Casino Charms Slots

Las Vegas has always been a gamblers’ Mecca. And while online play has taken off like a storm in recent years, it’s not quite the real thing. With the rapid expansion of technology, soon you’ll be able to get the full experience using VR headsets! But until that day comes, we’ll have to settle for fun casino-themed slots, like the one Playtech is offering us. Casino Charms is played on a 6x7 board with 80 fixed paylines. Available special features include Roxy Re-spins and the Casino Charms bonus.While the re-spins are being played, Wilds and Roxy symbols are frozen in place. Meanwhile, bonus number two determines everything with one spin of the lucky wheel.

How to Play

Graphics look okay, but they’re nothing to praise too heavily. The background looks cool, though it feels a little too generic for our tastes. It’s a bunch of flashy looking buildings, hidden behind the reels and random colours. Don’t get us wrong, it looks cool! But there’s little substance there compared to something like Sky Queen. You play this game on a 6-reel board, where each subsequent reel is taller than the previous one. The first reel is three icons tall, the second one is four symbols tall and so on. This continues until the fifth and sixth reel, which are both seven icons tall. Three or more identical symbols in adjacent positions, starting with the leftmost reel, award a win.

Betting Options and Payout

Setting your total bet could have been a nightmare with such a complicated reel layout. Fortunately, Playtech managed to spare their players from a headache. All you have to do is press the plus and minus buttons, and the total bet value changes accordingly.This release allows wagers ranging between $0.20 and $500 per spin, which is awesome value for money. Casino Charms has medium-high volatility and an RTP of 96.07%, which is above the current industry average. The top prize is 800x the total bet. The end goal isn’t to land one massive jackpot, but to combine several big wins. This is a lot different than what Playtech usually offers, which made for a refreshing change of pace.

Symbols and Extra Features

There isn’t much of a theme present beyond pretty girl and Vegas. The icon design reflects this! You’ll find playing card symbols, bars, cards, casino chips, gambling dice, lucky sevens, diamonds and Roxy as regular icons. Roxy also serves as a trigger for re-spins. If she appears fully stacked on the first reel, she will activate two re-spins. During re-spins, Roxy and any Wilds will lock in place, increasing the odds of landing a big win. At the same time, the colourful bonus symbol triggers the Casino Charms special feature. Land three on the first, second and third reel to get a spin on the lucky wheel. Said lucky wheel can then award one of three prizes. • Up to 25 free spins • Up to 15 extra turns with fully stacked Wilds on the fifth and sixth reel • Up to eight Mega Re-spins

Our Verdict

It’s far from the best slot Playtech has ever created. The visuals and theme failed to excite us – after all, Vegas-themed games are a dime a dozen. But we did like the unique reel layout and the special features. With higher volatility and a better jackpot, we can see this release quickly becoming a fan favourite.
