Legend of The High Seas Slots
Legend of the High Seas is pirate themed fun for the whole family. Well, maybe not the whole family, but mom, dad, as well as grandma and grandpa would enjoy this swashbuckling tail of the seven seas.This enthralling release is by the experts at Realtime Gaming, who never disappoint. In all honestly, as a slots expert I've played a lot of pirate based games in my day. It's good to pick a familiar theme knowing many players will flock to it, but if the software developer doesn't truly offer something special and extra for players to enjoy, they risk their game being lost in the shuffle and forgotten. That's why this game made sure to stand out in its own special way
Graphic wise, this game could have gone a few different directions. Given the wild symbol is a skeleton pirate, I almost expected the game to be a little spookier, and more gritty graphic wise. Instead, they stuck with a familiar, cartoonish style that many other pirate games feature. Something about it is very endearing though. It's familiar and it's not spooky enough that you can only play this game during October, so I appreciated that aspect.
Theme and Basics
The game is set against the dock of a ship as it sails the deep blue seas. In the backdrop you can see a warring ship riding up nearby, as well as the endless ocean. It definitely did its best to portray a classic pirate themed slot and they succeeded. The graphics are sharp without being overbearing or too cluttered. They effortlessly combine numerous different graphics into one cohesive game.The animations are smooth and easy to look at.
The top paying symbol is the skeleton pirate.While he sounds a bit frightening, he's pretty cute and pays out 10,000 credits for a match of five. Plus, he's also the wild symbol so he'll substitute for other symbols to form a winning combination. He'll also double your payout if he helps form a win, so in general, the skeleton pirate is your friend! When it comes to normal symbols, the top paying symbol is the parrot with a pirate hat, and he awards 1000 credits for a match of five. The other highest paying symbol is the treasure chest, which pays out 1000 credits as well. The hook for a hand pays out 300 credits and the map pays out 300 credits for five as well. The low paying symbols are the letters and number symbols, which are supposed to represent playing cards.
Special Features and Gameplay
The core of the game is fundamental and exciting on its own, but the special features take everything up a notch. They even offer a progressive jackpot. Apart from all the benefits the wild symbol offers I already mentioned, the scatter symbol is another beneficial symbol. If you land three or more of the scatter symbol, you'll trigger the Free Games features. The free game feature is activated when you land three or more scatter symbols on the game board. If this happens, you'll trigger fifteen free games. When the feature is activated, all of your winnings will be tripled and can also be retriggered if you happen to land more scatter. The progressive jackpot is triggered at random, and can award you with a huge sum of money. Overall, there is tons of winning potential in this pirate themed game, so why not take advantage of it and have a blast at the same time?
