I have always found it a bit odd that with all these amazing slots coming out all the time, I'm still drawn to games like Novomatic's Book Of Ra, Katana and Lucky Lady's Charm slots which are relatively old-school by comparison. I'm sure it's because I have played them for longer at land-based casinos and therefore feel more affinity towards them but even online, I hone in on these games a lot.
One of the appealing things to me about games like Lucky Lady's Charm (Deluxe) is the volatility factor but be warned, this won't suit everyone! If you know Novomatic games then you will probably already be aware that they are generally pretty tight most of the time but have the potential to whack out a massive payback every now and again. This means they are "high volatility" games and to be honest, while frustrating at times, they are much more my type of slot.
Playing online doesn't necessarily mean games like Lucky Lady's Charm are any less volatile but it does generally mean a better long term theoretical return to player ("RTP"). In the case of the Lucky lady's Charm slots, Novomatic have set the online version to a pretty generous 97.1% which compares favourably, not only to the land-based Super Gaminator machine versions but to other online slots in general.
To give you an idea, the game packs that Novomatic release to land-based casinos come with RTP's set in "bands" covering 2% ranges: 90-92%, 92-94% and 94-96%. The game packs with the Lucky Ladys Charm slots will fall into those bands and each slot on those machines will do likewise. There are odd exceptions but as far as Lucky Ladys Charm goes, 96% is the best you can hope for in land-based from the documentation I've seen. Online slots in general will fall between 92 and 98% so again you can see that Lucky Lady's Charm is at the top end of those.
Leaving paybacks percentages aside, the online version of the Lucky Ladys Charm slot is identical to the land-based versions. The typical Novomatic sounds, the graphics and gameplay with 15 free spins at 3x are all there and frequent re-triggers of the feature are one of its defining touches. You won't generally find Novomatic games at many online casinos but those that do are at least reputable.
As you may already know, there are several other Novomatic slots that are very similar in gameplay to the Lucky Ladys Charm slot although not all are available to play online yet. There is also - confusingly - another slot called Lucky Ladies 88 which is nothing to do with Novomatic or indeed bears little resemblance to this game either and it's not nearly as good in my opinion.
