A Fairy Tale Themed Slot Featuring Ultra Reels and Additional Wilds
The Charmed Hearts slot machine takes you into the world of fairy tales where romance is all around. On the reels you’ll find a colourful array of perfumes, chocolates while a crown and a sceptre points to the theme being all about a young queen. A fairy godmother also features, looking over her young charge and ensuring romance does indeed come her way.
The reels have an unusual setup which allows for nearly a thousand ways to win on every spin. However, land the ‘Charmed Hearts’ feature and it can get much better than that. With a free spins bonus round too, there is a lot to like about this new Konami slot.
Base Game and the Ultra Reels
The first thing you’ll notice when stood in front of Charmed Hearts slot machine is the unusual reel setup. You have the same five reels that you’ll find at many other slots, but it’s the size of the reels which are unique. Reels 1, 2 and 3 and have the usual height of 3 symbols. However, reels 4 and 5 are double the size showing 6 symbols. This might seem complicated until you realise the game utilises the all-ways winning system. This system ensures that you’ll win when landing the same symbol on consecutive reels from left to right, irrespective of the position on the reel.
When you do the maths, you’ll realise there are 972 winning chances at every spin, which makes for a highly entertaining game. These 972 ways to win come at the cost of just 50 credits, which is certainly a bonus.
The standard symbols in the game are a nice mix of royal and romance. You have the impressive gold crown, with red satin and a heart pendant in the front. The green and gold sceptre features a heart too. A blue perfume bottle encrusted with diamonds make for a perfect gift, as do the eloquent purple box of chocolates. The standard symbols are completed by the playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
Charmed Hearts Feature
The wild symbol is represented by a large golden heart. This heart will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the scatter. While this wild will give you many extra wins, the ‘Charmed Hearts’ feature goes much further.
The Charmed Hearts feature will activate randomly, either before or after a spin. You’ll see a box appear above reels 2 and 3, expanding both of these reels to six symbols high too. Within this box you’ll land a series of wilds – you can fill all six slots with wilds, although there can be blanks too. With these extra wilds in play, especially being on reels 2 and 3, this is your chance to land those mega wins which can make such a difference.
You’ll generally find that the Charmed Hearts feature pays more when appearing after a spin, as a win is then guaranteed. This feature appearing before the spin is more random.
Roses Trigger a Free Spins Bonus Round
A large, white rose plays the role of the scatter symbol. Land three or more roses across any of the reels and you’ll enter the free spins bonus round. The free spins play in the same way as the base, except for one big advantage. You are much more likely to land the Charmed Hearts feature. At base level you’ll only have 7 free spins, but you can expect to land the feature a couple of times at least, so wins will come!
Courting in the Court – Charmed Hearts Design
Konami have gone full out with the romance theme here. The backdrop to the reels is an obvious pink with flowers lining the base of the screen. The reels themselves have a sparkling blue background, while each of the symbol is rich with colour. The fairy godmother is the standout symbol, looking exactly as you might expect from a Disney film. Land a win with the wild and the scatter and you’ll see animation on the reels, while the accompanying sounds adds to the fairy tale theme.
Will You Fall in Love with the Charmed Hearts Slot?
Charmed Hearts is certainly a slot that will appeal to the more romantically inclined among you. However, that appeal will extend to those who enjoy original gameplay too. The ultra-reel setup makes Charmed Hearts a unique experience, where winning opportunities are much wider than usual. Throw in the Charmed Hearts feature with the promise of those Mega wins and there is a lot to like!
