Lucky Lady’s Charm is another bestseller in Novomatic’s Novoline slots series. Originally a land-based slot game, it was recently launched in an online version called “Deluxe”. The only substantive difference between the two versions is the number of paylines. Other than that, the original Lucky Lady’s Charm and the online Deluxe version are exactly the same in terms of play-game and rules.

Lucky Lady’s Charm Game Description
Lucky Lady’s Charm is a 5 reel slot game. The game was originally launched with 9 paylines, but an additional payline was added to the online Deluxe version.
The theme is based on the mysterious world of fortune telling. The symbols include the Lucky Lady and her various lucky charms and fortune telling paraphernalia, such as the Crystal Ball, Horseshoe, Four-Leaved-Clover and Ladybug, as well as the usual slot symbols of A, K, J, Q, 9 and 10. As other Novoline Deluxe versions, the visual and audio effects of the Lucky Lady’s Charm are state of the art and represent a significant improvement over the original version.
The aim of the Lucky Lady’s Charm game is to complete a combination of between two to five identical symbols appearing across the reals. With most symbols, you need at least three to create a winning combination, while with others, like the Lucky Lady or the Ladybug symbols, only two identical symbols are enough to trigger a win.
The Lucky Lady is a Wild symbol (same as the Joker in card games), and can substitute for all other symbols to create a winning combination.
As a rule, the symbols must appear from left to right, on adjacent reals. However, there is one exception to this rule – the Scatter symbol. The Scatter symbol doesn’t have to appear on adjacent reels to trigger a win, and can appear anywhere on the screen. In addition, three or more of these symbols scattered anywhere on the reels win the player a special bonus, usually bonus rounds (or “free spins”). In the Novoline Lucky Lady’s Charm game, the Crystal ball is the Scatter symbol.
Importantly, the Scatter is the only symbol that cannot be substituted by a Wild symbol.
Lucky Lady’s Charm – Paylines and Bets
In the Lucky Lady’s Charm Deluxe version, the paylines are not fixed, and the player can select to activate up to 10 paylines.
In addition, the bet per line can be adjusted at any time during the game. As the game starts, the minimum bet is shown on the bottom of the screen. The player can then use the + / – buttons to adjust the bet.
The display on the bottom of the screen will also show the total bet per spin, calculated as the bet per line x the number of lines activated (for example, if the bet per line is €0.05, and 5 paylines are activated, the total bet for the spin will be €0.25).
Lucky Lady’s Charm – Bonus Features
Bonus Rounds – same as in the Dolphin’s Pearl Novoline game, in this game, three Crystal Ball Scatter symbols anywhere on the screen will award the player 15 bonus rounds. The Crystal Balls keep appearing during bonus rounds and re-triggering the free games bonus feature, so, in principal, there is no limit to the number of bonus rounds the player can win. The lines and bets in the bonus rounds are the same as in the main game.
Double and Triple multipliers – the Wild Lucky Lady symbol also functions as a double multiplier. Get one or more Lucky Lady symbols in a winning combination – and your winnings will be doubled. Not only that, during a bonus rounds, prizes are tripled (!).
Gamble feature – like other games in the Novoline series, Lucky Lady’s Charm offers the fun “Gamble” feature. With this feature, the player can increase his winnings even further by betting on the color (red or black) of the next card drawn from a virtual deck of cards. With this feature, the player has a 50% chance to double (or loose) his winnings in the last spin.
After every winning spin, the “Gamble” button will flash. If clicked on, the Gamble screen will appear. The player has the opportunity to choose a “red” or “black card”. The last six cards that were drawn are displayed on the top of the screen. As long as you win you gamble, you can continue to play the Gamble feature 5 times in a row, or you can click the “Collect” button at any time and collect your winnings. The screen will automatically go back to the regular game if the wrong card is chosen.
Novoline Lucky Lady’s Charm – Payout
The “Paytable” displays all winning possibilities and the value of each winning combination for the currently selected bet and number of lines. For example, if all 10 paylines are activated at the maximum bet, five Cristal Ball symbols are worth €200, while 5 Lucky Lady symbols will win the player the considerable sum of €360. The player can consult the Paytable screen on every stage of the game.
Like all slots, the Novoline slots are programed to pay out over the long run a certain percentage of money put into them. The Lucky Lady’s Charm slots have the average return to player (RTP) percentage of 97.10%, the highest of all Novoline slot games.
