Sheer Magic is one of the few slot games from Ainsworth based on a magic style theme. Very few slots take inspiration from the magician’s world and this slot game has adapted it in an effortless way. It comes with 5 reels and 50 pay lines and helps you weave magic into your fortune albeit that’s if you get some luck also along the way. You might not pull a rabbit out of a hat but you may just win a few bucks on this pokie.

Final Verdict for Sheer Magic:
Magic themes is one area in the gaming history of slots that has not been utilized very much until over time. The other notable similar genre slot worth a mention would be Rabbit In The Hat slot by Microgaming. Sheer Magic has made its best efforts to incorporate the same into its slot and has succeeded to some extent but it does not blow my mind by any standards.
But it would have been better if we were to see some more exciting bonuses and features added to the game. Overall, it is a good game if you like the enchanting and magical theme and we give it just 6 from 10 points, play it free on your iPad at Players Paradise or for real money at your local Ainsworth casino.
