There are a lot of online slots based on different holidays and special times of year, and you can tell by the title of the Charms and Witches slot that it's based around Halloween. This game is produced by Side City Studios and available through the NYX Gaming Group, and it has a scary visual style full of high-quality, 2D graphics. The reels themselves stand in the entrance to a spooky pumpkin patch, and this game has a strong feature set as well, which lends itself to an action-packed style of play.

Format and Layout

The standard five-reel, three-row format is used for this game. You'll also find that it has 25 paylines and a wide range of betting options that will help you to find the exact size of wager that works for you and your bankroll. These 25 paylines are static and locked into place, so all of your bet sizes will be based on multiples of 25. With coins that start at $0.01, the minimum bet size is a very affordable $0.25 per spin. The largest coins are $20 for a $500 top bet size for the highest of high rollers. Plenty of options everywhere in between are offered as well, and this means you can find the bet size that works for you no matter what stakes you play at.

Wild Multiplier Symbols

One of the main symbols that you'll want to keep a close eye on is the wild in this game. It's a green symbol with gold trim and the word "wild" written across it in a golden font. Five of a kind of this wild gets you the top regular win of 3,000x. The prize of 750x for four of a kind isn't bad either. You can also win 100x and 10x for three of a kind and two of a kind, respectively. These wilds obviously show up on every reel, but they contribute a lot of value to the game by helping you to get a lot of extra wins. They do not substitute for the scatter symbols, however.

Spooky Bats Bonus Feature

Bats are an important symbol in any Halloween-themed piece of media, and they're no exception here. On random spins, a swarm of bats will cover the reels and give you chances to extra random wilds. This means opportunities for some very serious multi-line wins, and it also makes it easier to hit bigger winning combinations as well. These bats have a random chance to appear during the regular game, but they show up more often during the free spins feature.

Free Spins Bonus Round and Scatters

Speaking of bats, there is also a bat symbol, and it's the scatter. Payouts for the scatter are multiplied by the entire bet size instead of the line bet wagers, so you'll get 100x for five of a kind, which is just like a 2,500x line bet payout. Four gets you 20x, and three will pay 5x. You can even win a 1x prize for just two of this scatter anywhere on the reels.

When you get three or more scatters, however, you'll trigger a set of free spins. You'll be given 10 free spins, but all of the payouts are given a 2x multiplier in the process, which drives the available prizes up quite a bit.

Pick Me Bonus Feature

There's a green potion symbol that acts as a scatter to activate the Pick Me Bonus Feature. It shows up on the middle three reels only, and when they all appear, you get a chance to pick from them for extra prizes. You can even end up picking all three, which means even bigger wins. On top of that, if there's a wild on the screen when the three pick me symbols show up, your prizes for the feature are doubled.

Important Wins and Payouts

Five of the girl in the moonlight gets you a win of 500x, and five of the black rat is worth 250x. You can win 200x for five of the raven with the key in its beak or five of the frog. Wins of 150x are yours for five-of-a-kind combinations of the cauldron or scarecrow, and the black cat and witch's hat earns 100x. Prizes of 100x can also be had for five of the black witch's shoe or the brooms. We should point out that the rat and girl in the moonlight pay for two of a kind or more.


Side City Studios did a solid job with the Charms and Witches slot. From a visual standpoint, it's solid, but it doesn't really stand out all that much. However, the gameplay is what really makes this particular title with several features and a balanced pay table that still gives you opportunities for pretty sizable payouts. Overall, it might not appeal to all players, but it's still a solid game with good gameplay values.
