Portfolio of Wazdan company includes online gambling games of different styles and categories, including few models of video poker designed for online casinos. Some of them are traditional games with classic rules, as well as original varieties with unsocial features. One of the models of second type is «Magic Poker», which we are going to talk about in the following review by Casinoz.
One standard pack of fifty two cards with a joker is used for «Magic Poker». The joker replaces other cards in combinations when necessary.
Aim of the game is to make a paid combination provided by the rules. It is possible to chance any cards twice, but all exchanges are paid.
The minimal combination is two pairs. The maximal payoff goes to the player who collects five same cards (Four of a Kind and a joker). Royal Flush is possible only in one variety no matter was the joker used or not.
It is possible to play for one hand only. The bet is always one coin. The coin value should be clarified at the casino. Official demo version at the website of the producer provides an opportunity to choose chips in range from ten cents to one hundred euro.
All bonus options are described in the following paragraphs of the review of «Magic Poker».Gameplay
First of all you need to choose the coin value. Then you can begin a new round by click at the round button.
Here you get five cards for a hand. If they already have a paid combination, these cards are held automatically, but you can make your choice and keep other cards.
Exchange is possible twice, but it is optional. The cost of each exchange is equal to one bet.
Payoffs are calculated by multipliers from x3 to x800, provided by the rules for each of the possible combinations. They are multiplied by the total bet.
It is possible to collect the win or stake the whole amount or a half of it in the gambling feature. In this round the player needs to guess a color or the card to double up the bet. He loses all money in case of mistake. It is possible to act several times in a row.
If you withdraw your win to the account, the round is over.
Moreover, «Magic Poker» offers two prize options:
- Bonus 3 – there is a path of a few steps at the special screen, which are activated one by one every time the player gets Three of a Kind (three cards of same rank). As soon as all steps are used, the gambler gets a payoff in amount of forty coins.
- Bonus 4 – this is a bonus payoff in amount of four hundred credits played off in the similar way, but the customer needs Four of a Kind here. We suppose, the rules are clear to you.
These features are carefully described on the Help.

This is a curious game with unusual rules, joker and bonus options. The surprising feature is paid exchange, that is common for table pokers, but not for video poker. In general, if you like unusual gambling entertainments, you should test the novelty.
