Microgaming Announces Treasure Skyland Online Slot
Not all pirate adventures take place on the open seas, and not all of them involve human crews. We are not talking about the ghostly sailors in modern tales of the Caribbean, but of the formidable monkey crew of the airships in Treasure Skyland, a brand-new online and mobile optimised slot.
The title is set to launch this month and it offers the elements that are common to almost all online pokies, but it also takes things up a notch. The game has all sorts of bonus features such as Win Extenders and Symbol Upgrades. Sound good? Keep reading to learn more!
We want to get the nitty-gritty out of the way before we get into the look, feel, and features of Treasure Skyland. The new slot has 5 reels and 20 paylines, giving it a format that will be familiar to many players and it was created by Just For The Win Studios, a Microgaming creative partner.
The RTP is a generous 96.18% and the hit rate is a satisfying 24.24%, which is what we have come to expect from the leading online casino provider. The range of betting options is wide. Depending on the value you assign to the coins, you can spin the reels for between a 0.10 minimum and a 100.00 maximum.
Monkeys And More
The 5 reels of Treasure Skyland are set in the sky, which the crew navigate expertly in their airship flying at full sail. They, as well as a few other items, appear as reel symbols.
If you play the game at Mummys Gold Casino, you can meet the young, wily-looking captain, a rather fearsome first mate with a vest into which bananas are strapped, and a sly crew member whose green headband makes his intentions clear – he wants bananas, the only gold-coloured items that could appeal to primates. It’s a good thing the slot will not actually pay out in fruit.
While the crew are high-paying symbols, two symbols are more valuable than even the captain and the first mate, and those icons are the Wild treasure map and the Treasure Skyland game logo, both of which can pay out 40.00 when 5 land on a payline. The lower-value symbols include gold, silver, and bronze coins stamped with A, K, Q, J, and 10.
A Standard Wild Symbol
In addition to being one of the most valuable Treasure Skyland paytable symbols, the treasure map also functions as a standard Wild. However, it appears naturally only on reels 2, 3, and 4. It can land on reels 1 and 5 only if the appropriate special feature is triggered – more on that in a bit. The Wild can substitute itself for all other icons if it can help them complete a winning combination.
Powerful Feature Reel
The element of Treasure Skyland that many players will find most appealing is the Feature Reel, which works in connection with the ship’s wheel-shaped feature frame. The frame appears on the reels during spins, and each time it does, it will be in a different position.
If a payline on which you land a winning combination runs through the wheel frame, it will trigger the Feature Reel. This appears as a single reel to the left of the main reel set, and instead of reel symbols, it contains feature symbols.
One of the treasure Skyland features that it can produce is a Symbol Upgrade that turns icons into higher paying one. Another feature is a Multiplier of 2x, 3x, or 4x that will multiply the payout by the amount indicated.
The Win Extender feature adds symbols to the winning combination. If 3 symbols created the combination, 2 Wilds will be added. If the combination is made up of 4 symbols, 1 Wild will be added. The Symbol-to-Wild feature transforms the symbols in the winning combination into Wilds.
The red bonus symbol triggers the Pick-Me bonus game. If you get to play it, you will need to make a selection from 15 different cards that appear on the new screen. Doing so could see you win prizes, gain additional chances to make picks, and advance along the map toward the treasure. treasure Skyland online slot goes live at Mummys Gold on 20 March 2020.
