We’re back on the Seven Seas again for yet another aquatic themed game. With so many slot games having this theme it’s important for Microgaming to try and come up with something a little bit different and I think that’s what they have managed to do.
At the top of the screen we see the pirate ship in all its glory with its massive sails as it travels on the sea. It looks great and the rest of the game follows suit. The game doesn’t go down the comedic route that a lot of games with this theme have. There’s a more serious mood to this game rather than the jolly pirate ones we often see.
‘Sovereign of the Seven Seas’ has five reels and forty paylines on its three rows of symbols. Those forty paylines aren’t fixed so you can play with just one if you want too. The cost of playing the game ranges from £0.01 to £400 so ideal for those just wanting some fun and others looking to get some big wins.
The symbols include a ship’s compass, the captain of the ship, a chest full of gold coins and a bell. We also get the nine to Ace playing card symbols which is one or two too many I reckon. The wild symbol is the ship’s figurehead and this can substitute for other symbols to get some good winning combinations. It can help you even more as it’s an expanding wild both in the base and free spins round. There’s also the canon which is the scatter and helps get you into the bonus game.
All the information you need to know about the game is in the helpful paytable. Read that and then have some free games so you can see just how the game is played.
At least three of the canon scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will get you some free spins. There are three barrels that come up and you have to decide what you want to play with. It can either be 20 free spins with wins doubled, just the 15 free spins but a 3x multiplier and ten free spins with wins quadrupled. The middle option looks best.
Again the wild is able to expand on the second, third and fourth reels and that really helps get you some good wins.
The game also has a gamble feature. This is available when you get a win but you can just ignore it if you want. If you do accept the gamble then it’s the usual card game. Guess the colour of the next card to double your win and the suit to quadruple it. Just be careful with this as one wrong guess loses you all your money.
This is an entertaining voyage on the seven seas. It has a good look to it and the soundtrack won’t drive you round the bend like some do. The bonus game is a good one and can bring about some good wins. Be careful with the gamble feature though, you’re here to win prizes not lose them.
