If you want to play it risky, there is also a gamble feature. This is triggered after each winning combination. You can choose to gamble your winnings. It is based on a game of chance with cards. You can pick either the red or black card suit to double your winnings, or one of the four card suits to quadruple your winnings. Just remember that this is either a 50% or 75% chance of losing all your winnings so be careful! Also, you can gamble your winnings up to five times in a row which could lead to huge wins (or losses!).
The Snake Charmer bonus round is based on the scatter symbol. If you get three or more scatter symbols, you win 10 Snake Charmer free spins. This is a set number of free spins regardless of how many scatter symbols you score.
During the free spins, the wild symbol transforms into an expanding wild to fill the whole reel on which it appears on which improves your chances of winning. Aside from this, the standard paytable and rules apply. Also, you cannot trigger any additional free spins during the bonus rounds.
The number of paylines set at the time the free spins are triggered is also used during the bonus rounds.
The Snake Charmer RTP is set at 95.346%, which is just in line with the industry standard of online video slots. Also, this game is classed as a medium volatility slot. This means that it has more risk than low volatility games, but less than high volatility – it is a good balance. You can expect to win occasionally, and have some larger wins thrown in too – these are achieved mainly by the free spins.
