Big Floaty Thing
At some point in history, someone realised that standing on dry land was way too easy. So, in order to shake things up a bit, they thought it would be a good idea to create a big thing that could float on water and carry things around – sounds pretty clever, right. These big floaty things were called boats (and sometimes the big ones were called ships) and they were one of the most important things in the world when it came to making money and fighting against people from countries that you didn’t like. That was until someone realised that floating on water was just as boring as standing on land so they decided to make a big thing that could fly in the sky. Amazing, huh? This free Age of Privateers slot machine pays homage to the history of the maritime business with 5 reels that reveal the kinds of things that you might expect to find on board a sailing vessel back in the day. We’re talking about a pair of keen sailors, a compass for navigation, plenty of gold coins and a barrel full of ‘Ron’. Nope, this doesn’t mean that Ron Weasley is inside the barrel, but it does mean that this ship is stocked up on every sailor’s favourite drink: rum!
Set Sail for These Wins
You don’t need to be a nautical genius to sail this slot machine into potentially lucrative waters. In fact, with a fairly medium volatility level as well as 50 paylines to play with, we are sure that punters won’t have to spin the reels for too long before they catch a win or two. The trick, of course, is navigating your way towards the bigger prize returns by lining up five of the high-paying symbols. Five lady sailors, for example, will return a line bet multiplier of 200x while five man sailors will give a prize worth 500x. The most lucrative wins in the base game are actually awarded when five wheel scatter symbols fall on the reels in any position to multiply the total bet value by 100x. So, if you were to wager a max bet of 10,000 credits, you will be in for prizes worth 1,000,000 coins. The lowest bet on offer is 50.00 credits but you can also play for free to test out the game before wagering real cash.
We’re Going to Need a Bigger Boat
If you thought that this game had some big prizes on offer in the normal game, then wait until you hear about the potential returns on offer in the bonus side of the slot. That is because gamblers are able to activate a round of 12 free spins by finding three or more scatters on the reels, during which all normal prizes will be multiplied by x4. What’s more, should players come across a full-house of captain symbols, they will win a share of the game’s progressive jackpot kitty according to the size of the total bet.
Humans have always had a fascination with the sea, and the mysteries of the deeps remain some of the great unknowns in the natural world. So, it’s no wonder that there are plenty of slot machines online with a maritime theme, with more recent releases such as Age of Discovery by Microgaming, 1429: Uncharted Seas by Thunderkick and 1421: Voyages of Zheng He by Spielo software.
Rule the Waves
Not everyone in the world has a calling for the life on the waves, although there is always something exciting and romantic about the vast oceans which cover two thirds of the planet. This slot machine might not be the most stunning of slots online with no 3D graphics to show off the wonders of the water, but it sure makes up for it when it comes to the winning potential. Plus, players can give the mobile-optimised slot a spin on Android and iOS devices.
