Online gaming developer Thunderkick came on the scene in 2012 having spotted a gap in the online gaming market, namely that most slots games were on the basic side. Their goal was to design and develop newer, smarter, faster and better games and with their offering of 1429 Uncharted Seas, they have done just that.
Thunderkick has certainly pulled no punches with this game as it comes with a 98.6% RTP, cute graphics and seamless gameplay, and with low volatility this game is ideal for those gamers hoping to win big for a minimal outlay. Of course, on the flip side, there are going to be fewer wins, yet when they do arrive, they will potentially be worth a lot more.
The game has a 5-reel 3-row layout that resembles an old sea chart, and it is here that the sea battles are fought with gunships and cutlasses amongst many. The maximum number of paylines can be set at 25 and the range of stakes you can wager starts at 10p and rises up to $/€/£100, whilst the gameplay is restricted to left to right only, and there are 25 winning combinations.
Winning is as easy as landing three identical symbols, and the game contains eight standard symbols and two bonus symbols. The base symbols are icons linked to ancient seafaring and include a mermaid, lobster, giant squid, a smaller sea serpent, and a sea turtle to name but a few. The wild symbol is represented by a Sea Serpent and will replace all other symbols apart from the bonus symbol. There is also the chance to stack wild symbols for even bigger wins and is represented by a green monster and ship icon that will only land on reels 2, 3 and 4.
There is no progressive jackpot on this game, and the most coins you can win is set at 67,000.
Land three or more scatter symbols and you will be given access to the free spins feature, where three scatter symbols will grant you 10 free spins, four will see you get 20 free spins, and land all five scatters will give you 50 free goes.
That is about it for bonus features, and the lack of any mini-games may disappoint some players, but the ability to win big if you land the full 50 free spins does provide a consolation of sorts.
Visually, 1429 Uncharted Seas cannot be faulted as it looks good and sounds good, and you can tell a lot of time and effort has gone into creating the symbols. The sound of cannon blasts, thundercracks and sea bells all add to the maritime atmosphere of the game and although some players may lament the lack of decent bonus features, Thunderkick has delivered a simplistic game that should appeal to everyone.
1429 Uncharted Seas can be played across multiple devices and on the go with a smartphone or tablet and is available to play at casino77.com.
