Charms and Witches is a 5-reel and 25-paylines slot developed by NextGen Gaming. The Halloween-themed game features a Spooky Bats bonus feature, where regular symbols turn wild, a Pick me bonus feature awarding extra cash prizes, and up to 20 free spins with 2x multiplier. If you want more details about the Charms and Witches, read our full review below.
Unlike NextGen’s jolly and colorful Witch Pickings slot, this one has a classic spooky witch theme. There is a creepy old house in the background with Halloween pumpkins casually lying on the ground and a full moon shining over it. The graphics are gorgeous and you can tell they were put together with a lot of attention to detail. The music is mysterious and ghostly, just like the haunted house in the background.
You can play the game with 25 fixed paylines. The minimum you can wager is 25p per spin and the maximum is £625 per spin. If you prefer to have fun on the go, Charms and Witches is a good option, as the game can be played on all devices, including tablet and mobile.
The regular symbols include a bunch of nighttime animals and classic witchy artifacts, such as broomsticks, shoes, hats, a black cat, a scarecrow, a cauldron, a frog, a crow, and a rat. Of course, there is a seductive witch, who also awards the biggest payout of all the regular symbols – 500 coins for 5 of her on the reels.
Charms and Witches has a theoretical return to player percentage (RTP) of 95.53%.
The Wild symbol is the golden door knocker and it substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter. The Wild also awards the biggest payout during the base game of up to 3000 coins. There is a Spooky Bats bonus where a swarm of bats may fly on the screen and turn symbols into Wilds. The feature is triggered randomly, so it might happen at any time.
The Scatter is a flying bat and when you land 3 or more Scatters, you’ll get 10 free spins with doubled prizes. The free spins can be retriggered, so you might end up having 20 free games. On top of that, the Spooky Bats bonus occurs more frequently during the free games, which further boosts your chances of winning some serious cash.
In addition to the Wild and Scatter, there is another special symbol called Pick me. If the Pick me potion symbol appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 at the same time, you need to pick one of the symbols to win an additional cash prize. You might reveal ‘Pick Again’ or ‘Win All’, which will increase your total winnings.
Charms and Witches is yet another quality addition to NextGen’s portfolio. The game will quickly put you in a Halloween mood and you might get back to it long after the festivities are over. The slot is a real eye candy, with stunning graphics and variety of rewarding bonus features.
