Sovereign of the Seven Seas Slots
Exploring the ocean in search of hidden treasure is the theme of Sovereign of the Seven Seas, an online slot game created by Microgaming. This slot contains 5 reels and up to 40 paylines and takes place at sea, with a number of ship-related items appearing on the reels.
Sovereign of the Seven Seas includes scatter and wild symbols, as well as expanding wilds in both the base game and the bonus feature. Also on offer is the free spins bonus feature in which players can claim up to 20 free spins and win multipliers of up to 4x the win.
Game Theme and Graphics
The game is set against a clear blue sky, and a large wooden ship approaches the player on a turbulent sea from the backdrop. The reels are deep red and simple in design, and on the reels a number of ship-related paraphernalia can be found, including a ship’s compass, an ornate standing bell and the ship’s captain. These reel symbols are all 3-dimensional and detailed, and animations such as the figure-head wild coming to life when involved in a winning combination add a further element of interest to the game.
On the reels of Sovereign of the Seven Seas are the colourful playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, which are the lower value symbols in the game. Additionally, the ship’s captain makes an appearance, as do a vintage-style ship’s compass, a standing bell and an open chest filled with golden coins.
Wild Symbol and Expanding Wilds
The game’s wild symbol is the beautiful female figure-head at the ship’s bow, which springs to life when involved in a winning combination. This wild symbol can substitute all other game symbols, with the exception of the cannon scatter symbol.
Additionally, the figure-head wild is also an expanding wild during both the base game and bonus feature, and expands to cover the reel when appearing on reels 2, 3 or 4.
The cannon serves as Sovereign of the Seven Seas’ scatter symbol, and landing 3 or more of these symbols anywhere on the reels will activate the free spins bonus feature.
Free Spins Bonus Feature
Once the bonus feature has been triggered, players will be redirected to a separate screen where they may choose 1 of 3 wooden barrels. Each of these barrels will award them with a number of free spins and a multiplier for those spins’ wins. Players can claim 20 free spins and a 2x multiplier, 15 free spins and a 3x multiplier or 10 free spins and a 4x multiplier. Once players have chosen a barrel, the free spins will begin, and any wins landed during these free spins will be subject to their respective barrel’s multiplier.
Sovereign of the Seven Seas also offers a gamble feature, in which players can double or quadruple their most recent win. Players must correctly guess the colour of a hidden playing card to double their bets, or predict the suit of the card to quadruple them.
