A trio of cutesy creatures are the stars of 3 Charms Crush, a colourful 5 reel, 5 payline slot from iSoftBet. It offers little in the way of extras but landing wins on specific paylines can boost payouts by up to 5x. Play this simple game on your desktop, tablet or mobile from between 5p and £5 per spin.

There’s a Korean Aegyo feel to the design here which wouldn’t look out of place in a social media game rather than a slot. The reels are made up of just 3 symbols. In order of value are green, orange and pink creatures. The green pays 2 times your stake for 5 symbol combination. Slightly higher is the orange which will get you 3 times your stake. The best symbol is the pink creature which awards 5 times your stake if you land 5 on the same payline.

To the right of the reels you’ll see a series of multiplier values. These are attached to a specific payline and can boost payouts by 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x. Land a win on payline 3 and the payout is trebled. For example, if you land 4 of the pink creature on reel 3 the standard payout of 1 times your stake receives a 3x boost and you’ll receive 3 times your stake.

The perfect scenario is to land a 5 of a kind winner featuring the pink creature on the 5x payline. If you manage that you’ll get a super win which sees the payout rocket by 20x to deliver a bumper award of some 100 times your stake. That’s your lot as far as gameplay goes.

There’s nothing on offer here by way of free spins, pick me rounds or any other traditional bonus features. All the action centres on the base game and associated multipliers. The volatility here is on the low side of medium. Expect a steady stream of lower level wins rather than potentially breaking the bank.

The cutesy theme won’t be for everyone. It’s well done if you do like this sort of thing though. 3 Charms Crush isn’t really for us. If you like the Aegyo design and simple gameplay then you should find enough to keep you going here. I would much rather play some of iSoftBet’s other offerings with Paranormal Activity and Skulls of Legend 2 of my recommendations.
