MORE ABOUT PIRATES CHARM SLOT
Quickspin, renowned for games with super-slick artwork, has taken to the high seas to borrow ideas from the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise in their May 2018 slot release, Pirate’s Charm.
Fans of Quickspin may remember Razortooth, this studio’s other 243 ways slot, a big favorite amongst players. That game gets the blood pumping with stacked wilds in the free spins round and a saber-tooth tiger that jumps through the screen, delivering random wilds!
Nothing quite as dramatic here, but the main feature is something called Mystery Charms which has a big impact on what happens in both the base game and the bonus round – it’s basically a transforming symbol that will create winning lines when it lands, but it comes with the added bonus that it can trigger re-spins and lock into place.
There is also a free spins round that gives 10 plays, during which you can trigger extra spins again with the Mystery Charm which will lock in place, potentially setting up the game’s biggest win combo.
It’s all exciting stuff, let’s find out a bit more …
SOME KEY FACTS ABOUT PIRATES CHARM SLOT
- This game is a 5 reel and 3 row slot with 243 ways to win – that means it will pay out for all identical symbols on adjacent reels from left to right. There are no paylines – you just need the symbols on adjacent reels.
- The theme is pirates of course and the Quickspin team have been hard at work to create a really slick looking slot – the symbols look incredible and the background is a ghostly old sea-port, shrouded in fog.
- Check out the low value card symbols which are 10 through to Ace, and the high value ones which are the ships wheel, the skull and cutlasses, a male pirate, a female pirate and the pirate captain who pays out 50x for five in a row himself.
- Unlike many Quickspin games, there are no Wilds here. It is the Mystery Charm that does all the work – transforming into other symbols to create winning lines.
- There is also a Black Ship scatter symbol that triggers the free spins for three on the reels at once.
- Play Pirate’s Charm slot from 20p to £100 per spin.
PIRATES CHARM FEATURES AND BONUS ROUND
Here’s how the features work – remember, it’s all about the Mystery Charms, so look out for those symbols.
When a Mystery Charm lands ANYWHERE on the reels it will start transforming into other symbols. It will continue to do so until a winning line is created.
Get re-spins when Mystery Charms land on reels 1 to 3 at once …
Yes, that’s what we’re looking for – a Mystery Charm symbol on each of reels 1 to 3 simultaneously will trigger re-spins. The great thing here is – your Mystery Charm symbols stick through the re-spins, and as new ones land, they too will transform and stick.
Re-Spins only stop when no more Mystery Charms land after a spin.
Free spins come too …
Look out as well for three Black Ship Scatters landing on the middle three reels – this triggers the Stormy Free Spins round. Here you get 10 free spins. And once again, your Mystery Charms transform and lock through the round!
Extra free spins …
It is also possible to trigger an additional 2 free spins if you turn a whole reel into Mystery Charm symbols. Turn all five reels into Mystery Charms and that’s 10 free spins – and if they lock as the highest paying symbol, then that is the maximum win!
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
It’s great to see another 243 ways to win release from Quickspin. This slot is towards the high variance mark, but there is plenty going on in the base game to keep things interesting. The Mystery Charms turn up fairly regularly, but you will need to push into the free spins round to really get some decent payouts, and that’s not easy. We recommend playing with a decent bankroll to give yourself a chance here, though chose your stake carefully so you don’t burn through it too quickly!
