3 or more Scatters in your play area.

What Do We Think of the Magic Lab Slot Machine?

To be honest, we expected more from NetEnt. Magic Lab looks beautiful, but actually there is not much to it. The basic game is quite simple and not very exciting. Due to the low value of all the symbols, even the Multiplier Wilds leave us cold.

But what bothers us most is that the provider did not have a better solution for the card symbols. Is it too much to ask to use ingredients for this, for example? The setting is already good, the music only moderate and then you have 10 to A in your playing field.

And we didn’t even mention the bonus where premium symbols can also be taken out of your playfield.


NetEnt’s Magic Lab slot machine has a payout percentage of 96.06%. Be careful, as you may also come across official versions with RTP of 94.15% or 88.12%.

If you have at least 3 Scatters, you win 5 Free Spins in Magic Lab. During the first spin, you get a Sticky Multiplier Wild. The second and third spin remove a random symbol. With 4 Scatters you also remove a third symbol on your fourth spin. And if you had 5 Scatters then you may double your Multiplier Wild during the last spin.

Magic Lab has a maximum win of 5,999 times your bet. You can achieve this thanks to the Avalanches that increase your Multiplier Wild. Or during the Free Spins.

In Magic Lab, you don’t have to look out for paylines. The slot machine works with the Scatter Pays mechanism. Therefore, you try to collect at least 8 times the same symbol in your play area.
