Shifting Seas is the first of its kind full-blown swashbuckling pirate-themed slot by Swedish renowned developer, Thunderkick. The game simply sends the player on an epic journey across open seas; in the company of pirates hunting for priceless treasures.
In the background is a calm and clear sea with an idyllic treasure island. We can see the sun setting while golden shimmers and wrecked boats reveal the valuables in the bonus round. Enjoy the game as you taste the creative dynamic reels engine.
Up to 117,649 Ways
Shifting Seas feature six reels and up to 117,649 winning ways. Matching symbols on consecutive reels and aligning from left to right from reel one leads to a win. All unique combinations have a payout.
The Wild symbol can substitute all other symbols except the scatter symbols. The main highlight of the base game that proceeds even to other features is the avalanche nature of the symbol that results in a win. These symbols are replaced by new or existing ones falling from reels above them. The process continues until no further winning combos are present.
Players have numerous special features to activate in Shifting Seas. The Boost Shift feature yields a new reel that is added to the leftmost position of the game area. All symbols that previously occupied the leftmost reel migrate to this new reel.
The symbol rush feature is also crucial. It transforms 4 to 8 symbols into matching symbols on any reel. Of course, this increases your winning chances as the sole aim is to land matching symbols on adjacent reels.
Special Wild Feature. A special wild symbol is either part of the payout or pushed out of the game area. When this happens, a corresponding wild feature activates.
The avalanche feature is another highlight of this game. Symbols contributing to a winning pattern are replaced by new ones falling from the reels above. The process continues till no more are falling.
If the bonus symbol is pushed out during the Shift Win features, a bonus spins round with 8 free spins is triggered. The round starts at the end of the Shift Win. The feature is re-triggreable because when the Shift Win pushes another bonus symbol out, the player gets another round, but this time with lesser spins (4).
During the bonus, a Wild Reel feature can appear on any reels. It shows up initially on the first reel but moves one position to the right after the shift win. The Wild follows the movement of the reels and carries with it different multipliers starting with X1.
If the Shift Win pushes out the wild reel feature, it reappears, but this time on the leftmost reel. This upgrades the existing multiplier by X1 and awards an extra free spin.
Shifting Seas is a great slot with incredible in-game features on every spin. Every win can result in increased rows on the reels, a process that yields up to 117,649 winning ways. You also enjoy its high volatility and a maximum payout of X1,500.
