The Snake Charmer is a charming dice slot game that takes place in India. This game has a very lucrative bonus that can be earned through its scatters: the snake will become hypnotized, which turns whole reels to wilds at random, 10 free spins long!
The Snake Charmer is a dice slot game: it is played on 5 reels, that each contain 3 dice. These reels can be spun, after which they show a combination. Combinations of identical symbols along preset paylines pay out a cash prize that depends on the value of the symbol. To check the value of each symbol, you can see the help file in the menu that is accessed through the cog button in the upper right corner or by holding down the left mouse button in the game field.
The Snake Charmer allows stakes as low as €0.01 and as high as €250. To set a stake, go to the menu and enter the stake options (row of coins). There are 2 bars you can change: the paylines bar and the base stake bar. Both can be adjusted to fit your preferences by dragging the point along the bar or by clicking on a preferred position on the bar.
The number of paylines is set at 25 by default. It can be changed to any number from 1 to 25, but it is not advised to play at low paylines, as you’ll have less chances of winning. While you can choose the number of active paylines, you can’t choose which paylines to play. The paylines positions are indicated on the left and right sides of the reels on the game field.
The base stake is set at €0.03 when you start the game. This can be changed to the following: €0.01, €0.02, €0.03, €0.04, €0.05, €0.10, €0.20, €0.25, €0.50, €1, €2, €2.50, €5, and €10. Your total stake is made up of this base stake and your selected number of winning lines. For example: if you set your base stake at €0.04 and you play at all 25 lines, your stake per spin is €1.
The Snake Charmer has 2 special symbols: wilds and scatters.
Wilds are symbols that can take the place of any other symbol. This way they can be used to substitute for other symbols that are missing in order to form a combination along a payline. The same wild can represent multiple symbols at the same time. This bonus symbol occurs randomly on all 5 reels.
Scatters are symbols that pay out if there are 2 or more, no matter where they are on the game field. These do not have to occur along a payline. If you get 3 or more of these scatters, you trigger the bonus round of 10 free games on top of their own prize. Scatters appear at random on all 5 reels.
The bonus game, triggered by the occurrence of at least 3 scatters, consists of 10 free spins at the stake at which you were playing when you won them. During these 10 free spins, the hypnotised snake will fill one or multiple reels entirely. This can happen on all reels at random. Free spins can’t be retriggered.
