3oaks Gaming has managed to carve out a niche for itself, thanks to its innovative pokies with rewarding mechanics like Hold and Win. The company recently announced Magic Aapple: Hold and Win, a continuation of the 2021 release with a fairytale-inspired design. In this game, players seek to unlock the bonus game with a trio of modifiers and four in-game jackpots. But first, they must search a mystical forest for magic apples.
The magical action happens on 5 reels and 4 rows with 25 bet lines. Although the original version had 30 bet ways, the developer increased the top payout from 2,000x to 5,000x the stake in the latest instalment. The playing card royals, from Jack to Ace, serve as low-value symbols, rewarding players with between 0.25x and 2.5x for matching at least three of them on a bet line.
Magic Apple: Hold and Win’s medium value symbols, which include dwarf, archer, queen, and prince. They can reward gamers with anything between 0.25x and 10x. The Snow White character is the game’s premium symbol, rewarding players with 1x to 12.5x the stake.
The wild text icon can also land on the reels and replace all symbols except bonus apples and palace scatters. Finding 3, 4, or 5 wilds anywhere in a winning combination will yield a payout of 1x, 2.5x, or 12.5x the player’s wager, respectively.
Meanwhile, you will notice an additional row above the reels during the Hold and Win feature, triggered by landing the bonus apples. When you land a plus symbol on the row, it will add its value to all icons directly below it, while the Gold Booster improves the bonus symbol, increasing the likelihood of success.
At this happens, players can find at least three palace scatters to trigger 10 free spins. Players are teleported to an empty reel set where only the apple trigger symbols display. Finding a new apple resets the number of spins to 3, allowing players to add more apples to the board.
That’s not all. After the bonus feature, the player will receive the total of all monetary values displayed on the apple symbols. When you collect a specific number of apples, the jackpot will trigger. Two gold apples will grant players the mini jackpot reward of x20, with 3, 4, or 5 gold apples starting the minor (x50), major (x100), or grand (x5,000) jackpot, respectively.
Commenting on their newest release for online casinos, Sebastian Damian, Managing Director of 3 Oaks Gaming, remarked: “More Magic Apple fits seamlessly into our powerful Hold and Win portfolio of titles. As ever with a Hold and Win slot, we have made significant, yet subtle, changes by adding a booster row to this title, giving players an awesome opportunity to boost winnings thanks to three different modifiers.”
