Pirate’s Charm is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot from Quickspin that is playable on all devices from 20p to £100 per spin. Their darkest release to date, this pirate themed adventure takes you on the search for golden charms which have mystical powers and can transform your wins.

Visually, I must say Pirate’s Charm is absolutely stunning – reminiscent of a Pirates of the Caribbean set, it has and old wooden deck as the base of the reel set. Symbols on the reels including A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards as well as lady pirates, male pirates and pirate skulls with swords and pirate sheep wheels.

The most important symbol is the Mystery Charm though – these can appear anywhere on the reels and transform into a randomly chosen symbol. The Mystery Charm will carry on transforming until you get a winning combination.

When the golden charm appears on reels 1, 2 and 3 simultaneously, the Mystery Charms Respins feature is activated – the symbols lock in place with a free respin to follow. If you get more Mystery Charms, they also lock in place with more respins to follow.

The other symbol to look out for the black ship scatter – when it appears simultaneously on the 3 middle reels, you will activate the Stormy Free Spins feature. You begin with 10 free spins with all golden charms being sticky throughout the feature.

If you get a reel fully covered in Mystery Charm symbols, you will receive 2 additional free spins – this means getting a screen full of Mystery Charms will result in 10 extra free spins. If you do this and they transform into the highest value male pirate symbol, you will get the maximum win.

Saying that, the biggest wins will come with the Mystery Charms Respins feature as you get wins from every respin – this can lead, if they all transform into the male pirate symbol, to wins of 3,861 times total stake! Pirate’s Charm is a high volatile slot though so it’s far from plain sailing as the storm clouds gather in the features.

Overall, Pirate’s Charm is a superb Quickspin release – the question is whether you’re brave enough to embrace the wild weather. If you like the pirate theme, Novomatic’s Red Lady and iSoftBet’s Skulls of Legend are recommended – and high variance.
