Arabian Charms looks exactly like you would expect with such a name. The many domes of mosques and minarets are sticking out from the top of the reel set against a starry night sky, with pots and containers at the bottom of the screen. The whole bazaar atmosphere of the game makes it colourful and unique, with a dynamic soundtrack playing in the background to add even more authenticity to the mix.
Overall, Arabian Charms sticks to a very predictable but does it very well despite the relative simplicity of the graphics. You will not see any impressive animations stretching across the screen here, but we quite like this slightly old-fashioned / Aladdin look of the game.
Exploring the Bazaar
Arabian Charms makes things extremely easy for players, with only a couple of arrows in the command bar available to adjust your next wager. Use them to bet from 0.20 to 500 credits per turn, and play either in turn by turn or activate the autoplay game mode to spice things up a little. Otherwise, Arabian Charms behaves like a very classic slot game without any gamble mini game available.
The game’s medium variance gives players equal chances to score big and small wins on the reels at any time, which is the best way to attract a large crowd of potential gamblers. You can really play with as much or as little risk involved as you wish and still be able to win big. The paytable contains only a handful of card icons, followed by snakes, genies and game logos with a maximum prize of x250 available during the game.
Arabian Charms has quite a few special symbols to offer players, starting with the classic wild card that can replace the other icons on the reels. You can also score wild combinations for a top prize of x250. Regardless of the symbols appearing on the reels, each spin also carries a change to trigger the random Arabian Charms mystery win. The reel symbols will then automatically rearrange themselves to form the best winning combination possible.
Three scattered bonus genies on the reels initiate the exclusive Golden Trail bonus round. Spin the wheel that appears on the screen walk up the cash path and keep going for as long as you can. The maximum prize available here is the equivalent of 500 times your current bet value, which is the single largest cash reward in Arabian Charms.
A Charming Slot Game That Lacks Ambition
Playing Arabian Charms is like traveling back in time to enjoy a slightly retro slot game with a classic theme and some very interesting bonuses. The game is accessible to many players, but we really wished that the paytable were a little more generous.
The mystery win feature is a nice touch that adds a little excitement, but also rather difficult to come by. Otherwise, Arabian Charms is using basically the same gameplay as several Playtech slots such as Haunted House or Beach Life, just to name a few.
