The wombat says: Aye Aye Captain! When it comes to all things nautical, this wombat is a happy marsupial. As a young wombat we dreamed of a life on the high seas, but sadly The Bush is quite landlocked, so instead, we had to make do with paddling in an inch of muddy creek water.
Which is why when we saw Leagues Of Fortune slot from those wizards at Microgaming (of Reel Thunder slot fame), we were overjoyed.
This nautical-themed release invites us to embark on a thrilling sea journey – so come on, let’s dive in!
Look and Feel
The graphics here aren’t half bad! It’s in a different league to games like the Doctor Love on Vacation slot– maybe that’s where it gets its name from? And we think this game could be loosely based on the Jules Verne classic, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, by the look of it. The reels are set against the submarine’s window wand your backdrop is the murky blue depths beyond, where, if you’re lucky you may get to see some large marine life, and the epic soundtrack adds to the atmosphere of adventure too!
Either that, or that fella is the new Captain Birdseye that they tried to do a makeover with on those packs of fish fingers. I seem to remember they went back to the grey bearded captain. Either way, this game is as pretty as the Great Wild Elk slot and there’s more seafood in it!
League of Fortune slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and comes with Microgaming’s hallmark 1024 ways to win. What’s all this about then? Well… This means that you don’t have to worry about selecting the number of pay lines and that boring stuff. Simply line up the matching symbols anywhere on the reels from left to right, or right to left and you’ll win some moolah. It is as simple as that. And let’s face it, games with that many pay lines are bound to be loaded with a massive win potential.
Your symbols on the reels include the standard 10, J, Q, K & A playing cards that make up you lower value symbols, and a load of sea-themed objects that make up your high value symbols. These include; some cartographer’s instruments, the submarine wrapped up in a giant squid, a ye old diving suit and the bushy-bearded captain himself.
The Leagues of Fortune logo is the Wild symbol. It acts like traditional wilds, substituting for all other symbols to help you make more winning combinations, but it will land stacked too, meaning you’re likely to see it appearing more often than usual wilds.
Finally, the chest full of treasure is the Scatter which will set off the bonus game, if you’re lucky…
Free Spins Bonus Round
Land 3x or moe of the Treasure Chest Scatters anywhere on the reels and you’ll set off the Free Spins round!
This comes in 2 parts: firstly you’ll wake up the giant squid from the depths and your submarine will float across the screen. The number of the squid’s golden tentacles that appear will reveal how many Free Spins you’ll get and with what multiplier.
There are 35 free games on offer with up to a 5x multiplier. Then the spins begin!
Your Gamble Feature
If you’re feeling lucky, try the ‘Gamble’ button. It’s a wheel of fortune type feature that will give you the chance to wager your cash after any winning spin. A red and green globe with a compass the needle on it will fill your screen, so place any bet you want and spin! If needle lands in the green section you win, if it lands in the red, you lose… You can then bank your new win, claim 50% of it, or just keep on going.
But a word of warning: The bigger your bet, the larger the red section on on the wheel will be, and if your needle lands on red you’ll lose everything.
To spin or not to spin, that is the question. Well, with 1024 ways to win, stacked wilds, and a x5 multiplier on offer we say League of Fortune his provides plenty of reasons for you to try it out. It is high variance but don’t let that put you off, as when you do win, the pays are chunky.
