Go back in time to an age when seafaring adventurers went exploring the mysteries of the world’s oceans in 1429 Uncharted Seas. Created by Thunderkick, this 5 reel, 25 payline video slot comes with unusual but very impressive design as well as a stacked wilds and a bonus feature that awards up to 100 free spins. Set sail from between 10p and £100 per spin.
The visuals in 1429 Uncharted Waters are superbly done and have a real feel for a medieval treasure map. You’ll see drawings of the sun, moon and stars as well as mysterious maritime creatures and a mermaid. Land 3, 4 or 5 mermaids on a line you’ll pocket an award equal to 4, 8 or 50 times your total stake.
Look out for the symbol featuring the sailing ship under attack from a mighty sea monster – this is the wild and can land on reels 2, 3 and 4. When it hits, it will expand and turn the whole of that reel wild. As usual, the wild replaces everything apart from the scatter.
That scatter is the ship’s compass symbol. Find 3, 4 or 5 of these on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature and with it, 10, 20 or 50 free spins. Re-triggers are possible here too, again offering up to 50 free spins meaning you can get up to 100 in total. The expanding wilds are in play during the free spins round too which really helps.
Thunderkick has pulled out all the stops with the design of 1429 Uncharted Seas. The Middle Ages style visuals are highly unusual for a video slot but look superb. The same can be said of the stirring soundtrack. The range of extras isn’t wide but the expanding wilds land regularly to add an extra layer of interest.
The theme here may be fearsome sea creatures but these waters aren’t especially dangerous for your bankroll. The variance here is medium so you can expect plenty of play for your investment. The Return To Player Rate of 98.5% is as good as you’ll find anywhere and it does offer wins of up to 670 times your bet on every spin.
This is a fantastic looking game. The features may be simple but they can deliver impressive results if you get the expanding wilds. I also recommend you try some of Thunderkick’s other offerings with Full Moon Romance and Pink Elephants good choices.
