The Age of Discovery is widely regarded as the most important global expeditions in history. Beginning in the 15th Century and running a further 200 years into the 17th with many new lands, cultures and discovered by intrepid explorers. The Age of Discovery video slot celebrates this bygone era with a wide variety of visual referencers and features related to the theme.
Age of discovery Slot Theme
Age of Discovery has a maritime theme as ships were the only method available to Sir Francis Drake, Sir Walter Raleigh and the like to explore the world. The five reels have been created on a sail graphic whilst the buttons beneath have a wooden look to create the allure of a traditional vessels hull.
Reel icons follow a similar seafaring theme with a mixture of artifacts and cargo which would have been discovered and imported by early explorers. These icons include compasses, ships, sextants, coat of arms, avocados, bananas, pomegranate, figs and dragons.
Ambience is further created with a mixture of standard and themed sound effects. Flutes, whistles and stringed instrument sound effects are used to mark wins, bonus games and other key actions during standard and bonus gameplay.
Betting options and other additions
Players can choose from three options in order to adjust their bet; coin value, lines and coins per line. This creates a betting range of 0.01 to 250 in USD, EUR and GBP. This wide range makes Age of Discovery an ideal slot for any budget.
The regular button console does not include automatic spins but should you want them an expert panel can be used instead, it’s nice to be given this choice as many slots tend to either have auto spins or not.
Age of Discovery slot features
The Golden coin (looks like Spanish gold to me) plays as the wild symbol which means it can swap out for other symbols to create winning combinations. As on other slots it cannot sub for scatters or bonus icons but unlike other slots can payout a maximum of 60,000 when five appear on an active payline.
The Dragon Scatter symbol pays out instant wins multiplied by the line stake when 3, 4 or 5 appear simultaneously. This will award 5 times, 20 times or 80 times the line stake respectively which makes it a rather useful symbol.
An intriguing bonus round entitled ‘The Treasure Bonus’ is awarded when three or more compass graphics appear on the reels. You are presented with a map of the world which contains 30 dig sites. You continue to select sites until the skull and crossbones (jolly roger) icon is found. Every successful find will award an instant win and even if you strike out on the first go you also receive a prize.
Our View on the Age of Discovery Slot
The designers have combined various features which tend to payout well and ensured the bets remain targeted to a wide range of players. Too many slots focus on modern themes these days which is why Age of Discovery is so different. It’s somewhat ironic that its historical theme has helped create a fresh feeling slot which is fun to play.
