The Discovery is powered by Playtech and comes with 5 reels and 25 paylines. Playable on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 25p to £10 per spin, it has a historical theme as you set sail in the Pacific Ocean where you can benefit from stacked wilds and infinite free spins with a 3x multiplier.

Visually, you are taken to the Pacific Ocean just offshore a deserted island. Based on Captain Cook and his adventures, it has a historical theme to it with symbols on the reels reflecting this – you will see regular playing cards (A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9) as well as white flowers and telescopes, mountainous islands and Polynesian women – the latter is the most valuable symbol rewarding you with 5,000 times your line stake (or 200 times your total bet) for 5 on a payline.

Look out for the compass which is the wild symbol and appears stacked on the 3 central reels (reels 2, 3 and 4) – it also substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. The scatter is the Captain (Cook) with 3 or more anywhere on the reels triggering the Free Games feature.

Here you will begin with 10 free spins with all wins subject to a 3x multiplier and trebled. If you get 3 or more Captain scatters during the feature on a free spin, you will be rewarded with a further 10 free spins. The good news is that there is no limit to how many times you can retrigger the feature giving you unlimited free spins potentially.

The Discovery doesn’t offer you anything that’s innovative or new – it’s quite a standard slot with a simple Free Games feature. The variance is in the middle though with good wins possible in the base game (due to the stacked wilds) and the free spins feature. I’ve won just shy of 100 times my total bet in the feature which is good.

Visually, it’s not as good as some other Playtech titles (like Green Lantern) but a welcome addition to their portfolio. If you like ocean/sea inspired games, Novomatic’s Red Lady is a superb pirate-themed option which is also high variance.
