Rainforest Magic review
The fresh and intriguing design of Rainforest Magic may hide the fact that it’s not the most original slot from Play’n Go we’ve seen… but with a stellar mix of features and mechanics, it’s certainly a winner in our books. This five-reel, 25-payline slot launches in October to bring you high variance gameplay and plenty of fun features.
With a Mayan jungle-style design and a myriad of colourful animal characters making up the symbols, Rainforest Magic is a stunning slot with plenty to offer – and we’ll go through all aspects here in our review.

Rainforest Magic bonus features
There may be few features in this Play’n Go slot, but each of them are highly effective in creating big thrills during gameplay. The features are also quite a sign of the times, since the mystery symbol is one we’ve noticed in quite a few recent slot releases, and seems to be a popular choice for providers.
We’ll go through all the details of the features now to give you an idea of what to expect.
The free spins round in Rainforest Magic is probably our favourite feature of the game since not only does it change the speed of the gameplay, it is where you could find that max win of 5,000x.
This round is activated when three or more wild symbols appear on the reels. You’ll be awarded six spins minimum, with an extra two spins for every additional wild.
Before you start spinning, however, you’ll be presented with four flowers, each hiding a number of mystery reels. Click one to reveal how many mystery reels you’ll receive, and then these will shift position on every spin and reveal random matching symbols.
If you see all the reels fill up with wild symbols, you’ll be awarded a win of 1,000x your stake – and this can occur up to five times, giving you the chance to win up to 5,000x your bet.
As we discussed earlier, the mystery symbol is becoming a popular feature for modern-day slot games – and at JohnSlots, it’s one we’re quite fond of. In Rainforest Magic, the mystery symbol can appear anywhere on the reels – and when it does, it will turn all instances of itself into randomly matched symbols. This can be a great way to see a non-winning spin transform into a huge prize.
The wild leopard symbol will substitute for other symbols to help complete your payline – and, as mentioned in the free spins section, three or more can also trigger the free spins round.
Rainforest Magic jackpot
You won’t find a jackpot in this Mayan jungle, but you could find prizes of up to 5,000x your stake if you luck out in the free spins round.
RTP and volatility
With a return to player of 96.54%, Rainforest Magic sits slightly higher than the average slot. This is a high volatility slot of Play’n Go, meaning that while you might not see wins come in that frequently, they’ll tend to be on the bigger side.
Rainforest Magic on mobile
You can indeed play Rainforest Magic on mobile, and using top-notch technology, Play’n Go has offered yet another brilliant mobile experience.
