Central to it is a ‘Mystery Charm’ feature and a Stormy Free Spins feature that awards up to 20 free spins with Mystery Charm symbols.
It’s a non-progressive jackpot slots that pays a top cash prize of 3,861x your stake on a single spin. We find Pirates Charm to be high variance. The audio track of the game fits the theme right down to a ‘T’.
Against the backdrop of the reels you’ll see a port but it changes to a stormy background during the free spins. The symbols on the reels include cards from 10 to Ace (low value), the captain, girl pirate, the ship’s crew, black ship (scatter) and pirate skulls. The most valuable symbol is the ‘Captain’, 5 of them appear on the reels at the maximum bet per spin pays £50.

A feature that struck us about the game is that it’s very difficult to trigger the free spins. It took us around 180 spins at an average bet of £0.20 to trigger the free spins. Despite its cracking visuals and theme you can find yourself in stormy seas sooner than later. Just keep this in mind when you play the game.
It’s the first time we’ve come a cross a slots that hasn’t got a wild symbol. Instead of wilds you’ll see ‘Mystery Charm’ symbols popping up left, right and centre. To say the least it’s a crafty move from Quickspin!
Mystery Charms Re-spins
The Mystery Charm symbols can best be described as innovative and the main feature of the slots. Although no wilds appear, they transform any symbol into a winning combination which makes for some exciting game play.
The Mystery Charms re-spins feature is played when the Mystery Charms golden symbol pops up on reels 1, 2 and 3. Re-spins will be given, if more Mystery Charms appear, they’ll also stick to the reels offering extra re-spins. Re-spins and payouts will occur as long as the Mystery Charms symbol stick to the reels.
Stormy Free Spins
”2 extra free spins is given for every full reel covered with Mystery Charm symbols.”
The scatter icon is the black ship, 3 or more of them on the centre reels trigger the free spins feature – 10 free spins is awarded along with golden charms. Should the golden charms cover an entire reel set an extra 10 free spins will be awarded making it 20 in total. The jackpot (3,861x your stake) is won when the golden charms transform into the Captain (male pirate) symbol.
Don’t expect plain sailing with Quickspin’s Pirates Charm, it’s a very volatile slots that will wreak havoc with your bankroll. Despite its cracking visuals, interesting game mechanic and soundtrack, this slots is simply to ‘wild’ for us.
It takes ages to trigger the free spins (up to 200 spins, maybe more). Although it doesn’t have any wilds the ‘Mystery Charms’ symbol has the ability to turn a losing spin into a winning one, suffice to say it’s a deft touch.
