He discovered the Azores, The Bahamas, Cuba and Dominica, before he headed back to Europe. Always fancied yourself as an explorer? Then this is the game for you! The reels are set on a map with intricate hand drawings, so claim your share of fortune and treasure that is up for grabs in the New World!
Look and Feel
The first thing we noticed as we fired up 1429 Uncharted Seas slot, is that it’s a absolute beauty to look at. The only game that we can think of that comes close is the Fruit Warp slot.
As mentioned, the interface of the game looks like a hand-drawn map from the Middle Ages, and your reels are framed by a wooden desk in a ship’s cabin. Compare this design to something like the Rhyming Reels Jack and Jill slot. No contest!
Eerie shadows move across the screen to make you feel like your ship is rolling on the high seas, while the soundtrack to your spins is the sounds of bells clanging, cannons booming and storms-a-brewing, all which add to the maritime vibes.
1429 Uncharted Seas is a 5-reel, 3-row and 25-payline slot from those imaginative Swedes, Thunderkick. Your symbols are made up of creatures that sailors believed lurked underneath the deep blue sea and include; enchanting mermaids, giant squids, strange toothy monsters, scary turtles and badass lobsters. Plus, some old fashioned sketch symbols of the sun, moon and stars. Oh, and don’t forget to seek out the elusive Mermaids! They are your highest value symbol and will scoop you 50x your total bet for 5 of them.
The Wild in 1429 Uncharted Seas is the ship, and it will substitute for all other symbols (except for the Scatter of course), keep your eyes peeled for it on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. It will expand to fill up an entire reel of Wilds – which means more winning combos and cash for you. It’s also fun to watch the ship gets dramatically lifted out of the sea and onto the back of a giant sea monster.
Scatter and Spins
The Scatter symbol is the ship’s Compass. Get 3x or more of these beauties and and you’ll unlock the Free Spins Bonus round. The number of spins you will receive is determined how many Compass Scatters you landed in the base game. 3x of them gives you 10 Free Spins, if you had 4 of them, and you’ll get 20 spins, while 5x of the sea-faring gems will see you spinning like whirling dervish, with a sea-sick inducing total of 50!
We really rate this well-designed and entertaining slot. Get sucked into the sea-faring theme just like we did, it’s guaranteed to keep you playing for waaaay longer than you’d planned. Aye Aye Cap’n!
