It was in 1986 that the film Highlander was premiered, and here we are in 2018 some 32 years later and Microgaming have just launched its own fully themed Highlander slot based completely around that blockbusting film, and boy what a slot it is!
You have to hand it to Microgaming, when they do get the rights and the license to launch a slot machine themed around any film they really do push the boat out in regards to the design of that slot, and there is a lot to like about the way the new Highlander slot game plays and pays!
You really should give the new Highlander slot game from Microgaming some play time soon, and it is a slot that comes with an unusual playing format, for when playing for any of its available staking options you have a huge 243 ways of forming a winning combination or possibly several of them!
It is a fixed stake slot, so you do need to be aware of that staking structure, but being a slot offered at casinos with different currency option settings you can play it in your own home currency and the minimum bet per spin is 0.40 and the maximum stake per spin is a much higher 30.00.
There are a colourful cast of character reel symbols in play on the highlander slot that you may recognise from the film, and those symbols for reference are the higher paying reel symbols, and as such they will be the ones you will want to see matching sets of spinning in from left to right!
The scatter symbols are quite unique on the highlander slot game for as soon as you get a set of just two of them spinning in they are going to transform into wild symbols, so depending on which reels they do spin in on they could help you form multiple winning combinations when they do turn wild.
The one main reason why you will be playing video slots is of course in the hope you win a jackpot or trigger a huge paying bonus game! The jackpot on the highlander slot grows in value the higher the stake level you play it for and you need a wild symbol anywhere on each of the five reels to win it.
The bonus game is a potentially high paying one you will be pleased to learn, but the only way in which you are going to get to play it off is by you spinning into view three, four or all five of the scatter symbols, spinning in one or two of them will not see you triggering the bonus game!
You will end up playing off a set of 10 free spins as soon as you are lucky enough to spin in three or more scatter symbols in view. Those free spins do play off with the 243 ways to win playing structure in live play and they will be on the same stake you wagered on the triggering spin too.
However, as you play off each of those free spins you will be hoping the random Quickening Wilds feature is awarded to you. When it is a set of the non wild symbols will be randomly chosen to be turned into wild symbols, and each time that feature is awarded a growing number of wild symbols are added to the screen!
