In Age of Discovery, Microgaming gives us a slot machine which is inspired by the explorers of medieval Europe, the ones that discovered America and new routes to India, across the ocean. The game doesn’t neglect the things that explorers would’ve found in America, and so there are a number of tropical fruits among the symbols of the game. As features, Age of Discovery video slot includes a Treasure Bonus, a scatter and a wild. 5 reels and 25 lines make up the layout of this game, while the big prizes can go up to $30,000.
Betting and Prizes
Age of Discovery casino game lets you modify the wager as you want to, and to start with you get to decide how many of the 25 lines you want active. For each line that you activate, you can use between 1 and 10 coins. Finally, you decide on the value of the coins, starting at $0.01 and going up to $0.50. Bets of up to $5 are possible for one line, or up to $125 for all of them.
The top payout mentioned by the game is at 6,000x, or 60,000 coins. Considering the maximum coin denomination, you can walk away with a $30,000 jackpot.
Age of Discovery Slot Features
First among the features would be the wild, a natural choice in this case, since it is the one to offer the biggest prize. You can get its help in its capacity as a wild, if it lands in just the right position, or you can use multiple wilds on the same line, to get big prizes, as high as 6,000x the line wager. As I mentioned above, it can bring you a prize of $30,000.
Next, we have the scatter symbol, whose only role is that of a trigger for a prize of up to 80x the bet. Multiple scatters, appearing anywhere on the reels, will get you that prize, and that’s about it. The image is an interesting one though, the symbol showing off a monster as imagined by map makers.
The final feature is a Treasure Bonus, which is basically a scatter symbol that can activate a bonus game. You need it to appear 3 to 5 times to get the feature. Once inside, you can hope to win up to 32,250 coins.
Theme & Design
The graphics of the Age of Discovery are better than the average slot machine. The images are all at least partially inspired by explorers, and luckily the poker cards are missing. You have about five types of tropical fruits, including avocados and bananas, plus the images of sail ships, gold coins, sea monsters, a compass and a sextant.
Age of Discovery offers a lot to those that enjoy adventure, and what better game to play than one that celebrates what early explorers accomplished.
