Sky Way Slot Review
It’s up, up and away in Sky Way, an aviation-themed slot from Playson. This 5 reel, 21 payline title transports players to the early age of flight and comes with free spins and jackpots of up to 9,000 times your stake. Take to the skies from between 21p and £105 per spin.
As is usual with slots from the Playson, the base game action in Sky Way flies along at supersonic speed. The reels are filled with a selection of characters and paraphernalia from the pioneering days of aviation and include inventors, mechanics, globes and instruments.
By far the biggest payer is the female pilot. Find 5 of our heroine in a payline and massive payout of 9,000 times your line bet awaits. The pilot also acts as the wild and substitutes for all other symbols apart from the airship scatter. Find three or more airships anywhere on the reels to trigger 16 free spins. During the Free Spins feature, the scatter also acts as an extra wild. If you find 3 or more airships you’ll be rewarded with 16 more free spins.
You can also gamble your winnings after each successful spin – it’s the usual Playson offering. Correctly identify the colour of a playing card to double your win. Match the suit and it will be quadrupled. The visuals on offer in Sky Way are more impressive than those on show in many Payson slots. The pilot and her colleagues are drawn in great detail and fly into life after each winning payline. The action on the reels is set against a wispy, cloud-packed backdrop and played out to a stirring soundtrack.
The game play is typically fast but the variance is relatively low. You should be able to stretch your bankroll here. Expect steady streams of smaller wins. It is possible to fly away with something spectacular of course, especially when you trigger and re-trigger the free spins. In terms of features, Sky Way may not be in the Concorde league. It’s certainly better than a bargain basement, budget carrier though. I prefer higher variance and Wild Hunter by Playson is a better game in my opinion.
