Sharky Slot Review
The Sharky slot sees Novomatic once again turning to perhaps their most successful overall theme ever; the high seas. While perhaps not as immersive as other ocean themed slots from the company, and thus not being ideal for those looking for an authentic seafaring experience, the theme and graphics are the perfect foil for a game on which the gameplay is the defining feature.
Players that choose to play Sharky for free here at Mr Gamez can be ensured not only of quick, fluid gameplay but also a raft of features and bonuses plus one of the biggest standalone jackpots ever seen on a Novomatic slots game.
While the Sharky slot from Novomatic certainly does fall into the category of sea themed slots, it is a loose association. The header bar on the game itself contains the game’s name as always, and is joined in the space by a shark picture. The reels themselves incorporate a range of pirate related symbols, including the Parrot, Crossed Cutlasses, Treasure Chests and Pirate Ships, although the Shark itself makes no further appearances in gameplay until the bonus round.
Gameplay and Prizes
Gameplay on Sharky is typical Novomatic fare, with players having access to a Gamble game, auotplay feature and full control over their use of win lines and other options. As a fairly simple slot game, the number of win lines is limited to nine, but players can adjust their coin values to bring the game into line with their prize expectations and virtual budget. Of course, each of these options applies whether playing for real money or playing for fun (and for free) here at Mr Gamez.
While everything about Sharky up to this point has been somewhat run of the mill, it is the prizes on offer where the game stands out. The Ship’s Captain makes regular appearances but, as with most symbols, his appearances are never welcomed as much as when there are five in a row. Spinning in the correct combination rewards players with an outstanding 25,000 coin prize. If you are the type of player that bases their game choice on where they can see the biggest numbers heading into their balance certainly need to take notice of Sharky for this reason alone.
Features and Bonuses
As if the huge prize on offer on Sharky was not enough, players can also be entertained for hours on end by the themed bonus features incorporated into the game. The typical wild card is represented by the aforementioned Captain symbol – not only does he award the largest prize on the slot, but he can also fill in the gaps in winning combinations that are just a single symbol short. He can fill in for every other symbol in the game except the scatters, which are depicted by the Beach and Ship symbols.
Spinning in both the Beach and Ship symbols results in the player being taken to the free spins bonus round. Players start the round with ten free spins and have an additional wild card added to the first reel in the form of the Rower symbol. He proceeds across the reels with each spin, stopping only when the Shark itself makes a reappearance and halts his progress.
Players that enjoy big prizes and free spins rounds with a twist may well find the Sharky slot by Novomatic to be the perfect game for them. It is, in essence, a basic game with a simple theme, but the action itself is a lot of fun.
