Movie-loving slots fans will soon have another top title to look out for courtesy of the soon to be released Titanic. Created by Bally Technologies (part of the SG Interactive empire), this 5 reel, 25 payline slot is based on the Oscar-winning 1997 film that made superstars of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
As you’d hope from a slot created by giants from the movie and online casino worlds, no expense has been spared in making Titanic look shipshape. Expect lavish visuals, stills and clips from James Cameron’s movie, all backed by a suitably sweeping score.
The developers haven’t shirked on the features front either, packing in s7 (!) bonus rounds into the game, including a progressive jackpot.
Among the goodies players can look forward to while taking to the high seas are mystery double wilds, mystery stacked wilds and a mystery jackpot, all of which are triggered at random.
Joining them are 4 more extras features which are determined using the ship’s wheel. You can also pick up a special cash bonus prize here too before floating on to the extra.
Look out for the Safe feature, a variation on the pick me round that offers cash prizes and multipliers depending on your safe cracking abilities. The Pick Up feature is another pick me round. Work your way up the board picking objects to reveal cash and multipliers. Make it to the summit for a 10x multiplier boost.
Free spin fans will be well catered for too with a pair of bonus games on offer. The Heart of the Ocean feature offers a selection of free spins and multipliers. Opt for a high number of free spins and a small multiplier or fewer spins or a high multiplier. The choice is yours.
Finally, there is the Make It Count Free Spins feature – look out for the clock symbol during this bonus round as it’s the key to winning the cash prizes, multipliers or extra spins on offer.
Players will have the choice of embarking on their Titanic journey at 1 of 3 price points. Play at the cheapest third class ticket level and you’ll get access to all 25 paylines as well as the bonus features. Pay a little more for second class and you’ll have a chance to win Mini or Midi Jackpots too. Go all the way with a first class berth and you’ll have a shot at winning the Major Jackpot too.
The original 1997 movie proved to be a huge box office hit. Boasting superb sound and images, a wealth of features and a progressive jackpot the new Titanic slot looks more than capable of following suit. Get ready to set sail later this year (predicted in March 2016).
Bally Technologies will also be releasing Michael Jackson King of Pop which is scheduled for April 2015. It’s certainly exciting times at Bally/SG Interactive. Under the WMS umbrella, they have just released Epic Monopoly II which can be played at various online casinos.
I recommend LeoVegas Casino who have enhanced their welcome offer to include 50 no deposit free spins on NetEnt’s Guns N’ Roses. Then there’s a 200% first deposit bonus up to £100 and a further 200 free spins (on a choice of 5 NetEnt slots) once you’ve deposited – you will get 20 free spins a day for 10 days. There are also 3 more deposit bonus offers giving you up to £1,500 free.
