Pirate-themed slots just never seem to lose popularity, do they? This new game sees Quickspin have a crack at the theme, and to be fair, they do a relatively decent job of putting everything together.
There are aspects of the game which are samey, as you will find in most slots from this developer, but overall, this swashbuckling slot has enough to appeal to most players.
Quickspin is something of a take it or leave it software provider. Sometimes they can knock a mobile slot right out of the park, and other times, you find yourself wondering just what they were thinking. Fortunately, with Pirates Charm, the casino software providers seem to have got everything bang on the money. In a slot genre where there are plenty of rivals, this pirate-themed slot will give the competition a run for their money.
How to play
As you will no doubt have seen from the very moment you start the Pirates Charm game, there are 243 paylines present on this mobile slot’s 5 reels. None of the lines can be altered by the orange and dull wagering menu, but you can mess with your stakes to wager anything from $0.20 per spin, up to $100 per spin.

Mystery Charm symbols: Mystery symbols appear in this game. They are really substitutes for wilds, which do not make an appearance. Known as Mystery Charm symbols (to fit in with the theme of the game) these icons can all turn into the same symbols which they appear on the reels, with those symbols being chosen at random, though not including scatters. They are in a sense, a sort of wild.
Mystery Charm re-spins: landing 3 Mystery Charm icons on the first three reels of the game has its perks. It will trigger a re-spin feature. During this bonus, players will continue to get re-spins with Mystery Charm icons if more of these symbols appear during the re-spins.
Bonus symbols: Bonus symbols appear as pirate ships. The ghostly symbols can trigger a proper free spins bonus if they appear on the reels at least 3 times. Bonus symbols do not pay out scattered cash prizes, though.
Free spin bonus: Once the bonus round begins, players will get to play with a total of 10 free spins. During the feature, any Mystery Charm symbols you happen to come across will be doubly as handy. They will now remain on the reels for the entire bonus round. As you can imagine, this can result in decent wins, especially when they appear stacked on those reels.
If you were to criticise Pirates Charm for anything at all, it would be the value of the non-progressive jackpot. The top prize is only valued at 2,000 coins. However, the return to player rate is fixed at a very impressive 96.49%, vastly more than we’re used to seeing from slots by this developer.
Wagers are cheap, the graphics are impressive, and the RTP rate is excellent. Given that there are ample pirate-themed slots out there, the fact that Quickspin has been able to come up with a game that stands out is incredible. This is a game which is undoubtedly worth a minute or two of your time.
