Arabian Charms is one of Barcrest’s slot machines, a game that is borrowing its theme from popular Middle Eastern stories and characters. You don’t see particularly interesting graphics inside, but for the fans of this type of game it will be offering some decent rewards.
5×3 reels will host 20 fixed lines in Arabian Charms. The game promises payouts of up to $250,000, but it also has several features for you to explore, such as the wild symbol, scatters, a Golden Trail Bonus or the Mystery Win Bonus.
Look in the bottom left corner, to find the wager options. One allows you to modify the stake per line, while the other just tells you how many lines are used in the game, so this latter part is not modifiable. You may pick a stake per line of $0.01 to $25, for which the resulting total bet will be between $0.20 and $500.
Arabian Charms Jackpot
The upper limit of what you can win in Arabian Charms, for a single game, is $250,000. You can get that much via the Trail Bonus, which promises a reward of 500x the stake. The game’s winning combinations are quite low in value, the best one giving you only 250 coins, so for the most part don’t expect huge wins coming your way.
With the 95% RTP that’s been announced for this game, this isn’t exactly a must play slot machine, but it’s close enough to today’s industry standard, of 96%, that it’s not a problem if you like everything else about Arabian Charms.
Expect to find several regular features, meaning wilds, scatters or free spins, along with a random mystery win, but not much else. This isn’t the sort of game to innovate, it just tries to offer solid gameplay, which everyone can enjoy.
For these icons, Barcrest chose the image of the Arabian Prince, sitting on a pile of gold and sporting the Wild logo in front of him. It’s an important symbol, partly because its appearance might bring you winning combinations that you wouldn’t be able to form otherwise, and partly because it pays the most when it forms its own. Its own rewards reach 250x for each full line of symbols. There is only one limitation placed on the ability of this wild to act as a replacement, and it comes into play when the scatter symbol is involved.
Mystery Win Bonus
Every single game that you spin through will have its own chance to randomly trigger a Mystery Win. You might get an improvement of the current round’s existing win, or the game might take the last losing round and turn it into a winning one.
Golden Trail Bonus
To reach this stage of the game, you need the Genie icon scattered in three locations, on all three reels from the middle. The feature involves a Wheel which you have to spin, deciding how many steps you will travel on the cash path. The spins continue, allowing you to advance, for as long as you don’t get a Collect message from the Wheel or when you get to the top prize of 500x the bet. A Trail Upgrade is possible if you get the Prince icon on the Wheel.
Arabian Charms is based not just on the Middle East, but on the story of the wish-granting genie as well. You see the main character and the genie both in some of the game’s major symbols, along with some logos or the image of a Cobra in a basket. Other than that, expect to find several Royals as well, in their usual less than glorious form. It’s not a great looking game by today’s standards.
Arabian Charms gives the player below average graphics or RTP, but it has a big payout to give away and a Middle Eastern theme that many will want to see what it’s all about.
