When we look at new slot machines online these days, we can see a lot of trends developing. Many games feature sharp graphics or cinematic animations. Others feature themes that are ripped from movies or comic books. Some machines offer intense action and amazingly innovative special features.
But for many slots players, the biggest compliment you could give a slot machine is still this: that it’s fun to play. That’s the attribute that’s most notable about Magic Charms, one of the series of new games set for release by Microgaming. There’s no one feature that stands out as a special reason why you should play this game, but it features a fun and colorful theme that might just bring a little joy to your heart – and a little extra cash to your wallet!
About The Game
Magic Charms is a 243 Ways slot machine. That means that it’s a game in which paylines are not an issue; instead, you’ll pay just one price to secure every possible winning combination on this five-reel slot machine in which three rows of symbols are displayed on screen. That doesn’t mean you’re forced to play for a certain amount, though; with the many different betting options made available to players, each spin can cost as little as £0.01 or as much as £50.
In Magic Charms, you’ll be set with matching a variety of whimsical symbols. This starts with the basic tens, jacks, and so forth; these symbols are given a little extra life thanks to some symbolic graphical touches added to them, like a crown for the “king” and a scepter for the “queen.” Beyond that, you’ll see symbols that fit a colorful fantasy world, ranging from golden rings and single roses to a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.
Based on early reports and screenshots from the machine, the graphics look just perfect for a game with a magical theme. The background is a fully illustrated forest scene, complete with impossibly large mushrooms and a bright flue sky. The entire game features bold colors; there’s lots of blue, green and red, with the reels themselves colored in a bright purple. In a time when many games, movies and even slots are going for a darker and “edgier” look, this is definitely a welcome change of pace.
While the full details of this machine haven’t been released yet, we do know all about one of the game’s bonus features, one which takes a very common fairy tail story and turns it into a chance to win huge prizes. There’s a Frog Prince symbol that can appear on the second reel, and a Princess symbol that’s available only on the fourth reel. Alone, both of these act as wild symbols. However, if you should hit them on the same spin, they will each expand to fill their respective reels before awarding prizes. You’ll then earn three free spins with the wild reels locked in place, giving you a chance at winning some massive prizes.
