The original Battleship board game pitted two players against each other in an effort to get the better of their opponent by destroying their fleet of ships. The game symbols are inspired by such actions, with the likes of carriers, destroyers, frigates and submarines represented on the reels alongside the traditional IGT symbols that incorporate playing cards from 9 through to Ace.
Gameplay and Prizes
Players can place up to five coins on each of the 25 win lines, and with a maximum coin value of $1 each, the wagering permutations are massive. Naturally, players here at Mr Gamez can enjoy all manner of permutations absolutely free, playing the free Battleship slot for the same amounts that they would traditionally use as an online slot, or play like a high roller in an attempt to win the maximum 5,000 coin pay-out and, in turn, making it worth as much as possible.
Features and Bonuses
The free Battleship slot includes all of the slot features that players have come to expect from their favourite IGT slots. The Battleship logo acts as a wild card while also stacking in blocks of three in order to squeeze the most potential from all 25 win lines. It is joined by the Battleship symbol itself, which acts as a scatter and provides access to the Pick Your Battle feature. This is the standout feature of the game and is based faithfully on the original board game that has been such a classic over the years. Three or more Battleships activate the feature, and players can choose to take on one of two further games, Winning Encounter or Sink the Fleet. In the former, the player wins free spins with all 25 win lines active, regardless of how many lines are in play on the normal game. New torpedo symbols appear on the last two reels and attack both the player’s and enemy’s submarines, with damage to the enemy ship applying multipliers to winning spins. When either ship is struck six times, it is sunk and the game ends, although unfortunate players that win nothing during the free spins receive a 100 coin consolation prize.
The other bonus round, Sink the Fleet, is just like the board game. The player pits their wits against the slot to sink their ships and winning prizes for successful hits. This is the most enjoyable aspect of the slot and is well worth trying on the free version of Battleship here at Mr Gamez.
