Looking at this Loose Cannon game for the first time reminded me of another similar pirate theme game, Ghosts Pirates. I like playing Ghosts Pirates and I have played it numerous of times already, but only a few times so far on Loose Cannon. I like the graphics and the overall quality of the game although they are not actually brilliant in any sense. Comparing with Ghosts Pirates, Loose Cannon would lose out slightly. But, a game is not about quality of the graphics, but more on its potential for good payouts, which players are looking for.

The Ship is the Wild symbol, it doesn't pay anything for itself, it doesn't double any wins with it, but substitute for other symbols, except for the Scatter symbols. Whenever it lands anywhere on reel 3, it becomes a Stacked Wild Reel, both in the base game and during the free spins. Once stacked, the ship may randomly fire cannon shots to the left and right of it, converting some symbols into Wilds. It is possible to get all 15 Wilds on the reels. That is good. The Compass is the Scatter symbol, appearing only on reels 1, 3 and 5, and getting all three of them pays 5x the total bet, plus 15 free spins without any multiplier, but all wins are paid both left-to-right and right-to-left. The Free Spins game can be retriggered, but I didn't any in my plays on the game, not even once.

The logo 'Loose Cannon' pays 8.3x the total bet for 5 of them, the Pirate pays 6.6x, the Lady pays 5.8x, the Monkey pays 5x, and all the lower symbols pay from 3x to 2x, all per total bet for 5 of each kind. Overall, a low paytable that would make getting nice big wins rather difficult to get.

In my few plays on this game, the Wild Ship landed on reel 3 many times, but doesn't always fire the cannon shots. When it does fire them, usually only one symbol would be hit and gets converted into a Wild. The hits were mostly on reels 4 or 5, which helped very little in getting new wins. Only in the Free Spins game would more of the cannon shots make a hit to create new Wilds. However, the paytable indicates that all symbols in the game can be converted into Wilds, for all-of-a-kind grand win. Hmm, if you're lucky enough. I couldn't even get a handful of them, hahaha. Nonetheless, Loose Cannon did give me some nice decent wins in the Free Spins games, from about 20x up to 70x my bet amount, so that's not so bad at all.

Loose Cannon is an interesting slot game coming from Microgaming. It has 5 reels and 243 ways to win. This game has a pirate theme, so you can see a treasure map, pirates, and a treasure chest on the reels. What makes this game so interesting and appealing is that it contains both free spins and a wild stack. It also has great payouts during the base game. You can easily land five same symbols at the same time on an active pay line and earn some great wins.

I remember when I played this game for the first time I got 5 Loose Cannon symbols on the first spin and a win of 10 euros. After that I played more than 100 spins with very minimum or no wins at all. I was playing the game with 1.20 euros per spin which meant that I was losing money very fast. The wild symbol appears on the third reel and then it turns into an expanding wild for better winning combinations.

I finally landed 3 scatters after a very long session and I got 15 free spins. On the first spin I got an expanding wild on the third reel and it threw a torpedo and it turned another symbol into wild. The expanding wild was appearing very often during the free spins but it wasn’t hitting the target always. Then I got a big win on the 7th spin which was 65.70. Then I retriggered the free spins round and I finished the bonus round with a total of 133.52 euros. At this point I realized that this is an amazing game, what else I can say about it. You can boost your balance in a very short time with a few big wins. After this session I started playing this video slot very often and I would suggest the same to everyone, it is definitely worth trying it.

I like to play video slots which theme is about the pirates and Loose Cannon is one of them. This game has 243 pay ways and it is creation of Microgaming software. I played it a long time ago and I enjoy while I was playing it.

The base game is very interesting because it has wild cannon bonus feature. When wild land on reel 3 will replicate on the reel to create a wild stack. Later wilds can fire left or right and turn random additional symbols wild. This bonus appear even in the free spins which I think is great. And the best thing is that all 15 symbols can become wilds, so you can have a full screen of wilds.

The free spins feature is good, you can receive 15 free spins. This feature can be also retriggered and winnings pays left to right and also right to left. When I played this game I had a few times free spins feature and my best result was around x 100 bet. But I don't play it so often, I don't know why. Maybe I should play it more, because I think it could be a great game.

After all Loose Cannon is a great game which could provide big winnings. And I like it very much. I would play it more in the future, I like payouts and also the theme. The graphics are good so as the sounds. I think Microgaming software made a great game and I would recommend it to all to try it out.
The only thing which bothered me was that 2 scatter symbols don't pay anything back. I got many times two scatters and I wish at least my bet back or x2 bet. And the free spins could be at some multiplier. Otherwise I don't have any other bad words about this video slot.
Loose Cannon it is Microgaming video slot. This game I played many times, and have quite enough experience with it, but this days I am almost stop playing it, because it is hard to see potential here. No, not it is easy to see that this game can pay a lot of money, but it is never pay so. So I am just tired from it, and not playing this game anymore.

Loose Cannon it is 243 lines game. Game with pirate theme, I like it, and have zero complaints to Microgaming about look of this game, sounds, animations - everything is great.

Apart from many other 243 lines games, there is only one wild, it appear only at third reel, but it is expand, and also have feature, which can highly boost winnings. Wild ship if appear can fire up, and add more wilds on random places. On paytable Microgaming says that all 15 symbols can be wilds, but I am never was even close to this result, but if they said it is possible - then it is possible, why no.

Also it is possible to trigger freespins, but it is hard here. You need scatters on reels 1 3 5, and then you will get 15 freespins. Freespins have brilliant chances to pay huge, because winnings start pay not only from left to right, but from right to left too now. This gives good potential to score big.

I played this game enough, and have good wins. Have couple of features which pay me more than 100x total bet, once I remember I hit 300x total bet during freespins, ships add couple wilds, and I have couple 5 of kinds. But generally it is very annoying and hard to get freespins, plus usually ship adds just one wild, or just not fire up. Be ready to be crazy mad when playing this game, because sometimes it is just sucks money, because payout for 5 of a kinds quite low.
Payouts is generally low, and also sometimes middle ship just do not shoot good.

I have always liked the way Microgaming deals with the appearance of their games, in the case of the slot "Loose Cannon", theme has a color scheme that makes it extremely attractive, plus the selection of the characters in this game is quite right to the extent that look pretty friendly despite being pirates, background music is also pretty cool and very appropriate considering the central topic of this slot.

Microgaming is the specialist in games with 243 ways to win, commonly used in many of its slots of 3 x 5 reels, more lines also means that the game is more dynamic in the sense that you are constantly getting hits, no matter if they are big or small but it keeps morale high in the player and therefore always the interest level increases progressively as time goes by spins. Due to the high number of paylines the pay table does not look very strong, but that does not mean that its rates are unfair, because in addition to the good hit average, Loose Cannon has included in its arsenal two special features that make it a potentially profitable game, these features are "Wild Cannon Bonus" and a round of free spins.

- Wild Cannon Bonus: when a wild symbol appears on the middle reel, this is replicated throughout the reel and then cannons can start shooting bullets everywhere, and in every place a bullet drops it will become a wild symbol and the rules say that all the 15 symbols can be turned into wilds. Personally I managed to get up to 7 wilds only, but it was enough to me for getting a Super Big Win forming multiple lines that mainly involved the symbol of pirate girl.

- Free Spins Feature: it is activated by the appearance of 3 scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5, after this happens, 15 free spins are awarded to the player and during this round you can get hits by forming lines both left to right and from right to left, in addition this feature can be re-triggered indefinitely.

I think this game has 3 characteristics that I love in a slot, it is easy to play, looks and sounds good and most importantly, has decent potential to earn a few dollars, if we are lucky enough, of course.

Somewhere on one of the many existent seas, next to one of the thousands of islands still unknown, there is a pirate ship anchored in a golf. In the background plays a holiday music and the pirates count their money and are happy for the rich loot they just had. All the necessary characters are present: he, the pirate with a pistol, she a corsair with a sword, the ship mascot which is a monkey sitting on barrel full with gold coins and a crab dancing on table full of drinks.

This is the “Loose Cannon”, one of those Microgaming slots that make the life of the player nice because simply they are there. “Loose Canon” is not a top Microgaming slot, is not one of those slots where you win or lose fortunes that you have collected for months, but also this is no weak slot. As I said, this is one of those hundreds of Microgaming slots that have to be tried. The story is beauty, and here and there the ship with the same name “Loose Cannon” is Extended Wild on the central reel and with the help of its cannons and cannonballs turns adjacent symbols into Wild. Another “splash of color” in the game is the Free Spins round, when the pirates decide to sail offshore, and the music becomes more pronounced. Also now the slot starts paying in both directions of each payline.

Without realizing I played pretty much here, because I was caught by the atmosphere and the story line of the slot. And although at the end of some 300 - 350 spins I was in loss with more than 30 Euro (even at minimum bet of 30 cents/243 ways) I have been satisfied. For sure, some will say that all symbols pay for “3 of a kind” less than the bet and when the ship “Loose Canon” is Extended Wild on reel 3, it does not offer more than a Wild (in the paytable you are told that there may be up to 15 simultaneously Wilds on reels – just a story!).

But me, especially I liked the story of pirates (although it has been repeated on several slots until now) and the music taken like from the dances and parties of the pirates, that accompanies this story.
Loose Cannon is a Pirates themed slot produced by casino software provider Microgaming. I’ve been able to experience this slot a couple months ago. I wasn’t too sure what to expect as it seemed like a basic 243 ways to win slot with five reels, but without the random features some other similar formatted slots are known for.

However, the theme itself and the background music is very inspiring and that definitely played a role in me enjoying this game. This game does offer something different though as well and therefore it’s definitely worth checking out.

The minimum bet is only €0.30 but I experienced this game myself on €0.60 bets at 32Red some time ago. What I remember is that I didn’t completely understand how some combinations ended up paying me. But after checking the paytable I came to the conclusion that this game pays from left to right and right to left during free spins. So that’s definitely a nice feature.

In addition it also has wilds and scatters. The nice thing about the wild on reel 3 is that it’s an expanding wild that covers up the whole reel and shoots cannons randomly to fill up other positions on the other reels. Apparently it can fill up all 15 positions. Needless to say I never came further than 3-4 other positions.

The scatter symbol only appears on reels 1, 3 and 5, but I managed to trigger it twice. You then win 15 free spins, but the feature can be re-triggered for another 15 spins. I must say the game is a bit hectic like the life of a pirate is.

My best wins during base game were a couple of 50 x betsized hits, while during free spins I managed to hit more than 100 x my betsize. Enough for me to continue playing another game with my increased budget. I’ll definitely check out this game again whenever the opportunity arises.

Loose cannon it is new Microgaming game release, not newest, but I think this game come live somewhere this year, but unfortunately from what I see game did not become blockbuster, and it is not very popular with players this days.

I like game theme and layout, symbols nice, and everything made here good, I can not complain and my eyes are not tired after I playing this game.
Game has FS feature, which can be triggered by 3 scatters on reels 1, 3, 5 and I think I am not only one who do not like such way of trigger feature, this force to see many two scatters, but without third. And also I do not like slots where I can not get 5 scatters. Base game has wild feature, wild at this slot can appear only on third reel, but it is expanding wild with a chance to add more wilds, when this ships shoot from it cannons (yeah! see game name). During freespins ships usually add more wilds, and moreover wins now count from right to left too.

I tried this game not many times, but definitely more than 10 times. At all I like it, my best session on this slot was from 30$ deposit at 32red with 50% bonus, that was just when this game was released, and I just want to try it. I start from 0.6$ bets, a bit high, but still I feel luck, and my feelings do not cheat me, and after about 30 minutes I clear my deposit bonus and request 230$ to withdraw, and moreover I left 70$ to play with. Good result for such slot.

I think it is underrated video slot by players, it is good one, and not boring slot to play, I like it and rate with 8 stars. Also must go game for all, who love pirates and ships, why now, layout is also important!
