Microgaming has just released its latest Highlander slot game. Highlander slot by Microgaming is based on the original 1986 movie that is regarded as a cult classic by many.
Rand Marlis, CEO of Creative Licensing, said:
“The game came together exceptionally well. We are immensely pleased with the results and believe fans will love the art, which is a beautiful reflection of the classic film.”
There are five reasons slot enthusiasts, as well as fans of the Highlander franchise, should give the game a whirl in Bitcoin casinos. Check out why this new Microgaming slot should be on your must-play list.
Quickening Wilds in Free Spins mode
The Scatter mode of the game is triggered by getting at least three Scatter Emblem symbols to appear on the reels. The Free Spins mode gives players 10 free rounds and it activates Quickening Wilds.
Quickening Wilds is where a random symbol turns into a Wild one. Another feature of Quickening Wilds is how it automatically increases the number of symbols to be turned into Wilds. If the Quickening Wilds were triggered to turn one symbol to a Wild one in one of the spins, the feature turns two symbols to Wild ones instead of just one. The amount of Wilds turned by the Quickening Wilds keeps growing until the end of the Free Spins mode.
Transforming Scatter Symbol
Two Scatter symbols in other slots are usually a waste since these do not do anything. In Highlander, however, two Scatters turn to Wild ones. Players can create high-payout matches with this feature instead of just having the Scatter symbol simply take space on the reels.
243 Pay Lines
Highlander slot has 243 pay lines or 243 ways to win across its 5×3 grid. Players can match any symbols adjacent to each other from the left to right side of the reels regardless of the position.
The 243 pay lines feature works well with the Transforming Scatter Symbol feature. Having at least two Wild symbols on the reels can help players connect five symbols for a large payout.
102,500 Overall Prize Credits
Players can win a total of 102,500 credits in one spin. Even without the single spin, players can get a high payout from matching five Wild symbols or get five Scatter symbols on the reels since these are the highest-paying symbols in the game.
Highlander Movie References
Highlander slot is rich in video clips from the movie. These clips appear on the Character symbols when players match them.
The most notable reference in the game is the background. In the base game, the background is that of the Scottish Highlands in the past. In the Free Spins mode, the background changes to a dark New York skyline in modern times.
