NetEnt has released Rage of the Seas, a new online slot game with a ton of features.
First let me say that this game comes with a pirate theme and uses 1024 ways on 5 reels during the base game. All the classic symbols you might expect appear, Pirates, barrel and anchor symbols and there are also scatter symbols on all reels, special boost symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 and even spreading and stacked wild symbols.
Boost Symbols with modifiers and more ways
Reels 2, 3 and 4 feature special boost symbols.
When one of these boost symbols lands on the reels it will expand that reel to 7 symbols high and will award 4 feature spins.
These feature spins will award a random bonus for the next 4 spins, which aren’t free and will cost you your normal bet.
If you land another boost symbol on another reel, that reel will also expand up to 7 symbols and award an extra 4 feature spins with another features activated.
If you land a boost symbol on an already expanded reel, you will get 2 more feature spins.
The ways can open up from 1, 2 or all 3 boost symbols from 1792, 3136 and 5488 ways.
The random features are:
- Spreading Wilds – appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4 and adding 2 more random adjacent wild symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4
- Stacked Wilds – appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4 these wild symbols are a maximum of 4 symbols high
- Major Reel Upgrade – all anchor and barrel symbols are removed from the reels
- Minor Reel Upgrade – all steering wheel and bottle symbols are removed from the reels
- Multiplier – all wins are multiplied by 2
Free Spins Feature
There are two ways to collect the free spins feature. Either get all three boost symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. This can be at the same time, or by opening up all three reels during feature spins.
You can also get 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols to be awarded 5, 8 or 12 free spins respectively.
During free spins feature there are always 3 random features active during all spins and all reels are opened up for 5488 ways.
That was a lot! Feature spins, free spins, increasing ways. But when you play Rage of the Seas you will see that it’s all very simple. And also pretty cool!
This game offers a lot of great bonuses and is especially interesting when you are able to get several features active or during free spins with 3 active features.
And because the game uses up to 5488 ways, you can get some pretty big wins during those features.
The theme of Rage of the Seas is a bit dark, but does come alive well. Players that enjoy a pirate theme will absolutely love this game. And for players, like me, that aren’t that taken by the theme, the gameplay will get you interested.
I think NetEnt created a unique and fun new slot game with Rage of the Seas. Be sure to check out this game at any trusted NetEnt casino.
