IGT Interactive Launches New Battleship Slot

battleship-slotIt is usually the case when a new online slot game is launched it will serve sometime in the online gaming environment to see if players take to it, and if they do then it will only be a matter of time before that game is then added to the mobile gaming platform offered by the respective software company.

However, in something of an unusual move, IGT Interactive have chosen to launch their brand new Battleship slot on both their online and mobile gaming platforms both at the same time, and this means they must be very confident this slot is going to prove very popular with players.

The original Battleship slot has of course been on offer at land based casinos all over the world for many years now and as such it is a time proven slot that players do enjoy playing, in fact it is probably the popularity of the board game on which this game is themed that has helped this real money slot machine become a highly playable one.

Battleship Slot Features

The Battleship slot is very unusual in regards to its theme which spreads from the backdrop of the game right through to the reels and the bonus game and also the sound effects. It is structured as a 5 reel video slot on which spread over those video reels are a total of 40 paylines, these paylines are optional and as such you can set as many of them into play as you like but a minimum of one of them is required to be activated before you can set the reels into live play.

Much like every other IGT Interactive designed slot game you are also in full control in regards to the stake levels at which you play this slot for, and with the lowest coin value settings being just 0.01 then it can be a very low cost game to play but you are always given the option of playing for larger stake levels by simply increasing the coin value settings upward in value, it should be noted that only one coin per payline activated can be wagered.

The Reel symbols are a mix of themed reel symbols which include Helicopter symbols, Ship symbols, War Plane symbols and Military Personnel symbols and those are the higher paying symbols in play on the reels, the lower paying reel symbols are the Playing Card symbols which include the Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace symbols.

One symbol that you will be hoping drops onto the reels as often a possible are the Battle Ship symbols, these symbols are not only Wild symbols so you can expect them to help complete winning combinations but they are also both multiplier symbols that double the values of all winning combinations they help to form and they are also Staked symbols which means it is possible to get several of them on each reel, and by getting a screen full of them will mean a massive winning payout will be coming your way should you have activated the maximum number of paylines on the spin that they all spun in on.

Battle Ship Slot Bonus Features

There is a unique type of bonus game which you will be able to trigger when playing the IGT Interactive Battleship slot game, it is triggered by spinning in a set of bonus symbols which for reference are a set of scatter symbols and as such they can appear and award the bonus feature no matter where they appear on the base game screen.

Once you have managed to spin in the required minimum number of these bonus scatter symbols then you will play the exciting Battle Ships bonus game which has similarities to the board game on which this slot is themed.

This will see a bonus screen loading on the screen and you will be awarded a certain number of missiles, each missile awarded to you will then lock onto one of the Battle Ships displayed on the bonus screen and one by one those missiles will be launched at those ships. Be aware that more than one missile may be aimed at one or more Battle Ship.

Once you have clicked on the Fire button one missile at a time will then be fired at each Battle Ship and once they have been fired and hit each ship you will be awarded with either a set of credits which are accumulated and added to your winning payout, you may get awarded a number of free spins which will be added up during this part of the bonus game or you may accumulate additional multiplier values.

Once all of the missiles has been fired you will then get to play out your total accumulated free spins and each free spin will play out on the multiplier value you managed to accumulate during the missile firing bonus round.

As all of the free spins you have been awarded are going to be playing out at the same number of paylines and stake levels of the base game that triggered them, then one way of playing this Battle Ship slot to ensure you get the best chances of some higher paying bonus rounds is to always play with the maximum number of lines in play per base game spin you make, you can adjust the coin values and as such activating all 40 paylines will needn’t be too expensive should you set the coin values at the minimum 0.01 setting.

You can now give this Battle Ship slot game some play time for free or for real money at any online casino or mobile casino site that has the IGT Interactive range of games on offer, and remember that as their gaming platform requires no downloading of software this game is one of many instant playing games which load instantly.

If you do decide to give it some playtime remember that our featured IGT Interactive powered sites are offering new players a large sign up bonus which will allow you to play this game with lots of additional credits.
