Based on the famous tail of a sea captain chasing an elusive white whale, Rabcat/Microgaming’s Moby Dick successfully evokes this seafaring voyage. Five reels, three rows and twenty five paylines, Moby Dick’s reels are set to a delightful 3D animated sea backdrop complete with rolling waves and Ahab at the helm of his sailing ship. The symbols on the reels are all nautically themed. Lower value symbols are in the form of the playing card values ten to Ace and are designed to look as though they are carved from wood. Higher value symbols are an anchor, Moby Dick, Captain Ahab and a mug of ale. For the best payouts though, five of the Moby Dick icons landing on the reels will result in 200x the original bet. The wild is represented by a ship’s steering wheel and the free spins by the inside of a whale’s mouth.
How to Play Moby Dick
Before embarking on this nautical adventure, players should know a few of the ins and outs of the game. Firstly there is no progressive jackpot though a decent jackpot of 200 coins is available. Spins can range from a minimum of 0.25 up to 50.00 per spin and with an RTP of 96.3% Moby Dick can be a lucrative game to try out. Available on mobile devices as well as desktop devices, it is playable on the go, anywhere at any time.
The first of the bonuses is the Freezing Win Feature, which actually takes place during the base game. This is activated when a winning combination is made on the reels and this will stay frozen in place for a respin, thus improving and increasing the player’s winnings. This respin will keep reoccurring as long as a matching symbol or wild is added to the winning combo on each spin. Scatters that land during this time will trigger the entire feature again. When no further winning symbols are added, the feature ends and the player is awarded their payout.
The Second feature is the Free Spins. This is triggered when four or more of the whale mouth scatters land on the reels. Four scatters offers ten free spins, five pays out twelve and six offers up fifteen. However, this comes with a surprise twist. If seven scatters land then the player can win twenty free spins, up to a total of forty if more than four of the scatter icons land on the reels. These can be augmented by the wild symbols on the central reel so it is worth players keeping an eye out.
There is also a potentially lucrative gamble feature where players have the chance to double their winnings if they desire.
Throughout the game there are delightful animations of Ahab and Moby Dick, though most are not representative of what happens in the Melville’s famous tale. With excellent bonuses, truly beautiful graphics and ambient seaside sound effects, this slot brings the tale back to life.
