Magic Charms is a slot that will feel familiar to people that have read the story with the girl that kisses a frog that is actually a prince that transforms back to his former self. The story is recreated in this slot machine, with a design that feels appropriate in some places, and rather average in others. You will encounter a game which offers wild symbols that can expand and free spins. The slot has on its 5 reels a total of 243 ways to win, so it’s a more modern title than its design might make you believe. The big payout is worth $1,200.
Betting and Prizes
243 ways to win might be used, but the wagers use 25 lines, same as other titles with this kind of setup. You can have a maximum of 10 coins for each bet line, and they will be worth up to $0.20. You can spend $2 on a single line, or $50 on all of them.
The prizes offered by slots with ways to win tend to be lower, since they pay often, and Magic Charms is the same way. It can offer at most 6,000 coins, or $1,200.
Magic Charms Slot Features
The main feature mentioned in Magic Charms seems to be the wild symbol, which comes in two versions, on the reels 2 and 4. The 2nd reel gets the Frog Prince Wild, while the 4th reel has the Princess Wild. As wilds, they can replace any other icon that tries to form a combination by appearing on adjacent reels. They don’t replace the Magic Wand, the Chest or the Key symbols.
If you get the two types of wilds, at the same time on the reels 2 and 4, you will notice that they will expand and occupy all the positions on them. They will be locked in place, while 3 free spins trigger for the other three reels.
Should the Treasure Chest icon appear on reel 1, while the 5th reel gets the Key, you will trigger a bonus game where the key unlocks the treasure chest and shows you a prize that you’ve won.
Finally, there is another wild, a third one, which can appear stacked on the 3rd reel. It has a 2x multiplier to double prizes that it contributes to. It doesn’t replace scatters or wilds.
Theme & Design
I’m personally not a fan of the design used in Magic Charms video slot, despite the rather romantic setting in which the action occurs. You get a couple of decent looking themed symbols (treasure chests, the princess and the prince frog, the key, flowers, rings, etc), but you get dated looking poker cards as well.
Magic Charms might look dated, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t offer a decent experience, thanks to its features mostly.
