Smooth Sailing

Smooth Sailing Online Slot by Microgaming and Gold Coin Studios is a classic-style slot that plays out on the high seas as you relax on a luxury ship. Your view from the deck is frameless reels where the friendly captain and the ship’s components act as symbols. The bonus round sees you assemble ships to claim prizes and the gameplay is enhanced by bonus features like free spins and multipliers.

Game Symbols

  • 9 to A card royals are the low-paying symbols.
  • A bell, a ship’s wheel, an anchor, and a captain’s hat alongside gold tickets and a cocktail are the high-paying symbols.
  • The beaming captain is the wild that substitutes for any symbol except for the scatter.
  • The scatter is either a cruise ship or a golden ticket that will trigger free spins.

Bonus Features

Gold Coin Bet

This opt-in feature will increase your bet by 1.5x, and in exchange, golden ticket scatter symbols will be added to the reels to give you twice the chance of triggering free spins.

Free Spins

When 3 scatters land on the reels, you will claim 10 free spins. If you glance at the left side of the reels, a series of segmented boats in different colours is listed.  Your objective during the bonus round is to land the boats in view, left to right, by getting their segments to line up in order. The largest boat is challenging to land as it covers all 5 reels, but highly rewarding as it will pay 6000x your stake if you get it onto the reels.

While this feature is active, the value of the card royal symbols will be boosted by 10x and the appearance of a multiplier icon on the 5th reel will multiply your wins by 2x.

Our Verdict

Smooth Sailing slot offers something a little different with a retro feel and decent potential. The game’s theme evokes the classic feeling of early video slots and delivers on the fun with bright graphics and a smooth island soundtrack. There isn’t much challenge to the base game with most of the winning action exploding when you trigger free spins. The Connectify Pays feature delivers a decidedly different free spins experience and the satisfaction of watching boats come together is only matched by the prospect of the game’s top potential of $240 000.
