Sharky Slot Review
Sharky slot is a 5 reel 9 payline game created by Novomatic. The theme of the game is a pirate sailing the sea in order to find lost treasures. He must be careful of sharks during his adventures. Join the pirate’s crew and you could get your part of the riches he finds. Sharky slot sea symbols include sabres, parrot, crossed cutlasses, treasure chests and pirate ships. The shark can only make its appearance in the feature, but you really don’t want to see it as it will capsize your boat and make you meet your maker.
The game is medium to high volatile as small wins are easy to get but 5 symbols on an active payline are a lot harder to achieve. The pirate is the money making symbol in the game, land 5 pirates on a line and you will get just over 555 times your stake, 4 pirates will be worth over 111 times your stake. Even just one pirate symbol will give you a win. Five parrots on an active line will get you over 111 times your stake as well.
There are three scatter symbols in the game – a compass, a ship and an island. The ship and the island only serve to activate the free spins feature. You can play from as little as 9p a spin to as much as £90 a spin. The pirate is a wild symbol, the wild symbol can replace any other missing symbol to complete a winning combination to increase chance of winning except for the scatter symbols.
When you manage to land a ship symbol on the first reel and a desert island on the fifth reel, it activates the Free Spins feature where you get 10 free spins. This is where the fun begins and comes the chance to make some real money.
Every time a ship appears on reel one, the pirate is lowered into the water in a small boat and he starts to row across the reels. He becomes a wild symbol and moves one reel to the right with each spin, until he reaches reel 5. The pirate is a very brave man because if he encounters the shark, the shark will eat him. If the pirate gets lucky he will have a treasure chest on the reel next to him (left or right), in which case he will swim to the chest and reveal a prize ranging from 2x to 50x your stake. Free spins can be re-triggered with the boat and island combination.
There is also a Gamble feature which is pretty standard and not worth mentioning. Sharky is a fun game to play as you win great rewards with 5 symbols but the Free Spins feature is where the bigger wins will come from. My aunt (yes, my aunt) plays slots a lot in bingo halls in London and she goes on to the slots inevitably.
She’s obsessed with Sharky and Katana (Shogun) and says the thrill of the pirate rowing across the reels is what keeps her coming back. Sharky is a classic and one I love to come back to from time to time – I’m sure you will like the game and other Novomatic slots as they provide a unique experience.
