First up on our agenda today is that gorgeous wooden matrix that is Masters of the Sky; we’ve seen many clever designs in our time, but this feels so authentic and tangible. The graphics are cartoony in their depth, and so that sense of realism shouldn’t be present, yet Booming Games have managed to make the impossible possible.
Wood is virtually all you can see, for its structure dominates the screen in a big way, boxing the images in and emphasising that Nordic texture of the game. It’s a well rounded interface, for it doesn’t overwhelm but neither does it shrink away from the spotlight; it’s in perfect harmony. We’d go as far as to say that it’s one of the brand’s most successful aesthetics, and they’ve got quite a few to their name.
What’s the Weather?
Once again we’re singing the praises of this brand as they’ve included another impressive gamble feature. In this case you have a wooden window to look out of, where you need to guess what the weather will be like, rainy or filled with sunshine. You may ask what on earth this has to do with the theme of the title, but remember that seafarers need the weather on their side at all times.
The presentation is second to none here, and you’ll watch as the image in the window flashes from rain to sun, before landing on the winning image. If you’re successful in your guess, you get to play again. However, if not, you have to deal with the shame of returning to the base game. We found that the volatility here wasn’t too steep, but there was still a decent level of challenge here. Sadly, however, we can’t inform you just how much challenge you’re up against, as the RTP wasn’t available at the time of writing this review.
Wrap up Warm
In terms of uncovering an alternative title as stimulating as this one, it isn’t hard to find the next real cash slot for you; Jason and the Golden Fleece is what we’d suggest. Developed by Microgaming, it comes from a brand that understands its audience and their needs well. It comes in a 5-reel grid similar to Masters of the Sky, only the graphics of Microgaming’s example is less than exciting. It looks dated.
Not to worry though, for you have a cheap betting range of 0.25 coins, and a range of features to play through. The sheer number of bonuses inside the game is bordering on obscene, so we’d definitely say to have a punt if you need lots of variance. Jason and his crew aren’t playing around with what they can deliver here.
Masters of the Sky is a well thought out and well executed online game; it has depth and features, but not so many that they bombard you. We think Booming Games have done a sterling job here, though we’d wager that this won’t be a title that holds your interest for too long. This is primarily a filler, and so for more advanced gaming we’d suggest a bigger and more generous paying slot machine.
