Gambling-themed slots are often either a hit or a miss, but this Playtech title from April 2019 is definitely worth checking out. The center of attention in this 80-line slot with an unorthodox reel grid is Roxy, a charming blonde in a tight red dress that seduces players into giving the reels a spin or two. Stylistically, the game successfully captures the razzle and dazzle of Las Vegas’ most magnificent landbased casinos.
Here you can put your luck to a test and see whether you will be able to trigger the Roxy Respins feature or the lucrative Casino Charms bonus game. These two features give your odds of spinning your way into monster wins a rather decent boost. Betting starts at $0.20 per spin only so that everyone can afford to try the game.

Symbols and Winning Combinations of Casino Charms Slot
First things first, let’s discuss the mechanics and the visual presentation of Casino Charms. The game bursts with vivid colors as its reels are set against a background that takes players to a city skyline. Most likely this is Las Vegas you are looking at. It creates a sensation of inclusiveness, leaving spinners with the impression they are indeed part of Sin City’s high life.
As for the reel grid, it deviates from the conventional 5×3 format. Casino Charms plays on 6 vertical rows. Reel 1 displays only 3 symbols but this number escalates with each successive vertical row to reach 7 icons on reels 5 and 6. It makes sense only casino-related symbols have been chosen for both the low- and high-paying icons in this gambling-themed slot.
Matches should occur on the paylines from left to right to create paying combinations. Respectively, the gains are multiplied by the line stake according to the values listed in the paytable. The most lucrative icon in Casino Charms is Roxy in her entire glory holding a pair of cards in her hand. She pays a maximum of 200x the line stake for six symbols and a minimum of 4x the bet for two matches.
All other symbols require a combination of at least three-of-a-kind to yield payouts. The blue diamond, the green triple sevens, and the dice pair all pay top prizes of 160x the bet per winning line. Players can win as much as 100x for six-of-a-kind with the casino chips, the quads with aces, and the bar icon. The red hearts, green diamonds, blue spades, and purple clubs can earn you 4x, 8x, 40x, or 80x your line stake, based on the number of matches they produce.
Bonus Features of Casino Charms Slot
No modern video slot can do without a substitution symbol so it only makes sense one is also included in Casino Charms. It simply reads “WILD” in orange and pink ombre font and can take the place of all symbols with the exception of the scatter that activates the bonus. One thing we found slightly disappointing is that the wild can only appear on reels 2 through 6, which diminishes your odds of winning, albeit very slightly.
Roxy’s symbol is special because it can appear stacked on the first reel. When this happens, the lovely blonde will reward you with two free respins during which her symbol and the wild will lock to the reel grids they land on. The Casino Charms Bonus is perhaps of greater interest. It gets triggered by bonus symbols appearing on the first, second, and third reels at the same time.
The reel grid will give way to a new screen with a wheel whose sections contain different bonuses, including 25 free games, 15 free rounds with stacked wilds on the fifth and sixth reels, 12 or 10 free spins, and a mega respin with up to 8 bonus rounds. Keep in mind the game is designed in such a way so that the respin feature with Roxy occurs more regularly during the Casino Charm Bonus.
Best of all, you can retrigger the free spins as many times as you want (or can). There is no ceiling on the maximum of retriggers, which can result in massive windfalls during the free spins feature.
Casino Charms is a charming slot indeed, especially graphically. Our reviewers reported their interest was further piqued by the unorthodox look and design of the reel grid. The special features are not overly complicated, which might appeal to players who are still new to spinning the reels. The wheel-based game adds a lot to the appeal of Casino Charms and renders the gameplay all the more exciting.
