The exploration of the Arctic was favored by European monarchs so that they could find an alternative trading route to China, either along the coast of North America or along the coast of Siberia. William Barents was the first who tried to find a Northeast Passage but they got only to Novaya Zemlya. The Northwest Passage was first searched by Henry Hudson. An interesting thing happened, his crew wanted to return home, so they set Hudson, his son and some crewmen adrift in a small boat with no food or water. They were never heard from again. Baron Nordenskiöld completed the first successful navigation of the Northeast Passage and on the other side, Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen completed the first navigation of the Northwest Passage when he set his sights on the North Pole.
There’s a slot that is inspired by all those explorations called “Polar Explorer”. The last time I played it was at Grand Parker Casino; I must admit that I don’t play it often because it’s not really generous. It has a feature guaranteed and a good thing is that it shows how many spins you have left. Since nothing special happened, I somehow managed to get to 54.3% chances to trigger it. And I got it! There were 8 free spins that gave me $3.57. The slot wasn’t going to pay well, it was very tight the whole time, so I decided to stop there having around $15. The next slot I played was “Ocean Dreams” and I felt like a real explorer and risk taker so I played with a $0.50 bet and it paid off. Beside some good spin wins, I triggered the Free Games, as well. After 10 free spins I got $17.48.
I recovered my balance and decided to call it a day. Outside was a nice day and I decided to do some exploring of my own city – there are always nice parts of it to be discovered.
