Theme & Symbols
If you’ve watched any pirate themed movie or show then you’ll already have a good idea as to what this video slot game looks and feels like. Picture being out on the open ocean, aboard a pirate ship seeking your fortune.
The background is nothing other than open waters and a slightly cloudy sky. There are no animations in the background which is a bit of a disappointment, adding slashing waves or drifting clouds would’ve added so much more to this title but it isn’t a game breaker.
The grid is made of wood, beautifully carved patterns line the sides of it while chipped boards make up the tiles of the reels. The chips and dents give off the impression that it has been used quite often.
The music is one of this game’s best features, it fills you with a sense of adventure and excitement. The jolly tunes will have you speaking like a pirate after you’re done playing this title. Sound effects are subtle as to not throw off the rhythm of the back track.
Animations leave a bit to be desired. Most of the title is static with the symbols bouncing around on winning spins. The reels spin perfectly so there’s no worry there. It would’ve been nice to see a bit more life come out of this title.
In all, Relax Gaming has done a pretty good job with this game. The areas where it’s lacking is nowhere near bad enough to make the title unplayable.
We’ll start with the low-paying icons. These are represented by playing card suits. You’ll be seeing Hearts, Spades, Clubs and Diamonds pop up quite often as you spin away looking for your hidden treasure.
Next up are the high-paying symbols. Represented by classic pirate themed imagery you’ll want to keep an eye out for a Fish Skeleton, a Message in a Bottle, a Harpoon, a Female Pirate and a Male Pirate.
The Scatter in this game is represented by a treasure chest key, landing enough of these during a single spin will trigger a special gameplay feature.
Online Betting Options & Features
Sails Of Fortune starts off as a 5-reel, 3-row video slot by Relax Gaming. The reels can expand to eventually produce 7776 ways to win. The RTP of this title sits at around 96.15%.
There is the possibility that randomly, during a spin, a treasure map will land on a reel. This treasure map will trigger re-spins so long as there is at least one Mystery treasure map symbol in play. At the end of the spin all treasure maps will reveal the same, random symbol. These Mystery Symbols will move one space to the left until there are no more on the grid.
Landing 3 Scatters on a single spin will award you with 8 bonus spins. An additional 1 spin is earned per Scatter after 3. If a Mystery Symbol lands during the bonus spins it will cover the whole reel that it landed on. Only present on reel 5 is a special treasure chest. Every 3 chests collected will add an additional symbol that gets revealed via the Mystery Symbol up to a total of 6.
