You can love and you can hate pirates. As long as you see them from the screen, they’re fun. When you see them in real (yes, they still exist), well then you know you’re in big trouble! Pirates are usually in trouble themselves as well and that’s what makes pirates films en series so much fun. No wonder NetEnt brings a new bunch of pirates to the reels again next week with the Rage of the Seas™ video slot.
And what is a pirate video slot adventure without a Galleon ship, canons, a little monkey, a parrot, a giant squid and of course, pirates!!! Perfect for the wannabee pirates among us or those that love a good high volatility NetEnt slot. Hook’s Heroes™ and Ghost Pirates™ are getting serious competition!
Ahoy, Me Hearties!
With the launch day of the Rage of the Seas™ video slot getting closer, you’re only 10 days from meeting a new bunch of NetEnt characters. The cutest version is the cheeky monkey who likes to climb up the reels to open windows.
When a window is opened, a door is closed, right? Or something like that, but not in the Rage of the Seas™ video slot. When the little one climbs up, doors open, for sure. Doors to better winnings which you find out as well when watching the above preview video.
Not officially called Captain Blackbeard, I think he’s a typical one. They’re so typical, those pirates. Just like the captain often has a long rough beard, there’s always hanging a bold pirate around on a ship as well. This one even with a knife in his mouth. Aaaarrrrgggghhhh!
We know NetEnt is in favour of equality, trying to have 50% men and 50% woman in their offices. That’s probably why the two rough pirates are in the company of two female pirates.
Of course, a pirate can’t be missed while I’m surprised by the hammerhead shark! Mention a hammerhead shark to a diver, and they get all excited. It’s great to see this shark back on the reels! The finishing touch comes from the gunpowder and the anchor, the ship’s wheel and mysterious bottle.
Another typical addition to the reels is the Wild symbol, represented by the giant squid. You see them in the pirate stories and you see them back in the Rage of the Seas™ video slot.
This all becomes available from the 17th September and just as great as its design is the gameplay in this upcoming new NetEnt slot.
Rage of the Seas™ video slot gameplay
The newest high volatile addition to the NetEnt Casinos will consist of 5 reels and 4 rows with half of them being expandable. The expansion is lead by the Boost symbol and that’s when the cheeky one comes around to open the windows.
Thanks to the opportunity to expand the reels to 4-7-7-7-4, the numbers of winning ways can go up from 1024 to 5488. More betways is a blessing on its own, but when in combination with one out of four slot features, true slot excitement becomes available.
Raise the sails and prepare to spin!
More about the Boost symbol
The Boost symbol can land on the reels 2,3 and 4. That’s how the 5 times 4 symbols can expand to become 4-7-7-7-4. When one reel expands, you end up with 1792 bet ways. 2 reels with 7 rows offer 3136 bet ways, and 3 reels with 7 rows gives you a whopping 5488 possible bet ways.
The Boost symbol shows the mischievous monkey that climbs up the reels. When the Boost symbol appears, the monkey opens 3 windows in order to reveal 3 more symbols.
While the reel expands to 7 rows, it also activates one of the four Feature Spins. That’s when the music in the Rage of the Seas™ video slot becomes alive too for the excitement to grow.
What are the feature spins?
Feature Spins are spins that offer a certain video slot feature during the number of spins given. They have a lot in common with free spins, except they’re not for free. You still pay a bet.
The Random features activated can be anything from Wilds to Reel Upgrades during 4 Feature Spins.
The Random Features:
- Stacked Wilds (can appear anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4 and cover from 1 position to 4 positions)
- Spreading Wild (can land anywhere on reels 2, 3, and 4 and sticks one or two Spreading Wilds onto the reels 2,3 or 4)
- x2 Multiplier
- Major Reel Upgrades (removes all anchor and barrel symbols)
- Minor Reel Upgrade (removes all anchor and barrel symbols)
Are there Free Spins in the Rage of the Seas™ video slot?
Aye, there are! You do pay a bet for each Feature spin, but as always, Free Spins will be free! Either three Boosted reels (3 Boost symbols) or 3 or more Scatters activate the Free Spins feature. You can activate up to 12 Free Spins:
3 Scatter symbols = 5 Free Spins
4 Scatter symbols = 8 Free Spins
5 Scatter symbols = 12 Free Spins
When 3 Boost symbols appear, the remaining Feature Spins turn into Free Spins. The Random features activated already remain activated during the Free Spins feature.
