Abracardabra is a poker-style slot from betdigital/NextGen Gaming which can be played from 1p to £25 per draw – on all devices of course. This simple game sees you hold 1 or more cards to form winning poker hands – it comes with an Abracardabra Bonus feature where you can win time and time again. It also offers multipliers. There’s also a Magic Hat feature where you randomly get a winning hand.
Abracardabra has a magic theme as it’s set against a magician’s curtain with moving stage lights. With a cheesy soundtrack playing, you will see classic slot machine symbols on the poker cards – there are cherries, lemons, oranges, watermelons, plums, grapes, bars and blue 7s. The latter is by far the most lucrative giving you 10,000 times your stake if you manage to get 5!
Like the concept, the design is fairly straightforward as well, with a magic show theme where the 5 cards are set against a sparkling red backdrop and a jingly, if somewhat annoying, soundtrack plays along with it. Thankfully of course, the music can be silenced, and gamblers can get on with drawing 5 cards, selecting which ones to hold and having any new ones dealt out to determine a final hand. That’s all that is required in this game, but there’s a special Bonus card that multiplies wins and triggers a 17-card side game, while the Magician’s hat is, in effect, a wild symbol.
Anyway, once you begin playing, you will see 5 cards – you can choose to hold 1 or more cards. Then you press the draw button to remove unheld cards. You will form winning combinations when you get 3 or more of any symbol. Look out for the Magician’s Hat appearing at random as this trigger the Magic Hat feature – new cards appear from the hat to give you a guaranteed winning combination.
The Bonus card is a real highlight of Abracardabra, as it triggers a side game whenever 3 or more are drawn at once. In this round, 17 cards are lined up, with 5 cards in their normal places and 12 smaller ones below. Any cards that make up a win are removed from the table and more are dealt out for the process to repeat itself until no winning hands are seen or a �?Cards Remaining’ meter is empty.
While this can be a lucrative round, it’s actually possible for wins throughout to be multiplied in value, as any time the feature is triggered by 4 Bonus cards, wins are doubled, and should 5 Bonus cards have been seen, any payouts are multiplied by 10x.
But the magic isn’t over yet, as Abracardabra has another trick up its sleeve, with further multipliers for every extra Bonus card found in the feature. Those multipliers are applied to any winning card combinations in place once the Bonus cards have been removed from the table.
If you get a winning combination, the contributing cards are removed – the remaining cards then shuffle with new cards dealt until the �?Cards Remaining’ counter reaches zero. When you no longer get a win, the feature ends. Look out for 3 Bonus cards being dealt as this will increase the multiplier by 1 – every extra Bonus symbol also increases the multiplier by 1.

At the start of any round, players will see 5 cards lined up, with a variety of familiar symbols seen across them. These consist of the traditional fruit machine icons such as cherries, watermelons, BAR’s and 7’s and all that’s needed is a click on the Deal button to get these initial cards removed, while a new set replaces them in a nicely animated way.
Once the initial cards have been drawn, players have the option to Hold any number of them and get the remaining ones replaced by clicking the Draw button. As with Video Poker, this hand is the final one, and any wins are calculated based on what is now held. The cherries return 0.5x the stake when the final hand has 3 cards with them on, while 4 cherry cards are worth 1x and a full 5 cards pays out 2.5x. Values rise through the lemons, oranges, watermelons and plums, with the top fruit being a bunch of grapes that pays 5x, 30x and 75x the bet when 3, 4, or 5 are seen.
A single BAR symbol pays up to 100x, but by far the best result is from the blue number 7, as just 3 of these pays out 25x the triggering bet, 4 will be worth 100x and anyone who manages to land a full set of 5 cards with the number 7 on them will win a massive 10,000x their bet. The magic hat can appear at random and new cards will fly out, replacing any others, which can create a new winning set, although it isn’t certain to result in a winning hand.
Simple up and down arrows are used to adjust the stakes, from a low limit of just 0.01 per hand, to a maximum bet of 25.00. Clearly the higher the stakes, the higher the returns will be, and as this can be a fast-paced game, you could be claiming back some big wins pretty frequently.
