Age of Discovery
Age of Discovery, a Microgaming slot machine, is inspired by the early adventurers that crossed the ocean and discovered America. Though they believed that the seas were inhabited by huge monsters, and they had no idea when they would find land, they still went out and risked their lives. This game celebrates those explorers and adventurers that visited the Americas, meaning that you will find conquistadors on its reels, along with fruits from the new regions, sail ships and navigation instruments. The game has for you the usual 5 reels, with 25 paylines and a $30,000 jackpot.
Betting & Jackpots
You may pick between 1 and 25 win lines to have active each round. In each case, you also decide on the number of coins that will be used in the bet, the range being 1 to 10. Finally, you choose the value of the coins, the maximum being $0.50, while the minimum is $0.01. A maximum bet would be at $125.
With a combo of five wilds forming, you can get a 6,000x prize, meaning up to 60,000 coins, or $30,000 cash.
First of all, let’s take a look at the wild symbol, the most popular feature used in modern slot machines. The image chosen for it in this case is that of a gold coin, with a conquistador on it. Wild can be of use since they are substitutes for other regular icons, but they can also form combinations of two to five wilds and pay even the top jackpot this way. Wilds do not replace bonus or scatter symbols.
The Sea Monster symbol is a scatter, which as you know can offer its payouts without having its symbols on the same active line. You can get a payout of 5x, 20x or 80x the wager value, with 3, 4 or 5 Sea Monsters on the reels.
The Compass is the third and final bonus icon, which triggers a bonus game when it appears at least three times on the reels. The bonus game can bring you payouts of up to 32,250 coins.
The design looks good considering what the theme is about. The symbols have images which are either related to the explorers and the tools they used to get over the ocean, or they are with exotic fruits, things they might’ve found when they reached their destination. It’s an appropriate design, and you should be able to enjoy it.
Age of Discovery should have enough fans thanks to its adventure theme and inspiration which comes from the early conquistadors. It also has more than enough features and good payouts to make it worth your while.
