Quest for Treasure in the New World
Sails of Gold is a 3-row, 5-reel, 10-adjustable payline, online video slot set against a balmy shoreline complete with palm trees and a dusky sunset. The reels themselves resemble a great white sail. Both the view and the sail create the illusion that players are standing on the deck of Christopher Columbus’ ship. The music takes on a subtly adventurous tone with instrumentals enhanced by rumbling drums and deep base notes. Interspersed throughout the music we hear the creaking of wooden planks on the deck and the ticking of the ship wheel as it turns.
Sails of Gold displays values for Balance, Total Bet and Win in cash along the black strip lining the bottom of the slot screen. Those same values are also displayed in coins just beneath the reels. Wins flash across the screen highlighting each individual winning payline. To select a Cash Bet ranging from 1p-£50, adjust the Bet/Line (1-5), number of Lines (1-10) and Coin Value (0.01-1.00) at SlotsMillion. Paytable values do not change as the bet changes. Pays are listed in coins only, and wins are calculated by multiplying pays by the Bet/Line.
This online slot has 10 symbols. Half reflect the Christopher Columbus theme and the other half are familiar symbols found in a deck of cards. The 2 special symbols include a Captain Wild symbol and a Ship Scatter symbol. The Captain Wild can form its own winning combinations and substitutes for all regular symbols. The Ship Scatter symbol triggers Free Spins and transforms into a Golden Ship Wild symbol during Free Spins. There are 8 Sails of Gold regular symbols which, listed in order of highest to lowest value, include Shield, Gems, Compass, Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10.
Sails of Gold pays left to right, so get 2+ Columbus Wild, Shield-Compass symbols, or get 3+ of any symbol to form a winning combination starting from reel 1. Profiting along a single payline depends on the number paylines selected. With all 10 paylines active, get 3+ Captain Wilds, 4+ Shield-Compass symbols or 5+ of any symbol to profit. With only 1 payline active, get 3+ of any matching symbol to profit. Of course, selecting all 10 paylines gives the best odds of winning.
The highest paying, Sails of Gold, slot symbol is the Captain Wild (5.000, 1.000, 100, 10) giving the base game the potential to award up to 25,000 coins along a single payline. Factoring in the possibility of winning along all 10 paylines, the Captain Wild gives Sails of Gold the potential to win up to 250,000 coins each spin. With a Coin Value selection of 1.00, that equates to a huge Jackpot win of £250,000.
