Fruity and Nautical Symbols
The symbols in this game are a mixture of fruits and those related to a sea voyage. It’s not the usual apples and cherries that older slot fans will have grown up with, this is the age of discovery remember, so we have newly found treats such as figs, bananas, pomegranates and avocados. More a salad in a posh restaurant really. There’s also some sea shells, sea birds, a compass, gold coins, a sailing ship of course and a map. We even get to see a not very scary sea serpent.
Go Wild with the Gold Coins
The Gold coins are the wild symbol in ‘Age of Discovery’ meaning they substitute for all the other symbols in the game aside from the scatters symbols (more about those in a moment). This means the wild can help you get some winning lines that you might not otherwise have had. Another reason for liking them is the fact that when a wild causes a winning payline it
There are two scatter symbols here, that not so scary sea serpent and the compass that will point you in the right way of some good wins. Three or more of the sea serpent scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will win you 5x your coin stake and a full house of five pays 80x. The jackpot in this game is €30,000 if you are extremely lucky enough to be able to get five of the gold coins on an active payline.
This game can be played on your PC and your mobile devices so you can play it whenever and wherever you wish. Before you start playing, take a good look through the paytable.

Let the Compass Direct You Towards Bonus Riches
There’s just the one bonus game here and it’s the compass scatter symbol you need to keep an eye out for. Three of those anywhere on the screen takes you to a second screen game for the Treasure Bonus.
You see a map of the world and your simple task is to click on the X’s. They reveal cash amounts and you just keep on going until the skull and crossbones is revealed and that ends the bonus game, well nearly. The log book on the left hand side of the screen will open and reveal a final bonus. Then it’s time to collect your winnings. I found this to crop up a fair bit, the winnings aren’t always great but it all counts doesn’t it.
Another impressive slot from Microgaming. Lots of chances to get some good wins here and the Treasure Bonus game can be a profitable one, especially if playing at a high stake to start with. The theme is an interesting one and the soundtrack won’t drive you mad unless you suffer from seasickness, it can be muted though. No Autoplay feature but two scatters is helpful, definitely recommended.
