I think we’re all on a Sunquest aren’t we? Much more of the cold, windy weather that I seem to wake up to each day and I’ll forget what the sun looks like. This is another Microgaming release that has a bit of a basic look to it but is full of both entertainment and winning opportunities.
This is one of those Microgaming slot releases that has a real retro feel to it. If you used to play those games that lived up to the title of fruit machines. If you ate the subjects of the symbols in this game you’d definitely have a healthy diet.
Sunquest has five reels and three rows of symbols, that’s a bit different from the 3×3 grids that dominated in the old days. Also a bit different is the number of paylines the game has. There are nine, when back in the day most simply had the one.
The symbols in the game are fairly large and there’s no backdrop here. We do get a ton of fruit though with strawberries, lemons, oranges, watermelons and cherries. Other symbols that older players will be familiar with are the bells, gold bars,7s, diamonds and a big golden coin.
The five fruit symbols are the higher value ones and they can get you winning combinations if you can just get two in a row. Five of the golden coins on an active payline pays 10,000x your line bet so that’s definitely something to look out for.
The game also had a wild symbol and if you’ve been wondering where the sun is in this game, here it is. The wild has a gorgeous view of yachts and palm trees as the sun sets in the background. This doesn’t appear on all of the symbols and can only be seen on the second, third and fourth reels. It substitutes for all the other symbols to get you some wins but not the scatter. That’s the multi-coloured symbol and if you can get at least three of these anywhere on the reels you get a payout of
For all the information about how the game runs and the value of each winning combination, check out the paytable. That’s packed with really helpful information about how to play the game. Before risking your real cash balance have some free games to see the game in action.
Here’s a bit of disappointing news as there’s no bonus game contained in this slot. That really is a bit of a throwback to the old days.
Don’t let the fact that there’s no bonus game put you off playing this slot. Back in the day there were plenty of games that didn’t have bonus games but we all kept on playing them. The emphasis here is on spinning the reels and getting winning combinations. The fact that the higher value symbols pay out for just two in a row is a bonus in itself though you’ll find yourself getting a lot of small wins.
