If you like cupcakes, pink (or at least girls dressed in pink) and anime, then Magic Maid Cafe could be one of the online slots of your dreams! Though to be fair, with a maximum payout of 37,500x your wager, it may just be the online slot machine of everyone’s dreams, regardless of personal taste.
Brought to you by gaming giant NetEnt, this real online slot was inspired by the popular concept of maid cafes in Japan, and combines it with an anime theme to bring a cute-as-candy experience to your screen.
Magic Maid Cafe is a 5x3-reel online slot with 20 paylines, and can be played on desktop, tablet, or mobile devices. This slot game has a number of features, from the Avalanche Multiplier, where continuous wins lead to a 5x multiplier, to the Free Falls feature, where multipliers can reach up to 15x.
With an RTP (return to player) of 95.97%, and a max payout of 2,300x the wager, Magic Maid Cafe’s game mechanics and statistics are a replica of the super-popular online casino slot, Gonzo’s Quest. Like Gonzo’s Quest, the game has an Avalanche feature, similar to cascading reels. With this slot’s medium to high volatility, you can expect to land a win on a fairly regular basis, though bigger, less frequent wins are favored. If you’re lucky enough to fill up your reels with the candyfloss waitress, you’re in for a scrumptious 37,500x maximum win!
Below we discuss how to play, take a look at graphics and similar games, and dive deeper into the features and bonuses on offer in Magic Maid Cafe.
How to play
A trip to the cafe will see players walking away with some yummy wins when they land 3 or more matching symbols on a payline. Fresh out the oven, symbols on the reels are as unique as they are delicious. Low-paying symbols include a jam-filled cookie, a slice of decadent chocolate cake, a crème caramel, and an ice-cream sundae worth 0.15x to 5x your bet. The 3 anime-style waitresses dressed in French maid outfits make up the high-paying symbols, with the pink-haired waitress being the most valuable with a win potential of 2,500x your bet for 5 of a kind. The mystery muffin is the wild symbol, substituting for all other symbols, while the heart-shaped key is the scatter, which unlocks the free-fall round.
Before playing, it’s always a good idea to review the paytable and game rules. You can find these when you click on the “?” in the bottom left corner of the screen. To play, simply choose your bet level and coin value, using the service bells on the bar below the reels. You can choose between $0.20 and $100. Then click on the latte icon in the center to get things spinning, or choose the autoplay option to the left of the play button.
The free fall and wild symbols increase your multipliers – when you line up the free fall symbols on a winning payline, you’ll trigger the Avalanche feature. Learn more about these features in the “Features and bonuses” section below.
Magic Maid Cafe boasts an all-things-pink, cutesy cafe vibe. There are two main backgrounds – one being a wood-paneled cafe with girly pink and white furniture, and the other a view of a large bay window with a comfy-looking armchair.
The game screen is busy – filled with hearts and twirls, bells and bows, a dressed-up maid to the left of the reels, and a money tree and a kitty statue to the right (all various shades of pink, of course.) NetEnt has added some thoughtful touches by customizing every little detail, right down to the option buttons, with a cup of foamy coffee featuring a swirl as the play button, and little service bells with (-) and (+) that are used to change bet levels and coin values.
Symbols on the reels will get your appetite going, including different types of tasty cakes, an ice-cream sundae, a mystery cupcake, heart-shaped key, and three cute waitresses. Ambient cafe sounds of background chatter and cutlery clinks, along with classic arcade-style sound effects immerse players in the game.
Features and bonuses
While there is no progressive jackpot in this game, there are a number of features that take it from an average cafe setting to a very exciting one, from cascading reels to multipliers and free spins.
Unlike traditional slots where the reels spin, Magic Maid Cafe boasts an avalanche feature, more commonly known as cascading reels. Any time you land a win on a payline, new symbols will fall from the top of the screen, replacing the winning symbols, while the rest of the reels remain as they were. As long as you keep hitting winning paylines, you’ll keep seeing cakes and maids cascading down.
Avalanche Multipliers feature
As discussed, the Avalanche feature sees symbols being replaced with new ones with each winning combination. Each avalanche also increases the multiplier in the base game up to 5x. This means you can see a sizable payout increase within a short period of time.
- First avalanche – 1x
- Second avalanche – 2x
- Third avalanche – 3x
- Four or more avalanches – 5x.
Free Falls feature
The scatter symbol, a heart-shaped key, triggers the Free Falls feature, which is Magic Maid Cafe’s equivalent of free spins. Three scatter symbols on reels 1, 2, and 3 will trigger 10 free falls, and once this mechanism is in play, you can retrigger the feature and gather up to 20 free spins at a time.
The Avalanche Multipliers feature is still active, however, this time you can look forward to the following multipliers:
- First avalanche – 3x
- Second avalanche – 6x
- Third avalanche – 9x
- Four or more avalanches – 15x.
Once you've used all the free falls, the total win is added to the winnings of your base game.
