It’s time for another trip through the reels with King of Charms. This is one of our latest featured slots online, and it’s bringing a little bit of innovation to make your bank balance healthier. From the outside, this looks like it might just be another title that makes use of the same old formula – but that assumption is wrong. We’ll take you through what the game refers to as Hot Spins, and why they might be copied by various iGaming studios attempting to make use of something new. Anyway, let’s hurry on over to the reels and see what they’ve got in store for you.
Online casino players must be crying out for new themes being applied to online slot machines. It feels like every second slot either has an Irish, Egyptian or Aztec theme. King of Charms carries an Irish theme, which means all objects synonymous with Irish luck. Inspired Gaming is the casino software studio that created this game, and even though they’ve come up with something new, which we’ll touch on later, the look and feel is very same-old, same-old. Inspired Gaming, on a side note, happens to be on a roll lately, having just released both Fruity Ways Multiplier and Halloween Cash Pots. Another thing that Inspired Gaming are excelling at is mobile casino optimisation, with mobile slots being something they appear to be specialising in.
We’ve been going through a good spell of seeing slot machines online being released with very low maximum bet amounts and high multipliers, which means that players don’t have to wager something over £100 to win an amount like £250k. However, King of Charms is one of those titles that unfortunately does. The maximum bet amount is £100, while the minimum bet amount is 10p. The most you’ll be able to win off any spin is 2,500x your bet, so wagering higher will obviously give you much better returns.
We’re going back to the look and feel of the game for a short moment, which means discussing the Irish theme. If you’re experienced in the slot machines realm, then you won’t need us telling you what the symbols of the game will be – especially the higher-value ones. This is because in Irish themed games they’re always ones that reflect the ‘luck of the Irish’ theme. So, without further ado, the higher value icons are represented by a pot of gold, a four-leaf clover, a horseshoe and a ruby heart. The symbols that carry lower values are represented by playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A.
There is only one symbol in the game that isn’t a regular icon, and this is the leprechaun. However, we’ll discuss this something in a bit.
Bonuses and Jackpots
This is where King of Charms comes into its own because if we’re honest, the base game is a little underwhelming. It’s all about Hot Spins, and they are triggered far more often than free spins. King of Charms doesn’t have any free spins or a wild icon, but in the hot spins, you’ll have tons of winning potential. These spins are triggered when you land any win that happens to be 4x your wager. When this happens, four paytables will appear on the screen, and all will spin with the goal of landing you wins. The benefit here is that off of one wager you don’t just have one five reel slot, but four five reel slots spinning on a single bet.
The leprechaun will land during hot spins and will become any symbol in the game to assist in forming winning combinations. In essence, the leprechaun is actually a wild.
Play King of Charms at PartyCasino
The reason why free spins and wilds have been left out of King of Charms is that the Hot Spins happen regularly, giving you plenty of winning opportunities. Inspired Gaming obviously felt that more added value would tip the odds far too much in favour of online casino enthusiasts. We can’t say the theme and maximum bet are also inspiring, but with the hot wins, this might just be the first of many titles you play with this concept.
