The Snake Charmer
The Snake Charmer
The wombat says: Wombats and slithery reptiles aren’t the best of friends in the Outback, so we’ve really never understood the allure of snake charmers.
But, show us a slot with a snake charmer theme that we can play in comfort and safety of our own homes and we’ll give it a ruddy go! Which is exactly what NextGen have done with the Snake Charmer slot!
This is a classic toon slot along the lines of the Amazing Aztecs slot and Top Cat. Thankfully, the snake in this game is very generous and offers lots of cash in your coffers – so put your fears aside and let’s spin…
Look and Feel
As you’d expect, snake-charmer piped music makes up the soundtrack to this slot – and quite hypnotising it is too -which is quite dangerous for a wombat (particularly when there’s giant snakes about).
Your reels are set on a background filled with snake baskets, a golden temple (that looks a bit like the Taj Mahal) and some fields. It’s basic but fun, one of those classic cartoon games like the Fishin’ Frenzy slot and Fluffy Too.
The Snake Charmer slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 pay-lines- quite a few more than the likes of the Shaolin’s Tiger slot for example, but fewer than some other games we played. Let’s call it average on the pay-line front, shall we?
Your symbols on the reels include include the snake charmer in his trademark turban, the magic musical pipe, an female belly dancer, an elephant and the standard 9, 10, J, Q, K & A playing cards as your low value symbols.
The wild symbol is represented by the snake himself. This slippery little symbol will do the usual job of standing in for all other symbols to scoop you extra winning combinations. Oh, and if you manage to land 5x of the icons you’ll get a whopping 5000x your original stake!
Meanwhile it’s the sleepy-looking charmer who is the scatter symbol in the game will trigger off the free spins – so keep your eyes peeled for him!
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Land 3x or more of the Scatters anywhere on the reels and you’ll set off the Snake Charmer Feature. Next, 10 free spins will be yours and during the bonus the snake may pop up from its basket underneath the reels to randomly expand on the reels – hence giving you heaps more more winning combinations! He’ll also become all psychedelic which is sssssssimply marvellous.
You’ll also be pleased to hear that some chunky wins are available particularly if you land the expanding snake Wild across more than one reel…
So if you feel like upping the ante a bit Wombat Fans, then you can gamble on any win you make, simply by predicting the next turn of a card. If you guess the correct suit you can quadruple your win, or if you guess the colour you can double it! Hurrah and huzzah!
A word of warning though: if you guess incorrectly you lose your whole payout from that spin, so only you can decide if it is worth the gamble…
It’s an odd one wombat fans, The Snake Charmer slot is your typical NextGen fare – with basic graphics and just the one bonus – but we find it weirdly addictive. Is it the mesmerising music that conjures up middle eastern medinas and souks? Or the hypnotic eyes of the sneaky snake during the Free Spins round?
