With Microgaming being one of the largest and best known online and mobile slot machines designers, their in-house team are always dreaming up some amazing themes that many of their slots are based around, and they do get licenses to bring out lots of branded slot games too.
One of their brand new and must play slots that has just gone live is the all singing and all dancing Highlander slot that is available to play right now at any casino site that offers their range of games, and in case you are wondering it is based around the film of the same name!
The only way you are going to enjoy playing any brand new slot game is if you can afford to play it, and as Microgaming have given this slot a multi-stake type of playing structure, and one that gives all players 243 different ways of forming a winning combination on each spin, it’s a slot most players will be able to afford to play!
The way in which a 243 ways to win playing structure works, is that all you are required to do is to line up at the very least the minimum number of matching reels symbols from left to right across the screen and those symbols will be guaranteed to be in at least one winning combination.
The reel symbols that are going to award you with some much higher valued winning payouts are the ones that are themed around characters from the film, the lower paying reel symbols are each of the several different playing card symbols including the Ten, Jack, Queen King and Ace symbols.
Scatter symbols are also in play on the video reels of this slot and one rather unusual feature will kick in when just two of those symbols make an appearance anywhere in view on the slot game screen. Those two scatter symbols will turn into wild symbols so they then stand in for all other reel symbols.
Whilst two scatter symbols will become wild symbols it is important to know that there are also another set of wild symbols that are attached to each of the five video reels of this slot, and they are the key to you winning the jackpot if and when you get five one of them in view, one on each reel.
As you would expect from an all singing and all dancing video slot from Microgaming, the Highlander slot does of course come with a bonus game that you could trigger on any base game spin you play off. That bonus game will be triggered and awarded to you by you spinning in three or more scatter symbols.
By spinning in three or more scatter symbols you then are credited with a set of ten free spins and they will be playing off with both the 243 ways to win playing structure and the same stake as you gambled on the base game spin that triggered the bonus game.
A Quickening Wilds feature can be triggered during the bonus game and that feature adds an increasing number of wild symbols to the reels each time it is randomly triggered throughout the free spins bonus game!
