Powered by Bally Technologies, Titanic is a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot based on the ill-fated ship, or more specifically, the hit 1997 movie based on the ill-fated ship. Featuring scenes from the famous film and a bumper range of features, you can set sail from between 35p and £100 per spin. It’s also available to play across desktop, mobile and tablet devices.

The first thing to decide when firing up Titanic is what level to play at as there are 3 choices. A third class ticket will give access to all 25 paylines as well as the bonus features. Second class gives you the chance to win Mini or Midi Jackpots too. Opt for a first class berth and you’ll have a shot at winning the Major Jackpot too.

The visuals in Titanic are impressive – symbols on the reels include photo images of assorted pieces of luggage, pocket watches, leather gloves, taxi cabs as well as some of the main characters from the film including Rose (Kate Winslet) and Jack (a baby-faced Leonardo DiCaprio) – they’re joined by the Titanic logo which will get you a payout of 500 times your line bet if you land 5 in a payline.

There are plenty of features on offer in Titanic, starting with the Mystery Double Wilds feature – these can appear at random on base game spins. Watch Jack and Rose dance across the reels to leave a trail of 2x multiplier wilds. Next is the Mystery Wilds Reels feature – these also hit randomly in the base game and will turn 2 reels into wilds ones.

Look out too for the Mystery Jackpot feature that can be awarded at random following any base game spin – pick from the trio of Rose or Jack images on show to reveal a cash prize or the Mini or Maxi Jackpot. You have to be playing at first or second class stakes to be eligible for this one.

There are also 4 more features which are determined by spinning the ship’s wheel. If you land on a coin amount, you’ll receive that prize but you’ll also carry on spinning until you land a feature bonus.

The first of the quartet is The Safe Feature. Here you get to test your safe-cracking abilities – pick from 1 of 10 safes to reveal a cash amount. Then choose 1 of the 5 items in the luxurious room to determine the multiplier which will be applied to the amount chosen in the safe (up to 8x).

Next is the Pick Up feature – starting on the bottom row, pick objects to work your way up a prize board and in the process reveal cash prizes and multipliers. Make it all the way to the top and you can boost your win by up to 10x.

The Heart of the Ocean Free Games feature award you with some free spins. You have a decision to make though – opt for a high number of free spins with a small multiplier or fewer spins with a larger multiplier. Played out on a new set of reels with new symbols, look out for the Heart of the Ocean symbol which is the wild and can expand horizontally to boost your winning chances.

Finally, there’s the Make It Count Free Games feature which benefits from a fresh set of symbols too – hope to see the clock symbol which awards special bonus prizes including cash bonuses, locked wilds or extra free spins.

As you can see, there’s plenty to get stuck into in Titanic making it a natural choice if you like plenty of variety in your play – the sound and visuals are as glossy as you’d hope from a movie tie-in too. Expect plenty of stills and animations from the film as well as a familiar backing track.

We weren’t massive fans of the film so were a little unsure about what to expect from this adaptation. The range of features is good though, offering a little something for everyone – throw in the classy imagery and it’s a very easy play.

The film (and the ship) ended in disaster. Given the range of goodies on offer, playing Titanic is a far more enjoyable experience. If you like slots based on iconic movies, there are plenty about with Playtech’s Gladiator Jackpot also offers you progressive jackpots – I would also recommend Microgaming’s Jurassic Park which is one of my favourite games ever.
