Snake Charming has existed in many parts of the world for hundreds of years. Some call it a talent, others an elaborate hoax. If you’re remotely interested in the practice, then this slot may just pique your curiosity. It’s called The Snake Charmer and is brought to the market by NextGen Gaming.
We have to admit, the game has a beautiful setting. The slot is undoubtedly set in India as we can see the majestic Taj Mahal sitting in the background of the reels. The reels themselves comprise of 25 pay lines spread across 5 reels and 3 rows. Bets start from just a penny and can rise to £50 per spin if your budget allows.
The symbols are a mixture of poker values and those relating to Indian culture. Symbols 9-A are on the lower end of the value scale. To gain a higher return, players will be looking to land multiples of the snakes in baskets, the pungi, the elephant or the dancing girl.
The placid looking snake covers the wild symbol. By landing 5 on an active pay line, you’ll increase your line stake by 5,000x. However, it can also be used to substitute for other symbols except for the charmer.
The snake charmer is the game's scatter. Players who manage to land 3 or more anywhere on the reels will be taken to the extra spin feature. You’ll instantly be given 10 extra spins. During extra spins, the wild becomes an expanding wild. Whenever it lands, it expands to fill the entire reel which gives you far more scope to land multiples on a pay line.
There is a gamble feature which will give you the chance to double or quadruple your win. It can be triggered after any regular win. Correctly guess the colour or suit of a covered card and your win will be doubled or quadrupled.
