Sail the Seven Seas for Scatters, Free Spins, Treasure Hunts and Mystery Map Re-spins!
Sails of Fortune comes to us from Relax Gaming. It’s a 5-reel, 3-row game with 243 to 7,776 ways to win, high volatility and an RTP of 96.15%. The graphics are really cool – they’re beautifully stylized with lots of detail, which makes them pop off the screen – and the theme music gives the game a perfectly jaunty atmosphere!
You’ll see the wooden reels perched on our pirate ship’s deck, along with rigging ropes and the great blue yonder. On the left is a treasure chest which is where you can buy Free Spins (more on that later).
The main symbols are of two pirates – a fearsome, red-bearded swashbuckler and a saucy minx of a she-pirate bedecked in purple. Other symbols come in the form of a message in a bottle, fish bones and an anchor-looking thing. The remainder is a heart, spade, club and diamond from a deck of cards.
Scatters take the form of a skeleton key (literally) and if you land 3 of ’em anywhere on the reels, you’ll be rewarded with 8 Free Spins. Additional Scatter will get you an additional Free Spin.
The Treasure Hunt Free Spins feature kicks off when you land 3 or more Scatters anywhere on the reels during the same spin. This will get you 8 Free Spins for the first 3 Scatters you land and you’ll get an additional Free Spin for each subsequent Scatter.
A cool feature is the Mystery Map Re-Spin. When these mystery symbols (in the form of a question mark) land, they’ll award you with re-spins and convert into the same symbol. You’ll see an animation in the form of maps that unravel down the length of a reel and shuffle 1 reel to the left. Re-spins keep happening until there are no more mystery symbols left as these, like Elvis, will have left the building through the 1st reel.
If you land a mystery symbol during a Free Spin, well then me buccaneer, it will expand to fill the entire reel and this means more ways to win!
If you’ve got lady Luck on your side, you’ll see a treasure chest sitting on reel 5. Every 3 of these that you collect will upgrade the mystery symbol expansion and reveal one more symbol (up to a maximum of 6) which opens up the ways to win a massive 7,776!
Lastly, you can also buy Free Spins during the base game if you have enough gold. These Free Spins are played at 70x your regular bet and you’re also guaranteed a minimum of 3 Scatters.
Yo, ho, ho and a bottle of rum!
Playing Sails of Fortune is a lot of fun. It’s uncomplicated but has enough features to keep you entertained while also allowing players to land some decent wins and Free Spins.
And thanks to a multiplier of 62,208x and max win of €311,040 your treasure chest could be filled to overflowing! If pirate games are your thing, and you prefer high volatility games with big max wins, then check out Pirate Gold Deluxe for more of the same.
