Age of Discovery Slots Review
If you want to play a slots game where it’s clearly evident a lot of time has been put into it, then go for ‘Age of Discovery.’ This comes from Microgaming and they’ve been coming up with great games year-in and year-out.
This games takes us back a few centuries when great explorers sailed the seas and discovered new lands, sometimes intended ones and others that weren’t. The graphics in this game are really impressive and the symbols are all related to the theme of the game. There may be plenty of quiet times while you’re sailing around the world but there’s no sign of any playing cards here.
‘Age of Discovery’ is a five reel and 25 payline game. It’s set on what looks like an old ship and the sound affects have the sound of the waves. The minimum cost of playing the game is £0.25 and the maximum £125. That’s a fair amount to gamble on a single spin so only do so if you can afford to lose it. You’ll definitely be able to afford to do so if winning the £30,000 jackpot by getting five gold coins. Until that happens take a look through the paytable and have some free games to get used to playing this slot.
The symbols include sea shells, sea birds, exotic fruit such as figs,avocados, bananas and pomegranates, gold coins, a compass, a sea monster that isn’t quite as scary as you might think, the sailing ship and a map.
The gold coins are the wild symbol in ‘Age of Discovery’ and substitute for all other symbols apart from the scatters. An added piece of good news is that the wild will give you a multiplier if forming a winning combination.
There are two scatter symbols in this game, the sea monster and the compass. With the sea monster symbol, three or more of them anywhere on the reels can complete some handy winning combinations. Those wins get multiplied. More about the compass symbol in a moment.
This game can be played on your PC without any need of a download. It can also be enjoyed anytime, anywhere on your mobile devices. All the control buttons are down at the bottom of the screen though there’s no autoplay feature in ‘Age of Discovery.’
Three compass scatter symbols result in a second screen game coming up as you enter the Treasure Bonus Feature. There’s a map of some territories that are yet to be explored. You need to select one of the squares on the map in order to reveal a secret prize. Just keep on making your selections until the skull and crossbones appears. That ends the bonus game and it’s back to regular play once you’ve collected all the wins you’ve earned.
This is another great slots game from Micrograming and there are plenty of chances to get some good wins here. The theme is fully adhered to and is an entertaining one. The Treasure Bonus feature is a profitable one and it’s good to see more than one scatter symbol being included in the game.
