True Illusions Game Characteristics
True Illusions has a theatrical setting, where its partitioned purple-framed 5X3 grid is positioned between tasseled red-and-purple stage curtains. The 30 yellow stars along the grid’s margins represent the game’s adjustable left-to-right paylines. It has eleven coin sizes, five bet levels, 935 total bets, a bonus game, locked wild reel, free games, no side game, and regularly pays from $5.00 to $2500.00.
True Illusions has eleven symbols: three special eight ordinary symbols. Special symbols: the substitute is a starry teal “wild” polyester fabric; the free games-unlocking scatter is the blue-suited, bearded and Caucasian magician; and the bonus card game-unlocking scatter is a poker hand—A of spades, A of hearts, and A of clubs.
Ordinary symbols: blonde magician’s assistant in red; locked wooden-and-golden vanish chest box; golden guillotine; finger trick; caged white paper pigeon; crystal ball on a golden stand; upturned red-banded top hat; and white handkerchief trick.
True Illusions’ coin sizes: $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.04, $0.05, $0.10, $0.15, $0.20, $0.25, $0.50, and $1.00. Optional paylines: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 28, 29, or 30. Minimum bet: $0.01. Maximum bet: $150.00.
Betting $150.00 attracts these True Illusions payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations. Magician’s assistant pays $500.00, $1000.00, and $2500.00. Vanish box pays $375.00, $750.00, and $1500.00. Guillotine pays $125.00, $500.00, and $1000.00.
Finger trick pays $125.00, $250.00, and $625.00. Pigeon pays $100.00, $200.00, and $500.00. Crystal ball pays $75.00, $150.00, and $375.00. Top hat pays $50.00, $100.00, and $250.00. Handkerchief trick pays $25.00, $50.00, and $125.00.
The “wild” fabric is exclusive to the inner reels. Better yet, three conjoined reel-long “wild” fabrics in reel three are chained and locked for a maximum of seven rounds. Then the entire grid is draped before the ensuing pink caustic smoke amid the stage is replaced by an upright starry teal coffin whose lid opens to reveal a velvety red interior, where the assistant enters in the run-up to her successful coffin escape.
When 3+ scattered magicians load the free games, the magician moves is magically relocated from the grid’s left to the right. Three poker hands prompt a card game, where players choose one of the six credit-offering face down cards held by the magician who then showcases the exact card that the player had picked. True Illusions’ non-progressive jackpot: $112050.00.
The good True Illusions software: icons on playing cards, hat, and handkerchief; mobile and desktop versions; quick spin; and 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, and 100 autospins. Ambient background: classical music. Sound effects: fizzing, whooshing, jingling, chinking, cheering, clanging, and monologue.
The illusionism-inspired cinematic graphics include: assistant’s coffin escape, card flourishing, hand gestures, gushing legal tender, self-(un)chaining coffin, card prediction, impaling, money blowing, hat tricks, crystal gazing, and teleportation via caustic smoke.
