We’re all princes and princesses in our own little universes, and we all like to experience a fairy tale with a prince charming or princes gorgeous now and again. And if romance is your middle name, if you feel ready to get more of this sweet potion called ardour and jump into the magical fairy tale world where finding love takes only the first sight and a juicy kiss, take a look at Microgaming’s “Magic Charms”
“Magic Charms” Characteristics
The name says it all – you’re introduced to a slot with beautiful background illustrations and lovely symbols, all depicting the perfect romantic setting. The slot machine itself is set on five reels, offering 243 ways to win, and it features colorful symbolism which includes engagement rings, treasure chests, frog prince and his princess, magic wands and a range of poker symbols. The only thing that stands out from the theme are the sounds, which are too plain for such a fine game.
However, that’s not the game’s only problem – what may be considered far worse are its payouts, which are quite tight and don’t let you win often on special features and animated symbols, but rather give out only minor prizes for poker symbols.
If you come to peace with the fact that you don’t stand significant winning odds in the game and decide to play it and enjoy its beauty anyway, “Magic Charms” will offer you to wager a bet within a range of 0.01 to 50.00 (coins ranging from 1 to 20 cents, with up to 10 coins per spin) which should be able to cover most player types.
The game’s feature-rich, and the features may award you with some decent wins, but the major problem is that you’ll likely spend much more waiting for the feature than you’ll earn in it (and this happens even in Free Play mode, which should be much more generous than the Real Money mode).
Going back to the features themselves, you’ll find a fine host of them here – three wilds, two bonus symbols, free spins, multipliers, a Gamble feature… and most of them come with an interesting twist, which would make the play far more dynamic if they appeared more often.
The first wild is the Magic Wand symbol, which appears only on reel 3 and doubles all winnings. It’s the most common feature to appear, and it may come stacked, allowing for better payouts.
Then the two main symbols are the Frog Prince wild and the Princess wild, which appear only on reel 2 and 4 respectively. Their function is double – when appearing solo, they serve as wilds. But when they appear at the same time, they trigger a bonus round which consists of 3 free spins and the two of them expanded to occupy the whole reels and make them wild throughout the three free spins, thus offering significant winning chances.
As for the two bonus symbols, they include a treasure chest on reel 1 and a key on reel 5. When the two appear simultaneously, the key will unlock the chest and reveal an instant prize. This is another feature that’s hard to trigger, almost as hard as the free spins.
Finally, everything you win in the game (and this won’t be easy), you can put at an addition stake in the Gamble feature, which is a typical card gamble in which wins can be doubled or quadrupled. Or lost, for that matter.
While the game is really wonderful in terms of its graphics and features, it really should be loosened up a bit in terms of the frequency of its payouts. Only this will make us players not get cold feet and run away, realizing that love at first sight may sometimes be more treacherous than it seems.
