As the year draws to a close, Microgaming software provider decides to rollout something unusual for this time of the year, and it is quite refreshing. Their new online slot will take you on an adventure to the Scottish Highlands, and spinning the reels will help save the life of an immortal warrior who can be killed only by decapitation.
The Epic Story
Most of you already know this age old story about a swordsman Connor Macleod better known as Highlander. This narrative of the immortal warrior was put into a movie, a TV show, animated series, and computer games. The story can be found in comic book series, novels, and finally here we have Microgaming which took a swing at creating the Highlander slot.
The slot went live yesterday, October 6th, 2017, and it invites you to join the battle of ages and relive the legend of the immortal swordsman which unveils on the 5x3 grid with 243 pay-lines.
This kind of masterpiece has a large fan base which is one of the main reasons that we have no doubt that Microgaming did an amazing job. However, let’s see what you can expect from these reels.
Let’s Get Spinnin’
As we are already used to see in Microgaming slots, it is no wonder that this one also has amazing graphics which will transport you to Scottish Highlands of 1536 with the stormy landscape as the backdrop. You will really feel that immersive element here which will surely make you a part of the unfolding action.
If you land the bonus feature you will get 10 extra spins which will take you to the streets of New York. As you spin the reels, you will get to hear the 80s soundtrack playing in the background, and some symbol animations which will surely bring the movie to life, and you, as a player, will gain some exquisite gaming experience.
Of course, you can always seek Wild symbols. As you spin the reels you will come across two powerful wild features: Quickening Wilds which happen when the lightning strikes, and the Stroke of Sword which can turn 2 scatters wild and thus inheriting all the functionality and winning potential of a regular Wild symbol.
This Highlander undertake has gotten everyone hyped, especially the guys from Microgaming since they are very satisfied with everything they’ve done with this game.
The Games Publisher at Microgaming, David Reynolds said: "Highlander™ is an iconic brand, and the game studio have worked tirelessly to create an online slot that pays homage to the 80s movie and its cult classic status. An epic soundtrack composed by our game studio is a great tribute to the brand. The features in the game perfectly represent the movie."
Everything seems to fit in quite nicely in this game, however, we will invite you to take it for a test spin on Highlander because after all, you’re the ones who will have the final say. In any case, we believe that you will not be disappointed.
