Discovery Theme In Online Video Slots

September 7, 2017

At one time the only known regions on earth were Europe, Asia and the northern part of Africa. The Americas an Australia were discovered by the efforts of hardy and daring seafarers like Columbus and Captain Cook. Several online slots pay tribute to these discoverers.

The Playtech discovery themed video slot is titled The Discovery. The thematic symbols on the reels include captain, native girl, compass, island, telescope and exotic flower. The compass is a stacked wild symbol and is instrumental in hitting frequent winning combinations. The girl awards the highest line payouts. A combination of five symbols pays 5,000 times the line bet, which leads to variance on the higher side. The captain is the scatter symbol. It can trigger 10 free spins at tripled payouts. The Discovery is live at all Playtech powered online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.

Microgaming has two discovery themed slots in its portfolio that are live at online casinos like Royal Vegas and Spin Palace. Age of Discovery is similar to the Playtech slot game. The symbols on the reels are compass, sextant, gold coin, dragon sketch and schooner. The dragon fits in because at that time it was believed that sea dragons lived at the edge of the world. Age of Discovery does not employ the usual playing card icons but uses exotic fruits from the newly discovered lands. Age of Discovery includes a thematic bonus game on the second screen. You keep selecting from the thirty treasure sites displayed on a map till you reveal a skull and cross bones. You win bonus credits for each valid selection.

Lucky Eggsplorer, also from Microgaming, develops the discovery theme in a comical manner. Human characters have been replaced by birds. The captain is a rooster named Chook, an obvious reference to Captain Cook. The natives are represented by a hula dancer and a witch doctor. The other thematic symbols are schooner, ship’s wheel and map. Captain Chook is the wild symbol and the Map is the scatter symbol. The win animations add to the visual appeal of this video slot. Lucky Eggsplorer has a bonus game on the second screen that is triggered when three or more map symbols appear anywhere on the reels. A world map opens and displays bird characters in native costumes of five destinations that were the targets of the discoveries. You have to select three of those destinations for free spins and bonus credits.
