Pirates Charm is a beautiful Quickspin pirate video slot, and they have every right to be as proud as a peacock
In full Netent style, Quickspin released trailers, teasers and even a real making-of video of this Pirates Charm slot.
And they have every right to be proud of this title: it looks gorgeous and has some unique bonus features.
Variance and payout percentage of Pirates Charm
The variance is slightly higher than we are used to with Quickspin slots. We estimate it to be medium.
The theoretical payout percentage is precisely what we have come to expect of this Swedish games provider: above average at 96.49%.
Pirates Charm gameplay & features
This online slot has no fixed paylines but works according to the win all ways mechanism. There are 5 reels with 3 symbols per reel, so the number of ways to win is 243.
The minimum bet is a very reasonable $€ 0.20 per spin, and the maximum bet is limited to $€ 100 per spin.
Symbols and payouts
As it should be with a real pirate slot machine, the premium symbols are real buccaneers.
The highest paying symbol is the tough one-eyed male pirate captain. He yields 5 x the bet for 5 of the same.
The female one-eye pirate (what a cute pair they make) is good for 4 x the bet for every 5-of-a-kind.
The other premium symbols pay between 1.5 x and 3 x the total bet for 5 identical ones.
The card symbols traditionally hold the least value: 5 x a 10, J, Q, K or A, award you between 0.75 x and 1 x the bet.
The Charm symbol is a mystery symbol and appears in stacks on the reels. At the end of each spin, it becomes clear in which symbol all charm symbols will transform. This can, of course, result in very nice payouts. It’s a bit unfortunate though you have to sit through a rather long animation, which you can’t click away (belief us, we tried). Now that’s not as annoying as it sounds since there is a chance you’ll make one or more winning combinations with the mystery symbols.
Sometimes, however, you know that it’s impossible to form another winning combo and then it isn’t very pleasant to have to go through the motions anyway.
If you spin a charm symbol on reels 1, 2 and 3, the Charm Respins will be activated. It is now up to you to spin as many extra charm symbols as possible. Every time you manage to hit one or more of these symbols, you will receive a free respin. In the meantime, you collect all the winning combinations that are added to the total winnings.
This Mystery Spin can be activated at random and awards you added charm symbols on the next spin, increasing the chance of hitting the Charm Respins.
Free Spins Bonus
The absolute highlight of Pirates Charm is, without doubt, the free spins bonus. This can be won by spinning three scattered pirate ships on reels 2, 3 and 4.
You win 10 free spins, and all charm symbols become sticky. Do you have at least one charm symbol on each reel? Then you are guaranteed to grab a (nice) payout for every spin.
When you have filled an entire reel with charm symbols, you earn two extra free spins.
This bonus is very original and exciting at the same time. Saving the charm symbols and the way you earn retriggers is a lot of fun. It is also absolutely possible to take home big profits with this free spins bonus.
