Arabian Charms Slots Review

Arabian Charms Slot Review

The enchanting lands of Arabia always hand online slot developers a lot of space to maneuver. Likewise, Arabian Charms has a lot of design features that blend in this genre. This online slot is part of the Barcrest stable.

Arabian Charms consists of 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 fixed paylines. The golden reels are at the top of a pile of coins and in the backdrop there’s a misty view of vaulted turrets and slim line towers. There’s a peppy soundtrack attached to the gameplay.

There are three high value symbols - game’s logo, the snake charmer and his coiled green snake. Q, K and A depict the lower value symbols.

The young boy is the wild symbol and he can replace all others except the bonus icon, which is the genie character that triggers the main feature.

Bonus Features

Golden Trail Bonus

This is activated when three of the bonus symbols land on reels two, three and four. Since this is a board game, you need to spin the wheel to move up it, increasing the multiplier values through the course.

You continue spinning till you make it to the big prize at the top or hit the ‘Collect’ segments on the wheel. When you land a green segment, it will upgrade the trail so it becomes more valued. 500x the total stake is the biggest prize in this online slot.

Mystery Win Bonus

During each spin, irrespective of winning or non-winning there is a possibility that blue orbs will land on the reels, transforming random symbols into matching ones. This will lead to either the creation of a winning combo or improve upon one you’re already landed.

Our verdict

This not just a  good-looking, but also a smooth-playing slot. Barcrest has done a commendable job. The gameplay is addictive and the bonus features are very interesting. The RTP is 95.00%.
