Island Quest slot - Free Play - Game Review
We’ve seen the whole adventure-themed slot successfully used by many a game developer, from the likes of Netent’s Gonzo's Quest, to Microgaming’s Jungle Jim: El Dorado, etc.
And Spielo have finally decided it’s time they add an adventurer-themed slot to their game-range… which is why, today, we’re reviewing Island Quest!
Island Quest takes you to the trenches of South America, and plunges you into a world filled with treasure, creepy (and frankly scary creatures), and has you do your best to try and get to the treasure in time.
The backdrop of the slot is set on a desert island - something that’s a little strange for South America - but still, the ambient and dynamic tone really sets the scene, and helps to encompass you into the gameplay.
Symbols on the reels include playing-card values - which of course depict the game’s low-value symbols - and there’s also a number of game specific symbols, which include an adventurer, a compass, a parrot, and a ship.
If you manage to land 3, 4, or 5 of the scatter symbols anywhere in view you’ll trigger the free-spins bonus, and during the bonus, one of the high-value symbols is chosen - at random - to become stacked across all five reels.
This means that it’s technically possible to land a full screen of one of the highest-paying symbols… and even if your random symbol is chosen as the low-value of the high-value symbols, a full-screen will still net you 200X your stake - meaning there’s HUGE potential for big wins in the bonus round.
It’s also possible to re-trigger the free-spins, by landing yet another 3, 4, or 5 of the scatter symbols anywhere in view - and doing so will award you with an additional 12 free-spins.
(There’s actually no cap on the number of times you can re-trigger the bonus round, although it does seem to be quite rare to re-trigger the spins more than twice.)
Pros: Island Quest features a fantastic bonus round, which can pay massive amounts of money, if you’re able to get a full-screen.
Cons: Hard to fault this game really - it plays well, pays well, and is really fun to play!
