Rage of the Seas
NetEnt invite us to join buccaneering bandits on the high seas with their atmospheric online slot Rage of the Seas. The pirate-themed game provides 1,024 opening win ways across 5 rows and 4 reels, which can expand to 4-7-7-7-4 with the help of certain features
So grab your hipflask and climb on board with Wildz to discover the stockpiles of riches hidden inside this thrilling 2020 release from the equally adventurous software outfit.
The action sees us navigate hostile waters where seafaring pirates risked life and limb to loot stocks of riches from rival one-eyed factions. In this game, you stand to pillage prizes worth a maximum 5,000x for getting the better of your piratey nemeses.
Its creator NetEnt have made every effort to ensure this isn’t just another run of the mill slot retelling the antics of wooden-legged, boisterous pirates. Immaculate attention to detail has been paid to all elements of the game, in particular its graphic presentation - which is of a particularly high standard. Also listen out for some atmospheric sound effects that reach a climax when wins begin to mount up.
This is a highly authentic interpretation of pirate life where the only thing lacking is the sight of a drunken sailor inebriated on rum, lolloping about the ship.
Gameplay and Features
Identical symbols landing across three or more adjacent reels from the first reel constitutes a win in Rage of the Seas. It has to be said that base game payouts are somewhat stingy. They top out at 2.5 times your wager for catching five Cameron Diaz lookalikes, but are mitigated somewhat by the expandable reel configuration and bonus feature bolted onto the game.
An eyebrow-raising maximum bet of €400, meanwhile, should certainly call out to the high rolling crowd among you on the hunt for mega wins.
Whenever these symbols land anywhere on reels 2-4, the Boost feature comes into play. Watch as a monkey proceeds to spring out of a window before expanding to 7 rows and furnishing you with 4 Feature Spins. These then unfold with the expanded reel format in use.
It’s possible to expand even more rows whenever further Boost symbols show up during the feature - which come with 4 additional Feature Spins and one more modifier each time. Keep on catching Boost symbols throughout to reach the maximum 5,488 ways to win.
As to modifiers, they can take one of five forms, which each offer the following benefits:
- Spreading wilds – 1x1 sized wilds which land on reels 2, 3 or 4 and add up to 2 more wilds anywhere except on reels 1 or 5.
- Stacked wilds – a 1x4 stacked wild which can land on reels 2, 3, or 4.
- Major reel upgrade – removes anchor and barrel symbols to make way for bigger possible wins.
- Minor reel upgrade – removes steering wheel and bottle symbols.
- Multiplier – multiplies all wins by x2.
The game’s main event is unlocked in one of two ways. Either collect all 3 Boost symbols, or catch at least 3 Scatter symbols to get your hands on 5, 8 or 12 Free Spins.
Once launched, reels remain fully expanded throughout the feature while 3 random modifiers stay active at all times. In addition, any unused Feature Spins from the base game can be carried over and bolted onto your free spin haul here so that you don’t lose out.
