Bringing something new to the “Book of” party is never easy or successful, but the Book of Charms has managed to stand out for all the right reasons. What Realistic Games have done is merge two games into one and it sort of works. Sort of!
The Book of Charms is a game that is literally split down the middle. On the left, we have the usual familiar Egyptian-themed game with an Indiana Jones-looking character, and on the right, we have a mystic Princess looking character that commands all the “lucky” symbols such as clover, horseshoes, and pink orb.
The Book of Charms isn’t really the amalgamation of two games, but it does offer more than most Book games. It takes the best of the Egyptian side of the game and plays it into the Pink Orb side. That gives you a cool take on a hybrid game with two opportunities to trigger spins. The first is Book Scatters, and the second is a Pink Orb Scatters. Both offer Free spin features. If you bag 3x Pink Orb Scatters anywhere on the board, it triggers 15 free spins and an automatic 3x win multiplier on all wins. Retriggers are active in this game too. The second is the classic Book scatter symbols with the obligatory 10 Free Spins.
Wait there’s more! Trigger the Book Free Spins from within the Pink Orb feature and it adds the 3x Multiplier. Landing three or more Pink Orb scatters in the Book Free Spins (as Expanding Symbol) could land you a staggering 165 Free Spins.
There is something new to the concept of the original game, and that is a good thing. The usual Tomb raider look and feel is starting to get a little old now, and bringing a new element to a game is rare enough, adding one that really works is all but unheard of. Hats off to the team at Realistic Games, they added something unique and it’s great.
The safer gambling element of this game is limited to all the usual autoplay mode options. Basically what you get here is a good old-fashioned dose of self-restraint, or in other words, this is just a spin and win the game with a basic autoplay mode.
Realistic Games have been around for the best part of 20 years in one form or another. Initially, they created and provided games under license to whichever Casino wanted one. In 2008 that changed and they started going games from and for themselves. A wise move from a very talented games creator.
The Book of Charms is built around the classic scatter symbols that you’d normally get with any Book of… slot, but there is a difference. Two Free spin options are available in this game. Bag a minimum of three scatter symbols to trigger your 10 Free spins Bonus round, or three Pink Orbs and get 15 Free spins.
The jackpots and wins are not as massive as others we’ve played, but there is an opportunity of bagging well over 100 + spins in a bonus round. Sounds great, but you get a little bored, and the pots don’t add up to much more than you’d get with 15 free spins.
There is no gamble feature in this game. The rest is just good old-fashioned reels and spins with functional graphics and a “twin” themed soundtrack.
