Are you now ready to get your sea legs? Well shiver your timbers and batten down the hatches because you are about to learn the ropes of this nautical-themed slot machine.
First thing you need to know is that there are 5 betting values for you to choose from. These are – 15, 30, 75, 150 and 300. For you to begin a spin, you just need to click one of these values, or simply press the “start” button and thar she blows, the reels will spin away until they stop of their own accord or you press “Stop”. You can also start and stop spins by pressing the space bar on your keyboard.
So, playing the game is easy enough and after you’ve had a few goes you’ll be feeling like a life-long sailor of the seven seas. But what exactly are you playing for? Well, there are 11 symbols in total, some of which are low value letter symbols and others which depict different objects and characters that you might find on any good maritime expedition.
There is a sextant (one of those nautical measuring device thingies) and a telescope, both of which have quite low values. There are also some human characters, including a keen looking explorer chap and a well-to-do looking lady, who looks like she’s hating every minute of being stuck on a boat. Then there is the captain himself – who is the most valuable of the lot.
There is also a wild card as depicted by a boat and a scatter symbol as depicted by a paradise desert island.
Fire up the Free Spins
Players of The Explorers will be given the opportunity to have some free spins if they line up 3 or more scatter cards. When this happens the player must choose from a selection diaries to determine the amount of free spins – ranging between 10 and 25 – and a multiplier (ranging between 1 and 5).
There is also a gamble game involved on this slot machine, which can be activated whenever the player wins less than 525 credits. This side game is as simple as choosing from red or black to guess the colour of a face down card. If the player guess right then their previous winning amount is doubled, if they guess wrong then the winning amount is thrown overboard.
Be There Treasure on This Slot Machine?
As with most EGT designed slot machines, The Explorers gives players the opportunity to participate in a randomly triggered bonus round. In this side game, there are 12 face down cards and 4 mystery jackpot amounts which are depicted by a different card suit; clubs being the lowest, followed by diamonds then hearts and finally with spades as the highest amount.
All the player has to do is choose 3 cards to turn over. If the suits all match then the jackpot bounty is released.
