Smooth Sailing™ Online Slot
There’s no stormy weather ahead, only smooth sailing as we leave the port to set sail on the reels of the latest online slot from Microgaming and Gold Coin Studios: Smooth Sailing™. This game, available to players at Ruby Fortune online casino Canada, is packed with innovative features such as the Gold Coin Bet™, Free Spins with increasing Connectify Pays™ and more, thanks to the partnership of two top software providers. In this review, we’ll take a look at how to play Smooth Sailing™ and how the in-game bonus features work, so let’s step aboard the luxury ship and get ready to cruise off into the sunset.
Settings And Gameplay
Smooth Sailing™ is a 5-reel online slot with 20 fixed paylines and can be played in both coins and credits. As with most online slots in Canada, the game has moderate bet settings, making it a great choice for both new and experienced players, as the minimum and maximum bets range between 0.20 and 40 credits per spin. There is, of course, the Gold Coin Bet™ which, when activated, will push the min and max bets up to 0.30 and 60 credits respectively, but more on this special bet later. Smooth Sailing™ is a high volatility game which means that even though payouts may be less frequent, they could be bigger than lower volatility games, with an average payout percentage of between 94.85% and 96.22%.
The spin button, as well as an additional menu that will launch the paytable, can be found on the right of the game screen, while the player’s current balance, current win and current bet will be displayed at the bottom. It’s good to note that this layout may look slightly different for mobile players than it will for desktop players.
Symbols And Bonus Features
As the game is set on a cruise ship, the symbols that are found on the reels perfectly match the theme: a bell, the ship’s steering wheel, anchor and captain’s hat, the ship itself and the female captain. There are also the lower paying symbols of the A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 playing card icons. The captain is the Wild symbol and can substitute for all other symbols, with the exception of the Free Spins symbol and the Gold Coin Bet™ Scatter symbol, to complete possible winning combinations.
Should 3, 4 or 5 of the bonus symbols land anywhere on the reels, the Free Spins feature will be triggered where 10 spins will be awarded. During this feature, winning combinations of the gold, red and blue cruise ship symbols will pay Connectify Pays™, which means that these symbols will continue to move from left to right across the screen. The Free Spins symbol on its own can also create a winning combination when it lands anywhere on the reels, and wins connected to this symbol will be multiplied by the total bet, which is also the case with the Gold Coin Bet™ Scatter symbol.
The Gold Coin Bet™ is an optional wager on the side which will automatically add a second Scatter symbol to the reels, therefore increasing the player’s chances of triggering the Free Spins feature. Do take note: by activating the Gold Coin Bet™, it will also automatically increase the bet size by 50%. Players, however, have the option of playing with this feature on or off by simply pressing the Gold Coin Bet™ button.
The Software Providers
Smooth Sailing™ was created by two software providers: Microgaming, which has been in the industry since 1994 creating online casino games in Canada and beyond, and Gold Coin Studios, which Microgaming has collaborated with before. Together, these two providers have designed an online slots game with a great theme, exciting bonus features and state-of-the-art graphics: Smooth Sailing™.
