Snake Charmer Slot
NextGen Gaming’s The Snake Charmer is set in the hustle and bustle of an Indian bazaar, hosted by a pipe playing hypnotic snake charmer.
This is a slot game that is definitely tongue-in-cheek. The background to play is a warm evening in India with the reels set against the Taj Mahal. Atop the reels, the snake charmer precariously snoozes; but there are dangerous snakes lurking.
The action takes place in a functional. Underneath the reels are five lidded baskets containing the dangerous, goofy (hypnotised) cobra snakes that need to be charmed.
The soundtrack sounds a bit 1970s Curry House, but it sets the scene.
Snake Charmer Slot Game Play
The Snake Charmer slot is a five reel, 3 row and 25 pay-lines game.
The snake charmer’s kit makes up the high value game icons including a charming pipe, the snake basket, a decorated elephant and a long-braided dancing girl. The lower value icons are the standard 9 through Ace of the card pack.
The Snake Charmer’s Wild is our slippery friend the cobra (land 5 in a line and earn a 5,000 coin pay out) and the game’s Scatter is the snake charmer who gets the main bonus feature under way.
If you can land 3 or more of the Scatters then you will get 10 free spins, but these can’t be re-triggered. If you’re lucky you might land the Wild which expands rising out of the basket .
For those of you who like your extras, there’s a Gamble feature that you can activate after a winning combo. By guessing the colour or suite of an unturned playing card you can double or even quadruple your winnings- but remember, this works both ways so if you guess wrong, you will lose the spin win. You’ll have five chances to gamble in this feature.
The Snake Charmer slot is a happy-go-lucky Indian themed slot game which is all good fun. It is not exactly loaded with bonus extras but does enough for some traditional entertainment.
