The oceans no doubt hold all kinds of sunken treasure. In Shipwreck, you spin the reels to go to the bottom of the ocean, in search of these shipwrecked treasures. Shipwreck was developed by our own game software team, who set about trying to create a basic but entertaining slots game around the theme. The result – a 5 reel, 20 payline slot that clocks in with a massive 95.45% payout percentage, amongst the biggest available in slots games of this kind.
The reels are littered with characters and features of wrecked old ships and marine life. In amongst the divers, fish, anchors and octopuses, there are gold coins and other hidden treasures to be found. When you spin the reels, you’re hope is to uncover these treasures, and maybe even walk away with the jackpot of 2,500 coins – if you’re feeling lucky.
Set on the ocean floor, Shipwreck slots is easy to play, and great fun once you start seeing your first wins. With an extra Divers Bonus round to play for, as well as scatters and wilds on the reels as standard, there’s plenty for any slots fan to get excited about.
As with most slots games, you’ll need to keep your eyes on the feature symbols. When these appear, they can have a positive effect on the outcome of your spins, or even help you start seriously driving up your bankroll if you get into the bonus game features.
The Feature Symbols
The Ship: The ship symbol, in keeping with the maritime theme, is wild. When you turn this up on your reels, expect to find it much easier to complete your paylines. If a payline happens to run through the ship symbol, it will convert into the qualifying symbol you need to get paid out. The only symbol it won’t sub for is the scatter symbol, which is pretty standard across most slots games.
When the ship is in play, any paylines that complete through it are paid out at a 2x multiplier, so it’s value extends way beyond its basic wildcard function.
The Diving Helmet: This is the game’s scatter symbol, triggering the bonus game when it appears three or more times on the reels. There are also payouts available for completing a sequence of diving helmets on your board – up to five, where you’re paid out a 100x return on your stake.
Triggering The Bonus Game
The bonus game starts when you get three or more scatters in play. Then you’ll be taken to a second screen where you’ll see a diver, your proxy in the search for additional treasure. But to get there, he needs air. Pressing the ‘Dive’ button will determine how much air the diver will have, which in turn will stipulate how far down to the sea bed he can travel. The lower he goes, the higher the prizes you can win – complete with additional multipliers, to add weight to any bonus winnings you are able to pick up along the way.
Winning The Jackpot
The jackpot can be won at any time on any single spin. All you need to do to win it is land five of the Captain symbols across your reels, and you’ll be an instant winner at 2,500x your stake. Even if you’re playing at lower stakes, this still makes for a pretty decent win. While the jackpot doesn’t come around too often, if you’re in the right place at the right time and the captains show up for you, it could be extremely beneficial to your bankroll.
