Design and Gameplay
Set sail with Queen of the Sea video slot to the uncharted waters where the gold of legendary pirates awaits patiently to be claimed. GameArt’s provides the means for this risky endeavor. You are expected to be daring and adventurous, and also able to cope with seas sickness. Now hoist the sails, look to the horizon and follow the stars.
GameArt’s game is simplistic visuals, but it does the job of setting up the right mood. All you need is your trusty hat, and you’re there. The lack of animations is noteworthy since most players nowadays are accustomed to such details. Not to mention the limited music, and sound effects which seem to have been given the most archetypical form. Apart from what was just said, the graphics are well produced, with an emphasis on the golden coins that lay scattered around.
Following the classic grid style of 3 x 5 reels, Queen of the Sea nevertheless adapts a more uncommon payline system. There are 720 paylines, giving the player an abundance of winning opportunities, not to mention all the rum they can handle. The impressive number of paylines must have some equally notable symbols. The design of the higher paying symbols is impressive in its details. These symbols are the parrot, the ship, the map and the Queen herself. Next is the Scatter symbol represented, very thematically, by a treasure chest overflowing with gold. Finally we have the Wild icon in the shape of a knife biting golden skull.
Let us explore both these symbols, starting with the Wild. The Wild substitutes for all symbols, and when it does so during a win it will double the payout. The Scatter symbol, unsurprisingly, activate the Free Spins, as well as some hefty payouts. Check the paytable for more on this. Land on three or more scatters to activate the Free Spins option. There you will chose between chests, each with a different set of free spins.
In conclusion Queen of the Sea is a typical slot game, offering just enough to reel players in. However with the lack of any bonus game, not to mention the lackluster sound design, it may have some issues keeping a loyal player basis.
