NetEnt launches Magic Maid Cafe™ slot at US NetEnt Casinos
Those that are familiar with the NetEnt slots, will notice that the new Magic Maid Cafe™ slot isn’t really new. Taken from its Asian portfolio, this new US NetEnt slot has now turned into a US version. However, the gameplay has been around since 2011, the year the Gonzo’s Quest™ slot was launched, introducing the innovative Avalanche feature. This time no Gonzo, but three anime-themed maids.
Maid Cafe, only in Japan!
While Gonzo’s Quest™ was based on a Spanish conquistador, the Magic Maid Cafe™ slot’s inspiration is to be found in Japan!
Maid Cafes are spread all over Japan and quite a few are available in Tokyo. Tourists love the Maid Cafes as we don’t have anything like it in Europe or the US. At least, not that I ever heard of.
You will be welcomed and served by Japanese girls with a maid costume. No no, it has nothing to do with Carnaval nor Halloween! Some are just cafes with a maid at your service, some have live performances too.
Phrases like “Oishikuna-re” (“Be delicious!” ) or “Moe, Moe, Kyun!” have been heard a lot. Some might even know the sentences without visiting a maid café. They became common sentences.
The girls, the menu, and even the food, it all looks like it comes straight from a girly anime. It’s all so pink and sweet! And before you leave your Maid Cafe experience behind, you must have a picture with the maid that served you so friendly!
In Michigan and West-Virginia, players can now enjoy the Maid Cafe experience. It’s today that NetEnt launches the Magic Maid Cafe™ slot at the US NetEnt Casinos.
Magic Maid Cafe™ slot review
Anime-themed, it’s obvious that the three maids look as if they came straight from an anime series. I can know, because I have to listen to the sounds of anime quite often. I try not to be too close to the TV screen when I hear the high pitch sounds so familiar from anime. After 3,5 years of being confronted with anime, I did get used to the Japanese language, though.
Luckily, no high-pitch sounds in the Magic Maid Cafe™. But I do hear recognizable sounds in this new game. And I’m sure all NetEnt fans will! It’s the jingle that comes with every win we all know from Gonzo’s Quest™, used again in this anime-themed slot.
The reason of this familiar sound, is the fact that the entire Magic Maid Cafe™ slot is a copy of Gonzo’s Quest™. This simply means that the graphics have turned the game into a maid café. The slot features remain the same. Therefore, you can look forward to all the best slot features including the Avalanche feature, increasing Multipliers, and Free Falls.

A fantastic innovation we still don’t see much these days, is the falling blocks. Instead of the traditional spinning, the symbols drop in the Magic Maid Cafe™ slot. They disappear when involved in a winning combination. Just to be replaced by new symbols. This results in a new spin to happen with the Multiplier climbing up. This is called the Avalanche feature, one of NetEnt’s best slot innovations.
Three keys in succession unlocks 10 Free Falls. Those lucrative multipliers are trebled offering 3x, 6x, 9x, and a maximum Multiplier of 15x. This feature on its own makes the Magic Maid Cafe™ slot worth it.
