We think every slot should have some charm if it is going to tempt you to give it a try. Arabian Charms certainly nails that with the title but look at the game itself and you’ll see the charm goes way beyond that.
You can probably guess what you’ll find here. The theme, the icons, and the ideas have all been seen before. But does this slot game have some surprises in store as well?
Barcrest is known for coming up with some successful slot games. They provide the home for the Rainbow Riches collection of titles, for instance. Could Arabian Charms be as successful as that collection?
The demo version is just like the real one, except you’re not going to risk anything in trying it. Look for the demo credits, ready to play with when you’re ready to try it and see what you think first.
The mere mention of Arabia in the title suggests this is going to touch on that part of the world with its presentation. It does, indeed, and we can see how this works when we move on to the design portion of our slot game review.
The charm certainly is turned on big time when you load the game. The colors are bright yet not too harsh on the eyes. There is gold underneath the reels, towers soaring into the sky in the background, and plenty on the reels to support the theme too.
Look out for green snakes in baskets, a young boy, and the game logo as well. There are three letters representing the lowest-valued symbols, but even these are polished and colorful.
Firstly, we can see five reels in a golden surround when the game begins. These are clearly separated from each other with gold lines too. The game doesn’t have a progressive jackpot prize to be won, but it does present us with other features that are good to look for.
There is a labeled wild that shows the boy kneeling in front of the city. This can pay on its own for three or more of a kind. It also substitutes for other symbols except for the bonus symbol. This is also labeled and is represented by a different character.
You get 20 lines to play on in the game. The controls under the reels show that those lines are fixed.
Only one coin can be wagered per line. The total wager can be between 10 cents and a huge $500, so this game is designed to appeal to most players with a budget to think about.
You’ll see it on the far right of all the controls underneath the reels.
The first one to note is the Arabian Charms Mystery Win Bonus. This occurs at random, regardless of whether a spin has resulted in a prize or not. If this feature does trigger, you’ll see some blue orbs appearing in view. They have the power to change randomly selected symbols to turn into others elsewhere on the reels. This could have two outcomes. You may end up with a better prize compared to one you had just won. Alternatively, it could turn a losing spin into a winning one.
The main bonus feature is unlocked by finding three bonus icons spread over the middle three reels of the game. This takes you through to the Golden Trail Bonus Board Game. The idea is simple – see how far you can progress along the trail before the game ends. The best outcome is to get 500x your triggering bet for the game. However, if you land on COLLECT, you’ll end the round and pick up whatever you had won up to that point.
Considering we have a random bonus and a board game bonus you may not miss them.
Arabian Charms has a return to player percentage of 95% according to our research.
This is surely one of the most colorful takes on this Arabian theme we have ever seen. Some players might be disappointed to see no free games available, but the bonuses more than make up for that in our opinion. We’re rating this as 9/10.
No, not in this game. However, the biggest prize within the base game is 250x your bet for five wilds. Of course, you could net up to 500x your wager if you made it all the way through the bonus game.
This is a great title to play simply to pass the time. If you’re keen on finding some new games to play based on this theme, we highly suggest you check this one out.
There are plenty of those around, and while this title isn’t new, it still offers you a great time.
