- but why not try one of these?
Life on the ocean waves in the 17th and 18th centuries was what we might understatedly call ‘exciting’; the risk of piracy or the possibility of a shipwreck was never far away and the first footstep on dry land was always welcome. Cannonball Bay is an online slot from Microgaming which takes a look back at those battles for naval superiority so read on to find out more.
Cannonball Bay is a five reel slot with three rows and up to twenty five paylines; the nicely designed backdrop displays what looks like a contemporary map and two galleons facing off against each other. Puffs of smoke from these ships highlight the firing of cannons and the dramatic music adds some welcome atmosphere to proceedings.
There are four theme-related high value symbols including an anchor, a ship’s wheel, barrels and a locked chest. 9, 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The cannon represents the wild symbol and our nautical conquistador is the scatter which activates the main feature.
Our cheerful Spanish sailor is the scatter symbol and you will need to land three or more anywhere on the reels. Your booty is five free spins which may not sound many but with every spin cannonballs are fired onto the reels. Those cannonballs then explode, turning other random symbols wild.
The reels will then be reevaluated with those wilds in place which can result in some big wins. If you are lucky enough to land three+ more scatter symbols during this feature then five more spins will be added to your total.
Cannonball Bay Online Slot Playing Tips
The feature is triggered by a scatter symbol so low rollers will be pleased to know that playing with just one payline will still have the same chance of activating the free spins. Payouts will be lower though.
This is a really good-looking slot and we can’t help thinking that a little more could have been made of the theme in terms of features. However it’s still playable and worth checking out. During the free spins look out for the pelvis-thrusting Spaniard above the reels.
