What are the features in Sails of Fortune?
The features are Mystery Map Respin, Treasure Hunt Free Spins, Expanding Mystery Map and Bonus Buy.
When you spin the reel and land a Mystery Map, you immediately receive a Respin, where you then get more Respins as long as the symbol remains on the reels. This symbol will then move one step to the left of each Respin made and after each spin, all Mystery Map symbols will display the same symbol type. The Respins end when all Mystery Map symbols have moved outside the reels.
If you land 3 or more scatter symbols, the Treasure Hunt Free Spins are activated. You then get 8 free spins for the first 3 landed scatter symbols and for every extra scatter you land you get 1 extra free spin. Within this feature, the Mystery Map gets new improved features, they can become Expanding Mystery Maps.
When you land Mystery Map within the free spins feature, these will just like before give Respins as long as they remain on the reels. They are then moved 1 step to the left for each Respin made until they finally disappear from the reels. The difference here compared to within the base game is that the Mystery Maps will expand and cover the entire reel on which they land, which can generate significantly larger winnings. Initially, there are 3 positions that this symbol can show, but this can then be upgraded during the game.
On reel 5 it can land treasure chests and when it does, they will be collected. When you have then managed to collect 3 chests, the expansion of the mystery symbol will be upgraded. With each upgrade, 1 extra symbol is added, which can give a maximum of 6 symbols. As a result, you can go from 243 paylines up to 7776 paylines. You also get 1 extra free spin each time this upgrade occurs.
If you want to get directly to the Treasure Hunt Free Spins feature, you can use the Bonus Buy feature. You then pay 70X the bet and are guaranteed to land at least 3 scatter symbols. When you activate this feature, the RTP will increase to 96.65%.
This is an exciting slot from Relax Gaming where they have chosen to completely remove the Wild Symbols and instead focus on other symbols. As in this case, the Treasure Map is a symbol, and it turns out to have very wonderful properties. In the base game, this mystery symbol gives Respins as long as the symbol remains on the reels, after each Respin that takes place, the mystery symbols that exist will be moved one step to the left until they finally leave the reels. After each spin, they show the same symbol type, which can generate many winning combinations, but even though this symbol is fascinating in the base game, it is in the bonus game that it really becomes magical to land. It will then have exactly the same features as in the base game, but it will also expand to cover the entire reel on which it landed. The very exciting thing about this symbol is that you can upgrade the number of symbols it contains by collecting Treasure Chests.
In the beginning, you react to the fact that the number of free spins obtained is not very high, but when you then start to take part in the Respins that the mystery symbols give, you realize that you get to take part in many spins anyway. It's really interesting to take part in this slot which mostly focuses on mystery symbols, which is a feature that people really started to love within their previous slot Iron Bank.
This slot enables big winning combinations through its Expanding Mystery Maps which can cover up to 6 rows while continuing to deliver Respins as long as this symbol type remains on the reels.
